Sometimes you have to extend the weekend just that little bit more. Yesterday evening, me, YoCo, Minky Von Fabrege, Rachel and Marjorie had some Coronas @ South William and talked about Big Brother, scary people breaking into your house, and general goss. Then Aoibhinn and her homies came along and I ended up staying later than I should have. But I hadn't seen her forever and needed to hang out. So that was fun.
But. Do you ever wake up on Tuesday and feel like you have already done an entire week of work even though you have yet to get started? That's how I feel today.
Probably because I got up too early and decided to watch breakfast TV:
RTE 1: They REALLY need to get a breakfast show. There was some dodgy English sitcom followed by The Nanny. Seriously, who is going to watch The Nanny at 7.45am? Ok, fine, I watched it.
TV3: That said, Ireland AM wasn't exactly brilliant stuff either this morning. "How much for the steamer?" asked Alan Hughes as a 90-year-old man demonstrated how to pull wallpaper off what looked like a large, thin notice board. The steamer, by the way, was around €50. Then Republic of Loose came on and as usual, when there are bands on the couch, Mark Cagney makes a big hoopla about how he likes Moosic, knows Moosic and wants you to know he's down with it, yo.
Living TV: Bewitched! Yes!
MTV: Hogan Knows Best. Truly the worst MTV programme ever. Is it really sensitive to be showing the young Hogan guy racing around in cars since he has left a kid practically brain dead in hospital following a drunken crash and is in jail himself? Pull this programme. Now.
Sky News: interesting report with "great access" (as we were informed) from Afghanistan and an interview with some Taliban guys and scary footage of a suicide bomb. All of this was spoiled by the stupid "for queen and country" logo in the right hand corner of the screen. That said, I like when Sky News split their coverage between the studio and another setting - in this case, a British army base in Afghanistan.
E4: Music videos. I never noticed Noel Gallagher is wearing a Claddagh ring in the 'Don't Look Back In Anger' video, and forgot how awesome the Bravery's 'Honest Mistake' video is, even if they themselves look like eejits.
GMTV: High pollen count in Dover today.
