Llegada_de_Ancelotti_ (1)Hey all – I know I promised an update last night but after a fun time with watishista forzasusan at the New York Red Bulls game (4-0 over the Montreal Impact with Thierry Henry providing 1 goal and 2 assists), we heard the verdict in the George Zimmerman case on the way home and it just took the wind out of my sails.

Whole Lotta Bits & Bobs

20 Feb

600713_550396551657241_1851544586_nYours truly has been totes slacking on the bits and bobs over the past couple of days. If I don’t get them up daily, they start to be overwhelming. So here’s a bit of a clear out. Our adorable capi posted this shot with his dishtowel scarf outside the Bernabeu. However, the big news is that our beloved Iker’s biological clock has obviously hit Code Red.  Continue reading

Requiem For A Sex Beard & Match Preview

9 Feb

Llegada_al_estadio (1)Sadly, the time has come to say goodbye to Chori’s sex beard. Hopefully, he’ll grow it again soon. At least Arbeloa & Sergio still have their’s, right?

So my apologies for being out of the loop yesterday. I spent the whole day moving furniture and tearing up carpet – I only took a break for the match. And what a match it was! Holy shit – I’m still on a high! I’m still in the midst of home renovation so this will have to be another drive by with more later. I took a break to watch the inauguration and now I have to get back to work after this post. Continue reading

Exactly what we want to see: Double A action!

Well then, I had quite an experience last night. Went to a vegan restaurant and on the suggestion of our waitperson, I tried beet wine! I must tell you, it was freaking fantastic! Who knew? I’ve got to learn how to make this stuff. Really interesting. The food was great too.

But on to other tasty things… Chori is front and center in today’s update.  Continue reading
