Adventures of Gamblegirl
Date: 01 December 2003 Adventures of Gamblegirl: The Unbelievable Has Happened - I'm Shocked!!!! I'm shocked!!! Totally speechless! I've never thought I'd ever be alive to witness this, but yes the unbelievable has happened. England has won a sporting event, I know, I know it's like something out of a bizare dream - England good at sport? So they suck at cricket, cant win a soccer world cup, have Tim Henman as their best tennis player, so surely you could be safe to assume that their rugby team would be s***e as well. Nope not the case... As I sit in an English pub, I'm experiencing the event from a different perspective. The English may suck at sport, but they are great supporters. While Australians are cringlingly embarrassing (I hate the constant reference to doing it for the Anzacs. Personally that's just bad form when they are two seperate concepts and it's just a bloody sporting event!), the English have songs and cheer, heck they even sing their national anthem (and they even know the words!) It's funny but all the press over is Jonny Wilkinson (apparently he's up for a knighthood - what?! He's not? Could have fooled me!) or whinging about how biasedm pommy bashing they are! Well dur!!!! It's not like they aren't doing the same thing. Get over yourself English press. So we lost, you know what? DONT CARE!! It's fun to watch but a) I have to barrack for my country and b) the press here would be unbelievable. Heck, I don't even know the bleedin rules!! Sure it all looks a bit gay to me (Dyl - get on this sport, honey they fondle more ass then...) but I have to say the game was exciting and you couldn't have wanted a better thriller. As I stated I don't know rugby but I know that Jonny Wilkinson has a magic boot, tip to Aussies - DONT LET HIM KICK IT!!!! Congrats English, you've tasted victory, just don't get used to it!!! Here's some jokes that were in the press in the lead up: What's the difference between an Australian and a computer? You only need to punch information into a computer once What's the mark of a level-headed Australian? He dribbes from both sides of his mouth An Australian pilot is coming in to land when the control tower asks for his height and position. He replies: "I'm 5ft 11in and I'm sitting in the front seat." Bruce is driving over the Sydney harbour bridge one day when he sees his girlfriend Sheila about to throw herself off. He slams on the breakes and yells out: "Sheila, what d'ya think ya doing?" Sheila turns around with a tear in her eye and says: "G'day Bruce. Ya got me pregnant, so now I am gonna kill myself." Bruce gets a lump in his throat when he hears this. "Sheila," he says, "not only are you great in bed but you are a real sport too." From the really... seriously? file... yes this falls into this category. For 40 days David Blaine was a right ol' tol, hanging in a box doing JACK ALL. Just in case you missed it, yep, you can buy it on DVD. Man, I can hardly wait to run out and buy that. Forget the special Edition of Lord of The Rings: Two Towers, it's David Blaine for me. Saw this article in the paper Leisure Interest Of The Week. A young mother claims her boyfriend has run off to become a vampire. Rebecca Roberts (oh why does she have to have my name!!), 23, from Burnham-on-Sea, Somerset, told The Sun that Matthew Barratt, 27 left after falling for a woman called Akasha, head of a blood worshipping cult in Ohio. Roberts first noticed his interest when he shaved all his body hair, dressed in black and used her lipstick to redden his eyes. Then he changed his name to Mathau and left unexpectedly for Ohio. "I thought it was just a hobby at first," says Roberts, "Everyone's got the right to one." Yes - all I can say is YOU STUPID WOMAN Bad Career Choice Of The Week. A robber with a speech impediment took so long to stammer out his demand for cash in a bookmaker's shop that he was caught by police. Thomas McPherson shouted at staff for five minutes but the three assistants did not understand he was trying to rob them until he climbed onto the counter. They gave him £341 but police arrived before he could get away. He received a 6 year sentence in Glasgow but personally, he should hand in his gene pool card right now!!! Threat Of The Week. Elizabeth Hurley is threatening to leave the UK because the papers don't give her enough respect. Apparently they keep on referring to her as LIZ and not ELIZABETH. All I can say is go Liz, go on then. Until next time Gamblegirl PS. Am excited girl for 2 reasons. One LORD OF THE RINGS 3 is coming out in 18 days and two, I will be seeing my parents in 21 days.
