Sleep Deprivation (2004-06-24)
KL is the one deprived of sleep here. In the case of a 3:30 am
match, he'd try to catch a couple of hours of sleep before and after
the game but that is still pretty tough when you work a day job.
I can always take a nap in the afternoon and I'll be as good as gold
for the next early morning match.
Our snack of choice when watching a soccer match is not the usual
chips and dips but fresh corn. Sounds weird but we like it,
especially Japanese-grown corn which is so sweet and plump. We've
picked up this corn-eating habit during World Cup 2002. While KL
chomps away on an ear of corn in big bites, I would eat mine a single
kernel at a time after plucking it off the cob by hand. One whole
ear of corn usually takes me well into the second half of a game.
I like to make good things last.
And my prediction for this year's winner? With any luck, I
could see Czech Republic and England battling it out in the
finals. I'd better go stock up on corn.
