Jack Bauer DIED for YOUR sins

9 November 2005


So today we had our conferring ceremony. What fun![1] Ah, I suppose it wasn’t that bad.

Was strange, very American. We even had Marines and special men in suits with earpieces hanging around. The marines did the cutest little dance as they, whats it called, when you bring in the flag? I dunno. Anyways thats what they did, marching in place, feet stamping and guns[2] twirling. We even had the American anthem played, and then the Irish one. There was obviously one child in the audience who had been to many sporting occasions, because as Amhán Na bhFiann came to an end they shouted out with a big cheer.

Then there were the speeches. The US Ambassador to Ireland gave one, the HETAC dude gave one, yer wan from the actual American college gave one. All very international.

Plus, meant I got an extra hour in bed this morning, so all in all, a good day.

Linknotes:

  1. If you call standing around in the cold for ages waiting to get started fun, and then sitting listening to boring speeches fun.
  2. I wonder were they loaded?

    You can't go and put titles like that, Fence, that's traumatic.

    Don't worry, he got resuscitated. But that was few seasons ago. Haven't seen any of the latest one.

    Speaking of Jack Bauer, who is a character on television (she segued smoothly), how about Mark Anthony? GRRRRRRRRR. Please God let me have a naughty dream about him tonight…

    hsfargis – Who doesn't love Keifer? Mad crazy people, thats who.

    NM, Indeed. More Mark Anthony, that's what I say.

    Was watching it last night – a brief respite from my horrific day – and was struck with how well he looked in his toga in the Senate. Films about Ancient Rome usually have the fine ass men wearing soldier gear cos that's all cool and shit, but the dudes in the Senate always look crap. But MA – ye gods and little fishes, talk about eh finest politician on the planet.
    No naughty dream though. :-(

    Oh this is weird…I wrote a whole bunch of comments on your blog. But, I do not see any of them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Sally when did you write? The server company went and had a fit while upgrading over the weekend and lost a bit of stuff. If it was since then I'll have to go peer through the reams of spam and see if I can spot your comments
