Best. Christmas. Ever.

December 27, 2006

I must have been really good this year because Father Christmas bought me just what I always wanted. A small party on a friend’s farm was the plan for Christmas eve, but the plan quickly changed when the girls mentioned that the next house down the road had a group of backpackers staying there who were stuck without a car or somewhere to go.

I volunteered for the mission. Imagine my surprise when I found this – in the middle of nowhere on Christmas Eve…

So Warney is going to retire after the boxing day test. Cricket will never be the same without him. Here’s a look at some of the best wickets of his career.

Thanks to The Sun, I now have a new adjective to describe crap like this.

I Give Up

December 19, 2006

It’s extremely sad that something that is a fairly standard promotion elsewhere in the world makes front-page news in Australia:

A NIGHTCLUB party where bikini-clad women can drink as much as they want for free has been slammed as unsafe, disgusting and demeaning.

Rape crisis counsellors and alcohol experts said the party reduced women to sexual objects and exposed them to the risk of extreme intoxication and sexual assault.

Exposing yourself to extreme intoxication is the whole point of free drinks. As for wearing a bikini exposing you to sexual assault, didn’t we try to deport some dude for saying the exact same thing a few months back?

This party will of course be banned by the fun police (ludicrously referred to in the article as “alcohol experts”).

This country is fucked.

Update: Even Communist China doesn’t ban Ladies Night.

Update II: Party cancelled.

Wait for 4 hours in a nightspot patrolled by drunken, violent idiots for a taxi that never comes instead!

Snatching Victory

Our cricket match on Saturday was the scene for one of the greatest comebacks in suburban cricket history. Chasing 191, we came back from 6/66 to win by 1 wicket.

Take special note of #11, A. Ahmed, who came out with 39 runs required for the last wicket and made 33 not out. In his first game of 1st grade. Unbelievable.
