Through The Wringer

There are times when I would dearly love to pour my heart out onto these pages. To squeeze every last drop from it, like water from a sponge, so that I might watch it bounce back. It gets heavy, you see, sodden with every upset, mine and yours. It swells with every tear it sucks up. I am a sucker in the suckiest sense, as greedy for weltschmerz as I am for schadenfreude. I never know whether to laugh or cry. Skadeglädje är den enda sanna glädjen, but what does that make weltschmerz? Honey to this bee.

So lend me your troubles. I'd appreciate the distraction. I'm worried, and facing a worrisome week. This Wednesday I find out if I still have a job come February. Well, not a job, but my job. I don't want to be a victim of the current economic climate. I'm a gaeilgeoir, for fuck's sake. I can't emigrate.

On Thursday my favouritest doggle, The Blonde, is to have surgery to see if she has a tumour on her bowel. And that worries me so much that I can't even think about it.

In my post box today I had three envelopes.
1.(a)Tax for not sleeping under a bridge (which is technicaly illegal in France anyway) also know as Taxe d'habitation - €161.
(b)Tax for the privilege of having a television I haven't watched in a year and a half, or Redevance audiovisuelle (TV licence fee)- €116.
It's (a) and (b) beacause they send the two in the same envelope.How nice.

2. Telephone bill - €54.

3; Bill from the plomber for what turned out to be changing a washer - €80.

Living in France, Priceless.

I have about €120 on my account at the moment.
Hope that helps. Good luck with the job, but if worst comes to worst you could always start Hawaii's first Gealtacht.

Lottie said...

Oh dear, poor puppy. Fingers crossed hat he is okay.

Andrew said...

Worst comes to the worst you just need a new bowel for her. I think Mary Harney grew a spare one sometime in the 80s. We'd broken up at that stage, so I always felt guilty asking her about it.

Noneof said...

I know it's a bowel, but would you really want Mary Harney's? I reckon it would be very tight. Mind you, it wouldn't be the first part of Mary Harney's nether regions that's apparently immune to cancer, so that might be an up shot.

Rua, greim báite on your coat tails said...

Ah no! Get that contract renewed woman, tell them anything and I'll back you up. I need another cynic in the corner of Conradh, Growlers ok but he always gets in fights...

Oh and sorry to hear about the blonde, were it not for her species she sounds like the perfect woman

Rob said...

You deserve to have no worries that are not easily pronounced "as gaeilge"

That's as much as I can do I'm afraid

queezy Rua said...

Oh, and whoever brought up the Harndogs nether regions has just cost me a nights sleep

Ian said...

I will die alone (unless I take a bunch of people with me). Moreover I'm convinced I'll spend the duration between now and then in the same state.

Anthony said...

Sorry to hear that Rosie.

Fat (long story), my cat who I've raised from a kitten, was down the vet last night. She'd gone out the back garden the day before and we couldn't locate her. Cats do the whole "going away to die" thing so I feared she was really unwell. She's quite old now but the vet gave her the once over (few injections etc). She's been through being hit by a car before (dislocated hip and broken leg) so she's tough. Still freaks me out to think I'll lose her sooner or later.

Hope the doggle pulls through.

Conan Drumm said...

I fully expect everyone is going to have poo raining down on them after today's cabinet meeting. With the exception of our evasive tax exiles we'll all be in the same leaky boat together floating on a sea of cac.

Altogether: "Báidín Fheidhlimidh... srl"

Anonymous said...

Watch out for the Finance Bill folks - that contains all the little sneaky bits that weren't mentioned in the Budget.
Rosie - I'm sure your job is safe. Its a specialist job that can't be done by just anyone. Hope the dog is ok.

Rosie said...

that sucks, la Craic. and without taking the piss out of your typo, i like that you spelled 'Gael' as 'Gealt' (which means lunatic).

you're a bad man, Andrew. i almost choked on my breakfast.

i'll send you in to represent me on wednesday morning, Rua. they're bound to listen to your heartfelt and reasoned arguments.

big hug from the bottom of my toes, Ian.

Fat's a great name for a cat, Anthony. the Blonde's name is Alpha but she answers to most anything, including "c'mere, you big dopey shite".

your taxes will pay my dole though, right Conan?

backpedalbrakes said...

Ach, but being a weltschmerzstaubsauger has its troubles too; laughter's an equally effective distraction. So feel free to have a giggle at the fact that Billy's gender analyser yoke thinks I'm "gender neutral"...

Rosie said...

weltschmerzstaubsauger is my new favourite word.

Billy's thingy was 95% sure that i was female. a wonderful sentence, read out of context.

C'est La Craic said...

Yes Rosie, it sucks. It sucks big hair plumber (another typo) ass, so it does.
Conan - speaking of Cac, that's the name of the french share index, the CAC 40. Can't life be so beutifuly ironic sometimes, the fucker.

Conan Drumm said...

I wish...

Conan Drumm said...

Craicser, I thought that was the DAX, or the Bourse.

C'est La Craic said...

Well the CAC 40 is the name of the index of the top 40 companies floated on the Bourse. The Bourse is just the french word for stock exchange.
The DAX is the German equivelent.
And they are all in the same shite state.

tina said...

Oh no, I hope The Blonde is ok and that you get to keep your job.

Govstooge said...

Go n'eiridh an t'ádh leat, Rosie. Hope it all works out for you tomorrow. Hope the wee doggie will be Ok too.

Rosie said...

lá na cinniúna... i'll hopefully know about my contract by the end of the day.

Sarah Gostrangely said...

Hope the job thingy was ok Rosie, though I'm sure you'd be fine either way.

I hear there's a niche in the market for Irish speaking jelly makers.

Re: Dogette, fingers crossed over here. At least you're there to hold her paw and scratch her arse.

Jayne said...

I've just got back from holiday. With a rotten cold. And my lovely sis has just warned me that my mother, brother, his wife and 3 kids are intending to pay me a "surprise" visit on Sunday. Which means I'll have to clean, and convert my room full o' junk back to its proper "2nd bedroom" status.

Fuck.

*goes back to bed*

Rosie said...

copy and paste comment alert:

they did not reach a decision on my contract yesterday, so have postponed it until december 17th. on a scale of one to pissed off and demotivated, i am very.

the vet is to call around 3pm about Alpha. apparently Lila has spent the morning pining for her, crying pitifully in the kitchen and rifling through the contents of my sister's handbag, in case she might be hiding a slobbery golden retriever in there amongst the snotty tissues.

Rosie said...

is there room for me in that bed, Jayne? i could do with a nap. and a cuddle.

Jayne said...

Sadly there's always room in my bed Rosie although you'd have to share with a ton of snotty tissues.

Hope The Blonde is OK.

BTW your employers= fuckwits.

Rosie said...

she's okay, thanks. hope you feel better soon.
