French Football and Cafe au Lait

Allez les Bleus!!! Allez France!!!!

I knew it was going to be an interesting start to the work week when the office coffee tasted like, well, like crap. A little sugar and cream and I hoped it would at least be palatable. The first sign that I was to be disappointed was the swizzle stick coming out of the cup melted.

The French football team started off their 2008 Eurocup campaign against Romania. I have nothing personally against the Romanians, but Les Bleus are supposed to win. Alas and alack, it was a nil-nil draw. Gasp. unheard of. Unthinkable. Then the Netherlands crushed Italy in the same group, 3-0, thereby taking command of the group standings. It's going to be very tough for France to progress, with upcoming games against the Dutch and Italy. Very tough. sigh.....

From Jamaica came Karma John
Who'd say, "I love my Dharma, mon."
But when he died
His spirit sighed
For he came back as grated Parmesan


It's a bit frustrating trying to get this update posted since my cat, Hoagy Charmichael, is trying to help me type. He's not helping.

Sure, try to cut Hoagy out of the limelight by "claiming" you typed the brilliant poem. We know Hoagy is the true master mind behind your keyboard.

Hoagy, can you hear me? Are you still there?

It was all me. Hoagy skats on his jazzy meows and chases the cursor acros the screen. Yeah, big help he is.
