Indian, Dutch, Velvet, Frankenstein

Well, I decided not to work today. Being called in on Saturday and having to go in on Monday ON MY WEEK OFF pushed the decision that I should really have today off regardless of how much I could/should be getting done.

Everyone's still asleep here, although I think I might start shaking bodies to see if people want to head to the pub for Sunday Roast. It seems a long time ago that I made myself a few slices of toast and a bowl of Weetabix :-p

Last night after work Sarah and I headed off for a good Indian meal before heading over to mine to watch the Holland - Sweden Quarter Final. We were originally going to be going to a Dutch pub just off China Town in London but me having to work scuppered that idea. Left to my own devices I would have been supporting Sweden last night but having a Dutch girlfriend sort of changes your perspective (at least if you don't want to be blanked for the rest of the night ;-p). Tight match though with both sides playing well and to be honest either of the teams could have won the game it was so close. Not too keen on some of the Dutch theatrics on occasion though. Anyway, the match went to penalties and Holland beat Sweden to play Portugal in the Semi's next week. Tonight probably sees the Czech Republic beat Denmark, the winner of which plays the in-form Greece.

My prediction - a Czech Republic - Holland final with the Czech's winning.

After the footie Dave, Sarah and myself watched the wonderful 'Blue Velvet' and were then invaded by the drunken Sasha, Daz and Becki stumbling through the door after a nights pubbing and gigging. Dave and I headed off to respective beds (my eyes were hurting due to still wearing old prescription glasses) but the other guys chatted until close to 4am before crashing out.

This morning - well I've been catching up on a few things and also started reading the new draft of Frankenstein Factory that was submitted this week. I can't wait to see this one finally in print....
