Today, as I had no plans of going out, I decided to stay up a bit and do a bit of recording. hahah.
I was looking at the Dubliners Vicar St concert. Well by George did it bring some fond memories, some painful but fond. Depending. Now what I mean by that is, that I was singing a song, and I dedicated it to Martin Mulligan(Kathleen’s hubbie). Had rush thoughts of Michael Doherty looking at my video on Youtube, and making a mockery of while passing it around to others on New Years Eve kidna. How he gets hold of it is, that I email it to him, WHICH I will be doing so, eitherway. hahaha.
The other was after Sabrina, was a music video from Lady Gaga – Bad Romance. Now again more painful memories came back as I was singing the song, the Take 2, ahahah. Which as I explained in the video that my ex and I were picking “our song” etc., etc.,
Going to bed last night, was upsetting for me, as I couldn’t for the life of me understand why my cell ain’t charging. All I remember was that it fell, a few yards if even that. From the window ledge to the bed. So its just baffling, why all of a sudden. Like I was telling my sis, today that it took 12hrs and half hours and it NOT at 100% only at 85%. So I just don’t get it it. And it even now decharges rapidly. So something is defo not right. As I said as well, Georgian and BAtterys don’t fit in the same sentence. My sis came down to me for to download thinking I would be up and about. I was due to do errands. I hadn’t slept too bad. I was teary for a few hrs, with the above battery problem. So afterwards, I said I’ll have to use my birthday money AGAIN on my battery. So I got up at half 5, obviously too late for Dole. So I just left it at that looked at Everbody Loves Raymond episode of where the clan go to Italy. Bringing great memories of Italy to us. hehehe

Apple’s Music streaming service Apple Music has gone live today. Apple will offer users free for 3 months. After 3 months, you are charged $9.99. You would be streaming the music instead of downloading. For me personally I’d rather download the music so, that I can keep the music. That said Apple Music does offer you a chance to “keep them offline for playback later”.
As I was passing Barneys pub, on the way to meet O’ Farrell in Ballsbridge Hotel, I remember I met Séamus in there with the group 20Somethings meeting a religious pilgrimage, whereby we met there to discuss a pilgrimage to Jerusalem. Mom understandably forbade me to go there with the conflict that was ongoing at the time.
Well what a day it turned out to be. After a historic vote, Ireland voted in favor of Marriage Equality. Citizens came home in their droves from all over the world to cast their vote that they are elegible. It was history in the making. I mean like IReland is the only country who voted by Popular Vote whcih means that Citizens of the country vote for a change to the Constitution ie Bunreacht na hÉireann. Over 1m citizens voted in favor of Marriage Equality. It was passed by a landslide. Vincent Brown himself had a special results show Live in the George. Or as he puts “iconic” gay bar. As such it was my intention to go their. Then onto Dublin Castle. However I had gone to bed too late, So I wasn’t able to get out. So I instead planned on going to Mom and Dad’s to celebrate with the Eurovision. However they themselves were in from Calum’s First Holy Communion in Wexford. I headed on afterwards to the George for the Eurovision. Never expected such crowds. Like it was described as “Four Paddy’s Day”. So I then headed to O’ Farrell where I was to meet Daniel whom I hadn’t seen since the Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat(Review here). So all in all, we couldn’t do anything. We were basically me anyways walking around for 3hrs. I was paying for it with my feet, and still am. I had thought about the Boilerhouse, but I’d need the cash for Dad’s Father’s Day gift or clothes in Penny’s. I then headed home and did the Eurovision Night on my TV. hahaah
Today, was a quiet day. I was suppose to head onto a meetup, in particular the Vegetarian Meetup in Milanos. Like the other day, I was suppose to go to Umi Falaefel, but didn’t bother. I of course cancelled the last minute well in this case.
So I just stayed on in bed. In the middle of the hibernation, I got up for a leak and making room on my box.
Then I got back to sleep and had the following dream.
Am with a group of people. We head into a restaurant. I keep looking at a waiter. He’s so brazen. I go to pay .15c and I hand over €1. He gives me no change. I then am writing a review. Clearly it’d be a terrible review I’d be writing.
The Budget 2015 “hangover” has occurred. As traditionally, both Ministers for Finance and Public Expenditure(Noonan and Howlin respectively) took to the airwaves on RTE’s Seán Ó Rourke to listen to the public on Radio. There has also been confusion in yesterday’s Budget announcement whereby Social Welfare recipients and Tax Payers receive €100 off their Water Bill per year and Tax Credits respectively. It was my understanding yesterday, that EVERY single Social Welfare recipient despite there allowance, will receive it. However it has come to my attention that this is NOT the case. Those on the Disability Allowance, Fuel Allowance and obviously if you have the Household Benefits Package will receive. Jobsekker Allowance, and Jobseekers Benefits will NOT be eligible to receive the Water Allowance. This has also come tot he Tax Credits. In order to receive Tax Credit on your Water Bill, you MUST pay the bill, then apply to your local Tax Office and then get the amount off your NEXT bill. The Government will reassure and if needs be change a few things when the Finance Bill comes into force.
