I ended up going to the footy yesterday after all. One of those spur of the moment decisions. I’m so glad I did too because my team rules! I haven’t been to the ‘G to watch the footy since Andrew was a kid and we got to sit one row back from the fence. Not the best positon to watch the whole game but I like being up close. Plus I got a good view of Kurt Tippett — OMG that boy is bringing the pretty back to Adelaide. This is my review of the game – we rule, Chris Judd sucks, Johncock = awesome, Andrew McLeod – beyond Awesomedome!
We had some mouthy Carlton fans sitting in front of us. We predicted a leave in the last quarter and were right. I don’t get ppl leaving early in the footy. It’s just plain wrong. Anyway we jumped into the front row after they left. A few minutes before the siren it started pissing down with rain but we stuck it out then hung around to sing the club song and get hand slaps 😀
After the game, we met up with Andy and went to his place to watch the St Kilda game (who didn’t play so well). Despite all the footy, I still had a very productive day – got lots of writing done and even finished off the jumper I knitted ages ago. I only had to do the underarm seams but kept putting it off but got mighty motivated by the need for a thick, warm jumper yesterday.
Arrgghhh but I ate far too much. We got food at the bakery to take to the game, cos we’re not paying $1zillion at the ground for a crappy burger then we ordered in dinner at Andy’s – 4 cheese pizza, which wasn’t nearly as special as it sounds since they put all the fetta and goat’s cheese in one quarter! plus gnocchi and chips. Lately when I eat fatty food I get really bad belly aches that last 2-3 days. You’d think I’d learn.
I ended up waking in the middle of the night, so dehydrated from all the salt. I’m thinking of a total takeaway ban for the next few weeks.
