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


Date: October 2021

Getting things done today: left my bike in the shop to fix a flat, and picked up bubble tea from a new place in town on the way home #tweet

###

New cassettes for our Bob dishwasher just arrived. That should see us through to late spring, at the rate we use it #tweet

###

Smart me booked tomorrow off to make it a four-day weekend. Nice going, me! #tweet

###

The latest Covid rule changes are so transparently the result of lobbying efforts, it’s the kind of stuff that should collapse a government. But will we? #tweet

###

RIP Brendan Kennelly, to whom I was distantly related through my paternal grandmother, fact fans #tweet

###

I grew up near Bull Island, and currently live near an estuary; I see the difference. To think the curlew I knew in such numbers are almost gone is unconscionable. Please sign this petition > @Ciaraioch #tweet

###

Caught myself off guard to do some tax prep, got all my 2020 figures totted up. Directly or indirectly, I lost nearly €4K in gross income on the year before > @MacDara #tweet

###

This is me. I mean, I’ve never been officially tested for it, but yeah > @RealFPJr #tweet

###

Anyone else having issues with Google Alerts? I haven’t had any emails since Monday, and I would get usually multiple daily hits #tweet

###

Looked up next week’s times at the local fleapit: Venom: Let There Be Carnage is in three screens, Dune is in one. Good luck with that #tweet

###

I’m sorry, but who goes around door-to-door selling home alarm systems at twenty past eight in the evening? In the dark? #tweet

###

Cancelled my Netflix sub, and really everyone should; hit the TERF defenders in the wallet where it hurts #tweet

###

Anyone who worked at or went to that OTT show this evening: I mean this is all seriousness, what are you like?! > @MacDara #tweet

###

Took the plunge and finally signed up to Wrestle Universe; now I’m spending my Saturday night watching joshi, like I wished I could do in the ’90s > @W_UNIVERSE_eng #tweet

###

Watching last night’s Rampage. How good is Daniel Garcia? Like seriously, what a find #tweet

###

Rock for Light back on sale at Juno; just snapped mine up. Maybe yesterday was a blip? No one else is getting it in, it seems > @MacDara #tweet

###

Gah, waiting months and Juno sells out of the Rock for Light LP within an hour ffs. How many did they get in, two? #tweet

###

That’s our flu shots sorted for this winter, so #tweet

###

Do other people get headaches after they shower or is it just me and my crappy sinuses? #tweet

###

Got the second-last clear w/splatter LP, lucky me! Now, will it be 33 or 45rpm? I mean, the album’s only 17 minutes long > @Willowtip > @MacDara #tweet

###

It wouldn’t be a Saturday morning without Bee hate-watching Titans in the other room #tweet
