that story couldnt have been any longer if my nana told it
I was impressed she could do it, but thought the dress bunched in the wrong places when she was dancing.
That's the way it was when I was in Louisiana. Completely common practice to say "yes sir" or "yes ma'm", always.
One of the upsides to emigration is that we managed to ship Perth Rose and her laugh off to Australia.
Darwin Rose, oh dear.
Wow, this story is making the poems look clever and entertaining.
i'm guessing it has never been done before, that is something
Hilarious prizes for being the escort of the year. Cuff links and cutlery ....
He's genuinely delighted too...hahaha
is that flatware made in ireland?
Whose escort was the winner?
And sorry, can we take a moment to comment on Daithi's perma tan and horrific beard.
This is unbearable guys. it's worse than this #slanegirl debacle.
you mean "johnny" means nothing to you?
The bedtime story was bizarre even by Rose of Tralee standards.
Eys, it's Newbridge. They're also one of the sponsors.
This story makes that doctor's story look interesting and short, but at least she's going to dance.
Even the dancing is starting to get a bit old now.
i bought a box!
is rowdy riley talking about learning gaelic?
oh i guess that answers my question
Time to head home. Hope to be here for the grand finale tomorrow.
i wish newfoundland brought her bestie
Just now? Ah the things that can happen. Now you can change your story to "i was so excited because each year, fred, who i never met and isnt really named fred, puts a thread with a link on an ice skating forum on the internet, and watching it even made me buy a box of Newbridge cutlery".
buying a box of flatware has been on my list of things to do forever so now i can cross it off, the shipping was only $21
so in newfoundland an old cock is your good friend? i think some guy on the down low just made that up when his wife asked where he was
OK I have no idea what the heck that just was but Newfoundland is definitely my favorite so far. She was nice without being annoying, AND original.
No, it is a real expression.
Kerry is very summer garden party.
Freakiest thing ever was landing in St. John's, Newfoundland on way to Halifax and hearing all the Waterford accents.
My DVR recording cut just as Kerry launched into her speech. I've a feeling I didn't miss much.
Isn't it just bizarre? Did you ever see the documentary, Dear Zachary, lot of Newfoundland accents.
I only saw about four girls, but I must say, Newfoundland looked a bit like Blake Lively. Very cute and not at all annoying....accordingly, she'll place last.
BTW, all you non Irish ladies who sat through this event are rock stars. If ever you find yourselves in Dublin, I promise to buy you drinks and make up for the torture you're ( choosing ) to endure.
When I was in St. John's last summer I went to The Rooms (the provincial museum/archives, very awesome). There was a display about all the connections between Newfoundland and Ireland, and IIRC it said that about half of Newfoundlanders can trace their ancestry within a few generations directly to Ireland. There was also a photo display of portraits of people with the same surname in Newfoundland and in Ireland - not related, just with the same surname - and the resemblances were astounding.
She could place second and we'd never know. They only announce the winner.
For those of you who missed the proposal (you lucky people), here it is again.
No "Yes, sir" from her that time it has to be noted.
Second night has just started and London is up first!
she looks like someone's gran, bless
Can tune in for about an hour but then have to head home. May be able to catch the end.
So basically it was just a bit of Irish dancing in the dark.
Except for the part where she pulled the cloak up too high and we say her glow in the dark rear.
Wicklow Rose up now. Wicklow is known as the Garden of Ireland, but it's nothing like New Jersey.
Whatever happened to Ray Darcy?
