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


Date: July 2018

Damn it, my flight home is delayed. I won’t get home till after 1.30am now. And I’m supposed to be up at half 7 #tweet

###

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

###

This headline is wrong; going by the standfirst, it should be 'Universal free GP care is never going to happen' https://t.co/RpVhmqi3Uq #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

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
