Yesterday, in a demonstration of why I should be kept out of kitchens, I cut my thumb on a potato. Yes, on the potato itself. Not the knife nor the potato peeler I was also using. I was trying to knock off an offshoot and sliced my thumb. Ow!
Still, dinner was quite nice. Chicken and potato in a Rogan Josh sauce.

I went to see Michael Palin speak in the National Concert hall. He is such an intelligent, charismatic and entertaining man. He spoke for an hour and a half on a variety of topics and it was always interesting and novel and you felt like you could listen to him for the night. I did manage to get a book signed afterwards too. I didn't really talk to him though - I figure dignified silence is better than inane rambling.

I have so much to write. And submission dates are pending. But it turns out that my last college essay that I submitted on March 25th went awol and so I had to send them a new copy this week. So are there going to be consequences if the next one due is a few days late? Probably not. Of course, not writing the other things does have consequences for my career. Yeah. Ah well.

Now I am going to have roast chicken sandwiches and download articles about futile medical treatments. Who wants them? Who gets them? Who pays for them? And so on for 3000 words.

The election was 4 days ago. There were 166 seats to be filled in the country. So far 154 of them are filled.
I vote in Laois Offaly. Electorate 106,312. Votes 74,234.
5 seats to be filled. So far, 4 days later, we have filled One seat. And that was on count 8!
A recount was called on count 10 yesterday, around 5pm or so.
I was up till 1230 last night waiting for a result. And then I went to bed. And then got up and went to work. And then came home from work. I was joking when I hoped I wouldn't miss anything!
They are still recounting...

All I missed was that blood was spilled at the count centre\


ETA:
After the recount, apparently the electorate is 108,142. This has confused me. Surely recounting the votes does not change the number of people in the constituency who were eligible to vote??
1055 of the 74000 votes were spoiled. I imagine a large part of this was because the ballot paper was designed by someone with a blindfold on. There were 21 candidates - but there were 31 empty boxes on the sheet. I'm reasonably well educated, and I had to examine it carefully to cast my vote correctly.

I´ve updated my I Was There map! I really need to spend more time in Africa. And possibly the Middle East. And I need to go to Switzerland... But for the time being, Bolivia is good!

The Great LiveJournal
Outage of 2005


During the outage I ranted over the government conspiracy that had destroyed LiveJournal to get rid of all the immoral people. Then was disappointed to learn it was only a power outage.
