Belly ache

This weekend: I slept, a lot. I drank, a fair bit. And I ate ’til my belly could take no more. Attractive ey? It’s not my fault though – the local Chinese’s fillet of beef with black bean sauce and mushrooms is just too good to waste. It’s always a delicious struggle to eat it all as they usually give very generous bucket sized portions of the dish. I think they like me.

And so now it’s Monday again and the chance to make a fresh start (number 417) which means the diet (yawn) starts yet again. With a bag of cheese and onion Tayto. Ahem.

I have literally zero willpower. Can you buy it somewhere? How great would it be if it came in handy tablet form that I could pop every morning with my tea and toast. And for those really struggling, like me, if it came with maybe an extra dose of motivation too. With added Vitamin C. I’m telling you, who ever invents that would probably be the richest fecker in the whole world.

If only.

*When writing this post, I google imaged ‘belly’ to see what came up. The first one is not what I was expecting and probably NSFW. Just so ya know*

Did you know that 107% of workers would perform 16 times better if they had every second Monday off? It’s true!

It’s Friday. Oh my God!

Don’t get me wrong, I love my job to bits but I also love my bed. A lot.  And the thoughts of that wonderful lie in tomorrow snuggled up in my cosy duvet, watching mindless tv and munching on  hot buttered toast and tea – pure bliss. I’ve been getting up verrrry early the last few Saturdays to practice driving with the Da. Saturday mornings are great for getting practice at those dreaded junctions and round abouts as most people are cosied up in their leabas blissfully unaware of the lethal weapon taking to the roads. 

But lately, I seemed to have improved a fair bit at the ould driving. The clutch is no longer public enemy number 1 and I can approach a red light and take off without cursing like a sailor (my poor father). 

And so tomorrow morning, I think I owe to it myself, and my saint of a Dad, to bury myself in the bed for a few hours and leave the sleepy Saturday drivers to their business. Hurrah.

Just got this in an email –

“Bid on a dinner date with Stephen!”


First things first, this is for the ladies only;

My friend and I had a bet – how most things start among friends…..the loser had to take a girl out to a restaurant of his choice (actual restaurant), the catch was that it had to be a girl he had never met before.

So, as you may have guessed, I (with his permission) have put his picture up and am now going to accept bids for a date with Stephen;

Basically girls, this entitles you to a free meal with Stephen, this is not a date, unless of course the two of you decide that! (none of my business)

About Stephen,

26 year old Male, living in South County Dublin, originally from Offaly. He is doing very well for himself. He is a nice guy, likes the finer things in life, walks on the beach, quiet night in with a good movie, nice meal etc…..

However, he is a mans man also, likes to mix it up with the odd session in town and is an avid sports man. Used to be a rugby player, currently plays soccer and loves most sports!

He is also quite smart, with a degree from on of our fine Dublin based academic institutions.

If the bidding exceeds €10, the money will go to a charity of the winners choice!!

Thank you.

This auction will end in 10 days.

Also Island of Ireland only: Buyer must be prepared to travel to Dublin if successful.”


To view/bid on the lovely Stephen, have a gander here at at his ebay page.

Eurovision to return to jury voting (sort of)

I’m sure it reflects quite sadly on me that this is probably the best news I’ve heard in awhile. Ok today anyways.

The Eurovision was always a fave of mine when I was growing up. Probably because I had delusions of becoming a singer combined with a love of all things tacktastic. And probably because poor Ireland always came paddy last in pretty much everything else. To me, it was the one thing we seemed good at really.

But then, the dreaded phone voting came in and no one seemed to like us anymore. Everyone has heard the tired old story about bloc voting but it does appear to be true. Fair enough, we’ve entered nothing really but shoite in the last decade but I doubt even entering Bono could have got us enough points to win.

And so it was with great pleasure that I read jury voting was to be reintroduced to the Eurovision along with phone voting. What power the jury will have is yet to be decided but I’m hoping a lot more than the bleedin’ phone voters anyways.

I vote we enter Bosco in next year 😀

Just stumbled upon this – babies eating lemons:


As an aside, I love lemons and used to eat them whole as a nipper. I also had a thing for raw sausages when I was though, so there’s no accounting for taste. My poor mother.

Strange dreams

I had a dream last night that Madeleine McCann was found. My mum rang me to tell me, but she wasn’t sure where or how (my dream imagination wasn’t at full steam obviously). I was delighted and turned on Sky News to confirm who were having a massive party with streamers and pink balloons.

Then I woke up and felt sad that it wasn’t real 😦

Damn cheese.
