Celebrating 6 years on Twitter

Downloaded my tweets the other week and was surprised to find out so much about myself.  For example, being not long out of a relationship which ended badly, the first year is moribund, emotionally disconnected tweets.  Then I went driving all over California in April 2009, and came back a new woman.  From then on, they get interesting - and delighted that one of the first tweets after that relates to something I really only picked up on later on.  If you know my writing, Twitter, blogging and girl crushes, you'll spot it quickly enough ;-)

I've gone back 2 years as some of them were really just so funny and natural ...

2011-04-14 17:03 Aib staffer at dart st reading a presentation - can't help noticing words "to achieve our vision" - would like to add
..."With everybody elses money"
Note to all you aib staffers who take home work presentations - don't read it on the dart, your owners sit opposite
2011-04-15 22:16:18 High kings have worst vocal technique I've ever heard - every single note is scooped and tuning poor #latelate
2011-04-15 21:57:59 Glad #latelate mentions stigma, have seen staff in portrane treat patients (and visitors) like vermin #nurseratchet
2011-04-28 11:43:35 @coleman4seanad What happened to the bloke who was describing himself as a "housewife?" That obviously went down a bomb
2011-05-01 18:46:50 Arse. Missed the half 7 bus. Now I'm f@@@ed
2011-05-10 22:25:42 Ok she's jesse jones. Did somebody pick her up in the wright venue?
2011-05-10 22:23:49 Whose is the botox woman? #theview #rte
2011-04-29 10:14:36 RT @DianaInHeaven: This is well fucking boring.
2011-04-30 13:10:18 Thank you to those who came and supported us, we took 1st prize for chamber choirs  #corkchamberchoir #corkchoralfesitval
2011-04-30 11:18:53 whoever "composed" that thing tribal chamber choir did should be thrown into the lee #corkchoralfesitval
2011-05-12 15:42:20 Actually in 1982 a period red brick in Dublin 6 was going for 40k - same as a large 4 bed SD in Swords. Old was so, loike, yesterday
2011-05-12 15:41:36 Sorry GMAC properties, but properties in Dublin in the 80s didn't cost 80k, nevermind properties in Kerry. Or 500k, "discount" auction? Fail
2011-05-14 21:40:52 Irland nul points. Bye bye JedCrap
2011-05-20 13:39:21 AVOID THAT CHICKEN!!!! #queensvisit
2011-05-20 13:37:48 Nice thing about a visit to the English Market is that it always looks good #queensvisit
2011-05-20 13:36:10 Ah go on, the pigs trotters. You know you want to. #queensvisit
2011-05-20 13:34:05 Dead proud of Cork #queensvisit
2011-05-20 13:49:51 I have to admit to being totally beside myself #queensvisit
2011-05-20 15:14:55 Numerous choirs, including St Patricks Day in Cork in 1994. Was in the audience on "Play the Game" in the 80s.  #secretTVpast
2011-05-27 14:59:02 Amused by Eamonn Ryan's elevation. My mother is convinced he is a poof and calls him "Nancy"
2011-05-29 13:08:48 Breakfast in dublin. Lunch in cork. Dinner wherever?
2011-05-28 15:14:21 There is so much pretension in dublin. I really hate it when I see somebody pompous  getting snooty with waitresses
2011-06-13 12:08:38 Whats repulsive about Tom MacMaster is using a gay woman to manipulate: tacky old patriarchal assumption that they "think the same as a man"
2011-06-30 14:28:13 Apple moving support to Cork city centre: is that so its ultra low paid support staff can afford to get to work?
2011-07-29 20:07:38 at Reich effect at Cork city hall. Have to say music is decidedy non Reich
2011-07-25 18:26:5 staying in a real live ghost hotel. Bizarre experience
2011-10-25 09:32:00 Hooray for Glenda Lynch #rte #stopSeanGallagher
2011-06-10 12:17:00 Nice to see that the unions have struck some kind of deal over JLCs,the usual "protect existing members and fuck everyone else" kind of deal
2011-06-10 10:06:37 As for Chase myth that GSK has no emergency plan, greatest load of utter rubbish, GSK creaks under the weight of plans for every eventuality
2011-06-10 10:05:58 As of 2002 Novartis had 2 incinerators and GSK had 3. Pfizer applied for permission for a 3rd which incidated they had 2. Probably fewer now
2011-06-10 10:01:53 For those interested there are at least 4 incinerators currently burning toxic waste in the Currabinny/Ringaskiddy area
2011-04-10 12:51:26 Twitter for iPhone
@JoannaRyde good point. Do you exist? What if you have an alter ego or multiple personality disorder2011-04-09 18:37:56 For no reason, the entire stadium just started waving flags and singing
2011-03-08 21:38:06 #skyliving not my usual viewing but programme on gay husbands surprisingly compelling
2011-03-08 08:49:18 "Left Alliance will fight sale of state assets 'to the death'" - please do, and die quickly and quietly if you can.
