Losses and obsessions

Standard

Oops!

Poor France. Silly Zidane.

Now the majority of you won’t care about the football. But Italy claimed the 2006 title this morning, eventually triumphing over France on penalty shootouts 5-3.

France’s star player (also on his last international game) managed to get himself red-carded by headbutting another player’s chest. Oops. Would France have won the shootouts with Zidane? possibly. Lots of men crying all round, though. Ahhh, the Europeans.

In other news, my fatigue may not be fatigue. Oh joy. I will let you know later, but I am off to the doctor this afternoon with some worrying symptoms. Don’t stress, I’ll do that for you.

I’ll leave you now with an entertaining phone conversation from last night:

CEILIDH
I’ve figured out your obsessions.

KAT
My obsessions?

CEILIDH
Your television obsessions, in particular.

KAT
Oh yeah?

CEILIDH
You know why you love Will and Grace?

KAT
Um, it’s funny?

CEILIDH
No. You’re Grace.

KAT
How am I Grace?

CEILIDH
You’re Grace. X Files?

KAT
Amazing show.

CEILIDH
You’re Scully.

KAT
How can I be Grace and Scully?

CEILIDH
Gilmore Girls?

KAT
I’m Lorelai?

CEILIDH
Bingo. La Femme Nikita?

KAT
Let me guess, I’m Nikita.

CEILIDH
Now you’re getting it. Do you see the underlying narcissism here?

KAT
Bah. What about Mad About You?

CEILIDH
You’re Jamie! Or Lisa. I can’t decide.

KAT
Scrubs? Don’t say I’m Elliot.

CEILIDH
No, you’re not Elliot.

KAT
Thanks.

CEILIDH
You’re Jordan.

KAT
Hey! I am not. She’s scary.

CEILIDH
After a few drinks, you’re scary.

KAT
Whatever. That 70’s show?

CEILIDH
Umm… you’re Donna. Minus the redness.

KAT
The “redness”?

CEILIDH
Oh and you’re half her height.

KAT
Hanging up now.

CEILIDH
You can’t hang up! I’m calling from Scotland!

KAT
You use that excuse every time to call and badger me. It drives me crazy. You make me want to clean things.

CEILIDH
Okay, okay, I take it back. [pause] You are Elliot.

First big laugh I’ve had in ages.

KAT
Is this your invoice?

B
Yeah.

I turn to leave.

B
(looking at my back, my shirt is sheer) Hey, is that a tattoo?

KAT
Huh? No, I don’t have any tattoos.

B
Really? You seem like one of those tattoos girls.

KAT
“One of those tattoos girls?” ..Ok..?

B
You don’t want one?

KAT
Well maybe sometime, but not yet.

B
No big rose on your breast?

KAT
Ha.

Later today passing back by..

KAT
Why am I one of those “tattoo” girls?

B
I dunno. You just look like one of those tattoo girls. You seem like you’d have a tattoo on your butt or something.

KAT
On my butt? I look like a “girl who has a tattoo on her butt”? what, like a nice girl with a dodgy butt tattoo?

B
(laughs) Yeah. No really. You ever been to Mexico?

KAT
Mexico? (laughs) No. I wanted to, though.

B
Well that’s what I mean..

KAT
What, that I’m the kind of girl who’s nice but goes to Tijuana and does something stupid?

B
(laughs) Well yeah.

KAT
(laughing) Thanks, buddy.

Crazy texans.

Here’s Johnny

KAT
Hello?

MOTHER
Hi… there’s a movie on we’ve started to watch, was wondering if you’d seen it.

KAT
What is it?

MOTHER
It’s called The Shining..

KAT
Oh no no no. You don’t want to watch that -wait. You haven’t seen The Shining?

MOTHER
No. Your father’s watching it.

KAT
Dad won’t like it.

MOTHER
Why not?

KAT
It’s scary.

MOTHER
Scary how?

KAT
Haunted-hotel-ghosts-driving-you-to-kill-people kind of scary. It’s Stephen King. And Kubrick. And Jack Nicholson. It’s scary.

MOTHER
Oh. Peter? You don’t want to watch this one.

FATHER
Why not?

MOTHER
It’s got Jack Nicholson.
