i saw this fax machine

for sale at the bernard shaw carboot sale once. faxing is fun. you scribble something on a piece of paper, put it in a fax machine and send it to the other side of the world. much nicer than emails, when you think about it. i can't wait until faxing is so old fashioned that it's cool.

i saw this door

i tried to open it but it was locked. weird. maybe it's because it was a sunday? i mean, it says 'open the door'.

i saw this shooting gallery

in temple bar, on east essex street. it is where junkies shoot up. people can watch them through the small windows. sometimes a junkie overdoses and dies and an ambulance arrives and the people watching say 'oh my god' and shake their heads. then they go to starbucks.

junkies are scary. they mug people when they need money. i'm scared that one day they will need my money. but it's no one else's problem, really, i can just take a taxi.

i saw this ice cream van

and realised that the best thing about summer in ireland is that you never have to queue for an ice cream. if you ever feel like having an ice cream, that is.

i saw this cow


at a farmers' market once. mooooooo. farting cows cause more than a third of ireland's greenhouse gas emissions. the easiest way to save the environment, therefore, is getting rid of cows.

i saw this orange bike


in temple bar the other weekend. why would you paint your bike orange? orange is such a strange colour. it reminds me of easyjet. it's a cheap colour.

in dublin, it is fashionable for girls to paint their bodies orange. often streaky orange. i like to think of them as a new race: the orange people.

i saw this jesus

outside a church in portobello. it made me wonder, why does jesus always look so miserable? like he's really really sad. why? i don't think i've ever seen him smile in my whole life. depressing.

i saw these skater boys


at the kings of concrete last weekend. they all were pretty impressive on the ramp. i loved the little one.


i wonder, why were there no skater girls?
