im back

Hi there again! I became quite dire at blogging when I came home from Texas in August. I think not being stuck in an office for 10 hours in a day played a role in this (VoxTech, I miss you!). How and ever, I’m home in Ireland, home in DUBLIN to be exact and am back to studying journalism. Final Year. ICK.

So, with my life sorted, lectures   for the time being and a new job in Debenhams, I’m going to give the old blogging another shot. Hopefully, we’ll get to a new total of posts that actually hits twenty this time! HUZZAH!

I hope to be writing about things that I like, such as music, fashion, movies, my life (if anything exciting happens) and general musings.

Hope you enjoy.

Trudi 🙂

I stumbled across this amazing collection of photographs online while browsing the net at work. As you do. There is no photographer credited on the side as far as I can see, all I could find was the name “Danny”. They are funny and different, if a bit weird! The full collection is available here . These are a few of my favourites:

Yesterday, we had a run in with the police. Second one in a month, impressive, no?

funny-picture-1283240643At 6.15pm, upon leaving the office in Richardson in which we work, we realised we were the last two people left in the building and that we had set off the alarm coming out the front door. We tried ringing our employer and there was no answer. Lo and behold, what comes speeding up the road only a Richardson Police Force squad car. Great. The copper was actually nice, but intimidating in an extreme way. He asked to see some I.D. Greg had none on him, David (who had come to give us a lift home) had none and I had my Irish drivers license. Which could not be further from a US drivers license in appearance. Continue reading

Or how about dinner and a movie at the same time???

Oh yes, ladies and gentlemen, you read correctly. For last night, I experienced something new and wonderful. Along with 3 others, I went to a magical place called the Studio Movie Grill, aptly named so because you eat while you watch your movie. Continue reading



OK So, Queso?

queso

Queso. What is that, I hear you ask. Only THE most delicious starter/appetizer/any time of the day snack that one could think of. It is basically a bowl of melted cheese that is spiced and seasoned and served with nacho chips (or just chips as they call them here in Dallas. Weirdos.) It is soooooo good and I will be devastated when I get back to Ireland and can’t buy it. Cue sad face. 😦

ranchdressingRanch dressing is something I also have expereinced here that is HUGELY popular and oh so yum. It’s like liquidy garlicy mayonaissey goodness and it goes with everything from salads to … well, anything!

Queso and ranch. Not together of course. Two things too good to leave behind. So I will be almost definitely smuggling some home. OH YESH lads. Ireland here we come.

Could this be a dance to rival the Macarena? The Cha Cha slide? Possibly even Rock the Boat?? I sure hope so!

Now, I love Lady Gaga. I like her style, I like the fact she is different, I like the way she is changing the ‘perfect’ image of a female popstar away from being a size 0 barbie doll and I like the fact she is a musician, who can actually play an instrument.

And I love her style. I mean, check out the button below. Who else could even THINK of doing than. You go Gaga! 🙂
