An Chuid Shootings

A bus driver from the gaeltacht once picked up Mr VC and told him that there were "An chuid Shootings" in Dublin - ie a lot of shootings, this while he drove away from the city at break neck speed, terrified of being caught in a random crossfire with his bus load of dublin teens bound for 3 weeks of Irish speaking in the West.
I was going to talk about how much more this seems to be so when we no longer live in the place and are just hearing about these incidents on the news, and therefore how a different perspective can completely change your, well, perspective... and then I realised how silly that would be,,, so decided against it.
Instead I thought you should all watch this and mail me your order for official south of Eire Air (guaranteed gunpowder free).

Ahhg, mad making in the extreme. Is this what they call a round? We used to sing them in harmony.

Her parents must be so proud, so proud...but,like, why is negative energy so discriminated against? Imagine if we'd none? We'd just float away and get caught in the electric fan at the top of the world...

Elisabeth, not quite sure what you mean there, but what we call a round here is usually not sung, but enough of them leads to singing sure enough.
Niamh, I know. I'm just glad there was no such thing as the internet when I was young and full of bright ideas, oh and no one would sit and listen to my ramblings either..

She's a bloody genius! Love the scarf, the foot bangle, the eye make-up and the confidence.
I want one of those $100,000 dollar jars. AND 99% guaranteed to be the air you actually paid for, because of the special vacuum process. Brilliant.

I am a bit worried about the 1% 'other stuff'.
