Meme: That Sh*t is the Tits!

Vulgarity ahoy (you have been warned) as I respond to this meme which I got tagged for by Sara from Suburban Oblivion (and then proceeded to swipe her post title as well).

I normally avoid as many memes as possible, however having gotten tagged twice in one post, I guess I’m obligated to respond or I’ve got a feeling that I’ll get punched in the nose and have my kilt slagged off again.

For those of you unfamiliar with “Slagged”:

Past tense of slagging, To take the piss out of somebody or thing. Of Irish origin.

Example: John slagged Bob about his crappy car

Anyhow, I’m sorry for not having any tits to show you for this post, not even a descent set of man boobs, but I have put together a list of things that I think are the virtual tits, or as we say over here, the dogs bollocks.

  • The fact that Sprint allows me to email an SMS to their customers for free. Where’s my version Meteor?
  • Urban Dictionary: Your ultimate source for profanity and without which you would all remain in the dark about the Irish and English slang I use.
  • My new headset which I picked up for use with Skype. Yes, the one Sara now owns as well and tagged me for!
  • The hat which Mr. Business Golf sent me (why don’t I have a picture of that here?).
  • My little friend who, like his kin, can hang above your window and protect you from bad dreams and zombies (both the dead and living kind)!
  • Skype Subscriptions, without which I would have the worlds largest phone bill for international calls.
  • Twitter – without which I would be without my daily dose of news and blogging inspiration. (Not following me on Twitter? Add me!!)
  • The internet – where oh where would I be without you??
  • Stephen Lynch – This guy just cracks me up!

  • Billy Connoly – The best thing to ever come out of Scotland! (Warning video> contains strong language!)

  • Gmail – I couldn’t live without it when I’m on the move. It acts a single repository for all 27 (don’t say it) of my email accounts!
  • My friends who have stuck by me through thick and thin, even when I’ve been a royal pain in the backside! Thanks guys!!
  • When fat, arrogant bastards get what’s coming to them. Don’t laugh it happens – always! Life’s a bitch that way!
  • Red Dwarf – how I wish I could find a channel that does re-runs!!
  • Oxygen – Well technically O2 or dioxygen, without you I would be dead!
  • Sliced Bread – because I can be lazy at times.
  • Guinness – How I’ll miss you when I move!

  • My readers and subscribers (are you one yet? why not?)- you guys rock!

Finally, I suppose what is really the tits, is the fact that even though I could go on almost indefinitely listing things that are seriously cool, I can stop and end this post here, just because I feel like it!!

Vidcast: Pigeon Holes, Mommy Bloggers, Subscribers vs Readers

Yesterday Scot Duke invited me to be co-host on a very impromptu Mr.Business Golf Show and we talked about a couple of posts of mine.

The first topic of the show (and the last as well) was my reaction to a post by Erin Kotecki (The Queen of Spain). called "So you want to talk to mommy bloggers".

I had, literally 5 minutes previous to coming on the show, just posted a reply to Erin’s post called "Pigeon hole yourself and reap the consequences", which yesterday garnered some quite emotional comments so I’m hoping that this video doesn’t get me strung up from the rafters.

The second topic we discuss is about Subscribers vs Readers, which came out of a guest post that I did for Fuelmyblog called "1000 Subscribers or 100 readers?".

In the show we talk about subscribers and readers from both the bloggers point of view and the marketing point of view as well as discuss when is a good time to display your reader count (if at all).

The post on Fuelmyblog came was written as a response to Corvida from SheGeeks question:

"For those that have their RSS subscriber stats on their blog, when did decide to put yours up? At what number do you think it’s beneficial for others to do the same?"

Anyway, I hope you enjoy the show. In hindsight I think it would have been great if this recording from yesterday could have went out with the post that I wrote in response to Erin, but what can you do?

I hope you enjoy the show.

Finally one place to see all the O’Flaherty vidcasts

I’ve finally taken the time to build a way for you to see all the vidcasts I do in one location.  From now on the only URL you have to remember to get your daily dose of O’Flaherty is

It doesn’t matter if I’m on Fuelmyblog Live, The Mr. Business Golf Show, or anything else, you’ll be able to see them all live at this one URL and be able to join in to the chat rooms with just a single click.

I’m glad I got it built in time for tonight’s Fuelmyblog live because tonight is rant night for myself and Kevin.

The show kicks off at 10PM CET.

Oh, before I go I’ve got to say "Thank ya kindly" to Sugar Queen’s Dream for showing us a little love with some kind words about out last show.

Although Sugar: "resident hunks"?

What were you smoking.. LOL
