Here is our date (what you missed)

I was online a long time before the interview (to get used to the guys' voices)
There were some good songs ; and even a song-game (my favorite was Gary's, Madonna -I have to tell).
Twice heard the news and the weather news (sending some love to the people in the North who suffered from a flood and to whom Mrs Clark said they'll have to find another house... FREE HUG...)

Then the interview started at 7.47am (NZ time) on MoreFM Canterbury.
It was on the phone (so not really easy for me to get everything -but Baby Fan was there to help me...thank you Jo! By the way : we also wanted the balloons but apparently no-one heard us... I am really sad about this!)
Richie is happy to be home -even if it's chilly (they said 2°C on the weather news!)
He stayed at home only one night this week (I had one night in 6 weeks -but trust Jo on this one!)
Do you ever take anything with you on tour? Pillow? No doesn't bother anymore.

The guys (Si & Gary) had a mail from Amy, 13, who said that Richie was a gentleman, very chivalrous, because he'd marry her! (nice try, Amy, really!)

Do you get many marriage proposals? -too many!

(the question) Are you single?
(the answer) Yeah....umm...yeah
We'll take it as a no then!

(I literally copied here Jo's notes -again : thank you, Baby Fan!)
"Do you feel responsible for everyone? No not really. There’s a wee bit extra. If you look at it as burden you don’t do job right. The best way to do it is to enjoy the challenge.

If one of the guys has too many late nights do you ever take them aside? Umm, we generally try as a team. There’s nothing more powerful than players helping each other. If a guy gets a bit out of line you can talk to them but there‘s not too many times you need to do that.

Do friends ever say we’re not listening to you, you’re ‘full of yourself’? Not really, but I know what you mean. There’s a feeling you get when you have to talk to a mate. You think well what do they think of me because of it? If I was in the wrong I’d expect one of those guys to tell me. That’s the sort of environment we‘ve built and you just get on with it.

Corey Flynn told us you drove a ball into a persons house when you played golf recently? *laughing* Yeah, I just sort of pulled my hat down and carried on…
" (bad boy!!!)

Then there was a joke about 'Richie McCaw-ism' that I didn't get (so if you know what it means, just tell me!)
Tomorrow, Gary will attend the match with his wife and Richie has to wave at them (we'll have a look at that, Gary!)
It's gonna be a tough match (Richie said) after what S-Af did in Australie (who said they had sent the B*team???)
***** End of the interview at 7.53am

Thanks a lot to Izzy the local spy for telling us about this interview ; and to Jo the Baby Fan whose notes were just great!
To the others : so sad you missed it (but we'll soon schedule another date, don't worry!)

Enjoy your weekend everyone,
Saturday is French national day so I don't think I'll be online to comment on the match,
See you on Sunday then,


ps : the pics were from last year's interview by Sy at Richie's place

The only time Richie McCaw was wrong was when he thought he had made a mistake. "

Microsurgery: Penile revascularisation and venous ligation are microsurgical procedures
similar in technical complexity to a heart by-pass operation although they clearly do not carry anywhere
near the same risk to the life of the patient. Aging
during the first phase of life is found to be a generic phase that converts the small baby to a young boy and then to fertile adult.
Older people suffer more from sexual dysfunction compared to younger people.

Hey would you mind sharing which blog platform you're working with? I'm going to
start my own blog soon but I'm having a tough time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something completely unique.
P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

When you’re ready to unwind after a long day, there’s nothing as relaxing as lying back and soaking in the tub. When you’re ready to fill up the tub, you’ll want it done properly and in style. That’s why the tub isn’t a tub until you’ve considered what type of bathtub tap to add.

When shopping for a new bathtub tap (also sometimes referred to as Roman tub fillers), keep in mind that they’re typically offered in the lighter finishes (like chrome and nickel tones), but there are a few exceptions. Also, you probably won’t need to worry too much about spout reach if your tub can already accommodate a bathtub tap. Also, many models include a hand shower as an added convenience.
