Sex Education, German Style!

If Ladybird publishing did sex-ed books you would kinda hope they would be as jovial and colourful as this! Still freaky if you ask me but then again i did cringe at the last few scenes of the film Knocked Up, ya know the scene, don’t make me explain!!

If you had to sum up creation in few illustrations, this is how it should be done…

Edinburgh January 2008

Home from Edinburgh last night refreshed and revitalised! For just a 2 night break it really felt like it was longer, and just long enough to forget about work and the rest of the nonsense. I got to see family and got to wander the lovely streets of Edinburgh!

If there was one city I could say I wish Dublin was more like it would be Edinburgh, there’s something that just feels uniquely homely in this city, the cobble streets, the sandstone Victorian houses and the lovely setting that is Edinburgh Castle. In a way it reminds me a lot of Galway city but a bit more special, you just feel like the winding alleys and steep endless streets with steep stairways could tell a 101 stories, and you would want to listen!

I guess it’s just a city I felt at home at and would class myself as a nervous traveller, always assuming the worst will happen but felt at ease in Edinburgh!

Didn’t go out partying too much but would reccomend a bit of grub in the The Filling Station (sit on the Royal Mile) and The Living Room (on George’s Street) for great atmosphere and good cocktails!
Well needless to say I would recommend if you have never been – GO!


My 200th Blog Post !

Mail Order Driving Licence!

It smells to high heaven but seemingly you can obtain a fully legal drivers licence through a website.

Rhe website asks customers to send a photograph, a signature, a copy of a current driving licence or passport and a €400 fee.

Which in all fairness isn’t a bad price if you calculate in instant savings on Car Insurance, driving lessons and infact sitting the test! At first look the site looks well dodgy and then you click on the testimonials and then it comes apparant..

Simon Edge

Simon Edge – I am getting married this year and I know it is going to sound funny but I owe it you people. My fiance lives 40 miles from where I live she works for the same company I do, I would never of got the job if it wasn´t for my driving licence. I work for a courier company and she works in the office as a secretary. Ace!

A nice touch i feel with the ‘blacking out’ of the eyes, im sure no one will recognise “Simon Edge” at all you faker baker! You look like a child porn peddler of the highest order! Why would anyone live 40 miles from their job?!

Don’t ya know someone has to ruin the party though…

The Consumers Association has warned the public against purchasing one of these licences.

The association’s Chief Executive, Dermot Jewell, said the legality of these licences were questionable.

bah humbug…we should give everyone free licences, surely that would solve the problem on the roads and waiting times for driving tests? surely ? 1970’s eh?