2011-03-03 01:30:06 is Corksick again
2011-03-01 17:22:44 I do love the Dept of Finances Bertie job. It wasn't me. Nobody told me.  I wish somebody had've told me. Oh dear. It was somebody else.
2011-03-04 10:23:04 Signed up for TCD Front Gate online. http://bit.ly/hWDXZM Very scary that I still recall my student id. I left in 1996, dropped out of MLitt
2011-02-25 01:21:11 I know I've attacked him many times (including in person) but how did FG nominate that moron Dara Murphy in Cork NC? http://bit.ly/hE6uU9
2011-02-23 15:18:07 @SwearyLady Yah, I know, its as farcial as the Cowen Underpants portrait saga. http://bit.ly/f3jHux In Belfast Telegraph, starts "Teen held"
2011-02-23 08:56:34 Anybody know who the boy is who was arrested for writing "wanted for treason" on FF posters? I'd like to contribute to his defence fund.
2011-02-23 00:53:30 BTW my Uncle (ex Sports sub editor of the long defunct Irish Press) insists that a certain candidate in Dublin 4 "set Dockerells on fire"
2011-02-21 07:42:49 Why is it the 2 dumb blondes who never stop yapping always home in on me on the 7.35 Swords Express?
2010-12-31 12:34:08 Delighted to see Bushmills 400 anniversary and the very good 21 year old single malt in airport. Credit card weeping
2010-12-26 00:49:48 The cat went missing for 2 days and then kindly turned up tonight just in time for the evening movie. No idea where she was.
2010-12-24 22:05:05 No sign of the cat today. We reckon she has scaled a few garages and can't get back in reverse
2010-12-24 20:17:56 There is something creepy about the Priests
2010-12-14 20:09:38 Poverty in Ireland is definitely getting poorer
2010-12-18 09:49:02 One of those intensely cruel moments when you think, "my god, what a fat arse!"
2010-11-24 16:40:41 #imnotleaving because I can't
2010-11-15 23:01:01 Orla Boylan's Vissi d'arte would bring a tear to your eye #operaireland
2010-11-15 23:00:23 Poor old Tosca got a bit of a raw deal, and Orla Boylan didn't have a podium to chuck herself off #operaireland
2010-11-15 19:38:42 At the opera. I definitely need a fur coat for occasions like this
2010-11-06 00:05:23 Good lord. #jeanbyrne appears to be reading the weather in what seems to be a slip. That or the iron wasn't working.
2010-10-11 18:28:47 Advert envy: ESB trying to have an even bigger, more expensive ad than EirGrid
2010-09-23 11:44:03 Amused at ppl who think St Lukes quiet. In my time there it was car thefts, joy riders, burnt out cars, loony with gun, 1 murder + bus crash
2010-09-15 17:07:07 EBS investors ideas are interesting and realistic. Lady beside me on bus smells divine.
2010-09-10 20:14:33 In Mallow! Where's the loo!?
2010-06-25 11:06:49 O great that other twit is gone.
2010-06-23 20:35:54 Ran out of M&S wine so now drinking unicum which tastes like an old sock. I woul rather drink tea. If anybody likes, its yours. Free. EW
2010-06-23 16:50:57 Celebrating my newly found unemployedness (or is that freelanceness?) with a bottle of M&S red and Jamaican jerk
2010-06-21 10:32:45 Amusing lady on #PK - what is this? I have a friend I can send.
2010-06-14 16:57:33 I love how FG can downgrade, Richard Bruton, potentially heave Enda Kenny, and yet not remove somebody like Anne Devitt?
2010-06-14 12:08:26 And it deflects from superficiality of the banking reports and how they utterly ignore the values/beliefs govt policy was based on
2010-06-13 19:37:40 The only good story was that he could actually play the pipe organ, and occasionally did so in public :-)
2010-06-13 19:37:05 Watching TG4 doc on Pres Hillery. Very much part of FF tradition of finding an uncontroversial middleweight and shitting him at Irish public
2010-06-13 19:13:22 Cockney prick upstairs shouting at something - either tv or long suffering polish tart - hard to determine which. Put on loud Crystal Swing
2010-06-13 16:25:22 "Since it is national bike week, I hereby invite you all to cycle up to mine.
PS I live afew streets off the top of Patricks Hill."
2010-06-01 23:40:45 Jean Byrne - a picture saves a thousand words. Me Jean, you Tarzan. #jeanbyrne #cavewoman http://twitpic.com/1t4qhp
2010-05-31 16:52:04 Haretz footage not exactly convincing - it appears that the IDF soldiers were attacked by a barrage of childrens toys and a household hammer

2010-05-29 20:12:49 lol! terrible dress, good song #eurovision #iceland
2010-05-29 00:46:23 To the gowl upstairs: is it really necessary to bang your slapper so loudly at nearly 2am?
2010-05-28 17:55:35 Tis Evelyn. She nicked Jean's necklace. Woozy Atlantic chart up again. And I haven't even opened a bottle yet. #evelyncusack #rte #weather
2010-05-27 09:54:23 I've just discovered Autostraddle, a near relation to the Sword, only for girls who do.
