Delighted to find my Oyster card still had £2.50 on it #tweet


Whoops, someone at the NUJ Dublin Branch forgot the BCC field #tweet


Got up early to write and I’m already exhausted #tweet


RIP Nikolai Volkoff (Josip Peruzović), who had a crazy long career with the WWF/WWE. How many else survived well into the expansion era? #tweet


Haven’t seen a Mission: Impossible movie since the second one, before my final shift at the Coolock UCI. Looks like I’ve got a new project #tweet


Twenty minutes in and this #WOSWrestling show is already a marked improvement on that New Year’s special #tweet


No rain up here, but no blood moon either; it’s far too cloudy #tweet


Hopelessly behind with the G1. How many shows are we into it now? Nine? Who has time for all that?! #tweet


#NowPlaying Jesus Piece - Only Self #tweet


Here's a fun, enlightening story on mispronunciations (though many here would quibble with Caoimhe; in much of Ireland it’s pronounced ‘Kweeva’) https://t.co/BQk9xE9HFc #tweet


Have to say I’m disappointed with @DublinComicCon putting all the ‘good’ guest panels on the Sunday only, which didn't used to be the case till this year https://t.co/x49m2htCxu #tweet


Don’t get hung up on that “one amazing paragraph” if it’s not working with the piece as a whole; you’ve got to come to terms with killing your darlings https://t.co/ML0IToBcHE #tweet


There’s Irish Rail’s track engineers at it again with their noise machine in the middle of the night with no advance notice, sigh #tweet


Vader folding Sting up like an accordion after a power bomb will never stop being impressive to me #tweet


Today was my first time on the Belfast train in 23 years. I went over a viaduct - twice! #tweet


It’s bloody warm up here in Belfast today, I tell you #tweet


Tragedy always hits harder when you’ve been to a place or know others who might be there. Thinking of the Danforth this morning #tweet


Ireland: we knocked down council flats to replace them with… prefab council flats #tweet


I’ve got a meeting in Belfast tomorrow and an hour or so to spare beforehand. Where’s good to sit and work a bit opposite Titanic Quarter? #tweet


Today has not gone according to plan, sigh #tweet


Finally watching the iron man match from Extreme Rules and the ‘fans’ are ruining it if I’m honest #tweet


That blurry vision means it’s time to step away from the computer for the day #tweet


'Determined to protect' is not a guarantee of protection. Pay close attention to all the language used here; it will be examined in history texts decades hence https://t.co/ATKyt1emwz #tweet


Look at the sheer bull she's spreading here, like. The EU has made its position clear since the UK chose to leave the union. It's all on you, May https://t.co/NQ4HOCh30E #tweet


Theresa May’s got a lot of talk about what should/shouldn’t be done, has no concrete steps, and still expects the EU to do the UK’s homework #tweet


What is the point of NXT as a ‘developmental’ brand when nearly all of the main roster call-ups are sent back to square one? https://t.co/brWXk9YH3B #tweet


Downloading a promo of the new one from The Necks. Another year of great new music continues #tweet

Just so you know, I don’t recommend pulling a 14-hour day doing brain-intensive work #tweet


Great into to ROIR on Bandcamp by @burn_amb; we’ve all got that Bad Brains one but the Bush Tetras comp is phenomenal, too https://t.co/N6czTGfVLE #tweet


Carefully chosen words: May isn’t denying plans for a hard border, she’s only saying that she doesn’t want it to be Brexit’s legacy https://t.co/fzOL80hr0G #tweet


NXT’s Dan Matha used ‘soy boy’ in a tweet. I hope he gets squashed by a vegan #tweet


Facebook’s officially stated position on this, then. But oh yeah, I forgot, they’re not a ‘media’ company https://t.co/x4BzVJMBls #tweet


If your album doesn’t fit the traditional two sides of vinyl, you’ve really gotta earn that extra platter; most don’t #tweet

Just updated iTunes but Apple Music is still broken for me: I can play things, but can’t go to pages, see track lists, etc. Anyone else? #tweet


Just read about Hiromu possibly breaking his neck during last night’s match with Dragon Lee. Wishing @TIMEBOMB1105 a speedy recovery #tweet
