Hands of blue

12 June 2006


In the past 30 minutes I have managed to spill water down my top and stick a wall staple-type-thing in my finger. I wonder what the third will be?

Still, can’t complain as the good weather has stayed longer than expected. Well sorta. It isn’t as warm as it has been, and there is a bit of a wind, but the sun is shining, and it hasn’t rained, so it’s all good.

I’m not going to mention the World Cup till the group stages are over, then I’ll give my impressions of the games I’ve watched, but isn’t it annoying that we aren’t in it?[1] In other sporting news, I did manage to get out of bed in time to listen to Ireland play New Zealand[2] but I think this Sat I’ll have to get up a little earlier and actually head to the pub to watch it. The radio is okay, but you really have no idea what is going on, especially when the commentator can’t talk fact enough to keep up with the action, or describes people passing the ball backwards, knocking on, and being turned over as losing the ball. I mean, get a different term.

Almost missed Bones last night, totally forgot it was on. Luckily Grey’s Anatomy started with a double episode last night and so I was just flicking around when the teaser of Bones ended and was able to watch most of it. Even luckier considering that for once this seems like an arcy episode. Does this mean we are near the end of the series?


  1. obviously we being Ireland, and all you furriners must be missing us too

    Oh, well done, now you've just jinxed the weather, haven't you; that'll be your third, to be sure… (I'm doing my best to counterjinx now, but you'll only have yourself to blame.)

    Nah, can't be regarded as a jinx if it is due to break. Can it? I mean two whole weeks without rain, I'm almost in shock.

    It was spittin as I came down from the station sans jacket. Or indeed jumper. But the seemingly-imminent cloudburst neva came.

    I missed Bones due to my video going CRAZY. So I will be relying on you to TWoP me on it. K?

  4. I assume the title is in reference to the two bad things that already happened to you today?

    Love Firefly. Unfortunately, I didn't get introduced to my addiction by my brother until after the bleepin' thing had already been cancelled by Fox. Thank the Lord that they at least came out with a movie after that.

    I haven't been keeping up–any word on a possible resurrection of the series?

    I've a match tonight so that has probably already jinxed the weather. You can all go ahead and blame me. We played our last match in the pouring rain and it was fun for about 10 minutes and then absolute misery.

    Have to say though, a little shower to soften up the ground would be most appreciated. Running in boots on the pitch right now is like running on concrete.

    Hi Talena. Yup, a reference to Firefly and the two bad things :) No real hope of either a sequel or a new series. Joss has two films in the works; Wonder Woman being one, and the other is his own idea, called Goners. though no one really knows what it is all about yet.

    Yes Ann, we could all do with a little shower, but I think it may be more likely to bucket down. If the weather people are right… hmm, maybe that means it'll be blue skies all day long then.
