You’d think that I’d have enough of catalogues and that sorta stuff at work, wouldn’t you? But you’d be wrong. A while back I stumbled across Library Thing, but didn’t use it that often. But I’ve recently returned, and have been busy adding my books. Only I don’t have too many in Dublin, many, many more i gcontae Sligeach. So I’d less than 100 up there. I’m only adding books that I actually own. But then I spotted that a few people were adding dvds too. And I thought to myself, hmmmmm[1] and started to add my dvd collection. Only it is slightly more time-consuming, so I don’t have too many up yet. Because instead of just going to amazon and hitting the “Add to LibraryThing” widget I have to do that and then edit the info.

So that is what I spent yesterday evening doing instead of upgrading wordpress. Guess I’m going to put that off for another week, at the least, seeing as I’m going to Sligo this Friday, and have the Horse Show next Friday.

Just after I’d finished adding Essex Boys, which I still have to watch, and to finish the entry, I spotted that there was yet more war on the telly. So I turned it off, thinking, they’re all as bad as each other, the cocksuckers[2] Which got me wondering. Why are some words insults/curse words?[3]

I mean, why is cocksucker an insult[4] Is it really a bad thing for one to suck a cock? I know, I know, maybe the rooster doesn’t like it, but it’s not like it’s harming anyone?
