world cup mania is upon us once more and as you know (or not, as the case may be), the diva likes nothing more than a bit of armchair sporting mayhem. actually, i like a lot of things more but that’s another story. the internet is awash with predications and counter-predictions but the only opinion that really counts is right here.
so here’s my world cup round-up:
england and greece will make it out of their first round groups but will dismay their fans by not making out of the top 16. both sides will blame their loss on everyone but themselves.
cameroon will be the most cheerful of all the teams and there will be much music and dancing, even though they will be out early on.
one african team will make it through to the semi-finals. my money’s on south africa (home team advantage)
argentina will win.
these predictions have been extremely carefully, almost scientifically, worked out but i bear no responsibility for any bets you might place based on my in-depth knowledge of the beautiful game. whatever happens, it’ll be a spectacular event and one that i am looking forward to following over the next month. i am one of those particularly irritating of football fans who loves the game but isn’t particularly bothered about who wins. i will be cheering on cameroon though, because they have the loveliest fans and i love rigobert song’s hair.
if any one of my predictions comes true, you may buy me a drink. if all of them prove correct, you can buy all my readers and myself a drink (all three of us). see you in our usual “big sporting event” outside spot on the 11th july.
go cameroooooooooooooooooon !
it’s almost impossible to put into words, the events of the past two weeks. i have made a wonderful new friend and found a warm place in my extended family. to all those involved in the celebrations and surprises, i am so happy to have you all in my life. being a diva in my own lunchtime is one thing. being surrounded by love and appreciation is priceless. this will stay with me always.
but this blog isn’t all about me! what about the band?
here’s the gig in pictures
for a run-down of the evening, go to vishy’s words at the bad mathematics site
we will be starting 2008 with a new addition to the bad mathematics empire… this new blog. i got fed up with the myspace blog and all its design and layout limitations. so i migrated the entire thing and the vast amounts of comments (ha ha ha) over to wordpress.
now you can comment on the blog directly or from within our website. cool isn’t it ?
i am wishing you, my dear and faithful reader, a very happy new year. i hope you will be celebrating in a big way (lots of food, drink and friends). i know we will be!
look forward to many more shiny additions to this place next year.
see you on the other side
