Toys for Girls and Boys. And a TV Star in a Sweater.

Long time, no posting. I know. But i’ve been busy.

I just managed to slip away from rehearsals for tonight to type up a short post for the blog.

It’s been a dodgy week, since that one told me to basically shove my prize tickets up my arse.

Ungrateful cow.

Just so you all know, i ripped up her cheque too and sent that on to her. Let’s see how much she like that.

Tonights going to be a big night. We have lots of kids from schools in Dublin coming on to sing songs and dance and things. And maybe we’ll have a toy or two. I’ll finally make those people realise I’m better than Gay Bryne ever was.

I’m psyched for this show. It can’t go worse than last year with Jerry Seinfield.

Or can it?

Tune in to find out!

Apologies To The Tent I Peed On…

I am wrecked. Oxegen was a blast. So tired after it though.

I got to see so many amazing bands over the weekend. Especially front row for Rage Against The Machine. It was so much fun moshing away in the pit area there. Where else will you get a chance to smack some spotty teenagers in the face and get away with it? I mean, I’ve done it before, but still it’s more fun when I don’t have to pay people off afterwards.

There was so much more craic to have been had over in the campsites however. Thanks to paying off the security, I was able to drive the campervan right into the site. The people whose tent I crushed weren’t too pleased. Especially since they happened to have been in it at the time. Oops.

We also got into a bit of further trouble later on the Thursday evening. The wife had brought a 12 pack of cigarettes with her, but had forgotten to get a lighter. I ended up creating a makeshift blowtorch for her using the cooker and a can of deodorant. Unfortunately, it was too strong. Still, her eyebrows will eventually grow back, right?

My only complaint about the whole weekend was the weather. Sunday was a lovely warm day, but the Friday was so wet, that I had to stay stuck in the tents. Means I missed that Kings of Lion band. I really wanted to go and sing “Hakuna Matata”.

Instead I got that Cowboy singer guy Mundy, with his singing about girls from Galway. They’re not even remotely attractive!

Ah, well, I can always see them next year. Roll on Oxegen 2009!

Here Comes The Summer!

Apologies for the delay since the last post. It’s just that I was so geared up about finishing the Late Late show for the summer that I wasn’t able to think straight for the week coming up to the finale. The show organizers didn’t make it easy for me. How is any man supposed to talk to Amanda Brunker, without closing their ears and staring at her chest? It’s damn near impossible!

So then the second I finished, I headed on the next plane out of the country to go on my holidays. Thailand is great, by the way. You can get away we nearly anything out there. It was only for that incident involving myself and the national football team streaking through the streets that led to my deportation.

So yes, I’m free for the summer now. But I don’t really know what to do with myself. I mean, there’s the radio show to be done, but no-one really cares about that. Plus I pre-record the show 4 or 5 months in advance. And nobody’s the wiser about it. Except for the time I discussed the results of the May General Election and what it meant for Ireland. In October.

I put in a pitch to the Director General of RTE for a new reality show to show while I’m off the TV. I think he’s going to go for it. I’ll be filming next month, and then it should hopefully go to air in the early autumn. The plan is for myself, the wife and our kids to head across the country in a camper van. We’re also arranging that each week there’ll be a special celebrity housemate with us. It’ll be tremendous fun.

We still have to come up with a title for it though. They told me I can’t have a show called “Pat Kenny’s Land”.

This Land Is Your Land…

…This land is my land…La La La La La, It’s full of old sand….

I forget how the rest of that song goes. It probably doesn’t mention court settlements anyway.

So, yes. For those that didn’t see the news, I settled the whole court dispute that I had with my neighbour, Gerry Charlton, over that area of land we both claimed to own.

I won, just so you know.

All I have to do is just to pay the 2.3 million euro that the area of land costs.

And pay off my legal fees.

And allow Gerry to appear on the Late Late Show.

Where he will burst onstage and throw a pie in my face…

Before mooning me.

And I have to buy him a pony.


Victory is Mine!

That guy in the back looks freaky.

That’s me there after the settlement, talking to a bunch of robot penises.

It’s such a relief to get the whole debacle out of the way now.

At least things were kept peaceful, and the land will be kept in pristine state.



Big Celebration party this weekend on Gorse Hill!

Boo-yah!
