I still can't find the tops worn in this icon I'm using and I've looked HERE (where clearly I got distracted for quite some time) and HERE and can't see it ~ seriously, if any of you know where to find it, please tell me. PLEASE.
Hope everyone is happy and OK :)
I'm glad the Cd's arrived OK aramley ..... enjoy the Rodney love :)
*I really need to work out how to put on a Mannschaft mood theme :)*
Also, I feel like crap. I seem to be feeling worse and worse each day with this cold/bug/whatever, instead of better. colej55 is staying with me till Thursday and I bet she wishes she were anywhere but here. I sure know I do. I tend to feel sorry for myself if I'm sick and this is no exception. I want to just crawl into bed and hide under the covers for the next few days ... but I can't. Meh.
I did, however, have a dream with Torsten in it last night, but that's unfortunately all I can remember .... a vague memory of Torsten. If footie dreams are a side-effect of this bug, I hope I never get better ~ got to find the positive somewhere, right? :)
First time was in the tunnel when they were all waiting to come out. Torsten (as captain) was at the front of the Werder players, but conspicuously kept looking over his shoulder at the row of Chelsea players next to him, then looking forward again. Then looking back again for a few seconds then forward. After doing this a few times he obviously spotted his target because he turned and walked away from the front of his team and back towards the Chelsea players, whilst at the same time someone walked out of the middle of the Chelsea line ~ Torsten and Micha greeted each other happily then went back to where they should be ..... but Torsten still kept looking over his shoulder at Micha, right up until they walked out onto the pitch!
Second time was when Micha was injured in the 2nd half. As he sat on the ground and was being treated, all you could see was a Werder player stood next to him the whole time ;) Couldn't see any Chelsea players around, but maybe that was just the camera angle ~ or maybe they just realised he was in safe hands ;) Torsten then bent down and ruffled his hair a bit before Micha was took off the pitch. That was so damn sweet :)
Yep, worth every penny :)
Though I really must either resist the urge to pay for and watch every Werder Bremen game, or find someone with Sky Sports who will let me watch them!
EDIT: Then Deb phoned .... she saw the 200th episode of SG1 for the first time tonight so we both spent a few minutes squeeing over our evenings then laughing at ourselves! :D
Plus today I'm quite cross about something but am having trouble not feeling guilty about being cross. Did I mention that guilt is my default position? Along with paranoia? And an over-active imagination :)
Oh, and I've changed my default icon for the day. Because I can't watch the match tonight. And no, I'm not over it yet :(
*returns to sitting in a corner with her cake*
Watched the Man Utd vs. Celtic match tonight and the only goal was scored by a Celtic player called Nakamura. See the subtle connection there? ;) Then I switched over at the end and managed to catch a short post-match interview with Jens Lehmann :)
A POSTCARD FROM TORSTEN (& Micha)!!!!!
Yes I laughed my ass off and yes that's a stupid dorky grin plastered on my face :) Ma'hal I love you to bits right now *huge hugs*. I'll be taking this to work tomorrow to help me remember to smile all day ~ though I think it'll be a while before I actually stop grinning :)
*Goes off to read her postcard .... again*
I wanted to randomly use a footie icon and just mention that I'm really pissed off that ITV is showing both the Man Utd and the Arsenal UEFA Champions league matches on Tuesday, and they are NOT showing the Chelsea vs Werder Bremen match on Wednesday. The one I desperately wanted to see. Ballack vs Frings. Bloody ITV.
Today was a better day, not least because I spent a large part of the afternoon
flirting with chatting to 'Radek' (as _gater_ and I call him) and he really made me laugh a lot, and that was good ~ bless him :)
I'm thinking about not bothering to do some of the things I had to get done before colej55 arrived ~ I'm sure she would rather I wasn't completely exhausted the whole time she was here!
And had a slight moment of panic today when I realised I've only bought 4 Christmas presents so far .... and two of them are for the same person.

Had a pretty messed up few days which have left me feeling meh, so apologies to those I owe emails and stuff to. Feel free to throw happy thoughts my way. Hopefully a few will smack me :)
One thing which did make me smile this morning (which really shouldn't have) is a printout on my desk headed "Werder shocked by Dortmund" (obviously left by Mark, the guy who invited me to the football on Saturday) ~ silly boy seems to have forgotten that as I do the daily cover, it's me who decides what everyone does every day ... guess he's going to be doing stuff he hates for the next .... week?
I had an awful, awful time at the GP surgery this morning. Not that there's anything seriously wrong with me or anything, it's just it was a horrible, emotional experience that left me all girly and stupid. So I came back and sat in my office and bawled for a bit. I now have a little pile of various kinds of chocolate and cups of coffee next to my keyboard left by my lovely friends who can clearly tell I'm not having a great day. So I'm going to work my way through it all, because it would be rude not to, then try and get through today.
Then I just got the lecture from Ella about "who comes first". She perseveres until I say me. Which I never do first time, though I should've learnt by now that she doesn't give up easily.
One thing just made me smile though, and this will make my geeky elf partner roll her eyes ...... one of the blokes here just asked me if I want to go watch our local footie team play tomorrow as he's going with his brother. I used to work at this footie club and used to go watch them play regularly which I loved, and what could be better on a Saturday afternoon? But The Boy won't want to go so I can't. But the thought made me smile. Hell, it made me giggle :)
13 footie userpics and geeky elf partner is finally realising she may be wasting her breath :)
And huge thanks to Ma'hal for your help with the DVD ~ Cadburys and Walkers on their way, I promise :)
I saw on a vid comm today that someone had made some slash vids for Robin Hood, the new show on BBC, and that really made me laugh ~ I'm so glad it's not just me who things it's slashy, cheesy nonsense ~ well, me and mir8lle ;)
My geeky elf partner is now back from her mini-break and will no doubt renew her attempts to convince me that my new-found obsession for the German boyharem is wrong. She's wasting her breath :)
Hugs Ma'hal because for some reason your post made me feel sad when I read it .... not because of what you said though, maybe it was the way you said it. Anyway, *hugs*
Ella always gets me cool birthday presents. Like she will get me something amazing that I ask for which I know no-one else will get, or just something really cool that no-one else would think of ~ last year she got me a meteor rock and it was such a cool present to get! So as we were watching this World Cup montage at the TV shop and I was
Tonight The Boy and I are going to the fireworks show! I'm so excited, I ♥ fireworks! :D Hopefully I'll see dizzyblonde3 there, and Ella is hoping to come too, though she's been at a beer festival all day so she's not sure if she will make it back
And although I mock the walking hairdo mercilessly, which he thoroughly deserves, I'm so damn jealous of my geeky elf partner who today got to
Went to Castlepoint with The Boy this morning (cake in Nero's as usual!) and bought some books from Waterstone's: Nick Hornby "A Long Way Down", Anita Shreve "A Wedding In December" and Dorothy Koomson "My Best Friends Girl" ~ hopefully I will get to start one of them later :)
You know, apart from maybe the old guy who lives on the 2nd floor but no-one ever sees, I'm the only English person living in this building ~ everyone else is Portugese, so I guess at 4pm this afternoon me and The Boy will be a little drowned out! However, one of the cars parked downstairs has both an English and a Portuguese flag flying, so I guess they'll be a little conflicted this afternoon!
