I write this while travelling back from Limerick, where I just saw a pretty poor performance by Munster Rugby team against Newport Gwent Dragons. We did win, but did not get our bonus point and to be honest did not deserve it. I somehow doubt that we will get out of our group now… Sale will beat us, let alone give us the chance for a bonus point.
Oh well, at least there is only one more work week ahead before the break for Christmas and New Year. I can’t wait…. I need the break.
Speaking about Christmas, that brings me on to Christmas tunes and my Parrot. You see, I have an African Grey Parrot called Monty… he swears a lot… therefore I try to teach him new things that do not insult people so much. This time last year, I had been singing “Jingle Bells” first few lines to him for over 3 weeks to see if, at least once over the holiday, he would sing it for others…. Alas, he decided that he would wait until March. This year I have been trying the words “Merry Christmas”. But he seems to prefer “for f***s sake”… I think I will keep him upstairs when the In-laws are eating, otherwise I suspect Monty may be on the menu.
Ho Ho… Fa la la la laaaa and all that….
