Happy New Year

Time to hit the gym!

Waterford Pride

Here’s a little video from Waterford Pride and more particularly the parade. This was a good fun day as far as I remember! I look lovely as Dorothy on the Wizard Of Oz float!!

Today’s song is Agadoo by Black Lace

I demand every single one of you gets up and does the dance routine! It’s new years eve so party like it’s 2012 for the last time!

Agadoo do do

New Years resolution 3

Again, this is so me!

Love Is My Drug

Again, another Wanna Bees video I’m not in but this was from our launch. Roxxi Sparks decided to do a bit of Ke$ha coz she loves her. She’s very fond of a medley is our Roxxi!

Today’s song is There Must Be An Angel by Eurythmics

Not to be confused with the band formerly known as Rythmix from the X-Factor or the charity of the same name. Good old Annie Lennox. She’s a bit of a weirdo but she made some great tunes, this bein’ one of them. Fair play!

New Years resolution 2

LOL!

New years resolution

Bad Romance

I’m actually not in this video! LOL it’s the Wanna Bees doin Bad Romance. Leanne Murphy is the one singin. She won Dignity Has The X-Factor the year before and started workin with us. She’s amazin!

Today’s song is Black Velvet by Allanah Miles

This song has haunted me for years! No matter where ya go to a karaoke there’s always some girl that gets up and does Black Velvet! I’ve heard it murdered more times than poor Allanah woulda ever hoped for. Valerie is startin to be the same.

Sayin that, the original is a good tune!

New Years resolution 1

This is me!

new years cat

Time Warp

This is the second of the videos from our launch of the Wanna Bees in Dignity Waterford. We’d such a laugh workin on this show. It was actually New Year’s Eve and we decided to just have lots of fun! Which we did! This is the Time Warp from Rocky Horror Picture Show.

Today’s song is You Drive Me Crazy by Fine Young Cannibals

This song reminds me of something but I can’t think of what it is. I don’t really know what else these lads did but fair play to them for this one. Real 80s tune. Clearly there’s a Muppets version!

Thursday, 27 December 2012

Are you thinking what I’m thinking?

This is funny!

Last Thing On My Mind

2 years ago we launched The Wanna Bees, our very own Glee club here in Waterford! They’ve become a big part of our entertainment line up in Dignity and they can be found with us on the Saturday Show most weeks. This is the first of the videos from the launch night. We performed Last Thing On My Mind by Steps which is something I’d been dying to do for AGES!

Today’s song is Kokomo by The Beach Boys

I clearly wanna go to all these places! Ya know me and a holiday!

Actually I can’t embed the Beach Boys version so try this one! Its better!!!

When you have no carrots

You have to improvise!

Gaffs - The Best Bits

Well the idea to do a Best Of for Gaffs just came one day when I thought of putting all the hello bits together which is what I did at the start of the video and then it just went from there. Lookin back at this there really was some classic moments! We filmed in Ireland, Switzerland, Austria, Germany, Slovakia, Hungary, Belgium, The Netherlands and The USA which is pretty impressive when you think of it. Joanna really has been around. I can see it workin as some form of reality TV show! The video ended up really shaky for some reason so just ignore that.

Today’s song is La Isla Bonita by Madonna

I always liked Madonna’s stuff from back in the early 90’s. It reminds me of bein a young girl runnin around in me ma’s heels! This is one of them songs that makes ya wish ya were lyin at the pool in Playa Del Ingles havin a cocktail! I’d love a holiday!

Merry Christmas!

HO HO HO!!!!

Santa claus naked

Gaffs Episode 36 - Christmas Tree

Aww! Happy Christmas! This is the last ever Gaffs video! I’d always planned to have just 16 episodes in season 2 coz there was 16 in season 1. In between there was also the 4 special episodes. Since we filmed and uploaded this I’ve been asked so many times if there’d be another season and bein quite honest I know there can’t be any more. Things have moved on a LOT since then and I just don’t think it would work anymore. It’s nice to look back on though!

