We’ve got Willie on the Wing

A mixed weekend of World Cup football. Ireland pull off a great result against Holland, guaranteeing them a playoff place, and Scotland prolong the qualification agony with a poor goal-less draw with Croatia, leaving us needing to beat Belgium on Wednesday.

(Apparently, England had not a bad result either, but only against a Germany team whose defence I could have cut open myself with a slightly-sharpened sponge).

My bit of the GNOME Human Interface Guidelines is finally taking shape– nothing committed to cvs as yet, but at least I’ve finally had time to write something.

Still haven’t found what I’m looking for…

My first mildly pleasant weekend for a while passed partly in the company of an actress friend of mine from London. Admittedly she was mostly over in Dublin not to see me, but ageing bland middle-of-the-road popsters U2 at Slane Castle, but it was great to see her again anyway… young, single, gorgeous and talented, we’re a perfect match 😛 (Were it not for the fact she thinks I’m merely “cute” and “sweet”, which are of course a the most illusion-dispelling words in a girl’s armoury.)

Anyway, back to reality, and there’s a surprisingly shallow pile of email to catch up on this sunny Monday morning, so it looks like I may have to spend the rest of it doing proper work. Such is life.
