ETA: pix added *disclaimer* Peoples, by reading this post you all agree to not prosecute and never breathe a word to The Law. It seems I am an accessory to a crime. Not just any crime, but murder!

I’m away at the moment. But before I went I did a book quiz. Turns out I’m a gorram genius book You’re Catch-22! by Joseph Heller Incredibly witty and funny, you have a taste for irony in all that you see. It seems that life has put you in perpetually untenable situations, and your sense […]
So you might be aware that I recently bought Declan O’Rourke’s album Since Kyabram, and there is one song in particular that I really like. It is called Marrying the Sea. And I’m actually really tempted to just leave it on repeat the whole way home to Sligo. It is an acapella folk-type of song […]
So I’ve not been as verbose as usual for two reasons. Issue the first: work. Now that we’ve got the catalogue & circulation up and running there is a lot of stuff to do. And it is time-consuming, kinda boring stuff. But it has to be done, and hopefully before the students come back in […]
ISBN: 0349114471 This novel may possibly have had a greater impact on me if I knew anything about the life and times of Samuel Johnson apart from the fact that he wrote a dictionary, and of course that the Life of Samuel Johnson was written by Boswell. But I’ve never read it, and so am […]

Do you know whats a lovely sight to greet your eyes as you leave your abode upon a Sunday afternoon? Three fellas pissing against the courthouse. Not even 5 o’clock on a Sunday. Not even dark. So clearly visible. And okay, it wasn’t the actual courthouse they were watering, it was the barriers around it […]
Based on a true story The Exorcism of Emily Rose deals with the death of Emily Rose. Doctors said she was suffering from psychotic-epilepsy, her priest said it was possession. And because of Father Moore’s role in Emily’s refusal to take her medication, and her lack of medical attention he is put on trial for […]
In other news, NM and I headed to Belfast yesterday to see copper-copper. Haven’t seen her in ages so was good to catch up. First time in Belfast, or at least I don’t remember being there before although we could have gone as kids, I did have family living in the north. Still do, I […]
