    Vegetarianism/Veganism

    With all due respect, I guess it depends where in the Balkans you are.

    Vegetarianism/Veganism

    Try spending a fortnight in the Balkans. Strictly Nescafe or Turkish coffee. I miss my Moccamaster badly.

    World Cup : Semi Finals & Final

    So, I’m actually on holiday in Crotia right now. With my Bosnian in-laws’ experience of Croatian nationalism and my mild case of francophilia, we’re watching in the hotel room. Going back to Bosnia tomorrow. Regardless of result, it’ll be interesting to see what the Bosnian-Croats have done to the place. Their nationalism is often accompanied by a hint of violence.

    World Cup : Semi Finals & Final

    Yeah, jk based on this game and the fact he does clearly cheat on penalties. He was indeed very good against England.

    Subasic’s main, and perhaps only, quality seems to be cheating at penalties.

    Has to be great for squad morale to break the curse. Well deserved in the end. Congrats!

    Paddy's "Things that cheer you up"

    Yep, makes eating vegetables an entirely different experience all together. I’m not a big veggie eater, but roasted or sauteed with proper seasoning I don’t mind them at all.

    World Cup : Round of 16

    The sad thing is he really had a good game where he shows glimpses of absolute brilliance, but the only thing I take away from the game is ‘wow, that Neymar really is a horrible little sack of shit’.

    That Schöne in particular wasn’t given a mulligan, is somewhat of a minor scandal.

    I totally sympathize with that kid playing with his phone just there.

    World Cup : Round of 16

    Don’t say that. Just this afternoon he presented me with a bag full of his legos and told me it was my birthday today. (While blocking my view of Spain vs Russia, the inconsiderate little monkey).

    I missed the first 10 of this trying to convince the 3yo there are no wild animals outside his window.

    Blargh. This day is just a C. Ronaldo late winner away from being the worst, like, ever. F****** P*** of all people.

    World Cup : Group D (Arg, Ice, Cro, Nga)

    Then again, Pele has the personality of a vegetable. I’ll take Diego’s antics any day.

    World Cup : Group B (Por, Spa, Mor, Irn)

    Then that’s on them, too. If they can’t handle it, they’re not fit to referee in the World Cup.

    World Cup : Group A (Rus, KSA, Egy, Uru)

    I’m sure we can find a way to blame Raheem Sterling for this too.

    World Cup : Group G (Eng, Bel, Pan, Tun)

    Indeed. But let’s focus on Sterling. Much more fun. Boooo, Sterling, booo!

    World Cup : Group B (Por, Spa, Mor, Irn)

    I think VAR is great. If the refs make bad calls based off it, then that’s on them, not on VAR.

    World Cup : Group B (Por, Spa, Mor, Irn)

    Fair play to Iran, they’ve played quite well. Hard to see them scoring twice, though.

    World Cup : Group B (Por, Spa, Mor, Irn)

    It will be interesting to see how Portugal cope with having to control the game. Important for Iran not to concede early on.
