Man its cold today. Cold cold cold. And that rain! Its verging on sleet so it is. Did no one tell the weather that it is still only October? But sure we’ll cope. Somehow. Possibly by using coats, scarves and maybe even gloves. And hats. Hats might be utilized in some manner. But then again I am possibly looking on

What’s this, what’s this? A post from me that’s more than a review? What’s this, what’s this? More than just an excuse? Honestly, I don’t know what it is, but you can blame JP for it. Him and his complimentary comment. I guess flattery really will get you every where[1] Part of the reason I haven’t been blogging as much

Things aren’t really going to well for Vorenus, are they? Dreaming about his wife’s suicide/attempt to distract Vorenus from killing her son. Waking up knowing that it is all true. Becoming a “son of hades”[1] Being a general grump, although I suppose thinking that your kids are dead and knowing that you are the reason you wife is dead, not

I apologise for posting so much nothingness and links today, but dude! Samurai swords! Two men have been arrested in Castleconnel after a row in which two, maybe three samurai swords were involved.

We’ll begin with the vague; this morning, or possibly last night[1] there was an ad on the radio. This of course is not a rare occurrence. There are many radios in the world, and usually they have ads. Every 15 minutes or so seems to be standard. But, getting specific here, I’m referring to a particular ad that I heard.

And so, of course, we are all entitled to our own points of view. But[1] sometimes don’t you think it’d be easier if we all thought the same way[2] Wouldn’t it make life so much easier? Think about it. No more contentious issues such as “who should we vote for” never mind “whose god is better” because we’d all agree[3]

Do you ever watch people crossing the road and think to yourself, they deserve to be knocked down? Not killed, just bumped a little, a warning to wise up, you know. Every morning as I walk to work I see the fools, looking to check how close the traffic is before dashing out into the middle of the road. Maybe

At the start of the film Linda is pulling double shifts while Chris is out selling bone density machines, struggling to make ends meet and support their young son Christopher. Things are not going well, the bone density machine isn’t selling as well as Chris had hoped and he had invested all his money in it. They are behind on

The most important thing to remember about drunks is that drunks are far more intelligent than non-drunks. They spend a lot of time talking in pubs, unlike workaholics who concentrate on their careers and ambitions, who never develop their higher spiritual values, who never explore the insides of their head like a drunk does.

So who was it that taught pigeons to play chicken then? They can’t have come up with that nonsensical approach to life themselves can they? I mean, I know they’ve always been a bold and fearless[1] species, what with their belief that they can escape the wheels of death-buses merely by waddling out of the way rather than flapping their

If you could see me now you’d see a furrowed little brow[1] as I try to figure out people. I mean, they are just generally weird aren’t they? Yesterday Eircom cut off a whole heap of Smart customers. See eircom rent out their lines to Smart[2] only Smart haven’t paid their bill. I don’t know the exact figures, but I
