I Was a Victim of the 2002 World Cup! …

Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2002 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

I Was a Victim of the 2002 World Cup! Ordinarily I don't mind my flatmates cheering and yelling in the next room over while watching soccer matches at 4 am. I wear earplugs. No big deal.

The big deal is when your roommate sets an alarm to get up at 4 am to watch an important match, and then forgets to turn it off before she leaves for the weekend.
