Folk Britannia

Okay, so I admit it: I've been enjoying the FOLK BRITANNIA documentaries on BBC4. Hell, I'm listening to LIEGE & LIEF right now. I'm not ashamed.

Let me play a guessing game here and say you are in Larne. I haven't searched your blog for exact references. Am I in the right County? or are you a boy from county hell?

try looking for a county where footballers in irish or british styles like to use their fists.

:shock:

Larne!

*SHUDDERS*

See, that's from us talking about drinking in Carrick. Which would be considered a big night out if you were from Larne. Larne being, as it is, the ninth circle of hell, and Carrick just the eighth.

I went by Carrick last year-- the rope bridge was closed. Still confused, and the football clue helps me not, American girl that I am. Are you saying you drink in Carrick, but aren't from there?

Ahh, no you see *I* work and live in Carrick. I was merely inviting Mark up for a weekend's boozing. Carrickfergus is a strange place (the rope bridge is in Carrick-a-rede btw - different spot altogether), looks lovely, seafront, mountains behind, castle, very nice, but the locals are all nutters!
Mark, I'm sure he'd like me to point out, does not, has not and will not ever live in Carrickfergus.
Let alone Larne!

Well, I did live in Greenisland for a year, so that was practically Carrickfergus.

I'll happily discuss my geography with anyone via email, but I have decided upon a golden rule for the blog: I won't mention my first name, surname and location all in the one post. Because a bored co-worker might just google all three someday, and that'd be it: all pretenses of anonymity blown forever.
And then it won't be M**k C****ll, lover of modern literature, anymore. I'll just be M**k C*****ll, that twat who writes about comics and Star Wars.

the football clue helps me not - it's something that i'll have forgotten soon enough myself.

out of interest, why does the gaa team from orchard county play in orange, when it's a colour normally associated with people from the other side of the house and in particular a bunch of vigilantes (at the time) who originated from the left of said-county?

god, i got to stop sniffing this ajax
