I am quite overcome with emotion.
Our Glorious Leader has taken time off from his busy
holidays schedule to grace us with a Christmas message.
I can see he had difficulty in holding back the emotion as he reads his carefully scripted message off the autoprompt, and I think he succeeds quite well. In fact, if I think he almost defies the illusion that he was an emotionless marionette with the strings carefully edited out. Also I have to congratulate him on his excellent translation of his speech from German.
I am delighted to hear that he thinks face to face is better than facetime[?]. Maybe this means he intends to spend more time with the people instead of swanning off to China or Brussels? Maybe he will be dedicating some time to the Plain People of Ireland, as up until now the only time he made an appearance here was when there was a photo opportunity at the opening of some factory or other?
So the economy is going to pick up after the shortest day? I honestly didn't realise that the economy was so dependent on the solar cycle. I must have missed that lesson in my economics classes.
What cheers me most though is the eyes. I am a great believer in judging a person by their eyes, and in Dame Enda I can see the personality, the intelligence and the humour shining through, that befits the Great Man who is personally leading me in life.
I feel reassured.
