When sleep will not come

I can’t sleep.

Seriousy, what the double-you-tee-effing-fuck. Sorry, I mean f*ck.

It’s my first early Friday night in donkies. I thought it would lead to a long leisurely walk in Marlay Park or a stroll along Howth with chipper chips and battered sausages (I don’t do fish) but all I can muster up is a night in watching a repeat of Lost, some old school tunes and a renewed verve for all things Radiohead.


*On a random note though*

One of the bosses in work had a baby boy who he called Tom for simplicitity sake.  Nuh-huh.  I said it was a lovely name but not that simple really.  Fortunately,   he didn’t  really get the Thom Yorke reference at all  and chose to move on with his life, happy baby in tow.

Good for him 😀

Fake babies

Shouldn’t children have dolls and women real babies? Not the case according to last nights television….

Channel 4 broadcast ‘My Fake Baby’ last night at the same time that TV3 aired ‘Britain’s Youngest Mums’. The latter was a programme about two sisters aged 15 and 16 having their first children in an already fairly overcrowded house (mostly populated by dogs). The youngest of the pair, Lizzie, was very much unprepared for the child and didn’t seem to care as she puffed away on her malboro lights. Her older sister however, was extremely eager for the upcoming birth and in fact had become pregnant on purpose after she had found out that her younger sister had gotten pregnant first. Nice.

My Fake Baby was a documentary about middle aged women who collect ‘reborns’. These are extremely realistic dolls of newborn babies and are seriously seriously weird – they look…. dead…. Ick.

I spent last night flicking between the two programmes, wishing to God I had Sky Plus so I could watch each in full. Both demanded full attention although I have to admit, I had to turn off the Fake Babies programme several times because I was feeling quite disturbed. Especially at the elder lady who was trying to replace her grandson after his mother had moved sticks to America (I wonder why…..)
Scary scary lady.

Ya gotta love car crash tv.
