Well today was quite a day. haha
I did my usual errands I do on a Tuesday. hahaahah. hehehe.
My first port of call was to get my dosh before it closed. I was there struggling with my bike and the laundry AND my trousers(which kept falling due to my rapid weight loss – hahaah). I’ve noticed recently that I can’t do anything with my right hand anymore. With a JO(jerkoff), nope won’t do the work. Basically I have to use the left for everything, for JO’s for walking my bike even carry bags etc.,
So moving on I then dropped the Laundry into Clean Freaks, which was quite unusual. By that I mean that the price is lower, and I got a text off them stating that there are “two items” and then the woman told me that it would be available on Friday, which is interesting. hahaah.
I then headed onto the bank did my business. Unusually I didn’t have enough for to go and do my normal weekly bill payments. So I looked up what “robbed” my money. hahaah. It was actually Electric Ireland and Sky.
So then I moved onto my grocery weekly of SmallChanges. hahaah. I asked Peadar, why the taste of one of the TOmato Sauce was so “boring” or Bland. I knew about NO Added sugar or salt, but seriously? So he told me that its JUST tomatoes. Well the laugh I got. I paid about €2 or €3 for jst “friggin tomatoes” as I said on the way home. hahaha. It was priceless.
So while transferring files for my sis’ visit, I took a shower. Then headed to my sis. On the way, I was looking for a Grater where I can grate cheese. hahaah. However the manners of a pig in Centra didn’t have any. hahaha. So I arrived and we looked at TV. I brought up how come Maureen remembers that MEMORABLE day of when I had Mom, Dad and Maureen and of course my sis for a Cuppa and a Apple PIe or something. We sat around my table. Then my depression hit. And hence my place is NOT suitable for visitors anymore. Then the other day I was onto Maureen by means of a phonecall, and she told me of the dream. I can’t for the life understand why she’s so obsessed with that particular day. ahhaah. Then my sis asked when would I be going up to the folks. And I said I can’t go up freely to Mom n Dad’s as I’m no longer welcome to visit, but to FOOD, thats’ all I get.
I was interested in finding out what party the current Dublin Lord’s Mayor(ess) is ie Críona Ní Dhálaigh, I kinda knew she was a member of Sinn Féinn, however One thing I never expected thou that Sinn Féin’s FOUNDER is Arthur Griffith. Where I know that name is that the avenue I was reared on ie the street is known as Griffith Ave., I was told that the avenue is named after Arthur Griffith. Now one asks, WHY??? like did he live there, or fight etc., etc.,
It has been announced that Paul O’Connell, has been ruled out of teh Rugby World Cup. This is his last Rugby International. Ie he’s retiring forcefully due to a string injury

Today was a quiet day, Literally!!!. hahaha
I got a voicemail of to get a takeout for both my sis and I. I went to Tasty Gardens, which is up the road from me. heheeh. The takeout was lovely. Chips was alrite. The Vegetable Fried Rice, was exquisite. While eating my sis noted that the vegetable which I normally give to her wasn’t present. So I was even more than delighted. heheh
Like I said, nothing much was done. hahaah. Both my sis and I were looking at Everybody Loves Raymond for the night.
It was my intention to meet up with Maureen today. Now considering I wouldn’t have slept or whatever. This was my plan in terms of sleep. I would stay awake and look at TV etc., after the sleep out and then head to my sis etc., Then meet up with Maureen THEN go to bed to catch up on lost sleep. However it wasn’t to be, as I was physically exhausted from the Mental Health protest/march as I was falling asleep at the computer while looking at the TV after I came home from the sleep out. aka the News. hahaha. So instead I went to sleep for a few hours last night and then to my sis, as per schedule. So I cancelled Maudy yesterday and I’ll be seeing her on Thurs.
So it’ll be a TV Day as per norm. hahaha
Maureen popped down with some grub,, Was great to see her. heheeheh. She thought my hair was curly. I just said that my sis did it up for me last night. hahaah. Great laugh.
While looking at One Foot in the Grave and seeing Richard Wilson who plays Victor Meldrew, I looked him up to see what’s he up to . heheheh. Then I found not only is he for gay rights, but that he came out as gay a few years ago back in ’13. I never knew. hahaah.
My sis came down for some downloading. Then who should I see on the TV on Cheers, but none other than Senator John Kerry MA, who NOW is Foreign Secretary for the United States. I am gobsmacked.
So first I find out Richard Wilson who played Victor Meldrew came out Gay, and now Senator John KErry was a special appearance in Cheers. Wow, what a night so far. haahaahh
