2000 England-Portugal Quarter Finals
are actually talking about two people I enjoyed the Portugal- England
two people, who happen to be my uncle and aunt, both in their early
seventies, were having major problems with oblivion- a state of mind
when they were forgetting things instantly and constantly. Irritated
by the state of affairs, after a few 'forgets' they visited a doctor,
who told them to keep a notepad handy and jot down everything they
were supposed to remember.
the match kick-started at 12: 45 am, my uncle asked my aunt to bring
him some peanuts and asked her to write it down. She said that she'd
remember it, and hence didn't need to take notes. When Owen scored
the goal at around 12: 48 am, my uncle asked her to bring peanuts
with vinegar and requested her to write down the request. She said
she was confident that she could remember it.
passed, and we were being entertained mostly by the fabulous game
of soccer and partly by the conversations of my oldie-goldie uncle
and aunt. It was about 2:28 a.m. when Helder Postiga scored from a
Deco cross to level Portugal with England. My uncle asked for a glass
of coke along with some peanuts laced with vinegar and garnished with
onions. He pleaded with her to write it down, but my confident aunt
replied that she would remember, and that there was really no need
to write it down.
before the game went into extra time, my aunt dashed into the kitchen
and came back…(drum roll) with a cup of tea.
with a sense of achievement, she said, "I told you I wouldn't
forget!" My uncle shook his head and said "But you did…where's
the Alzheimer's disease can be very entertaining.

WEARABLE COMPUTER JACKET
'A wearable computer jacket with organic film electro-luminescent
(OEL) display' what the hell is that supposed to mean? No idea. But
the photo of the jacket is cool. So whoever's interested to know more
about the OEL can check out some of the car stereo systems under Pioneer
(apparently the same technology is used)
The super-slim iPod defines what a digital music player should be.
It's lighter than two CDs, can hold up to 10,000 songs, numerous digital
photos and even serves as a personal voice recorder. And with a price
tag of $299, it's more than what you can possibly ask for. You can
also check out the smaller (and less powerful) version of the iPod
the iPod mini that comes in 5 colours and costs around $250.
NEW 'YOUR CONCEPT CAR' (YCC)
'If the Calendar Girls were making cars, this is what they would look
like.' Yep. That's the line that caught my attention. Apparently the
car has been specifically designed for female drivers to provide them
with maximum comfort. Although Volvo will never actually take this
car into production, it's satisfying to know what the future has in
