Has moved. She's galloped off across the fields to pastures new.

Check her out from now on at wordpress.
I've bowed to the pressure.

I love this. Full circle of life here.

Valentine's Day

Firstly gotta say super happy birthday to my lovely friend the penguin. She floats my boat, and rocks my world. :):)


I had a different post, but i changed my mind, and now I'm thinking of:
Marvyn Gaye, Stax, Motown, Hearts, Ruffles, Cake, Cards, Fluff, Flowers, Air, Al Green, Sigur Ros,

Now this is absolutely reflective of my age/stupid brain but...
oh and call me lame but:

And i know Scott is Gay but:

And my absolute favourite.

Now, in other stuff: It's time to start preparing now i reckon.

The first Friday in may is always...

Jeepers there was some serious fog this morning.

This is on the m50, it was realyl freaky driving onto it, when you couldn't see more than like two metres ahead.
*makes ghost noises*

And some Daffodils

I'm claiming it.

I had a dream of Aoife and Niall, amongst others.

I had a dream last night, a really detailed one about the blog awards, I'm not saying everything, cos, well i think it would be too weird to describe all of it.

But they (the awards) were on in a big huge mad warehouse, it was really cold and i was up in a balcony which was about a mile up, but obviously i could still see everything. There were a load of people milling around everywhere, but it wasn't too crowded.

Damien Mulley
was hiding HIDING behind a chair for the whole thing, there were plenty of others milling around, bearing in mind i haven't met every blogger going, but they were all there.

But my dream really focused on Nialler9 and Aoife. I hope i'm not gonna freak anyone out here, but ye guys won a few awards, especially Aoife. I can't remember which but just that ye did... so well done!

More dream news as i remember it!


And her desktop proves it...

I really like this pic actually i must say, \o

Guilty Pleasure #343

Ok i know, i know... i just can't help it.

Altogether now, wake me up...

It's on the Internet so it must be true

Cos Pedro has the 411, and not one, not two, not three, but Four! I'm very very impressed.
Especially by this one...

and this one...


not forgetting.

More here, I think i'm going to start rating my favourites... *thinks about that*

What is this word 'Swede'?

I've heard it mentioned a lot recently... i just have no idea. Is it a made up word from Be Kind Rewind? I haven't seen it yet. On a scale of one to ten how behind the times am i?

I HEART this Desktop


It's Bens. Via Ricardo.

Honk if you hate scientology

So there's been plenty of talk about Anonymous v Scientology. There's talk of the London one here. It seemed a bit half arsed to me.

As the protest moved down across the road from the actual Scientology headquarters, it seemed like the group were daring each other to stand near the door of the place...
I was there a bit later, so there were maybe a lot more people earlier on in the day. Hmm...

I actually much prefer this one: :)

Raptureponies HEARTS Julian Opie. I absolutely HEART the sexytime one here.

Do you think they are trying to compensate for something?

Every time i see it...

That;s all i can think of.

Anyone for a spot of Weasel Coffee?

Selling it in Arnotts, i guess that's what the cool kids are into these days. Next thing the SIndo will be shitin' on about teh health beneifts of tubular slugs.

Delicious coffee regurgitated by weasels. It's the taste!

Nyom Chocolate Covered Scoripian.

Yum, Ant lollipops

This is an aphrodisiac pearl lollipop... yep.

Desktop Update

Something i started on a while back, it's a slow burner.
I only found Le Catch's one the other day, cos for some reason my spam filter thought that it was... err.. spam! I like it though, v reflective of le Catch. :)

I also robbed this from Rick, where Niall O'K posted his. I have serious Spongebob voices in my head when i see it! :) Really like your blog as well dude,

Nay has hers here.

And Sarah (thanks so much for Cat Power this morning :) has hers here,

also via Rick, Donna put hers up here.

Oh and Rick's of course is here:

Oh Lads

More of this, this and this.

This morning it was the turn of the unforgettable Wamdue Porject.

I'm beginning to think there's some kind of private joke, or trying to see if anyone's really bothered. Stoppit!

In my continuing feature

which is nameless as of yet.. although I'm thinking of calling it "What were you thinking?" or "Stop my ears are bleeding", more crap. I'm sorry that's the only word I can think of though.

The latest assault on my ears came in the form of Whigfield

I used to always confuse her with Cyndi Lauper.
And blah blah, i know i'm prob helping to further the pain, by mentioning it, but i need an outlet!


I had dinner last night with she of the captivating eyes, (Capto Eyes), it was in a lovely down to earth restaurant.
I say down to earth, because there's another one slightly up the road, which is so uptight, they've crawled up their own bums.

So myself and capto eyes went in,(me looking slightly dishevelled - it was Thursday night, and i was just back from work," first they left us waiting...for ages, then about 3 tables freed up all at once, and they came over and said it would be half an hour wait... pft...I should have known!

Anyway went to a different restaurant down teh road, which was absolutely delightful. I had spaghetti bolognaise, with some bread. it was nyom. So all in all, moral of the story is don't go to pretentious restaurants.

/rambling rantlike post.

By the way, I think i've coined a new phrase: stalkerlust. i think it works.

Also I absolutely HEART the word Ruffles.

I need something to get me through

Raptureponies HEARTS Bob Dylan.

Actually... who doesn't?

*Again hope it works cos my comp is a bit banjoed.

Emmm... #2

Further to This. I just heard this on the radio in the office.

I must admit I may have danced at the time but Seriously?

*hope that youtube works... my comp is acting a bit funny.


These two are THE SAME PEOPLE!!!!!!!

