The second I saw this quiz, I thought "Wow, it would be cool if I got Pi. I damn well better get Pi." And guess what?

Really, anyone who's memorised Pi to 330 decimal places - like myself - has a pretty bloody good chance of being Pi.

And mate, if you're going to go for an approximation, please at least try a bit harder. 3.141592653589793238462643383279502884197169 would be a bit nicer. Closer to the actual number, too. w00t for Pi!

Eeeeeee, rugby today. I'm already wearing my gear. I just REALLY wish that the game was played last week, because today it's too hot to wear my black trousers or All Blacks jacket, and I may just carry my scarf. Tom having to play sport and his game being at another school will make timing a bit tight, but he should make it to the train station on time. But if he's late, I guess Sam'll have to go without him. I just wish Nan had still been here and we hadn't had to find another taker for the ticket. Grr. But going with Sam and Tom should be grand fun.

I need to dig out my All Blacks and New Zealand flags ... (Edit: which I have now done. I would love to get my face painted black with a white "NZ" up at the game, but considering how warm it is, it may just sweat off. I'll see what the temperature's like up there and make a decision then. And I'll take photos of the game. Or at least we're borrowing a digital camera that Mum will take photos with.)

For those of you interested in statistics, NZ and Tonga have surprisingly only played twice (surprisingly because they're relatively close and many Tongan rugby stars play in - sometimes for - NZ). In the 1999 World Cup, NZ won 49-7, and in 2000, they won in an absolute walkover, 102-0. Somehow I don't see Tonga winning again. I'd like to see another massive scoreline. Hopefully Dan Carter'll get another fifteen points. That guy is amazing: 5 internationals, 78 points. That has to be approaching some kind of record. Or maybe not, I don't know.

Got back some assignment and exam results lately.

Henry V exam (essay written during the exam block that I finished half an hour before ANYONE ELSE): A
Henry V play: A-
I'm pleased with that. Especially the essay.

Assignment on why the European settlers denied Aboriginal religion: B+, A, B (for various sections), and I'm pleased with that because out of all the results read out, it was the highest in the class. Heh, I just join it and I top it. Go that.

AND GO THE MIGHTY, MIGHTY ALL BLACKS! THUMP TONGA! MAKE 102-0 LOOK KIND! </fanatical devotion to All Blacks> *calms down*
