Bernie

Just so everyone knows, me and Oonagh are going to write our name at the top of each blog so that you know who wrote it. So, this is Bernie,

Its super Tuesday here and we've seen people with signs. I haven't actually seen any signs for the stupid republicans but there have been some Obama and Clinton signs. We got a picture with a guy and his sign, his name was Jeff. When we get to a better computer you can all see the wonderful photos. Its fun how excited everyone is today. I want an Obama hat that I've seen people wearing.

I spoke to a boxer yesterday, he came into our room to use our shower, not that he's in our dorm, just needed a shower. Said he had just had a private lesson with this really famous boxer. He said I would know who he is because he is fighting Ricky Hatton later this year. He spoke about boxing for quite a long time, I forgot to tell him that I had met Frank Bruno.

The guy in our room is from Brazil and he is called Gustav. I'm not really sure how you spell it, but I reckon thats a good guess. He got in at four in the morning last night and went and had a shower. After we realised he had been in there for two hours we got concerened and knocked on the door. He was fine, he had just fallen asleep in the bathtub. When he came out he said "Whats that word where you've been in water too long, ...your skin" and I said "wrinkley?" and he said, "Yeah man, I'm so winkley". He didnt say wrinkley he said winkley, me and Oonagh thought that was hilarious and so thats my main reason for blogging, but I thought I could tell you about the other people we have met.

There was another girl who was here for the first two nights, she was from the phillipenes. She's gone now but she was very nice and helpful, she found the winkley thing funny too.

I hope you are all good and having fun. The sky is very very blue here and it adds to the feeling that LA can't be a real city, its all too weird. Anyway, we are flying to Fiji tomorrow so the next blog, unless Oonagh does one, will be from there.

Loads of Love to everyone
Bernie xxxx


P.s Sophie from France and your husband that I presume is from LA, we just found your email address, it was merely misplaced.

soooooon you will find out who won super tuesday and tommorow will be super or lame. i reckon it will be clinton, but very very close. so close it makes the lame states who vote after important.

too bad you missed out on the new hot chip album. you know how all the chilled out songs on the other albums were, well, slightly lame? well not lame, but not outstanding. well the chilled out songs on the new album are almost better than the dancy ones. which are also amazing. brill album. reply to my email, its more interesting than this blabber about electro music

the boxer
Hey Bernie,

Just wondering who the boxer was who gave a lesson to the guy? Did you get his name? If its true that he's fighting Ricky Hatton then it's huge news! lol. You see, no one knows who Hatton is fighting yet. And I want to know!

Cheers,

Matt

Re: the boxer
Sorry I really can't remember, he kept on saying loads of names, about people that were training at this gym he went to, I looked for a list of boxers to see if I could look at them and remember the name but I can't. He definitely said he was fighting Ricky Hatton though, because thats the only name I really know in boxing (as in current boxers). If I remember though, or here it again you'll be the first to know.

Fiji is so HOT! xxx

Fiji
Hi Berni

I think I posted a reply to Oonagh's mum by mistake, anyway I will try again. Fiji sounds wonderful, do they do any helmet diving? I am now really jealous.

love Rachel

Take photo of both you
Please take a photo fo you both by:
1. Holding arm outstretched and pointing camera towards yourselfs
2. Asking a complete stranger to take it for you (don't let them steal the camera)
3. Getting Goosey to take it for you (although if he is not tall enough this might be difficult)
4. Using the timer button and putting the camera on something as tall as you so you get your faces in
5. Throwing the camera in the air as you press the button and hope it takes a picture in your general direction
6. Make your arms be longer
7. Go in a photobooth I expect there are lots right by your hut thing
