#TBT History of Women in Football

European football resumes today–Portugal vs. Poland.

But not until 12:30.

So, to kill time (and to avoid taking a summer snooze and risk missing the match *yawn*), I spent some time idly looking at sites and articles about the history of football–in particular, women in football. (soccer)

Food for…Football!

From Trainspotting:

Gail, Lizzie: What are you two talking about?
Spud, Tommy: Football! What are you talking about?
Gail, Lizzie: Shopping!


It’s been a very strange, dreamy week in the Chaos Realm. A fellow blogger is going to see The Cure in concert, and it’s been bringing up a lot of memories (bloody nostalgia LOL) from my experiences when I saw The Cure (hope your experience is just as magical and wonderful, This Nerd’s Life).

Maybe I’ve just been exploring too many alternate dimensions while I sleep…having very intense dreams. Or something else is afoot.

So, another shortcut blog after I skipped a few.

I’ve been watching (European) football while I (pretend to) write. It’s been exciting so far! Can’t wait until it resumes on Saturday.

I stumbled across this article on the UEFA website while trying to come up with an idea for this week’s food blog.

“What do Europe’s football fans eat?”


“Football Food around the World”

If gourmet eats are your thing:




Goodbye for now. Off to wander amazing realms.
