World Cup

I will probably die a terrible death for posting this but it was pretty funny that there was an article about it....

10 things to do while your spouse obsesses over the world cup

Survival Tip #1: Hit the gym. Your spouse has been watching sweaty dudes clobber each other for a ball all day — so what better way to get his or her attention than to come home looking the perfect mix of hot and gritty?

Survival Tip #2: Stack up on your summer reads. Spend an afternoon in the park getting lost in a book (... or two!). Suggested reading: Bend It Like Beckham (just kidding!).

Survival Tip #3: Dust off those cookbooks. You know what's silly and fun at the same time? Cooking meals that correspond to the games (like pasta when Italy's playing or curry when India takes the field).

Survival Tip #4: Wash your car. It'll give you an excuse to get out of the house — and away from the sound of your spouse yelling "Bad call!" at the TV. Besides, a little sunshine will do you some good. And your windows are dirty.

Survival Tip #5: Shop. If there was ever a time to snag a few "extra" items at the store, it's now. What else are you going to do?

Survival Tip #6:Make the basement (or spare room) into your own personal lair. Stake your claim on the coveted space and turn into your own personal home office. (You snooze, you lose, World Cup Maniac!)

Survival Tip #7:Sign up for classes in something that interests you. By the time your spouse is done watching the World Cup, you could be an expert salsa dancer/pottery painter/French speaker/Frisbee thrower ... (okay, you get the idea).

Survival Tip #8: Revamp your MP3 playlist. Finally, you can shop for songs you like without your spouse standing over your shoulder asking, "Really? You're paying to hear Lady Gaga?"

Survival Tip #9: Make travel plans. What could be more in the spirit of the World Cup than planning a trip to a country you've always wanted to visit? Just, you know, be sure to invite your spouse.

Survival Tip #10: Start scheduling your post-World Cup TV schedule — and DVR-ing all of your favorite shows. Remember, what goes around comes around!

In all fairness it's not the bad - most games are on in the morning and truth be told I get sucked into everything. So although I am not a fanatic like my husband (who woke up at 5:30 to watch a game) I will watch them with him sometimes and today I did check to see if USA won the match. So my dear Woody (if he reads this, he always reads the ones I could get in trouble for) I am not complaining about your world cup fascination, cheer them on baby!!! And while you do I have some plans for me :)
