Oops, I did it again

After all my talk about missed opportunities and knowing the events happening around Melbourne, I totally missed out on David Beckham coming to Sydney gah gah gah

David Beckham says he is been surprised by the reaction to his trip to Australia.

The former Manchester United and Real Madrid player is in Sydney for an exhibition match with his team LA Galaxy.

The game at Sydney’s Olympic stadium will be played in front of a sell-out crowd of 80,000.

LIKE countless millions of others, soccer star David Beckham got off a 22-hour flight from London to Sydney worn out, red-eyed and in trakkie daks.

Having your own Lear jet apparently does not shield you entirely from the ghastly effects of circling half the globe in a single bound.

Beckham managed to avoid some of the paparazzi at Sydney airport when a fake “Posh” lured the cameras in the wrong direction while he made good his escape.

However there was no avoiding the glare at his first Australian press conference, where 16 television cameras followed his every eye-rub and neck-stretch, and the flashguns popped like fireworks every time his mouth creased into that shy smile.

Like anyone else who’s flown that far, he looked like he wanted nothing more than a cup of tea and a good lie down.

Crap. And I was having such a lovely day! Why did I have to miss Becks?! Gaddamit! *shakes fist*

Le sigh. I guess it just wasn’t meant to be. Oh well, I just have to keep on reminding myself I have an awesome birthday gift waiting to be redeemed. It’s not as cool as seeing David Beckham, but awesome, nonetheless. Yep, keep on telling yourself that Nina… Awesome gift…awesome gift… awesome gift… *cries*

    I think David and Victoria are such a gorgeous couple, but everybody have to agree that their behavior is not a good example for their kids nor anybody else. Have you seen this news reporting that David was accused for snubbing child cancer survivors? http://www.weshow.com/us/p/24811/david_beckham_accused_of_snub_kids_with_cancer He defends himself saying that he haven’t seen them… I don’t know… what do you think?

    Hi Michael! Well, I can believe that he missed seeing them, as he’s probably surrounded by security people and I would guess several members of the media, all clamoring for attention. He did say he’s going to make it up to them by dropping by their place sometime during his visit.

    Oh, look! A “real” comment, and not some automated “Check it out! We stumbled on a great blog post here….”

    Sorry, Niñs, but really, the pingbacks are becoming a bit much, aren’t they?

    Anyway… HAPPY BIRTHDAY (in a day or two, anyway)!! So what’s this “awesome birthday gift” you’re waiting for?

    I just received an “awesome birthday gift” too… a gift certificate to Amazon.com with express instructions from the giver to use it for a Gorillapod! So I, too, am waiting on an awesome gift… which based on the estimated shipping date should arrive pretty close to my real birthday!

    Again, Happy Birthday from one Sagittarius to another!

    Dyanie: Haha, di pa naman masyado! Actually, tinatamad na ko lumabas kasi umiinit na masyado minsan. Btw, did you get the email? Cebu Pac piso promo starting tomorrow!

    David: I know! It’s getting so bad, I deleted about 30 or so comments. Gorillapod is love! Although I am hardly using it lately… <_< As for my awesome birthday gift... heh, just wait for it! 😛
