Advent-ures in boggling  
How, Australia? How?? You are No Fun. Thank goodness for the second half of your batting order.

The ONE thing Australians could do better than other countries, and they've blown it. Honestly.

(Although, tbh, I don't really care about cricket, I find it dreadfully boring. I'm a traitor to my country.)

(Also, are you as ridiculously pleased as I am that Oprah has left the country? I was beginning to dread turning the television on because it was just all about bloody Oprah.)

SO pleased the Oprah bandwagon has moved on! I am sure she is a lovely woman, but enough already!

No Fun At All. Mind you, it's been No Fun for such a while that I now find myself unable to really gel with or recognise most of the players. I did sit down for a while this afternoon to watch... but it was too depressing. And boring (not because I usually find cricket boring, rather this was boring cricket).

I miss the Seventies ... Lillee and Marsh were at least highly entertaining when England was losing, so I didn't mind as much, and teams were better matched. And yes, it was dull. Thank goodness for Hussey and Haddin and Johnson putting a few runs on the board!

Have they read the rules? They're allowed to score runs...

Colly's catch though....

Beautiful catch!

We managed to sneak in a little watching at work, then my mate from Essex bunked off early, around 5 Sydney time. 'If you hurry home,' I told him, 'you might catch the last of the Australia innings.'

'I've called a taxi in hopes!' he replied.

Well I suppose we do need a serious thumping eery now and again to control the hubris...... but we need to get our sh*t together and start playing now, its just getting embarrassing :(
I cheer myself up by considering the fact that our being bowled out means I get to watch those pretty English boys bat though :)

I almost can't watch (I said almost).

Sneaking in updates is hard enough at work, but when you step away for 10 mins for a cuppa and come back to find it has gone from some to many'fer.