Today’s song is Baby It’s Cold Outside by Cerys Matthews & Tom Jones

HAPPY CHRISTMAS!!! Hope everyone got something nice off Santy! I thought with the day that’s in it that you’re all a bit fed up already with Christmas songs so I picked one that’s not that Christmassy. Instead this one just has a bit of a wintery feel to it. I love it.

Monday, 24 December 2012

It’s Christmas Eve

Let’s hope Santa can make his deliveries!

Ryanair santa

Gaffs Episode 35 - Portlaoise

Ah this was a fun night! I was in Portlaoise doin a gig with Demi, Regina and Tranny Ward and it was a good bit of laugh. It was very random to say the least and meself and Demi thought it’d be a bit of laugh to film a Gaffs video. I have such a laugh whenever she’s around. She’s a mad bitch. I haven’t been back to Portlaoise since so at least I have a video!

Today’s song is Driving Home For Christmas by Chris Rea

Well it’s Christmas Eve today so some of yiz will be drivin home for Christmas and what better song to listen to than this tune by Chris Rea. It’s gas coz I do always listen to it as I’m drivin up the M9 to Dublin. There’s a lot more drivin to be done in America though than here in Ireland. We’re just a small island, although I wouldn’t want to be drivin much further than Dublin.

Where’s the mistletoe

This gives me an idea…

mistletoe naked

Gaffs Episode 34 - Broken Down Car

This episode follows on directly from the previous episode AND the one before that! Ya probably won’t be surprised to know that the car wasn’t really broken down however I did break down there another time which is where the idea came from. I never realised how nice the view was from up there. Sadly the car really did break down a few weeks later, actually the engine blew up as I was driving to Dublin airport on the way to Poland. Poor Betsy! I miss her!

Today’s song is Step Into Christmas by Elton John

This is a happy little number! Elton John seems to suit Christmas. Maybe coz he looks like he’s wearin Christmas decorations some times. How do ya step into Christmas?

Saturday, 22 December 2012

Special delivery

I’d do this!

santa poison

Gaffs Episode 33 - Joanna’s Car

This was something we decided to do on the way home from Kilkenny which was episode 32 of Gaffs. We thought it’d be a laugh filmin a video in the car coz that hadn’t been done since at least Gaffs episode 28 when we did the drive by in Finglas. At this stage I was livin in Waterford and this was my regular trip home twice a week. These days Kilkenny is only 25 minutes away on a motorway.

Today’s song is Christmas Tree by Dustin

People from outside Ireland will probably know Dustin from the time he represented Ireland in the Eurovision which I think he should have won. In Ireland though, Dustin is a Christmas institution from his appearances on the Late Late Toy Show and general madness. We’d be lost without him.

Frosty in the hot tub

It was never gonna end well!

snowman hot tub

Gaffs Episode 32 - Dignity Kilkenny Again

This is the second video in Dignity Kilkenny. The first one was the night of the launch. I loved Kilkenny. I was there for 2 or 3 nights a week for a whole year and I got to know the people so well. It’s such a great little town and everyone is lovely. I was made feel so welcome. Sadly Dignity Kilkenny only lasted a year before closing which was very sad. My nights were moved to Galway and Waterford afterwards! I still do the odd thing in Kilkenny though and keep in contact with a lot of the regulars. I miss it terribly though!

Today’s song is Christmas Through Your Eyes by Gloria Estefan

This is another mad one coz Gloria Estefan isn’t really the type of singer you’d associate with Christmas but here she is givin it welly. I like Gloria but she’d be a bit Cuban for this time of year. Is she still goin? Ya don’t hear much of her these days.

Thursday, 20 December 2012

I Can’t Feckin Hear You

Stitch up from FeckTV! Enjoy!

