Where to Begin Once More?

And where did I really end in the first place, if at all?

I guess the biggest news is that I'm now seeing someone. That's the phrase I use even it does sound dated. Hey, retro and archaic runs through my veins. Anyway, she's awesome and I'm overly-lucky. This is where the cynics start to drool and gnash their teeth, blunted by a life of feasting on lambs. Well, all I can say is that I can be cynical too, but not in this instance...

Liverpool. Where to start again there? Flippin' heck... Worst start to the season in something like 57 years, then a 4 game winning streak including 2-0 against Chelsea (yes, the current leaders of the Premier League). Great! What could be better? Steven Gerrard scoring a hat-trick you say? No, he did that against Napoli, silly! So the last couple of games were Wigan Athletic and Stoke. I don't believe you should ever think a game is gonna be easy - then your effort will be all skewed while they could be going into the game dreaming about how a giant-slaying would taste really nice right about now - but after beating Chelsea they should've been a doddle. We drew 1-1 with Wigan and managed a 2-0 defeat at Stoke, with Lucas being sent off in the 'dying' minutes of the second half. Bloody wonderful... Come on lads, West Ham next. You CAN do it, so bloody well do it!

Next, badminton. Ups and downs lately really. The main problem I'm having is beating myself up about a couple of dropped points which genuinely fucks me up for the rest of the session (excuse my language there please - touchy subject). Let us hope I grow a brain sometime soon and not let it get to me. I don't care if I don't win all the time, after all I'm a sportsman and love a challenge, but I HATE it when I know I can be doing a lot better.

Then, finally, onto Martin Scorcese's 'The Departed.' Oh my sweet Lord what a fine film! It's one of those I keep hearing people say, "Oh I recorded it but I haven't got round to watching it," or, "It was on the other night but I missed it." WATCH THE DAMN FILM PEOPLE! Well, if you like crime films... Bloody marvelous!

Peace out, sorry about the long blog. Long blogs need to be shortened...
