When i was a teenager i was quiet shy and introvert. however when i started college, things changed. I became more outgoing, more sociable and adventurous. A lot of people who've known me since this change couldn't imagine the old me. But a conversation about my drinking habbits (a friend who i've known since i was about 14 commented that because he's never seen me drunk, that supposidly that i'm a lightweight)

So that got me thinking about how when i'm with people who know me from my younger years i often revert back to my shy self. Its quiet strange. Do these people not believe me when i tell stories of my latest exploits. Just something to think about

Stuck for a christmas present

For a long time now i've been a supporter of bothar, a limerick based charity that specializes in giving animals to third world families. So if you can't think of a good present this year, give a gift that keeps on giving (even €10 can buy a share in a some snails for a family in cameroon)

F** You Deputy Stagg!!!

(appologies if this makes little sense it's late and i'm rambling)
Today the most talked about thing in irish news was Green Party TD Paul Gogarty swearing at Labour's Eamonn Stagg.

My friend and fellow blogger Kris commented on twitter: "love the way noone is talkng about the bill and only the language of those not so clean greens". This got me thinking about the state of Irish Politics. The dail is mostly a boring place. A case in point is the leaders of the two biggest parties- biffo and enda- possibly the two dullest men in politics. Last wednesday we had the budget and with the exception of public servants and those on the dole, the most important announcement of the day to most people was the cut in drink prices.

So today Paul Gogarty spiced up what is an otherwise dull room by cursing. No cared about the debate at hand (there was no question of the bill not being passed by the house). A simple act of anger showed the country that there's a bit of life in our politicians. And underneath there's a lesson to be learned, Irish politics needs to liven up before people loose all interest.
