It's betting time! After much study I have put a tenner on the USA to win. This might seem daft but it's definitely the team with best odds - 80-1. As a non-footballing nation the US is often underestimated, they are actually pretty good, although they have a tough group this tournament. It's highly unlikely they'll win, but they are the only team with such good odds that have a remote chance of doing so. If you want to have a risky flutter that's a bit of a laugh, they're the best bet I reckon.
Let's do the Crouch! On second thoughts, let's not. It looks stupid.
Went to see Surgeon and Jeff Mills but only stayed a couple of hours, leaving after Surgeon's set. I find I get really bored when I go clubbing nowadays, even with pills thrown into the mix. I really don't know why. Give me a house party with a couple of decent DJs and a few cans of Stella and I'll be dancing until 7 in the morning, but put me in a club and I'm bored shitless. It's most peculiar.
So that's that, I'm not going to bother again, unless it's a grime night or something where I'm really, really into the music.
Apparently Jeff Mills was shit anyway. Also - FOUR QUID FOR A CAN OF STELLA.
Fuck Big Brother - I saw the best programme ever last night, the Toughest Pubs in Britain on Sky 3. My favourite was a pub in Birmingham where they all drink strong cider ("you have to be careful because it makes you shit yourself"). One bloke takes his glass eye out and puts it in his glass so no-one nicks his pint when he goes for a piss. The rest of the time he sits there in a corner eating lightbulbs. There was a bloke sat next to him who was a sort of grey-green corpse colour; and another one who's fallen onto a nearby railway line twice when pissed, one time losing a leg under a passing train. He now fills his false leg with cider and drinks from it.
Informative and entertaining, it's what telly was made for.
