    Well, most of my colleagues have gone home by now if they are interested in the match. Then quite a few had the day/ afternoon booked off because of the match. So there is hardly anyone left in the different departments, except for our finance office, which still has most people available and only two people took the time off.

    I do hope the English win, but my interest exists in looking at the results after the match, rather than at the matches. If Holland or England ends up in the final, I probably watch though. Best would be to have a Holland-England final...

    So, I'm stuck at work, no sneaking off, I started early today, but that's to get rid of some of the backlog in pettycash reconciliations for our shops (3 weeks behind), so no going home early I'm afraid.

    Would be fair, pick a sport and go home for the important matches? Then how many people would all of a sudden follow 10 different sports?

    The bit you put about most of the Finance Dept still being at work is just like the McDonalds advert for the World Cup. Everybody is watching the match except the Finance Clerk! lol

    Well I'm happily ensconced on the sofa with a beer - it's about to kick off now. I booked the week off work for the world cup - it was supposed to be last week until the exam dates came out! Still, works out better this way.

    Thoroughly enjoying my week of well deserved study break and some great football (well, at least the Portugal match!)

    They tuned the radio in (slightly) on the match now. It didn't pick it up on the old spot, so is now temporarily moved behind me, making a lot of noise all the time, because it won't fine tune.... (It sounds like 20,000 vuvuzela's (spelling?) are hiding in the radio.)

    I'm going home in an hour anyways and I think that's a good thing too. I'll be quite soon fed up with the noise.
  • RinskeRinske Font Of All Knowledge Registered Posts: 2,453
    Oke, I'm having a blast now, my manager doesn't want to know anything about the game, as he taped it, so he shut his office door and closed all blinds apart from one.

    My colleague just deliberately ran in front of that bit celebrating....

    And we're rather good at cricket right now, too.
  • RinskeRinske Font Of All Knowledge Registered Posts: 2,453
    Hmm, so cricket, football, darts, tennis, golf any other sports with important matches we could use as a reason to go home early?

    that was a great goal by Donovan! I had it going on my laptop with one earplug in while hubby had the england game on the telly. Best of both worlds I had...lol
    Plus I get off work at 2 being part time so haven't had to miss any of my beloved US games or England games!

    well the vuvuzelas were going mad last night. as we live on an english estate, all of the germans were driving through beeping their horns and blowing their vuvuzelas - how to torment the brits in one go lol

    all of the cars, english and german have a flag in each window, a magnet which is a flag on each door panel and we even have wing mirror cover with the flag on it is so cool. all the brits have their flags out of the windows and the germans all have their flags on poles in their front gardens. it is a really good atmosphere over here, just hope the germans win or there will be hell to pay lol

    I'm sure England can win on Sunday. After all we've already stuffed the Aussies twice in this series.

    What?

    I'm beginning to think that the Americans were more exciting to watch than the ENglish after that performance!

    Holland Germany final would be nice!
  • jenny3549jenny3549 Trusted Regular Registered Posts: 472
    Holland v Germany would be perfect for my dream team and I'll admit to having placed a little bet on Germany before it all started so I may be a little financially biased as to the outcome!
