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

Weeknotes #533-550

The first quarter of the year’s almost done and there’s so much I haven’t written here. I’m well overdue a catch-up, I know. This one may be brief, but it’s better than nothing.

The highlights: Hitting the four stone mark in my weight loss efforts (I’ve dropped more than 57 lbs so far) / Getting stuck into Netflix for lots of TV shows (and the odd movie) I missed before / Trying to cook a proper meal for Bee once a week (I’m a bit behind on this, if I’m honest) / Getting my writing chops back / Meeting the hardcore legend Mick Foley, if only for a few seconds (he appreciated my Cornette Face shirt):

The lowlights: Ireland’s SOPA, obviously / Xmas was nice except for being ill for most of it / Getting ill again in January (I think I’ve had my quota for the year now, thanks) / Almost losing my web hosting; a tweet from me about it turned into a post on Gizmodo (my host is still pretty much incommunicado, so I’ll be switching soon enough) / Realising I missed this here blog’s 10th anniversary on 1 November (It completely passed me by. Has it really been that long?)

Achievements unlocked: 50 lbs closer to my weight goal (with a framed certificate to boot!)
