- It happened to Ireland, and anything that happens to ireland is funny
- Once they ran out of potatoes they were screwed. Talk about over-dependance
- Potato blight was originally an English strain of crop failure
- The english stole all irelands food so they starved
- They tried to cure potato famine by just growing more potatoes- which then died
- Because it makes alan cross
- because it makes ricky laugh during lessons
- Because nobody helped ireland when it happened
- the english, despite having taken their other food, only sent mediocre aid. Woo!
- Because tom wood does not understand

The highlight of my evening concerning us was when Bert Miller from 'Bert Miller and the animal folk' said that he liked our stuff and would come to see us again sometime if he was around.
We came prepared with a trick up our sleeves for the evening- in the sense that we had no sleeves! HAHAHAHS all around. KInd of. Possibly one of the lamer things we have done at a gig...
If there are any pointers to pick up from our performance on the night, it is that we need to do more songs that people know in order to be recieved well amongst people who have not heard us before. It is ok for our friends, because they already know our base set. A couple of ideas are floating around for potential covers though...
- Eye of the Tiger
- Let Me (we) entertain you
- A medley of : Pinky and the brain, Power rangers, Teenage mutant ninja turtles, pokemon, danger mouse, stingray (basically saturday morning TV themes from the 70s-90s...)
Hm, lets see, the everstone... its a piece of crap. Can't stand it. It is a waste of one of prof Oak's aides in my opinion, they could have chosen something much more useful, i would have been happy with a poke ball to be honest.
For you non players (who aren't cool as a result), an everstone is an item you can give your pokemon that stops them from evolving. It is essentially useless to all experienced gamers.
Poor Dr. D. In any case, the everstone is awarded -1,000,000 out of 10. Anybody caught making any practical use should be shunned by society and sent somewhere where they don't want to go and cannot escape. Much like Ireland.

It began downhill into stoke gabriel, and after having given blood the week before, i felt much better than i did at ivybridge- which was the day after i gave blood. So yeah, i started off really strong, because downhill really suits my running style. I was actually leading the 150 strong race for the first kilometere or so.
However, as fast as i was going, i was beginning to get worried. I was going awfully fast because of the downhill thing, but i really hoped there would not be too many hills. Boy, was i wrong.
the sad thing is i didn't realise that as far as you went downhill, i would have to run back up that distance at one point. So yeah, a good performance considering i started off too fast. Also, i got a free sports massage at the end!

I would recommend it, unless of course you are Alan O'Brien, in which case, no one wants your Irish curry-ridden blood. No offense, but the potato famine was hilarious.
But thats not the point. I was scheduled to run the Ivybridge 10k the day after. I thought i'd be fine, but i wasn't. It really wasn't cool. How dare the NHS steal an eighth of my circulation for a good cause!
After 1k: "Hmm, this is strange, i don't feel like i'm running as fast as i usually do..."
After 2k: "Oh god, a hill. Ugh, its huge... energy... failing..."
After 3k: How interesting. All of the blood has disappeared from my hands and feet..."
After 4k: "I can't feel my feet! My legs hurt!"
After 5k: "Screw this, i'm gonna slow down and finish the race with my health intact"
After 6k: "I can't see the guy i was chasing anymore. How depressing."
After 7k: "I'm glad i slowed down a bit. running is hard when YOUV'E GOT NO GOD DAMN BLOOD!
After 8k: "Oh, there goes James Dent. He'll be pleased he has beaten me. Wait til he finds out i'm not even trying. hehe."
After 9k: "My energy is ... sadly LESS THEN 9000..."
After 10k: "Glad thats over. I'll go to sleep so i can make some more blood for next time"
I finished at 40 minutes 1 second. thats about 4 minutes off pace for me! but about 8 minutes off PINEHOUSE

After they had gone, me and Mike had to wait on the start line. Just then, this random dog came up behind us and took seriously the biggest shit i've ever seen. We were like, oh man, thats just wrong. We then realised the wind was blowing in our direction, and the smell wafted towards us. We still had like 2 and a half minutes to go.
All in all, we had to wait on the start line with a massive shit sat behind us. I was so glad when 3 minutes was up and i could run away from it.
So, snorlax... There are only two in the game, and you require a poke flute to awake them. This pokemon has possibly become one of the most annoying pokemon in the game because it limits your access to fuschia city and cinnibar island by FALLING ASLEEP IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ROAD!
It is annoying to fight as well, as it has a high defense, high HP and knows the rest move, restoring all its health.
However, should you decide to catch it, it is probably a good choice for your party. Despite the fact it is a normal type pokemon and does not have any super effective techniques, it is a powerhouse if you train it well. By teaching it the move snore, it is able to attack even when it is asleep. Being one of the heaviest pokemon in the game, the power of its body slam is awesome.
My Rating: 8/10On the whole, annoying if your fighting it, awesome if you have a well trained one. Also, as a morbidly obese pokemon- why does it never die of heart failure? How unrealistic. I mean, PINEHOUSE
- A guy with dreadlocks and a kilt
- Some bald guy who danced to the bear song
- in the words of alan, 'some wannabe milfs'
- wannabe milf hunters
However, despite the poor turnout, we played well and our friends enjoyed it.
Onto the church gig: This was a whole different matter! practically everyone from the village turned out to watch the wide range of talents on display. We got an amazing reception from the crowd of churchgoers and Eden played well too. It was surprising miles better than the gig at venue, but you know how it is.
Next gig: Frock and roll, berry head hotel, sunday 17th May

As some of you may know, as time passes, creatures evolve and adapt to their surroundings. This is sort of what happened to the word 'penis'. This is fairly frequently used in conversations, you you can only expect natural selection to occur. Over a few days, the word 'penis' evolved to peinis, and as time went on it changed again to poynis.
This stayed at poynis for a while, until a new directional selection pressure forced it to become the word 'poinhouse'.
Finally, this word adapted to become the ultimate word- kind of like the apex predator of the vocabulary world... PINEHOUSE was born...
It has found a comfortable niche in the market, as a word nobody but us knows. Me and Ricky played a Dick and Dom 'Bogeys' style game with the word PINEHOUSE, and it was the most fun i had ever had... so far that day.
Which is funny because in the meantime wade and graham were in tesco, and as they were paying they heard PINEHOUSE!!!! from inside.
