Diary of an Apprentice secretary.

Thank you RedLemonade for the best laugh I’ve had all week.

I’m going to the Market Bar this evening to drown my sorrows with beer and chorizo (it may not be possible to drown in chorizo, but I sure will try).

I have no real sorrows officially, I’m just a wee bit tired and getting the winter blues. It’s so grey outside.

On my desk, I have a postcard of Knut, the polar bear from Berlin, when he was cute and cuddly and tussling with a fluffy green blanket. I look at this postcard quite a bit these days. It’s uplifting both in the sense in that he looks so gosh-darn-huggable, and in that I remember the massive outpouring of the public when it was suggested that he be put down. It was only a small polar bear, obviously incomparable to the many issues facing the Irish public right now, but it still makes me smile.
