Very cool!

And yeah, it was my workmate. Sorry to hear you got that too! Wouldn't wish that on anyone.

Ah well, life goes on. I'm really excited about going to the game tomorrow.

I loved all the opening day celebrations. The Viaduct looked amazing as the waka came in, the crowds along there were incredible, and I'll never forget the opening ceremony at Eden Park - I was so lucky to be there and see that. The fireworks over the harbour looked amazing as well, although I didn't see those until later. They didn't show them on the big screens at Eden Park.

I felt pretty proud of my city yesterday.

It was the first game I have ever been to, and I was completely blown away! The opening ceremony was spine chilling, and the whole atmosphere when the game was on was incredible!
The only downside I thought was the disappointing lack of showing the fireworks on the screen, made worse by being able to just see the tips of some of them near the Sky Tower in the distance from our seats.

Other than that I loved it, I was very proud to be a Kiwi.

Well the US did better today than expected - couldn't believe how well their defence held in the first half. I had a few mates over who were curious about the World Cup and I was trying to explain why things are the way they are in rugby, not necessarily the rules, and the general consensus was "wow, I didn't know rugby was so intense. It just doesn't stop!"

I hate American football. So, so much.

Yeah, I thought the US played superbly. It was great to see them get a try at the end there.

And I agree about American football. Don't see the appeal of it at all. They play for about 5 seconds then stand around and talk for several minutes.

It's really ironic how it's such a technical sport where not much actually happens, and yet the thickest of the thick are the ones who play it.

On a different note, a Facebook ad alerted me to the fact that I can enrol for voting since I was back down under for over a month, so now I'm all set for that!

Excellent! Although I don't have high hopes for this election. When John Key walked out to give his speech at the World Cup opening, I think I was the only one of the 60,000 who booed.

Not that Labour are any better at the moment.

I like how much research you've put into this but I thought you were rather anti-national?

There was a flyer that the National guy sent out and I said to dad that the guy looked kind of dodgy... Dad said he's quite an alright guy so that's why the Labour reps here always have sucked. I am anti-National but when it comes to local I vote for the more deserving person I'm anti-Labour right now too since I can't stand Phil Goff

Never thought I'd say it, but I wish Helen was here

Still firmly believe Helen's the best Prime Minister we've had - certainly in my lifetime.

I really hate my local MP. He's such a dick. I bet he was the one who was behaving badly at the World Cup game over the weekend - his name was mentioned as one of a possible three. He got punched in the face at a U2 gig a couple of years back. Doing Northcote proud.

Hi! Same old, really. Not many of us left around here, it seems. How have you been?

It does seem a bit dead everywhere doesn't it? Shows you the level of fan's commitment to the band though

I'm alright. Uni is slowly progressing and all.

I found out a work colleague was the singer for some band. So naturally I had a listen.

Oh my. He's actually a genuinely nice guy
