Marie Connolly: Our Woman in Dublin

Marie went to David Grey in the Point last night. These are pictures of Mr Grey grooving up the crowd which she sent on to me in the wee hours of this morning. Not pictured are Marie and Julie hyperventilating over Sail Away. You see how current I am? I have representatives all over the shop reporting on all that's happening. All for you.


S'alright. Just remember me when you're buying your Christmas vodka.

Sail away with me Lucy, put your heart in my hands, sail away with me Lucy now, now, sail away with me, what will be will be, I want to hold you now, now...

I think you'll find "dave" spells his surname with an A.

But maybe Grey is more apt. Cos he's dull and boring. Like shit.

Yes yes yes, David Gray and all that ... but where are those legendary concert pictures of Mary O' Slagge & her Swingin' Organ Grinders live at the Ladieslip Leisure Center in 2003?

Adynaton (from Greek: a-: without and dynasthai: to be able) is a figure of speech in the form of hyperbole taken to such extreme lengths as to suggest a complete impossibility.

Adynaton was an almost ubiquitous literary and rhetorical device during the Classical Period and was known in Latin as impossibilia. A frequent usage was to refer to one highly unlikely event occurring sooner than another:

One can expect an agreement between philosophers sooner than between clocks. Seneca

However it largely fell into disuse during the Middle Ages before undergoing a minor revival in the works of a few romantic poets, who would boast of the power of their love, and how it could never end.

Together, we shall sooner see, I, & you, The Rhône tarry, & reverse its course, The Saône roil, & return to source, Than this my fire ever die down Maurice Scève

Further examples

* It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God. Book of Matthew 19:24
* The chances of Lucy getting any christmas presents or goodwill of any form from me for Christmas are equatable to the chances Hell has of freezing over.
