    Thats a big cuddly fluffy bunny my friend. Just like me.

    does not gel with this:

    @MajorRage said in Plans for Saturday:

    Up around 6, smash some water & a banana. 90 minutes run, back around 45 mins to kick off. Time make some coffee, pancakes for kids and poached eggs on avocado and tomato toast, finished off with fresh chili, basil.

    Watch England vs Australia with 2 of my brother in laws, drink some water and cheer on ... well, nobody actually.

    Finish game, slice up some fresh fruit for me and the kids.

    😂

    All about just being a fluffy bunny, with none of the rest.

    Then they can go and punch and irishman.

    I'll do it.

    punch, not skin and eat one.

    Ok, if we lose you can eat one.

    I'll have potatoes too I think, and a nice green lampshade.

    Am I the only one who read “potatoes” in an Irish accent in my head?

    Dunno about you fluffybunnies but I'm going on my son's school excursion to the Reef.



  • But the teams will be named at some point, so there will be a bit of bickering about that

    I think we need another story thread...

    In Mexico City for this one... Gonna have the Mrs ring around all the Irish bars in town to find one that’s showing it.

    Reading a bunch of trip adviser reviews I reckon this one sounds like a good option.

    “It was a good bar until I went to the bathroom and was offered cocaine. Management didn’t seem too concerned about it”

    How many tripadvisor stars did that reviewer give it?



  • @JK said in Plans for Saturday:

    Yeah well pretty much a standard spring saturday so...

    • net session with the lad in the morning
    • home for a coffee and finish off the days form before loading a handful of long winded multi bets
    • arvo at home pretending to do odd jobs around the house, lawns etc while really knocking back beers and punting on anything with 4 legs and a long nose running around caulfield or randwick and if I'm struggling that morphetville or eagle farm might get some attention too.
    • 530/6pm usually end with a couple of boys from next door turning up to get their kids home for dinner but end up having a beer or three while I spout about the sport of kings and how good spring racing is. Make them stay for the last leg of a multi.
    • potentially angry bbq around 630pm following my lack of belief of a redzel three-peat
    • settle in to a bit of england vs aus between blowing the last of my cash on the wizard of the west at ascot
    • AB's game - probably on the couch with me and my nerves being comforted by abusive texts from aus mates and/or UK family (depending on outcome of previous game)

    Yeah same old saturday really

    Wife has confirmed she's actually out all day saturday and not in until late that evening so no longer any need to do aforementioned odd jobs around home etc. There is a need though for another box of beers

    I've over stocked. Running out would be a disaster



  • @mariner4life said in Plans for Saturday:

    I've over stocked.

    No such thing. You could have a typhoon come through, some other natural disaster, anything could happen. I was relieved to hear that @gt12 had adequately prepared and made it through Hagibis with a surplus.

    As for Saturday -imagine if we were to lose, and there was no alcohol?
    Or even if we win actually.
    Yep disaster.

    My old lady actually stocked up hard on wine ahead of Y2K. She likes her wine anyway so I think there would usually be at least 5 or 6 cases in the house on any given day but I recall in late 1999 that pretty much half the garage was taken up by her reserves.



  • @mariner4life Oh and take the necessary precautions as well. Like have some in one fridge , some in another, some in the back up fridge, some in the reserve backup fridge. Always wise to have some in a cellar, safe room, or nuclear shelter (preferably all of them).

    Oh, and some that the wife can't find.

    My kinda girl. Nothing wrong with doomsday preppers, and if the Paddies were to win, things aren't going to be good around here. All forms of sedation should be readily available.



  • I maintain enough alcohol across beer, wine and spirits to get roughly 30 pax drunk on any occasion., just in case. You never know when the lads are going to drop over thirsty.

    I may well get through half my supplies on my own if we lose on Saturday night.



  • I remember drinking an awful lot of JD's and coke in the NZ-Aus semi in 2011, and then barely touching a drop in the final!



  • @taniwharugby said in Plans for Saturday:

    I was the same during the final, was too nervous to even pick up a bottle during the match. Warmed up well and made up for it afterwards though.



  • Last 2 weeks of uni before I become an actual adult and work for the rest of my life. Saturday consists of a bunch of uni shit then a coupley quiet beers during the games then more uni shit straight afterwards.



