It finally turned up yesterday, I might refrain from buying clothing from Play.com for a while, they said they sent it on Saturday, took till Thursday to get here. Maybe I’m just too used to Amazon/Expansys next day delivery. I didn’t get grumpy about having to wait a couple of weeks to get the gear from Imperial Clothing.
Just ordered my CURRY for tonight! 😀
Elaichi in Grove is the provider this week, going for chicken Lajeez (first time), Keema rice (frequent) and Aloo Zera (first time). So it is a mission of discovery, should be good. Will of course fill ya in on how good it is afterwards, got to wait a whole 20 more mins before I can go pick it up.
So as promised, I’m on the train on the way to London and I’m tapping away at the long (?) awaited match report.
Tiniest of turn around in the teams, at the last minute “Detention” had to stick around at work to finish “Budgie Smuggler”‘s report. This wasn’t a too bigger problem as “Pick Up An Oar” showed up at the last minute to fill the numbers.
After waiting around for a while for all players (and kit) to show up we got underway. I was told I should include the warm up game as part of the match, which STUDio won about 7-0 but I guess I cant 🙁
As per the kit, they were defo worth the wait. We all looked so sexy in them it has to be said. Was great to see “Roll With It” managed to wear the right colour for once.
A HORRIBLE start for STUDio, going 5 nil down within the first 10 or so minutes. Some desperately bad goal keeping from the award winning keeper “Hot Brother” let 3 in, then a shocking OWN GOAL from a certain someone who does not deserve to have his name in the same sentence as goal. So he will remain nameless, sort of, ***** “I like Women’s underwear” *****. “EEK, spider” took full advantage of the bad goalkeeping and put the first few of his 6 away, one of which was a nutmeg on the weak keeper.
STUDio FC fought hard to come back into it, finishing the game at 10-7 to Topville. I “Under The Hat Is A Comb Over” wont go into too much detail about my wonder goal, picking the ball up and taking on 3 Topville players before slotting it in the corner. The Topville 10 was made up from 6 for “Battery-powered Toy car”, 2 for “Daz White Dentistry” and 1 for “I’ll See You On The Court”. Confusion over the STUDio scorers, 4 of us think we scored 2, so as “captain” I don’t mind taking the moral high ground and mark it down as 1. Even though we all know “Jelly Belly” only scored 1, the rest of his shots went over the fence. So that’s 2 each for “Pencil Sharpener”, “Catwalk Roadkill” and “Doesn’t Know What He’s Getting Himself Into”.
I might make a shame wall and keep a list of who deserved to be sent off in each game. I know for sure I’ll be at the top of the list for this week! I still think “Tweedle Frank” deserved it, but kids its always bad to lash out. I wont be the only person on the list who for this week…
For next week, can we please be on time! It’s due to the 45 minute game instead of an hour game that STUDio lost… Honest!
For the record… all nicknames were supplied by “Wanna be ginger hottie” and “Fatty wants a COOKIE”.
I’ve been arguing with myself over whether or not I can/should post the weekly football write-up emails I send around the office after the game each week. The conclusion is that I can, however that I need to remove all proper names. Therefore as this week’s email included A LOT of nicknames I think I will leave those in and remove real names. Should still be very easy to work out who’s who from those in the know.
That’s what the TV is calling them at-least. I don’t understand how watching football on BBC is so much better than watching it on Sky and worlds better than Setanta. The commentators are generally worse, with the obvious exception of Andy Gray who needs to be shot, will probably do a separate post about him when I have the displeasure of having to listen to him next time.
Onto the actual game then, as I write this there is still another half an hour left (probably less by time I get around to publishing). Seems to me that either Sheffield Utd are pussies and are going down hurt for no reason or, as per a usual game with Middlesbrough, they are getting kicked left right and center. Another normal thing for a Middlesbrough game, Downing is a waste of space. His only tactic is to kick the ball past people then run into them to get a free kick and get the guy booked. Very impressed with Alves tonight, about time he looks fit and dangerous. If him and Mido get their attitude sorted its a very dangerous top line. Shame they will still have Wheater and Pogatez at the back, easily the ugliest, dirtiest and generally awful centre back combination in the league. Remembering that this league has Wes Brown in it….
Come on the Blades
On the request of certain people from the office, I have been asked to write about me switching desks within the office.
An introduction into both, not that it is very easy to describe, but I started off on the researcher side of the office. With my back to the wall on General Researcher 1 desk, between CamCam “Takes it in the” Brown and “Big Rug”. Withers opposite, the Snatchinator and Alex around.
Now I’m moved to the exact opposite end of the office, on the accounts management side. Again I’ve ended up with my back to the wall, watching over the whole office… sorted. Stuck with some Ginger broad and an Amy.
So what do I think of the move… boringly I’ll say it’s different. The Ginger broad has bullied me into saying she is a full scale hottie… make your own decision on that in the picture below. The other let down with this side of the office is the need to do work, on the researcher side there was always a few mins spare to talk about totally random, usually slightly dodgy/inappropriate topics. On the whole, yes it is missed, but bring on the dosh!