U2’s Bono has apologized to iTunes for their latest single that was sent to ALL iTunes users. SOme wanted the single BUT others DID NOT.
Serbia and Albania has been charged by UEFA for a Political motivated brawl. Both countries got into a brawl when a flag bearing a “Indigenous” was lowered. A Serbian player took it down. Albania team players were against this, and got into a fist fighting. Serbia have never gotten over the Independence of Kosovo back in ’08.
Well I eventually got up. I cleaned myself up. Then shortly as I had to head to Lidls to get myself some slippers.
So that was my first port of call. It was my intention to do my archival shopping as I like to call it. hahaha. So I first headed into Lidls, then I realsied that the slippers were actually in Aldi. I mistaken this. So I just got OJ. While here, I noticed while at the stalls, that there was a customer asking questions about a product to the security guy. Well as I said to myself, the manners of a pig. The mouth of him. More so the body language. While on the way to LIdls, I called into US Shop. I came across a deal for €15.More or less what Lidls would be charging for shoes. I had guessed that the sales person was an American. She’s actually from Tampa in Florida.
Then I headed onto Aldi. This was the place, that I was spoz to get the slippers. When I was lining up for to pay for the slippers, a Filipino couple offered me there place ahead of them, as I was just getting one thing, and they were doing a large shopping. Twas really nice of em to be honest. So I thank you, them.
On the way to Tescos, I encountered a guy playing “Somewhere, my Love” on the flute. I beautiful rendition of an Italian Classic. Reminded me of the wonderful Holiday, in Lake Garda with the family. The best holiday I ever had with the family. Then onto Tescos, I went to get some milk and more OJ. Oh boi, love me some OJ. heheeh.
I then headed onto the Outhouse, where I always feel safe and be myself. heheeh. I bumped into Mike, David and Brendan O’ F. I then introduced myself to a guy Gar, who has been there and I’ve seen in in the past, but never got his name. So when I was getting something, I got talking to Mike. I had said some phrase or rather, and he then said something I don’t think Ros na Run would have such language or whatever. Then we got talking about Gays in Soaps. Was quite intriguing it was. I reminded him that there is a gay male in Ros na Run currently, but he don’t have any storyline currently. Although back in the late 90s, they had 2 gay characters. And he said that he actually remembers his Mom talking about it. Likewise in Fair City. There was 2 gay males back in the apparently late ’80s. Now obviously I had seen this. But just couldn’t remember the year. As it happens, it was in the time, I was in the Romanian Orphanage. So then I got my stuff, and headed onto the group. We were chatting and chatting. And told him my true inspiration of the HIV guy, I was chatting on Grindr. David was most intrigued. And as it happens, was possibly the same guy he was chatting to. As I said throughout the night, Such a small world. I then was intrigued with David’s saying that a guy being straight is a turn on. I was quite intrigued by this. And then thought to myself, but sure, I see em all the time, and look at em. So yeah I quite agree with him. heehe
So then Brendan and I headed onto the cinema to see The Guest(Review here). On the way to the screen, the security guy, helped me bring my bags to the screen. Such a nice guy. heehehe. So then afterwards, I struggled with heading on home with heavy bags of the shopping. I had just past the pub Meaghers and to my surprise one of the customers who was smoking said “If i had been fucked out”. I said “Oh, Lord no”. Then I passed the new Chinese name at least beside the pub. It has changed names twice. heeheh.
America remembers Sept 11th 2001. 13yrs ago today America was under attack.. 2 Plains were hijacked and crashed into the the Twin Towers aka World Trade Center. America was completely UNPREPARED. Another Plain was hijacked and set for the Pentagon of which it was het. Then there was a 4th one I think it was going to the White House or Congress, I can’t quite recall. The plain being hijacked, was actually intercepted by passengers aboard. The Plain crashed in a field in Pennsylvania.
The Jaws character who was the villain in two Bond Films has died at the age 75.
Following are the dreams I had last night.
WE’re marching down O’ Connell St., Then I encounter trouble with opening my Quorn Ham. So I ask someone. When they tell me cool. Then me and my buddy is with me in the Secret Garden. It’s circular in shape with plants everywhere. However magic arises when my buddy presses something. Then I’m in trouble when dandelions etc are trying to eat me. So my friend attacks the guy who is controlling the giant. My friend defeats him and in turn the giant, falls over the ledge. I then strip down as it’s a nudist colony. However I see a cute guy from far and wide in swim trunks with some girl. Now funny thing is this particular place, ie the Circular Secret Garden, I have had this particular dream or place before in the past.
