One of these women is Lindsay Lohan, the other is her 14 year old sister. Four-teen.
It actually took me awhile to work out which was which or who was who even.
Time for lunch. Yay.
Bust my knee open yesterday when I fell on the way to work yesterday (I was only bleedin’ scarleh!) so the walk over to the canteen will be fun. And I smell like Germaline.
I am not a happy bunny today sorry.
It’s probably ancient and done the rounds many a-time but it’s a new one to me. Got it in a email this morning:

I had a very noice weekend actually. Slept alot yesterday which was lovely. Went to a very fancy 21st of all things on Saturday night. I thought I’d feel ancient, but despite the fact it looked like a Sweet Sixteen (gonna spread my wings…), there was a good bit of an older crowd at it (not including the mammies, daddies and auntie Marys). Drank far too many G and T’s but spent the next afternoon eating off the hangover and watching Summer Heights High. It’s fooking genius.
Here’s a clip if you’re so inclined:
And random cuteness:
and it’s Monday morning…
The Saw Doctors – N17
The Pogues – Rainy Night in Soho:
Hothouse Flowers – Don’t Go
I had gone off LOST last year for a good while. It got boring and repetive and Jack got more and more prissy and annoying. But then Goddammit, it started heating up again and I even started to fancy Jack a little again. Especially at the jaw dropping cliff hanger of an ending to series 3. Woweee.
And now it’s back. Well almost. The new series will begin on RTÉ Two on Monday 4th February, 10pm. For those of you with ‘the knowledge’ (or impatience) it’s back on ABC in the States on the 31st January with an episode called The Beginning of the End.
And it damn well better be the beginning of the end. Whilst I’ve heard it’s going to last for another three seasons, I honestly don’t think I can last that long. Or care that long even.
Ah sure I’ll give it a lash anyways.
