Pat Kenny leaving!?!?!

Yay!!! Happy dance time!

I just heard that Pat Kenny is resigning as host of the Late Late Show!

I can't stand him, he's an awful presenter and simply annoying.

Wonder who'll replace him...

Err... Just another also

I swear I'll go back to my essays after this one!

Why is it that some of the pictures I put in my blog are all grainy and horrible, but some are not? I don't really understand it, because when I copy my photos over from my camera I always resize them to the same size. Anyone out there know?


I think I'm in love with Cornify. Unicorns, rainbows and glitter, what more could a girl ask for, eh?

I'm trying to figure out how to add the button to this blog that will let all you lot cornify my page. :)

Unicorn love!

EDIT: It's added! Look at the top right hand side. Now go, go make a glittery, unicorny mess of your screen, make haste dammit!
I officially fail at life. Or at writing essays anyway. Why oh why am I doing English???

In other news

I made cupcakes for mummy (haha) on Mother's Day, which was last Sunday.
Myself and my siblings cooked dinner for my mum and granny. My older sister did the main course- Lemon and mushroom chicken, and my little brother did the starter- pea and mint soup, while I did the dessert- evilly good cupcakes.

Walnut and coffee cupcakes and banoffi cupcakes. God the banoffi ones were good! Not a good idea for someone on a diet though, I used a whole tin of Dulce De Leche, a lot of sugar and a lot of butter and cream to make them! The coffee and walnut ones I make becand some coffee in the cupcake mixture, the cupcakes topped with coffee flavoured marscarpone and half a walnut. If anyone wants the recipes just let me know!use mum likes coffee and walnut. They were a much healthier option, walnuts a

The Banoffi ones were a little messy, I was too impatient to let them cool before I iced them so the icing melted and went everywhere. They were so good though!

The excited family receving their cupcakes.

Okay, so they don't look very excited. They were though!

Songs you couldn't live without

Inspired by this post on MSN (no, I'm not some weirdo who spends their free time reading everything on MSN, it's my homepage and the interesting articles show up on the front page), I got to thinking abotu what songs I couldn't live without. This is basically a 'favourite songs of all time' post under a new guise, but what the heck, I'll do it!.

As a starting point, let's take my top played song on LastFM, which is BabyshamblesLa Belle et la BĂȘte. This is definitely one of my 'can't live without it' songs. It's one of the only songs that I loved the first time I heard it- it usually takes me a few listens- and it's one of the few that I can listen to over and over again without getting sick of it. It's got some great memories attached to it, memories of some old friends of mine, memories of the summer of 2007, eating chips down the Arch after going swimming at the beach, of sharing naggins of vodka around in the park when we were 16 and smoking one cigarette between three of us and hoping our mothers wouldn't find out. Nicole had this song on her phone and our soundtrack to that summer was this song, BabyshamblesFuck Forever, KlaxonsGolden Skans, Hadouken!That Boy That Girl, and anything by Cansei de Ser Sexy. In fact, I love this song so much that I'm considering getting the French Dog off the cover of Down in Albion tattooed onto my right hip.

Look out for future posts in which I'll continue this topic.

I hate

The term 'Recessionista'.

In fact I just hate the word 'recession'. I'm not a big fan of 'fashionista' either, so put the two together... a good word it does not make.

A slightly interesting article about what sells during a recession.

Hmm... Well I've bought chocolate bars today, from Aldi (and damn nice they are!), I've tried sewing a missing button back onto one of my jackets, only to realise that I'd lost the button and I've considered eating baked beans for lunch.

Does that make me a super-dooper-faaaabulous recessionista?? You bet it does. Ugh, I can't believe I just typed that word. Again.

it's been a while

lots has happened though.

I got a fringe. wow, excting! be excited, yeah

it snowed a bit yesterday, which was a bit crazy for march.

^ a not very clear photo of the snow from my bedroom window

it was only a bit of snow and it didn't stick but it never snows here, so even a tiny bit is exciting.

my little brother turned 12 yesterday. mum made him chocolate cake.

I cooked some carrot and sweet potato soup for lunch

don't you just love giant cups/bowls with handles. also, new hair!

I basically did nothing yesterday though, except lounged about and went to the supermarket for yoghurt. didn't even go into uni. yes yes yes, I'm an awful person.

I had some yummy lamb and rosemary stew for dinner though, which mummy made.

ooh, I did do something yesterday, I went to the library to pick up a book. no. 6 in Stephan King's
dark tower series - Song of Susannah. I haven't read much of it yet but it seems pretty good so far.

I wore my silver docs, a black topshop vest top, black vero moda skirt, black topshop leggings, studded river island belt and a leopard print cardi from a-wear.

today wasn't much more exciting. i went to uni for a while, to an english tutorial and a lecture. fun stuff. I couldn't make out what was going on in the lecture and the guy sitting in front of me was on google earth on his laptop and reading cyanide and happiness so I just looked over his shoulder rather than listen to the lecture.

i wore make up today for the first time in ages. no clear pictures of it though. just the green and brown eyeshadows from the MAC warm pallette from their Colour Forms 08 collection with diorshow and my usual face makeup and 17 balmy beige on my lips.

clothes-wise i wore these new trousers which i got in topshop in dublin at the weekend for €15, reduced from €53. with my silver docs, green topshop top and grey cardi borrowed from my mum. along with the brown leather bag on my bed, which i wear pretty much everyday
