Chucking a Sickie

Hi everyone.

*cough splutter*

I'm off work tonight because I'm quite sick. It's that time of the year when everyone sporadically gets 'the bug' for a week then feel relieved that it's over, not realising that they've no doubt passed it on to hundreds of people. It's a vicious, germ-y cycle.

*a-sneeze*

So anyway. There was crazy weather across Melbourne yesterday, well into the evening, it was one of the worst days we've ever seen. Gale force winds and pounding rain, major bridges were closed and train lines cancelled, blackouts here there and everywhere... we had blackouts at work last night, which is never fun when you're in charge. I hope everyone got home ok and didn't end up getting too cold or wet. Apparently Camberwell station was a nightmare last night.

...aaaand this has nothing to do with gymnastics. At all. Um... *shuffles from foot to foot*
Uuuummm...

...Well, check out YouTube because more PacRim videos are up (can't wait for the NBC broadcast ones, except I'll probably be watching them on mute. Draw your own conclusions about who out of Joura or Bieger should have scored higher on bars) and have a squizz around the interweb for news from the European Championships which have kicked off. Some great photos of teams in training have surfaced. I have a soft spot for Gaelle Mys from Belgium. But I also give my votes to Great Britain, France, Russia and the Ukraine.

Tickets for Nationals/Olympic trials go onsale from Ticketek on the 8th, people. That's next week. To paraphrase a Comedy Festival show review in The Age this week: Sell your house, hock your grandmother, do whatever is necessary to get tickets!

As per usual nothing on Ticketek or Vodafone arena's websites as yet. Keep an eye out for the Victorian supporters T-shirts for Beijing with ALL Victorian girls names listed on the back
