Pigeons… sort of

I went out tonight with a load of family and family to be. It was nice, but I drank a load of stuff that I don’t normally drink and now I am very, very sleepy, though not too drunk.

Due to todays events it occurred to me that quite a few people I know have pigeon anecdotes… Over the next few days I might add some of those that I have heard.

But in the mean time here is one of the rankest pigeon stories I have heard in a while
... and here is a less gross one, but might not be considered half as interesting

Peace out you crazy pigeon watchers

Fun facts for all… well, for me please

Each morning at the work team brief someone is required to give a “fishy fact”, I’m not entirely sure why this is. It might be because one of the aims of the centre is education, or it might just be because headoffice says we have to… anyway my fact was this:

The irish word for jellyfish translates into english as seal snot

...really it’s seal mucus, but snot is a kind of mucus I figured, and it sounds better. I like that fact.

Pigeon legs

I saw a pigeon with reeeeeally short legs today. Just thought I’d mention it.

Tea is good. So very good.

Niyce cappa tay lav?

I like tea. With biscuits. Or jam on toast.

I’m going to put up some pictures of my trip to Galway. I was away for a few weeks, a few weeks ago. And it was fun.

The first week the weather was fantastic and completely the opposite of the weather forecast, but then the second week Carraroe was covered by cloud, lashed with rain and received winds from the tail end of hurricane George, as crazy TV3 weatherman had said it would be. It was still nice to be there though.

On one of our coastal walks we met these two:

All together now... ahhhh

Hopefully will make it there next year too.

Tóg go bog é!

Council Tax letter make me go Grrrrr

The first letter demanding council tax arrived, and it really struck that I am no longer a student. It also made me angry. OK, so I get angry without much provocation but reasons why the letter made me go grrrrr:

1) It means I am no longer a student.
2) They claimed it was a reminder, gave me 7 days to reply and covered it in red ink.
3)They addressed the letter to Miss K Bray. K!?!

Reason 1 isn’t really their fault, and I suppose if I am that desparate I could save up and do a Masters in something vocational and useful and thus return to studentdom.

Reason 2 might not be their fault, as the initial bill may have got lost in the post, so they thought I hadn’t replied, but the overuse of red ink gave it a threatning edge… though not to the same extent as TV liscensing… but the seven days was a bit unpractical as I had dissapearded acroos the sea. But when I rang up they said ignore this letter because we hadn’t recieved the first one.

Reason 3 must be their fault. Because we didn’t recieve any previous letters I am presumbing that they got my name from the electoral register. This means that they got the information from something I wrote. Now, I am not the greatest speller, I freely admit it. Just reading this blog is evidence that it’s a bit crap at best, but I am sure that I can spell my own name, and I am sure that my handwriting isn’t so bad as to make a C look like a K. So reason three is due the the sheer incompetance of somebody working for the council and I think I am allowed to be annoyed… and sod you if you don’t agree.

Ofcourse now it is all sorted they are resending the letters in a less threatning manner to Miss C Bray I am no longer angry. But I going to see what my council tax gets me and check if I’m getting my moneys worth…

Going out

I know you shouldn’t… but I did. I applied nail varnish right before going out. But I didn’t apply a thin veneer, I applied a big thick blob and then preceeded to spread it all over myself and around the flat.

However if you decide to do this, ideally you should have a friend who can put a small amount on that will dry quickly, and will be willing to help you hold bags and keys with out smearing nail colour everywhere.

But I had a good night despite the dodgey nailvarnish on my left hand.

Today I had chocolate cake for breakfast. It was TESCOs finest chocolate indulgence… or something along those lines.

And it was good.

Shopping and craveing

Yesterday we went for lunch and then went shopping. And it is true that when you go shopping on a full stomach you don't crave all the junk food because you just don't feel like eating it.

However I found myself being drawn to homeware shelves and found myself reasoning the possibilities of a loaf–tin… I have NEVER cooked bread before EVER, but was thinking about buying a loaftin… it may have been the alcohol consumed previously, but I thought it was weird.
