Tá athas an domhan orm an chorn seo a glachadh*

So I was telling Kelly about[1] my lying dog[2] and I thought I might as well share his fibs.

He gets fed twice a day, morning and evening, and he is a creature of habit. If it is a minute past five he’ll let you know that he should’ve been fed by now. Unless of course it is raining outside, or a little windy, in which case you really should bring his bowl inside. Bloody soft lump of a mutt that he is.

And it doesn’t help that we are all spoiling him lately. On account of his injured back. We’ve been being nice to him and letting him come into the kitchen[3] and letting him have little treats[4] so he is utterly convinced that he can do no wrong at the moment.

Including walking in front of de brudders when they were experimenting with a shot-putt, no wonder the mutt has a bad back[5]

Hmm, I was supposed to be revealing his fibbing ways, and his increasing response of “I’m so terribly sorry, but I simply didn’t hear you when you screamed my name. Now where’s my Markie?” But look, I’ll cunningly disguise my lack of details by showing you Sean Óg:

* Irish may be incorrect. Vidjo borrowed from slipperyorangeballco


  1. in one of the comment sections, I can’t do all the work for you, you’ll have to find it yourself
  2. don’t believe a word a dog tells you, honestly, they lie
  3. he is supposed to be confined to the front room and the utility room but chance’d be a fine thing
  4. just not the ones we are keeping for the stray cat
  5. – don’t worry, it landed a whole foot away from him and he was quite safe. honest

    What a lying son of a bitch.

    Of course, I meant your doggy. I don't know about that Sean Og person. Hi, Fency.

    I'm sorry, I was completely distracted by the video of Sean Og (and my happy memories of that lovely day last year). Dog? What dog?

    Talking of rugby… (or not? no idea. And who is Sean Óg?) – Munster. I mean I like them a lot and all, but Bourgoin? Now that's pushing it a bit.

  4. Fence says:

    Hi Kells. He is, I totally agree, but sure we wouldn't have him any other way :)

    My ploy worked then Ann. Excellent.

    Well Seán Óg (O'hAilpín to give him his surname) is from Munster. And probably would be good at rugby, he has a Fijian background, and played rugby league when in Australia (don't you just love the power of d'internet), but that isn't his sport. He is the Cork hurling captain.
    But as you were speaking of rugby can I just say "mwahahaha" Munster will go all the way again. Maybe. hopefully (don't want to jinx them) but I thought that Bourgoin put up a much better performance than in other matches. Was it against Leinster that they totally folded and Leinster put away over a hundred points?

  5. anne says:

    "Oh, I'm sorry, did my back hurt your knife???"
    I can't find any trace of that alleged thrashing anyway.

  6. fence says:

    Sorry, my bad. It wasn't 100 points, only 92. <a>see here. scrollage involved, but that was back in 2004

  7. anne says:

    You're evil. And strangely, the link lights up but doesn't work. I think your comment thingy agrees with me.

  8. Fence says:

    Muther-frakken gorram linakage!

    But how can I be evil when I post lovely picture of Ronan all for you, huh?

    Anyways, on the 10th of Dec 2004 Bourgoin did travel to Ireland and play Leinster and lose, 92-17. http://www.irishrugby.ie/fixturesresultslist.jsp?…

    Two years ago… They were young, they were inexperienced… Stéphane Glas wasn't playing with them anymore…

  10. Fence says:

    Two years means it still happened :)

  11. Fence says:

    *fx: whiney voice* but I'm boooooored. I have to entertain myself somehow. It's Friday afternoon, I can't work. I have to amuse myself/be amused somehow.

  12. sally says:

    Hey! Have you tried to eat your dinner while it's windy and raining around you???

  13. Fence says:

    Yes. Does it count if I had a house around me?
