Ever build up something big in your head, only for it to fall flat on it's face and not be as awesome as you hoped?
For a few weeks now I've been eyeing off the yellow Gold Perino Sweet Snacking Tomatoes at Coles. They're 50c more expensive then the red ones (which I LOVE) and I've been wondering just how good they are. So I bit the bullet tonight and grabbed a punnet.
They're crap. Flavourless crap. They have none of the tang or aftertaste of the red ones, instead being bland and boring. Thankfully I also got a punnet of the red ones, and right now there's a conga line forming in my mouth. YUM.
Sonic '06 was another disaster. I bought it for my ex (because I am a Sonic nutter) and it took me forever to get past the first level - particularly annoying as every time I started the game again I had to go through the opening cutscene and that stupid first mission again. Sonic '06 was meant to be awesome, dammit!
Don't get me started on the expectations of my footy team. Would it REALLY be that difficult to win every game in the season by 100+ points? Honestly...
Thankfully it doesn't always happen that way, there was that weekend a year ago I swore would be the best ever and it was. There was my Veloster, Tenny, and she's more awesome than I expected her to be. There was my first NRL game too, Broncos v Rabbitohs, and that was far more exciting than I thought it would be (I'm actually looking forward to the Broncos v Bulldogs game, provided my little bro still wants to come).
Leigh Matthews once said "Nothing is as bad or as good as it seems" or something like that. Not everything is meant to go our way, but that's what keeps things interesting I guess. I still had my cherry tomatoes in the end!
