Last Day of School

That's what it felt like getting up and walking into work today, it being my last day of employment and all. And I might have felt a bit down had this song not popped up into my earphones. I defy anybody not to laugh and join in.



After all, IT DOESN'T MATTER IF THE ROCK WANTS TO GO GET DIAMOND RINGS OR NOT.

Wise words indeed.

Ah there's Paul

No seriously this is not a joke.

Aren't there more important things than worrying about the shaggin' name?

jaysuss!

I Need This

K; oh was it the pretty floral one?

Three Words You Never Thought You Would Hear....


unique studded unitard


''Rock this unitard 80s style and team with a shrunken acid wash denim jacket and heel''

AAAhhhhhh fashion (ref: gok)

So on Sat myself and the lovely kitty had to look pretty and pile on the red lippy for the 9th fashion bloggers brunch! The venue was the lovely Saba Thai restaurant on clarendon street. We were to be there for 12 but as eager as ever myself and kitty turned up at 11.50am, and offered our services to Annemarie in helping with the goody bag sorting! (i 'discovered' last night when i eventually got round to opening the bag that i had but two packets of noodles, a simple clerical error i assure you!) Thanks to Saba for the free food and gifts ('healthy boy soy sauce' well is there any other kind? errr what's fish sauce though?) Thanks also to the 'yes to carrots' people and 'the Gloss' Mag for the free goodies as well. I cant wait to try out my new body butter! 

I have to say though and this is no bearing on the food itself which was delicious! But at twelve on a sat i felt that maybe it was a bit early for that kind of food but that's just me i was hanging for some eggs and tea and toast! And as it turned out the place was hopping with people when we left at two. 

Kitty comforted herself by ordering a cheesecake cocktail, as you do. Annemarie had a toblerone one which was divine and the always lovely lynnie had a mojito and i was very jealous when i saw that. Looked so refreshing!

As always everyone looked effortlessly cool. And with that in mind i popped into topshop (sale on by the way) and purchased a pair of skinny hounds tooth patterned trousers down from 40 something to 20 something!

Result! 

What the..?

It was just here two seconds ago! I think. It wasn't much of a to-do list anyway seeing as they're hardly going to hand any new jobs over to me it being my last week and all, but I haven't even left my desk and it's somehow disappeared. It's not in the bin and its not under the heap of papers that should be in the bin by now. This is weird. Maybe there's a paper eating gremlin hiding under my desk. The cute furry Mogwai type though, not this type. Although he does seem handy enough with a phone, which would mean I don't have to answer it. Come out, creepy little gremlin and make yourself useful instead of confusing me.

Pick Me(me)

After Googling meme to find some clever picture or other for this post, it turns out that there's some bird in America called Meme Roth. She doesn't like fat kids. Or something.


Anyway, to the matter at hand. This meme has made it's way to Lemonade Dearg, courtesy of
Sir Maxi after whoring itself around practically every other blog going. But since I like it when the other kids invite me to play, here we go.

1. Put the link of the person who tagged you on your blog.
2. Write the rules.
3. Mention 6 things or habits of no real importance about you.
4. Tag 6 persons adding their links directly.
5. Alert the persons that you tagged them.

1) I can pop my bellybutton inside out.

2) I was on Echo Island when I was in 6th class and helped to win a computer for my primary school. Dara O'Briain got into a big argument with a producer right next to little eleven year old me because he helped me with the answer. I had buck teeth and wore a lumberjack shirt. Maybe it was out of pity.

3) I'm amazingly good at hula hooping on the Wii Fit but absolutely hopeless at it in real life.

4) On a random Saturday in Cork I was pulled out of a crowd to stand on a half naked Canadian man lying on a bed of nails.

5) The first boy I ever shifted turned out to be gay two weeks later. Not entirely certain how much I had to do with that particular realisation.

6) I quite enjoyed Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Apart from Fuckface LaBoeuf, naturally.

Seeing as the whole world and it's ma have done this by now, I'm not tagging anyone, apart from YOU; person who might read this and has a blog and is as yet untagged. Go nuts.

And yes Maxi, of course myself and T Cup have sexy feet. In fact T has possibly the wiggliest of toes you ever will see.

Update
Here are my own six (tcup)

1) (this ones for you maxi) i can separate out my toes and wiggle my little toe at you!!
2) I have been going out with the same boy for nearly 7 years
3) I wanted to join the army and had all the forms etc but missed the deadline and then instead i went to college in cit to be a designer! some chalk & cheese anyone?
4) My dream job is to work in television even if it involves making the tea!! and i make a cracking cup!
5) I can also bend my fingers to a 90 degree angle from the back of my hand!
6) I read richard hammonds book about his crash!

AC/DC

I just want to say a few words about THE BEST concert I have been to since, well since about 21/febuary/1982! On they came to the roar of the fans who have been waiting for this moment for a. very. long. time. The set they used was pure genius the big mahoosive graphics to get the crowd going were nothing short of, "jaysus that's fecking class". They gave the crowd everything they wanted and more! I saw grown men cry and women get "the jack!" when "thunderstruck" arrived i got sooo excited a little bit of pee came out! 

now what do i do!


