It never ceases to amaze me the idiots on the road. Was pulled into the hard shoulder near dunkettle yesterday, hazards flashing, so Ger could sort out the smallie who was not being a very good passenger. Himself was sorted in a few minutes, but in those few minutes I kept staring in the rear view and wing mirror expecting the worst. And it nearly fuckin happened.

Some idiot in a land rover driving up the hard shoulder for 3-400 meters trying to get into a lane. And the thing is, this dope was in the lane, then drove into the hard shoulder and attempted to get back into the lane he was already in!!!!! It was like a scene out of Matrix as I watched all this happen in slow motion. As I was about to drive forward at the rate of knots, he suddenly spotted the car and swerved out. Never saw anything like it in my life!!!!!!

If he had hit us, I wouldn’t be writing this right now…unless they have internet in prison, which I’m sure they do. After all they have TV’s and phones don’t they?

Well, then! All normality came finally rushing back last night as I went back on the airwaves after nearly 2 weeks of not being in front of a mic! Reluctantly I went back to work, but hey, that 55 inch 3D TV that Santa is bringing to the baby, ain’t gonna but itself!

It took a few minutes to get into the swing of things, as it usually does after 2 weeks away, but things went well by all accounts! The last 2 weeks have been pretty mind fuckingly brilliant! Besides having the privilege of being next to my wife for the birth of our son, I’ve been doing stuff that, a few years ago, I would have, like a Sunday World reporter, made my excuses and left. But life is funny. It’s hard to explain, actually nigh on impossible to explain, but an internal autopilot was switched on the moment Cameron was born.
airplane11 Projectile shite and wee flying through the air have all been experienced without yours truly (as well as the new Mum) blinking an eye! Again, its like it’s built in as to what to do for every cry and movement. Truly bizarre, and it’s times like this that you get a new and very different perception on life.

The first moment I heard Cameron’s lungs take a gulp of air will always live with me. That moment is forever burned into my mind. As well as that, moments after being born he was in my arms and half opened his eyes when I spoke to him. That too is burned into my mind, forever. The sadness of walking out the door to work is something that is instantly removed once you back in the door and see himself, eyes wide open!
I will never forget any of those moments, and I’ll never forget the amazing staff at the CUMH, who are the real heroes of this city we call home!
The feeling of pure, raw emotion gushing down my face is something that only those who have experienced the wonder of becoming a dad, can understand.

I need to take another moment to acknowledge the huge amount of well wishes that are still constantly coming by various means, online and otherwise. Again, thank you all so much!

Anyway, that’s enough profoundness and all that jazz. Blog resumes to normal humorous tones with bitching and stupid crap this week!

IMG_6518 Thank you to everyone who’s been mailing, texting, tweeting, facebooking over the last 24 hour odd hours, it is so much appreciated by all 3 of us. I’m not going to get around to thanking everyone individually, but I’m sure you’ll understand.

Anyway, this is brief, but I’m officially a Dad!!!! Mum and baby Cameron are flying! Genuinely, the greatest day of our lives and made as stress free as possible by an absolutely amazing, and I do mean an amazing team of people!

Anyway, thank you all. Hopefully next week I’ll get something a bit more substantial on here as  I have so much to say about a journey that I could never have imagined being so wonderful, amazing and absolutely EPIC!!!!!

Ok, not the band, but her lady ship or whatever, has been snapped wearing 3D glasses on a tour of Pinewood Studios (via Twitter) – If you look closely you can see their shapeshifter Lizard eyes or something. I’ll have to ask David Icke!

Well, then the blog is starting to slow down as I’m not too far away from taking holidays…and paternity leave! Thanks for all the kind words over the last while, and the blog will have the bambino info as it happens…sorta!

This be the week for action, but more than likely the main event will be next week..or maybe slightly later.

So the mind fucking continues, especially on the drive home after the show, where the enormity of the situation hits home time and time again. And by Jaysus does it hit home! On Sunday night, as a million thoughts raced through my head, it felt like Mike Tyson hitting me with a locomotive! But I’m really looking forward to the whole thing and as usual will attempt to put nerves to one side and try and be the best supporting husband and dad I can be! I’ve been in denial for a bit, but now, this week the denial is now only a river in Egypt!

As I begin to type something onto the screen I have no idea where this blog post is going!! I need to go see Shrek 4 later on, but I have no great deal of will to do so, but I have to! I also need to make a breakfast, but can’t be arsed with that either.

That said, I’ve been slaving away since around 10ish this morning, sitting in front of a monitor, naked, punching keys and so forth. Yesterday I spent a bit of time with Crackdown 2, which I’ll bang on about tonight and I also horsed into Red Dead Redemption, which I’ll no doubt bang on about again tonight!

So if you’ve read this far, bless you, you poor crater…I thought I heard a sneeze.

As I said, I have no idea where this blog post will go so before I start revealing myself, although I am clothed now, sorta. I’m gonna shoot off. Oh Christ, the innuendo is far too much. And speaking of far too much, well…era….feck it!!!!!

And yes, upon reading back, this posting does exhibit signs of madness! And speaking of madness…
