“If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.” — Mitsugi Saotome

"OH KAY, BOY-Y-YS: eets toime for a goime orv backyard creecket..."

this game tends to spontaneously happen whenever extra lads turn up at our place... *especially* if Hubby is home.
it's always accompanied by his legendary commentating, in a roilly LOUD New Zild accent, "The-aaaat's a siiiiiiiiiiiix!!" "Yew gooooohw bowy!!!" "'E's owwwwt!!!"

and between overs, (or when the ball gets hit over to the neighbours' and a fence-manoeuvre is necessarily performed), there's always time for a quick game of *samoan kung fu* (can't remember *who* named it that lol) which is really an elaborate variation of paper/scissors/rock... but there's a LOT of hollerin' "Haaaahr!!" "Heeee-arrrr!!" "Seee-ohhhhh!!!" in loud testosterone-amped tones... and if you win the paper/scissors part, you quickly point North/South/East/West and try to get your opponent to point the same way. and if he does, you get a point.

oops, Chris got caught out... it really is the most hilarious thing to play, and even more hilarious to behold.

Owh Waow, I'm really loving those sexy contours on your lawn right now. How long did it take you to mow it like that?

what is the DEAL with your lawn??

I LOVE the nz accent.....I think my first real exposure to it was when I saw "Whale Rider." Then, listening to Peter what's his name, director of LOTR....It's nice.

I am pleased to see that you are in accordance with clause 13.4b of the official rules of the SKFF (Samoan Kung Fu Federation) that require all ranked tournaments of the art to to be fought on a badly photoshoped or otherwise digitally enhanced backyard lawn within 2o yards of a sheep paddock. Well done my young apprentices.

Reminds me of 'rounders' we played in England when I was a little girl.

You know you must share about the grass now ;).

well, the grass is usually green, but it had a great shadow of moi in the middle of it, which i just blasted by super-quick blonde copy-and-paste...
but hey, it might get fixed:

i have a wee challenge for you: to do a better job of photoshopping The Grass than i did... and i'll post the corrected photo here with acknowledgement in full lol

This is my first time here, and I'm an American, so I don't understand cricket. But I've gotta say hi to anybody who likes Madeliene Peyroux and has 5 kids. Also, it's winter here, so I'm terribly jealous.

This sounds SOOOOOOOOOO familiar....not sure about the *Samoan Kung Fu* though.....Your boyz might have to teach the Ed boys that, next time we're together.
