19 Days.

Not sure how to feel about this line up. SBW was below average during the Championship tourny and has not earned that jersey to be honest. Colin Slade has been just average, but not competent. Mealamu .. did he even play a full game this season? Naholo got injured two months ago and had some Fijian VooDoo magic cure and now he's in the RWC squad. A holy crap moment if ever I saw one.

Where is Sopoaga and Dagg? This offends me some.
Where is Piutau? This does not offend me as much, but is still offensive.

To sum it up.
A solid forward pack and if the backs had Sopoaga and Dagg, they'd be equally solid.

My wish prediction.
Carter breaks his leg. Slade gets injured. Barrett does his knee and Sopoaga called, while white baiting, to convert the winner.

A good squad nonetheless, but I'm just a girl and what do I know about rugby.
Enough to know this is not a hot team, but it's close.

Hello Richie.

Super Moon, Te Mata and Ariel.

Last nights Super Moon. Te Mata Peak. Safe to say, Hubbalush loves her Ariel. She's my favorite big sister Mum. (Shame Tyler, Shai, Nessa and Rome) Goodnight Hawkes Bay. Earthquake: I felt it. I got my child up and ran outside onto my concrete porch where I thought it would be safest. The Seismologist on the news the next day said running outside is not a good idea in the event of an Earthquake. Now I know for next time. Hawkes Bay didn't feel the effects of it like Southland did .. and is continuing to do. Over 1000 aftershocks since it all began. Tyler is stuck on the South Island and finishing out their tour, much to my dismay. It's a disaster zone in parts down there and although she's on the skirts of the danger zones, you'd think it professional AND safe to cancel the tour and bring the troop home .. but no. Some stupid doesn't think so. Goodnight.

Kawe Mate.

Recently an Aunty of mine, who is staunch in her Maori culture, talked to me about the protocol of Kawe Mate. Kawe Mate is a custom during the maori process of death that involves taking the deceased memory back to where they were well known or considered home. It's a custom that is basically a gesture of love to family members who weren't able to attend the tangi. My family never practised it at all and I don't think it's necessary to start. I carry his memory in my heart, as does his Mom, that's all that matters. Happy Mothers Day!
