Hmmm

New Zealand lost to England in the cricket. What does that say about us?

I guess it says that NZ are really bad at cricket!Can't be good at every ball game I suppose. Cricket and football are not the Kiwi strong sports.

B.B.

Whereas England off course are excellent at tiddly winks.

Really? I didn't know that. But one couldn't really classify tiddly winks as a ball sport, could one?

Ju's little sister's aunt prefers a 'leg bye' any day! xoxoxo

Ju's little sister said...

Auntie!
That's naughty!

Maalie said...

No, not naughty, just runcible ;-)

Ju's little sister said...

yeah, and the joke expands I'm sure when you learn Ju's Little Sister's Auntie's married name is Bye...

JLS: Do you ever dream you are flying? I often do! I always start by lying face down in some grassy field with my arms out-stretched and even the faintest draught is enough to get me airborne. I even turn my wrists to use my hands like aerilons to steer! When I wake up, it is so vivid I believe I have really done it. And sometimes when I'm dreaming it, I dream "this time it's real, I'm not dreaming it this time! Is that weired?

Maalie, maybe you were a bird in a past life - hence your infatuation with birds.......
Incidentally, what does "runcible" mean ? I couldn't find a satisfactory explanation in my two dictionaries.

Maalie said...

Ju's Little Sister's Mum, no you won't find it in the dictionary, it's defined axiomatically (as is a point in geometry). J's.L.S. can explain that, I'm sure.

simon said...

umm.. yes and you lost to us because you cannot catch (or so it seems)

If memory serves me.... that is the ONLY match England won whilst being here.

TCA NZ are of course the worlds best rugby team.. and I support them when I do not have to support Aus....

TCA said...

Yes indeed. Having lived in NZ for the best part of 10 months now I can most definitely say that rugby is in the blood of New Zealanders, they live and breath the sport. They are bred like ork's to play the game. Sadly England have no chance at this venture.

It makes life difficult for those few of us who have no interest in living and breathing rugby. Give me hockey any day.

Ju's little sister said...

Maalie, Mum. I had to look up axiomatically, which is pertaining to an axiom, obvious, self-evident.
I'm not sure the meaning of runcible is self-evident. I'm only guessing based on comments made using the word that perhaps it means something along the lines of incorrigible, but in a more light hearted way.

Maalie said...

J'sLS: obvious, self-evident.
I'm not sure the meaning of runcible is self-evident


Yes, sort of self-evident from repeated contextual usage! When Tortoiseshell threw a spoon full of baby-purée over the floor when he was tiny, I said something like "You naughty boy". To which he replied: "No, not naughty, just runcible"!
How axiomatic is that!

Ju's little sister said...

neeehhhhh....
I'm not so sure

simon said...

welll.... the English lost yet again whilst flintoff was captain.. all out for about 120...

I have to say it was a sad match to watch...

Hey Ju's LS.. I was just being runcible on Mallies blog re convicts and your PM!

lorenzothellama said...

Did tca that New Zealanders have 'legs like auks'?

simon said...

well... frankly the poms played tonight like a bunch of failures.... all out for 110

we knocked the score off... 1 for....

So there is no doubt its going to be NZ v AUS....

AND the NZ's will give us a run for our money.....( as usual)

TCA said...

England were bl**dy awful, a complete disaster again. I can't really say anymore....
