Observed stuff

My, but aren’t Irish men horny on Sundays?!  I made €32 on tips alone, just by flirting behind the wheel today, as opposed to €8 yesterday and €12 on Thursday.  What’s so special about Sundays?


I heard a snippet of news on the radio that made me giggle:  Apparently when Bertie told his co-workers he was going to throw in the towel, they “wept openly”.  Grown men?  Politicians?  I don’t think so.  I think Bertie pre-empted it.  I think he ate an extra-hot vindaloo and washed it down with five pints of Guinness the night before, then stuffed his pockets with onions the next morning before work.  It was the gas that made them cry… the gas.  Either that, or politicians are damn good actors!  Oh wait… right, never mind.

I heard a most excellent song on the radio today… several times, in fact.  It’s a version of House of Pain’s ‘Jump!’, which is a song that sparks the dancing flames into almost everybody when they hear it.  It is possibly the no.1 best song that one could hear in a nightclub and I love it.  This version is in flagrante as Gaeilge.

You Oirish readers out there know exactly what I’m talking about.  It’s Des Bishop, fair play to him… he’s learned the language in 4.2 minutes and has now taken on the coolest song known to mankind.  Here’s a link to the song on Donncha O’Caoimh’s site, Holy Shmoly.  (Don’t listen to this video if you are over the age of 50.  You will hate it.  Especially you.)  I can’t find the radio version, but I’ll buy the single if it’s released because it’s a pretty darn excellent version.

Thing is though, everything the Irish try to coolify ends up being naff in some way.  I’m eternally proud of their efforts and of the language itself, but somehow there is nothing that will entice us to relinquish that final little bit of British rule… the English language.  This song might just be enough to entice our schoolkids into pricking up their ears regarding the old Gaeilge, but that’s because they’re Irish.

As for the rest of the world… they don’t know that ‘Léim’ means ‘jump’!  All they hear is: ‘LAME, LAME, LAME, LAME, LAME!’  *sigh*  Ladies and Gentlemen, this is the definition of irony.

On a different note, a good blogger buddy of mine has been censored.  Yes!  Censored!  Read all about it here: Brianf; the hate monger blog  (Oh my lord!  Somebody else is on to us!  Kill it!  Kill it!)  Seems as though Bush -the big bad rookie himself- has found some more bitches.


On another different but equally irking note,  I read this on Going Like Sixty’s site: Bloggers are being sued out there… read all about it!  I’m pretty sure that this sueing pillock is only after a domain name, but like I say… I’m naive.  The offending site is at Neurodiversity.  It makes for interesting reading.

Bloody hell… I only came on here to write about my extra tips!  Wine is excellent blog lubrication I find.

To finish up, I would like to quote a rather insightful spam I received today;

Humph. Someone has to force me to read this post. It’s too big and boring. Brevity is the sister of talent, remember that.

Thank you, Adriana Naked Lombard xxx, I shall remember this to the end of my…


Bring on the comments

  1. I downloaded an mp3 of the song at
    I also downloaded a copy of the movie Fitna and am currently trying to figure out how to host it on my server.
    Good for you on your tips. I hope the trend continues and you make 1000 Euros a week in tips.

    Dude, thanks for showing me up. would have been a good way to start searching for Des Bishop, wouldn’t it?

  4. The damn image wasn’t even there when I commented first.
    How do I get you as my cabbie when I arrive at the airport in Dub?
    I love the song too!

  5. I wonder what it is in my personality that just HAD to click on the link that you said not to (I’m over 50 and over 60 too)

    I did. You were right, you are always right. I shant doubt you again.

  6. My that was rambling. Good tho. Good to hear the driving going ok.

  7. Nick says:

    Wow, what a lot you got! Maybe it wasn’t the generous Sunday guys, maybe you were flirting more than usual? Or was it just that you refused to unlock the doors unless they doubled their tips?

  8. Ooh I’m jealous – flirting for money? Sounds like my kinda job! By the way, ignore the spammer, I love your ramblings. And anyway, what does she know? Anyone with the middle name ‘Naked’ deserves to be ignored. Hehh. x

    Hahaha . A cackfest on a Monday . .you light up my life petal!

    Loved the gaelic Jump! (and am teetering on the over 50’s so go steady Eddie! I’m not adverse to jumping on the bed to that song. Mrs Doubtfire has a lot to answer for!)

    And I’m with Brian except drinking and driving ain’t good for biatches so we’ll have to stay home and get stonkered!

    Flirt outrageously, it works for Helldeskers, sure as hell will work for pretty taxi drivers!

    Jaysus I was in Dublin the weekend and didn’t think of ye at all for a lift into town, I would have given tips too, here’s two, open an extra button and higher the hem as far as you dare, you will get loads of money. It’s not about us blokes being Horny, it’s that when we get an erection the blood rushes from the brain to the penis and we go all stupid because naturally the brain stops functioning….

  11. doc says:

    okay – i’m here.

    now are you coming in your taxi?

  12. it’s hangovers, that’s why all the generosity.

    just let me out in the fresh air keep the change love type stuff.

  13. K8 says:

    Brian; You’re visiting the homelands too?!?! As long as you arrive betwen Wednesday and Sunday between 1- 7 pm, I’ll drive you! If you’re serious I’ll mail you the taxi company’s details :)

    Sixty; I admire your curiosity though. You’re one of those people that pushes the big red button that says ‘do not push’. So am I.

    Thriftcriminal; Thanks :)

    Nick; They were just drunk! Sunday soccer matches are very lucrative for me it seems.

    English Mum; I got a whole pile of them, each leaving the sort of comment that would arouse either disgust or pride in a blogger, so they’re more inclined to click the link. It’s clever, but very annoying.

    Baino; Heee, you’re not over 50 yet, nor will you be for quite some time, young lady. Methinks the tips are due to beer goggles… must start handing out baby bottles of whiskey to each fare!!

    Warrior; Did you ever hear of a tractor boner? Apparently farmers get them all the time, from the vibrations of the engine. Maybe I should just cut off my exhaust pipe to give my engine a bit more vroom…

    Doc; ROTFL!! Nice picture :) Is that of you mailing my postcard? I’m hopping into my car… I should be with you in about 4 years.

    Xbox4NappyRash; Yes I was wearing very pungent perfume at the time to cover up the smell of wet dog in the car. They were most probably relieved to get out!

  14. Medbh says:

    K8, thanks for that. Brilliant.
    I hope they stream his show online.

  15. warrior says:

    I think I am happy to say I have never had a tractor boner, at least I am pretty sure I am happy, I mean having a boner is not a bad thing but that one sounds like more pain than it is worth.
    I have had a bus boner, being a city boy and all that, I think I even had a horse boner once but that was painful….( let me clarify the horse didn’t have one, I did, but I didn’t give it to the horse either), Still i would go for the lack of buttons and higher hem, even a flash of stocking top, I mean I would GO for that, but I dont’ think I would ever imagine a taxi lady dressed this way unless it was A) my lucky day or B ) she was looking for over a grand as a fare………………………

  16. Yeah, I’m being spammed to death at the mo. Although thanks to the Hairy One i seem to have a good spam catcher. Dead useful, he is.

  17. Tim says:

    “Tractor boner”, that one had me LMFAO!

  18. This is news to me. We (Men) are like a light switch that is broke in the on position! We are always turned on! :)

    The Holy Schmoly video is fantastic! :)

    By the way, I have tagged you yet again! Ha! :)
