Curse You, fleetfootmike!  
Poking around I have just discovered that DirecTV (the satellite TV company we use) now offers a cricket season package.

You have to install a larger dish to get the entire season, or you can get individual tours on a package-by-package basis.

I have just made arrangements to order the Ashes tour.

Now to see if I can fit in a day at Old Trafford and scam a ticket the weekend after WorldCon...

[Edit] Considering we are flying out of Manchester on Tuesday 16th August, that means I just have to figure out which day to shoot for (probably day 3? Advice, anyone?)

I suspect we'll monitor the state of the match (and the weather) from Scotland and decide whether to score a high-priced ticket for day 3 or get in line for day 4.

I really lament the timing that takes y'all on holiday, as I would have loved to be able to get to the test with you.

Did I ever tell you my theory on how Cricket is the greatest practical joke ever pulled off?

If I were to describe my mood as "chuffed", it would mean I was happy because my tiger had made his friendly-greeting noise at me. But what do you mean by it?

Re: chuffed?
About the same thing but without the tiger.

Not being British, I'm sure I can't completely embody the concept, but I've always interpreted it as pleasantly happy with the addition that it seems to usually be due to something one has some stake in, either having done something, finding out one is able to do something, or finding out about someone or something. One does not simply find oneself chuffed, I think, one becomes or is chuffed due to a pleasant or happy event or action.

But I could be "quite" wrong.
