The Week So Far…

26 Jul

I make a whole big statement about starting to post again and then promptly get felled by an epic bronchial infection that has had me flat on my ass all week. Typical.  Anyhow, I’m slowly starting to come out of it now so I’m going to try again! There’s the bulk of a week to catch up on so I’ll do a drive by. Continue reading

Bits & Bobs: Vacays, Videos, Very Compromising Positions & Much More

10 Jul

I had one of those days again – really hectic and I’ve got a bit of a headache going on. As I work during the day, I take notes, paste URLS, etc. on Notepad of stuff that I want to write about, interesting bits, etc. So today, I had a HUGE file going and my computer threw the Blue Screen of Death and I lost it all. I’m sure there were some major gems in there (or not!) but I’m going to try to add all that I can remember before bedtime. First up, some vacation goodies! Continue reading

Rafa Presentation At The Bernabeu

7 May

Hey all! Apologies for being so quiet for the last day or so.  Since I got back from Bonaire, I’ve basically been asleep or doing all sorts of chores (laundry, shopping) before starting back to work today. I did manage to go out to dinner last night and bumped into watishista P and her lovely family.  ::waves::

A huge arse thank  you to my other half, the brilliant Maisougio for kicking such butt on all the daily stuff and the mammoth job of handling the celebration posts. I still have more pictures, but they’re on my netbook that I use for traveling. Gotta get them off there and posted.

Today was the presentation of the big Rafa Nadal July charity match at the Bernabeu and several of the boys were on hand: Xabi, Pirata, Morata, Karanka & Mou. Continue reading

Arrival In Sevilla/Marcelo & Pepe Meet The Fans/Today We Train With…Iker/Alma Gala

9 Mar

Our fine gentlemen arrived in Sevilla tonight in anticipation of tomorrow’s game against Real Betis. I can’t believe they flew. Why didn’t they just take the AVE? It’s like 2  1/2 hours by high speed train right? The flight can’t be more than an hour but I guess when you’re Real Madrid, you don’t have to deal with all the crap like security lines, etc. I’m guessing they probably get to skip that because everyone of them would get pulled aside for a pat down. Because seriously, if I were a TSA agent and they came through my airport, I’d be conducting as many first team strip searches as humanly possible. Continue reading
