And the results are in!!!!!

Well, I'm not going to try to bluff this one out anymore.

Indeed my dear old friend Dave let the drunken partying cat out of the bag. I have of course been to London, many times, and have partied my once little ass of there...

1) I have bowed to the Emperor of Japan.

When I was twelve the then Crown Prince, and now Emperor, Akihito and his wife visited Ireland. His wife had been educated by Sacred Heart nuns, so quite fancied visiting a Sacred Heart school here in Ireland. I was educated by Sacred Heart nuns... I think you can fill in the gaps...

2) My mother drew pictures for Bosco.

Check out the last episode on Volume 2 of the Bosco dvd for my mothers wonderful illustrations :)

3) My cousin is a High Court judge.

The Hon. Mr Justice J Quirke. First cousin once removed or something... he wouldn't know me from Adam, but I am hoping when my deep dark criminal activities are uncovered I'll come up before dear old Cuz.

4) The most senior Garda in Ireland is my neighbour.

He is.

5) I had a letter condemning the death penalty published in the Irish Times.

Back when I used to give a damn about humanity. Now I say, kill everyone. Wonder would the Times print that one?

6) I am married to a Larry Gogan's Just A Minute quiz yearly finalist.

Has this got to a 'so uncool it's cool' point yet? He got a sodastream out of it...

7) I've never been to London, England.

Mr Oubliette came up with the lie. Honestly. Methinks his talents lie with useless trivia. I guess the questions just didn't suit me...

8) I have taken an overdose.

I was two and a half, and they used to make aspirin that tasted like orange tic-tacs. Stomach-pumping-tastic.

9) I have been proposed to twice by men wanting to escape different oppressive communist regimes.

The Cuban one was a doctor and all! What was I thinking turning him down? He could have learned to love me... Ahem, sorry Mr Oubliette - am so glad it didn't work out, where would I be without my Larry Gogan love kitten...

10)When I was three I told jokes about God.

Why is God in heaven?

Because he's stuck with glue!

Really, its a brilliant piece of wit. I should have been a stand up.

It's not too late to do stand up!! and soda stream? do you still have it? does it still work?

Domestic Oub said...

Hmmm... good question about the soda stream. Its not in our actual possesion - but seeing as my m-in-l has never thrown anything out (and I am not kidding here - my children actually wear some vests (ages 2-3) that my husband wore as a baba. So, the soda stream, such a potent example of her childs genius, is bound to still be alive somewhere in the wilds of Mayo.

I say, I say, I say - Did you hear the one about God? Such with glue!! HaaaHaaa Haaaaaa

I was right, yay! still laughing about the emperor of japan, that is quite honestly ridiculous!

Domestic Oub said...

It is a little random alright! And there is loads more to that story, but it mostly covers me in shame, so #I'm not telling it.

I knew I was wrong. I'm gonna go answer mine now.

Domestic Oub said...

Its okay Colm - it is hard to believe that I've been proposed to once, let alone two more times...

This is great craic.Fascinating list of infamous trivia.I remember those orange flavoured aspirin, what a great idea they were! Used to feign headaches just to get a few.Sweets that can kill,briiliant.Wha will they think of next? Alcopops?
Again using my incredible powers of knowing the answer after it has been given ,I will go with no 3.

Domestic Oub said...

TFE, so delighted someone else remembers those aspirin! Everyone looks at me funny when i tell them the overdose story. They really did exist - I was a depressed toddler.

Domestic Oub said...

That should have read, I WASN'T a depressed toddler.

Totalfeckineejit said...

I was.

Totalfeckineejit said...

Still am.

I waited till I was six before I welcomed in the twin forces of misery and angst...
