Brilliant gig. <br>Moscow Flyer<br>Kicking King<br>Harchibald<br>Hardy Eustace<br>Star Wars III<br>That picture in the Independent of George Bush trying to open a locked door at a press conference<br>Chelsea FC<br>The return of decent music to the charts<br>The Editors album The Back Room<br>Ouija Board<br>Sargeant Cecil<br>Frank Lampard<br>Realising that the blonde fit one who used to present Blue Peter now works for Sky Sports News and wears a suit….it’s now okay to fancy the guy so I think I might. Hurrah.

    No doubt I’ll add more as they spring to mind. Who be next?

    The patron saint of lower-grade fare. A gently critical friend of point-to-pointing. Kindness is a political act.

    No civilian casualties in Falluja – that’s right, not one, according to the yanks. War is finally becoming a surrealist trip, on the Home Front.

    Britian’s Presidency of the European Union – it’s over before anyone knew it had started.

    Starting a permanent job – this is the first year I have been ‘on the cards’ since I was 20 .. 22 years ago.

    Scotland not qualifying for the world cup.

    The New Orleans flood – they prepare for 5 years for a major disaster, get a spot of rain and end up eating each other.

    Brown’s down-grading of economic growth forecast.

    The peak of US imperialism – now they’re no longer willing to charge into Iran or Latin America because they are beginning to realise that the third world actually hates them with a passion. Took them long enough to figure it out like but now I can make a start on focusing my anger on China.

    I think it’s been a pretty crap year when it comes to the major categories:

    world events<br>UK events<br>racing<br>music

    But the following stand out:

    The Ashes series<br>The Killers at live 8<br>Kicking King in the Gold Cup<br>The Killers’ version of "Ruby don’t take your love to town"

    Most significant sporting event – The Olympics coming to London

    Least significant sporting event – The Ashes Series

    Most disappointing event of the year – England qualifying for the World Cup

    2nd Most disappointing event of the year – England getting a cushy draw for the World Cup following their ridiculously easy qualification group.
