Too much Kate, too many dominos
How was your weekend? Mine was nice thanks. Some busy days and some quiet evenings save watching The Reader
on Saturday. I had no idea Kate Winslett showed us her bits as much, gave me trouble sleeping Saturday night that did.
I was out every night last week including Friday for dinner with some friends. Two nights last week I ended up in the only late night seedy club in Hamilton, full of drunken businessmen, spaced out locals and horny Portugese gardeners. Interesting place to say the least.
Work was horrid. Busy and stressful as opposed to unpleasant and nasty. The bulk of our business is done in the first six months, pre-hurricane season, and like an endless line of dominos falling, it is a fast and fastidious time with hopeful satisfaction at the end. The last domino falls on July 1st and we put our feet up.
I played tennis yesterday. Much better than last week where I think I suffered playing my son a couple of times the week before using low compression balls. It is true that you only improve in anything if you are competing against better people.
I know the season's ended but I couldn't tear myself away from the football. I watched Chelsea's win at The Emirates yesterday
. Arsenal looked so fragile didn't they? And I followed all the play-off games via the internet. We now know that either the Gills or Shrewsbury will join us in Division 3. Poor old Rochdale will face their 36th consecutive season in the fourth tier. I have rapidly gone off Gillingham over the years, thanks mostly to their dipstick of a chairman, Paul Scally and even if they do further add to the southern flavour of the division I backed Shrewsbury last week.
I am in two minds about Millwall
. I have mostly unpleasant memories of them and their rust bucket and the previous hell-hole but I find myself leaning to Dave's view
that our world will be a nicer place if we didn't play them next season. Elland Road should be interesting on Thursday. Scunny and the unlikable MK Dons play on Friday.
The two Championship games are nicely balanced. My bet Preston have to win at Bramall Lane tonight
however and Reading go to Turf Moor tomorrow. Meanwhile in the unlikely event that I can sneak out of work early I'd love to see the Newcastle v Boro
game tonight on the box and wouldn't it be nice to see West Brom stay up? Deano
I saw played a blinder for the Baggies on Saturday.
