Canada's ace by the way

Some of you live in Canada and are therefore aware of this fact. The rest of you: Seriously, it's really good.

It's big and roomy, they've got loads of good beer now and there are even parts that are hot and sunny. They don't tell you about those bits.

Canadians are great too. For some reason they're not all surly and stupid like normal people are. They'll delight in accurately guessing where you're from as well - based on the Australian accent that you've apparently developed of late.

The only downside as far as we can see, is that there's no cricket. We know that you can get all sorts of stuff on the internet, but that's not enough. You, like us, need to live in a proper cricket culture. So we've got a solution.

We'll all move to Canada and set up our own community.

Wait. Don't run away. Think about it at least. There's bags of room in Canada. We can probably even find a warm bit with no-one in. We'll buy up the whole valley and create a new town. A glorious place where the sun beats down on white-clad autistic-types who deal in a strange currency of runs and wickets.

Now: Can anyone do anything - anything at all - remotely useful. It's just that obviously we can't and we kind of need someone to build all the houses and find a place to keep the electricity and work out how to make water and stuff like that.

Oh great, they're back... (that was sarcasm by the way).

Re:Canadians. Don't you find them a bit, well, wholesome? Even the ones that drink loads and do other nefarious things seem to have a wholesome edge.

On another note, I was in Paris recently for "work" and managed to find a bar that was showing the England/India game (it was an english theme place populated almost exclusively by well heeled parisians). True story.

The rough 'n' ready cowboy types aren't wholesome. They like eating jerky and wrestling steers.

Besides, in our town we'll all be from Cricket Land.

you can't just walk back in like nothings happened. How do we know you weren't cricket blogging in Canada?

Were you?

Was it good?

Was it better than blogging here?

Where did you blog?

How many times?

Was it the best blogging you ever had?

Don't touch me. Its too soon.

It meant nothing.

We just went through the motions.

'So-and-so scored some runs. Someone else got some wickets.'

There was no love. It was purely fulfilling a need.

Functional. Distant. Cold.

Thats pretty good. I feel a bit better.

On the very slim chance that another woman ever lets you within 100 yards without shouting for the police, and you end up 'together.' thats what you shouold tell Mrs King Cricket.

Although I doubt she'll be that bothered. What with knowing the size of your bat and yer inability to keep the stumps in place for more than a few seconds with the merest provocation.

does that work? can't be bothered thinking of a better innuendo, someone help me out.
