You can tell I'm not nearly enough into sports by the fact I'm happy this morning, despite the fact both England and the US lost their matches this morning. I'm happy about the fact I've had a proper morning for the first time in quite a while. I like mornings, especially when I'm up early enough that they form a significant proportion of my day. I like early sunlight, and the cool of morning on a warm day, and having a proper breakfast. It's just that most mornings I'm too lazy to be bothered getting up in time.

This morning, Ellie invited Lindsay and me over to watch the US-Germany match at her place and have breakfast, so I was up bright an early to be over there by 7:30am. Bacon, egs, toast, fruit salad, orange juice... really happy food and nice company. And it's the summer solstice today, so it's extra-appropriate that I'm awake for more of the sunshine than usual.

Anyways, as long as Brazil keeps winning, my neighborhood celebrates. At this point, I think I'll cheer on the underdogs, South Korea and Senegal. I'd love it if one of them won!
