HI ! Yeah!

Just a few more days til the first games of the Rugby World Cup in French soil! GO BLACK GO! hehehe I'm getting excited just thinking of that first game between the All Black and the Italians this coming Saturday!! hehehe

I'm excited not becoz of the game,( coz the game will be a walk over win for the All Blacks!) It's the company that I will be watching it with that excites me!! A bunch of navy boys from Te KAHA, in little old Lumut! It would be a hoot!!! Just like being home at a sports bar! And it shall be messy and loud!! And not to mention, lots of very drunk guys too, either if we win or lose! hahaha BUT then if we were to win, which is most likely! I might get a LIVE Haka by drunken sailor boys! Oh! Am I giggling like a school girl!

Update: just got the numbers in, there might just be about 50 turning up this weekend for the game!!!!! 50 Sailor Boys!!! A prelude to Saturday night's haka maybe?

Yesterday night close to our hotel there were a group of guys playing rugby on the street at midnight. I think the rugby heat is in France as well! :-)
