Idiot new boy

As was kindly pointed out by Mr. Fox (aka Mr. Fowler) on my recent trip to the UK, today I was idiot new boy.  Fortunately, the day passed without major incident, mainly as I was surrounded by many other idiot new boys and girls in a training session.

It was thoroughly enjoyable, although three months’ unemployment meant that it probably took more out of me than it should.  I’ll struggle to stay awake for the entirety of tonight’s Broncos vs. Bengals match, kicking off at 9pm EST.

Will be travelling to Boston on Sunday for a week’s induction.  There is the chance that Sunday will see the deciding game of the World Series at Fenway Park, which would be fun to be around for, although the Red Sox’ dominant start (2-0 after two home games) suggests that it might all be over before then.  (BTW, that sentence raised an issue that I thought of a while ago: how should you apostrophise plural words ending in X.  Off the top of my head, this is the only such word.  I like to think that x’ is acceptable.)
