Dream JobWarm enough today now all the same.  Quiet though but sure that’s to be expected now that the tourist season is over.  Still and all had a minibus full of water polo players from Bremen on Monday.  Spoke very good English but did not like the Kit Kats at all, said they were stale.  I tried one myself and they were right but I didn’t let on.  I’ll have to get onto Paschal at the Co-op about that.  They were desperate to try crubeens but I had to tell them I had none in the snack bar

Ambrose is back from America.  Went over to visit Cidney for a few weeks in the Hamptons and sure doesn’t he arrive back with her in tow.  I have no idea what is going on.  She barely said two words to me.  The pair of them are holed up below in the unfinished holiday home.  No idea what the plan is and he bites my head off every time I ask.

Still things will be quiet enough now til the Crow Impersonating Festival in October.

IMG_1548.JPGhad a few inquiries from readers about my solutionizing of the television problem in the holiday home down below so here is the proof of my ingenuity.  Ambrose says he has no idea what I did and it is a miracle I didn’t burn the house down.  I remarked that maybe the next time one of the tellys in one of the holidays homes gets banjaxed, maybe he won’t be off gallivanting in America and he can fix it himself so there will be no problem.  I am not sure if he is talking to me now.

Quiet enough now today.  Some Danish fellah got his motorbike stuck in the cow gate somehow.  Cross as two sticks he was.

Do you know what I’m only after discovering?  The whole summer I was taking pictures and writing posts about Cidney and Ambrose and the Comiskeys back from Australia for their holidays and all Cidney’s friends in their house share in the Hamptons  and all that and I was saving them all in the drafts folder and no one ever saw them?   Isn’t that gas all the same?  maybe I’ll make an album of the photos.  They have that yoke that does it at the Euro Spar in town.  Make a lovely souvenir for Cidney so it would.  Ambrose could post it to her.  Besotted so he is, the poor unfortunate little gobshite.

 Terrible pleased altogether to be asked to host this year’s Bloomsday Twiterature, The Definitive Indefinite Article’s 10,000-year project to broadcast the entire of Ulysses 140-characters per year.  I even borrowed Tony Balfe’s drape from when he was in the Showaddywaddy cover band – closest thing I could find to Edwardian garb at short notice.  Anyway.   Last year’s Twiterature was a huge success.  It is nice to get away from the box and watching the Copa America and the Euros and it was great to give the new intern Cidney something to do to go into town and get a copy of Ulysses and keep her out of me hair for a while.  Jaysus she has me driven up the wall complaining about not being able to get Hamptons Houseshare Hell on the telly below at the house or something but that is a whole other day’s work.

 In the spirit of synergy and do-more-dynamically-with-dramatically less the Cliff Experience Reception Experience will be (I am informed) synergizing and dovetailing with some other Definitive Indefinite Article properties.  Sure it is like one of those media mergers here.  I can’t keep track of it at all!

 Anyway, apparently I am getting an intern, which is just as well cos no one seems to want the fecking job.  Seems there is a Free-Intern-Included thing with the solar panels I got a while back.  (Shoulda known there’d be a catch!) Some young wan or young fellah called Cidney.  Coming all the way over from America it seems to do an internship in Public Relations with the Cliff Experience Reception Experience.  I just googled Cidney on Ambrose’s phone and it seems she is a young wan who used to be in some blog folleyer upper or something called the Hamptons Houseshare Hell.  I can’t imagine what she would want to be doing away out here handing out flyers for dolphins on an unpaid internship of the summer.  I don’t know how this is going to turn out but she is supposed to be here this weekend.  I suppose she can doss down in one of the unfinished holiday homes with Ambrose for the time being.
