Ah, the daily post. Isn't the daily post lovely? This daily post is brought to you by the letter W. Followed by I-N and E. Yay! What can I tell you? It's been a long week. So, what kind of topics are on our minds this coming weekend? I know a lot of people are at Goodwood, but we are not. We are here, holding the fort, and thus we will be talking about other things. Like:

  • Did anyone see that football game last night? Uruguay versus Ghana. I was cheering on Uruguay solely because of Forlan-man who was awesome. Even Steven said he was pretty good which means he was ace in my book. Apparently he plays for some Madrid team in real life though, so I don't imagine I'll get a chance to see him at any point other than the World Cup. So, whilst I'm sad that Ghana got kicked out, yay for Forlan-man. Also, look out for the World Cup post today as it is written by the rather fabulous Lou (and maybe a bit by Lukeh too).
  • I've just finished watching last week's episode of Casualty. I don't care if you judge me on my choice of programmes (I judge myself for watching that episode - as if we are suddenly supposed to care that he thought he was going to die and then he wasn't going to and then he was chasing after her when she was marrying someone she just met at a conference about two minutes ago) erm... where was I? Oh yes, I was watching it on the iPad. An excellent way to consume the iPlayer, I think you'll agree. No Flash involved at all. Yay!
  • And hey, I've been running! Not right now, obviously, because I'd probably do myself an injury. But I've been running and it's fun. Things I never thought I would say. A good excuse for a plug, though, and also, while I think of it, if you struggle to remember that Smarter Than what now nonsense, you can just use mrschristine.com instead. Good times.
  • Finally, don't forget that the Character Cup for 2010 will be starting soon and we'll expect you all to vote. I already think I know who might win it, but I can't wait to find out how everyone else will be casting their votes. It should be starting soon, so stay tuned!

That should do it for now. There's football and tennis on today, and I think there is even some Superleague Formula happening again. It's all go for this early July weekend. Let us know what you're up to, and I will see you in the comments.
