A Lot Of Catching Up To Do…

13 Aug


Yes, my lazy arse is finally back to posting. Sorry I’ve neglected you for the past few days. I got back from Philly late on Saturday night and spent almost all of Sunday fast asleep. I was worn out! Didn’t even turn on my computer.  Shout outs to Team Sweaty Shanks (DK, J-9, Shiggers & ginboonmiller) who accompanied me on the journey and awesome watishistas mygypsyspirit, conflictedinspain, Mandi & blackwidow who we got to meet up with. I really enjoyed hanging out with you ladies! I’m so sunburned that I glow in the dark and I could sleep for another week straight, but I had a wonderful time at the pre-season matches.

RM arrived in Spain yesterday (exceptions being the La Roja players that were called up). They didn’t waste any time hauling arse outta there after the game. Heck, Mesut posted a shot of them on the plane while we were enjoying our post-match pints. Continue reading

Bits & Bobs: New York, New York, Norma’s In For The Long Haul, The Baby Gets A Big Boy Callup, Philly Hotel

9 Aug

So, so tired after last night’s match. I’ll have pictures and whatnot to put up here, but not until after the weekend. I have an old friend visiting from out of town tonight and tomorrow, I’m off to Philly. See this picture? It was taken about 15 feet from where our seats were. Where were Shigs & I at the time?

Bits & Bobs: Shaky But Surviving, Goodbye Sin City, Play Ball, A Vulture And Some Duckies

22 Jul

Well, I’m hanging in there. Still pretty shaky but I’m going to attempt to go see Chelsea/PSG. I’m meeting up with forzasusan and PLL. If I make it that far, I’ll see if I can make it to Yankees Stadium. It’s all very touch and go. I feel like a new born foal. Very wobbly on the legs.  Thanks for all the get well wishes!

Mesut has finally left Sin City and it’s scantily clad ladies behind (one hopes they’re not stumbling along in stilettos and garters somewhere behind him) for the more natural and wholesome wonders of the Grand Canyon. I approve of this destination! Continue reading

Bits & Bobs: I Couldn’t Have Been More Wrong, Pirata Presser Translation And More

21 Jul

Remember how I was whining about a hangover earlier? I couldn’t have been more wrong. 3 glasses of sangria doesn’t give you a sore throat, sweats, chills, a fever, body aches and a stuffy nose. I’ve got some sort of bug. According to a friend, it’s been going around. Lucky me. I canceled my hair appointment and spent almost the entire day asleep except for occasional meals. Ugh. I have a Chelsea/PSG ticket for tomorrow, I need to at least get well enough to go to that. I guess I’m just going to stay in bed until the last possible second tomorrow.

Sami was definitely having more fun than I was today, posting this shot with two starfish. PUT ‘EM BACK, SAMI!  Continue reading
