Sport Overdose.

I have just shouted myself hoarse coaching a bunch of twelve year old girls. We couldn't find them a girls team to play against so they mixed in with the boys. Every one of them is better than all the boys on that team. I feel awesome. Also come September I may have a second job going into the school to coach them. Also also my own game is tomorrow :D:

I did two races in the past couple of weeks. There was a two mile handicap which is going to go down as the only race I will ever win in my life (19:47! When did I start ten minute miling?). Hilariously it's the one thing in the club that my dad never won. Mine is the BIG cup :D

On Sunday I did a 5k in 30:46. I sprinted the last 200m and did not make it out of the finishing funnel, taking a little nap. Face down. In the dirt. My friends responded to this with "There's another race in three weeks! We'll get you under 30 by then :)" I love/hate those guys.

EDIT: Meant to put this up last week. I love my job.

Swine flu: it's funtiems.

UUUURGH that was horrible. I lost seven pounds in five days and made the mistake of hanging out with runners today. They looooooove weight loss. I had to threaten to sneeze on them. On the upside, I managed to keep the whole running thing from my football team and spent the first day of the new season HEROICALLY SPRINTING PAST THEM at training. I don't think I've seen so many people go "..." IRL before. It was great.

Also, I figured out why I'm such a bad Manic Street Preachers fan, and love their commercially stuff way more than their proper stuff. It's because he enunciates so much more clearly in the commercial stuff. James Dean Bradfield, why do you hate me?


What happens if we steal their rackets?

I am sure I don't have to tell you how awesome the A-Team was. Because it was the most awesome. I am rethinking my position on Jurassic Park being the greatest movie of all time. Also: kinkmeme.

Everyone please enjoy the Guardian tennis liveblogger while you still can, because I get the feeling they won't be invited back tomorrow.

8.40pm: It's 56 games all and darkness is falling. This, needless to say, is not a good development, because everybody knows that zombies like the dark.


Luton Sports Awards

Oh man, award ceremonies are so boring. So. Boring.

But my dad got second in coach of the year! Only his frenemy (he is nearly sixty and he has frenemies. It is hilarious) got sports administrator of the year and he had to pretend to be pleased. And then we had to give the guy a lift home to the pub. It was great.


Oh dear

Hey, remember when I got really drunk at my football end of season party? Well the guy from the Irish Post newspaper was there. Apparently we were entertaining enough for nearly a whole page.

What I did on my holidays

You guys, small children are hilarious. Especially when you don’t particularly like the person who’s supposed to be looking after them and they’re smart enough to be naughty on command.

My mum had a go on my cousin’s quad bike. She got about five metres and ran straight into his van. His parked van. I cried laughing.

Then I went to Dublin and drank for four days straight. I had the best tickets ever for the match. Seriously, I found the seat, looked up and assumed I was in the wrong place.

I took so many pictures )

My friend got right up close to one of the Cork players and asked if she could take a picture of him. He told her to fuck off. I’m sure no Kerry player would have done that!

Then there was alcohol. Lots of it. Things to know about Dublin:

1) When you get kicked out of a pub in Temple Bar for throwing fruit at someone wearing a Dublin shirt (look, they had oranges in a bowl with a sign saying ‘please take one!’ What did they think was going to happen?) you get kicked out of every pub in Temple Bar, because they all have radios.

2) When you get kicked off a Dublin bus for being drunk, you can just get the next one. At about four or five in the afternoon oh God.

3) You can’t get served while wearing a Kerry shirt. You have to give a friend your money for the round.

Sunday night was crazy, because all the football people were still out. We ended up between a group of Cork boys and a group of Kerry boys. They had a dance off. An actual dance off. I’ve never seen one before.

We got a hold of one of the little Kerry make up packs that give you a stripe of green and gold face paint, and we went up to every red shirt in the club, told them they had something on their face and then swiped them. One of them took a swing at Ash and I had to put him in a head lock to get him off her.

We got two apartments between us, and on Monday night I was out with the girls in the other one. I had to leave the door unlocked for the ones in mine, and as soon as I went to sleep they sneaked in and turned every stick of furniture except the bed I was in upside down.

I slept through the whole thing.

My life is awesome.

