    I had internet so I listened to Aggers and also managed to see a bit of the action, although it was quite sporadic getting that to work. I just don't have TV, which is really annoying.

    Managed to catch the morning and tea sessions. Fell asleep for a solid three hours in between. Handily I have every morning-after off for the rest of this test so can freely screw around with my sleeping habits completely.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    I've had approx 3hrs sleep at best in the last 37 and am reduced to speaking small words very slowly amidst very poor sentences. I am like a walking copy of the Daily Mirror with fewer tits.

    Plan for the next three hours is finish boarding duty ASAP before three hours' shut-eye ahead of the morning session. I can then get 40 mins at lunch and 20 mins at tea before getting stuck in from 5am onward with a shower 7.30ish. Only teaching 9.30-10.40 tomorrow, followed by sitting through a musical performance about some ecofriendly nonsense that is guaranteed to send me out like a light. Must ensure I sit next to a child who understands the Ashes and will nudge me firmly in the ribs BEFORE I start to snore.

    On the plus side, I'm getting shedloads of marking done.

    Can't say I was particularly impressed by the Breakfast Sub. It's McDonalds breakfast all the way for me.

    How England perform in the first hour will dictate how long I stay up tonight. If they have a good first hour I'll stick it out as long as I can and more than likely skip my lecture in the morning; if they fail to take a wicket or are bowling pies I'm off to bed.

    Don't remember ever seeing threads like this when Australia tour England - obviously the aussie posters on this forum are a bunch of work shy bums who don't have to worry about getting up in the morning

    Rain meant it was McDonalds again for me today as Subway was not open, got to vary it up tomorow though.

    Work tomorow, if anyone buys tickets for the midnight Harry Potter that finishes at 2.50 I am going to throw Nacho cheese in their face.

    Going to miss Jimi taking the last 5 wickets in the first hour no matter what though.

    I didn't have a car windscreen I could slam my face through, so I smashed it through a second-storey window instead.
    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.

    I had a huge bowl of porridge. Might try McDonalds' Festive Burger at lunchtime. Having a few beers tonight so there will be no funny sleep patterns, just a case of surviving as long as I can tonight.
