Quote of the (Fri)day

Juliet, the dice were loaded from the start
And I bet and you exploded in my heart
And I forget the movie song
When you wanna realise it was just that the time was wrong, juliet ?

A magnificently extravagant and extraordinary day/night 1 as a 27 year old. The World Cup starts in one minute, I'm wearing a bright yellow Ecuador jersey found fortuitously by dad at some Salvation Army, surely in preparation for today. And the grand Stayner's draw for the trip to White Point is tonight. As Vonnegut often asks, "If this isn't great, what is?"

The world is wide and wonderful. And for the next month its eyes are on the bold players attempting so valiantly to kick a little ball into the back of a deceptively large net. Best of luck to them all. But C'mon ENGLAND. I should have spent the 30 pounds and bought that Rooney jersey underneath St. Paul's.

It is a fortunate life, when that is one of your main regrets.
