...that excited.

Wake up there, Muttley, you're dreaming again!
You're not Robin Hood and you're not Gunga Din.
You're not a brave knight or a king who's been crowned;
You're just plain old Muttley, the snickering hound!

oh there is nothing as tedious as ability, don't worry ;)

Finally getting to the writing point where I am enjoying it, it was rather late coming but pushes my excitement up a little bit.

Thanks, I'm sure I'll learn fast :D

I have been looking forward to this game all year. Many people have tried to sway me with invitations both for tonight and tomorrow but I was resolute in my determination. This morning as I sorted my pea green webbing, kilt and Tam O'Shanter and, booked my hotel for Leicester so I would be bright and not too late tomorrow my excitement rose to 10.

This general feeling of bonhomie pushed me to say "Yes of course I'll help with the garden and in particular to pull that very stubborn tree/bush thing out". The result is now pain 10 and disappointment 11. Three hours in the bath and the best knocked off painkillers I could find and I have to be realistic and say my back is in a state that I will unfortunately not be attending tomorrow after all. If I was to attend I would present such an upright, moany, slow moving target with even less stealth and surprise than I normally possess that the course of the war would undoubtedly be altered in a non favourable direction.

I am so desperately sorry, as everyone has said this game is a high point of the year, and beyond the game I am also very upset not to be able to see everyone.

I hope it goes well. Have fun.


I have a small skewer hidden in the collar of my jumping jacket, and a razorblade in my gaiter, as well as my knife.

The curse of the bad back

Pulled mine out Thursday , I will be limping and slouching round site , but I'll be painkillered up and will manage

Me Chris and Matt have been talking about it all week and are all defiantly 10 on the excitement level.

We are driving down about 430an so we have a two hour window to account for any traffic problems

See you all in the morning

Apologies but I'll not be there tomorrow either, I'm having problems with my car and it's unlikely to be sorted by tomorrow morning. Enjoy the day all.
