Why would you schedule a football meeting at the same time as a funeral THE ENTIRE TEAM has to go to. In the SAME PLACE. WHY.

(hello lj and dw!)


Today I worked a double shift. Dressed as Santa.

Sometimes karma is fucking laser guided.

What I do at work

Today I found a spider at work in the back room. Not just any spider, though. We have these locally (warning: what do you think you're going to see when you click that link). I personally don't have a problem with spiders. This was way too good a chance to pass up, though. I gently picked it up with a jumper. And put it on my boss's work area :)

The screaming was funny.

Have you been watching tv? I have been watching ALL THE TV this year it is great. Once Upon a Time and Terra Nova make me so fucking happy you have no idea. Also Person of Interest (Ben! Back on my telly!), the much-improved Boardwalk Empire and Grimm, which I am mostly watching to see Seymour from Burn Notice play Wolf from the 10th Kingdom.

Snapshot in bullet points

Yes, ino I keep saying my life is crazy at the moment but it rly is. I was in Ireland for the football final again (we're not talking about the match) and
  • we got kicked out of a kebab shop (turns out you can't make demeaning Father Ted references at bouncers in Ireland because they actually saw it
  • my friend fell off the top bunk, climbed back in, went back to sleep, woke up the next morning without a mark on her, asking 'so who fell out of bed last night?'
  • we had to forcibly eject two guys from the room at 4am. When our goalkeeper kicks you, you stay kicked. Also I managed to drag a guy right across the room. Still can't work out how I got the door open.
Last night was my friend's engagement party. Okay backstory: last time I went to visit her a few weeks ago, I slept with one of her boyfriend's friends (it was a costume party, he was dressed as Han Solo this is like catnip) so I was kind of looking forward to seeing him again! Immediately when I saw my friend, she and her boyfriend solemnly sat me down and said 'he's not coming. He crashed his bike into a tree yesterday and broke three ribs'. My thoughts in order:
  • Oh God I truly am some kind of grotesque freakshow
  • I kind of admire that kind of dedication to getting out of awkwardness?
OH MY GOD WHAT IS MY LIFE EVEN (I should probably add that there is some PMS involved in this thought process).

Sport Overdose.

I have just shouted myself hoarse coaching a bunch of twelve year old girls. We couldn't find them a girls team to play against so they mixed in with the boys. Every one of them is better than all the boys on that team. I feel awesome. Also come September I may have a second job going into the school to coach them. Also also my own game is tomorrow :D:

I did two races in the past couple of weeks. There was a two mile handicap which is going to go down as the only race I will ever win in my life (19:47! When did I start ten minute miling?). Hilariously it's the one thing in the club that my dad never won. Mine is the BIG cup :D

On Sunday I did a 5k in 30:46. I sprinted the last 200m and did not make it out of the finishing funnel, taking a little nap. Face down. In the dirt. My friends responded to this with "There's another race in three weeks! We'll get you under 30 by then :)" I love/hate those guys.

EDIT: Meant to put this up last week. I love my job.


Hello I suck at updating

In the past couple of weeks I have broken my printer, my phone, my bag and some muscles in my leg. Fortunately I fixed everything bar the phone (shiny new phooooooooooooooone!)

I would watch the fuck out of this spin-off. Also the frat boys on the wall one, and a Varys/Littlefinger road trip.

I have been spending too much time reading various texts from last night, especially the A-Team and X-Men ones. But why are all the ones that apply to me Magneto ones?

I was deeply fucking amused by how every time in the movie when Magneto got a little crazier, the Irish accent got a little more noticeable. Seriously, by the last scene it was 'Wheeeeeeee let's kill everything! Ciarrai abu!'


Rome braces for 'prophet-predicted quake'

Thousands of people are reported to be staying out of Rome for the next few days, over fears the city will be hit by a huge earthquake.

The panic was sparked by rumours that seismologist Raffaele Bendandi, who died in 1979, predicted the city would be devastated by a quake on 11 May.

(also I'm halfway through the last ASOIAF book. I ship Tyrion/Sansa. I am rly sorry about this. I think it's lingering affection from Steerpike/Violet if Violet was less dippy and Steerpike was less evil. And shorter)

Game of Thrones/ASOIAF

I always said I wasn't going to read it until it was done. But here I am after watching a couple of eps of the show, reading the damn thing.

This shit is actually pretty great so far. Who knew? Tell me what/who you like and don't like, people who read it, please.
