Those of you who think you have a fun monday evening all worked out have nothing on me. Tomorrow I get to soak a small, angry lady rabbit in warm water long enough to soften up the poop she has SOMEHOW managed to get dried into the fur around her lady bits and quite possibly *into* her bits - I'm not sure, I'm not an expert in rabbit reproductive plumbing. Theres good odds I'll have to take her to the vet about this one.
Jesus christ, no wonder I smoke.

Minister for Health Mary Harney has described the Irish Nurse’s Organisation proposals for a new pay deal as unrealistic.

Dear Mary,
These people have to poke and prod around in septic open sores, pacify beligerent senile patients, deal with human misery, work night shifts and ridiculous hours and clean up the aftermath of society's worst excesses all the while dealing with the attitude and abuse from patients who are at their wits end because of the massive waiting lists to be seen in a hospital and/or being off their brains with booze or drugs.
You on the other hand are a politican who will once again this year be awarding yourself a massive pay increase on top of the already ridiculous amount of cash you get paid for mucking things up on a constant basis before blaming everyone else. I can see how the nurses earn their cash, can you explain (without claiming credit for something someone else did) how you earn your pay. I'd ask you to kill yourself but then you'd be making another mess for another underpaid profession to clean up.
Yours
Mr Wombat.

Theres a building about a hundred yards away from our office going up in flames. Naturally some git in a lorry parked right outside the window to cut off the view. It looks to be some new block of apartments (under construction) behind spar on [edit] Fenian St.

[more edit] Its out now. One of the more insanely brave members of society (ie a firefighter) went up a ladder taller than the building itself (a good six stories) and stood in the smoke and flames spraying water on it for about five minutes before it went out.
