Xmas review

I got dragged away from my friends and family today and got thrown back into this thing called the career. Did I really go to college for 5 years to get 5 days off at Xmas? Still better than what the yanks get.

Xmas was amazing this year, it must have been the first time I could actually afford to buy nice things for my family. I think exchanging a present with my eldest sister was the best as she got me the zig and zag dvd and I got her a 16 gig Ipod Nano. She was a tad embarrased, after we had both agreed to twenty quid limits on presents. But still Xmas day had a shit load of gargle and watched Zig and Zag and laughed my ass off.

Stephens day I went down to see the parents country house which I hadnt stepped foot in 7 months after they bought it and found it a very nice pile of bricks. It was hard as usual leaving Dublin this morning and I do sometimes wonder what the hell I am doing over in Bournemouth but im here another 4 months at least after getting my contract renewed, then il see what the craic is Pat!

The Tommy and Hector Show

Just found this podcast very randomly. Tommy Tiernan and his good pal Hector have there own radio show. You can download some podcasts for free off the itunes site. Well worth a listen. I have listened to all there podcasts now, the imaginary race and Tommy dreaming probably being my favourite. There interview with the Ocean Colour Scene goes to show you should definately know something about the band your interviewing before they get to the studio hungover from the night before.