To Wordpress or not to Wordpress

I've been suffering from some peer pressure lately, move to wordpress, it's great, themes, widgets, all that jazz. I'm a bit scared though, i'm kind of comfortable here, i like the green, i don't like the idea of stuff going missing somewhere in the interweb, and of course even more recordy-ness of me.
Raptureponies hearts blogspot and is not sure if she can grow to love wordpress as much.
I do like that when you hover over a link a little box pops up though.

*remains confused and unsure*
*realises she doesn't like confusion and unsurety*
*starts to think about hats*

The lovely Sarah

Posted her desktop here. I hope we aren't aliens... :)

Check out about 1.21

From Tib, who clearly shares my passion!

Firefox + Monscooch = Smiley face

I thought i was going INSANE! On Monscooch's blog, (very nice by the way), any time i went to the site i saw a little smiley face on the right hand margin. I asked other people, who claimed they could not see it, i therefore thought they were lying, but that's a whole other story.
Now i have proof! Muah ha ha ha*!
I've even marked it out to prove i'm not actually seeing things.

That's it, i just wanted internet reassurance of my sanity. :/

*maniacal laughing prob won't help re-affirm this post.



There's something weird going on. There seems to be an emergence of 90s dance music going on at the moment. Especially here. Is this a conscious decision... Did i miss a press release? I've already heard this


this week...
what's next the Vengabus? *shudder*

I love

That SEBP are known as the Boners.
Cue Beavis and Butt-head Laugh.

Also, Nialler9's podcasts rocks my world! :)

Do you also work under a fascist regime?

Nay sent in her desktop pic. I heart this pic.
And as she said:
desktops really are a little peep of personality, aren't they?


Definitely hot.

I heart SFA

Super Furry Animals that is. I saw them doing a spot of bingo at EP (which i mega heart) a while back, and they were great fun!

Anywho: Hello Sunshine

Ba ha ha ha ha ha... #2

I'm not sure why but this photo made me laugh so much.

Ba ha ha ha ha ha!!!

This is so old, but i've only just seen it now! Star Wars Christmas joy

Oh lads.

This is an actual headline:
Police: Crack Found in Man's Buttocks

From Myfox

Post My Desktop

This is possibly the nerdiest thing i've ever done. But i think it's very interesting to see what pics people have on their desktop!
Mine is a pic from space. Well it's a picture that Nasa took on some expedition or other, but i love it, i really think it's a beautiful picture.

Is this a thing... is anyone pushed? what's anyone else got on their desktop? I bet this is gonna make me look really poncy, apologies in advance for that.


is in a weird mood.

No Country for Old Men

Saw this film, got super freaked out by Javier Bardem ( i hope that's spelt right). Anywho brilliant movie, really very very good. A thoroughly thrilling thriller. Hello i'm a walking cliche by the way.

Anywho i came across this pic, and did an actual double take,

This is the same guy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

He's hot.

Posts about men will finish for the day now.


Ok so, Ireland are playing France at the weekend, this means (possibly, I'm not sure if he'll actually be playing) but it means that Chabal might be playing. See I'm becoming, nay have already become slightly obsessed with Chabal.
I've already talked about him here and here.

Now i'm a disaster, the match was on the other day, and i walked into a room, where the television was surrounded by about 15 people, and asked what's on, football match is it? to much sighing and frowning. But this is different.

Anywho...I've found myself staring at rugby matches he is in, and i found the last time there was a big rugby thing on, probably the last time Ireland did rubbish, grey jersey's blah blah, i just ended up staring at the screen, and relentlessly bringing him up in conversation.

It's getting a bit weird.

He's just so interesting*... is that the word. It is now.

*I was going to write alluring but thought it would be weird.

Sébastien Chabal, the iconic figure from France’s World Cup campaign, is among a host of casualties in the RBS Six Nations Championship squad of Marc Lièvremont, the new coach, that was announced yesterday. Chabal, the media darling from Sale Sharks, who had a website dedicated to his exploits as women drooled over his barbarian appearance, has been dropped, with every likelihood that his international career is over.


Bad news from the Times. That'll learn me to pay attention to stuff.

Weekend and stuff

It's the weekend, a child has been christened, Raptureponies drank too much, what is new! We also had some delightful fun with wigs, and the word strog!

Anywho Lost is back tonight, or so i hear. I've pretty much lost interest in Lost. After defending it against Prison Break (too unrealistic) i have finally changed my tune. It's just a bit.. oh here we are again, with no answers and no end in sight. I'll probably still end up watching it, and then be annoyed with myself for watching it, because it's so annoying. I wish i had a quiz to go to.

Which i do tomorrow night... If you bring in some cds you can get in for free. And it will be worth it to see a great man at work. It's for Oxfam, i've been to a few of the other ones, mucho fun!

Songza is a pretty deadly site, that plays tunes. It's kind of like musicovery, but different. It has pretty much everything i've searched for so far, so pleased about that. In fact they are good in their own special ways.

All those facebook pokings, you never really understood, have no fear, the urban dictionary is here.

Ghost Riding: The act of hanging outside of their driver-side door with no driver in the seat while the car is still in motion. From the yay area, oakland!

Ghost riding the whip,
doors open,
invisible driver!
invisible driver!

Throwing Shade: is to throw "attitude."

I was all up in the club "Throwing Shade" last night.

Raptureponies HEARTS this dress.

Feck!I had loads of stuff i wanted to blog about, but i forgot cos i was so busy today... hhmmm, need to do some schedule juggling or something like that.
