Which means you're birthday is close to mine (Mine is March 8th). Yes, yours is very close to St. Patricks day, but mines more than a week before St Patricks day, so I am not super close to a holiday.

Well I'm, on May 3rd which means I'm very close to what we call our Early Spring Bank Holiday. It's meant to commemorate Mayday, but we just have it on the first Monday in May instead of shutting everything down on May 1st, so I have quite a high chance of getting my birthday as a day off work :)

I don't think there's anything wrong with having fears/phobias and admitting to them - I'm absolutely terrified of thunderstorms and I'm not so keen on flying either (especially long-haul flights). Problem is, in our society, it's socially acceptable for women to admit to fears, but more difficult for men.

Of course, there's nothing wrong in admitting you have your phobias...it simply shows that you're human and that you assume them...
Personally, I'm arachnophobiac, yes, Fedex, you're not alone. I suffer vertigo and it is quite a shame when you know that I have to cling firmly to the ladder when I do DIY at home...I tell you it is rather comic for those who happen to witness the situation, but it's a real pain for me! It leaves me only one free hand to work...And I also fear the storm, but mostly because I can't erase from my mind that terrible one which caused so many damages out here in 99, right after Xmas. I can't sleep if I hear the wind blowing outside!

I woulden't necessarily call this a phobia, but I am certainly not a 'spider lover', and I even find it difficult to kill them. I just dont want to be around them.

I understand what you mean Choupi! I quite like spiders and snakes personally - but my fear of thunderstroms is so bad that once, (when one started while I was on the bus coming home from work) - I actually spent 2 hours on the bus going round and round the town rather than getting off at my stop, because I was too scared to walk through the storm from the bus stop to my house! And if one develops when I'm working, I actually get sent home because I'm too hysterical to work - but someone has to take drive me because I won't drive in them or walk to the bus stop!! And - yes - before anyone asks - I have tried many "cures" including hypnotherapy (even Valium from the Doctor),but nothing has ever worked, and I am only grateful that England has no more than 2 or 3 storms each year -sometimes not even than many - which is a great relief to me!

Well Rosie, I do have my own embarassing situations too...as I told up above, I'm paralysed by spiders. And one day, I was at my dads and I found one on the wall in my bedroom. Of course, being paralysed doesn't help me from shouting! So that my bro, who is now well trained to my phobia has run into my room with the firm intention to kill the beast. But he failed... :confused: and the spider has escaped...he has spent almost 45 minutes trying to locate it..with no success...I was about to decide to sleep on the couch in our sittingroom when a sudden frightening idea crossed my mind...And what if the spider had hidden in my bed? It was totally nonsense, replied my bro but I've begged him to check...and guess what? IT was there, right in the middle of the bed, quietly warmed up under the sheets... :confused: I'm convinced from now on that spiders feel my phobia and do all they can to increase it...And don't even think about telling me it's non sense...

Hi guys!!!
I stayed up till 4 am to watch the mix doubles in the Hopman Cup and it was fun! LOL It was really fun to watch Gisela and Coria together, or as they call it here, The Beauty and the Beast LOL!
Anyway, while I was watching it, the comentators remembered David's birthday and they said that when they interviewed him a few years ago, he said he was very happy to turn in that day. The commentator couldn't understand, cause it usually gets overshadow, but David said it was great cause he always had fireworks and huge parties. He thought everyone was celebrating for him, when he was a kid. Just like Mrs Guga said! LOL

Action Jackson

01-02-2005, 02:14 PM
He played alright, not great.
But I think Gisela played much better in doubles than in singles, and her returnrs to Sanguinetti's serve was amazing.
Hey, I'm watching a Gastón interview and he's talking about his match to David and how he felt. It's very interersting, let me finish watching it and I'll post it :)

jazz_girl

When he was playing David he wasn't nervous at all, he was enjoying the moment. But knowing that he was playing so well against David made him realize he was play great tennis. He said great things of David, and that after the match he thanked David because for the first time he was in a GS final and not him.
Then he said that in the final match, he knew Coria was gonna fight in the fifth set, he was sure of that. And he was mentally prepared for it. And that he wouldn't change anything in the world for that moment because it was the happiest of his life.

