I was chuffed to bits that Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová won the Oscar for best song. Even my Dad was chuffed, he’s a sucker for a nice melody.

Glen chats about his win on RTÉ.ie

EDIT:Rick O’Shea has a clip of Glen and Marketa accepting their award and a cool moment from John Stewart. Yayness.

I’m only delira for Juno writer Diablo Cody as well. I wish it had won best picture, but I haven’t seen No Country For Old Men yet so maybe that’s an unfair wish.

Loved Diablo’s outfit:

Aaaand did anyone see/hear the Ballad of Ronnie Drew last night on the Late Late? He’s a ledge but I kinda wish they’d come up with a better song for him….

Jeff Fahey Frank Lost


Yes, It looks like I fancy Santa Claus, but he’s  MUCH better looking in Lost. It’s the eyes I tells ya.

I’ve been looking back at pictures of him when he was younger, and it’s not so good. But now, yes please!

And for anyone interested, here’s some more sneaky peeks at next week’s LOST …

I’m going to Marios in Ranelagh tonight, my favourite restaurant EVAR. I’m so easily pleased, yay!

I was supposed to go on Sunday evening, but got stuck in the harbour car park in Howth because we decided to leave when the whole of Dublin had also made the same decision. I love love love Howth though, it’s just gorgeous.  I even fell in love with the seals which I wasn’t expecting to see at all. I told you I’m easily pleased.

Plus I heard this song on the radio this morning and I didn’t expect to like it but I do:

tee hee

Ahhh what a lovely lovely weekend.

 Friday night was spent drinking copious amounts of white wine and west coast cooler (seriously, don’t knock it ’til you’ve tried it – it’s classy…) watching Intermission, Superbad and Honey (bad baaaaad film but Jessica Alba is smokin’!).

On Saturday, I had a lovely lie in, watched CSI and then went to the cinema to see….. Juno! Yay, yay, yay! What a wonderful, sweet, funny, heartwarming piece of cinema. I was so afraid that it wouldn’t live up to the hype and I’d be disappointed like so many times I’ve been to the cinema recently. But – happy days – I loved it.  It took me about 15 minutes to get used to Juno’s quirky jokes and humour but once the film settles down into it’s groove, I fell in love with Juno and all of her surrounding cast. Just lovely. And I bawled like a baby at the end but I think I was the only one in the cinema in that state – I’m too sensitive.

On Sunday me and the fella went out to Clontarf for the first time in years. It’s absolutely gorgeous out there. We nearly made it to Howth but ‘someone’s’ hangover kicked in *cough-not me-cough*.

After a bit we did a u-turn and headed for Dun Laoighaire just in time for the chipper to open. Wrapped up in about twenty layers of jumpers, coats and hats; we strolled up the pier scoffing on chips and battered sausages. Perfeck.
