TT #3

8 February 2007

Thirteen Things to complain about today

  1. As you can see from the first post today, the Irish football team. What was that all about?
  2. The fact that we have no snow today.
  3. The fact that the weather forecast constantly lie to us.
  4. Cars who zoom past you, straight into puddles meaning you gotta jump really quickly to avoid the water. Especially when they almost hit the footpath in the process.
  5. I’m doing overdues today. And seeing as our LMS is so crap I’ve a lot of tedious editing of letters to do.
  6. Students and their mobile phones. Yes, this is an ongoing subject of a moan.
  7. It is only Thursday. It should be Friday, and the weekend.
  8. The Irish soccer team. I can’t complain enough about them.
  9. The fact that I’ve got my brand new and ultra shiny Rocky dvd, but won’t have time to watch it this evening.[1]
  10. Lost is back this Monday. It annoys me so.
  11. I’ll still watch it though.
  12. The Irish soccer team are really shite. But I quite like Stan. Just not as a gaffer
  13. There is more than a month until the next Bank Holiday.

    First off, I loved the footnote. It was inspired. As for the weather forecasters, well, I live in San Diego. Our weather forecasters are terribly overpaid. The weather is the same every day here. :-)

    I must say, I can't complain about my football team as I have in previous years. The New Orleans Saints made it to the NFC Championship game. I was totally jazzed about that. Next year promises to be even better. Best of luck with the Irish football team.

    By the way, $50M per year for David Beckham? Insane!

    Hey KT Cat, I read about your saints on sportsfilter, great story.

    As for Beckham, I wouldn't pay a tenner for him, but he does have huge marketing potential.

  3. Scouser says:

    Wow you are really pissed off with the Irish team aren't you. Well at least you scored unlike the hapless hopeless England team. Thanks for visiting <a>my T13

  4. Chris says:

    Your complaining about the Irish football team? You want to have Steve 'interesting' McClaren as your manager.

    Dear God, I gave up with England years ago really, but that guy just fills me with homicidal rage. Martin O'Neil? No! World Cup Winner Felipe Scolari? No! let the press hound him away. Lets have Stevie 'won nothing' Mac instead…… [seethes away into the distance]

  5. Ankur says:

    haha, great list, completely agree with you on number 2, still waiting for snow as well

    Happy TT!

  6. Chris says:

    Your captcha thing didn't show an image, so my comment disappeared :-(

    It wasn't that good anyway.

    Do you really need a captcha thingy on a WP blog? Akismet & Bad Behavior haven't missed a thing for me…

  7. Fence says:

    Hey Chris, you were stuck in the moderation queue, I had huge trouble with Akismet eating comments so I use SpamKarma, and sometimes it throws out a captcha thing. Now that you've been approved once you should be able to comment whenever you want.
    At this stage of Stan's career I'd actually welcome McClaren, scary as that sounds :)

    Scouser, you were playing Spain, in a friendly. We almost drew with San Marino! Ranked 198th in the world! I'm still in shock.

    Ankur, thanks for dropping by.

  8. Wacky Mommy says:

    Happy Thursday 13, one and all!

  9. Caryle says:

    The weather "people" here in Iowa, USA are terrible alarmists. "Snow, snow, there will be snow! Stock up on food!" etc. Then we'll get a slight dusting of a few flakes that are easily ignored. Oh well.

    Not too long till Friday!

    Thanks for visiting today. :)

  10. Ann says:

    I am right with you on number 7. Although now it is Friday – it should be after 5pm so I can be home and not in work. This has been a ridiculously long week.

  11. anne says:

    The weekend is almost here. Which means there's another Irish team you'll be seriously pissed off about come Monday… MwahaHAHA!

  12. Fence says:

    And happy TT to you too Wacky Mammy.

    Hey Caryle, Friday at last, I'm loving it.

    Ann, I wouldn't mind but it has actually been a short week for me. Was off on Monday.

    Anne, that's just not nice, any more of that and you'll be totally banned. But as I know that it'll be France whimpering home I'll let you off, just this once. Allez les verts!

  13. anne says:

    Yah. Sure. Whatever.

  14. I can't stand people on their mobile phones in public…especially restaurants. And I h ate to annoy you further, but I'm a huge Lost fan and I did my TT this week on questions I want answered. Great TT and happy Friday.

  15. Fence says:

    I've answered your questions, because Lost is addictive. Annoying, but addictive :) Thanks for dropping by.
