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


Category: Tweets

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

###

Soooo did anyone else here order The Body & BIG|BRAVE’s collab LP direct from Thrill Jockey? Supposed to be out but I haven’t heard a peep #tweet

###

New Carcass balances out the boring song titles (“Kelly’s Meat Emporium”? Meh) with one of their finest puns (“Eleanor Rigor Mortis”, ha!) #tweet

###

My pen is hovering over “‘Load shedding’ becomes part of the vernacular” on my Ireland in 2021 bingo card #tweet

###

Apparently I’m a “far-left extremist globalist”, according to some bigoted gobshite #tweet

###

Slept better last night. Not great, but better. And the itching calmed down a lot today; Bee suggested balming with rooibos and it seems to have helped > @MacDara #tweet

###

No sleep two nights running and I still want to scratch my legs off but I managed to take a kind-of nap this morning so that’s a win, right? > @MacDara #tweet

###

So yeah, those insect bites? My legs are covered in massive incredibly itchy welts. Hydrocortisone cream and more antihistamines to the rescue, I hope > @MacDara #tweet

###

Almost missed the promo for the new Kowloon Walled City in my inbox! #tweet

###

Got bitten alive by invisible midges while mowing in the front garden yesterday evening. Now doing the back, oh joy! #tweet

###

Got my green Liger fig from @RingsideC in this morning’s post and, er, I think there’s something missing… > @MacDara #image

###

The otters are wonderful, but can we talk about the lord of the manor wearing a Neurosis shirt?? > @rtenews #tweet

###

Remember the old days? When people on here would talk like a pirate on the 19th of September? I miss that #tweet

###

I was only thinking the other day that I miss when AEW had their logo on the ring canvas, and then they go and make my dream come true on last night’s Rampage #tweet

###

Screw Radio. Didn’t even care it was basically an endless loop of Fatso Jetson’s ‘Bored Stiff’, El Bad’s Warp’ and that one Oxbow song > @intrnetdaughter #tweet

###

I’ve got a sudden urge to watch Rich Hall’s cinema documentaries. Are they on iPlayer or do I have to scrounge them up by … other means? #tweet

###

Come and See is phenomenal so I’m really looking forward to this > @TheFlenser #tweet

###

Different levels of fame here, but: Mike Watt (generous with his time and thoughts), Michael Wincott (unfazed by a credit card snafu) and Gerard Butler (20 years ago; seemed excited to be known, but in a sound way) > @DanDotLewis #tweet

###

Thread; our govt has no interest in the people’s needs, but every interest in maximising private profit > @RobJCurley #tweet

###

I see everyone’s positivity and I want to share it … I want WWE to prove me wrong, that they won’t screw over Big E #tweet

###

First time out on my bike in over a week and within minutes I was dangerously close-passed. It’s a disease, it really is #tweet

###

If all you’ve ever watched of wrestling is WWE—where all the kinetics are in the shaky/zoomy cam shots and flash cuts—I can see why other companies’ visual styles might look comparatively sedate and “overexpose how fake it looks” #tweet

###

The difference now is that back then, the WWF and WCW were competing for the same market: people who watch wrestling. WWE’s market today is B2B, and they’re making more money than ever (on paper) so there’s no incentive to change > @PuroPodcast > @MacDara #tweet

###

Someone please remind me I need to stop putting it off and pay & file my tax this month #tweet

###

Nice to see all the love for the reunion of a band named after a Minutemen lyric #tweet

###

As excited as anyone else for #AEWAllOut but I won’t get to see it till tomorrow evening so I should probably stay off Twitter starting now > @MacDara #tweet

###

Hey you know what? That Stardom pre-show match was great. More of that, please #njwgsDay1 > @MacDara #tweet

###

Antigen test arrived this afternoon … and it’s negative. Phew! > @MacDara #tweet
