Last night I went out with some friends from the hospital. We went to Chong Co Thai in Kingston. I enjoyed a lamb shank massaman curry and some coconut rice. I woke up feeling a little nauseated, tired and experiencing blurred vision. Not a good way to begin a weekend of footy finals.
Tonight my two favourite teams in the National Rugby League are playing in the first round of the footy finals series. The Brisbane Broncos are playing the North Queensland Cowboys. I’m hoping the Broncos defeat the Cowboys. Both teams get another chance and ultimately I’d love if they both met again in the grand final. Can you imagine a Broncos Cowboys grand final at Lang Park? Of course the NRL wouldn’t allow it. It’s as likely as letting the football star rather than the crappy entertainment Channel Nine insists on torturing us with. Why do we need Jimmy Barnes and Cold Chisel screaming at us? I’d prefer a school choir to sing the national anthem and then kick off of the game. Worse still Channel Nine will insist on having Phil Gould in the commentary box. The focus should be the footy not the entertainment all in the name of television ratings. So much time is wasted when all the fans and viewers want is to watch the footy.
So let’s get back to some food and photography.
I’m thrilled that Jolene Blalock favourited and retweeted a tweet of mine. Jolene played T’Pol on Star Trek Enterprise. T’Pol was one of my favourite characters on Enterprise. She really developed as a character throughout the four short seasons. I wish there had been another season of Enterprise.
As I left the hospital yesterday I saw this sign on a window. I shared it on Instagram and Facebook and pondered whether this could be a new ice cream store. I’m expecting it will be used to store semen, embryos and for tissue banking.
I never thought of kangaroo being a Thai protein.
So it was a great game tonight. The best team won. The Broncos defeated the Cowboys.
