The best birthday cake... EVER!!!

Isn't this the best cake you've ever seen? And it tasted good too!

It wasn't my birthday by the way.

Let's see if this works

I'm trying to set up a feed to Twitter. Here goes...


After an extremely long absence...

...I'm back!

I've decided to revive my blog after just over 8 years. Spending too much time on Facebook and other social media had kind of killed it off. However, after seeing the missus decide to blog, it inspired me to do it again.

I can't promise that I'll post regularly, but watch this space for my take on music, politics, sport and whatever else pops into my head.

The Last Supper

On a recent visit to Milan, the wife and I went to see Leonardo Da Vinci's famous mural painting The Last Supper. Tickets have to be booked in advance and cost approximately €10. A maximum of 25 people are allowed into the room - a former refectory of the Dominican order - at any one time due to its deterioration, and one is allowed only 15 minutes. I wasn't sure what to expect. Although I've never read or seen Dan Brown's Da Vinci Code, I've seen its image in countless tellybox programmes and books. Despite being impressed by this work of art, I couldn't stop thinking about the fact that I badly needed a shit.

Middlesbrough 2 The Arsenal 1

I watched this one on some dodgy Thai internet site, and got English-language commentary from Talksport. It just wasn't our day; we were very poor. Boro, on the other hand, were up for it, as I expected to be. We were poor upfront. Adebayor and Eduardo were anonymous, and the midfield of Gilberto and Diarra wasn't up to it. None of the replacements made much of impact.
Fair play to Boro, they deserved their win. I don't think this defeat is critical in term of the championship, as we are still one point clear of the Mancs, but it means we can't afford to slip up. We've got a tough run of games coming up in the next few weeks. Chelsea and the Scum at home, followed by Pompey and Everton away. I hope Fabregas, Falmini, Hleb and Van Persie will be back from injury soon.

Why everyone should join a trade union

I attended my first sub-branch AGM today and won €25 in a draw. Happy days! Who says unions aren't worth joining? You can't knock the PSEU, that's for sure!

Labor wins Australain elections

I'm very pleased that conservative shithead John Howard and his inappropriately named Liberal party have lost this year's Australian general election. The Labor Party, under Kevin Rudd, have won in a landslide victory. It will be interesting to see if Rudd keeps to pre-electoral promises that include pulling Australian troops out of Iraq and signing the Kyoto Protocol. To add insult to injury, conservative shithead Howard looks set to lose his seat, which he has held for 33 years.

I am the Master!

I got my final results for my Master's degree today. I'm not sure whether I've got an Attila or a Desmond, as I'm borderline and I don't have my first year results to hand. Fuck though, I passed and I'll never have to write a thesis again. I can now look forward to my graduation in March.
