The Xmas sweet treats stock is in Lidl. I repeat, the Xmas sweet treats stock is in Lidl #tweet

###

Pet gripe: the capital T in T-shirt describes the shape of the shirt, so it’s never ‘t-shirt’, and I don’t like ‘tee-shirt’ either (though I’ll accept ‘tee’ on its own) #tweet

###

Browning meat is apparently anathema in Irish cuisine so Irish stew, coddle et al can go straight in the bin > @notreallyjcm #tweet

###

It’s a bit humid, he says as he wrings out his T-shirt #tweet

###

This is tiny in the big scheme of things, but it would be great if WWE would finally cancel NXT TakeOver: Dublin so I can get my money back #tweet

###

Catching up on the news: so Dublin is at Level 2 but with ‘modifications’, which means it’s not Level 2, it should be Level 2.5 or something. But you can’t say that! Boo scary! > @MacDara #tweet

###

Even with Ira’s guitar freakouts, Yo La Tengo provided a perfectly reasonable experience, three times in 12 months > @tabsout #tweet

###

I damaged my hearing (no tinnitus, thankfully) seeing J Mascis + The Fog in 2001, and have worn earplugs to shows ever since. I later saw Dinosaur Jr on two occasions which were tame by comparison > @droog811 #tweet

###

We know what is right and we know we shouldn’t commit crimes. But there are still those who feel it is a discussion that should be had, why is that? Tune in from nine for Legitimising Dangerous Bullshit on 2fm #tweet

###

My new desk-listening cans just arrived; these ones actually fit completely over my ears, which is honestly a revelation #tweet

###

Saw this video last night and I was like, nah it can’t be that easy. Tried it tonight with a pot of double cream; two minutes later we had spreadable butter, I kid you not > YouTube #tweet

###

How many versions of Jackie Mason’s Frank Sinatra story are there? I just found one that was totally different to the one I remember #tweet

###

Little scroungers lighting fireworks on our road; as soon as I pulled my phone out it was hoods up and they legged it > @MacDara #tweet

###

I just found the website files for my journalism MA class’ magazine, which I thought I’d lost in a storage snafu > @MacDara #tweet

###

Wasn’t expecting a Saturday delivery since they’re not a thing here but I’ve now got my replacement Blonde Redhead LP. Top marks to @normanrecords for customer service #tweet

###

I don’t regret my UCD arts degree one bit. But if I had the choice (with points levels) of today back then, I would’ve got offers for every journalism BA in the state. Just saying… #tweet

###

I quite like the RTÉ website’s new design. It’s not quite worth the licence fee but at least it’s something #tweet

###

MacDara: That’s me 10/10 / Mac: Allowable from friends 8/10 / McD: I’ve outgrown it now but will let it slide 7/10 / Dara: What my family calls me 5/10 / Conroy: You’ve…decided MacDara’s my surname ’cause it has Mac in it, haven’t you? -10/10 > @MacDara #tweet

###

Favourite bit of this week’s Dynamite? Chekhov’s cake didn’t get smushed in a brawl and everyone got to enjoy a slice at the end of the segment #tweet

###

Thought it was my own janky settings when my webcam wouldn’t work on a Teams call this morning but it seems to be a common issue #tweet

###

Heads up: Lidl are doing their €99 Lenovo tablet deal again from next Monday. I use the one we got this summer for streaming and reading all the time #tweet

###

I’m not ready for it to be this dark at 9pm already #tweet

###

I’ve seen the trailer and still nothing beats the David Lynch one for me #tweet

###

Site’s back up; unrelated server issue, apparently. I now return to my scheduled obscurity #tweet

###

Supposed to be doing some work but my website is down so I’m waiting on the support chat instead #tweet

###

Irish Rail tree-cutting on the line across the road = us not getting any sleep tonight #tweet

###

I still can’t tell whether they’re spoofing or really believe the nonsense they spout. Either way it’s awful > @BBCNewsnight #tweet

###

Received my 20th anniversary reissue Blonde Redhead LP in the post today and it’s lovely except there’s a deep scratch in the first track of side B. I’ll be on to the shop in the morning, so #tweet

###

So many Matt Hardy takes but here’s my theory anyway: he insisted he was fine; an agreement was made to skip to the final spot; it was still a bad call and the match should’ve ended when Aubrey called it #tweet

###

Harris Yulin in Death of a Salesman, if he counts as famous > @maxthegirl #tweet

###

Does WWE not realise their independent contractors aren’t portraying their wrestling characters when they’re on streams, etc? > @SeanRossSapp #tweet

###

I see the Green Party just destroyed any chance of a future by playing whataboutery #tweet

###

Little tip from me: a dash of amaretto syrup in your morning coffee makes a world of difference #tweet

###

I only got a few things this Bandcamp Friday: @numerogroup’s Mohinder reissues, and Noël Akchoté’s discography deal > @porter_esq #tweet

###

First time watching a #BeyondFriday selection on here and it’s Penitentiary III, which is technically a wrestling movie #tweet

###

Press releases that use obscure acronyms but don’t define them: I hate you #tweet

###

A holosuite accident leads to Moriarty gaining access to DS9’s systems, and facing a battle of wits with Constable Odo > @JoeSondow #tweet

###

Odo is at first pleased when Guinan opens a bar opposite Quark’s, but her mysterious backstory draws his suspicion… > @JoeSondow #tweet

###

Tried the new ‘Scan as you Shop’ thing at the big Tesco and it took about 10 minutes longer than self-service as the managers haven’t trained their staff in it ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ #tweet

###

More evidence that Irish Times courts stories aren’t subbed > @IrishTimes #tweet

###

Covid app just notified me of a potential exposure. Thanks a bunch, arseholes #tweet

###

Sharing this for any no wave aficionados I know who haven’t yet heard and might be in a position to help > @JCContortions #tweet

###

#NowPlaying Sprain - As Lost Through Collision #tweet

###

Post from the US seems to have improved a lot as my copy of the Sprain LP got here in just five days, weekend included #tweet

###

The fireworks have reached Dundalk, as of the last day or two. Which suggests they’ve come from somewhere other than Jonesborough #tweet

###

I see Keith Lee has to wear a top now because god forbid we see a bare barrel chest on the main roster #tweet

###

It’s just dawned on me, there’s a lot of Honey Bubble in Q And Not U’s Power. Or maybe that’s just in my head #tweet
