So a coupla weeks ago I offered up, for your delectation, two Converse watches. All’s you had to do was leave a comment. Well the tallies have been counted and the winners are:

Yvonne, at comment 21: “A man walks into a fish shop with a salmon under his arm and asks “Do you do fish cakes?” . Shopkeeper replies “Of course”. “That’s great” says the guy “cos it’s this guy’s birthday!”. I may have had a glass of wine.”

and

Annie, at comment 32: “Right, I’m not even entering this one properly (even though I do likes the pretty watches) – I’m just here to leave a grumpy comment because I’m sick with flu and begging you to make the next competition a random pick a number out of a hat one, because my head is too full of snots to think of anything funny at the moment. Even when I’m not being a moany whinge-bag of sickness, I’m still no good with the funnies. Funny people get everything anyways: more friends, raucous laughter from randomers in the pub, thousands of adoring followers on Twitter etc. – they don’t need free watches added on to the list. I could go on but this will make less and less sense as the lemsip and nurofen kick in. *shuffles back under duvet*”

Hilarious, RIGHT?! So ladies, email me – rmaccabe [at] irishtimes.com – and I’ll send out your goodies.

In the meantime, have an amazing weekend! I’m feeling a little under the weather so am going to catch up on Fade St and Big Fat Gypsy Weddings and read Never Let You Go so I don’t ruin the book by seeing the film next week, and tomorrow night (very important), I am going to ring in my 27th year (as I am turning 26, work it out) in the Village, and begging the DJ to play this:

If you’re around the Camden / Wexford St area, come say hi! I’ll be the one man-repelling in denim and fur and, you know, accosting the DJ. (Actually I wanted to post this video, which is infinitely better, but embedding is disabled. Sob.)
