Trivial thoughts - Idol, the Cup, US election

Idol: Ok, I will admit to shedding a few quiet tears - I liked Hayley, now she's gone, life sucks.

The Cup - my each way bet, Lashed & Winning Belle - but what would I know, life sucks.

US Election - as much as I hate to think it, Bush to win - can I say again, LIFE SUCKS!!

Good to do the horse thing to remind you of your Dad.... Melbourne Cup is a big thing here too. When I worked at NZPA, the New Zealand Press Association, everyone was big on the punting. In fact I'm sure at least a couple of the guys were addicts. I know the wife of one of them used to control all the money and just give him an allowance so he didn't gamble their lives away. Nice guy though.

Yes, well it's cause for huge celebration here when we beat your cricketers. And it does happen from time to time. Your lot are just a little too used to winning! And yeah, Shane, what a yob. Feel sorry for his wife having to put up with all his stupid crap. What is most entertaining for us is if we do win, to listen to the very biased Australian commentators trying to explain it away....

Must dig up some con reports. Whose have you read? Sounds like they were both on form. Read on the wangst club that JM was seen wandering round London holding some chick's hand. Hope she was over 20. Or even, God forbid, over 30. There was some rather good wangst piece I remember in which a drunken JM was being told to pull his shit together by his publicist, which included getting himself a girlfriend who a) was over 30, b) wasn't in the business, and c) wasn't some groupie teenager. I remember all the readers cheering.
Bets placed (well actually direct donation to State coffers made), race countdown begun.

Warnie puts the yob into yobbo, not like loveable larrikins such as Lillee, Marsh, Chappell (Ian that is) - can you tell how old I am?

Think it was Moxie's LJ, maybe, some stuff on More Than Spike & Marsters Mobsters. Read the original hand-holding piece - think it ended up wangsted itself - just a mention of JM going into an appearance holding the arm or hand of some woman - haven't seen anymore so don't know if there is anything in it or not, but yeah over 30 would be good!!
