I have been tagged by Julie Midas, so here goes:

A strong, independent woman who doesn't do girly but can be as soft as butter with the right handling!
I'm also, congenitally untidy in my house, office etc. but never my mind!
Constantly amazed by the resilience of the human spirit.
Grateful for my family and friends.

To stop faffing around, get my arse in gear and tidy my bedroom and organise my new mortgage and car!
To travel more, there are so many places to see and things to do.

That my loved ones didn't have to go through the heartache that some of them have had in the past.
That I were disciplined enough to be fitter, thinner and more organised.

People who treat me like an idiot or half-wit, questioning my intelligence outrages me and makes me get very uppity with them.
Housework especially ironing and hoovering.

My sister who lives way too far away for me to able to pop in for a cuppa.
Some of my friends who also live quite far away.

Losing my independence, should my arthritis ever get worse.
How I would cope if I ever did have children.

The distant sound of the traffic outside my office window and a blue-bottle fly buzzing around the window. (He won't be there very much longer!)

If I'll ever meet my soulmate and have a family.
What people really think of me!

Any hurt I've ever caused my loved ones, especially my mother.

The World's best housekeeper, a good singer, skinny, blonde, or dumb.

Too little these days but quite well for a lardy arse when I get going!

Lots especially in my car but not terribly well albeit better than my housemate!

Rarely but usually by myself.

As tolerant with people as I could be or as energetic as I should be.

Bugger all really but when I try I'm quite a good cook.

Quite good reports and summaries for work.
Only using full words and sentences where possible in email and texts- I'm generally not a big fan of text abbreviations.

Other people sometimes, I'm not sure if they always get me.

A hug and a back massage.
I also need to get fit.

Become the best person I can possibly be.
Be tidier and more organised.
Remember and be grateful for the wonderful things in my life more often.

What I finish.
To let my mind wander in work sometimes.
To dream about what can be quite a lot.

Those things which interest and challenge me most, the quickest.
My sister's sentences sometimes.

I tag Doris, Conor, Omani, JL and Paige should they wish to take part, no pressure.

Dave with no ears

Dave, sadly was born without ears. This concerned him greatly but because he was a very successful businessman he could forget about it quite easily. One day he needed to hire a new manager for his company. He set up three interviews. The first guy was great. He knew everything he needed to know and was very interesting. But at the end of the interview, Dave asked him, "Do you notice anything different about me?" "Why, yes, I couldn't help but notice that you have no ears," came the reply. Dave did not appreciate his candour and threw him out of the office.

The second interview was with a woman, and she was even better than the first guy. But he asked her the same question: "Do you notice anything different about me?" "Well," she said stammering, "you have no ears." Dave again got upset and chucked her out in a rage.

The third and final interviewee was the best of the bunch, he was a young man who had recently earned his BSc(Hons). He was smart. He was handsome and he seemed to be a better businessman than the first two put together. Dave was anxious, but went ahead and asked the young man the same question: "Do you notice anything different about me?" And much to his surprise, the young man answered, "Yes, you wear contact lenses, don't you?" Dave was shocked and realised this was an incredibly observant person. "How in the world did you know that?", he asked. The young man fell off his chair laughing hysterically and replied, "Well, it's pretty hard to wear glasses with no f***ing ears!!

Driving home from a meeting down the country this evening I was listening to the Matt Cooper on Today FM. He had some lady on from the Mothers at Home group responding to some expert they had on the programme yesterday who had advocated teenagers wait till they are ready to have sex and do so in a responsible safe way. Yer wan from the Mothers at Home group came on to say that the only truly safe sex was within the confines of a marriage. Dear God, it's Curly K here, please let me get married very soon - I've waited long enough!


It's really good to see that the incumbent Government cherishes those who work day in and out to provide its services. Bertie has now had a pop at the former Chief Executive and Management team of Aer Lingus, accusing them of trying to steal the company's assets. This follows on from Mary Harney's scurrilous remarks about nurses not so long ago as well as the continuing efforts to force, FAS workers and other public servants to leave their homes and move out of Dublin, through reduced promotion opportunities etc. Perhaps they should re-evaluate their own performances and indeed substantial payrises during their own terms of office before saying anything further. The Government's successes to date with solving the health crisis, lack of proper transport infrastructure, proper educational facilities and adequate services for our most vunerable in society etc. have hardly been outstanding. Rather farcical is a word that comes to mind when one analyses the Government's performance. However, this did not deter nice fat pay rises and ever decreasing work days in the Dail - keep goin lads, the elections are fast approaching!


