Storm New Pluggy

The Storm Has Come and Gone

The tornado that was World Cup 2006 has been and gone, leaving in its wake the crushed hopes of many, along with their flags in the gutter*.

The subway is a lot quieter now, as are the streets at night. Far less honking can be heard.

In this post, I stated my disappointment in hooliganism and bandwagon-jumping.

While I still maintain my belief that these types of events can bring out the worst in some, it undeniably has the effect of bringing people together for good times.

My wish would be for those good times to last longer than a week or two…

A New Me

Well, a new look for the blog, anyway.

Actually, it’s an old look for my other blog which seems to work for this one.

I was getting tired of the RSS feeds not displaying properly, and the crazy font shifts. So this new one is here to stay. You like?

Pluggy Pluggy

I would like to direct your attention to the right sidebar. Take a look. I’ll wait.

You done?

Took you long enough.

There you will see a button for Armada Quarterly. It’s an online literary magazine.

It’s a great publication and a lot of work went into it.

Go check it out. You might recognize one of the editors.

They are always looking for submissions…

* – They really have to make those car window flags far more durable. I’ve seen so many of those things fly off and land in the street.

  1. Yay, love the new format! It´s cleaner, more ellegant, easier to be “perceived” with the tabs above. Kudos for you, J!

  2. I, for one, am glad that the World Cup is over. Another 4 wonderful years before I have to hear North Americans who have never left the continent calling soccer “football”.

    And what’s the deal with calling a shoot out “penalties” in soccer? I mean, no one actually got a penalty!

  3. I like the new look Jorge, very organized

    As for the World Cup

    It’s only going to get worst, since we are building a soccer stadium here in toronto for our Canadian Soccer Team to qualify for the 2010 World Cup. What flag will everyone be flying then I wonder?

    Though I defended the world cup before, I am glad it’s over too. It was really fustrating trying to decide on how you would commute every day to avoid the endless parties for the team that ended up winning that day.

    Also I hated the diving, complaining that occured in the field.

  4. Oh Jorge, your space is always fun to come to! I will visit more often!

    Take care honey,


  5. I really do like the new format. And the Armada publication is amazing. Courtne-O posted a link to it about a month ago…how exciting to be part of something so awesome!
    P.S. I want to pretend I have an opinion re:soccer…but alas, I do not. I will now go try and form one – will get back to you on that.

  6. Diving in Soccer: Here is the thing I don’t get. If a goal tender leaps through the air to make a save and land on his head, he gets up and continues to play. If any other player gets touched in any physical way it is strecher time. What do they feed the goaltenders?

  7. Gummi Berry Juice

  8. Yeah, I must say I could not get into the hoopla of the World Cup, but I think that speaks more to my disinterest in anything sports related.

    I like the new blog “Wasted Time”.

  9. I love how anyone who ever enjoyed a bowl of spaghetti was suddently italian.

  10. i like the new format!!
    I love being surprised when i pop in, and you’ve changed the furniture around. Oh – is that a new rug?

  11. No.
    This is my actual hair.
    I know it looks like steel wool, but the right shampoo really softens it up.
