Suggested Films To Watch On The Plane

So England are currently in the air on their merry way to Oz.

NWG thought it only friendly to suggest some films for them to watch whilst counting down the many hours it takes to fly to the other side of the world.

Bambi - shows the fight against adversity.

Dumbo - because elephants can fly.

Speed - illustrates the need to think clearly under pressure.

Anchorman - proves you don't need to be cool to be successful.

Lord of the Rings - because it's really long and will take up three hours of the flight and also shows that if you want something too much it will make you crazy.

Australia - just so, you know, you can be familiar with the surroundings.

Scream - just substitute the knife for a cricket ball and you can imagine what it will be like to see a scary Australian running at you at full speed with killer eyes.

A Quick Note

To all England players heading off down under tomorrow:

Don't lose your bloody passport.

Remember suncream.

Remember your kit.

Bring back the little urn.

That is all.

NWG Is Back

Everyone needs a break, even NWG. And she has a lot to share, well, kind of share whilst also making sure she can walk down the street without getting mobbed (she just wants her privacy. Paps are so intrusive....).

This week has been an exciting cricket week. Not necessarily in the news front, but the adventures NWG has been having.

First off. Guess who she managed to meet.

None other than Our Great Captain. Mr Strauss. And he was lovely. And quite small. And quite thin (worrying). But friendly.

And then there was also Alastair Cook. Taller than NWG expected, but also managed to crack a few jokes (NWG can't reveal the jokes, it would give too much away). But NWG is rather concerned as he was having a beer.

NWG will not accept the drinking of alcohol so soon to the Ashes. The Boys should be on a strict diet. No booze. No fun. Just cricket. Catching practice. Batting practice. Bowling practice. That's all that they should be doing.

NWG is not travelling all the way Down Under to watch Cook not be able to bat because of that one beer she saw him drinking. Unacceptable.

She also managed a quick chat with Aggers who invited her up to the commentary box during the Brisbane Test, which she will be taking him up on.

And yes, before you ask, NWG has started packing. She leaves in a few weeks and she can hardly wait.
