swingarm still not back from powdercoater's so trying to bash on with the build, dropped a right bollock, roughed out rear brake mounting bracket then realised that it won't fit, need to dog-leg it to fit, two nights work wasted, i'm chilled though now, i was starting to get pissed off with all the delays and problems with the build but, i've been this way before, no rush, it's got to be right, get back to reality, can't afford to go racing so might as well make a proper job.

night matches, mid-week, can't have a beer like a saturday, the whole build up to the match, saturday, walk the dogs, big breakfast, shower and shave, iron your gear, got to look sharp, bus into derby at twenty to one, into the leaper for a couple, walk down to the vic and meet the lads, the crack is flowing, piss-taking, have a chat with the oppositions fan's, [it's straight across the from the train station so is the first port of call for away fan's], walk to pride park, buzzing, night matches are just a rush, started work at six, rushed home, rushed to take the dog's, rushed to get a shower, rushed to drive to five lamps, rushed to walk to the ground, we play 'boro tonight, they must have come in a taxi, 200 away fan's at the most, they go one-nil up, we pull two goals back to go ahead, 91 minutes in, everyone whistling when our left back jay mcevely wrestles one of their players to the ground, free kick to them, lovely ball in, leroy lita to head in for a point for them, bastard, we needed the three points, walking back to the car we get the news that the filth have been beaten by the mighty barnsley, suddenly the point doesn't seem too bad....

and a bag of chips on the way home, only one mind, loads of salt, you have to share them otherwise they don't taste the same.
