My Dad gave me a box of old documents and photos he found cleaning out the house- there's stuff in there from the 1800's! Loads of photos and letters, now that I'm taking a break from my PhD I might see about borrowing a scanner and digitising everything... it's so much fun though, isn't it?


That must be fascinating to look through! Genealogy is so interesting, I'm a sucker for Who Do You Think You Are? Digitising it all is a great idea, you always be able to access it, even if stuff goes missing over time.

I don't know a huge amount about my family. However, I was related to Michael Collins...so I'm naturally anti-Dev

Yay yay yay this week is actually going to be great

Anti-Valentine's dinner tomorrow night with friends followed by the lawsoc mock trial final.

My friend is having us all over to her house on Wednesday night for dinner and drinks, it's going to be an unreal amount of fun and I'm staying in Dublin so that's even better!

And then on Friday night the Irish Times debate final is on so I'm going with a few friends and staying in Dublin that night too.

Yay for having things to look forward to

Hope you're doing okay Lovely Muffin x

I love catching up on pages in this thread when you're been offline for a day though I'm so annoyed I missed the buffy discussion! I love Buffy!! I've been to many a sing-a-long sessions to Once More With Feeling that I can recite that episode from heart

On other news I made possibly the greatest dinner ever last night- Mexican Lasanga. Possibly the two greatest words ever combined into an amazing meal. And there's leftovers for tonight

And I gets to see the Muppet Movie tomorrow, so excited!!!! Love The Muppets

This reminds me.

One of my aunties was visiting a family member and she had to go to her car to get her phone.

So she got her phone from the car and walked back into the house, she was standing in the hall chatting away on her phone when someone walked out to the hall and then they realised - she was in the wrong house

Made me laugh.

Having Aldi Fruit and Custard Strudel now, so delicious.

The crisis of confidence I'd been having over the last few days has abated

Muffin, so sorry to hear about your Dad. Sometimes you're just doing your best to get through these things and someone says something stupid (or does something stupid) to make it worse.

Krudler, congrats and good luck!

My neighbour lost his brother suddenly today and a local radio station announced it on the news before the family (including him) were informed. Disgraceful.

Did you decide on/apply for a postgrad?

Edit: Just noticed the Chris Brown talk. "Woman Beater" trended on twitter during his "performance" and then his fans exploded with rage. I couldn't get over the sheer volume of people saying "oh get over it, that was so long ago" and the like. They were nearly all women, btw. One of the more disturbing things I read in a while.

Waiting to hear back from college about my FYP supervisor, I hate waiting, the anxiety is making me feel sick. If I have to wait all day tomorrow too I'll go mad

Sorry to hear about your dad The Lovely Muffin, hope he gets better soon!

Yeah, I'm going to apply to UCD and NUIG (UCD will hopefully be a backup...) but just have to get references sorted and I'm ready to go.

I really have to look into what the story is with finances. But I'm going to apply first because I know it'll put me off applying at all if it turns out there's not many finance options!

I saw it Friday, it was UNREAL! Bit embarrassed though, I'd booked tickets and was all "oh, we better get there early, it's the first night it's out so it'll be really busy, you know there'll be queues"...you guessed it, ten people in the cinema!

Also, had a crap crap week last week - this one will be better.

Lovely Muffin, hope things start looking up soon.