I also heard on the radio that somewhere in Co. Longford today a man was spotted driving his car slowly whilst wheeling one of those distance measuring wheel thingies - jaysus, that's what I call lazy!

Shopping for Mortgages - help!

So I want/need to switch mortgage lenders for a number of reasons, trouble is I'd rather chew my arm off than shop around for mortgage deals! Working out the various interest rates, charges for switching/administration, terms of mortgages etc. must surely be one of the most tortuous processes ever invented!

If you have any tips on how to ease that process please, please, please let me know. Know of any good websites that compare / contrast / work the whole thing out for you - again please let me know. It's not that I'm thick or won't eventually work out the best value / deal for me, it's just that the whole interest rate thing bores me senseless so all suggestions gratefully received.

Found my mojo cont'd. - Mr. Right Now!

For those of you who read my previous post Found my mojo! I've decided to give ye all a quick update on what's been happening since. Contestant number three, currently re-named Mr. Right Now has kept in touch and we've been out for dinner and / or drinks each weekend since!

Don't misconstrue the name Mr. Right Now - I am not using him or simply making do till something better comes along. It's simply that right now is all I can think about. I just want to see what happens - I'm taking my own advice and taking it easy, not rushing into anything and not reading too much into the situation.

He's lovely, kind, considerate, easy-going, good company and not jealous (can't stand jealous men - as I usually say, no-one's tried to run away with me so far, I'm hardly going to become an irresistable sex siren just 'cos I happen be dating!). However, I did have to have the chat about me wanting to take things easy. I just felt he is getting more involved than I am and whilst I don't want to run scared neither do I want to hurt someone so genuine and kind. It's a delicate balance and hopefully I'm managing to keep things on an even keel at the minute.

Whilst we get on very well, the lack of things in common does concern me a little. Also, he's really quiet - which makes it quite strange that he's taken with me seeing as I could never be described as quiet - unless someone gagged me (I'm not suggesting that by the way!). That said I do enjoy his company plus I can be sure he wants to be out with me as he can't blame beer goggles etc. seeing as he doesn't really drink.

One of the things I've noticed is that my mojo is apparently still good. Whilst out on Saturday night a guy who I had a brief thing with years ago and have stayed relatively friendly with, took it upon himself to inform Mr. Right Now that I was a fantastic woman, one of the best (he did however add the proviso, "if you can tame her!" - not sure where that came from, I've never been exactly wild, although I suppose I can be headstrong!). Also, I've just been chatted up so much more than I have ever been in my life in the last few weeks and that started before Mr. Right Now. Maybe it's the fact that I am in my thirties and don't actually worry as much about what people think (of course I still do, but like in my twenties!). Perhaps you just grow into your own skin a little more.

Anyway, will keep you informed but at the moment my biggest problem is that I'm absolutely knackered - I haven't had so many nights out in a long time!

He still wants to give me money!

Dear Professor Soludo,

What a blessing to hear from you again. Are you sure that it right that we continue when the amount was mistakenly approved in my name. I know you say we must keep it confidential but if Father McDoogood was to hear of me taking money that wasn't rightfully mine he could be very upset. I would not like to do something wrong, sure there's no point in going to church every week if you are going to knowingly sin. I will pray for guidance on this matter.

You asked me for details which I list below for you information:

1) Your full names and contact address

My full name is Concepta Attracta Majella Knots

2) Your direct tel/fax numbers for easy communication.

My telephone number is 00 353 (premium phoneline number was inserted here!) but I don't have a fax number.

3) Any identification of your goodself or copy of your international passport for recognition.

Unfortunately, Professor, I don't drive as Ballygobackwards is quite a small town and everything is nearby. Also, seeing as I have never left Ireland I don't have a passport.

4)Your Bank Account information where this fund will be transfered to.

My bank is Bank of Munster, Side Street, Ballygobackwards, Co. Waterford, Ireland. The manager there is Mr. Lotaloot and he's a very kind man.

Professor, I do hope that I am doing the right thing, you are a good Christian, aren't you?

Best wishes from Ireland

20% of US$35,214,000 is how much????

