I've been reading a lot of the mainstream media blogs covering the World Cup. I'm finding them far more inciteful than the (supposed) analysis of the modelled country press conferences that are being given.
In pursuit of this I logged on to the Telegraph website the other day, one I rarely if never venture to and blow me down there's David Bond on the front page. Dave who I used to pick up on Figges Marsh every morning on the way to school. I knew he was doing well, but I hadn't realised how well, I'm really pleased for him he was an absolutely top bloke.
I lost touch with pretty much all my school mates after school, things were complicated due to a rather annoying relationship with one boy, that no one really liked and I couldn't get rid of. However, I thought sod it I'll give him a shout, emailed him through the blog and we're going out for a beer with a couple of old mates also from school. I'm really stoked, I really regrte not having kept in touch with many of them.