2010-05-26 23:42:24 The great body hair debate http://www.thesword.com/index.php/cultureschlock/3746-men-look-better-hairy-did-you-know-this.html
2010-05-25 21:49:09 Una nochy for fortuni dowry groinnage. Lock up your hettie homie chavvies! #jeanbyrne
2010-05-25 15:30:06 Had to seriously restrain myself from buying 6 copies of "Good Vibrations" for SATB. Love Beach Boys!
2010-05-25 15:21:26 On a happier note, you can also get "Don't rain on my parade" from "Funny Girl" for SATB
2010-05-25 15:19:59 Rather disturbed to note that you can buy "The Rose" as made famous by Bette Midler for SATB
2010-05-24 11:58:03 Get them while they're drunk!
2010-05-22 18:13:24 Why is it some ppl end up with squealing piglets instead of children? #grumpyoldwoman
2010-05-22 17:57:53 Strange hotels 1 - abandoned drainpipe http://www.dasparkhotel.net/index.php?lang=EN
2010-05-22 14:02:22 Guy next door is very weird, lives around an increasing pile of plastic bags - male equivalent of bag lady? #flatland
2010-05-21 15:25:17 I think I should post in polari from now on. Nishta bonaroo Jubes to ogle here.
2010-05-21 14:59:21 Is it just me or is everybody losing things this week?
2010-05-21 14:12:19 Its an opera I know, but it works. Nixon in Taiwan #lesserbooks
2010-05-19 16:16:48 Still laughing at Dail "ass" spat. Oh dear.
2010-05-18 13:26:03 Lynch is warm and entertaining, could listen to her all day, her unpolitical correctness is very refreshing.
2010-05-18 13:12:00 In fact Katherine is still laughing and actually, its certainly a kind of funny story to start with, you'd need to be very dour indeed ...
2010-05-14 16:41:14 The guy who described Cowen etc as "cake eating simpletons" is so right. I feel utterly embarassed when I see other countries reps.
2010-05-05 21:42:11 Oh and millitary gear, what was I thinking. With a real 2nd hand pilotka too.
2010-05-05 10:56:11 Audrey McGrath is wearing a top that looks like a load of blinds stitched together.
2010-05-05 10:21:23 Blarney Castle bigot now complaining about employing foreign workers. I wring my hands. They were employed because they didn't scowl at you.
2010-05-05 10:07:31 Ethel Buckley talking sense. No point in paying lowest possible wage as overall quality declines. Why not outsource Blarney to Jakarta?
2010-05-01 01:10:58 The shoegirl legend apparently lives on of its own accord. I'm dead quiet, really.
2010-04-29 21:08:04 Can't really talk myself, currently wearing leather look waistcoast over heavily ripped denims n sneakers. Drew line at leather shorts...
2010-04-29 20:32:42 Jean's zip up number is zipping down! Oops! #jeanbyrne
2010-04-29 18:14:06 Gratified to see however, that jean byrne didn't buy the snakeskin print dress i have my eye on. I mean, if we turned up at the same par ...
2010-04-28 22:13:27 Playing with surf hair again.  Stood on end for a while but I haven't quite mastered the Jedward look yet.  Its more KD Lang circa 1991 now.
2010-04-28 14:24:25 Apparently the deaths of 600 Irish people abroad in last 3 years can't be recorded on Irish death certs.Does that mean you're still with us?
2010-04-21 16:49:23 Knit your own Julia set.  Ah go on #mathematicalknitting
2010-04-20 23:54:50 What is that thing around Jean Byrne's waist? It resembles a chastity belt. It's no dainty accessory.  #jeanbyrne
2010-04-19 14:31:16 Meddling Mickey, our local, "let me interfere and muck it up" agent, is at it again. Pity he can't actually do his own work himself. . .
2010-04-19 13:38:16 Clongriffin is now a town? I've been out of Dublin too long.
2010-04-03 19:45:08 Just learned a new word - "girl crush" - apparently its when one girl feels utter adoration for another girl, despite being heterosexual
2010-04-02 12:28:12 Left my mussels & wensleydale cheese in Dr Mary Favier's fridge last night so baked potatoes it is
2010-03-22 15:44:26 enjoyed BikeSnobNYC's blog this week, esp the photo of the guy doing a cycling race while wearing a tutu
2010-03-22 15:29:56 is still reeling from the news that a very old friend has come out, I truly thought he was the most unlikely, hetero guy there!!
2010-03-21 13:26:44 is about to attck the carcass of Frieda, the travelling drinking St Patricks Day chicken
2010-03-21 13:11:50 is sober today but feeling fiendishly subversive.
2009-07-20 11:11:33 really enjoyed the opening night Prom on Friday, especially the Alto Rhapsody, shame iPlayer doesn't allow non-UK viewers to watch it online
2009-06-18 10:35:00 Who's your Daddy.
