Sunday

Down to Reidski's yesterday to watch football in the day, and go out in the evening.

We didn't catch all of the first match (Holland v Serbia/Montenegro) for one reason or another but the Mexico v Iran match was fun. Not everyone will have heard of Keith Flett but he writes lots of letters to newspapers and recently wrote an article in the Morning Star entitled 'Anyone but England' and says that as an anti-imperialist* he will be supporting Iran. Aye, the same radical country that wouldn't let women watch football. So extra great to see Iran stuffed.

Later we went to see Camera Obscura who were very wonderful and were supported by a very young French man called Francois with a band who looked like the kids you went to school with who did Physics A level. One wore a tee shirt which said 'I really really like rock music. Me too lad! They shouted 'Woo!' a lot and were great fun.

Reidski and I have always to date had great times when we are together but for those of you sick to the back teeth of soppy posts about our relationship relax. Our first fall out is scheduled for Thursday night when I will be watching England play Trinidad and Tobago with him. Thanks to all who voted me in to that position...you bastards!!!!


* I hadn't realised he was an anti-imperialist - I just thought he was a wanker.

I didnt vote you to! I knew there would be fireworks otherwise!! Sounds like you two had another fabulous weekend.

Can I advise large cushions in between the tow of you for watching the match (pillows will work too). that way if things get tense there's nothing too damaging that can be thrown at the other person. Besides, its hard to keep cross in the middle of a cushion/pillow fight...

Don't worry Reidski will be cheering for England by the end of the tournament. Perhaps.

Since when was Reidski a Trinidad/Tobago fan??? Oh -- I get it!!!! It's spelled Eng-ur-land...

How bout recording some sound clips of you/Reidski during the match & posting them up? Would be great fun for the rest of us seeing as how video would probably be too much to ask for!

Thanks Moo, but I am reconciled to my fate:-)

Lisa - cushions, crash helmets, ear plugs, different rooms. Planning to get through this coming nightmare is well under way.

Arthur, I am right off democracy!

Martin, he has already been seen driving a car with an England sticker in the back...snigger!

Marc, no video as we always watch football in the nude.
I should delete that last remark really...ahh, but what the hell - I will leave you with that hideous thought:-)
