Stay-at-Home Christmas

Yesterday, I spent something like seven hours marking exam scripts – even forgoing dinner! Today, it’s another six hours. And tomorrow, it will be more or less of the same – six or seven hours of mental drudgery and also mental anguish! This is how I looked yesterday, how I look now and how I will look tomorrow:



No kidding!

Anyway, it’s Christmas and I am playing this song right now to cheer me up!


There were criticisms hurled at Liverpool players for rallying round under-fire Luis Suarez. They had worn white t-shirts with an image of a celebrating Suarez on the front and the player’s name and number on the back as they warned up before their EPL match with Wigan last Wednesday. Even manager Kenny Dalglish had one of the said t-shirts as he conducted his pre-match television interview, and said it highlighted the strength of feeling the players and staff had for their colleague.

I am proud that the club is united in showing support for one of their own!

Celtic scored a 2-1 victory over Kilmarnock. The former produced their first goal when the latter conceded possession deep inside their own half, and Cha Du-Ri sent a high ball into the box from the right and Georgios Samaras's downward header found the net (45+2). Their second goal came when the striker netted again with a driven shot from the edge of the box (53). Killie only managed to pull one back when substitute Danny Racchi fired home a blistering shot from 28 yards (87).
