Vivian and Michael and I got a bit carried away last night.

I sort of knew that that twenty-fourth pint was perhaps not a great idea.

Pepe hesitated for approximately 1 nanosecond when he heard that boeuf bourgignon was on the menu.
Then the Lindt chocolate balls clinched the deal.
He is off chocolate for lent. But it seems that the self-denial of chocolaty pleasures only applies to the cocoa treat when it is in bar or square form. Thankfully chocolate balls (or profiteroles) seem to escape the ban.

Pepe is quite inventive when it comes to creating liturgical loopholes.

Let the good times profiterole!

On the tear

Unlike the hysterically happy beardy guy who was only too glad to promote the delights of beer guzzling at 9.30 AM as I was walking in to work this morning, Mr. Jean-Claude Decaux is not a happy camper.

First, he had to design posters on some sort of plastic film, to withstand the typical Irish rainfall extravaganza (the wet-glue/paper ones inevitably ended up in a mulch of, well, paper and glue, heaped underneath a bare metal billboard).

Now he has to go back to his engineers, to design plastic posters that will withstand winds gusting at 3 million miles per hour. Two to three times a week…

It’s a good thing that there is no shortage of cash in the happy-beardy-hoppy-bear industry. `

For those of you not necessarily familiar with the “on the tear” of the title, you will find a rather useful list of Irish idioms and expressions here.

Question: Who’s laughing now?

Answer: That bollix, still.

Just about.

The chairman

has left the building.

This year again I witnessed some heartbreaking scenes of panic alcohol buying in the local supermarket. 
Tomorrow is indeed the day (with Christmas day) when the sale of alcohol is illegal. 
A day when Ireland is at loss. 
And, in the absence of any alternative, turns to religion.
