I am amused by communications technology. My sister texted me from France to keep me updated on the scoreline for the England – Sweden game last night. (I didn't dare to venture out last night, much less to find a bar where I could watch the game.)

But I do admit (lethargic_man, avert your eyes now) to feeling some degree of pleasure that England have acquitted themselves tolerably.
