I forgot to mention yesterday that I was watching the tennis with Japanese commentary. I was following along as best I could and did recognise three words: ‘Camilla’, when the Duchess of Cornwall appeared on-screen, and ‘Lady Gaga’. It must have been an interesting discussion.
Still on tennis, big congratulations to wild-carded Sabine Lisicki who knocked out third seed Li Na yesterday. What an edge-of-your-seat thriller! Both girls can be proud of themselves, they both put up a heck of a fight and it was a privilege to watch.
In other news, our neighbour is doing some kind of redevelopment of her house. The drilling has been going on for three days now. I cannot imagine what kind of work in a domestic property requires quite such a big hole. Current theories include the construction of an escape tunnel in case the Germans come back, and/or the award of a concession by Shell.
Tom Jones – Part Two
While I was tracking down the Tom Jones tune for yesterday, I came across another stella performance by the Jones the Voice. Anyone else remember Delilah? What a voice the man has. Magnificent!
