Indian cricket lovers without cable were, according to the Beeb, left in the dark. Ha! Welcome to my world. I have yet to find a way to either listen to a live game on the radio or internet, nor catch highlights on any TV station. Apart from this morning, when I was treated to a […]
Yowser! Oh yeah, and I’m still not talking about England’s dismal run (or lack of…) in Pakistan…
From BBC news: Gas explosion halts England Test. Trescothick said: “I feared the worst. I could see advertising hoardings were damaged, but I didn’t know what to do.” (emphasis mine) I think I know what he means, but it read funny the first time.
From BBC news: The day the Aussies were beaten Back online after a week on “holiday” (more on that later). Don’t want to gloat. But am pleased that the English cricket team has finally cracked Australia. It was, to one who could not see any of the play, a close one. Both sides weren’t playing […]
It’s been a crazy wee week… I think we must have gone into every single women’s clothes shop in Edinburgh to find me something to wear for a wedding on Saturday. Fortunately, it’s not my own, so I can afford to look a little less than perfect (ha! like I ever could…). But all the […]

I’ve neglected my duty as a circadian biologist, failing to collect blood samples to measure my cortisol levels (which are probably at a constant high […]
This is brilliant. English women’s sports teams seem to be doing better and better these days. Although they didn’t get far enough in the Women’s European Championships (footie), they certainly upped the profile of the women’s game. Perhaps this Ashes victory will inspire more girls to play cricket in school. I wish I had the […]
From BBC news: Liverpool play Owen waiting game Benitez doesn’t want him. And I don’t want him back either. He might be a good Shearer replacement for Newcastle Comedy Club (trademark the folk who write The Fiver at the Guardian) though.
Australia may have to follow on! Heh. How often does that happen? Not counting chickens before they hatch, but it’s put me in a good mood this morning…
Wish I had my camera with me today. Saw a couple of homeless men at a bus stop in LA with Rangers FC shirts on (yep, that deadbeat SPL team). Newish ones with ntl:home as the sponsor. Wonder if they were supporters…
