Daydream factory

My niece is going be to married in a couple of months time, and I was talking about some of the arrangements with my brother yesterday evening. I mentioned that I've booked a hotel for K and I for the relevant weekend, and my brother said that some of my sister-in-law's family have booked at the same place. Cue the daydream/fantasy machine. My sister-in-law's niece, who I've known for thirty-odd years, albeit not that well, will probably attend the wedding, and given her age, she's got a family of her own. And the woman's youngest son is gorgeous. The last time I saw the boy, at my nephew's engagement party about three or four years ago, was 9/10, so he'll be 13-ish now. There's no guarantee that he'll be at the event, never mind that he would be interested about me - in any sense - but, oh, if he did....

Masochists' corner

Well, it's that time of the year. The time when all of us St Kilda 'tragics' ponder might befall in the new AFL season. From my perspective, 10000 and change miles away from the UK to my beloved team, the signs don't seem promising. As far as I can see, the pundits, and even many true believer red, black and white fans, consider us no-hopers. Not quite wooden spoon contenders, but not far from that point. But I'm not nearly so pessimistic as that. I don't, for a second, think that we're Premiership material, but I think that we could get as far as the finals. It's true that we haven't got any 'stars' (yet - I'm looking at you, Josh Battle, right from 2016 Draft day, and yes, that was a prediction!), but we have, potentially, a good team - and it's a team sport, ultimately. As long we don't get too many injuries, and especially that we're consistent, a problem over the past couple of years, why shouldn't we be good enough?

New Year, new ghost

Plus ├ža change. I've just seen an unbelievably beautiful boy at 'worktown' station, blond, tallish, 14-ish. But, needless to say, he was gone within minutes. 2018 will, I guess, be as crappy as 2017.

One of my sporting heroes

Over the weekend, I saw a little news article about the ski jumping Four Hills Tournament is just ended for 2018. One of the competitors won all four jumps this year, for only the second time, but I was reminded about someone who nearly did the same feat. Toni Nieminen. In 1992, he won three for the Four Hills, two Olympic gold medals, as well recording the official first 200 metre jump. And, at the time, he was unbelievably cute! My hero, even if I sound like a fangirl!

2017, and all that

Sorry, but this post isn't going to be very cheerful. 80%-odd of 2017 was bad enough, bumping along the bottom, or so I thought. Careful what you wish for. October 23 has plumbing the depths of my life into a new nightmare. I've nothing, whatsoever. Would that I had could just die then and there, and no, I couldn't manage even manage that. Karma, I guess. That's what I get for being a boylover, 'they' say would I deserve. Hate to the fullest. Happy New Year.