Gaffs Episode 31 - Chambers Cork

I’ll be honest and say this is one of me least favourites of all the gaffs videos. This was my first gig in Chambers in Cork and I was hosting Mr Gay Cork. I’m tryin to think who the contestants were. I know one was Davey Walton coz he won and another was Konrad Im. Both of them are great lads. While I do have some good memories of my time in Chambers, sadly its also where I saw the end of my time in Cork where I’d spent a lot of time over the years. Sadly someone tried to protect their own interests and decided to make a play to get rid of me. Clearly I got my own back and the horrible bitch got sacked 2 weeks later. I haven’t had any interest in goin back since.

Today’s song is Most Wonderful Time Of The Year by Andy Williams

Me da absolutely loved Andy Williams who sadly is no longer with us. This is a song that’s been played on Christmas mornin for many a year in our house. Fair play to Andy, he was always lovely to listen to. I like a lot of his songs but I put that down to me da. He left us with some classics.

Wednesday, 19 December 2012

The Cayman Islands

Here’s a stitch up from FeckTV to make you LOL!

Gaffs Episode 30 - George Hotel Limerick

This was a strange one. I’d just done a gig in Riddlers/66 and had gone back to the hotel alone (of course alone, what do you take me for?!) and was a little bit bored so decided to film a video. What was pretty awesome though was that Sharon Arseburn filmed a response video from her side! Just went to look for it and can’t find it sadly! It was hilarious.

Today’s song is It’s Gonna Be A Cold Cold Christmas by Dana

Ah Dana! I met her when I was on the All Ireland Talent Show and she was a judge. That was an experience. I actually only know one other of her songs which is the one she won the Eurovision with but this is a lovely little Christmas tune! Puts a smile on me face!

Tuesday, 18 December 2012

Provisional licence stitch up

Here’s another one from FeckTV!

Gaffs Episode 29 - Coco’s Gaff

This is another one I really love. This came as a bit of a surprise to Coco when she saw it coz she didn’t realise that I was goin around stealin things from her. I could be wrong but I think this was the night that we filmed lots of the awfully haunted stuff. We had to speed up the video loads so it would all fit in.

Sadly I gave her all her stuff back.

Today’s song is Christmas Time by The Darkness

This is one of the newer Christmas songs that’s become a complete classic! I love it. The Darkness kinda only did a few songs and then that was it. Haven’t heard anything from them in years and I liked them! This is such a great tune!

Monday, 17 December 2012

Green Fingers stitch up

This is one of my favourite ones! Remember to keep an eye on FeckTV for more videos.

Gaffs Episode 28 - Finglas Drive By

This is probably one of me favourite Gaffs videos we did. It was filmed in Finglas and it was late enough one evening. The idea was that we were going to do a mock drive by shootin for the laugh. We ended up gettin stuck at a traffic light for ages at the start so I had to just keep talkin to keep it goin.

The sound effects for the gun shot were added in afterwards which was unusual given that Gaffs is usually shown as it was recorded with no editin. I enjoyed this. I won’t reveal who the person we “shot” was!

Today’s song is Christmas Wrapping by The Waitresses

I never actually heard of any other songs the Waitresses did but this is one of me favourite Christmas songs coz it has kind of a rappy feel to it. I haven’t been able to find the video for it though I did find this very cool video of light effects in time to the song!

Sunday, 16 December 2012

Car tax stitch up

Here’s another stitch up for ya today from FeckTV!

Today’s song is Walking In The Air by Aled Jones

This is the song from the Snowman. I love it. It’s so Christmassy and nice and all the snow makes me feel like I want to be at home on Christmas Eve with the fire on. Not that it snows very often but still. Aled Jones went on to sing at Welsh Rugby matches and the like. I think his voice broke.

Saturday, 15 December 2012

Fake notes stitch up

Another stitch up from FeckTV.

Today’s song is Santa Claus Is Coming To Town by The Jacksons

They’re mad for the Christmas songs aren’t they The Jacksons. They do loads of them. It kinda weirds me out sometimes when you walk into a shop and there they are singin yet another Christmas song. I’ll leave yiz to just press play. Enjoy!

Friday, 14 December 2012

Drugs mule stitch up

Here’s a stitch up from FeckTV!

