I think the country is still in shock. Yes, the unthinkable finally happened at the weekend.
England actually beat Germany at football.
This is unthinkable. We always lose to Germany on penalties. It's the law. Instead. we actually thrashed them 5-1. Now we might actually stand a chance of qualifying for the World Cup. Unbelievable.
A news story that caught my eye today claims that supermarkets have reported a sharp increase in sales of beer since the victory on Saturday. And headache pills. And contraceptives, as people, um, celebrated in style. You can find the story here. These English are a funny lot.
In my spare moments from TrekToday and SlipstreamWeb *snort*, I'm still playing Breath of Fire IV, in lieu of a Playstation 2 and a decent Squaresoft RPG.
This has a great little fishing mini game in it. All over the game's world map are various fishing spots, where you can catch different types of fish. These fish can be exchanged for different items in special shops. I must have spent over an hour yesterday, in search of a flipping Spearfish, only to catch nothing but Bass. Stupid game.
