Well sounds as if your having a shithouse time! Wish I could not be there. I don't ever want to go esspecially immediately. Keep up the miserable diary so I can keep reading about your awful holiday.
Hope you get through it,
Stop being sooooo positive Micko!! Sounds like Brissy's going well. Look forward to hearing more from you soon.

From Mum - Tuesday, 12th July 2005, 22:06 (GMT)
Gee, Fella !
That's a great effort. A summary of the good times & experiences - hope you can keep it up during ALL your travels. [only thing (I know!) you didn't mention was London winning Olympics. perhaps it didn't excite Man-mates?]
Just love it ---- & look forward to some photos.
Love from Mum
Been there done that re the Olympics Mum. Only real joy was that they changed the channel so i couldn't watch the end of the state of origin. Will try my hardest to keep everything updated.

Browny mate good to hear that all is going well over there! Qld are crap! The last game was so bad that I almost turned it off, but watching qld get absolutely smashed! Mate wallabies look not bad this year, all blacks demolished lions v.badly so looks like a tough season ahead but big find is the wendall, who is playing the best ffoty of his career. hate to say it but looks like a good buy for nsw at the moment....and will be laughing when all the try scorers against qld next year are rogers, sailor & tuquiri!
typical nsw form. seems to be the same in everything. qld creates the legends, nsw buys them. Bit like business isn't it.

you are a funny little man
Zack or Justin, don't know, but's its one of you.
From Charlie McWilliam - Wednesday, 13th July 2005, 00:22 (GMT)
This sounds typical of London. I am extremely jealous. We used to carry on like this - any excuse for a party, it is an absolutely brilliant time. Keep up the antics it sounds like vintage poo form.

Cheers Charlie, also not very different to the old days at GrainCorp. Enjoy those trucks.
From George Rhodes - Wednesday, 13th July 2005, 22:27 (GMT)
Great idea Charlie, so good to hear the news. I will be in NYC from 23 August for 5 days, if you are going to be there then (although I suspect not) let me know, it's be great to catch up.
Take it easy,

From Concerned friend - Thursday, 14th July 2005, 16:52 (GMT)
Sounds like you are having a blast! Just promise me you steer clear of the gangs, I hear they are worse than Sydney.......
Hope all's well in India Bugden !!!
From Bill Bailey - Wednesday, 27th July 2005, 02:24 (GMT)
Had an option to straddle any spreads lately? Markets here are pretty flat.

From Pikey - Thursday, 28th July 2005, 22:48 (GMT)
Piss off Poo

Home is very empty - Split's bed so cold, food dish still there etc. Sob, sob.
Lord's 2005 Test a 'bottler' to attend.
PLEASE 'stop still' if a Bobby speaks to you !! Dad & I were working on the theory Clapham should be close enough to 'lots of cop coverage' to be safe. Got to be positive - !!
Have to keep practising my tennis before we next meet --?!
Some great photos fella - hope you see some UK countryside soon.
lots of love

Good news Charlie

The " donation pool " to secure your release from the drug running kidnappers in Colombia is now up to $3.80 and a Gatoraide cap... so travel in peace

Sounds like you are having a great time ! Good man and enjoy !@
SWEET, you guys at Man Australia are so generous!
From Justin - Tuesday, 30th August 2005, 22:12 (GMT)
Charles, I have two things to add.
Firstly, does Gibbsy the snowman realise that he was catching rays in the shade?
secondly, you are a big unit.
Cherio then.
I'll pass that on mate, and thanks for reminding me just how massive I am. Hear you've made the final's at colleagues, hope they remember your last finals performance and drop your sorry arse.
From matty g - Wednesday, 31st August 2005, 04:04 (GMT)
Rome's a beautiful place. I have to get back to France soon.

From Jamo - Wednesday, 31st August 2005, 06:59 (GMT)
Seems like in the European hinterlands/carvery has got the better of you!!!!!
No.... good to see you're having a great time and starting to get very itchy feet about getting over there.....
Yes, finals time for colleagues....Caldwell is till gay and Pugsley has turned to Buddism.....

Over and out.....
yeah mate, have to admit the Italian food did get the better of me. Now off to the land of hamburgers and fries !! Maybe a few less pints would help too ! Great to hear colleagues hasn't dropped off since my departure.
From monika - Sunday, 1st January 2006, 11:08 (GMT)

From Bops - Friday, 23rd September 2005, 02:11 (GMT)
Have a great time in the wild west, and don't miss any baseball matches. You seem to have "done" NY pretty thoroughly> Keep on the right side of the road ! All well here, cheers, Bops.
great to hear from you Bops. Will try our hardest to keep on the right side of the road, til now its just been hard enough to keep on the road, too much to look at out the window. Great to hear things are well at home.
