Easy Come Easy Go

Follow-up to Flag Frenzy from The Cro's Nest

The flags didn't make it through their first night in Coventry. Only one remains. That one only remains because I chased theifs down the street.

Just like a win against France, easy come easy go.

Flag Frenzy

Writing about web page http://www.netparts.co.uk/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=36

After weeks of admiration, I've finally scored myself some England flags. St. George's crosses shall now bellow proudly in the wind spreading football fever throughout the Coventry area with every journey I make.

Not content with one, or the pair, I've ordered four, because it's 2004. This means England are going to win. Honest!

Here‘s my England team of choice.

What was great about today's game (apart from the 6-1 hammering of our Scandanavian friends) was that Sven started with this team. I think he will go for this team against France too.

Pick your England team here

In the 1960's Ralph Baer created pong. 40 years later came two more excellent ways to avoid revision:

  1. Pong 3D game .
  2. Pong movie .

Cereals of Choice

Cereal is a very serious subject that divides the world’s people. On one side of the breakfast table we have the early birds catching Weetabix, the other side, usually splashing milk about and leaving notorious milk circles under the bowl, is the merry merry coco shreddie cereal eater.

Serious cereal eaters laugh at merry merry coco shreddie eaters. Usually out of the side of their mouths behind their papers. Merry merry coco shreddie cereal eaters are blissfully unaware of this as they are too busy munching down their captain crunch and playing with their new neon rhino.

Of course, cereal is a spectrum ranging from All-Bran to Cookie Crisp and you may find yourself right or left spoon. If you are towards the right spoon you will find yourself reading lots of broadsheets and eating biscuits of Shredded Wheat. If you are towards the left spoon you will be eating more ricicles than alpen and less special k than frosties.

I'm a merry merry coco shreddie cereal eater and my current cereals of choice are sugar puffs and frosted wheats (which close the gap between the merry merry coco shreddie and the serious, which is for later discussion).

I now put it to the floor: Are you left or right spoon or do you completely disagree with my sweeping cereal eating generalisations? (I'm particularly interested in finding a merry-merry-coco-shreddie-serious-cereal-eating hybrid that reads the Telegraph but also eats nestle lucky charms.)
