Testicular Cancer.

One of the All Blacks recovered from testicular cancer in his teens to go on to become one of the best young up and coming members of the team.  During the finals one of the announcers expressed his amazement that someone could so quickly overcome the loss of one of one's testicles and go on to become such an impressive sportsman. Victoria was listening to the commentary and exclaimed "Testicles? Wow...and I thought only an octopus had them!"

I was piking....

Yey we won the World Cup!!! Like most I was glued to the TV to watch what I thought would be a walk in the park for the ABs.  It wasn't (a one point win!!) so I am sooooo happy that we have procken the 24 year hoodoo.  Stink that the ABs didn't get this far south for the victory parades.

I haven't got jogging for about 2 weeks.  I have lost all of the hard work of the previous month. It is so depressing. Outside it is just pissing down at the moment. Tjat gives me a great excuse not to go running tomorrow.

I am very busy at work as the end of year rush seems to be starting again. I haven't painted more ages but I have been reading through a book on Fredrick the Great that I bought for $2 at Regent Theatre Book sale.

Argentina Vs All Blacks.

OMG - I find myself interested in Rugby now that we are in the quarter finals....
The ABs played a pretty flat game without Dan Carter. Piri Wepu stepped up though which was good to see.  I can seee now that Dan Carter was such an important Fullback. Our plays seemed a little too "pick and run" without Dan. At least Richie Mcaw's foot held out for the duration of the game.
On Another interesting note it is all hands to the pump for the next few weeks with 2 staff away on holiday and the school holidat classes in full swing. AND we have a visit from the Saudi Cultural Mission at lunchtime.
I didn't go running today because it was too windy.... I hope I am not piking out.

Saturday Morning

Yey! The start if the school holidays! We get to loose the kids for a week up at my mum's house! We can get up to all sorts of mischief next week!
Today I have examining all morning and into the early evening. I have a break in the middle until 4 pm and I will use some of that time to pick up my sister from the airport. This morning was really cold so I didn't go running. So far since the start of my running I have been out on 5/7 of the mornings. I am actually handling the running pretty well. I am not running the full circuit yet but I am also not stopping (which is pretty optimistic). By zigzagging I can get up the hill of death without stopping!

Jogging and Doodle Jump

Well today signalled the beginning of the Summer fitness drive.  My stomach has th horrific girth of 102 cms and people have been commenting on its impressive size for about the last 3 months. Today I crawled out of bed and went on my first jog. It was a pathetic thing but at least it was a start. FOr self ,otivation I intend to post girth updates every 2 weeks. If I can remember correctly from last year it look about 1 month of jogging to have any effect. I scored 33000 on Doodle Jump as well. I am the family record holder - oh the heights I have scaled!
