What a nice Christmas.

I’ve now got a ten pound food baby which I heartily enjoyed conceiving and a few lovely pressies (appreciated muchly). I’ve been lazing about the house in a constant glow of Christmas cheer and booze whilst my new Ugg-like slippers keep my feet toasty warm.

And one of the best surprises this Christmas?


As usual I’m five years behind everyone else, but seriously, better late than never. Much better.

As a result blogging has been light of late and may continue in this fashion as I catch up with The Wire. See you in four seasons.

Happy New Year!

Never get hair cut this close to Christmas again. 

The pretty blonde hairdresser is sick of doing the same graduated bob for the 416th time that day and just wants to go out on the tear.

Hence my hair is now a full four inches shorter than I wanted it to be, and my resemblence to the 9 year old neighbour next door – Zach – is uncanny.  

20 years from now I will be looking back at photos from Christmas 2008 wondering what on earth I was thinking. I hope I still have this blog to remind me that I DIDN’T ASK FOR THIS.

Overheard in the toilets in Dundrum Town Centre

Jesus, I hate public toilets. They’re fuckin’ disgustin’.

Yeah, me too. They look clean but they stink to the high heavens.

I’d rather piss in a field. 

Yeah, or the back of a bus…

No, that was the front of the bus.

In Baldoyle?


That was genius.

22nd December

 Today, the 22nd December, is always one of my favourite days of the year. Not only is it Christmas Eve Eve Eve,  it is also the day after the shortest day of the year, which means the cold, wintry nights will get shorter from here on in.  Happy (and longer) days.

How great would it be if you could get fry-ups delivered to your door? Seriously,  how great.

Mylo – Guilty of Love

It always used to be on the ad for that programme on E4 where four fame hungry young ones/fellas would pretend to be single and one even more fame hungry wannabe would try to pick out the real single. All while the other halves watched through a two-way mirror. Sexy.

Google is not being my friend today and I can’t find any record of that programme so maybe I dreamt it all up in a reality TV nightmare. It was strangely compelling though…

ETA: Happy Fookin’ Friday!

Laurence Fishburne – kickin’ serious crime ass in CSI. Oh yeah.

If I were 12 again…

I would want this lamp.

Ok, I still want this lamp. Embarrassingly so.


It’s stupidly dear though at $120, so you’d want to be a rich 12 year old to purchase, or, more realistically, have extra generous parents.
