We’ll be having a Wallpaper Tuesday this week, as I am in recovery from a bout of food poisoning. I can highly recommend this as a weight loss strategy, having dropped two kilos in 24 hours. I can’t speak much for the fun factor, though.

And while I was sick and capable of doing exactly nothing, I thought, “Well, I’ll watch the World Cup final and that will lift my spirits…” Sheesh. I’m happy for Japan — their team played with unending spirit — but it would have been nice if the USA had brought its defense along for the game.

You know that watching a football game was a bad idea when you actually have fever dreams about missed penalty kicks.

    I imagine the USA women who missed their penalty kicks and free kicks and attempts on goal during the final minutes of the game are having fevered dreams, too. Kudos to Japan–they demonstrated great mental discipline and toughness. I’m very sorry to hear you have been under the weather and I hope for a rapid recovery for you.

    There is bright future for woman’s football. it’s still free from bad background making football unattractive for many and yet quality of the game is superb.

    Hope you get well soon 🙂

    Good grief! And what are you doing here?!?
    Go to bed and don’t come back until you are fully recovered.
    Here is a box that will help in the process. You will find some flowers, light reading and other little things, but don’t expect chocolate. Instead, it contains a magic potion with amazing rehydrating properties. Of course, it tastes awful.
    Take care

      Thank you for your all well wishes! (And for the sweet ACME Recovery Box, even though it didn’t have any chocolate.) They must be working, as today is a much better day.

    If you can think about chocolate, then you’re probably well by now…

    And I’m quite pleased that Japan won over the US, since they also won over Sweden in the semi. Sweden won over the US in the group finals, so that means that only Japan got the best of them! (Or something. I don’t pretend to understand or even particularly like soccer, but this tournament was interesting!)

    Hopefully you’re back to optimum by now. 🙂
