Well, here I am in the blogosphere – after the end of the world has supposedly begun! I can prove that things are going to get worse here – the sun is SHINING! In GALWAY!!!! :O :p
While one person in the States was claiming that “the Rapture” was coming and that we had all better submit ourselves to god, blah blah blah, Elizabeth II finished her state visit to Ireland. Frankly, I didn’t pay much attention to either, as I was moving into the flat and sorting out the Internet connection, but the so-called Rapture didn’t occur – what a surprise (not)! As for the state visit, there were some protests from Sinn Fein and their crowd, but nothing particularly bad; far more people genuinely welcomed her, which is good – I can’t imagine that happening during The Troubles.
And of course, Obama is on a state visit too. Again, I’m not particularly interested – he’s just another politician as far as I’m concerned. However, if anyone wants to read up on it, The Irish Times has a Live Blog here.
Anyway, if anyone wants to comment on any of this, feel free.
