    here’s a puzzler-cavemen lived in caves long ago-but where are the caves because there’s hardly any caves where i live and furthermore the stallacties and stalagmites are all intact.bin laden would be hard pressed to find a cave is all im saying-or fred flintstone.peadar pluaise-liar.anyone who lives in a cave is a banger.
    theres always the mature student route and you get to pocket your grant.if the chinese only copped on wed all live there-nice weather nice food nice carry on alright.

    i mean youd only get a c for that now-“last minute revision tips”,those last minute revision tips in brief its called-thats a c like.be under no illusion.thats the standard-clubodea? 65/70%.

    I remember a film one time where there was a handicapped youngfella trying to make a pass at his teacher-it wasnt charly which was some film for one film but another one-this character ended up wheeling him self of the school roof because the teacher gave him a c.but to his love letter!

    oh god says i.the e-xamit smart tips are good actually for anyone doing maths.

    on the subject of caves for anyone who cares,i have an idea for a house.
    it is dug into a sea cliff.the cliff is all cliff but there is a window and i have a big house there inside in the cliff with me and cait and(who would have the second biggest wedding in the world would it be rihanna like or what-)ah itd be a glorious house-have that on me.

    a bit of a farm
    rock cliff sea

    long after your leaving cert is over youll find youll be doing well to live in a dream house such as i have described.oh all that awaits you(lion isteach an bhearna)i could go on another bit myself but i wont.

    ah eoin i couldnt be up to satirising this green and blacks chocolate crowd and-ill tell you one thing keep them out of the bog!i hope no carpenter fashions these people a hay knife or a slean or a pike altho youd buy a pike.
    why not dan-are you precious about the bog?
    well youre the blogger.

  6. Eoin Says:

    Wait, what? I asked you up to Dublin at the time of Mongrel? The only person I remember asking up to Dublin who I didn’t know were that Irish neo-Nazi black metal band. That wasn’t you, was it??

  7. Usher Says:

    ah god no,some fella had written an article about marvin gaye and i said this is atrocious and corrected an apostrophe in an article that had a line about reading finnegan’s wake in a wind tunnel and how myself and my friend had come up for the opening of an art gallery after a feed of legal yokes and ended up staying the night on the streets drinking with fellas because we blew the money and other than that now i enjoyed reading this issue etc.so the reply was yeah next time youre up in dublin be sure to come up and see us.how many years ago that was i don’t know,i was delighted at the time with this.and there was no more made of it.

  8. Eoin Says:

    I don’t remember the article. Was it me who emailed you or one of the other lads?

  9. Usher Says:

    e-mail-no.ah nothing like that of course not,just a gesture-i used like being on that site-i remember arguing about norman mailer and rip torn and maria doyle kennedy and plenty more besides.
    i actually broke the other guys website about a month ago with one comment.they haven’t been back.there aren’t many sites on the net,in ireland at least you could actually go on for a bit of crack.those guys took it to heart a bit didn’t they but sure what.
