traump came to ireland last week. i was so sick of hearing about him on our news. everything was trump this and trump that. like he’s some sorta god or something. he’s a fucking idiot. i cant stand him. he’s a baffoon. A clown. I hate his arogant ways. He’s so arogant. So damn full of himself. All you hear on our news is how the US wants to trade with ireland, at least that is what he was saying. He met our taoiseach, thats our leader of the country, his name is leo varadka or however you spell it. He also met our president. they all had a big dinner in trumps resort in county clare. He has a resort there. and they made a huge deal out of his sons going to the bar and buying a round of drinks for everyone in there. stupid fucking idiots the lot of them. he was only here two nights but you’d think it was a lot longer there was so much hullabaloo about it on our news. He played a round of golf at his resort. He should just stay away. We didnt want him here. there were lots of protests, lots of people hate him and didnt want him visiting our country at all.

That today is Main Street USA Day? On the birthday of Sinclair Lewis, American novelist, (1885), celebrate small towns everywhere! Sinclair Lewis was born in Sauk Center, Minnesota. In 1930, he became the first writer from the United States to be awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature, “for his vigorous and graphic art of description and his ability to create, with wit and humor, new types of characters.”

That today is Giant Panda Day? This week in 1936, the first live giant panda from China was brought to the United States by clothing designer Ruth Harkness. Named Su-Lin, the male bear cub arrived in San Francisco and was subsequently sold to the Brookfield Zoo near Chicago for $8,750. It marked the beginning of an extensive series of pandas going abroad from China.

So the storm is almost here! The news said by midnight the winds would be really strong and there would be a massive amount of rainfall!
I am so glad to be at mom and dads house!
I think its gonna be a looong night!
I am safe though and thats what matters!
I hope there wont be too much damage from the storm. Today the sun was shining, it was 21 degrees C here! So the calm really did come before the storm!
Anyway, I’m sure the howling winds will keep me up, so I will prepare for a night of little to no sleep!
How are the storms in the USA now?
Spain had a massive one too and 8 people died in it!
I hope nobody dies in our storm!

I dont do weird foods! I’m not a fan!
I tasted some things before that were not weird for some, but for me, they were!
I tasted some foreign foods, like spanish dishes, french dishes, etc. I wasnt a fan. I did however like the US foods I tasted, which included bycen burgers!
I also have tasted biscuits and gravy, and all I gotta say on that is, yuck! I hated it!
We dont have that here. We have biscuits but you call them cookies in the US, we dont have the same type of biscuits that are available in the USA.
Also I have tasted fig nutents, is that what they’re called? Again, yuck! Noooo. Not for me.
