Just before I was heading to bed, Dad pops down to take a look at the alarm. I’m their sitting on toilet doing my business when he rings the doorbell. And says I to myself, “crap” the +Inflatables Stanescu. Well I can tell you this much, I never got off the toilet as quick as I did for the Inflatables. Cause the last time he had an issue by means of slashing em. So I hid the majority in the BAthroom and the rest under the covers. There was one thou however that he still can’t get around it haha with his face. hehehe.
So after Dad left, I checked my mail of which one was Specsavers and Sky. I knew what Sky was which is a bill increase. Nothing’s new in that department. ahhaah. However when I read further, I was delighted to learn that the RTE Player is to come to Sky’s Catch Up TV Service which I get free as part of my subscription. I was more than delighted. LIke I won’t be recording RTE News or RTE Shows anymore. I just download and Record. Yeahhhhhhhhh happy dayssss.
Well after a restless night, but I must say I did get a few hours wink alrite. hahhaa with the alarm still going off. haahha, I got up for today’s meetup ie Cornucopia(Review here) with the Vegetarian Society of Ireland. I used maps to see where it would take me. So I followed it, well I never, I was taken to places which is actually illegals ie illegal turns. It was a great meetup. hehehe. I met up with a few ladies who were there when I arrived. heehheh. On the way, I came across a child and his mother. There was a flace linen curtain and a Vase in front. The Vase being glass by the looks of it. The child was there pulling at the curtain, and I got the fright of me like thinking he’d knock down the vase. As I was going down to get my food I came across Ursula Halligan from TV3. She came out gay a few months ago before this years Historic Same Sex Referendum. She is TV3’s Political Correspondent in TV3 News. So I got talking to a few of the women, She was telling me that she lives in MAnchester and is home for the week or something. So I asked if she was going to Manchester Pride or if she’s ever been or something. She said “I ain’t gay”. I said ya don’t’ have to be gay. Just like ya don’t have to be a vegetarian to eat vegetarian. So long as you’re NOT against Gay people etc., Then I was about to head off, when I got talking to Vinny, of which I realsie he was actually Albanian, well who knew. hahaah. I then was asked by Gerard where I Was from, ie he was keen on my accent, So I dubbed him Accentology the study of accents. haahah. Then we all agree that the prices are exorbitant. So I was explained thou which obviously one factor is the location ie Grafton St, where Rent prices are quite high and another of which I learned was that the food is cooked at 40C, so to keep the ntirietnwts instead of loosing them. Gerard whom I was chatting too BEFORE going home was talkign abotu PUppy Famrs.I referred hims to NARA and ARAN. ARAN has been around for several years. He was saying there;’s hundreds of them. I said ARAN can help. His arguement was that its far too much. Mine was ya have to inject a virus. To do so ARAN being the virus, it will evnetually pull em all down. Other topics discucessed were Remembering our school days. I did Plough and hte Stars for LEaveing Cert and Home ALone for Junior Cert
Well very much positive than the previous days. heheheh. As I didn’t sleep a wink whatsoever the previous night, I was a bit groggy to a certain degree. heeheheh
I had since gotten a voicemail from Mom saying we’d be going out for dinner in the National Botanic Gardens(Review here). We headed on out. Afterwards, we came back for a cuppa. I was between TWO minds. WHETHER to go to Ailish n Noel’s for Halloween OR to the folks for Halloween. The fact that I had seen Mom n Dad I was half thinking going to Ailish n Noel. However as I had seen them already last week, what would we talk about. ahahaha. Then also I was WANTING to celebrate Halloween with a Barn Brack. haahah. As there was no Brack with Mom n Dad, I decided to head to them. ANd then again I hadn’t texted Noel as I hadn’t his number whatsoever.
So to make a long story short, I decided to head to Mom n Dads with Barnbrack. BUT before all that, I was to meet Eoin n Clan ie the Dublin Cineworld Craicheads for to see Spectre(Review here). So I chatted with them all. I mistaken a guy whom I understood to be dressed up as a Witch, so instead he dressed up as a cowboy. hahaah.
So after the cinema, I headed on back up to Mom n Dad’s. As I couldn’t find a Vegan BRack 😦 I just got any brack.
