Hope to see you over  there.

50

Broadband has been down for the past week and I’ve felt like I’ve lost a family member. So in the meantime, I took a photo for Gastronom.ie, below is the photo and what happened to my 50.

Final Exam

I have my final exam tomorrow which is Restoration and Augustan Literature at nine o’clock again. Some of Johnathan Swift’s poems will be examined including his prose A Modest Proposal in which he suggests the Irish Potato Famine would be solved if the Irish ate their children. I presume there will be a comparative question between Grey’s An Elegy in a Country Churchyard and Goldsmith’s The Deserted Village. Out of everything I’ve ever had to read for college the most enjoyable by far is John Gay’s play The Beggar’s Opera; amongst whores and thieves where many tread a fine line between perceived good and evil.

Last Saturday, yes Saturday, I had my Renaissance exam at nine o’clock which was held in the PESS or the building with a grass ceiling. After finishing an essay on Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night a beam of sunlight shone down upon me through the skylight. I had a mini saintly moment until the glare from the white paper dazzled me. In the midst of recovery took a slug from my water bottle and of course it went the wrong way and I managed to spew catch the water on the back of my hands, miraculously saving my paper from a perilous watery death. The saintly skylite beam quickly evaporated the water, leaving no trace of my almost Universe destroying mess. 😀

In eighteen hours I have my exam but at 11.30 tomorrow I’m free for the summer!!! 😀

The Wild Onion

‘Prove it’s your birthday and get a free cookie.’

For some reason I develop an atrocious cold on every Wednesday night and I end up feeling like a puddle of soulless skin on the Thursday. Today being a Thursday, my weekly cold was no different perhaps I ate a rouge Coco Pop the other day. 🙂 Apart from the brilliant news from this evening which I blogged about on Klaraflame but what I didn’t mention this morning is one of Limerick’s best kept secrets.

The Wild Onion is a restaurant where I would usually have breakfast with my mom as a treat. We’ve been customers of The Wild Onion for about five years and anybody who goes there may enter as a stranger but can leave as a friend. Ruth’s banter and Bob’s talent at cuisine is second to none. 

Normally in the cheery atmosphere and snug eatery I have scrambled eggs with toast and orange juice. Mom on the other hand eats hashbrown with sausage with the strongest coffee in Limerick. Today was a little different, my parched throat wouldn’t have been able to handle toast so I solemnly told Ruth I could have orange juice whilst my mom ate her usual breakfast with guilt. Ruth popped back up a few minutes later with a glass of juice with a yellow straw and an extra refill. 

My mom and Ruth briefly chatted while I was conscious of the time since I had to run for a bus to the University in five minutes. After an attack of a hacking cough, Ruth came to our table and gave me a new bottle of cough medicine. Ruth had bought it for herself but didn’t use it since she realised it wasn’t the brand she liked. I didn’t get the chance to thank her enough since I had to sprint for the bus while my mom stayed behind and settled the bill.

I was in such a tizzy when the bus came, I had to flag it down since a big truck was in the way. Unfortunately my headphones decided to soar out of my jacket pocket but the bus did stop for me. Since I was one of the only people on the bus; I slugged back some of the soothing cough medicine….not suspicious at all.

Next time I go to The Wild Onion, I’ll enjoy my usual breakfast.