  • @Yeetyaah said in Plans for Saturday:

    I become an actual adult

    You're a bit different around here.



  • @Snowy Haha more meaning I'm working full time.



  • Iv'e been warned by Mrs JC that if I'm going to get all tense and shouty she won't stay up to watch the game with me. Sad face. Also, so I don't disrupt her beauty sleep I'm expected to sleep in the spare room. So just me and a bottle of red then. I'm thinking a bottle of Tom that I've been saving. Or I've got some 2015 Coleraine, which even sounds Irish.



  • @JC beautiful



  • @Snowy I have a main fridge. A 2nd fridge. A beer fridge on the patio.

    And a wine fridge.

    I think I'm good



  • Miss TA has her 12th Birthday party at the local Strike Bowling 6PM. 🤔

    So my Saturday evening from there through to 9-9:30PM will be death stares at the male classmates she has invited along, while looking at my phone occasionally and saying "fuck it" or "fuck yes".

    I should wander in just in time to see Ireland's response to the racist marketing agenda haka, and see how long they can hang with the dirty cheating filth All Blacks.



  • Sleep in, as will be in hotel bed in another city..get up, have a couple of panadol as the head likely to be splitting. Find a local cafe to replace caffeine. Find a pub by lunch to take the edge off.

    Make an excuse as to why I have to go to the TAB before being dragged to a friends wedding by my wife. Try watch a few races beforehand

    No one at the wedding is even likely to have an interest unless I tell them, the typhoon means they need to get their 4wd's out to get there, or fishing has just got a whole lot more exciting.

    Will have to drown my sorrows listening to Cold Chisel and only drinking option probably VB, or some sweet sparkling.. I feel like a bogan already... On the off chance I get back to civilisation in time, head to the comfort of the hotel room, crack a bottle of red and watch the feed on the laptop.

    ...I havent asked the wife, what she is doing yet lol



  • I was going to do a quiet one at home but I happened to be at a Irish bar midweek which was all decked out for the WC so I've now booked a table there. Risky move for sure if results don't go my way (or even if they do...), I'll be the only kiwi rest of the group being an international assortment of friends, not really rugby fans but coming along for a gander anyway.



  • My plans are head off at 1:30 to get to McLean Park by 2pm for the Tui's semi-final, before the 4:30 Magpies demolition of Otago.

    While I am out, the parents in law and sister in law turn up from Auckland. I hit the local chippie on the way back to grab dinner, then settle down to watch the world cup games with some beers and snacks.

    Did I mention that the inlaws are Irish, Hmmmm...



  • @mariner4life

    Amateurs

    I have fridge and beer fridge, wine fridge, 2,000 bottle wine cellar, (sadly down to

    did you have a heart attack before finishing?

    I have 2x fridges, but I have no wine fridge and my cellar only holds about 200 bottles - I feel so ashamed, must remedy this somehow!!!



  • @Stockcar86 A little bit worse than your own family (not yours of course) being Irish I suppose!!!!



  • @taniwharugby @voodoo

    I downsized because I realised I didn't have enough time left to drink all the wine I had accumulated and after pouring several cases of very expensive wine down the sink decided to sell a lot off before it became totally unpalatable.

    I live alone so I don't crack open a bottle to drink on my own - the whole wine exercise has been a bit of a folly TBH



  • I've kegged my latest beer so have two beers on tap in the beer fridge for Saturday night. Can't wait.



  • @dogmeat I wish I had your discipline - I drink mine too fast to accumulate much more than I can store.



  • @nzzp said in Plans for Saturday:

    was thinking about this before. I have achieved a bit of stuff in my life (y'know, getting married, kids, house, professional, etc), but the day I had beer on tap in my house was when I finally felt like I'd arrived.

    Life is awesome sometimes.



  • @nzzp Is it chilled?



  • @Snowy said in Plans for Saturday:

    @nzzp Is it chilled?

    WTF sort of question is that Snowy?



  • @Snowy said in Plans for Saturday:

    nah, I just have a warm keg of cats piss sitting in the lounge next to a framed picture of a Manly jersey.

    FFS, man. No crimes against humanity beer here
