    ARGGGGGGGGGGGG
    Yeah, it's definitely the worst time ever for cricket at the moment.. Just read Pollard has turned down a contract with the WICB again.. Imagine a young Viv or a Bradman turning down the chance to play international cricket.. Thats where we are heading folks

    I've stood behind a batsman (I was behind the net!) facing Shaun Tait.... cricket is definitely not a pansy sport....that was a scary, scary moment and the logical part of my brain knew there was a net between me and the tiny projectile being launched towards me at 150+km/hr

    hell, facing corey in the nets was enough for me, and he was going half pace....

    Yeah it's pushing me to the point where I don't care anymore.

    Surf from the weekend at a spot we checked. A mate and I were tempted to go out but it wasn't as good as it looked. Quite a few weren't makable because they were too fast - Probably needed a ski

    Yeah really seems to hold the big swell does that place. Probably called mini pipeline because Aussie pipeline is already a name for another reef a little further south.

    I've got an epic fart that's just dying to be released. It would come out with a terrific noise and would feel so satisfying. But alas, I'm in a crowded office at work, where that sort of thing is probably frowned upon. They are all wearing headphones, so maybe I could get away with it, but not if there's an accompanying aroma. So instead I've got to suffer, clenching and holding the beast in (with great discomfort) until a later date, by which time it'll probably have decided it doesn't want to come out after all. *sigh*

    The world's no fun.

    Yeah that'd be the simple solution really.

    Or learn to master your 'fake cough' and 'fart' to the point where you can get awya with farting anywhere and anytime,

    Make someone bend over in front of you and relase. Blame them.
