"Seven bums and fourteen legs,
a brazen ecstasy which begs
the question some of us are asking -
is Peter Goulding multi-tasking?"

Persona non gratis in Sligo

Spent all day yesterday trying to install the new phone we got from UPC. They neglected in the book to tell you two important details - there's a switch you need to push to the left; you need to phone the helpdesk to install your new modem. Grrrrr.
Anyway, I've only just got around to seeing the results of the Hawkswell iYeats Poetry competiton 2011 and guess what? Yup, yet another blank. When they come thick and fast like this, it can get a bit discouraging.
Congratulations to Jessamine O'Connor, not only for winning, but also for her name, which is truly wonderful. I see Noel King, yet again, in the list of the Nearlies and Kerrie O'Brien is featuring in Poetry Bus 2. I'm assuming that the Colm Farrell listed is probably sick of the jokes, so I won't mention him.
