Not bad a day huh. More so not that busy. hahaahah. I got up with a view of seeing my sis as per our usual schedule. heheheh. I then transferred a few Golden Girls episodes for my sis to watch together.

I then headed to see her. We had a few cups of tea of which mine consists of Tea, Black Tea, Coffee and then Green Tea and whilest having the teas the chats and plenny of Golden Girls. hahaah. Was most enjoyable.

I brought along my old cell phone aka Sammy. I had charged it overnight. I have decided that I use it for GPS reasons, ie when I want to use it for Fitness Apps etc., or for finding my way around the city. As my current Sammy 2, doesn’t seam to last battery wise. So I was looking at it, bringing plenny of memories of it. hahaah. I will be Rooting it for the first time. Before that thou, I wanna record the apps that I have on it thou. heheeh

I then was uploading my babes: Inflatables to the following Social Media Accounts. hahaha.

As part of my email ritual, one of them was an article on MakeTechEasier. There was a poll which asked: Should Microsoft kill Windows XP and Be Put out of its Misery. Surprisingly 70% wanted it kept. hahhha. It goes to show you, OLDies like myself love old OSs. I remember the days of Windows 95, more so my fave was Windows 98. Then along came Windows XP. I didn’t really like WIndows Vista. Windows 7 was lovely. Then Windows 8, which appeared on my Dell Lappy, until Dell ripped me off last year, when they refused to help me out on Support. Following are the results of the poll

Last week Facebook announced that its to enable an “emptathy” style button as qouoted from Zuckerburg. As Zuckerburg describes if anyone psots an upsetting post, such as a death etc., etc., or a Natural Disaster, Facebook is to introduce a button wherey Users will be able to agree with the post in question. So e.g if someone dies, you wouldn’t acutally “Like” the post. So Facebook will be sorting this out. Following is a poll carried out on the Facebook button.

Q. What do you think of Facebook’s planned “Dislike” button?

  • A “Dislike” button is something I’ve been wanting for awhile. (40%, 40 Votes)(I voted for this option)

  • This change will only bring confusion to something that works well. (13%)
  • It will turn out like Reddit no matter what they say. (10%)
  • It won’t change the way Facebook works. (3%)

Diary 4th September 2014

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

Diary 2nd September 2014

Well after some freaky dream yesterday, I  set about my normal errands for the day. Firstly thou, I was listening and looking at the Music Videos for a few days.

So then afterwards, I headed on towards to get my payment.

Then I headed to Tescos to get my batchful of Bread.

So then I headed to my Aunty(Nun) who is minding my folks house as they’s away atm. We chatted for a minutes. I had told her, that if a rape victim goes back to her attacker, does NOT mean she gets raped again. No one has a right to be raped again, just because she goes back to the attacker. So then afterwards, she was very disappointed to learn that I don’t take vegetables, despite me being a vegetarian. Kinda ironic alrite. Eitherway, I just don’t.

So then I headed onto me sis. We chatted and looked at TV. One of the items we chatted about was when I brought up my Mom. How I brought her up was I asked my sis if I had a brother. As when I was tagging someone on my FB, obv my Mom came up BUT anotehr guy came up in the search. Says I to meslef, do I have a bro. As It happens, I don’t. She did reveal taht I do indeed have a sis, BUT (get this) WIHTIN wedlock.. That means that my Mom had her daughgrer WITHIN marraige. And me OUTSIDE. I asked when does she think my MOm had me, BEFORE or AFTER. I was qutie taken aback when my sis AFTER. SO that means, my sis came, then me. And then perahps more(I ain’t sure). Bottomline, She CHEATED on my step father. So then I asked the fact that I caught my ex RED HANDED last Saturday, had my ex cheating on me AND my mom cheating on the step father ANY CONNECTION whatsoever, no surprise OF COURSE not. hahaha

So then after my sis, I headed onto Nicos’. Now as per my review, they didn’t have the gloves. As per expected. Aww well, they will soon enough I’d say.

I had forgotten to mention that the loud noise I heard last Saturday, was actually to do with the Croke Park Classic. My Dad told me this on the Sunday ie the next day.

She released a report previous to today’s of the Romanian’s Roma community, in which 2 children were taken off them, for fear of the child NOT being the parents children, when of course it was.

A report for iOS V Android when it comes to viewing Porn on your mobile device has resulted that iOS rules this field. This is kinda a surprise. Considering Android is MORE customizable.

Beside iOS is far to restrictive for me anyways.
