Just checkin' ...

...... that no-one has ever said that you can't have it all!

Beer, pizza, Phuket forum and one sweet little 'MAROON' victory!

Naturally, am prepared for the onslaught IF 'bragging rights' head south after the series but just love current scoreboards - what was it, 1-0 Qld!!!!!

To those of you in Phuket living it up - I hope you were wearing the winning colours!

Cheers

Sorry Andy, was meant to confuse the poms! It is the football with the pointy ends, not the round one! The annual State of Origin series has begun (QLD - maroons V NSW - blues) but you can still have what I'm having - plenty to go round!

Cheers

Hi Tiff, I thought of you last night and wondered if you might be Blues supporters seeing as Rod's a Swan supporter. Sooo glad QLD won, I miss watching the state of origin games from the pub, all we get down here is a delayed telecast at 10.30pm.

KM, apologies if I have given any indication that the big fella is a Swannies supporter, because it's way beyond trying that, even the kids didn't stand a chance when they were enrolled at school with their religion stating 'Sydney Swans', and I'm dead serious, I'm sure they still stare at us! Pretty sad when their first words were 'cheer cheer the red & the white!' (ok, slight exaggeration but not far from the truth.)

Lee, he's actually an ex South Melbourne lad and as for me, well I was born league and married rules! Aren't I just the lucky one! God forbid if I even contemplated going on any holidays before the end of September!

Cathy, I think you just got confused my love - somehow I think the sports bar will find you, not the other way around and the big question being - 'Do they really know what they're in for?' Gary won't let me down though, go you good things!

Ellieta and KM - am more than prepared to eat humble pie, but yes - bring on game 2 even if our track record over the border is not great !

Cheers

Hi Tiff

We're going to Sydney the weekend of both the AFL & NRL finals for a wedding. I can only imagine what someone will be like if it 's a crows and swans grand final on the Saturday. Thankfully (for me anyway), the wedding is on the Sunday and I'm the only one that keeps an eye on league, so I wont have to worry that day.

Lee, I could get struck down from above here but I just don't think I could physically or mentally do another Swans grand final so if it's not our turn this year - I am happy to sit this one out (not that I was able to watch the last 2, I sat under the clothesline with the cat, regardless of how many humans were under our roof!!!) That said, I've just gone in to check on the troops and the 'Swannies' blankets are out (yes, tad chilly for us) but it gets even better - my beautiful baby boy 'Plugger' (9 year old boxer) has his own Swannies 'blankie' too - so I've just tucked him in! Told you KM, it's beyond sickening!

Oops, this is related to the Phuket forum because ......um, I know - You never know what footy teams could be having their end of season trip in October - actually, last year a few of the Collingwood guys were great company and very well behaved but they didn't have a choice - Eddie said so!

Cheers
