An absolute gem this time. I was in town the other day and walked into a restaurant to hear this being fed out of the speakers. It instantly reminded me of a very drunken night when my friends and I came home from a night on the rip and stuck in one of Elvis’s greatest hits compilations, where we proceeded to dance our little cotton socks off around the kitchen.

One of my all time favourite songs.

the king – burning love

Song trivia (courtesy of wikipedia) –

My proudest moment of the week came this past tuesday, when foxy handed me a present from the lad’s travels in America. They said it represented me best. Watch out ladies!

I think they might have been taking the piss…

bastille

I’ll be honest at around 8:30pm last night I was starting to get quite a few butterflies in my stomach. Only half an hour to go till I was to “storm the bastille”.

Well it actually went much better than expected. We met in the Church cafe/bar at the end of Henry St. had a coffee and pretty much just talked for an hour or so about all the thing we’d got up to in the last 10 months or so. About all the crazy stories, the highs……and the lows, that we each had accumalated.
Things were never awkward and thankfully there were no real moments where I wished that the world would just open up and swallow me whole as I had earlier envisioned.

All in all, not bad for something i’ve never done before.

coffee-cup


Tomorrow night i’m going to meet up with a girl that I kissed a few times for a while back in early september of ’08. Why, you might ask, am I posting this? Well this is the first time i’ve ever done something like this and things didn’t end all that well between us…. plus i’m slightly curious as how tomorrow will go.

We met during the orientation week of the new semester in DUC, she was over with a few of her friends from france studying for a semester. Instantly we hit it off and we all spent quite a bit if time together. One drunken night led to another, and another, and another. After a while things started to change, I realised that this girl wasn’t for me, in fact I had to ask myself “what the hell are you doing mate?”

So I sat the french girl down and told her how I felt, and that I would like to have stayed friends. Unfortunately she didn’t take it so well, and left. We have only met one time since, and that was while waiting for a bus. AWKWARD.

Something which I honestly doesn’t happen tomorrow night.

I will of course report back on friday with the lowdown.

rude

One thing that makes my blood boil is when you might be chattting to a person on gmail, then all of a sudden they just don’t reply, when they quite clearly are still online.

It usually goes something like this..
You…..
Them…
You…..
Them…
You………………………………………………………………

Fair enough if you started a chat and they never wrote back in the first place, but when they do and ye start to have a conversati….BAM!….nothing. To me, it’s just bloody bad manners. I think i’d rather be told by the person that they had to go, or some other excuse. It’s the same as having a conversation with someone in the real world and mid-conversation just walking off on the other person.

It’s just plain rude.

Stay tuned for more sound.off’s from yours truly.

We’ve all become incredibly ridiculous when it comes to the internet. We now spend our time updating our facebook and Twitter status’s with utter shite, and at the end of the day, shite is what it is. Twitter, for example, started out as a simple idea so people could get an idea of what their friends were doing. Now many of the posts we see are just that persons musings or something completely nonsensical. I find that the most interesting tweeters are
the people that just let you know exactly what they are doing or where they are. I don’t really care what song they just listened to.

As a friend of mine once expertly put it “DOES ANYBODY CARE!”
