So a British player accidentally kicks the ball into her team's own goal and loses the semi-final world championship game. Now check out the tweets from fans in the article. Can you imagine US fans tweeting these sorts of comments? http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/soccer-fc-yahoo/extra-time-own-goal-sinks-england-against-japan-in-world-cup-semifinal-020856930.html 
Laura Bassett inadvertently knocked a cross into her own goal in extra time to give Japan the win.

As a treat, showed the Squirrel Boy the "Star Trek" episode of "Futurama." He totally got all the jokes, and nearly choked himself laughing over, "We're just pawns in his game of checkers."  I personally still find, "He's not a child! He's thirty-four!" to be the height of Trek-satire brilliance.

This is why I'm in no hurry to have the Tufa go to Hollywood.  If you don't know the history, read the first blog she links to.  It Gerritsen wasn't a best-selling author already, she would've never been able to take it this far; most writers would just be screwed from the git-go.

Because I couldn't work on the book this morning (babysitter called in sick), I attacked the old fenceposts around the back yard that I've been meaning to take down, along with a fair number of brush stumps that needing cutting off at the ground. Now my back and hands are killing me, but the yard is getting easier to mow without all these obstacles. Four posts down, seven more to go.

New term invented at breakfast this morning: "Liquid Pity."

Definition: when your server brings everyone else at the table their drinks except you, and someone offers you a sip of theirs until yours arrives.

At my blog today, I talk about the time I met Chely Wright​ in Nashville years ago, and my thoughts after watching her documentary, "Wish Me Away." 
So one time I met Chely Wright. It was around 1998. I worked in a Nashville mall at the Bombay Company, a repulsive chain store that sold overpriced foreign-made furniture and faux artsy knickknacks. I…

Just watched "Wish Me Away," a documentary about country singer Chely Wright's coming out. It was one of the bravest things I've ever seen, because I've been around the core country music* audience all my life, and believe me, there's a reason they ain't known for their compassion or forgiveness. Just ask the Dixie Chicks.

*no, obviously not all country fans. Hell, I'm a country fan. But I suspect you know exactly the kind of people I mean.
