Mandatory blog about Ashes Fever.

Symptoms include:
  • Frantically pressing 'F5' on the keyboard whenever on Cricinfo for news of injuries.
  • Dreaming about Simon Katich's steely gaze of determination.
  • Stocking up on energy drinks as plans to become nocturnal come into full force.
  • Waking up in a sweat due to remembering that Adelaide game in 2006/07.
  • Dreaming that Ravi Bopara made it into the England squad.
  • Waking up in a sweat realising that Tim Bresnan is in the England squad.
  • Having nightmares about Kevin Pietersen's moustache.
  • Being sad enough to type in "Has anyone called Xavier ever played Test cricket before?" then slapping your head as Xavier Marshall comes up.
  • Trying to dig out the voodoo doll of Mike Hussey from the 2006/07 series, and then realising you might not need it.
  • Trying not to get your hopes up about England's chances.
  • Hoping that the first ball of the Ashes series in Australia isn't as shit as the last one. 
 I've got it.

I hope you have too.

That is all.
