    Food cooked for you as you put your feet up is always better than you spending a day in the kitchen cooking.

      Well, I think we can agree to disagree.

Me sitting downstairs minding kids all day (as obv couldnt go to school) waiting on text result so i can go out and do a crap load of work/shopping/stuff.

                    Yeah mentioned it the other day. Symbolic of RDIII’s renovations.
                    At this point the official ones are all mass produced anyway so no reason a good replica can’t get close. Obv shitty ones exist too.

                    I remember one day seeing a dismantled Eames chair on the side of the road near work. Seems to be left there for council pick up when an office was cleared out. I wasn’t sure, but thought it was a genuine one, albeit a few years old. Decided I could put it back together. Came back after lunch with the car and it was gone.
                    Still annoyed about that. I’ve convinced myself that it was real and some sold it for a few thousand when repaired.

                            i know people who could have got it early on a legit technicality but refused as it wasn’t the right thing to do , there’s plenty out there like that
                            plenty in minimising the Coombs story last time (think I might have had a dig at the story too) turned out they got kids of senior staff vaccinated- these people are pretty thick really
                            I know a few people who got it early, I don't think it ever occurred to them to turn it down. Although they were sheepish about saying they had received it.

                                You've got to admit it was pretty funny. I'm laughing here thinking of your and Lao's faces as you watched that.

                                Hopefully there was some secret signal from the bench of 'OK lads, some sucker matched me for the full tank at 999/1'.

                                  Grade a gobshite TBF quite the caricature of the anti everything brigade.

                                  I passed a familiar Irish sight: a semicircle of former council houses, pleasant enough little semi-detached homes of a certain era, gathered around a crescent of green, on the side of the road miles from any shops or services.

                                  These houses were built before car ownership was the norm it is today. As I cycled past, I thought, a man definitely designed that. A man who never had to stand in a bus in the rain with a buggy and four bags of shopping and a screaming toddler definitely decided to put these houses out here.

                                    I thought Barnes could been a bit quicker with the yellow cards rather than allowing Scotland to roll over a series of defensive penalties. I think there is something to be said for the attacking team taking the second or third penalty as a set piece and complaining to the ref that they can't get through a line that's consistently offside rather than exhausting themselves trying to break through a line that is defending by giving away penalties.
                                    That problem might have been a it more obvious in last nights game where France needed to score tries rather than just win.

                                      Penaud would have been better slapping the ball into the dead ball than scoring.

                                      I think Barnes should have given the PT + YC regardless though

                                        In not giving it was he making a mistake or following the rules, he was very clear talking to the TMO, 'if its not touched down we are going under the sticks' and afaik that implies a YC

                                            yup agreed, how can you play advantage but end up in a less advantageous position?

                                              No 1 Son used to do a bit of refereeing he says there's no punishment for penalty offence while a try is being scored.
                                              So it looks like an anomaly.

                                                          worst thing about all this is i have a very close friend who is Scottish, and who is the tightest fucker you've ever met. He NEVER takes bets with me anymore, because he's lost a good few, and mainly because he hates parting with his money for anything. Anyway, during the wales game last week, i managed to goad him into taking a bet for yesterday (this is for peanuts mind you), but still, managing to get him to accept it was a big deal. i'll never hear the end of it now

                                                            The only equivalent I can think of would be being 13 points up and fouling the black ball in snooker, giving your opponent 7 points and they then knock it in ftw.

                                                              Certainly in other sports you can allow play to continue and then hand out cards once complete.

                                                              I remember once engaging in what can only be described as 'dicking about' with the ball just outside my own 25 in hockey when the sneaky forward I hadn't even realised was there robbed the ball off me and hurtled towards goal. I attempted a filthy sliding tackle which almost but not quite sent him to hospital and he escaped to round our keeper and stick the ball in the goal as I was lying there watching in horror.
                                                              Then as my entire team, bench and supporters were roaring abuse at me, the umpire fished into his pocket and dealt me a yellow, sending me to the bin.

                                                              My plea for mitigation of 'have I not suffered enough?' didn't earn a reprieve.

                                                                                          Anyway, because I used to like getting in early to beat the traffic into city centre with the bonus of finishing early, I rarely met him so he rings me about a week in and says I'm just ringing to touch base and have a chat about the way I'd like to do things moving forward

                                                                                          It was the first time I've ever started laughing directly at a manager. He didn't see what was so funny so I explained that I'm a lowly van driver, breakfast rolls and garage tea. No need for the corporate mumbo jumbo. Amazingly he never used the phrase in conversation with me again lol.

                                                                                                    Possibly the worst corporate corruption of the English language to date.

I was back and forth with this one in work telling her over email no need to email me at all about this and that begob. She drops in and I see her in person. I got hit with the thunderbolt. I found myself saying maybe you should link in with me next time. ffs self loathing knows no bounds.

He seems pretty busy and has his leaving cert which must be shite to be doing during covid but I'd say it will be class when it's done. His Instagram looks fantastic.
