ARgh, damn webpage where my picture came from is GONE, so that’s the end of my LJ layout. Time to get a new one. Someone teach me how to do something cool. Please? I’ll love you forever.
Day one of Olympics and they’re already pissing me off. Well, not the olympics, but the attitude of everyone. Nearly everything I’ve heard people say about it today has been comparing it to Sydney. And often coming to the conclusion that either Sydney was better, or Athens ripped all their ideas off Sydney. Why can’t everyone get over themselves?
I had an awful day at netball. My little team got thrashed and my big team played REALLY terribly, which is bad because semis are next week. And to top it off, I had to umpire. And to top it off, I had to umpire people from Burwood girls, who I played last year. And to top it off, I was embarrassingly crap because I haven’t umpired for about 4 years, and I feel really stupid. But then I got money for it. Yay, $20 richer!
I fell over and I bled. And I got scratched. My hands are still stinging, even though they didn’t bleed much. It’s so annoying. I hate grazes, and all that dry-pointy-stinging dead skin they leave. My scratches are on my wrist. They will add to my netball scars (mostly from games against Balmain High) that make me look like I don’t know how to commit suicide.
Stupid netball. I realised today how ridiculous netball-culture is. Nearly every player between 14 and 18 is exactly what I do not want to be. They bring their boyfriends, I assume because they think their boyfriends will like to watch them play in short skirts. But I think that the guys watch everyone play in short skirts, girlfriend or not. And all netball boyfriends look exactly the same.
The girls who wear their netball uniforms all morning, even though they don’t play until 3:00, so they can strut around showing lots of leg. They style their hair for games. And wear make up. It’s sport!! ARGH!
Stupid stupid stupid.
Of course I’m generalising, not everyone’s like that, just most of them. Even so, to have have a netball association of twits is very scary.
Yeah, netball rant.