01-02-2005, 03:07 PM
He said a lot of interesting things, they'll repeat the interview and I'll try to take pics of it so you can see how he is. He seems slimmer.
He said that it was very hard for him to accept the death of his dad, and that it's very hard for him to stay in focus in a match, cause his mind starts going somewhere else. But he's been working too hard in the pre-season and can't let that affect him. The journalist asked him to ask for three wishes for these holidays and he said that these holidays are too hard for him and his eyes were full of tears, so the jouranalits told him, to think of it in the professional aspect and he said: "I want to be among the first 3, fighting for the N°1 spot. Win a Grand Slam, and the big goal is the DC because we deserve it." And he smiled.
Then he talked about his year, he started well and felt great in Australia, till he was beaten by Federer, and he can make two balances in the year: one bad because of all the injuries and another one good because he's still a top ten in spite of everything. And that he's happy that even though it was a very irregular season, he was able to come back strong every time, and he has to thank his family for that cause they are great and always give him the best advices.
He didn't listen to the comments made after the Olympics, beacuse he knows that that people don't know anything about tennis.
He was happy to play in Argentina in Copa Argentina, cause he could felt the warmth of the people in his difficult situation and he was missing it cause he didn't play here in a long time.

Hey guys - thanks for your nice words :) I've just got up after 14 hours sleep :eek: and to be honest I still feel pretty lousy :sad: but I don't have to work today, so I'll stay in the warm all day with the computer and the Doha TV coverage and hopefully feel better tomorrow. Like Fedex says - I'll get over it - it's nothing serious, - just a fever of some kind - and if I don't feel better tomorrow I'll just gave to stay off work for a day. Thanks for your concern everyone.

Thanks Jazz - worst thing is they were meant to be showing Doha live on TV this afternoon, and I was really looking forward to it, but seems we just have ski jumping :sad: So I am sitting here with the heating turned up full and loads of blankets wrapped round me watching these strange men jumping off a ramp in the snow and hoping Roger Federer will start soon!

Yes - we do have Eurosport but it's our own version called British Eurosport. And I know the lucky rest of Europe has Roger's match because I'm following it on the tournament thread, but Greg Rusedski's match starts when Roger finishes,so our coverage won't start til then!! :devil:

Glad Wilby is feeling better! Younger men, hairdye and various skin creams all do the trick. I do miss getting carded though. I bought Champagne for New Years and the guy didn't card me- I asked him if he wanted to see some id.. and he said no- you look at least 25 :mad: Then he tried to redeem himself by saying- but you are a very attractive 25.

The new city is pretty small and very calm, but it's fun. In the beginning it was very hard for me to get used to their mode of living, because my home town is big, all the time everyone is on a hurry, on a high speed...but it's ok now. :) It's very beautiful. Actually I moved from the sea to the mountains. The city is built on three hills.
The university is a prestigious one, so there are many students. During the vacations there is almost nobody on the streets.

Sorry if it's a little late but I'd like to come back on the famous "Vamos" shouted by Gaël...It wasn't meant to disturb or tease or anything...it's just that that word has become totally part of our language here and though many of us French fellows can't speak Spanish, we use it very often...Only have a look at the official dvd of RG 04, for those of you who happen to have it- and I know some of you must have it!- in the bonus footage, before they entered the centercourt for the final, Fabrice Santoro and Michael Llodra have shouted Vamos very loud to wish them good luck!!!! So answered their trainer!!!

I'm reading the news and what the articles say about our win against Russia in the Hopman Cup and it bothers me that all the credit goes to Coria. I mean, I understand that he beat Safin and Dulko lost her single match, but she was the best by far in the doubles and drove Marat completly crazy! She broke his service and was the only player whom the service wasn't broken...

The new city is pretty small and very calm, but it's fun. In the beginning it was very hard for me to get used to their mode of living, because my home town is big, all the time everyone is on a hurry, on a high speed...but it's ok now. :) It's very beautiful. Actually I moved from the sea to the mountains. The city is built on three hills.
The university is a prestigious one, so there are many students. During the vacations there is almost nobody on the streets.
If someone wants to come, just call. Everybody's invited! :)

So whereabouts are you living now Misha? And Jazz - remember EVERYTHING about Coria :devil: bothers me!

Enjoy the day. Tomorrow won't be so bad. Before you know it, you'll forget all the fun of vacation and be deeply submerged in the joys of "hell" aka "work". I only vaguely remember my vacation and it was only over a few days ago! Remember to use that positive attitude......

Short answer is yes. Her name is Vicky and she comes from Argentina too. They were together for quite a few years - then they split up in March 2003 - and quite recently got back together. There are some photos of her somewhere in the Yahoo Group. Hope that helps.
