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

Friday Five #41


1. What is one thing you don’t like about your body?

Its size; I’m working on it.

2. What are two things you love about your body?

Well I can’t say I love anything about it, but I guess my ears are okay, I’ve never had a complex about them. And maybe my nose. It’s got a normal shape, whatever normal is.

3. What are three things you want to change about your home room?

I need to throw out all the junk that I’ve collected over the years, the stuff that I kept thinking I’ll need it but that I’m never going to use. I must find a method of organising all the books I have, as I would much rather they weren’t in stacks on the floor as they are now. The place also needs a general tidy-up; I don’t think the carpet has seen the vacuum cleaner for a while.

4. What are four books you want to read this year?

Well I’ve become a reading demon again so my list is a lot longer than four, but anywho: last night I finished Dave Eggers’ You Shall Know Our Velocity; this morning I began Michel Houellebecq’s Atomised (aka The Elementary Particles). Skipping the books I currently have on the go, next I think I’ll read Wittgenstein’s Poker, Bret Easton Ellis’ Glamorama, Things Snowball by Rich Hall and The Cheese Monkeys, in no particular order.

5. What are five promises you have kept to yourself?

If I told you any, I’d probably jinx them, so never you mind.
