Fuck me, I will never, ever, EVER eat cheese before leaba time again. How the listeners got on, or if they even survived I don’t know! But will find out tonight from 9pm!
Wondering whats going on? Basically I asked aload of people to munch down a big load of cheese before they went to bed. Then, recall the madness, if any, that happened, nightmare style!

This weeks Movie Bit podcast is now available to download. Reviews include Prince of Persia and Cop Out. Vic whinges about SATC 2 and plenty more! Grab it here.
Well after a few days off I went back to the stone that grinds last night. Firstly, cheers all for the birthday greetings, much appreciated.
The week off, well 3 days to be precise, flew. Unfortunately, the flight wasn’t prolonged by any Ash clouds or what not. So now, I’m moaning about how I didn’t do anything and couldn’t switch off. But isn’t that what holidays are all about. Moaning. Ok maybe not…. That said though, I did build a crib, cut the grass and erect a Gazebo. In hindsight, maybe I was to harsh with my earlier comments.
On the Gazebo front, it’s one of these pop up yokes, which it does pop up, but not without a small army to help out with the popping. In further Gazebo news, it will rain this week. God forbid the tradition, of me purchasing anything for the garden and then it rains for the rest of the year, would be broken. So when you see rain later today, or tomorrow or whatnot, it’s my fault.
I did manage to stare at a few movies over the holidays, along the lines of Eastern Promises, Man on Wire and Valhalla Rising to name but 3. Valhalla Rising is great if you like looking at mists. The whole bloody movie is surrounded in a constant mist, in between the occasional neck break and blood oozing.
As for not switching off, I can attrib that to a number of things, none which really make any sense, so I won’t bother. I’m one of these freaks that isn’t entirely comfortable doing absolutely nothing, hence I was losing my mind during the week. But now I’m back to doing stuff again, and I’m not happy either. By tomorrow or the next day, I expect to be back to my full workaholic self, which I know in some way is a big, epic fail!

Right, tis me birthday tomorrow (18th) and I’m taking a few days off before the joy and madness of a bambino take over or old age explodes my mind. So the blog will be on a major go slow over the next few days.
I’ve promised to disconnect from the digital world, but ya never know! Either way all will return to normal, here at least anyway, on Monday 24th of May!

Just a quick word of huge thanks to everybody who listens to the show! Great day for ratings for RedFM yesterday and Cork Talks Back to boot. I won’t bore you with the specifics, but CTB is the number 1 show for under 35s at night with huge increases in Market Share and Reach!
As a reward, the powers that be decided, for work well done, that we should all only got 15 lashes today. Instead of the usual 30 with a splintery hurley.
Anyways, nice wan…seriously!

It’s been an interesting weekend to say the least. Friday night was spent eating and drinking far too much in Eleven West as part of Dine in Cork week. And after a few hours sleep we hit the road to the new River Lee Hotel on Western Road for our anti natal class.
From 10am until 545pm we sat and listened and yours truly changed his first nappy, in front of a bunch of strangers. Now, I’ve never changed a nappy or diaper (for the Americans reading) in my life. I’ve always found some excuse to get away from it, and in any case I think it’s the parents job to deal with their kids shit and piss. So I all too quickly volunteered to do a nappy change on a doll baby.
I stood there like a fool waiting for instructions, which in fairness the mid wife wanted me to do it myself. Anyway, nappy opened and left opened. Then I was instructed to clean the doll. My brain was clanking away thinking “Sure its a fuckin doll, whats there to clean. You’ll look like a right tool doing some invisible cleaning!”. But then, lo and behold when I pulled the nappy back, it was full of shit! I shit you not! Time slowed down as I tried to process the whole thing. I was then informed that the actual shit was Marmite. Trying to make light of the situation I said “Does anyone want to taste it to check” much to the dismay of everyone there. So if you thought you had a shitty weekend, think again!
Incidentally, I will never eat Marmite again! Sorry Marmite, but its not as if we were best friends anyway!

Jesus, this has been the worst week for blog updates in quite some time. (Not if your reading the Movie Bit blog I hear). For a million and one reasons that I can’t be arsed going into!
Anyway, the latest podcast is now available on iTunes so grab the bits while there fresh out my oven. Includes Gay parents amongst other bits from during the week!
Other than all of that, my back was fucked during the week, severely. At one point I couldn’t walk and while it has loosened to something resembling normality, it’s still a wee bit tender!
In other news, someone called me a cunt via text last night. Oh how I laughed! Thanks for that!
Y’all have a nice weekend now, ya hear!

On a serious note…
One of our blind Guide Dogs Owners has lost her guide dog Mon 3rd May. The dog, a female Golden Retriever, aged 2 yrs, went missing from her garden at the Powdermills area of Ballincollig at around 10am. If anyone has any information please call Irish Guide Dogs on 1850 506300 or Ken on 0868369586.
Hopefully we can reunite the owner and her dog quickly. The lady in question is, understandably, very distraught.
The dog is micro-chipped but, unfortunately, was not wearing her official Guide Dog medallion at the time.
