Life of Lu 26/06/2012

Firstly,
When I wrote the date on the title above I wrote 26/06/1996.
What the heck is that all about????
Did something happen on that particular day all that has stuck out in my mind?
Memories anyone?
Weird.

Lu news.
Well. 8ish weeks in and I still really enjoy my new job.
Really. I do.
My colleagues are fabulous.
The work is interesting.
What more can an employee ask for?
Due to the very stubborn natures of my adorable colleagues I ended up in a night club last Sunday night.
It was my first time in a night club in about 3 years.
Do you want to have a look at what we got up to?
I should point out that these photos are a result of the handy work of two of our girls Claire and Ailsa.


Macarena anyone?
Reach for the sky?
A quick step?
Smile?
Pose
As you can see, limbs everywhere. But the craic was pretty mighty.
I have at least another 4 weeks working with these guys.
Hopefully the fun shall continue!

I'm on the look out for acts coming to the festival this summer.
I am quite excited about being here for it.
It looks amazing.
My stalking radar will go off the roof if I'm not careful!
So far I know that Rhys Darby is coming.
I love him.
If you haven't seen the Boat that Rocks, Yes man, or Flight of the Conchords then you are missing out.

My dad and brother are coming to visit this weekend.
I AM SO EXCITED!!!
The boy and I are going to familiarise ourselves with the old couch and inflatable mattress for the week.
How fun!
Seriously though, I haven't been this excited since I saw John Locke from Lost.
THAT is saying something!

Muchos love amigos!

Missing Marguerite. 14 years later.

On this day, 14 years ago, the world lost a little bit of its magic, when at 11pm, my little sister took her final breath and life changed as we all knew it. She was only 17 years old. 17 years and 19 days to be exact. As I sat here today reading all the lovely messages written about her, my heart soared with pride in the fact that in her short time with us, she managed to have such a big impact on so many people. Marguerite Mary O'Dwyer, an ambassador for mischief, mockery and for having a marvellous time. I miss her so much.

It is funny how every year there is something different that I focus on for the anniversary. I never choose my train of thought, I think the year since the last anniversary chooses it for me. Last night, I got fairly plastered on wine and when my other half went to his bed, I sat and sang along to every sad song I could think of. I had a wee chat with Mags before I went to bed and woke up this morning well rested and ready to seize the day. 
I got quite sad a…

Day 2 - 20 facts about me

I always struggle with challenges such as these, where I have to give some facts about myself. Can I think of 20 things and if so will they be any good? Pressure! Well... here goes....

1. I love letters. Not bills and what not, I mean real, news filled letters. I have a handful of people whom I write to, and they write back in return. Alas, I am not very good at replying in a timely manner! I have had penpals since I was about 11 years old. Two of which were from Belarus. Their names were Tatiana and Irena. One of the highlights of their letters were the wee boxed stationery that they used to write on. I loved it so much.
2. I dislike sheep. Immensely.
3. I have 2 tattoos. One of a fairy, and one of a fox.
4. I love ducks and foxes. And Hairy Coos.
5. I think puns are severely underrated.
6. My favourite book is Jane Eyre.
7. My favourite author is more difficult... maybe Jasper Fforde... though the compilations of Irish tales by Sinead DeValera have a special place in my heart as do …

Day 3 - My favourite quote

This is a tough one because there are a number of quotes and phrases that I try to live my life by, or reflect upon. I am not sure if I have a favourite.
My life  mantra I picked up many years ago, but I don't know where it came from.
That is 'Fuck it or Fix it'.
I use it all the time. If I have a problem then fix it. If I can't fix it then fuck it. Move on.
That is sometimes easier said that done but it does help me out a lot sometimes.

I also really like a quote by Thomas Edison.
'I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that it won't work'.
It is a very comforting sentiment sometimes.

I read a book years ago called 'The Art of War' by Sun Tzu. I highly recommend it.
In that book he says 'The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting'.
I have always like that outlook.
