Re: The Attention Seekers - Tomic the next #1

Overall, this AO was missing something or I'm getting old. One of the best organised sporting events in the world (despite the fireworks delay), but both men's and women's tournaments were mediocre ;(

Yes, but you will have to muster all your brainpower to unscramble the puzzle: N-Bard

I agree. If it wasn't for the Wawrinka/Nole epic then I reckon it's up there with one of the worst slams in recent years, at least with the big matches.

How are your snow adventures, trip?
I missed the first two sets. Sounds like I didn't miss much.

It literally snowed - really snowed - for one day and that was it. So disappointing. How's the weather where you are? I kinda like the cold weather hehe.

I felt the same, but chalked it down to the fact that I've been watching the matches on livestream which isn't as fun as watching them on an actual TV. There weren't really any stand-out matches except the Djokovic/Wawrinka one...which I didn't watch.

Can't believe I'm saying this, but...tennis is actually kind of dull without Nadal.

What's that? I don't get it.

Alas, it didn't have my desired result though.

Yeah!! Last week's episode was so shit. I know it's a TV show and isn't meant to reflect real life but I couldn't handle the numerous breaches of professional ethics that Mike committed - not acting in the client's best interests in the settlement negotiation, breaching privilege...oh wait, he's not even a real lawyer in the first place. I'm honestly still watching this just to drool over Harvey. I haven't watched the latest one yet though. Have you caught up with the show already?

Re: The Attention Seekers - Tomic the next #1

Happy to help you out there mate, it was B-Nard. How are you doing your Masters?

I've just watched the episode you described then. Thank god I'm pretty ignorant to law stuff, looks like you were in immense pain throughout. Replace Harvey with Rachel and we're in the same boat. Idemo Nole.

I actually agree. When's he coming back? Djokovic/Murray matches are so boring.

Who's B-Nard?

I've become way too acquainted with the library. I forced myself not to go to school today. Gonna go out for coffee in a while. How's life?

Rachel isn't even that hot. I wish they'd get rid of Mike and let it be the Harvey Specter show.

What happened to 'ajde'?

Bernard Tomic. This guy:



Life's idemo mate. Going to move in to my new house over the next week or two so that should be a laugh. Noodles for dinner every day me thinks... not that big of a change when I think about it in that way though..

No way I have the mental fortitude to keep it up this year.

Today's doting mother update:

Little G spent 2am- 6am perfecting the Nole roar. Only a matter of time before he becomes the #1 tennis player in the world adored by millions of fans all over the world.

Idemo being used as an adjective. What would be different about the new house that would make it a laugh? Do you cook? I ask this because I've been banned from using the hob in my room since last week (because my building is so gimpy) and I'm fucking sick of hunting for food outside.

Didn't watch more than 3 games of the match, doesn't sound like I missed much. Still glad Nole won
