Algarve Break
( published 17th June 2002 )

Hi All,

a bit stressed out I decided to fly to Algarve for the weekend ( and take Monday off ). Great, I would finally have time for watching some World Cup football ( 6 matches over the weekend Saturday-Sunday-Monday ) and go to the beach. Confidently I got up on Saturday morning at 7.30 and switched on my TV. National TV one, national TV 2, Spanish channel, etc, no football anywhere. After a quick call to my dad, I understood that only pay channels were broadcasting the games of this World Cup. Doooh!

So I ended up watching England-Denmark on BBC in Sir Harry's Pub eating an hamburger and chips among dozens of Brits. Shame on me, with all the fresh fish around! My ancesters must despise me.

Have a nice week ahead

Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse were in divorce court. "Mickey," the judge said, "I'm sorry. I can't grant you a divorce on the grounds of insanity. Minnie seems quite sane to me."

"I didn't say she was insane!" exclaimed Mickey. "I said she was fucking Goofy!"
