Through the tunnel

0118: Full tennis day! 11am-11pm. Yes, I’m hardcore like that! Had tickets for that night’s match at RLA but didn’t wanna go see Hewitt battle it out against Nalbandian so managed to sell those ticks off at the gate that morning (at cost price yo – I just wanted them gone!). In turn, scored ground passes at $29 a pop, massive stalkage in progress ie. Stosur, Kirilenko, Roddick, Gasquet, Henin, Clijsters, Djokovic and……. FEDERER. THAT’S RIGHT. FEDERER BABY! There was a MASSIVE crowd of people watching him practice on court, as I tried to squeeze my way through the front. I’m about 3-4 people away from the front of the fence, and little by little, everyone started to move out… schwing~ I made sure I got my foot in to claim their spot! And whatdoyaknow?! Maybe 30 minutes of paparazzi snapping of McFed, I got through to the front of the fence! After Federers practice session, he. came. directly. AT. ME. ….. ME!!!!! He came up to me (out of everyone else – mwahahaha) and took MY sharpie (that I specifically bought for the AO) and signed my giant tennis ball and used it to sign everyone elses things! HE CAME TO ME FIRST… AND USED MY SHARPIE. HEH! Fangirling in progress… holy crap balls. I made damn well sure that I got that sharpie back! “Security! SECURITY! SECURITY! That’s my sharpie, can I get that back when he’s done!! I WANT THAT PEN!” Security guards pretended to throw my sharpie away – HEH – but gave it back. Mwahaha, so now I have Fed’s autograph on my jumbo tennis ball AND a sharpie with all his germs all over it. LOVE LOVE LOVE. Fed, you are amazing, a legend… GOAT. <3 <3

0119: Home time… NOOOOOOOOOOOOO! 😦 woke up early, loitered the city, grabbed myself a cuppa (tea), a light breakfast at pie face (yum!) before heading back to the hotel to check out. Friend and I did some more loitering before having another bite (for me) at Passionflower. My passionflower cravings have been satisfied (although, I much prefer the passionflower in Syd). Mmmmm… black sesame ice cream!! <3 My cousin later picked us up at the hotel, we went to grab another bite at Brunelli (haha piggy me) before getting dropped off at the airport. Le sigh. Security deflated my jumbo ball.. BOOO. Bid my farewells and back home I went to crazy ass 36 degree weather. Melted. 😦
