Home (Brisbane) + The Ashes

By , November 22, 2006

So I have decided to come home for Christmas. I fly in 25rd December and depart on 11th January. I would love to hang out with you– let me know what your plans are.

A big bunch of the lads, Darragh and Hirst the ringleaders, are off to the Ashes in Brisbane this week. You bastards. About the same time that the Ashes is approaching, Darragh and Hirst conspire to send an email claiming that I have put on weight, succumbed to wearing/purchasing (both are ultimately true) designer sunglasses, and that my hair is thinning. You bastards. Needless to say none of the above are true– plenty of sports to keep me fit, I didn’t purchase my own designer sunglasses, and c’mon Darragh, I mean look at my flowing mane.

So I’m pissed I miss the ashes. I retrospect, it falls on Thanksgiving, and I should’ve scrounged 2 days from work and come to play for 9, Ashes and all. I only have a 2.5 day work week here by default for Thanksgiving.

You did send me an invite a while back Darragh, and now I’m regretting I didn’t take you up on it– have a blast at the ‘Gabba, you too Cherie, Lukey, Hirsty and all the rest. I will be chumping it up on internet radio– it’s some free independent radio station too, so it could be tough.

    Hey Rod,

    seriously kicked some Pommy ass in First Test with test in ADL to start on Friday. Friday is the day I become a street kid in the move back from ABX to BNK. Will arrive in Ballina on Dec 4th and unload on Dec 5th. If you have some Internet time check out http://www.frequentflyer.com.au search for humour and have a look at two of my posts there.

    Looking forward to seeing you in January

    Love

    Dad
