Happy Diwali

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 […]

Gravity was invented by Isaac Walton. It is chiefly noticeable in the Autumn, when the apples are falling off the trees

Students! Aren’t they annoying. And stupid. Perhaps I over generalise. Actually no perhaps about it, I do, I know. And I get on really well with some of our students. But in general, as a population, aren’t they stupid? And annoying? I say this because the stupid questions just keep coming. And the lack of […]

Brass monkey

Jayzis its freezing. I’m so very very cold. There is the possibility I’ve been shot and this is all the blood draining out of my body… but then again, maybe Westerns got it wrong and Kevin from Eastenders was right, with his talk of warmth and brightness in his death scene. Who knows. More importantly […]

you can’t catch me, I’m the Gingerbread man

Just an ickle, quick post. The xmas party was grand; a few people may be regretting actions but I don’t really know them so who cares ;). Traffic was a bitch, so instead of taxi-ing I just walked, it was half an hour in fairly windy weather, so the hair might have complained, but honestly, […]

Now comes the dog again

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 […]

Lord, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to hide the bodies of those people I had to kill because they pissed me off!

Shiny! I just got my special edition Serenity in the post. It had to come all the way from Amerikay, but it is shiny shiny shiny. I just gotta find time to watch it now. As you may have guessed from the lack of posting- hang on, that isn’t strictly true as I have posted […]

And I’m off

Heading back up to Sligo again this evening. The reason being, I’ve gotta collect my new laptop. A Dell Inspiron 6400. But before I go, some good news. I don’t have “the consumption” I know, I know, you’re all thinking well yes. That is good news, but not particularly newsworthy, only it is. On accounts […]

I’m the green fairy…

Well it has been longer than usual since my last post, but moving a library’ll get you offline for a spell. The movers arrived on Monday and began packing, so we all headed down to the new building to make sure we knew where everything was going. They don’t do reconfigurations you see. Only there’d […]
