Are you looking at my headgear?

Well now!
Firstly, I'm soon going to write an entry on why you should not work for Tesco under any circumstances, but I'm not in the mood now, on account of it being my birthday. That's right, my birthday! It's been anabsolutely awesome weekend - Roisin, David, mad old Random Fleur (apparently) and I took a trip to the Birmingham Sealife Centre in good old Fitz, the world's most faithful Fiesta since his recent mmmmmakeover. We traipsed around Birmingham for a bit and did a lot of impressions of the apocalyptic Canley crow; it was a great day. Today was absolutely fantastic as well and I'm feeling very happy typing away here. Nevertheless, though, don't ever work for Tesco. More later.

The latest Canley update is that there will soon be a Canley-Tile Hill Fun Day which I fully intend to infiltrate. Beforehand, however, I'll be taking a little trip to…


That's right! More news of impending trip and more Tesco vitriol soon. Until then, though, I'd like to say a big thank you to all my buddies of whom I've been thinking today, and especially to my housemates for being so fantastic. And also to good old Fleur, because she's not such a bad sort really, and I do love her very much. So…happy 8-month-iversary to you, Random…

We can talk all night, we can talk all day.
We can play charades when there is nothing to say.
You turn me on to the idea of growing old.
I can make you angry you can make me smile.
We can make origami with the kids for a while.
You turn me on to the idea of growing old.

Now it wonít be long. No it wonít be long.
You turn me on to the idea of growing old.

We can lay around and count the number of times
Iíve acted foolish and youíve rolled your eyes.
You turn me on to the idea of growing old.
You in your kerchief, and me in my cap.
We can settle down for an afternoon nap.
You turn me on to the idea of growing old.

For the rest of you, look at this fucking horrible picture:

Are you looking at my headgear?

They told me I was going to have to wear one of these once.
Ha ha ha, orthodontistry! I laugh in your wiry face!

Didya miss me, baby?

Well, well, well. After almost two months' absence, I have thoroughly returned. Here's hoping that my loyal fan base of devoted readers (er…) will soon be attracted back to my glowing, sparkling, all-new-ish blog. I certainly have missed articulating my thoughts in that specifically blog-ish way, although now I'm back I am suffering from a little bit of writer's block. Still, let's see, what have I been up to… I spent a week in New York towards the end of November which was absolutely awesome; climbed the Empire State Building (yes, straight up the side, King Kong-style), took the Staten Island ferry out to old Lady Liberty, visited Times Square, Ground Zero, Brooklyn, Harlem, Soho, Chinatown and my favourite, Greenwich Village. Many photos will soon follow. After that, I resumed working at Fopp, which was incredibly hectic but a good time, especially as the most ludicrous statement addressed to me was 'do you sell CDs here?', a huge victory over the unremitting absurdity I endured in my previous job, as you'll already know, blog fans! That took me up to the Christmas holiday, which was a very nice few days spent back in Ireland. As of the 31st of January, my contract ended and I am now unemployed – that's right, unemployed – although hopefully this is a temporary state. Yesterday and the day before saw the staging of 'Tossford Park', this year's Freshblood panto, which was a great success – thanks to all who came to see it. Anyway, I promise to post some more witty things later…just breaking myself back in slowly…

razzle dazzle!

switzerland is a place where they don't like to fight

'i want a photo of a funny grizzly bear' says konstantin. now, for a lesser blog than this, such a task would prove difficult. but for us, dear readers, nothing is impossible…

it's stuff like this that keeps idiots like me entertained (requires shockwave)

what cereal box did that come from?

reading about roisin's plan to donate the wonderful prize of a half-knitted scarf to mad old random, i was reminded of my inital plan to mark the obtaining of my 2000th comment by, well, something or other. unbeknownst to me, however, this landmark has come and gone, and the comment mark stands somewhere around 2050-something. therefore, i intend to celebrate receiving my 2068th comment, and the person who donates this will be rewarded with a very special prize*

*prize may not be very special

but what about BABY?

well now, well now, much news!
firstly, i've copied some CSS from natalie jazzed up my blog a little (sorry natalie, i totally ripped you off) which is quite exciting. hope it's still easy to navigate. gordon random, you mad old coot my sweet darling, your entries are tagged so that the blog will make a bit more sense – just tag them yourself when you write a new one.
secondly, here's my news! i've just returned from an awesome trip to dublin which encompassed the usual ratio of shopping and eating pizza to culture and being knocked over by mad people. i had a very cool time and was able to meet this rather nifty tiger-ish type:

also, however, i have fallen under the curse of sudoku, which is the current craze of my parents and, so it seems, THE ENTIRE WORLD. leaping onto the bandwagon a little too late is always painful, and my brain is only just starting to cope with this madness, as you can see:

warning: attempting sudoku puzzles may cause a small irish man to grow from the top of one's head

anyway, more news tomorrow!

swordsmanship's first achievement is the unity of man and sword

well, in the absence of too many tasks (phew) i will attempt to improve my rather dubious photoshopping skills.

i didn't go over the falls, george

well now, well now!

it has come to my attention that i have, in fact, FINISHED my dissertation. it's looking nice and pretty in its red binding and its name is: 'Closing the Open Road: Rednecks, revenge and the rationalisation of rebellion in milennial American cinema'. i'm off to hand it in very soon, which is quite a bizarre feeling. we've had a long and tumultuous relationship and i will be sad to see it go. i don't even feel particularly inspired to celebrate; instead, i will tidy up my room and probably go to the park and play frisbee (or 'crispee' as the canleyites term it). i will, however, be baby b-ing it tomorrow, so for those of you who attend, watch out for roisin and myself doing our very special 'wuthering heights' dance.
anyway, in other news. all is well in the canley house, fleur has gone to leeds, and i have just received this email:

I am Basil to Late paulton Allen a foreigner and an
Engineer with Atlas Engineering Co.Late paulton Allens has an account
with B.I.DB. which he set up in 1980.He died in 1996 in Benin Republic
of West Africa.
I received a memo early this year from the international remittance
unit of Banque .Internationale Du.Benin(B.I.D.B) for an interview about
$45M USD that belongs to my client Late P.Allen ,The Bank informed me
on their policy to Freeze the account of Late Paulton Allen and
redirect his funds $45m usd back to government treasury because they
saw no next of kinin his entire file within the bank and his acct has
been dormant for many years which is against the policy of the B.I.DB.
I am contacting you because of the need to involve a foreigner with
foreign account as the foreign beneficiary to that fund.I have resolved
to share the money in this ratio.50% for me,35% for you ,10% for the
remittance manager in the bank who has agreed to guide us for the
success of our objectives and 5% for expences we might incurre in the
processing of this transaction.
I will need your full name and address,including your bank account
informations where the funds will be processed into. i will also need
your telephone and fax numbers for oral communications too.I will start
the processing of all the legal documents to back up your claim
immediately you send all the required information.I will give you
further details on the entire process when i receive your positive
Basil Luta

i am more than a little sceptical.
