Can you believe that June is here already? Do you believe that over half of the searches[1] that come to this blog[2] are Irish rugby related. Did you know that most of those were quite specific in what they were looking for, and that was Paul O’Connell and his “fear of god” speech. Oh and the Gift Grub version[3] Ah

I didn’t watch the rugby documentary[1] last night. I was watching Medium and the Heroes. And can I just say one little thing to scifi uk?

EDIT: Doh! Have only just realised now why the Jervis Centre was closed as I walked by it after leaving NM to catch her Luas. And Dossing Times has a good entry on the progress of the riots.

Memo to self: When walking down the street do not listen to Gift Grub. Laughing to yourself is the sign of a mad person.

Do not pay more attention to the birds flying overhead while walking to work than to the people around you.
