Happy 17th of March everyone.
How are we all today?
top of the morning to you
Im alright me
wear green, and get drunk and say "what a crack Im having"
While downing a bottle of Baileys Biscotti.
whilst trying not to fall asleep
It's a miracle
"When we got to Dussledorf, they made us shoot all the zoo animals."
Working here, avoiding all the festivities.
I've already gotten a call from one housemate asking could she get back into the house party she's at. She thought she was calling our other housemate. Sounds like last night was a big night.
Probably have a jacket potato for lunch
Wish me luck 👍
Wearing a comedy sporran and ginger wig to work, and I've got a haggis burrito with Guinness and potatoes for lunch. Freedom!
(lost by just ONE AND A HALF POINTS).
Also had my first Spoons "Mexican Monday", was 7/10 I reckon.
have heard nothing but good things about the quality of the burritos but i remain skeptical
I had the pulled pork burrito.
Dunno if you've had other Spoons pulled pork stuff but tit was the same, tasty but quite sweet. You get salsa, chillies and guacamole on the side, and also sour cream but they'd run out of that (my sis who I was with also had Mexican Monday last week and the same thing happened, wtf?), and they forgot our sides of tortilla chips but brought some out when we asked.
It's £5.99 with booze, £4.99 with soft drink. Highly recommended tbh.
my radio show put out a special guest mix by a friend that is excellent. can i post it here? well fuck it, i am going to. https://www.mixcloud.com/sheeldz/monday-graveyard-show-65-16032015/
Bit distracted today - gf is on nasty new medication and she's not feeling well today. Could be unrelated, but if her temperature increases it's a trip to the hospital to check for liver function.
I'm sure she'll be fine, but I'm going to be a bit twitchy at phone notifications all day.
Ouch, that doesn't sound like fun. I hope she's alright.
A friend of mine dislocated and broke her ankle on the way to our book club last night. Absolutely freak accident that happened right outside the pub. Waiting on news of her operation today.
I know a guy who shattered his just stepping off a pavement awkwardly while pissed. Made it much, much worse by limping home on it, but it healed so poorly that he can't run or jump, years later. Terrifying.
Also have a former colleague in Bristol who broke her ankle in a "freak accident" she was reticent to divulge more details of. It finally came out that she did it falling off a hay bale at a Wurzels gig :D
Hope your pal's alright too.
Yeah, another friend managed to break his ankle stepping over a small wall one night. No idea how. Same deal there, it's healed badly and he can't play football anymore!
She'll be okay, fingers crossed.
I think i smell of garlic today.
Feeling much better than i did yesterday, can't imagine why.
St Patricks day eh?! I though this was only celebrated by the irish, ex pats Irish and students?!
Essentially, yes. It's just an excuse to get drunk really.
but meaning to dis the whole 'public misconception'
Ex Pats Irish and students, rarely have shortages of excuses to get drunk.
What St Patricks day more is, is a mass simultaneous wide spread excuse to get drunk
to film the wonderful colourful St Patricks day celebrations (people wearing green things and drinking and talking about their cracks)
How many cunts in your places of work just so happen to be wearing (emerald) green today?
Spotted one so far. Expecting reports of a few more.
Some have donned comedy leprechaun hats and beards. They are not my favourite people in the world right now.
The shame of it.
Just got a text from my housemate.
"Drop the boy, drop the boy- oi A-Eurrrrrrughooooooo"
I think that's a fairly good approximation of the noise.
Both myself and my desk neighbour have both fielded calls from pissed-up friends/housemates this morning asking where we are for the session. Top folk.
That's the mighty Bros. "Drop the Boy"
I don't think I've ever heard one of their songs.
Bloody hyped out my nut for Paddys day, already started pouring my Guiness now so it will be ready for lunchtime!!! Hiding a few blarney stones about the flat as a sort of leprechaun piss take and already booming out Dirty Old Town from the roof garden. Oh the Oirish eyes are smilin SING! fiddle dee diddle dee dim Half a pint of milk for mother SING! giddily dim dee dim
(Actually just pretty subdued today as preparing myself to try and AJ Sam Smith who is in town, he won't be up until 12am though as got a plant in his Holiday Inn who says he wasn't in until 2am last night)
Quality! This is going to be the best Paddys day since 2008!!!!
here is a horse
also please notice there is some green (Ireland is well known for having 'green' grass (apparently this is an 'Irish thing' ...having green grass.....its called (confusingly for kids) the emerald isle, because its grass is green.....not because there are any emeralds there....in fact I'd wager that there have never been any emeralds found there)
We've got some zinc if you want that?
My 'sexy leprechaun' get-up is at my mum and dad's house, I laid it out at the weekend when I was back but forgot to take it with me when I left yesterday morning. It has a green net underskirt and everything and a black and gold velvet guiness style bustier. Fuck. There goes tonight's plans.
Let me hunt for a pic.
not the clearest in the world but you get the idea- http://tinyurl.com/mfz5kkz
I'm sure I'll see some out on the town later!
I am trying to have zero interest in St Patricks day celebrations this year, I know you are on the other side of the brick wall,
, but I will NOT picture it.
do I go crack one out?
Explain it to your boss tomorrow.
in a way
in front of others, at the behest of your family....dancing, playing and instrument, singing?
but not 'made to' as such. Being precocious little shites, we insisted that our parents and grandparents sat through a litany of 'shows' every weekend.
Thankfully we both decided early on that we hated irish dancing, and so we were spared that humiliation at least.
My mum and dad made me and brother perform as a dance/singing troupe called "The Tell Me Twins" (yes I know so clichéd but it was only to close and some extended family's at birthdays, funerals etc) The main issue here is that I am 7 years my brothers senior so was always a bit too old for it so they had to dress me up in younger looking clothes and put young looking face paint on me (rose cheeks/bigger eye lashes) and my brother in older boy clothes/a suit a couple of times as well. Looking back it wasn't too bad and made them some extra money as we were pretty poor but family still wind me up about it :(
I wonder how much such things happen overall?
I HATED Irish dancing. Like, keep my arms straight and have a rubbish time? No ta. My Sister was, of course, an expert. I was more interested in my Nan's accordion that I couldn't lift.
She broke it out last year and started playing it again at the age of eighty-four. Amazing woman.
I just asked Mother what happened to Nan's. Apparently she gave it away :(
I didn't as I was a misery guts.
prize was free dinner at the pub, so we're going again tonight to eat our free dinner and enter the quiz again. otehr teams were fucking awful last time, so confident of another win
apparently it lasts from 10 - 3 am, I'm blatantly going to be sleeping on one of the chairs in the back by 1 am.
checking emails and listening BBC 6 music. Things could be worse.
I went for a wee and the flatmate of the person who I was staying round had obviously left a poo in the toilet like during the night but there was no paper and the water was too....discoloured for it to have been flushed and then left as a defeat.
Why even do this when you live with people? Just flush it if its a poo? Absolutely hated the fact I had to flush it before being able to have a wee and then again after I had done it cos then it looked like I had done a non flusher.
I'm tired and irritable. I've stopped smoking. I definitely shouldn't do this.
I'm on week six of not smoking. It is depressing, and has driven me a bit batty at times, which is silly as obviously it's a good thing to stop smoking the cancer stix, and I'm not allowed to smoke anyway. Good for you!
hell is supermarkets at 11am on a tuesday
so many old people mid aisle, with their trolly turned along the width of it, not moving
when the sun sets less than 12 hours before it rises.
Somethings aren't meant to be understood.
turns out you're right
