And the Heavens Unleashed Their Fury

A giant water spout descended on East Coast Park today. We were having brunch at Scruffy Murphy's, and suddenly the sky darkened and there was a frightfully loud clap of thunder, followed shortly after, at around 1.05pm by this amazing phenomenon. It ploughed through a little boat that was in its path getting bigger and bigger. I ran and quickly snapped a shot, then got a bit freaked out and ran back to safety before it started pouring.

Ah well, very dramatic and exciting - just the sort of thing to pull one out of the shocker this morning's rugby game. If only the All Blacks hadn't worn those stupid blue jerseys. Everything would've turned out ok.

What's the difference between the All Blacks and a tea bag?

A: The tea bag stays in the cup longer.

(Thanks to Greg for sending this, and cheering us up.)

After waking up at 3am to watch the game, convulsing in stress, hope and then despair, I have decided that supporting a sports team is just TOO emotionally nerve-wrecking.

I'm just so thankful we didn't open the bag of Marks & Spencers lightly salted red duke of york handcooked crisps which we bought on Friday for the game. At least we have one bright spark to look forward to in our week. Mmm... chips...
