Oh What To Do?!
So another weekend but this time I’m at home and on my own. Cat is visiting Hannah who was Bridesmaid in Chief (as I like to call it) at our wedding. I decided not to go as I’ve been away many weekends recently and just fancied staying at home and well, just enjoy being at home. I’ve mostly just played XBox and watched TV as well as watching the unfortunate spectacle that was England Vs Macedonia. Tomorrow will probably be much the same but that doesn’t bother me as because very soon things at Uni will kick off and that when I’ll have to put some work in, more than now anyway!
The England match, as I previously mentioned, was a dire display of football. Okay so 0-0 isn’t a loss strictly speaking but to be honest, with the talent we had on the pitch we should have walked it. This is no disrespect to Macedonia, they came out, frustrated our players and their defence played a blinder but what it does show is the current trend in England teams. As soon as our tactic for the match is beaten we seem incapable of adapting at times. We sometimes fluke it and win, others a sheer act of brilliance makes the difference, but today we had neither and 0-0 was the result. Let’s just hope that the same doesn’t happen against Croatia in mid-week as that really would put us in trouble!
Got myself a DVD re-writer for my PC as well this past week. Finally I can get some stuff of my PC as well as create the odd DVD video that I can play in my DVD player in the front room. Let me tell you, watching stuff on my main television is a billion times better than watching on my PC screen. It’s a dual-layer one too so if I really wanted I could buy dual-layer DVDs to write on but for now the stuff I’m doing I don’t need to. THis tiny upgrade has also highlighted the fact that I really want to upgrade Gandalf (my main Windows machine, yes it’s named after the LoTR character). I mean it’s starting to show its age now and I really want to get new components in so things are catered for. for a little while at least. Still it would require a heck of a lot of money and while some may say it’d be cheaper to buy a new PC I don’t need that as I have a very expensive case as well as nice prepherials that I want to keep so buying new is out of the question. Silly you may say but hell, I like building the damn things and chances are I wouldn’t get a Hiper PSU from a Dell!
