Good Times

I haven't looked forward to a weekend so much in a long time.

The reasons are simple enough: (1) Australia vs New Zealand and France vs England in the Rugby World Cup semi-finals; (2) the challenge of moving my weblog to my newly bought web-domain and hosting, by installing Movable Type to the server; and (3) a round of golf in the early hours of Sunday morning.

We don't change much in life. When I was 10 or 11, my weekend in Dublin would have been: (1) a football match on Saturday morning; (2) watching the English football on Saturday afternoon; (3) pitch-and-putt on Sunday afternoon; and (4) hours and hours spent messing around on my Commodore 64.

Sport and closet-geekdom: the only real difference now is alcohol, a wife, and a dodgy knee. Oh, and thousands of miles.
