Got the man flu. Things are bad.

I went on a road trip to Cork at the weekend and ended up sleeping on a random kitchen floor in the world's coldest house. It didn't really do me any good. Five days later and I still am totally dosed and still in need of some serious sleep.

On the Movember front, things are also bad. I will post a picture in a few days, be prepared!

I made friends with some American students that are over here for a couple of months and on Sunday they came over and cooked us Thanksgiving dinner. Turkey, pumpkin pie, green bean casserole and sweet potatoes with marshmallows! (right Susan?) It sounds crazy but was incredible.

It is so cool to meet people from different places and to get to know a bit about them and their cultures back home. Friends really are the best possessions. Guys, welcome to the family.

The Gaslight Anthem

I went to see these guys the other night, such a fantastic band. They are from New Jersey and just sound like the sons of Springsteen. Rock & Roll with a bit of grit, singing songs about Casanovas and girls named Maria. This song is called "Even Cowgirls Get The Blues."

For something really unbelievable check out this old post from a while back.

I Love Weddings

My friends John & Emma got married on Saturday and it was brilliant. I really love weddings, they are such a great thing to be a part of. Everyone is just in such great mood and you are also nearly always guaranteed some unreal dancing!

"There are two kinds of people in this world that go around beardless—boys and women—and I am neither one."

I decided that this year I was maybe old and manly enough to participate in Movember. I think I might have been wrong.

Movember challenges men to change their appearance and the face of men’s health by growing a moustache. The rules are simple, start Movember 1st clean shaven and then grow a moustache for the entire month. The moustache becomes a talking point, by which awareness and funds are raised for cancers that affect men.

I may post a picture up here of my progress, but I doubt it will be anytime soon! 5 days in and still nothing!
