They're going home, they're going home, England's going home...

So that's it for England in the World Cup then. This was the first time in a while that I'd taken more than a casual interest in England's progress and it has certainly been an emotional rollercoaster, especially today - brief moments of hope, bitter disappointments, anguish, embarassment, a nagging feeling that the whole is less than the sum of its parts and that things could have been so much better.

Guess that's what it must have felt like to be a Stargate Atlantis fan...

It's weird. When Gerard scored that early goal in the opening match against the USA, things really looked like they might be different this time. Kind of went downhill from there, really. The pub aeshna_uk and I were in wanted the referee's and linesman's heads on a pike too!

Oh well, secondary allegiance time: Hup Holland Hup!

In my case, it stems from 18 months working out there in Amsterdam, Utrecht and Delft. One of these days I have to go back and revisit some old favourite bars and restaurants!
