My resolution

I've realised that lately, I've been spending far too much time online, not enough time doing other things I love, particularly writing and reading. So now I'm going to try to make time to do writing and reading. No specific amount of time a day - school can really send my plans haywire - but I do need to focus, particularly on my writing. If I want to be an author, I can't just wait for it to happen, I need to actually work. My story needs some drastic revision. I fear it's not realistic, mainly with the horses involved (I wish I had a decent knowledge of horses).

I also really should pay more attention to my Mum. About 1-1.5 hours ago, she said she was going out. I thought she'd be back by now, but she isn't, and I've forgotten where she's gone. How useless am I? Oh well, I do recall her saying she'd be home for M*A*S*H at 5:30.

Plus, if any of you want to see what rugby union is like, and what exactly this sport I go on about all the time is, there is what will probably be a FANTASTIC match tomorrow night. It starts at 5:00pm my time tomorrow (or at least coverage does; I think kickoff will be at more like 5:20-5:30pm). Now, the USA is something like 14-15 hours behind me (I get confused with your multiple time zones but most people are 14-15 hours behind), so 5pm here would be 2-3am Saturday morning in America. Damn, if the only coverage is live, odds are it's on at a time too awful for anyone to be able to catch it at. Hopefully there'll be a replay at a more reasonable time. I hear you guys have heaps of sports channels over there ...

And if you want the rules of rugby, just check back about 3 weeks in my Journal. I made a massive outline of it in one post.

So yes, go the New Zealand All Blacks tomorrow night! Humiliate the Australians even worse than you did 3 weeks ago, and get our Cup back! (Actually, when you check back on it, I do believe the Bledisloe Cup IS ours, because I'm sure the guy who donated it, Lord Bledisloe, was a Kiwi) This match decides who wins the Cup - there are only 2 games in the series this year (I feel they should return to 3) and, because Australia is the holder, if they win and thus tie the series 1-1, they keep the Cup, but if NZ wins, they take it back.

Yep, exciting stuff for me, completely boring, irrelevant, and inconsequential stuff for most, if not all, of you people reading this. Oh well.
