WedNov08 Holy Fuck...

Spotted this restaurant in China Town in London while we were off on holidays a few weeks back. Just found it on my camera now, so thought I'd share.


Mess around with the words.

SatOct28 FUCK THIS!

THIS IS THE THIRD TIME I'VE ATTEMPTED UPDATING THIS STUPID FUCKING BLOG.

The first two timesI wrote an essay and the publishing failed, so if you're here to see what I've written, sorry, but tough luck. Those pricks at google who own blogger.com and Picasa2 made a bollocks of my updating this weekend. And I wouldn't mind, but it was really good too. All pictures and jokes, and about the new show, but their site is shit so it's forever lost in cyberspace. Fuckers.

Yes, I'm angry.

TuesOct24 Pics of Chicks...

Pics from Friday night's radio awards show. Here's that photo of me & the lads from the band. Bear in mind I'm over 6'3" - so imagine how tall this pair are:


As you can see, I was a bit tipsy:


Laura and Jo make one kinky couple. They didn't even charge me for the photo:


While I get a good look at Mary's kinky couple. She charged me for the photo.


God, I love girls.

And I'm leaving the show. More later.

SunOct22 Two Fun Weeks...

Well, that was a good couple of weeks off! I was off and home for the first week's holidays and then we went to London for a few days last week. We went to The Tower of London and The London Eye. Boring! It didn't go fast or anything and no-one fell off.

Then on Friday it was the PPI Radio Awards 2006. Jeez - that year went fast, didn't it? No, didn't win. Again. Had a load of great laughs even though some RTÉ chick was pig ignorant to me just as I arrived and they didn't have any extra cabbage at the dinner. I formed a boyband with the bloke who everyone fancies from the Blizzards (no, they don't work in radio) and the leg-end Dan Hegarty from 2FM. I was the singer (obviously) the Blizzards dude was the dancer and Dan was there to look pretty. We could've made it too. I have a photo somewhere.

Had a great time taking the piss out of one station that COMPLETELY LOST THE FUCKIN HEAD screaming and shouting when their station name was either mentioned or shown on screen. Basically, there are a load of awards being given out after a shortlist of nominees is announced. Each nominee is mentioned with their name on the big screen, and each station - which would have a couple of tables each (this station had 42 tables, I think) - would give a cheer of support as their name is read. These eejits FLIPPED THE FUCK OUT!!! "OH MY GOD!!! YEAH!!! I WORK THERE!!! AAAAGH!!! WOOOOHOOO!!!" Their table was next to ours so I joined in every time. They didn't like it. I did.

The reason one must take the piss out of this sort of thing is because a radio station is just like any other place of work. You go there, you do your job and have a laugh as much as you can (and there certainly is more of a chance of having one in a radio station) but you go home and have a life afterward. Not everyone likes all of their co-workers, not everyone has a good working relationship with their boss. Not everyone is über-excited about being there. It's just where you work. So they were just being stupid.

It is possible, of course, that everyone in this particular station SCREAM LIKE BLITHERING IDIOTS whenever they see their station name in writing. Which is probably a pain in the tits for the receptionist every morning.

So, I got home at five on Saturday morning. And got engaged on Saturday night. No, not to JP.

Speaking of whom, he's off for an extra week - in Spain playing golf. No, I'm not joking.

TuesOct10 Hei. Hvordan er De?


Who exactly is this Ray Foley dude who calls hisself The Nation's Favourite Radio Presenter? Ahh, they mean a small nation of deaf elves off the west coast of Norway do they? That nation! To both citizens, I say: "Hei. Hvordan er De?" Not that they can hear me.

I'm in Tuam on 27th & 28th of this month if you're about:


And I'll be in Castlebar the same weekend - more details to follow...

SunOct01 Salidas...

The only Spanish word we know other than ethethethethethe (is that even a word?) is salida. We say it on the show all the time.

So what does it mean?




You learn a new thing every day.

FriSept22 Get Online...

Well, you already are. Hey, while you're here, why not check out the podblast, which is downloadable from iTunes - you can find the full how-to here.

In the latest episode, JP and I talk about... well, fuck all. It's 15 minutes of us trying to think of something to say.

And once you're done doing that, see SecondLife.com - the site I was telling you about in my last post. It's a life-sucking addiction. It's great.

Thanks a million for the birthday wishes yesterday. I got: a t-shirt; a jumper; a watch; a putter set; a steamer; a magazine; a bottle of whiskey; a tin of PAL dog food; a clay pigeon-shooting voucher and three cards. My tightarse brother still has to give me a present.

Finally, all the best to Today FM's earliest bird, who's marrying her bloke today. Happy Wedding, AM Kelly!

Have a good weekend.

WedSept20 What Is He Wearing?

Here I am: making the effort as promised.

Jumping on bandwagon number one, if you haven't seen it yet, check out Johnny Logan and Kaye Styles, with the cover version of Logan's Eurovision classic, "Hold Me Now". I want a white leather tracksuit.

And the second bandwagon is Second Life. I'm sure you've heard the hype about this over the past few days - it's all I've heard since I woke up this morning. Adelle from The Ian Dempsey Breakfast Show team emailed me and hooked me up, and it's quite bloody addictive!

Forget your Bebo and MySpace: Second Life is the future. In fact, it's pobably too much like the future. You need a good, solid broadband connection for it though. I still don't really get it yet, but I'm working on it.
