Man 1 Bank 0

Hi all, Library Diva is back!  Apologies to all for the long, unexpected sojourn, library diva has a short attention span and is easily distracted by things like her newly installed upc box.  Anyhoo, heres to a summer of blogging and a quick recap of what library diva has been up to over the past 6 weeks or so:

Moved house twice (sort of)
Got hopes raised and subsequently dashed by the 3 sunny days we got in May.
Went to Forbidden fruit in Kilmainham (Awesome, check it out next year).
Co-hosted a tea party and ate lots of cake.
Visited a gym for the first time in 4 years and kinda liked it.
Attended a fabulous dinner party.
Took a tour of the midlands, visited an eco village and watched a good friend of mine jump
 out of a plane for fun.
Got excited by the final season of the wire, a.k.a the best tv show ever!
Heard the amazing true story of Patrick Combs, the ordinary guy who 'had a bank by the balls'.

Man 1 Bank 0
The year is 1995, Patrick Combs has just recieved a junk mail check for $95,093.35. 
The cheque is clearly a fake and he decides to deposit the cheque into his account as a practical joke.
Bizzarely, his account is credited for the $95,093.35 and what ensues is a comical sequence of events worthy of a farce

Man 1 Bank 0 was on in the pavillion theatre, Dun laoghaire as part of a 20 show tour of Ireland.
The last show will be shown in Port laoise this Wednesday the 29th June http://www.man1bank0.com/dates.cfm

If you can't make the show, you can read the story in the book 'Man 1 Bank 0' by Patrick Combs which was published in 2010.
