I’m a pretty normal chick with too many goals in life to actually get up off me a%*e to do anything about them. I like to just float about and hope Karma is good to me, ‘cos I sure am good to it.  So good, in fact, that I decided to put my neck on the line for the cause:


I swear it didn’t hurt.

I am presently trying to quit smoking and biting my nails.

Who I’d like to meet:
Dylan Moran, Billy Connolly..
I’d love to catch up with various cousins I have scattered around the globe to see what they’re at.
I’d also really love to meet Brian the dog from Family Guy because I think me and him would really hit it off.

Here ya go, Kel….

The batteries in me camera are banjaxed so an arms-length phone photo shall have to do. Also it’s photoshopped (of course) for despeckling purposes, so the image may seem a tad bit redder than reality!

  5. Kelly who? says:

    looks good! Think it’d be nice curly also.


  6. K8 says:

    I loves it I do.

    I’ll stick my finger in a live plug socket tomorrow. That should curl it up nice.

    I thought the saying is….Do the curtains match the carpet?
    Hey, but I’m just an American, ya’ know.

  8. Grandad says:

    Does the landing carpet match the hall?

    Det er alt godt!

    Norska bussar i Wicklow utanför Tesco? You have me there! Have you managed to quit?

  12. K8 says:

    Umm… it’s a work in progress.

  13. UPDATE: Six feet tall in heels.

  14. Kirk M says:

    Gorgeous…simply gorgeous!

    I met Grandad and Sixty both at the same time and haven’t been the same since. Considering how strange I was to begin with, it’s amazing that I could get worse. :)

  15. K8 says:

    You’ll be okay. Drink plenty of fluids and pretend it was all a dream. That’s what I do.

  16. Cat says:

    Hi K8,

    just thought I’d stop by. I like your blog!

    And I can definitely appreciate how much trouble you’re having quitting smoking. It’s not easy and will get harder. Just stick to it. :)

  17. K8 says:

    Actually I’m going to start smoking a pipe instead. I just have to find the right one…

  22. shornsheep says:

    Aww, the stopping smoking is a real hard one. My empathy is with you. The hardest thing I’ve done I think – stopping smoking.

  23. vickyrogers says:

    hi there

    how are you? Totally l0ve your blog really really cool. Reading the first bit about your son and the classical music brought a tear to my eye a happy one of course. Its always great seeing children and their reactions when they listen to music especially classical. Your son is really cute and one very special guy. Your daughter is a small and cute version of you shes so cute you and jeff are truely blessed with your family.

So touching, I had to check it out for myself. Your writing is brilliant! Thanks for sharing. I’ll be checking back on a regular basis.

    Hello Mr Dawster!

    Yes there’s still life here, though it’s evolved into a Gollum-like state so please excuse the anti-establishmentarianistic vibe around here. I’m glad you dropped by, here, have some of my tea! Sorry it’s cold.

    I hope you have a lovely weekend too :)
