My present for my dad was a big success; I gave him a photo book I've made from the pictures of our Egypt trip, as I found a company that managed to print and ship it so quickly that it arrived just in time this morning. Now I'm lounging around lazily with my netbook while my dad lights the grill. I'm so looking forward to the match, even though my brother S. is the only other who showed up for my dad's birthday - that's what you get for having your birthday on the day of the World Cup half final. ;) But it's still better than watching it all alone. And no matter what, when we get into the final I'll make people go to the huge public viewing area in the city, because if we win, I want to be where the party is. Last time we won the World Cup I was ten, which isn't exactly the age where you go off to party until the next morning - even though back then I at least got an autograph from our then-goalie Bodo Illgner.
Anyway, I'm wearing my lucky team shirt, and we haven't lost yet while I'm wearing it, so Spain will stand no chance no matter what Paul the octopus predicts. *g*
ETA: Oh, awesome! Look at this: http://www.spiegel.de/netzwelt/web/b
Seems that the law of symmetry has already decided who'll get the Cup... ;)
