Can Such Things Be?

It's been a long weekend and I'm not sure I can make sense of anything any more.


  1. Susan B., anxious mother of freshman daughter,August 19, 2007 5:34 pm

    i'll bet my weekend has been longer than yours. took my first-born to university and left her at a dorm whilst outside, all the student-rented houses were having keg parties on their porches, with the boys hoisting their cups of beer to the incoming girls.

    and my kid has given herself a new name. i called her cellphone to discover that my Alix is now "Lexie." Aiyi. I left this message: "You'd better call your mother and let me know you're okay." Instead, she texted her brother: "Tell Mom I'm fine and that she has to stop worrying about me now that I'm at college."

    Stop??? I've only just begun. One of those wretched boys on a porch lifted his cup to me with a crooked grin on his face. I knew what he was conveying: "Hey, lady, I'll be looking after your daughter now. Me and my buddies...hehe."

    I'm terrified.

  2. As the great Michael Winner would say to all City fans 'Calm down dears'. However, Micah Richards played like a God. He's a footballer.

  3. 'Sven for England', I say. No, no....I'm not thinking straight!

  4. So Bryan, time for a long and classic interview with Noel Gallagher? Well done City, shame that Chelsky stole a goal...

  5. We say yes. And we say

    Fergie for England (Sven's too busy being God :-) )