Today’s song is What’s This from A Nightmare Before Christmas

Now this is an odd one because it’s a Halloween movie AND it’s a Christmas movie! That’s real confusin isn’t it? I actually haven’t seen this in years so I must have a look at it.

Thursday, 13 December 2012

Group photo!

It’s a wet one! I’m so gonna try this at the next wedding I go to!

Today’s song is Scrooge from The Muppets Christmas Carol

This is me favourite film ever. I love the Muppets as ya probably know if ya read the blog often enough. Ya might have seen me do a number with them on YouTube. Scrooge is the openin song of the movie and it’s great at settin the scene. Interestin fact - A Christmas Carol is me favourite book! See I can read!

Wednesday, 12 December 2012

Deserted Island

LOL! This is funny!

Deserted island

Gaffs Episode 27 - Dignity Kilkenny

Dignity Kilkenny opened 3 years ago and I was there at the openin. Over the year it was open, I made it me own and become close to all the gang there. Was ragin when it closed! Would love to get back there some day! The first night featured me, Charmin, Tyra and Gloria Holle and was a good laugh and clearly we videoed it!

Today’s song is Somewhere In My Memory from Home Alone

Not just my favourite Christmas song of all time but probably me favourite song EVER! I love this so much. Home Alone is a movie that reminds me of growin up and I’ve watched it hundred’s of times over the years. I love havin a listen to this around the Christmas time coz it puts me in the Christmas mood. Think I’m gonna head off to watch the film.

Tuesday, 11 December 2012

Gaffs Episode 26 - Charmin’s Apartment Building

What’s funny is when we filmed this, only Charmin lived here and now I do too! Expectin all sorts of stalkers now. Charmin was on holidays by the way and so me and Gloria Holle were in charge for the evening PLUS it was Eurovision and we all know how much of a Eurovision fan I am! I wish I still had hair like that!

Today’s song is Mary’s Boy Child by Boney M

I love Boney M. When I was small me ma used to play them all the time in the house so I grew up with them. Lookin back on it, they’re a bit mad aren’t they? This was one of their Christmas tunes and when I look at the video I wonder what in the name of our lord’s birth they were at?

Monday, 10 December 2012

Gaffs Episode 25 - Youghal

This is one of the most random videos we shot for season 2. I was hostin a mystery bus tour to Waterford (It wasn’t a mystery to me!) for GayCork.com and we ended up havin all sorts of madness like playin games and slaggin people out the window. We had a stop off in Youghal and I thought it’d be a good idea to get a video in. Found out later that Tenerife is a lot further from Youghal than I thought! ;-)

Today’s song is Rocking Around The Christmas Tree by Mel & Kim

Before ya ask, this is not the same Mel & Kim that sang respectable. This is Mel Smith and Kim Wilde who came together to record this little number. I remember hearin this from when I was a child but I clearly wasn’t even born when it came out. It’s a happy little song isn’t it!

Sunday, 9 December 2012

Gaffs Episode 24 - Dignity

Meself and Charmin did a lecture in Cork and decided to do a little tour of Dignity afterwards. It’s kinda weird seein it back then compared to now. The floor is black now. I think this was sometime around 2009? Oh and Fidelma the chair broke and is gone now!

Today’s song is Fairytale Of New York by The Pogues & Kirsty McColl

This is probably one of me favourite Christmas songs EVER and it’s by an Irish band. As much as I’m sure Shane McGowen is a total pisshead, it has to be said he writes a good song when he puts his mind to it. Kirsty McColl sadly died a few years after in a speedboat accident. This one is more often the last song of the night in the clubs around this time of year so you’ve very likely heard it lately.

Saturday, 8 December 2012

Gaffs Episode 23 - Charlies Again

When we filmed season 1, lots of people were goin on about the episode we did in Charlies so I decided to do a bit of a reprise of it the night of AMI 2009 and as ya can tell by that stage me voice was gone from the screamin. What a great night actually. Charmin and all the Breakbeat crew where there with us as ya can tell.

