i think i'm going to TEAR OUT MY EYES AND TEAR OFF MY EARS
that'll shut her up/make her stop about ireland
Seems a bit harsh.
Worst case: you get sacked
Best case: you get sacked and get an interview in a leading tabloid
every self respecting irish woman keeps in her purse.
if anyone can do it, you can!
"My boyfriend once totally dissed your dad in Heathrow Airport"
waiting for my friends to set off to Benicassim, when I clocked walking straight towards me Bob Geldof in a white line suit. I couldn't believe it. I thought "Oh my god I hate that cunt, I should tell him so." But then I thought "Don't go in with profanity you'll be too easy to close". So I came up with the best I could in the short time remaining. As I stepped up to me I thought "It's now or never". So I looked straight at him, got his eye contact and said in the sarkiest tone I could muster "Alright Bob, off to save the world, or just a holiday?".
He just kind of snarled at me and mooched off. Which was a bit poor. If I was him I would've said "No I'm just going for a poo" or something equally as droll
she's not as moonface as she is in photos.
Make use of that pointless language.
of people on the internets
Her fancy bit Farris was recording there. She squeezed past me at the front door, said "Excuse me" and then giggled like a retarded schoolgirl has she skipped down the courtyard. It was so fucking annoying i seriously contemplated murder - arghhhh!!!!
whats the use in it?
'oh what's the use in Irish, ugh it's lame' argument.
if you're one of those irish people who thinks it's stupid that we still learn irish, frankly, you can fuck off.
if you are, how on earth can you feel that that's right? dismissing and ignoring the language that was spoken in the country you live in right up until the last century?
I can speak it to reasonable degree,but I think it has no practical use.
The only argument I've ever heard for learning Irish is that "It's on the course,you'll fail your leaving cert if you don't" or "It's your native language".
It is not my native language,just beacuse people who lived on the same island as me hundreds of years ago spoke it.
So tell me,apart from those 2 arguments,why should I care?
to be fair, the fact that there is a television station in the irish language, radio stations in the irish language - does show that it has a practical use. it's also recognised as an official language of the EU.
it saddens me greatly that you seem to not care about it. maybe because i do.
people still have it as their first language in places around the country, my grandad for one was a native speaker, it's not just 'people who lived on the same island as me hundreds of years ago spoke it. '
I won't be accepted into uni,which is the whole point of the leaving,so I consider not being able to do the point of it a fail.
As for the " there is a television station in the irish language, radio stations in the irish language",well,take away the goverment grants for promoting the language and see if they can get the viewing figures to support the nescessary advertising revenue to suppoert themselves.
"it's also recognised as an official language of the EU.",which means that all E.U. legislation and beaurocratic mumblings are translated into Irish.But how many of these documents are actually requested in Irish?There is NOT A SINGLE Irish politician in Brussels who has a need for that.They all speak English as a first language,along with most of the population of Ireland.
"people still have it as their first language in places around the country".These would be the Gaeltacht,eh?Famous for economic stagnation,unemployment and moving to the cities.And anyway,what percentage are they compared to the amount of people who speak Engislh as a first language?
And surely the fact that your grandfather had it as a first language,but you don't,is a sign of it's death?
And you still haven't told me why I should learn it.
P.s.sorry if I'm coming across as a bit of an arsehole,but Irish is the only subject I might fail!
i am the shiz at irish.
ok, aside from all the facts and figures blah.
basically i feel it's an important part of the irish culture and heritage, and is something that shouldn't be discarded and forgotten.
the leavings done and over with,but thanks for the offer :)
Anyway,I agree that it's a part of our heritage.
anyway, it makes me sad when i hear young people be all negative about irish. it holds a place in my heart.
i don't, as my dad doesn't, as my grandad died when he was really young.
Sorry to hear
and say something witty.
oh, good times.
to stand in the front row of a gig. Luckily for her she mowed a few more people down after me and I couldn't reach the biatch.
i dont believe you
Surely she's very Irish?
its like people on st patricks day bringing up the fact that their great nan knew an irish person.
i whinge about my lack of celebrity-spotting in london, but i probably wouldn't spot half of them
That was pretty cool.
and that the ony reason she doesn't recognise you is because her dad is a fame hungry, glory stealing one hit wonder cunt. Then hold up a copy of Het magazine with her big mug in it and sing "This means nothing to me!" in a dramatic style before flouncing out
came out with an inane repost like 'THIS is why i don't like fridays'?
for getting th lyrics to her fathers one and only song incorrect. Sir Bob would no doubt approve.
for forgetting Rat Trap.
And all the others.
That solo one The Great Song Of Indifference. That was amusing.
Banana Republic, that's another Rats one.
Stop typing, Simon, for everyone's sake.
I love that song. I used to sing it in maths all the time.
you have to wonder what its like to know the whole world probably said 'not surprised to hear that silly cow' when Paula Yates topped herself.
And yes get a job and like rap or something instead. Yeah
pictures or it didn't happen.
tits or gtfo
and then scalp her.
Did you know she's a journalist,
but also an idiot
and looks dead.
aren't you leaving your job anyway?
discussing her at this moment
(sorry I cant help being naughty sometimes)
Pixie clearly got the looks.
