They’re Talking About Trump In Dublin Too


So, I had to go to the hairdressers in Dublin today. I was sitting there reading my Kindle, when all of a sudden the very young hairdresser beside me and her elderly customer started talking about Trump. Well of course my ears pricked up and I unashamedly listened to their conversation.

The discussion went along these lines…

OMG. What are they thinking? He wants to build a wall around Mexico and make them pay for it. He’s winning everything. What on earth will he say next? He couldn’t win – could he? Β They won’t vote for him for President – will they?

I was tempted to join in but thought it would be a bit rude.

He is not a good ambassador for the US of A.

    Well we have a problem in Houston/Dublin. Our central heating has died. We are heading into the coldest weekend of the year and WE HAVE NO HOT WATER. No fecking heat – well we can light a fire here and there but it is frigid if you go outside of those rooms.

    At least I got my hair washed today.

    We are currently boiling vats of water for showers tomorrow…

    I have a horrible feeling that this could go on for a few weeks. I’m sure the guy that is coming tomorrow will tell us we need a new boiler. Last one was only 8 yrs ago.

    One of these days, I might change my blog name….

    It will be something along the lines of “austinisstlllafecker.” I am so cold now and am turning blue…

    Sorry to hear about your heat, IG.

    As for tRump, he won’t be elected, although it looks like he has a good chance of being nominated. People have got to realize that it’s only the base of the gop that loves him, or rather his persona. And the media plays him up, so it seems that he’s popular, but he isn’t. So it isn’t just tRump who isn’t a good ambassador for America, but the media as well.

    If you never hear me blog again, you know what happened….

    I died from the cold…

  8. So sorry that you’re quickly becoming a popsicle. That’s not good. We have an old home and an oil furnace with no other source of heat. When the power goes, we get cold, also and too. It’s no fun to be bundled up wearing everything one owns. It’s times like those that I think of my immigrant great grandparents that lived in North Dakota/Minnesota/Wisconsin and had to deal with serious cold. I’m a wimp, there’s no question. I hope there’s an easy fix for your problem. Until then, snuggle up with someone you love.

    My gas man is on his way. I’m prepared for very bad news. Sigh.

  10. irishgirl999 says:

    Thanks. Well, he came and couldn’t diagnose the problem. He said it could be a couple of things but you need spare parts to see where exactly to pin the fault. So tomorrow, the guy with the spare parts is going to call. I was kind of amazed that they would have someone come on a Saturday! He also told me to NOT try to put it on again – carbon monoxide is spewing out of it. The CO is going outside but by gawd I am not going anywhere near it now.

    The Irishkids are now learning an old-fashioned lesson. How to keep yourself clean without a shower gushing with hot water…

  11. Yikes – – Glad you’re still typing legibly and your thought process is on the same level as usual. You have a host of readers that will call the authorities if you seem to be nodding off over the keyboard. Opening the windows when it’s cold seems counterproductive, but . . . . . Take care.

    I’m breathing – barely. Thanks for that!
