RealVampiresDon'tSparkle by me

Oooohhhh ... I'm all a'flutter

The new X-Box 360 is finally being released in Australia at midnight tonight!!!!  Apparently from J's reaction this is how I should be feeling.  It's like the second coming - well in a way it is.  It's the second generation X-Box.  Mr Gates must be so proud of his new baby.  J will be attending the midnight revival session where young males will gather and worship their new God, and take the little green and black boxes home to cherish and play with for many days to come.  Just as well J lives vampire hours.  At least I managed to get in and clean his room today, probably won't have that chance again for days, maybe even weeks ... ...

Must admit to being heartily sick of our national anthem,  After winning 54 gold medals so far in the Commonwealth Games, our national dirge has been played over and over and over.  Now I'm over it, although any song that includes the word girt is almost always a winner, "our home is girt by sea".

My bronchitis and pneumonia are abating, and the nagging cough is now almost non-existent.

Studiously avoiding the essay I need to complete by next Monday ::sigh::

Did you know that the American's have 2 litre (liter) bottles of coke? I'm agog!

I know what you mean about our national anthem. Pretty though, ain't it? I actually met a woman last year who had no idea of the words, and yes she went to school from kinder here. Again, agog.

And shhhh, I'm ignoring the whole X-box thing. I'm waiting six months for it to drop a couple hundred, then I MIGHT think about it.

And good news about the illness. Everyone here is coming down with it.
I'd be interested to meet the Aussie that knew all five original verses, but I hope most of us can a leadst manage to mangle the main verse!

I wanted to ignore the whole X-Box thing, but that's not possible with an almost 19 year old son. I should never have bought him that Nintendo game console for his 4th birthday!

The crrent virus seems to be particularly nasty.

Oh, and a big hello to you. Nice to see (read) a new face!!!
And having just reread what I wrote ... please excuse the spelling errors, my only excuse (well two excuses), it's late and I'm using the stupid keyboard on the stupid laptop.
OK, now I've looked at your user profile - do I already know you, but by a different name (I'm old and therefore slow ...)????
Thank you! For a while there I actually thought I may never get better ... but it passed, as everything eventually does :-).
It is getting a little old hand huh? I've watched quite a bit og the Com Games, mostly when I'm at work. LOL
