The Last Man Turns The Lights Off…

It was only a matter of time before I seccumbed to writing again. It’s been so long that the page itself has slipped my mind. I have come up with so many different excuses not to write and it even got to the stage where I was about to delete the page. There was no real need for that though. I’ve managed to peek in and say hello to whoever is viewing this.
My last few weeks have been good on the whole. Work has picked up mainly due to the bad weather here in this fair isle. The “recession” never holds people back from travelling to relax in the sun. And with new business aproaching, it appears that we will have a busy summer. As you may have seen in previous posts, I have sat an insurance exam back in February. The results are out and I’m pleased to say I have passed. The next exam is October 2009. Roll on! Won’t be long before I have a few letters after my name!
I have spent the last few weekends either in Croke Park or watching Manchester United close in on the double! The Heineken cup semi final was played two weeks ago and now Croke Park is back to hosting GAA for the summer! The first match back is June 7th, between Dublin v Meath. It should be a good game but either way, there will be a full house at headquarters. The business end of the season is usually the start of July right up to the end of August. Let us see what the future holds. Another thing of note is that Croke Park will host a Dublin hurling match against Antrim. It should be interesting to see what kind of a crowd come along for that.
I have been devouring new music in the last month. I don’t know where to begin really. I have been listening to a bit of everything from The Radio Dept, Air France, Grizzly Bear, Animal Collective, Styrofoam, The Crystal Method. If you threw these names at me a few years ago I would gasp and asked if you were joking! But my music taste has taken a sharp turn…for the better I think. Previously I wouldn’t listen to any music if there wasn’t a guitar in it..I think I have gotten over that though! I am loving the Doves album, it is on repeat at the moment.
There is not much else to write about to be honest. Ireland has local and european elections to look forward to in the next few weeks. This should be fun. People who generally would never vote are deciding to this time around. I guess they are looking for some kind of change. They may get it but we will wait and see. Personally I have always voted for the present government but things may change! Until later, ciao!