I then eventually got up. I was just gonna stay on. However I wanted to get Fair City as there’s a gay character coming out. And I didn’t want to miss it. So I started to get ready. I was between of not bothering with Lidls or not. If I miss the Inflatable ball, big whoops etc., I had forgotten to get up for 7am as I explained in a previous entry that I shall be getting up or staying up for Lidl or Aldi. Well this morning I actually had forgotten.
So onwards and upwards to errands. My first was to get a second key cut for my sis, as she has since lost my original key that I copied for her. So I went into Ryan’s Hardware. I had my phone positioned so that the clerk could see my photo I had on Swarm(Formerly Foursquare). I was changing my Profile PIc. He complimented nicely on it. I was well chuffed.
So then I went onto Drumcondra Credit Union to get a €100 quid for the Lidls items. While there, I noted on my received that my Irish name ie George was on my Account. So I asked that I changed it to my Romanian name. ie Georgian.
Then I went back home to my gaf, to free up some space, as this time, I wanted to get the news, again for the same reason that my box was low. Actually to zilch.
So I set about again to get my grub in Lilds. I got my stuff. TO my surprise, I was actually surprised that the stuff I wanted was there. I got the last two items, of the Deep Fat Fryer. and the Inflatable Balls ie the Exercise Maps.
It was my intention to go and see Lucy and some other movie, of which I cannot remember. Lucy was beginning at half 6. However, as I was starving me guts, I headed to the Outhouse. Initially it was for just a quickie ie cuppa green tea. I encountered Dave. (Not the guy behind the counter). Hes a lovely guy. WE chatted for a bit. Then I also encountered Ronan. Hadn’t seen him in ages. The last time I had seen Ronan was for Guardian’s of the Galaxy(Review here) back in mid August. So the three of us chatted amongst each other. Twas great. I was getting a pot of tea for Dave. While getting milk for the tea, Mike who was behing the counter, was figuring out why he wasn’t getting any milk out of the machine. Well when he realsied what the true extent was, I got the fits of laughing. The carton of milk was inside the machine where the milk is suppose to come out of. It was so funny. Then I headed on to get ready for the next showing of Lucy for 8pm. Shortly before doing so, I was just about heading out to get ready, when I got enticed to a great but sad topic. The topic being HIV JUDGMENTAL people. MY friend Dave told me that when he was at Men’s Night last that he was totally disgusted with how the gays, the men were being totally judgmental towards HIV. I can clearly relate. While I don’t have HIV, I have its next neighbor the Hepatitis B. I was completely intrigued. And in that I learned that with the meds, that you must take them like a religion. His attitude towards the HIV, is that he DON’t tell for casual or SEX partners BUT for RELATIONSHIP yes, a biggie. I was quite intrigued, and pondered to myself, should I do this. Cause If I NEVER told anyone, about my Hepatitis, that I would have buckets of sex all the time. But I was advised that I let my partners know in advanced. With his HIV he takes meds every single day. He told me that at one stage being with HIV you had a 50% chance of living. These days, over 90% of living a perfectly naturally healthy life. He also told me that if he weren’t to take the meds, that he would be in critical condition. You see that’s what the world needs. A guy like Dave here. To EDUCATE gays and guys alike. Like I have been preaching this continuously over the years. We need a guy like Dave to educate us all. I recently myself said to a guy on Bender, to go an educate himself. So then at Men’s Night, Dave also reveled something startling, in that a VERY CLOSE friend of mine, had said something along the lines that HIV is diseased etc., etc., in other words he was being judgmental. I was so surprised to hear of such. And still can’t.
So Brendan Searson came along, and was joined by us. However as I was in a hurry for the film, I popped along to the cinema, however I was too late. So I looked at the time for the next time for Into the Storm(Review here). And it wasn’t for another hour and a half, at Half 9. So I headed back into the Outhouse. And had more cuppa teas and a sandwich etc.,
So then I bumped into another “Friend”. He was meeting some guy for what was supposedly for a date or whatever, the guy invited him to his place. Where I would have expected to meet in a public place like Waterford City or Dublin or whatever. Well I yet got into another fit, when I put the idea of him showing the ropes of Waterford City. I instead got the fits of the guy showing his privates as a tour of Waterford city.
SO then after such a wonderful time, at the Outhouse, I headed onto the cinema to see Into the Storm. I had 2 bags from the Lidls shopping. A staff member of whom I don’t recognsie asked if I needed help in bringing them to the screen. Come to think of it, another member of staff again whom I don’t recognsie also asked gave the suggestion that I didn’t want to distub anyone. She asked when getting a ticket, what seating would I like. I said middle of the middle. However she suggested perhaps one where you wouldn’t be distubing anyone. I was quite bemused and well chuffed.
Oh what a night it it was hahaha.To think I was gonna miss such a great night. I think not. haahahah
