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 over a month. And I actually missed. Didn’t even wait under cover at the […]

TV has been a tad on the depressing side recently. And I don’t mean the boring-ness of Lost, but actual real life programmes. Not the “moan at the stupidity of reality-tv” but the real stories that have been floating about. First there was the BBC’s Execution of a teenage girl, about a 16 year old […]

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 memory isn’t lying to me[1] cause I’ve just gone and bought it. But while […]

Time Added On

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.

Mine will be under the cut

The Premiership hasn’t quite started up yet, but you can still pick a team over at theFantasy Permiership. And if you do, you may as well join my league, by entering the following code: 28597-30580
This year I will play throughout the season. I will. Not like last year when I sorta got a little disinterested half way through.

Also I haven’t forgotten about LunaNina and our weekly associations game, but the site is down, so we can’t play along. Not yet anyway.

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 be sexified. While all women want is to be chased, but not caught. Cause […]

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest

Took me long enough, but I finally managed to catch POTC2, and despite loving the first one I have to say that this just isn’t that great. Yes it has wonderful bits of Jack Sparrow-ness, but overall it is too long and too silly to really entertain. Of course it does suffer because the story […]

No present like time

ISBN: 0575077980 – Infinity Plus review January 2020 On this soft night I followed the Moren River valley, flying back to the Castle, hearing the chimes of clock towers in the Plainslands villages as I passed high above. I really enjoyed the first in this ‘verse, The Year of Our War, and while I didn’t […]
