Re: going to adelaide...

thanks michelle for the explanation... aaah i know about those digital cameras with full slr functions, my more well-off relatives already have some of those big heavy things lol...... so there is still some corner-cutting, i suppose.

cat in a cage? ;D

yup i can see arnaud's still in the doubles, but he won't have the services of the 'maid in adelaide', ha! i've come home on wed night.

Re: going to adelaide...

half an hour in weekend morning traffic... but i'll need to get there by 7.30, so what with the morning shower etc etc it will take me that long ;D

Re: going to adelaide...

when do you get told which matches u have to do? How many days are you there for? I dont know if liz is definately going tomorrow will have to ask her

if arnaud gets to the doubles final in adelaide he's not going to have a day off. hmm

are u watching hopman via?? There is a ballboy who looks like a mini Arnaud!

Re: going to adelaide...

lol....... i've totally forgotten there's tennis on tv. ;p

i'll get my allocations on the day at start. i'll get the order of play at the same time so i can then ask to swap to another court. well, not after being teased by the supervisor again, i guess. this year they're making us do at least 5 shifts

arnaud can start playing on tuesday can't he? hmmm doubles isn't that tiring. even fat rafter can do it....

Liz is a woman after my own heart, drinking before 5pm!

Via, you think Pat looked chubby, too? I was starting to think I was being excessively critical (one of the old babblers told me I was nuts...) but damn, he looks almost as soft as Peter!

Have fun at the tennis, ladies, and please help me live vicariously through all you young and fun folks...I fully expect some lively reports.

A few notes to remember:

Do not touch Nono's hair without asking permission in French first.

If you are wearing a tutu at a tennis match, keep legs crossed at all times. People on the other side of the court can and will see up your tutu and might just take pictures.

Liquor before beer, in the clear. Beer before liquor, never sicker....

Have fun, girlies!!!!!
