Spinning through life on a web of dreams... Unconventional and just slightly eccentric
Don't compare your life to others'. You have no idea what their journey is all about.
*waaaaaaaaah* Brazil 1 : Netherlands 0 : ( Fireworks and vuvuzelas abound...
you have got to be kidding ! brazil is already leading 1:0 in 15th minute ... giggles ! But for your "hearing-sake" I hope that netherlands will win !
Poor Tint! Got earplugs? Kleenex to wedge in the ears? There's room in our camper here!!
Annette, I'm traumatised. If Holland doesn't win, this will go on the whole weekend! Faye, there's a limit to how long I can plug my ears. Perhaps I should tuck into the dog and cat's tranquilliser. I think I may take you up on that camper offer.
Oh dear ! Go Holland go, go holland go !!
Mwahahahahaha!!!!! See what happens when you live in a country when they can actually play properly!!! You better get over here pronto Bokkie!! Jaldi! Jaldi!!
Katey!! You're tormenting me!
*Groan* HUP HOLLAND!!! ... even though that will mean vuvuzelas here all weekend :(
You don't have fireworks too, Riete? Here we have both. Go HOLLAND!!
Of course we have fireworks. And some sort of gas horn (the noise is even more terrible than a vuvuzela).
YAYAY ... 1-1!!
YESSSSSSS!!!! *silence here*
Gas horn? Sounds awful!
YESSSS ... Netherlands 2 - Brazil 1!!Lost of fireworks and horns and vuvuzelas here ....LOL
Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!! I tell you... it's deathly quiet over here now! *grins*
Not that I wish the noise on you lol
Eh... Brazilians don't take losing kindly
WOOOHOOO!!! A MIRACLE!! WE WON!!(The noice is deafening here now, LOL! )
The commentaries on the Brazilian sites were interesting. Brazilians gave up a good 10 minutes towards the end of the game. There are a few desultory fireworks going off... but all is otherwise quiet. No partying tonight *whew*!
"Fim de jogo em Port Elizabeth" and in São Paulo : )
I feel for them (a little bit, lol). When you are considered one of the best soccer teams in the world and you are beaten in the QF, that's hard!But then again, same for us! We ARE one of the best soccer teams in the world ... LOL
Yippeeeeeeeeeee your wish has been granted ! 2:1 to Holland !!!!!
I think Brazil was riding on its past fame. This will be a huge wake-up call for them. I'm just selfishly grateful that I'll have a peaceful weekend after all and work will return to normal : )
Just heard it on TV .. it's the first time since 1974 we have won from Brazil! History has been made here! LOL
I'm so glad for Holland : )
*laughing* This is WAY better than actually watching the games! ;)
I missed it! :( Now you must wear orange tomorrow Riete! And actually Tint you should wear ornage tomorrow too, just to you know, get the boot in!HUP Holland HUP!!!!Holland to win. :)
So what did they do with the vuvuzelas?!! Totally agree with kip, this is way better than actually watching it!!!
I wore orange today. Ok, it was a corally orange, but it passed for orange. Trouble is, there was no one to appreciate it. I've worn my orange "Wie's jou tannie?" t-shirt for most of the week lol
aangenaam!!! Had to look it up, K!Tint, I don't want you to get in trouble over the weekend!!! Be careful with the mad walking vuvuzelas!
haha! Dani, I'm in no danger of getting beaten up. I plan to stay home. I have SO much to do!
I was wondering who you were rooting for!
Hahahaha! I had to google vuvuzelas. I had an idea what they were, but what popped up was "World Cup Organizers will not ban vuvuzelas" Sorry baby. :)
Ien, there was never any doubt. You know how I feel about Brazil and fanatical-about-football Brazil is so much worse. But then, I was never really supporting any team, rather just hoping for peace and quiet... which I didn't get anyway because the local children have rediscovered vuvuzelas as toys *sigh*LOL Kat! Dubious congrats? ; ) You're so lucky you had no idea what vuvuzelas are. They're honestly a plague on mankind.
Thank you for stopping by! Do leave a note, so I know you were here and can visit you too :) Tint~
