D├╝sseldorfer Christmas Market

This poor little cutsie lost his mammy and was sitting on the ground crying. He found her at the end so it was fine.

David Lachapelle Myspace competition

You would be stooopid not to enter it

Ebay ShmEbay

I finally, FINALLY got the courage to attempt to bid on ebay. FINALLY. After everyone told me how great it was and what fantastic bargains they got. So I looked for cameras (oobviously) and found a real cheap D2x. like omg cheap. After many should I or should I not thoughts, I DID IT! I clicked the 'place bid' button. Yay, i was 16 hours closer to my new (totally) ridiculously cheap camera! but of course it all had to end when I received this email from ended@ebay.com

The following is a notice from eBay Trust & Safety regarding:
Item Number - 110070360756

Item Title - Nikon D2X

Our records show that you placed a bid on this item. We removed this item from the Site and cancelled your bid because it appears that the seller's account has been compromised and used by an unauthorized third party. The seller's privileges to trade on eBay may be temporarily suspended while we investigate this matter further. Due to privacy concerns we will not be able to share further details related to this seller.

Does this happen often or am I doomed never to use ebay?

some questions stolen from various Sunday paper magazines

In 2006..

All my money went on
my D2X camera

I really admired
Calaisa who managed to get themselves a record deal with Universal by simply not giving up and working so hard for so many years

The shop I couldn't walk past
Mac in Brown Thomas, since learning so much stuff about makeup application and getting loads of new brushes I just couldn't help myself...

My biggest achievement
I think my exhibition in BT2 and selling some of my work was nice.

My biggest regret
I actually don't think I have any. I achieved way more then expected this year.

My fail safe dinner party dish
lasagne

The one place I wanted to visit
Tel Aviv but that didn't happen. Will have to wait until next year.

My ultimate Sunday was spent
Sleeping in and hanging out with Ian

One phrase I used far too often
Yaysies! and Byesies!

most surprising thing that happened to me
The amount of national press coverage I received this year for various things really surprised me I must say!

ideal night out
going for early bird dinner, then to a gig and then stay for club after

film I loved most
James Bond- Casino Royale. yum.

film I thought was so not cool
My Super Ex Girlfriend

favourite TV programme
America's Next Top Model followed by Big Brother, X Factor and Corrie. omg how could i forget my biggest addiction of the year which is Jack Bauer and 24!

midweek night treat
going to a launch or fashion show

Sunday morning cure
Couch, duvet, junk food and Corrie omnibus

album I listened to on repeat
The Charlatans Simpatico

most memorable photoshoot
The 2 day shoot of Calaisa which I did for Universal. Seeing the album finished was brill.

Funniest photoshoot
at the count of 3, throwing little multicoloured plastic balls at The Bleedin Bleedins while I take the photo, and them trying to keep a straight face. I was actually crying from laughter.

gigs I will always remember
Definitely The Charlatans at The Ambassador and at Oxegen
Maximo Park madness in Limerick

best night out
The Things Halloween gig in The Hub
Fun Lovin Criminals tourbus adventures

Blog I kept checking at least 30 times daily
Blogorrah


Other highlights were Electric Picnic, ice skating with the girlies, going on holiday to Sicily, bingo in The George on Sundays, Series 5 of 24, the lovley sunny days we had in Dublin over the summer, BBQs on the roof (until it got stolen! GRRR!!), Hard Working Class Heroes Weekend, MySpace Festival in TBMC etc etc!

Wanna be on top

If anyone else, like me, is away and will not be around to watch the finale of America's Next Top Model, here are the links to youtube.

OMG OMG OMG!!

WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHH I went to shoot THE CHARLATANS on Thursday night, which was just too amazing as they are possibly my favourite band in the whole wide universe. ever.
I found it real hard to actually take photos as they were playing my fave tunes and I just wanted to put the camera down and dance! (this is my valid excuse for the super-crap pics!!) after the usual 'first 3 no flash" it was back to the crowd to witness the soundtrack of my teens!!! They played 'One to Another' and then followed by 'The only One I know' how amazing!

Here's one of my fave Charlatans songs!
The Charlatans - Weirdo

Beautiful Rebels

I think at least one of my photographs is in an exhibition at The Bodega in Cork (46 Cornmarket Street, Cork) Check it out if you are in the area (and let me know what it looks like as I haven't seen it)

iceskating etc

Went Ice Skating in Smithfield on Saturday with the girls which was so much fun. Fell on my ass while trying to show off that I can twirl (I so can't, what was I thinking) We then all came back to mine for some yumsies mince pies (the M&S onces are just AMAZING) and we also made mulled wine (or gl├╝hwein as I know it) which was mmmmmm (all you need is cheap red wine, cloves, orange, lemon peel, sugar, cinammon, and ginger. easy peasy I must say. Stayed up late with the girls watching the BEST.MOVIE.OF.ALL.TIMES - EuroTrip. Get it on DVD!
Was asked to shoot Tenacious D (photees to follow) on Sunday eve which was good, then had to leg it off to Leixlip for Ian's Dads 60th Birthday dinner.
All good.
Happy Monday everyone
