Hello, world. I’m MacDara Conroy, and this is my blog.

Friday Five #19

Yes, I know it’s Saturday night, but here it is anyway:


1. Where are you right now?

At home, in my room, sitting at my computer.

2. What have you lost recently?

Nothing that I know of off-hand. I tend to be quite careful about my stuff. I may forget things frequently, but I don’t lose stuff often.

3. What was the first CD you ever purchased? Does that embarrass you now?

Superunknown by Soundgarden. It doesn’t embarrass me in the least; in fact, I listened to it again a day ago or so after hearing it in work last week. It’s one of the best rock albums of the ’90’s, if not ever, and the catalyst that lead to basically everything I own or listen to now. It was my musical epiphany, if you will.

4. What is your favorite kind of writing pen?

You know, I’ve tried those cartridge fountain pen type things, and I hate them. They’re just not durable or versatile enough. I had a cool stainless steel Parker pen a few years ago that used ball-point refills. Mostly I just use Bic ball-points, blue or black. They’re basic but they do the job perfectly.

5. What is your favorite ice cream flavor?

I don’t really have a favourite flavour, but anything with both chocolate and vanilla in it, and maybe some milk chocolate pieces or something, that would go down well right now. I’m sure I remember one like that when I used to man the Ben & Jerry’s stand at the multiplex.
