If you live in a soccer charged household like I do, then you’ll be immersed in World Cup fever right now. And that means you’ll be dealing with the unceasing drone of the the Vuvuzela, an instrument I’d never heard of until last week. The above video, a parody of a scene from the movie Der Untergang (there are plenty of these of YouTube for all sorts of circumstances –it’s a meme that has gained something of a cult following) raised a smile from me, largely because I find the noise a constant distraction as I try to watch the games.It’s like having a swarm of bees in your lounge room.
Busy weekend ahead as I prepare to leave for the United States on Tuesday. I’ll be presenting to Teacher-Librarians in Missouri next Thursday and then heading to the ISTE Conference in Denver where I’ll be presenting the following Wednesday. Lots to do before I get on that plane, and I have a wedding to attend tomorrow! It’ll be head down on Sunday, after my son’s soccer match -a game to be enjoyed. Haven’t sighted a Vuvuzela at one of those matches yet!
Enjoy your weekend, whatever comes your way. : )

Since you are in the US, you will probably notice that the world cup is not followed as closely as in other countries. However, in my household, soccer rules. The first game was so distracting with the noise and not really being used to watching anything but world cup or Olympic soccer, I thought there was something wrong with the television feed! In fact, it has turned some potential fans off (well, that and the fact that the US team had a goal randomly taken away from them).