Today’s song is When A Child Is Born by Johnny Mathis

This is a nice relaxed one after all the madness and dancey Christmas songs we’ve had over the last few days. It’s a great one to hum along to when you’re bein dragged along with the crowd in Tesco. Just hum really loud and everyone will leave ya alone!

Friday, 7 December 2012

Gaffs Episode 22 - Paramount Hotel

In 2009 me good friend Charmin Eletrik took part in the Alternative Miss Ireland and her and the Waterford gang were stayin in the Paramount Hotel. We decided to do a bit of a Gaffs video and all sorts of madness took place. Interestin fact, Louise and Sinead represented Munster in the All Ireland Talent Show the year me and Eric represented Dublin! What a great night!

Today’s song is Merry Christmas Everyone by Shakin’ Stevens

I wonder why his name is Shakin’. I presume it’s not his real name. It’s probably Paul or Terry or something along those lines. This is a great tune though. It’s makin me feel all Christmassy. Someone wrap up Union J and put them under my tree!

Thursday, 6 December 2012

Gaffs Episode 21 - Orlando

This is first Gaffs of season 2 and the first and only one outside Europe! We decided for the bit of laugh to start the season in Orlando after comin home from shoppin one night. The room was awfully weird but what do ya expect on a cheapo holiday!

Today’s song is Merry Christmas Everybody by Slade

Ah I love this! So much so that I did me own version. This has been covered by everyone, although mine is obviously the best. It’s one of those happy ones that makes ya want to dance around Dunnes when it comes on.

Wednesday, 5 December 2012

Gaffs Episode 20 - Millers Marsh

Miller’s Marsh is a car park beside where I live. The Gaffs video we filmed here involved a naked Paul Ryder and was removed from YouTube! I still have a copy if anyone wants to buy it! LOL

Today’s song is A Spaceman Came Travelling by Chris De Burgh

This has to be the weirdest Christmas song EVER! Its about a Spaceman comin to see the baby jesus which clearly must have been in some edition of the bible that I never read! I always thought Chris De Burgh was actually Christy Burke when I was growin up but turns out he isn’t. To be fair, even if it is a bit random, its a great tune.

Strangely enough there doesn’t seem to be a video for this song. I must make one!

Tuesday, 4 December 2012

Gaffs Episode 19 - Clarion Limerick

Strangely enough, this was the second Gaffs video shot in Limerick that didn’t make it into season 1. We decided not to use it because I wasn’t the host. The only other episode where that happened was episode 20 in which Paul Ryder hosted instead but given the fact he was naked in some of it, we removed it from YouTube. This was shot in the Clarion in Limerick while we were down for Alternative Miss Limerick.

Today’s song is All I Want For Christmas Is You by Mariah Carey

The Mariah version. That’s the original and I’d still say the best. It’s one of those songs that comes on and everyone goes “ah” when the slow bit is on and then when the fast bit comes on they all dance around like mad in their woolly Christmas jumpers while tryin to get off with their boss at their Christmas party. Not that I ever did that thank god. I’ve added Justin Bieber at the end coz the young people do like him too. Although, I’m not that young and I like him. Maybe that makes me young??

Monday, 3 December 2012

Gaffs Episode 18 - Jury’s Limerick

This is the second video not to have made it into season 1 but released as an extra. There’s no intro to it because the format wouldn’t work coz it was recorded on a camera phone. That’s why it looks shite. I liked me hair there actually.

Today’s song is I Wish It Could Be Christmas by Wizzard

What a great Christmas tune! For years I remember seein this on Top Of The Pops and other stuff like that! Top 10 Christmas singles of all time on channel 4 loved it! It’s the type of song ya put on and dance around to so that’s what I’m goin to do now! Wish me luck!

Sunday, 2 December 2012

Gaffs Episode 17 - Me New Gaff

This was originally filmed as episode 4 but because it was too dark we never used it. We decided after the first season ended to put up the 4 episodes that never made it to the season and so that’s where 17, 18, 19 and 20 came from. This gaffs episode was actually filmed in the apartment above Instinct in Cork!

