Woohoo!

    Well, the world cup finals are under way – England got a win in the first game but personally I’m not happy – Eriksson made some substitutions that were just WRONG – in football you just can’t sit back and defend a 1-0 advantage. The ref was shit too – I’m not even going to start on THAT one… Work’s been good this week – down to Bournemouth again for 2 days – weather was awesome (for once) and I FINALLY got to see the beach (the hotel we stay in is only 10 minutes from the seafront and I’d […]

    Just like Rooney

    Well, it’s been an interesting week to say the least… I got a mention in the LangaList (see link on the left) which resulted in my site getting a huge 2000 or so hits in 2 or 3 days. Also – on a football note (I just know that y’all LOVE to hear me ranting on about the injustices of football on my beloved Spurs…it seems that arsenal (hereinafter referred to as scum of the earth) might be kicked out of Europe for some financial irregularity (woohoo!) I was discussing this with a mate yesterday and he actually pointed out […]

    Cellphones

    Been a strange one today – I’m due my mobile phone upgrade so I rang them asking for the Samsung D600 (same phone I already have – but I’ve got a buyer lined up for my old one). They told me it would cost £120 for that particular model. I argued a bit about if I was a new customer I’d get it for free – they responded with “Well, that would be a new contract.” I countered with “Well, THIS would be me having a new 12 month contract.” O2 then offered a £60 discount. I said that paying […]

    World Cup

    Well, it’s all about football now – and more specifically – the World Cup…Eriksson has named his squad (see here). I must admit, I’m very happy to see Spurs players in the squad, but I expected to see Defoe in there too – admittedly he IS on standby (and most likely Rooney won’t be going) – but I never would have picked Crouch over Defoe. Looking at the midfield though, it makes you feel confident – so much strength and speed in there – and some goalscorers there too. I can’t wait…

    Bollocks…

    Well fuck…last day and Spurs blew it. That’s all I have to say about it – I’m fucking gutted. I watched ‘V For Vendetta’ tonight – awesome film, I imagine it would lose something for the non-english watchers (that’s citizens of England, not english speaking). I have to confess that it did make me shed one or two tears…mind you, so did ‘Independance Day’ – I’m a sucker for films…so gullible I’ll believe anything. Anyway – 5 weeks until the world cup – come on England! I’m tempted to go have a bet…

    football, football, football…

    Well, the final day of the Premiership is tomorrow – Spurs are still in 4th placewith a 1 point advantage over Arsenal – if we win at West Ham, we get 4th place and a Champion’s League slot for next season. Hard to believe there’s no football after tomorrow…until June 9th of course – World Cup 2006 kicks off then. England’s first game on the 10th SHOULD be simple enough – but we have been known to make some bad mistakes in the past… On a different note, I did a bit of shopping today, and walking into town (in […]

    Champion’s League

    Well, been a while since I added anything here, but not a great deal has happened lately – Spurs need to win their last game against West Ham to finish in fourth place in the Premiership which would qualify them for Champion’s League next season so long as Arsenal fail to beat Barcelona in the final…COME ON YOU BARCA! I see in my last post that I was expecting to be in Bournemouth to do the onsite testing down there – well, that’s not happened yet, it’ll probably be next week now by the time I get in touch with […]

    Holiday weekends

    Don’t you just love ’em? Been a long week considering it was only a 4 day one – went to Manchester (again) on Tuesday to do some onsite testing and finally got home about 10.30pm Wednesday. Next week we’re back down to Bournemouth for testing there (is it REALLY a year since we were last there?). I like Bournemouth International Airport – ther FR Aviation canteen is awesome. Kind of amusing too – you have to cross the taxiway to get to it so high visibility vests (or ‘dinner jackets’ as I have renamed them) must be worn and rather […]
