I just love football! The World Cup is just massive. I thought I would be supporting Spain, but I may have to change my mind, not just because they lost, but because they were played off the park by the Dutch.
At the end of the day I like football, and want the best team to win (or England if at all possible…..).
So ‘Ga Nederland’!
The World Cup is finally here. I just couldn’t wait, and now I don’t have to!
A team from Antarctica didn’t make it this time around, and also my home town of the Arctic doesn’t have a representative, so I am going to have to choose another team to support.
I like supporting underdogs, but at the end of the day I also like supporting the teams who are going to win. I normally wait until the final and pick one of the two teams, but this year I am going to pin my fur to the mast.
So I am supporting England, Brazil and Spain. Two of them because they are the best teams on the planet, and the other because I feel sorry for the players only being on £100k a week…..poor loves.
Come on England…Brazil….Spain!!!!!!!
I see that a new game has appeared on the Snow Falls Gang website (and you can get to it above). It has me (that’s Poots) trying to find my breakfast hidden in a maze.
I can have up to 5 fish…….. that is like more than 4!!!!!
Have a try, its free and I need the fish because I am wasting away to nothing.
Back with a classic Grouch Marx quote!
“Outside of a dog, a book is a man’s best friend. Inside of a dog it’s too dark to read.” – (Grouch Marx, US Comedian 1895-1977)
I think this one is good for me as well!
I am easily satisfied with the very best. – Winston Churchill – British Prime Minister 1874-1965
“Common sense is not so common.”
– Voltaire, Writer & Philosopher 1694-1778
“Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.” ― Oscar Wilde, Writer & Poet 1854-1900
Money can’t buy happiness, but it does buy time so you can keep looking.
It’s that time of the week again, where thoughts turn to the age old problem of explaining why your homework is nowhere to be found. This time we have the added problem that it is the end of half term, so more homework and higher teacher expectations just because you have had a week to do it. This logic is obviously nonsense, as with that extra time you also have to do a lot more important stuff!
Anyway, given the unrealistic expectations of completion we need to come up with a belter. This one needs a bit of work, and rather than an excuse it really relies on misdirection.
You have to pretend you have gone mad!
I would start by wearing underwear on you head. If you can, walk into the classroom backwards singing ‘If I only had a brain’ from the Wizard of Oz. If you can’t sing, even better. You can then use your imagination for the conversation that follows. Speak in tongues, only use colours, don’t say anything at all, just smile and dribble a little….. Are all possibles.
Depending on how believable you are and how trusting your teacher is, you may have to keep it up for 10mins to several hours. But if it gets you out of a weeks worth of homework, it will be worth it.
“A room without books is like a body without a soul.”
― Cicero (Roman philosopher 106 bc-46 bc)
Nice words from the old boy. So why don’t you add to your soul with books about me?
Check out the first 2 books in the Snow Falls Gang series. They have got words and pictures, so what’s not to like?