Today’s song is Do They Know It’s Christmas by Band Aid

Ah this is a great tune! I’ve done me own version with Charmin and the gang from Dignity which I included below! They’ve done newer versions of this song but the original is still by far the best. Look at the heads on them. 1984. That’s a long time ago!

Saturday, 1 December 2012

Gaffs Episode 16 - Brussels

Brussels is the last episode of season 1 of Gaffs and it’s one of my favourites. I say that every time don’t I! Me and Charmin have a bit of a bond goin back a long time so whenever we do a video it’s lots of fun. The hotel was actually lovely and I liked Belgium. Funniest moment has to be when the camera man gets hit with the lift door!

Today’s song is Last Christmas by Wham

I think it’s time to start with the Christmas tunes, mainly coz that’s the mood I’m in. This is one of those real Christmas classics, I mean who doesn’t like Wham? Its been covered by everyone from Glee to Joe McElderry and it never gets old, a bit like George Michael! So get on your Christmas jumper and get bobbin along to this!

Friday, 30 November 2012

Blasphemy

I shouldn’t laugh but this is kinda hilarious! And me a christian!

Blasphemy YMCA

Gaffs Episode 15 - Amsterdam

This is one of the strangest Gaffs videos we’ve done, mainly coz the camera cut out halfway through seein as we never had one of them European converters! We said Charmin collapsed or something but that’s the actual truth. Lady Gaga had only unleashed herself on the world at the time so we were mad into it. June Taaffe’s Youngfella is a great laugh. Amsterdam is mad!

Today’s song is The Sun Always Shines On TV by Aha

This is a lovely song. It reminds me of me walk to work of a mornin back in the day coz Dermot, Dave and Siobhan used to play it the odd time on 98fm. I used to get fierce looks walkin through Finglas singin this.

This is a live version coz they won’t let me embed the video. Bastards.

Thursday, 29 November 2012

Left the WHAT on?

This is funny!

tampon text

Gaffs Episode 14 - Cavan

This is one of me favourites. I got a bit happy with the brandin in the hope that someone would sponsor us. We did have a no smokin room but that didn’t stop us. It was the Spar Christmas party in the Slieve Russell hotel in Cavan which was lovely. Ian is lovely. He lives in London now. This was when Quinn Group actually had some money!

Today’s song is I Just Called To Say I Love You by Stevie Wonder

Ah good old Stevie. This song makes me wanna put on a pair of sunglasses and play the piano!

Wednesday, 28 November 2012

I’m so angry…

I made a sign! LOL!

I made a sign

Gaffs Episode 13 - Budapest

Ah Budapest, the city where nothing was open! We stayed just off one of the main street and there was all sorts of weirdos walkin up and down the road over us. We were right beside Burger King and it would have been handy if it was open after 9. The perverts across the road were starin in on me gettin ready. This was the last place in Central Europe we went to before we left!

Today’s song is Bette Davis Eyes by Kim Carnes

This song always reminds me of Regina George because of the time she sang it in karaoke and didn’t know any words other than Bette Davis Eyes so she just sang that bit over and over again. What a tune though! Puttin this on repeat for the day.

Tuesday, 27 November 2012

Irish girl sunbathing

This one was doin the rounds a few weeks ago! Spot the Irish girl sunbathing! No no, the OTHER one!

irish girl sunbathing

Gaffs Episode 12 - Bratislava

Of all the hotels in all the the world that I’ve stayed in, this is probably the weirdest! It was like anything you’ve ever seen of the Soviet Union on the telly although it wasn’t even in the Soviet Union. Very strange. The Hotel Kyiv where we stayed was the number 1 hotel in all of Czechoslovakia back in the day. It was an experience if nothin else! Bratislava is in Slovakia by the way.

