Mad person: ”If I set up a standing order to come out fortnightly, will it come out every fourteen days?”
Keeping the running spirit alive this morning, with several 8 second bursts intertwined with listening to Freddie telling me that he would rock me, to which I spluttered along and most amazingly, did not get a stitch afterwards!!! Must be improving.
Luckily just as the rain kicked in, Mammy spotted me as she drove by, dropping my little Niece N back to Babybro and Sisinlaw, who took the night off from parenthood to inhale alcohol and chickenwings at one of Dublin’s bigger comedy clubs. I swiftly obtained a lift from Mammy, and brought little Niece N back to the hungover arms of her daddy, and got a cuddle and babykiss for my efforts. I perked up, revived, and strolled back to the apartment for a big wash as I was very sweaty. I was only awoken from my cleaning operations by Hangsandwich appearing at the door with a tupperware box filled with cupcakes, lovingly prepared by Panties this a.m. and driven over, delivered and deposited to her ever grateful friend.
To think I could have stayed living in Australia, with their wine, fine dining and silly accents, when all this awaited me. I was a fool to ever leave.
A very disturbing message from Scarydancer via Lilsister earlier this afternoon, which I THINK was morning for the both of them. Calling from her jollidays house further into the suburbs, she told me that Scarydancer needed me to do him a big favour. Being stretched out on the bed at the time, chilling to a number of Madonna ballads, I was highly uninterested. ”What is it?” I dribbled.
”He needs you to call the fire brigade,” she confirmed ”as his asshole is on fire.”
It seems that too much consumption of three for ten euro beers at the pub near their jollidays house, coupled with a burger n onion rings meal, has given rise to feverish beershites which have caused much pain in the bumbum area for poor Scarydancer. I winced inwardly, as I thought of my own several beer consumption last night, firstly whilst reading the paper and then more at Panties and Hangsandwich’s house, where I was fed an excellent steak and baked potato meal, and got to meet the only other single in Ireland aged over 35, a friend of Hangsandwich, who appears perfectly at ease with his lot. It is a great relief to know that these people actually exist. I DO have my eye on an unsuspecting 36 year old, but naturally I found out he is girlfriended, so I had to put my husbandcatching net away there. Will it ever get an outing? Tune in to find out.
