i like that old picture of you and your girl

lxy, Friday, 24 May 2013 02:37 (seven years ago) link

also, i hope you [edited b/c of source oopsie]. [redacted] in advance.

lxy, Friday, 24 May 2013 02:38 (seven years ago) link

that is a clever thread title.

i have a finely balanced curiosity/dread of the second post however

estèlauder (p much resigned to deems), Saturday, 25 May 2013 00:29 (seven years ago) link

fyi she's a reasonably catholic girl and rarely does anything in advance, so if that was your query you can just not bother

estèlauder (p much resigned to deems), Saturday, 25 May 2013 00:30 (seven years ago) link

oh no no no nothing like that. it had to do with your upcoming plans, which i realized after the fact had been posted about on a secret bo/a/r/a/d.

the first part employed a verb, the word "fun," a preposition, and a place name. the second part included a tradional sandbox word that is commonly mispelled.

i have this coworker who has only been with us a few months but is a very funny older man and i love those so i spend a lot of time with him at work and today he said "lemme ask you something. did you go to catholic school?" and i was like no and he said "i would have thought you did." but he didn't say what it meant. as the sandbox's catholic person can you explain it

spite n ease (harbl), Tuesday, 17 June 2014 01:00 (six years ago) link

my first inclination is that he thought you were secretly naughty

but maybe not necessarily?

that's cool because i hate when funny endearing ppl are creepy and also hate myself for expecting them to be

mookieproof, Tuesday, 17 June 2014 02:13 (six years ago) link

Irish name maybe?

but as to where he was heading with the question, idk could be almost anywhere really.

I'm only catholic in the same way that I can jump my own height- once, maybe, many thanks years ago, and even then it was only cos I was small

She has the air of being a lovely girl, no sense in denying it. I mean I'm sure you're a decent cove yourself, irl, but I've only so much to go round.

i have just been offered a house with no noisy neighbours and an extra bedroom and a garden and a shed and stuff but get this rent is 20% LESS than current place

ok we havent looked at it yet and the area is possibly sketchy but i know the owner and we're both tougher than she is so im not hugely concerned

i would like this noted as possibly big news and i would also like somebody to tell me that we definitely wont have any trouble getting out of our current tenancy, thanks

two weeks pass...

my dad sent me a picture of a 1911 census page showing my great-great-grandfather michael's family, including my 7 year old great-grandfather michael. my grandfather, father, and brother are all michael. i emailed back i wonder what great-great-great-grandfather's name was? and my dad said "pete." LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

spite n ease (harbl), Thursday, 19 December 2019 01:08 (eleven months ago) link

well the run had to end somewhere

bet he was peadar rly tho

my dads sister got the same census page printed for them all when it came available a few years back and he opened it in the house i was renting in dublin at the time. the family address for the census was three doors away!

anyway in the same trip home they discovered (tho apparently twas an open secret on the island) that the child in that census- my granda- was left to them by his mother as she was sent to mericay in disgrace. he was raised by his uncle and wife as their own, they being childless themselves.

when they moved back home and he inherited the land, the cousins (otherwise in line) never got over it and scuff up the right-of-way to the pier to this very day.

anyway, michaels all the way up in my lot too, until a pj who ran the smallest licensed pub in the country on the island in the late 1800's according to the sign still in the shed down home last i checked.

esperantzen (p much resigned to deems), Friday, 20 December 2019 00:31 (eleven months ago) link

he was probably not pete, that was my dad's dadjoke. it said michael the elder was a "shopkeeper." i wonder what the shop was. it was limerick, they must have moved at some point because i think my grandfather was from clare. we gotta do a thing like they do on pbs where they showed bernie sanders and larry david were cousins and find out we are cousins but that isn't so hard in ireland i guess, the west virginia of countries

Ah see now that is interesting

Because the hnnngordie pronunciation is sheer Montrose speak, pure RTE and never actually heard in the hnnnnwild

But paschal takes it to hnnnnextremnnnnes

But the boys up the hill, yeah I know fellas talk like that my age- not the exact accent even, but the staccato bursts of suddenly-released furious nonsense.

Dingle was always Dingle but they made it into dingle-an-dangen but there was a revolt and now it's just Dingle again

I was there only last week and it's about as beautiful as we have, but obv the bucks staling the yos would be a concern in terms of a sandbox retreat there

was working fitting kitchens one summer a life ago and I walked into this apartment building we were working on that was getting a lot done on a few different units at once between electrics, kitchens, plastering and all that,so there were strange faces about the whole time. walked into a room getting painted by one of the first black guys I'd ever seen irl (I'm irish btw) and v likely the first I'd ever had spoken with, viz, at high volume from himself, HOWROOBI.
Well you can imagine, rly. I said ? in not as many words, being 16 and totally struck by the moment and wanting not to be unfriendly or awkward but at that stage of development socially where all I was projecting to the world was awkward unfriendliness. bastard had a gleam in his eye as he repeated happily HOWROOBI and at this stage I'm mugging like an early career Hugh Laurie, not wanting to say anything as obvious or stupid as "sorry I only speak english" (and being 16 still as apt to claim honours French, pass irish and three words of Dutch in any such sentence in any case).

dude advances, fuckin gleam in his eye now, slows it right down like I'm the idiot I'm clearly appearing to be, HOWR-OOBI, this is shit, I'm all but about to run out in agonised bewilderment or attempt a Chevy Chasesque bluff of massive proportions along the lines of generic multinational welcoming custom, when a fella walks in thats working with him:

HOWROOBI, GRAND HOWROOBI, GRAND. DOES THIS YUNG LAD NOT TAAAAWKATALL?

fuckin corkmen.

still didnt understand a word out of either of them the rest of the week, but yknow at least it felt better kinda thing.
