It’s pure brilliant .

Snow. SNOW! Yaaaaaaaay!

I don’t know why snow makes me so ridiculously excited but it does. I probably haven’t seen proper snow since the 90’s and it makes me feel like I’m nine years old again. A nine year old with a desk job however.

It’s a nice start to the week though, especially after such a fun-packed weekend. Went to see the Bodies Exhibition on Saturday which was very interesting indeed. I couldn’t quite take in that I was looking at actual corpses – they looked almost plastic to me – but it was fascitinating stuff really. The place was a bit too jammed for my liking though so by the end my inner grump won out so I left and headed up to the coffee area ‘up inside upstairs’ (seriously, the sign says that on one of the main doors – how Irish is that?!). Mr Darragh Doyle has a great post on it here with a lot more detail. The exhibition that is, not the weird coffee sign.

Yesterday morning, myself and himself watched Michael McIntyre: Live at the Apollo. The man is a legend. An absolute legend. I have never laughed so much so early on a Sunday morning. Well apart from Christmas Mass (dodgy folk group ‘singing’).

Lookee here – it’s so true!

Finally, yesterday evening, we managed to get tickets to Slumdog Millionaire in Dundrum. It’s been sold out there every night for aaaages. Unless you got up at four in the morning to book them, you’d be seated practically in the screen but yesterday, we managed to get the last two decent seats. And it was so worth the wait. What a gorgeous, gorgeous film. I am unashamedly jumping on the Slumdog fan bandwagon – I loved it. It’s not perfect of course, but nothing beats walking out of a film with a smile on your face like that.

Right, I’m off to make snow angels. I wish!

I have only one episode of The Wire left to watch

Following on from Anthony’s brilliant Heineken dd, here’s another great offering from the Dutch brewski:

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.
