Green Knowe series #1 Usually Toseland spends the holidays in boarding school, his father and stepmother are in Burma, but on this occasion he is off to spend Christmas with his great-grandmother. He has never met her before, and understandably, is a little nervous about heading off all by himself. He is seven years old […]
A little late, perhaps, but it must mean something that I’ve gone to the huge effort of typing that post title? No? I’ve just taken down all the xmas decorations, the place is looking a little bare now, soon I shall polish off the end of the xmas chocolate, maybe tidy the place, and then […]
Honestly Xmas really does come earlier and earlier every year. Why I continue to complain is beyond me.
How did you all get on over the holidays? I say that as though my holidays were over, but that isn’t so, oh no, cause I am off work until the 12th of Jan. Mwahaha. I laugh at all you people back at work this Monday. For those of you who have already returned… well […]
I didn’t like this film. Not at all. Well, maybe that is a slight lie, cause bits of it were funny, and I did laugh. And some scenes worked well. But overall I really did not like this film. The main reason is that it just tries to hard to sell us this message that […]
*Yawn* and again. I’s tired today. Worked two 12 hour days as my minion was on his deathbed. Which would’ve been grand only I sorta wanted to go shopping and get some bits’n’bobs for the xmas partah tomorrow. Still, I’ll make do. I’ve taken to walking down the middle of O’Connell St on my way […]
Feels like its been ages since I wrote anything for this thingymeblog. And this isn’t much of an entry either, just a quick note to say that I’m off home tomorrow, not sure when I’ll be online after Christmas, d’internet is far to slow in Sligo to make it likely that I’ll be posting from […]
Yeah yeah, tá fhíos agam gur dúirt mé that I wouldn’t be talking about christmas again for a while, ach then I spotted this great pic over at the Drawn blog and couldn’t resist. It is from Fleet Street Scandal if you wanna go take a look.
I’m a little tired this morning, went out for one drink last night and, as is so usual in these cases, had slightly more than one. Wasn’t terribly late, got home round half one I think, but then was chatting, as you do, to a couple of girls and so did not go to bed at my usual sensible time of somewhere around half 11.
Still, I made it into work and can take any grumpiness out on talking students, so it’s all good.
What isn’t so good is that this week is [fx: big-booming-trailer-type-voice] Budget Week. And while this is obviously important and will impact on my life can I just say now that I don’t care. And I won’t be reading the pages and pages and pages of newspapers devoted to this part of Fianna Fáil’s election campaign. Instead I think I’ll go do the lotto. After all it is tax free, isn’t it?[cue another random point] Did anyone else catch any of this year’s Toy Show? And if so, is it just me, or is Pat getting even worse at the job? They should fly someone like Jonathan Ross in to do it, he likes toys and gadgets, and while some of his big-breast comments wouldn’t be appropriate for the wains watching, but who cares. He’d be great at showing off pooing dolls and talking robots and whatnot. Pat Kenny on the other hand, not so much with the charisma or enthusiasm or ability to be a human.
And yes, I did catch Dylan Moran on Jonathan’s show over the weekend H. I was actually watching it when your text arrived. And the phone was in d’other seomra and I didn’t get it til I went to bed, and then wasn’t arsed replying cause I figured it was too late. But that is all beside the point. TÃ¡ an agallamh available on You tube and cause I like to make things easy for the people who come here it is embedded under the cut.
Did you know that it is less than a month till xmas? Did ya? That’s still a long time though, so you won’t find me adding to the “BUY NOW” mentality that seems to be swarming all over the place. Though if you are looking for amber lights for your tree, well I’m afraid they’ve […]
Hola peoples, how was everyone’s christmas, I’m just back up in Dublin from Sligeach, had a very nice time, we even had snow so we did. Not on christmas day itself, but yesterday. I’ll stick a few photos on flickr later on. I really should be unpacking, but I flicked on the telly when I […]
A week and a half to christmas, and work is pretty much over. Oh I still have to be here for another week, but there isn’t really all that much to be done. I’m thinking of really making work for myself and deshelving all the books so I can clean and sort the shelves. See, […]
I guess that old saying about a red sky in the morning was proved correct today. We had a lovely sunrise today, but then it pissed down out of the heavens. And of course because I had postponed finding out exactly where the xmas party is on tomorrow I had to do it today. Which […]
