Blood on the tracks


Tonight, after dropping Cruise and Robbie K home, while driving through Ballsbridge on the way back into town with Chris and Iano, we saw some guy that had either been hit by, or had fallen under, a car.

He was conscious, but clearly distressed.  Some people were administering first aid.  Some of them may have been paramedics, but I can't be sure.  There was a lot of blood.

I've not really been able to get it out of my mind.  I'm pretty sure tomorrow that I'm going to hear on the news that a man died as a result of a road traffic accident in Dublin 4.

I don't really know how to feel about it.

An introspective aside


I'm 29 years old, and I'm not the man I would like to be. I set very high standards for myself, and I just don't live up to them.

I'm vain. I'm unmotivated. I'm jealous. I'm selfish. My pride will be the end of me.

I let myself down, far too often.

I need a new outlet or I might self destruct.

Happy Christmas.

Sleeping sickness


It's not a secret that I have problems sleeping at night. It has been having a cumulatively negative effect on my life, but that's not what this is about.

Last night I went to see The Nightmare Before Christmas in 3D in Cineworld. I don't have a rabid Jack Skellington fetish like so many people seem to, but I really enjoy this movie. It's only been a couple of weeks since I last watched it, but I was happy to go again.

The 3D effect was pretty good, and it certainly made the first 10 minutes or so pretty enjoyable. After that though, it all started to go downhill. I started feeling kind of dizzy and couldn't really focus. A couple of minutes after that I pretty much passed out. I have no idea what really happened, but after that I was asleep for the entire duration of the film.

I felt like shit for the rest of the night. I went home and was in bed by 11.

Then I was stuck awake until 4am.

Today has been grey around the edges.
