[livejournal.com profile] worldoftights: David Beckham is all over the news. It's Becks this. Becks that.
Mother: Who's David Beckham?
[livejournal.com profile] worldoftights: The footballer. Y'know, married to Posh Spice?
Mother: Oh. A footballer. That's why I don't know who he is. I don't watch football.


I vote for the first time ever in no less than a federal election tomorrow. That's a bit weird for me. It seems like they somehow deliberately scheduled it for the year I turn 18, and then straight afterwards my HSC, leaving little to no time for politically disinterested me to do my research. If I have to do something, I have to do it thoroughly -- I have to do it right.

On a tangent, do you remember the games you used to played as a child? I'm not talking about "House" and cops and robbers, but things like "Red Rover (Cross Over)", "BP", "Eggs, Bacon, Chips or Cheese", "Fruit Salad", "Heads Down, Thumbs Up", "Good Morning Judge", "What's the Time, Mr. Wolf?" and "Sardines". You know those games that involved group organisation and plain out fun? I recall playing "Stuck in the Mud" in one of the most successful netball training sessions we had, as our club failed in it's duty of assigning us a coach -- we went on to actually win the following weekend game, a rarity for us (given the unfair circumstances).

I may not remember the rules to BP any longer (and I wonder how these games get passed down and remembered if we forget them once "outgrowing" them, which I disagree with as I'm up for a game of BP, Eggs, Bacon Chips or Cheese, or Sardines any day), but I do remember grassy shaded areas and the phases where my favourite colours switched from pink to blue to purple (to never favour pink again), my favourite car was a "Bluebird" only due to the fact it had a three person front seat, and I loved sitting up front, and my favourite tree was the "Bottle Tree" because of it's magnificent rounded shape, and the fact it stored water.

Before I wander too far down memory lane... do you remember these childhood games? Or any others besides the ones I've mentioned? Do you remember the rules to BP? Or shall I continue to wander back alone?

In closing, I have a confession to make in regards to my favourite werewolf, but that can wait until tomorrow or some other time, just to irk a particular person :P
