    In 30 years time.....

    What do we wish we had done?

    You'll look back on your life and think..........?

    I want to be happily married with kids.

    I hope also that I can look back and say I have enjoyed my job and I have been doing things in life that I enjoy rather than working for money.

    I also hope I can look back and remember the day my book was published.

    Blaze summed it up perfectly for me (except for the book part). Kids + soulmate + bearable job with enough to keep roof over head = content.

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    The odds are that I will be dead - after all, I'll be well into my eighties by then. If I'm not, I'll probably still be waiting for England to win the Ashes again following a fifteen year wait, saying something like "Eeehhh, don't talk to me about cricket. You should have seen that Steve *coughcough* Wayward-Harmison in 2005. He only had two good deliveries - the toe-crusher and the throat ball. Trouble with Ponting and them blasted convicts is they never knew which one was coming. Who'd have thought that the series would end as it did, with Rikki Clarke recalled to the England team and Matthew Hayden arrested for vagrancy?"

    The nurse would then reply "It's time for your ears to be syringed, as well. I didn't say 'cricket' - I said 'enema' - speaking of which, we'd better make it a big one too".

    I would then smile quietly to myself and continue talking to Deadhedgehoggy my pet dead hedgehog whilst dipping my potato chips in some more of that yummy gloss paint.

    Happy days to come.

    Finishing my test cricket/rapping career after playing 100 tests for Australia and recording many successful albums. I'll be married to some hot chick, living in a big house (probably the Sunshine Coast) and starting about 13 businesses. All whilst setting up charities for all sorts of things.

    Uh huh.

    Hard to say.

    If I can become a shareholder in Inter Milan (and make enough money on the stock market) and become a board member, then that is some good living. Who knows, I may not be lifing in Australia.

    I will say one thing, I will either be rich or dirt poor, because middle ground content is not for me.
    Beware the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick once and you suck forever...

    I'd like to have a beautiful long-haired brunette wife, and either a photography, airline pilot, or FC cricket player career.. Preferably not in the UK

    The odds are that I'll be flying regionally in SA, having a modest house, a modest wife, and a better camera

    Oh, and the most kickass VW Golf Mk.1 - Which will be really old by then.. You have to spend your money on the right things in life