Not bad a day today. The weather being very halloweeny Autumny feeling. Yep there’s the Georgian coming out. The reason I say this is, although I love the summer relating to me wearing shorts, others have issues with me wearing it. I don’t know why but it does bother me. So with the Wintery feeling and Autumnal yeah love it. hahaah.
So before going to bed, I couldn’t’ find my sex phone to go and put the alarm on for me to get up for. So instead, I used my Sammy and Sammy 2 phones to ensure I get up. Then shortly before i actually got up, I realised but what happens when the sex phone goes off ie the Alarm from yesterday. Then I’ll be able to locate it. heheehh. I was delighted.
So then I got up and then headed with my head held high as I was keen on learning the Bees and Veganism. LIke what…. So I was to meet the Dublin Animals Rights Group for to see a screening of Vanishing Bees. I was quite alarmed to learn a few items. Although the film focused on UK, USA(mainly) and Italy. In Ireland the Government launched a Pollination Plan last week, ensuring the survival of the Bees. So I was keen to learn how does this actually help. In the film, I was surprised to learn that my beloved WAtermelon cannot be because of the survival or the Vanishing of the BEes. Who’d have thought or thunk it. hahaha. Various theories are said to have contributed to the vanishing. One was being the interviewee being a smartass blamed it on RUssia. But the real culprit is actually Pesticide. Now while Pesticide is a good thing for the plants and crops to get rid of insects that are poisonous or whatever, the bees thou however actually “affects their nervous system, and orientation” and hence cannot find their way back to the hive. Then I got thinking but what happens if the pesticide has been tested on animals, how does it make the Apples or whatever the crop is make it vegan then. …
Not bad a day today. hehehe. I do have to admit thou with the letter that I got from the State, that they require further proof of residencey for the Application of Naturalisation to proceed. So as such I was nervous as hell as to whether or not to tell my folks about further documentation required. At one stage, I was not gonna bother. THen at another, I was not go through Mom n Dad and to use Internet Cafés. But more so I was simply gonna chicken out.
I headed to me sis for a visit. Then onto Mom n Dad’s for to tell em about the letter. I was so nervous, it was unreal. hahaha. When I arrived, Mom was there but Dad no. As time was not on my side, as I had a meetup to go to. But getting back to this thou, I waited impatiently for Dad. He was next door seeing his neighbor, So Mom n I chatted. She was telling me a clip she saw on TV whereby there’s a board person in a meeting and excuses himself to go to the gents. He headed there, not realising the microphone was still on he let off a loud fart, and the meeting board guys were listening in on this, and got such a fit of laughing. ahahah. Twas humorous listening to it. hahaha. Then along came Dad. So I came out with it, abruptly. I’ve learned if I’m nervous NOT to stutter or pause, just come out and say it. Which I first asked if they were around on Saturday afternoon. They said they were. And they asked why, so I just put the Letter in their faces. Well there expressions was priceless, then just before I headed to the film, I most certainly NOT prepared what happened next. My Dad received a letter from the Water Conservation Grant. He wanted to apply or it. Now while granted it was understandable that the site had asked him to submit a WRITTEN application. He showed me his so called “WRITTEN” application. I was gobsmacked what he had produced. He basically wrote out the application of his own accord instead of filling out the application form like you would normally would. He actually submitted the application and the crowd of shower sent it back stating it was not acceptable. I had said in all my 31 years living on this planet, I have never come across a person submitting HIS own written application. I actually felt for him, and to this day, I still do.
So then I quickly cycled down to the meetup group Dublin Social Life where they were going to see Sicario. I was collecting my ticket. To do that I would have to enter my Booking Reference NUmber. So as I was using my cell to bring up my Gmail app to look it up. I then saw an option for me to collect my ticket via Unlimited Card. I was delighted with that. It works in the same way as a Credit Card. In that if you booked your ticket with a Credit Card, the ticket prints off automatically. As I was late for the film, let alone the group, I shan’t be publishing a film review for the film period. It’s not what I was expecting. I looked everywhere for the group. THey clearly have either people issues or something, cause I was asking around are they Dublin Social Mixer meetup group they insisted no they weren’t.
As I didn’t sleep to well with my upset stomach full of nerves and then throughout the day, I was drinking green tea for the night when I came back.
The Web Summit 2015 will be the last one to be held in Dublin, Ireland. It has been citied that the reason being is lack of infrastructure. ie last year when the WiFi went down. And another year HOtels taking advantage by charging a bomb.
