England are down 4-2 with less than 13 minutes to go… Oh excuse me, 4-1. The goal-that-wasn’t, curse you FIFA and your stubborn obstinance of refusing to allow technology into your lives! Luddites!

Come on England! Go go go!

Dang it. Now who am I going to root for?┬áNo Aussies, no Kiwis, no Brits…

Of the remaining countries, I like German wines the best so I might have to start cheering for Germany…

Munday…

Not a fan of Monday – and the morning is especially unloved. Once I take over the world, I think I’ll extend the weekends to include Monday, so everyone gets a 3-day weekend.

Yesterday was Fathers’ Day. I went to the hospital to spend some time with my dad. He got through last week’s surgery ok, but he’s been in a lot of pain. It’s difficult to see him like that – I imagine it’s always hard for someone to see one of their parents all weakened and suffering. Looking ahead, hopefully he’ll be well enough to go home this week.

Also ahead, there’s like a week and a half till the end of the month and I’ve got a small mountain of work to get through by then. Between that and visits to the hospital et cetera, I’m already feeling all tapped out and exhausted.

In other mundane news, the world cup is into it’s 2nd week and England is acting like they’re homesick and want to get out of South Africa as quickly as possible. They just have to endure one more match on Wednesday then they can pack up and leave. Booooo. I don’t know who else to cheer for; I guess I’ll decide that on a match-by-match basis.

Right now I’m rooting for North Korea as they face Portugal… No particular reason other than I tend to root for the underdogs, and I like watching big upsets.

GO ENGLAND!!!