Tonight in training we learned how to do this

We won our football match yesterday! Still not entirely sure what happened there. We've never actually won a match before.

Smokin' Aces is the kind of film that's more fun when you imagine the actors are playng the characters you associate them with, rather than the characters in the film. Keamy from Lost and new Kirk kill Daredevil! Richard from Lost kills Jack. God, I love that bit. Random guys from gangsters films are FBI agents! Deadpool cries really prettily!

Speaking of Ryan Reynolds, he is fast becoming my favourite person ever. This is what he had to say about making a Deadpool film:

"Look, I'm into any role in which I get to kick Captain America in the nuts,"

There's so much to do with a movie like this, so much you can do, and I'm just trying to figure out a way to structure all of those things around kicking Captain America in the nuts.



Writing stuff

I'm doing [profile] maynowrimo but I'm keeping all my writing bits and pieces here so you don't have to put up with it. It's going to be flocked like whoa because lol my writing.

My dad took the football training session tonight because he said we needed more fitness. Sprinting for five minutes at a time is not fitness, dad. It's death.

Our captain hurt her finger practicing catching before the match on Saturday. It's broken. After the match we all piled on top of her and. Um. Broke two of her ribs.

We might need to be a bit more careful and/or lose some weight :D:

I am actually going to die this weekend

Saturday morning, I've got to pick up my bf. We've got a match at 3pm, after which we're going to the pub. At 8 we're going to a club in Luton, then at 11 we're going down to the Ministry of Sound in London for the coach's birthday. At 7am they're going home, but not me! Oh no. I'm going straight to Blackheath to watch the start of the London marathon with my dad. We're walking to the 7 mile mark at Greenwich, then 15 and 19 at Canary Wharf, then the finish in St James's Park.

Yeah, it was nice knowing you guys.

I went to see Arsenal!

I still hate Arsenal :(

I did manage to wear my Spurs cap, though.

I has a punchbag >:)

There is very little more gratifying in this world than getting the ball right in front of goal and hearing the goalkeeper going 'oh no, not you DDDDDDDDDDD:'



You guys must be sick of football by now

Yesterday I went to the park with my dad to get a bit of sneaky practice in, and found half the team doing the same thing. So, impromptu dad-led practice!

The thing I most looked forward to about playing football rather than hurling was no more broken fingers from bad blocking! Yay!

damnit )

I'm not very good at the high catch. I didn't post this yesterday because I didn't think you'd believe me :( Also, I was too busy getting a hold of a leaked film >:)

More Deadpool

Big version here.

Hey, does anyone know some good things to get my fitness up? I just played football for 2 1/2 hours and I was knackered by the end. Well, by the middle, really. Note: I hate running.

HIIIIIIIIIIIIII. I've been at the pub with my football team, but it was totes legit because we were learning strategy and tactics and rules and shit (I only realised just how often I use the phrase 'and shit' after watching this.

One girl brought the best of Leitrim but we didn't watch that because it was only about thirty seconds long. We saw the first half of last year's All Ireland final but not the second half because my team did shit :( Even if you didn't know them you could tell our coaches were brothers because one of them kept fucking around with the dvd until the other one had to slap the remote out of his hand.

Then we saw a proper training video, and we were all excited until we turned it on. It was for five years olds. They were better than us :(


Football kicked my ass

I am so tired. So very tired. And I can't kick pass out of my hand properly. I keep hitting the ceiling. It only needs to go about four feet high, self :(

Is anyone up for going to see Watchmen on Tuesday night at the Finchley road Vue?

Finally (yay disjointed posts) holy shit look at Deadpool. Yes please :9


I am watching Bruce Springsteen!

It's almost worth putting up with all that American football for. I hate American football so much. It's not a sport, you guys. It's maths. And they have to keep stopping for a rest, like, every ten seconds. WTF kind of sport is that?



Arsenal suck!

When three ex-footballers from your rival team approach you and ask for directions, the correct response is to send them way off the wrong side of town, y/n? Or else I'm just a bad person. Which is very possible.

I think Ray Parlour tried to hit on me, but I'm not entirely sure. I'm really good at repressing things like that *shudder*

They may still be out there, looking for their cars.
