Specifically, watch 1.00 to 1.40. I think it’s a great joke!

I love Pokemon. It was such an epic game. But the new Pokemon Black/White is bordering on the farcical:

Evolves in to "Double Cone with 99"

I mean an ice cream Pokemon? Seriously? They really are running out of ideas here.

Team Rocket would probably want to eat it. Eating a Pokemon? Very sinister

Costa vs Starbucks

January 24, 2011 Leave a comment

Any coffee drinkers? I mean like, serious coffee drinkers. It’s a massive business here in London, with four major companies battling it out for coffee supremacy: Costa, Starbucks, Pret a Manger and Nero.

They serve Costa in HSBC. I find it disgusting. But thankfully, there’s a (actually, there’s 2) Starbucks at the bottom of the building so I can have my fill of that. Maybe it’s because DCU brought me up on it and I can’t deal with other coffee.

Have found myself drinking about 1 liter a day since starting with HSBC. Dangerous levels.

Not as dangerous as this insanity drink

Fianna FAIL is definitely the term. The really have made a mess of the country and I’m not just talking about recently – the comedic, farcical three ring circus that they have put on display over the last number of days speaks for itself and what they say is true. Ireland really is the laughing stock of the rest of the world. It’s embarrassing and shameful.

But no, it’s not just recently. They have been kowtowing to the whim of the Church for the majority of the last 80 years and as a result, it has taken years for Ireland to socially catch up with the rest of the Western World. Following this most recent display of failure, I can safely say I will never vote Fianna Fail for the rest of my life.

If was at home to vote (as Ireland does not operate postal voting outside the country due to more Irish living outside of it than in it) I would safely say I would vote for Labour purely because they are the only ones who 100% support the introduction of gay marriage. I have no plans to get married any time soon, but to have the option of getting married in my own country would be nice. I don’t really care what their other policies are, least of all their plan to fix the economy. All of the parties economic plans are irrelevant – Germany will be dictating those.

So. Please vote Labour so I can get married some day. Tanx luvs

Things about London

January 24, 2011 Leave a comment

Some things I’ve noticed about London since moving here and been home a few times:

  • It’s a very busy city, especially at the weekend. There is always people everywhere all the time. No one seems to want to stay at home. Having said that, I did notice a bit of a lull in January
  • There is always something to do
  • Clubbing is a very different experience than in Dublin. Pubs and disco bars are more the scene as I find them more accessible. Or maybe I’m just getting old.
  • Bar staff are generally shite but of course, there are exceptions.
  • Drink is a lot cheaper but general living is much the same. Accommodation is of course extortionately more expensive
  • The health care system is fantastic
  • The transport infrastructure is generally fantastic, not only in London but the country as a whole
  • London is very ethnically mixed, to point where Dublin is extremely white in comparison
  • People are always in a rush and run every where and it’s a very on demand culture. If anyones ever played any of the PS2 generation of GTA games, it’s a bit like the pedestrians sprinting off for no reason
  • People are generally a bit less friendly
