There's a storm in my teacup!

Well, in my dollar store mug.

Well, England won.
Not now.
To those from across various waters, England won a football game against Switzerland 3-0.

The amount of children running around shouting "England!" and cars tooting as they pass this shop is phenomenal. It scares me, to be frank. You don't see this very often, and it is this that makes this experience rather scary to me.

I mean, it's only Switzerland in a group game, a game we were expected to win comfortably. I don't know, maybe I'm just not cut out to support football teams any more because I can't recall ever getting so excited that I'd chant the team's name out and honk a car horn every 200 metres over a rather academic result.

Still, at least it means there are no riots around here, for now.

Re: Don't mind me, I'm just getting old and bitter about everything.

Because Ireland is a lot more religious than England, and so St Patricks was at one point a lot more meaningful, and this has carried on till today, it is irrelevant now, but the fact that is was once very relevant has kept the day alive to the point it became a standard celebration. St George's has always been irrelevant, what has St George done for us? Why should people have ever cared?

And being a "pure" day to celebrate means it's just one less thing about it to celebrate.
