"An bhfuil tusa ag leabhairt lomsa?"

Irish language prideImage by jodimarr via FlickrHere's a great video about a bored Chinese shop worker who learns Irish before moving there, without realising that very little Irish is used in day-to-day life.

Highlights include the Taxi Driver reference and a cameo from Frank Kelly (better known as Father Jack in Father Ted) and the result is a touching short film that's equal parts hilarious and shaming. Maybe I'll try and find my old Inter. Cert. course books and have a refresher before I start Cognitive Psychology.

We shall overcome

Forget Obama, forget Darfur, forget upsetting world-travelling flames, this is a grass-roots movement I can get behind.

At least I'm not Yellow Bastard

You scored as Nancy. You are Nancy.
You are well liked and a genuinely kind person. If someone helps you out, you will never forget it and will always be grateful. You are strong and able to form lasting attachments to others. Though you may have had hard times in your life, you continue to persevere. Congrats.

Yes I've been lazy, but only Justin reads this so it's a bit disheartening to see how ignored my little ramblings are.

Anyway, after only four matches it's all over for us. Despite playing their little hearts out, the Irish team are heading home to a heroes welcome. Continuing the tactic of letting in an early goal and clawing through ninety minutes to a spectacular draw, McCarthy's Eleven went on to take shot after shot at the Spanish goal before losing on penalties. The irony when compared to Italy 1990 is far from lost on me.

On the other hand I did go to see Spiderman during the week. What a fantastic movie. This is everything the Episode II should have been and now with Ang Lee's Hulk coming up, it looks like it's going to be a good year for comic book fans.

Another hint: Check out The Libertines. I saw them at the Peterborough Met on Friday and even though they only played for a half hour, they were amazing. I've a feeling these guys are going to be bigger than Blur or Oasis combined. Punk isn't dead - there is finally life after Steps.

Until next time, your favourite wild goose.
