Politics and cats.

Well it's here. Polling day, a day when Ireland takes to the polls and votes. No more baby kissing, mobile phone oooohing, hand shaking, shoulder slapping, finger pointing, troop rallying, door step hogging, paper cuts, cardboard photos, television debates, Irish speaking, pontificating, newspaper barebacking, waffling, slithering, sliding, disguising, lawn mowing, bemoaning, twitchy-eyed, ginger mingeringly, money shrugging, photo shopped, lying, cheating, accusing, overly tan, overly pale, overly toothy, overly hairy, overly rigid, overly beardy, overly Harney flapdoodle bosh!
It's all hands on deck, for this is a tightly contested election and our futures depend on it. Soon I will avail of my shower, put on some lip gloss and take my self off to the local school and cast my vote.
Here's hoping I've made the right call.

Oh, the following video is for poor old Andraste. They may do stuff to annoy the shit out of us, but at least they do stuff like this too.

Well I have no comments on Irish politics, but for those of you who are active I hope it all ends with a visit to the nearest pub - to celebrate or mourn.

As for the cats, oh I loved the video - I watch youtube every once in a while just to look at people's cat videos :) I want one too!!!! How is your own "cat family" doing? And drama lately?

Hah! Hilarious round up of the campaign season, FMC.
Happy voting!
I miss having cats. I'm allergic, so after my two girls both died at 18 I had to refrain from getting any more.
Lucky you.

Cheers Medbh, it will be an interesting one, too close to call.
Eva, as I type Puddy and the one eyed one are stalking each other around the garden, the one eyed one's tail is like that of a raccoon. The bigger of the cats is passed out under my chair. I have stood on his tail twice today, you'd think he's find somewhere safer to sleep.

Thanks, Cat, I needed a laugh this morning. Luna is ensconced in her own penthouse suite these days, with her own bed, food, water, litterbox, and tree-filled windows. At first I felt bad about it, but she seems pretty happy in there. So...to recap, we spent more money than we could afford on a house that's big enough for us to spawn or to have plenty of overnight guests - and now the second bedroom belongs to a cat.

After the past month or so on the Irish blogs, I'm interested to see who comes out on top today. I guess healthcare is the big issue, right? Mary Harney seems to be universally reviled but it looks like Bertie's going to get a third term. What's his appeal? I've only heard the bad stuff, mind, but he seems like a crook.

That cat video is ace.

It's not him, it's Fianny Fail, one of the largest most traditional parties in the country. What you'll get are legions of folk who have voted FF their whole lives and their parents and their parents and so on, who will come out and vote.
Harney's a bloomin' disgrace.

You Irish seem on the whole to have a far better choice than we Brits. Your economy's booming, your health service is leaving ours behind, and you've social skills (aka the gift o' the gab). Banning smoking in pubs - now that was a false step, I admit. But hell, we're doing the same here from July. Fascist bastards. And I don't even smoke any more.

Egads Footie, are you mad? Not smoking in bars is a sheer delight. And our health service is a shambolic mess.

It's forcing people not to smoke on private premises (which is what pubs are) that gets my goat. If somebody opens a business and invites customers in, it's up to him, not the government, whether or not he allows them to stick burning mixtures of paper and carcinogenic leaves in their mouths. If enough people like you or I are repelled by fag smoke and boycott his establishment so that it collapses, that's his bad luck. But it's still none of the government's business.

I see what you mean, it's all very big brother, but I as non-smoker I just can't bring myself to be upset about not stinking like an ashtray after a night out.

A few weeks before the party said the girl's birthday we were going to youth club on Saturday night and the theme was horror. In this way, there will be no shortage of people at the party. A kids birthday party games party at the park can be a blast on a very low budget.
