World Cup of *Yawn*

It must be a false memory. Like that one where I’m still convinced that, when I was about 6, I used a toy phone to speak to my cousins in Dundee. I am still sure, to this day, that I did speak to them despite all evidence to the contrary. I’m nothing if not stubborn….

And then… nothing

All quiet on the house front unfortunately. But I have been able to crack on with some website work and as always it’s great when the client is accomodating, helpful and all round just a nice guy. Say hi to www.davidbelbin.com (then go buy one of his books!). I’m also adding some functionality for a…

Gosh the football is good, isn’t it. Way better than a World Cup, not as long winded as an entire season and, a few games aside (I’m looking at you France), bloody top quality entertainment. Apparently there are other things that can be watched on TV at the moment but, seriously, why would you? In…

Friday evening. Beer, pizza and the opening game of the World Cup. Saturday morning, a quick trip into Hamilton in the morning then off to Ashton Lane in the afternoon. Of the two beer gardens we chose the wrong one, completely and utterly chock-a-block. Still, it’s nice to have a cold beer (Budvar) or five…

World Cup Rules

Finally, it’s here! Now, before I start, I’ll point anyone not interested in this to head over to ScaryDuck’s place. The World Cup kicks off today and with that in mind I thought it would be good to make sure we are all aligned and in agreement with some basic rules during this busy period….

In a pattern that may well be repeated in the following few days, I’m not here. I’m outside. In the sun. Frying to a crisp… where DID we put those bottles of sun cream from last year? And why oh why oh why can I never ever ever mention sun cream without thinking about Sunscreem?…

Louise is home and annoyingly tanned, but I can put up with that. Her plane finally touched down in the wee small hours of this morning after a three hour delay and as it was a further hour or so before we got to sleep I decided to work at home today. Still, it’s good…

That World Cup question

Reading time: < 1 min

Our First Minister caused a bit of a stooshy recently by stating that he wouldn’t be supporting England in the World Cup. But why should he? He’s not English after all.. As for me, well it’s a tricky one, that’s for sure. Ach, who am I kidding, it’s very straightforward. ‘Mon the Soca Warriors!! Actually…

It’s all gone a bit ‘yeuch’ hasn’t it. What happened to the summer, was that it?! Probably. In saying that, I don’t mind this kind of weather so much. It’s not raining hard enough to soak you, more a steady constant dripping, and as it’s warm enough to not need a jumper it was actually…

Friday evening. A few beers with my mates, and a great night that was only spoiled by a pint of “flowery” beer (Deuchars I believe). Celeb spotted Donnie Munro in Babbity Bowsters (where I’ll be this coming weekend for the Glasgow blogmeet – 2pm people!), had mince and lorne sausage stovies in Cafe Source –…

Changed the dressings on my back yesterday and Louise took pictures of my wound. Still slightly open with two stitches, gross. Explains why it’s as sore as it was, I had no idea how deep they had to go… which reminds me, must take some painkillers before I go to bed. ~ So Scotland lost…

Had enough of the World Cup?

Reading time: < 1 min

Why not check out the other final being played on the same day as the World Cup Final. Might be quite good to see this broadcast round the world, it would, I presume, give hope to millions of amateur football players, showing that pride and passion are just as much a part of the beautiful…

To ITV Sport: A letter of complaint Whilst I am glad to see England go through I was very disappointed in your coverage of today’s games (12th June). I think it is ridiculous to only show 3-4 minutes of the other 3 games in total, and spend the rest of the program on the England…

I’m not sure what kind of people read this site, and what they make of it (yes yes, commenting coming soon I promise!) but if some of the search phrases are anything to go by – “dumbarton porn”, “does kirsty gallacher like black men”, “title of claudia schiffer porn movie”, “smart trouser fetish pics” –…