Actually its $7,042,800, bless their hearts! As you can see below I got another email from a kind Zimbabwean soul living in South Africa this time. Sure, the sweet man wants to give me 20% of over $35 million, how could I not write to him! I will let you know as soon as I get a reply to either the email below or the one sent on Tuesday.

Dear Kuta,

Many thanks for your email. I was indeed surprised to hear that someone in Zimbabwe had managed to get my address from the South African Chamber of Commerce in Johannesburg as I don’t understand how important people in such a faraway place came to hear about me, here in Ballygobackwards. Also, Kuto, it seems amazing that such important people even knew my nickname Curly K. Sure I thought only my good business associates knew that, nevertheless, as you know the Lord works in mysterious ways. I just wanted to let you know that my real name is Concepta Knots in case you need it for any paperwork.

Kuto, I am so sorry to hear about your troubles, it must be especially hard for you coming from a good God fearing background. Also it must be hard to know that there is US$ in a bank that you cannot touch whilst you are forced to be a refugee. It’s a sin. Kuto, I cannot believe would be so generous to give away 20% of this amount, it’s a lot of money but you are obviously a very kind man.

Kuto, I would love to help you and look forward to hearing from you soon.

Best wishes from Ireland

MR Kuta Khumalo

Dear Curly K,


My name is Kuta Khumalo the eldeset son of Mr.Joseph Khumalo of Zimbabwe. This might come to you as a surprise about where I got your contact address. I got your address from the South African Chamber of Commerce in Johannesburg, South Africa.

During the current war against the farmers in Zimbabwe from the supporters of our President Robert Mugabe to claim all the white-owned farms to his party members and his followers, he ordered all white farmers to surrender all their farms to his party members and his followers.

My father was one of the best farmers in our country and because he did not support Mugabe's ideas, Mugabe's supporters invaded my father's farm and burnt everything in the farm, killing my father and made away with a lot of items in my father's farm. Before his death, my father had deposited with one of the Security Company in Johannesburg, South Africa the sum of (US$ (Thirty Five Million, Two hundred and Fourteen Thousand.United States Dollars).with my name and made every documents with my name both the certificate of depository. Then after the death of my father, we decided to move to the Republic of South Africa where he had deposited the money in the Security Company as family valuables.

So, I decided to contact you to assist me to transfer this money out of South Africa because as asylum seekers we are not allowed to operate any bank account within South Africa. We have agreed to offer you 20% of the total sum for your assistance, 5% will be mapped out for any expenses that may be incurred in the course of this transaction and 75% will be for me and my family to invest in your country. All I want you to do is to furnish me with your full personal phone and fax numbers for easy communication.

You can contact me on the above Telephone number. Note that this transaction is 100% risk free and absolutely confidential.

Thanks and God bless as I await your reply.
Best Regards,
(For the Family)

Yes, I'll help you give me $15 million

I decided to reply to one of those emails telling me they were giving me lotsamoney! Here's what I sent the esteemed Professor, I await his reply.

Dear Professor Soludo,

Many thanks for your email - I am delighted to hear that you will pay me over 15 million US dollars. Its a pity that the sum was not in Euros as it would be worth more but nevertheless I will accept the dollars sum and try to make to do.

Professor Soludo, I do feel it is my obligation to make you aware that I actually didn't send any email about an outstanding payment owing to me and as a clean living Catholic I could not take what did not belong to me, if you have mistaken me for someone else. Of course, if you need my assistance and would like to pay me for my troubles, well that's a different matter.

Your email brought such good news on so many fronts, not only will I receive a large sum of money for doing my Christian duty and helping someone in trouble but I also see that I will get to meet you and your lovely family eventually when you come to visit Ireland. All this is such good news as we don't get many visitors here in Ballygobackwards. It's a very small rural town you see and the Celtic Tiger never really took hold, more like the Celtic Pussycat, if you get my my drift. That may cause a slight problem in looking for the good business opportunities you discussed in your email but I'll talk to Paddy in the Post Office; he's the man who knows all that goes on in these parts so he might know if anyone has a quota for sale or if there are any good farms on the market (Mr. & Mrs. Doolally are supposed to be retiring soon, so I'll see if their quota is for sale)

Anyway, Professor Soludo, back to business (sorry I digress so much, but I'm that excited you see). As soon as you send me details of how I can help you I will get onto the matter straight away as I have quite a lot of free time these days since I sold my own quota two years ago, making enough profit to ease life for me.

