well as you can tell this weekend was followed by a public holiday, Martin Luther King Day so we got a long weekend. We chose to rest on Saturday as I have been ill with a bad chest and cold, however on Sunday Christopher had a football/soccer match for his team at Caltech, the Cataclysmics, great name right???
So as their only supporter I went to the gym and then went to support them. They don’t usually have subs or a full team, but lo and behold I got out to the pitch just as it was starting and I counted 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 oh wow 10,11,12,13 players, was I imagining this??? I checked with Sebastian he said that they had managed to get 2 or 3 new players, he didn’t know how and didn’t mind how either. But regardless of the amount of players they were playing the baby team of The Undergrads. To make things worse some of them played on the Caltech soccer team. We (the Cataclysmics) had one advantage matching kits.
With me being the only person who watches them play I am also the person who gets Ice for injured people or water if needed.
Anyway the first half went well pretty much both teams on a par with each other, but the second half started and it was kind of all change. They took more possession and scored goals. to cut a story short they won 3-0. 😦
Seen as it was a public holiday and no work for Christopher on Monday we arranged via out friends Carolin and Ruediger to go to The Congregation.
The main aim was to have one of a couple of last nights out with them before they leave at the end of March.
You may notice a lack of pictures as it turned into a beer and whiskey fueled night. So picture-taking was put on a back burner, plus who wants pictures of 4 people sitting around drinking??
Any way they closed around midnight so we all decided lets go home, by home I mean to our apartment and continue with Scotch.
We tried to teach Ruediger that Carolin as his wife is ALWAYS right. Christopher learnt this which makes me happy and he was teaching the class backed up by Carolin and myself. hehe. I hope Ruediger learnt something.
Anyway at 2:30am we all decided it was bedtime.
The next day we were kindly woken up firstly by Christopher alarm clock, but we fell back to sleep, then by a “lovely” gardener at 7:50am. Come on seriously???
I didn’t feel too bad apart from lack of sleep and the fact that my cold and bad chest came back 10 fold. Regardless of that we both had a relaxing day watching the Presidential Inauguration and then watching Christopher play my game LA Noire.
Whilst he was doing this I had what I dub an old lady hour, I don’t mean having a nap, I mean knitting and having several cups of tea.
That is how a public holiday goes a la Tibbs.
