I Want To Fly O'Leary Air

I'm taking a break from answering questions to resume prostituting myself. Frankly it's been a while and profits are low. I need to get back on that street corner and use what my daddy gave me. Don't worry, writing that disturbed me almost as much as it disturbed you reading it.

Anyway, I'm here today to talk about one of my favourite bloggers, specifically Anne. I'm not just saying that because she's doing a giveaway and I have to say such a thing to win, I'm saying it because it's true. She's a lovely woman who always leaves amazing comments that can put a smile on my face. We all know how hard that is. She's very caring, and she was the only person (at least who mentioned it) who once came here because a post of mine didn't appear in her reading list, and she knows I always made a post, and was a bit worried. As well as being kind to me though, she's kind to everyone else. In fact at the time of writing (I wrote this in advance) I just read a great comment she left on another blog (that inspired me to write this post in the first place) that was longer than one of my posts. Which is pretty feckin long. Oh that's another brilliant thing about her, she's Irish and uses the word feck a lot. To be honest there's not much I wouldn't do for an Irish accent. I know that American's love British ones, but for me it's the Irish one.

She said I could make fun of her and her drunken exploits but I seriously can't think of a bad thing to say about her. Other than that when she gets drunk she is prone to making bad decisions. Thankfully none of these involve "accidents" and waking up in someone else's bed. They typically involve other bloggers. In her last challenge (that I can remember) she and Bersercules fought to see what would get the most page views. Half naked men, or half naked women. If I remember rightly the lasses won, which was Bersercules' choice. Well, I remember that Bersercules won. The true winner though, was me. Because I got to stare at hot Irish people.

This time around she has challenged wargamer and near-professional (or actually professional) miniature painter Ray to a painting contest. When she herself is very amateur. But I think she's good. She paints occasionally between running O'Leary Air, her imaginary airline, and taking care of her hubby. I'm not sure how much money you can make running an imaginary airline but she always has gin to hand. As far as I understand the rules the two of them are going to paint something and the winner gets to decide what the other person buys The Angry Lurker for his birthday. The giveaway being involved with it is that Anne has decided to paint a very lovely mouse, and the winner of her giveaway gets to keep the mouse. She had her followers choose between a mouse and a naked woman doing a ritual sacrifice. I voted for ritualistic sacrifice but I don't mind the mouse won. It'll be easier to explain a mouse figure than a naked lady.

Then again I have two My Little Pony's sat next to my Xbox.

Frankly I think I've said more than enough and I'll be surprised if anyone read all this crap. It's probably the longest post I've ever made. Feel free to "get your own back" any time you want Anne. Or challenge me some time. I suck at everything, so you're bound to win. Plus you have more people reading.
The ponies. So that people who didn't read it all have something to comment on and call me a faggot for

  1. Dude, why you have picture of pink ponies? You so gay bro!
    Just kidding, I didn't read the post so I thought I'd take you up on that offer.

    Just dropped by to tell you I gave you an award.

    1. I don't have the pink one yet. The yellow one has pink hair, and she's adorable. And I'm ever so gay. Thanks for the award too.

    4. It would need context, otherwise it wouldn't be as good.

  3. I would have enjoyed the ritualistic sacrifice myself. Mice are cute, but sacrifices make people think. And having that on your wall would be quite the conversation starter!

    1. Yeah but sadly it wouldn't have matched the ponies.

  4. I read all of the post :D
    She sounds like a sweet lady, and I also share your love for the irish accent. in my head, I think I can do it. In reality, I sound like a scouser whose been punched in the mouth. Father Ted episodes further encourage my delusion :)

    1. In my head I pull a perfect Irish accent. I don't think I've ever really attempted one out loud. It always sounds Scottish. I'm watching My Hero and it's got Ardal O'Hanlon in it (Father Dougal) and so yeah, I hear Irish accents everywhere now. I don't mind at all.

  5. Anne is terrific, she's been through an awful lot lately and still finds time to blog and paint and garden. Very nice of you to give her a shout-out, giveaway or not.

    1. Even better if I get a prize, but I can live without. She is going through a lot, so I'd like to give her something to smile about.

  6. Damn!! Why didn't I think of doing a post like this to win the giveaway? That was brilliant, Mark!!

    You're absolutely right about Anne! She is one amazing blogger and she's one of my favorites too. She always has a kind word for all of us and a way of lifting our spirits whether it's on her blog or in our comments. She really does care about all of us. This is a great tribute to her, Mark. Well done!

    1. Because I'm awesomely fantastic and really nothing can compare to me. Well, really it's just that I went above and beyond, and had to force myself to stop talking.

      Thank you Elsie, I'm glad you liked it. I hate to imagine what would happen to me if you didn't.

    2. You are awesomely fantastic, Mark! Not to mention how badly you want to win that giveaway!

      Yeah, if I wasn't happy, the NYer in me would come out ha ha ha!!

  7. I love Anne, over the last 10 months or so she's been like an older, blogger sister to me and even though we have disagreements and things over certain problems she is very kind like you say and she's been going through quite a lot too which in typical Irish fashion she's remained strong to.

    Anne a staunch, faithful Catholic from the South and myself a non-religious guy from the North with a highly Protestant background shouldn't get along but we do.

    1. Well it was a comment on your blog that I was specifically mentioning here :) She's great and she really does need someone to just say to her "Hey Anne, you're freaking awesome."

  8. Thank you Mark!! My imaginary airline has made me an enormous amount of imaginary money, which I spend buying food for my pet troll Guido.

    Oh I can smell a challenge coming your way in the future. I still haven't competed for the Double Triple Penultimate Master Of The Universe but it'll happen. Now what did I do with my gin (question mark)

    1. Guido sounds like an odd name for a troll. Oh well. I'm glad you liked it Anne :) I'm sure if you get drunk enough you'll think of an idea. If I had a lot of imaginary money I'd probably buy a dragon.

  9. You got the Fluttershy one... when again?

    1. I've had Fluttershy a while now. I bought her myself a week or two after my birthday. I contemplated getting the collection but I don't have that much disposable income :(

  10. Anne has been a great friend for you. I notice she is always very supportive in her comments.

  11. What a nice post and yes, I do believe lots of people "read your crap," because it is worth reading. You are a great guy and deserve all of the little ponies you can get your hands on.

  12. I have to say that (no offense to you, of course) that I prefer Irish accents to British ones. They're so lyrical and... I don't know... mystical? I'm struggling to find the proper word.

    Anyway, I think any accent besides the backwoods Texas one that I'm used to hearing is wonderful.

    I love all the friendships that are formed due to blogging! Anne is indeed very wonderful :)

  13. ... Why does your Fluttershy look cuter than mine? lol

  14. I hope your 360 overheats and melts those ponies :P

  15. I read the whole post... and its not even close to your longest post.

    Oh and actually Anne won that compitition. The men (pics) beat the woman (pics). (sad face)

    ANNE RULES!! SHES THE BEST BLOGGER EVER!!!

    My Little Pony? Lame! having them next to your xbox is almost as lame as writing a review of the show!- er um, wait a minute...

  16. I have never read Anne's blog, but I do remember the bet...was it a bet...between Bersercules and her. Why on earth would women want to see a naked man who is not their romantic partner? It just seems weird to me. I thought that Bersercules would win. I am heterosexual, but would much prefer to see a naked woman than a naked man.
