On the one hand, that's fantastic. On the other...

Ian Brady is finally dead. Should have been hanged 50 years ago.

Got my delivery of dried blue butterfly pea flowers. Time to try making some blue, possibly colour-changing mead. :D

I've started putting together a spreadsheet of bands playing and ranking them by listenability. I dunno why, but nicely arranged spreadsheets with colour-coding always make me happy.

btw, the mead turned dark red.

I do the same thing every year though start when the first announcement is and build it up through the year.

Got 4 colours:
Dark Green - 'Fuck Yeah'
Green - 'Nice'
Yellow - 'Meh'
Red - 'Eurgh'

Currently 54% of bands are in the top 2 categories which are the ones I'll put in effort to watch. Meh bands I watch if there's nothing better to do and Eurgh bands I actively avoid.

As soon as the stage times are announced I'll move them all onto my sheet with the timetables on with different shading depening on the band so I know what I want to see when at the fest.

Which means he'll be 'Scottish' in all the English papers, and 'British' in all the Scottish papers. :lol:

To be fair I can see how the Scottish would want to support him especially the "local boy does well" type of support.

But to me tennis isn't really a sport that is Britain (or England) against another country, unless it's a Davis Cup match or the Olympics obviously. It's more one player against another. He's representing himself and getting well paid for it.

I don't really understand the idea that you have to support someone just because he's British. There have been quite a few British sportsmen that have been very dislikeable over the years.
