Shorts

Graeme McDowell looks like a fat Patrick Dempsey.

Six euro for a bottle of Heineken in a plush Dublin city centre hotel on Saturday night. A wedding. Happily we drank our way through the fiscal pain, surely a metaphor for our country's current plight? That was a rhetorical question.

We watched 'Office Space' instead of the football last night. No regrets. Milton (Stephen Root) deserves his own film.

Look at that day, look at it! Now look away and remember that you're on the late shift tonight and the closest you'll get to a cool breeze will be the air conditioning, blowing recycled fart right down on top of you.

I dislike writing in the second person singular.

I'm moving out of the flat, three years and three months after moving in. Away from the scurvy cooking smells from overhead, away from those annoying bastard students next door, away to a place with an actual kitchen, a big screen television and a Fitzbollix to drink with. August. Can't wait.

= = =

This week I will go to see 'His and Hers,' I will watch my first World Cup match in a pub, I will read the book 'Dancer,' I will think about entering that writing competition with the closing date approaching, I will fail to enter said writing competition due to a complete absence of words and structure, I will eat halibut, I will drink the finest wines available to humanity, I will throw something at John Terry's slanty head, I will feel better.

His & Hers is great. Heartbreaking in places but great nonetheless. And hooray for the move away from bastarding marketing students.

Holemaster said...

Are you staying in the odd numbers Radge?

There's a bit of Milton in us all.

Radge said...

Hooray indeed, annoying fuckers.

I am currently in the odd numbers, Holemaster, but I'm moving to the even numbers.

Good work on the house move. I have moved 16 times in less than 11years. Commitment issues.

Radge said...

I proffer that the houses couldn't commit to you, Regina, not t'other way around.

Holemaster said...

Leave some Bill Hicks DVDs with the morketing students.

River said...

Oh dear lord, recycled fart. As if recycled air wasn't bad enough.

Radge said...

Holemaster - Too good for them.

River - No air conditioning in the end, just mind breaking heat.

Yes. Rhetorical my arse.

He most certainly does. Football was good though.

Nice.

Indeed.

What a week!

Radge said...

I've been busy doing none of the above.

A belated happy birthday, Mook. I'd have remember if I wasn't drunk.

Note to self - Don't read Radge's blog re recycled farts when you are home feeling sick and dizzy!

Good news re the house move though!