Weighing in at Nineteen Stone

AC/DC - A. Mazing.

On one hand I was raging that I'd forgotten my camera, but on the other I was glad I could just enjoy the crazy-ass motherfuckin' show that Angus, Brian et al put on in the Point and not worry about dropping it or trying to get a picture with no hands in the way. Too much bare, sweaty, badly tattooed man torso and the fact that not all the sweat on us was our own made no odds as it was easily one of the best concerts I've ever been to. Where else would you get a giant runaway train crashing onto the stage, a sixty foot Rosie riding said train in her knickers (my favourite bit), firing canons and a ten minute guitar solo wankathon? In two words: AWE. SOME.

Well played, boys.

EDIT: I forgot to add that the Bear and I also saw a blonde bird on some guy's shoulders get her tits out. It would appear that these things do happen in real life. Nice pair and all, but definitely fake.

Wii Brain


It's probably a sign that I've been playing too much MarioKart Wii lately when I dream about being chased by a red shell and recall thinking; "Dammit, it's a heat seeker though, how the hell am I going to get away from this!?"

When of course the obvious thing to do is throw another shell or banana skin at it before it hits me, only I had neither at hand.

No results found. Please adjust your search and try again.

Yeah well maybe I would "adjust my search" if all I wanted to do wasn't in fact graphic design, and print design at that, you lousy search robot. I really shouldn't have spent four years in college pretending web design didn't exist and sticking my fingers in my ears shouting LA LA LA at the mere mention of Flash or Dreamweaver. So now all job ads for graphic designers include landmines such as "interactive design", "online graphic design", "knowledge of Flash, HTML, CSS" and all print designers can shag off because we don't need them or want them and they smell weird anyway. Bastards. As it happens, the two most suitable jobs I've come across happen to be back where I'm from in Waterford. And as much as I like heading back to the Déise of a weekend, moving back there altogether would make it only a matter of time before I start naming the paperclips on my desk and making friends with them. And that might be fun for a while, just me and my paperclippy buddies going on office based adventures but it would most likely get old rather quickly. Alternatively, there have been one or two jobs lurking in the shadowy outskirts of my search, sneering and rubbing their dirty hands together, as they are jobs in the dreaded signage industry, which I spent about ten months working in after I left college and would not go back to for love nor money nor my very own B.O.B. voiced by Seth Rogen.

Le sigh.

Adventures in Lismore

The Towers! Lismore Castle! Eight quid a head to get into the gardens for a look around? I don't bloody think so.

Scaling a ten-foot stone wall in skinny jeans and cowboy boots to break into the grounds of a castle, while tricky, is in fact achievable.

Falling Over and Shameless Promotion of a Band I Like

Last week, whilst walking home in the sunshine, I was happily bopping along to this Dead Flags song, enjoying the sunshine and generally not looking where I was going. My happy clappy mood was soon altered though when a ninja cobblestone beside chq conspired to trip me up, resulting in me hopping myself off the not at all soft ground. It was the kind of fall I hadn't experienced since I was aged eight and fell on the tarmac driveway at my cousin's birthday party, hopped up on jelly and ice cream and possibly a funsize Mars or three. Probably. My first thought wasn't anything to do with how embarrassing it was (and it really was) though, as the area was all busy with IFSC minions and the like, but rather: "None of these fuckers are helping me up! Bastards!" And this is what happened to my poor little knobbly knee:


So although I was blaming the aforementioned Dead Flags for my injury, I just couldn't stay mad at them and attended their superfun gig in Whelan's last night, which was indeed both super and fun. I'm heading home home to Waterford with the Bear this weekend and we're going to catch their gig in Clonmel of all places, seeing as it's nearby. Oh yeah, and they're staying in my house that night cos I'M SO FUCKING ROCK AND ROLL that I'm bringing a band home ow oww! Clicky here to marvel at their wit and general cleverness in an interview they did for drop-d.ie and get on over to their website for a listen to the kind of songs that'll distract you from impending leg injury and general bruising. In a good way of course.

Kate Moss new collection

So herself has produced a new collection for topshop. I wasn't much of a fan of her stuff before. Black skinny jeans and white tee's with a cutout at the back was hardly ground breaking design. Although her second collection ( i think it was second, the one with the red halter dress anyway) was much better and this new collection is better again. 

My favourite is this sequin striped vest. I love it's simplicity and how all you need is a pair of jeans and some killer heels to work it! It's only £50 on the website which I think is very good. However I can imagine how much it costs here about oh lemme see now €1,000,000, give of take a few thousand! grr..... 

The guna's are not half bad either have look here, clicky!

I just realised my keyboard has no hash button.
I had to kidnap that one from a Raptureponies post.
Don't worry RPs, I'll mind it.
