When I was 19

When I was 19 I lived in an attic over looking a seriously old Abbey/ Graveyard in Howth. The house was a bit mad and I shared it with some interesting Slovakians.

Myself and my drunkaa friend christened my little room Phyllis , good times were had in Phyllis pre-drinking shoulders of vodka with my funny house mate Simona. Her stories of kissing all the boys in nightclubs back home and getting beaten up by their girlfriends were highly entertaining. My first Friday night in the house before I went off to get trashed with my friends consisted of smoking cigars, drinking some wild Slovakian shots and watching Faithless live on the telly. I kinda wish  I spent more time drinking with these guys as they were quite funny.

I only spent 3 and a half months living in this house but it was my first home that I lived in without friends or family and it certainly left some interesting experiences ingrained in my mind.

I have so many songs that remind me of this house and my little attic room Phyllis. So i'm going to post one up each week and put them under the Phyllis Collection. They just bring back some good memories.

Bauman bites

CLARISSA  Zygmunt Bauman explains it all...

'The strategy of carpe diem is a response to a world emptied of values pretending to be lasting'


Do read.


She & Him make lovely songs. This one in particular sums up a situation. There's an empty sound to the song.

Guns in the sky

I think ya'll should listen to this now. It's just very very good.

Strange dreams

My sister-in-law freaked me out this week telling me she dreamt that I was in a chemist with her complaining about the price of a pregnancy test I was trying to purchase. VILE. In the dream she came over and informed me that you could buy cheaper ones in the local pound shop. BILE.

Dreams about pregnancy  under the age of 30 are hideous. In no way shape or form do I want to be associated with a minor before I have finished my life of lunacy and bad choices. Luckily after much research I can calm myself with the knowledge that dreaming about pregnancy or other people dreaming that you are pregnant will not get you pregnant. I repeat NOT get you pregnant.

What is interesting is the quote I found below:

For a man to dream that he is the father of a child he is warned about indiscriminate sexual relations and one night stands.

A good few months ago someone I know had this dream. Ha!