Today’s song is How Will I Know by Whitney Houston

Ah good old Whitney. Gone too soon. Back in the days before she fell apart she had this belter. Many a time have I done this in the mirror or danced around to it gettin ready to go out of a Saturday night. Go on, put your curlers in and give it a go!

Monday, 26 November 2012

Another literal video

This is probably the best one of these literal videos out there! Yesterday we had Rebecca Black and Friday and now today it’s Bonnie Tyler and Total Eclipse Of The Heart. This one had some problems with copyright so they now have a cat in the video! Kinda weird!

Gaffs Episode 11 - Vienna

So meself and Gloria continued our holiday through Central Europe and ended up in Vienna which I have to admit was very nice altogether. The place we stayed in was a small little room which is why half of this video is of me shoutin abuse out the window which is always fun.

Today’s song is Money Money Money by ABBA

Which is a bit ironic seein as I’m so broke! Ah well. Haven’t done this in a while, mainly coz I don’t be able to blog until night time and then that’s just a waste of a song of the day at that stage!

Sunday, 25 November 2012

Friday - Literal version

THIS IS HILARIOUS! Ya may know already that I’m a HUGE fan of Rebecca Black. Well here’s a literal video version of her song Friday which makes me lol! I think I need to watch it again!

Gaffs Episode 10 - Munich

Ah Munich. The home of BMW and very little else. I wasn’t too impressed with Germany let the truth be told. There wasn’t really much to it. There wasn’t much goin on either. Not even a German to be seen. I realise I cursed a lot back in the old days. The place was nice only it was very small.

Today’s song is SOS by ABBA

SOS is probably one of my favourite ABBA songs! LOVE IT!

SO WHEN YOU’RE NEAR ME DARLING CAN’T YA HEAR ME SOS!!!!

Images of DEATH

This is a bit morbid isn’t it!

Images Of Death Images Of Death Images Of Death Images Of Death Images Of Death

Gaffs Episode 9 - Feldkirch

This one was filmed in the Holiday Inn in Feldkirch in Austria. What in the name of Jayzis was I doin in Feldkirch I hear yiz say? Well as part of our trip through Europe, we decided to have a day in Liechtenstein coz clearly they want me to represent them in the Eurovision when they’re allowed in and so we thought it would be nice to see. I eat a lot of chocolate in this video but then again, I ate a lot of chocolate overall on the holiday but it was nice. Feldkirch’s a bit random but the hotel was nice. It had a swimmin pool which always cheers me up!

Today’s song is Take A Chance On Me by ABBA

Good old ABBA always help put a smile on me face. Julie Walters did this very well in the Mamma Mia movie. I love Julie Walters.

Sing along – Take a chance, take a chance, take a ch-ch-ch-chance

Skanger Me Banger

Back in the days of Bebo I came up with the idea for Skanger Me Banger I collected a few pictures. Thought you’d like to see!

344robinchav128621Carchav_2Fiestanova1Plaid

Gaffs Episode 8 - Zurich

Believe it or not, this is one of me favourite videos in the series. Meself and Gloria had arrived in Zurich the day before and thought it'd be fun to do!!! It was actually early enough in the evenin coz we went out after! The bells started goin off in the video and it was kinda funny coz I kept complainin about it. I really like me hair like this actually! I fell off the step as well although ya can't really see it much. After this video went online loads of people started shoutin at me "Knock off that noise" EVERYWHERE!! The next day we headed off to Feldkirch and Liechtenstein!

Today’s song is Flashdance (What A Feeling) by Irene Cara

I’ve never actually seen this film although I’ve seen the very end of it at least 5 times for some reason. There’s something for me to do list now. Great song though. It makes me want to put leg warmers on and run through the city. Although not just leg warmers coz that’d be streakin!

Mosney

Anyone who was born in the 1970s or 1980s in Dublin and the east coast of Ireland will have fond memories of Mosney. It was a holiday camp built that was hugely popular with people who would spend summers there. Sadly the camp is now used to house Asylum seekers but there are rumours that it will return to its former glory for the 2014 tourist season.
