I am totally fed up with a lot of the comments about Mary Harney. I realise that as a politician she is fair game. And as a politician who is in charge of the Health Service at a time when it is scandal after scandal after horrendous error she deserves a hell of a lot of criticism.
Locked in darkness that surrounded me like a coffin, I had nothing to distract me from my memories. Vivid recollections waited to ambush me whenever my mind wandered.
The monarchy of Ixia has recently been overthrown by Commander Ambrose and is now ruled by the Code of Behaviour. Punishments are absolute; there is no leeway or excuse that will save you if you break the rules, whether you simply didn’t wear the correct uniform or killed someone. So Yelena expects nothing but a hanging after she killed the son of a high ranking General. But she is offered a slight chance when she is given the choice of either accepting her hanging or becoming the food-taster for the Commander. She accepts the position, and so is poisoned to ensure her loyalty, she’ll need access to the antidote that only Valek, the Commander’s second-in-command can provide.
It is only Tuesday :( I wantssess it to be Thursday. Okay, okay, I’d prefer if it were Friday and the working week over, but if I was going to go that far I’d have to hope it was the 20th and I’d be on my xmas hols, but that is wishing your life away […]
I went to see Stardust again last night. Its just so awwww, dontcha think? Life however is a tad more complicated. And there are a lot more surprises than what might come out of box of chocolates, never mind what Forest Gump’s Mammy used to say. In shiny shiny news my copy of My So-Called […]
to all you Americans and associates. And Happy Thursday to the rest of you. I’m off to Sligo in a few hours. I could have got the earlier train, but probably needed those few hours to recover from last night and our ever so exciting Pub Quiz. We got a great turn out, which was […]
I came across that picture on PostSecret and is it ever true. I don’t know any of you have seen Beowulf yet, but if not, does this review not make you want to go? and I quote: Beowulf the movie, based on the epic poem of the same name, is quite probably the most heinous […]
I’ve been going through my old posts, adding tags and I’ve noticed that I’m a lot less rambly than I used to be. Most of my posts now have a reason. Some even make half sense. I’m not quite sure when this began, but really, it must be stopped. The whole situation is abominable and […]
Remember my comments on Bee Movie? Well, looks other people agree.
I owns a football club. Well I have a share in a thingy that owns a football club. Yup, that’s right, I shelled my â‚¬70ish and paid for a share in MyFootballClub and now own a teeny tiny percentage in Ebbsfleet Utd. C’mon The Fleet Title provided by GIANLUCA VIALLI
Based on the comic by Steve Niles & Ben Templesmith
I’ll admit that I was a little disappointed that when IFCO’s rating came up this was only a 16. From the trailers I was hoping for a total blood and gore fest. Still, despite not making the 18s cut there was plenty of violence and a high body count. Not to mention plenty of blood. Blood every where. And then more blood.
You never quite know what to hope for when you go to see a so-called black comedy/farce. I mean, the trailers might give you an idea of some of better moments, but you just don’t know whether the whole thing will work. Especially when the setting for the “hilarious hijinks” is a funeral. Happily, Death […]