Kind regards,

Curly K

PS Professor Soludo, my real name is Concepta Knots, my friends call me Curly K, will that present a problem with the paperwork which you have already drawn up?

Towards the end of the golf course, Richard hits his ball into the woods and finds it in a patch of pretty yellow buttercups. Trying to get his ball back in play, he ends up thrashing just about every buttercup in the patch. All of a sudden, in a flash and puff of smoke, a little old woman appears.

She says, "I'm Mother Nature. Do you know how long it took me to make those buttercups? Just for doing what you have done, you won't have any butter for your popcorn for the rest of your life. Better still, you won't have any butter for your toast for the rest of your life. As a matter of fact, you'll never have any butter for anything the rest of your life!"

Then POOF!.....she's gone!

After Richard recovers from the shock, he hollers, "Allan, where are you?"

Allan yells back "I'm over here in the pussywillows."

Richard shouts back, "Don't swing, Allan! For the love of God, don't swing!"

Undiscovered treasure in Scotland!

After realising the predicament I had been placed in by my post about Nessie, good old CatGirlSpeaks has dug me out of a hole and forwarded this as yet undiscovered treasure from Scotland, to hopefully convey fully the power of the art of positive thinking.

Ladies, Peter Dow is definitely a catch! You have got to log on to his webpage - to set the mood "I wanna know what love is" by 10cc plays softly in the background whilst one peruses the finer details about this unique specimen of manhood. Here are just a few of the many reasons, that Peter is an unfound treasure:

"I'd like to find a lady to love and to start a family with" writes Peter ............

"I live off welfare and have done for years - it is a reliable, though low, income which increases to a couple's allowance if I can find a partner who is 'habitually resident in the UK' - lived for years in Scotland, England, Wales or Northern Ireland.".........

"I am not adverse to introducing a bit of polygamy (polygyny) into my life, so if, say, sisters, women friends or bisexual women partners wanted to share me and for us all to live together as one happy family, then I'd be all for that.".............

"Trying for children: I'd like to try for my first baby right away. So I'd advise my woman to be as sure as she can be that I'm right for her before she moves in. When my lady moves in, I'll be expecting to have sex with her with no contraception. At my age, I have no time to waste before getting my family started."

Unbelievably, Peter's fellow Scotswoman, CatGirlSpeaks has not yet jumped at the chance to take Peter up on his offer (she's obviously way too fussy - one of those women who is very hard to please!) so he's available to any of you single ladies out there. I know there are at ten single ladies (bloggers & non-bloggers, you know who you are!) who log onto to this site regularly so ladies, don't say I never do anything for you!

Obese, Ugly Single Man Not Seeking Same - Part II

Well folks, it seems my last post Obese, Ugly Single Man Not Seeking Same has opened a can of worms! This is very complicated. I received an email from Nessie, which I have pasted below for you. According to Nessie, the original post I linked to was posted by a guy called SmashtheLeft, who has been blacklisting Nessie for quite sometime as Nessie, in his role as moderator on the San Francisco Indymedia website, has moderated and banned SmashtheLeft's racist, anti-semitic comments.

Apparently I've managed to put myself right in the line of fire between the Right and Left. However, apologies to Nessie for my inadvertant perptuance of SmashtheLeft's campaign. Whilst I don't hold with Nessie's conspiracy theory view it doesn't offend me but I most certainly do not hold with any anti-semitic or indeed any other racist or hate views.

So, folks, Curly K, has managed to land right in the excrement whilst trying to have a lighthearted stab at the power of positive thinking!

"Please be aware that the Indymedia thread entitled "Obese, Ugly Single Man Not Seeking Same" was not actually written or posted by me. It's a forgery, one of literally thousands that are part of a political smear campaign against me that is being conducted primarily by a single person, a notorious right wing troll who calls himself "SmashTheLeft."

Google "nessie Indymedia" and you will see the scope of this smear campaign. This guy hates me because, in my capacity as one of the moderators at San Francisco Indymedia (
http://sf.indymedia.org), I banned him from posting. He apparently has some mental issues, and acts out online. He is obsessed with me. I've become his personal white whale. He slanders me and forges my name to lies on Indymedia almost every single day. On occasion, he also threatens my life. He's not the only one, either.
