I’m laughing at clouds

Well after bringing up the depressing headlines and news stories concerning the middle east, I left work this evening and just as I left the building it started to rain. First time I’ve had to walk in the rain for well...

Resistance is futile!

Do you remember Eerie Indiana? Do you? With the kids being preserved in tubberware lunchboxes? And the ability to understand the canine plot to take over the world cause of dental-ware? I loved that show. And I’m really hoping that my...

When you are a child, and you’re poor, and you live next to other people who are poor, you never think of yourself as being poor.

Around a month ago I read an entry on Omaniblog about this book, up until then I hadn’t even known that George Hook had a book out. But that post caught my attention. George Hook is probably best known in Ireland for his rugby punditry. Together with Brent Pope and Tom McGurk, he analyses rugby for RTE in an entertaining, honest, blunt manner. He also has a radio show, but I’m not big on the radio so haven’t heard him enough to comment on that. In many ways I suppose he is the Eamonn Dunphy of the rugby world.

But I know him primarily from his rugby comments, and his constant promises that Munster will lose, and that the likes of Stringer shouldn’t be playing. I disagree with him, but am well aware that he is very knowledgeable about the game. And in an entertaining way.

That’s not even a plot dir. by

Last episode of season 2 of Lost was on last night. And can I just say that this has to be the most pointless telly watching I have ever done. I don’t like the characters. Even Charlie is annoying at this...

Grrr arrgh

I had intended to write a really witty and entertaining post on the difference between the “Spray More, Get More” ad campaign from Lynx[1] and the Impulse Tease[2] ad. Cause the difference seems to suggest that all men want is to...

Superman Returns dir. by

Superman has never really been a superhero that I was a fan of. Sure, he is faster than a speeding bullet and has saved the world on numerous times, but I’ve just never had a grá for him. So I wasn’t...
