Rome braces for 'prophet-predicted quake'

Thousands of people are reported to be staying out of Rome for the next few days, over fears the city will be hit by a huge earthquake.

The panic was sparked by rumours that seismologist Raffaele Bendandi, who died in 1979, predicted the city would be devastated by a quake on 11 May.


Spain: Earthquake rocks Lorca, Murcia, killing 10


(also I'm halfway through the last ASOIAF book. I ship Tyrion/Sansa. I am rly sorry about this. I think it's lingering affection from Steerpike/Violet if Violet was less dippy and Steerpike was less evil. And shorter)

I'm back from Ireland! And I want to go home again :( My cousins the osteo-archaeologist and the guy doing a PHD in bone regeneration using stem cells made me watch Bones. And then [personal profile] the_wanlorn made me watch more. ALL I EVER WANTED WAS A SHOW ABOUT MULDER!SCULLY AND SCULLY!MULDER FROM BAD BLOOD. THANK YOU WORLD. Except Zack is my favourite and I have been made aware of why this is a bad idea :(


What I did on my holidays

You guys, small children are hilarious. Especially when you don’t particularly like the person who’s supposed to be looking after them and they’re smart enough to be naughty on command.

My mum had a go on my cousin’s quad bike. She got about five metres and ran straight into his van. His parked van. I cried laughing.

Then I went to Dublin and drank for four days straight. I had the best tickets ever for the match. Seriously, I found the seat, looked up and assumed I was in the wrong place.

I took so many pictures )

My friend got right up close to one of the Cork players and asked if she could take a picture of him. He told her to fuck off. I’m sure no Kerry player would have done that!

Then there was alcohol. Lots of it. Things to know about Dublin:

1) When you get kicked out of a pub in Temple Bar for throwing fruit at someone wearing a Dublin shirt (look, they had oranges in a bowl with a sign saying ‘please take one!’ What did they think was going to happen?) you get kicked out of every pub in Temple Bar, because they all have radios.

2) When you get kicked off a Dublin bus for being drunk, you can just get the next one. At about four or five in the afternoon oh God.

3) You can’t get served while wearing a Kerry shirt. You have to give a friend your money for the round.

Sunday night was crazy, because all the football people were still out. We ended up between a group of Cork boys and a group of Kerry boys. They had a dance off. An actual dance off. I’ve never seen one before.

We got a hold of one of the little Kerry make up packs that give you a stripe of green and gold face paint, and we went up to every red shirt in the club, told them they had something on their face and then swiped them. One of them took a swing at Ash and I had to put him in a head lock to get him off her.

We got two apartments between us, and on Monday night I was out with the girls in the other one. I had to leave the door unlocked for the ones in mine, and as soon as I went to sleep they sneaked in and turned every stick of furniture except the bed I was in upside down.

I slept through the whole thing.

I don't even know what I was at, but I ended up drinking with my MP (yay Old Labour socialists \o/) and the manager of my local football team. And his lovely shiny trophy.

The guy giving the speech was showing off his silver medal and my dad piped up "Didn't get the gold, though, did you?" and I had this moment of 'oh. He does this with everyone. Wish I'd known that twenty years ago.'

I am going to see Arsenal next week. I hate Arsenal. Wear my Spurs cap, y/y/mfy?


Family tree

I should never have agreed to do up a family tree for my mother.
  1. There should be a limit to how many Stephens you can have in a family. That limit should be under twelve. Twelve, ffs!

  2. Honora isn't a real name.

  3. I am worried by the number of my ancestors who married someone with the same surname as themselves.

I'm sitting in my pajamas, watching my favourite teenage comfort movie. I've finished reading one surprisingly good book & started another. I just got linked to this. I have an interview for a cool job that ~*~does things for people~*~ I phoned my boyfriend earlier. I'm working on a novel that I've had in my head for years, but has never fully gotten itself down onto paper before. It'll never see the light of day, but it makes me feel better.
Life is pretty good

The boyriend took me to a works thing last night up in Birmingham (Solihull is really nice! Did we know this?). Okay, sounds boring but there was Ed Byrne! And ood (this kind, not this kind)! And lots and lots o alcohol!

The works thing was a health & saety awards... thing. IDK. I'm pretty much the antithesis o health & saety so I just told everyone the story about the time my dad severed a tendon at work to get out o wearing a suit to a wedding. I ended up sitting next to an Irish guy so we managed to duck out o the toast to the Queen (WTA uck) together.

Also, Iron Man = awesome. or some reason my boyriend hates comics but loves superheroes. I don't get this, but am very happy to watch lots o superhero ilms with him.

Wandered into the kitchen earlier to ind a topless man in my back garden, wielding a chainsaw. Thanks or reminding me you were getting someone to take that tree down, neighbour! Jesus I almost had a ucking heart attack.

Now I'm o to ind some superglue.

I have a new layout and it's made of awesome. I still don't know how it got to ten pages of code.

Also, when your parents finally meet your boyfriend's mother, & they get onto the subject of falling birthrates in Austria (no, I don't know how we got there from 'my holiday in Slovakia) don't blurt out "That's because they keep locking them in the basement :D"

Just don't.

My uncle cut the tip of his finger off. He is such a dumbass, you guys. At least he didn't get kicked in the head by a calf again. That was just embarrassing.


Oh. Ohhhhhhhh.

I just found out it was St George's Day yesterday. I did not, in fact, spend the day surrounded by racists!

That's always good to know.

I love going to see the London Marathon with my dad. He needs me to go because he is terrified of London & will get lost. Now, this may sound like standing in the rain for several hours, watching idiots trying to kill themselves, but I always have fun. cut for length & illegality )


April Fool!

I rickrolled the local radio station earlier. Honestly what were they thinking, having a phone in suggesting song titles?


Typical conversation with my bf.

Him: I was reading in the Metro last week that people on the internet are playing pranks by linking people to this song instead of what they wanted.
Him: You know what song they're using? Never gonna give you up! I love that song :('

Which ended in us rick'rolling each other irl. IDK which of us has the worse voice. Then I somehow ended up explaining anonymous vs Scientology, using the phrase 'no, a different anonymous community' several times.


Lets see if anyone can understand me.

Well I had an interesting day yesterday. It was the anniversary of my uncle's death, then my aunt called to say that my cousin had arranged the date for his wedding, but only one aunt & one uncle are invited. My mum is determined to go just so that her sister can't. My dad is very annoyed because Tommy is his favourite. I don't think anyone's ever going to speak to Tommy again.

The rest of us young ones spent most of the day texting each other & giggling at the grown ups being butthurt. We tend to revert to around five years old around each other. This was why I didn't expect the tearful call from yet another cousin to say that her grandmother had just died & she didn't know what to do, so I had to talk her through it. It didn't involve getting rid of the corpse, in case you were wondering.

I am so glad that I can have tea tomorrow.


Some songs for you for St Patrick's day.

The Wolfe Tones, the Clancy Brothers, Christy Moore.

I also got to see St Patrick scaring small children with plastic snakes, which is an underrated pasttime.

ETA: I have issues with Dublin accents. The kind of issues that involve cringing & sticking my fingers in my ears, but you need to see this. We're totally doing a Father Ted this year.
