Well, that was the most stressful and upsetting football match I've ever watched. England beat Portugal 2-1 but for some bizarrre and unknown reason our second goal was disallowed. Therefore it went to extra time and it ended up 2-2. They won on Penalties 6-5. We were clearly the better side. I just can't believe it. The referee must have been Potugese. Agggggggggghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

Yesterday I rode from Clapham Common to Brighton with a group of people from work (as well as a further 30,000 cyclists). We met at 06:00, set off at about 07:00 and got to Brighton at about 15:00. It was a really pleasant day's ride, apart from the final two hours when bad weather hit big time on the hills outside Brighton. Near-horizontal hail stones followed by torrential rain left everyone completely soaked and shivering.

I managed to meet up with a couple of people from our group near the finish, and we located a dodgy cheap clothes store where we purchased some emergency dry clothes. We then found a bar in which to recover, dressed in our new, near-matching, tracksuit trousers and fleece tops.

The company paid for a coach back to London and I got home at about 21:00 where I promptly fell immediately to sleep.

I have some photos in my camera, I'll post a link tomorrow.

I love this sort of headline:
"Teleportation breakthrough made"

Just completed my first legal purchased music download through iTunes. I feel somehow cleansed, from all the illegal downloads I've made in the past.

I bought an album, and at £7.99 (and it's qutie a long album) it's a fair price, unlike the high street stores.

OK, so since last time I've taken part in a 10km run round Hyde park. Here's some photos of me from the day. I look like I'm about to die in the third one. That's because I did feel like I was about to die. Since the race I've done a pitiful one run, and that was this morning.

What else?

Oh yeah, I dated another girl for a short while, but decided, yet again, that she wasn't what I was looking for, so that was that.

Going for a bike ride with some tomorrow morning, so having a night in tonight. The bike ride is practice for the London to Brighton bike ride I'm taking part in on the June 20th.
