There is this meme doing some of the rounds of the Irish Blog’verse, asking are you an Irish conservative? I’m not doing it cause its all about yes no questions and I don’t do yes no questions. Well, I do when they are the sort that ask do you do yes no questions, and i answer no. But you get the general idea.
I especially don’t answer closed question when they aren’t in fact closed but wide open to interpretation. Are taxes too high for instance. Too high for what? Which taxes? See my confusion set in?
So I’m not joining in the fun. Sides I know what I am; A Cheese-Eating Surrender Monkey! Erm. No, that’s not it… Oh yes, a liberal, authoritarian, left-leaning, conservative, cherry-picker. See. Easy.
On to the non-political part of today’s post ;)
Today at lunch I went for a walk. You’d think I’d have gone sometime last week. You know, when it wasn’t raining. But no, almost every other day I just do the 10/15 minute walk to wherever I’m eating and back again. But today, with the rain, I decided it’d be a good day to take a random wander in the opposite direction to the way I always go. I don’t know why.
Still, it is nicer to walk in the park when its raining, less people out enjoying the weather you see. And it isn’t like it was lashing, just a soft rain so I didn’t get soaked or anything.
Maybe I was just in good humour cause Veronica Mars has been greenlighted for a thrid season. Or because Paul O’Connell looks like being fit. Come on, its only a few days to go, you didn’t really expect me to say nothing about the rugby now did you? I was going to link to this morning’s Gift Grub, but for some reason whenever I upload my copied version it comes back with a file error. So I’ll have to wait till after work and see what I can do from home. It was Daniel O’Donnell and Ronan Keating singing a Munster inspired song all about Daniel O’Connell and Donncha O’Dulaing. 
I’ll leave you with a letter stolen from today’s Irish Times:
Madam, – Fine Gael, reverting to its Civil War roots, has decided that the teaching of Irish should no longer be “compulsory”.
Yet party leader Enda Kenny has suffered compulsory English throughout his school years (13 years or so), and still offends against its grammar and syntax.
Perhaps it is time for us to admit that the teaching of English (and of mathematics, if many third-level science lecturers are to be believed) has also failed, and to declare that all currently “compulsory” subjects will in future be optional. – Yours, etc,
