You are my sunshiiiiiiiine

So I've had far too much coffee today, and I'm just back from a job interview. Here's what maaaaad insomnia mixed with maaaaaas caffeine addiction looks like. All while dressed in a suit. Huzzah!

You are my sunshine from Conor Darrall on Vimeo.


  1. Fucking hell. Not only do you have the sexiest accent EVER, but you're funny and good looking too! I think I love you a little bit.

  2. Dude. You're freaking INSANE but I love it. And name-checked again? Thanks a bunch, though I'm not entirely certain what I've done to deserve it, but heck I'm in a narcissistic mood so I'll take it.

    And preaching to the choir about the damn unemployment dude. I mean, I'm doing a bullshit data entry temp job right now (until Friday) but it's SO interesting and beneath me that I can read people's blogs during the day (even though my lunch break ended AGES ago) and still catch up and be ahead of the curve. I say it's their own fault for not blocking the internet. It's not like I need the internet, I'm a glorified spreadsheet. With a belt, no braces!

  3. Omg I am so happy that I watched your video just now. You made me smile so much!! Your adorable & funny!!!! I am soo happy for you that got 3 calls, & you look snazzy in a suit! Good luck!! I hope some sunshine is there for you today. I laughed so hard when you brought up the post-it. hehe. Kickass Suspenders! ;)

  4. omg. serious issues . . .

    but it totally cracked me up today. thanks dude. Nik

    ps--good things are on their way to you!!! I know it!

    and ur soooo welcome and i am hoping hoping and hoping that u get one of three jobs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    and i LOVE ur suspenders and I LOVE even MORE that they are red!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


  6. Novelista, exactly what I was thinking on the red suspenders! Love that they're red. My fave color! Good luck to you, Mr. Farrell! :-)

  7. I'm speechless. Hilarious. I especially liked the sign for "love" during the song. Keep up the fantastic work, and good luck on the job interviews this week! Let us know how they go :)

  8. You really do have a great blog here. I have a blog myself which brings inspiration and guidance to people all around the world. Life is hard enough, and I hope my site can contribute anything positive to someone's day.

    I'd like to exchange links with you to help spread some traffic around between each other. Please let me know if this is possible. Until then, keep up the good work.


  9. omg u f'n NUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    the "braces" are hot! hahahaha you're so funny. i can't even pick a fav part of that whole thing... well, i mean, i luvs my shout out!

    i enjoyed that SO much that....



    pshhh!!! hahahha omg, luv u*

    goooooood luck with the interviews!!!!!!!!!!!


  10. LOL. Oh my, you are amazingly ridiculous in a spectacular way. Serious smile on my face right now. Are you anywhere near central London? We should feed our coffee addictions together soon!

  11. Haha -- I hope you were as manic as that in the interview, you rock! I also hope you rocked their socks off and they have offered you the job already :)

  12. Those blue eyes - I'd have a hard time not hiring you!

    Love the braces, in one of my Uni classes - they told us men that wear 'braces' suspenders have a underlying fear of castration.

    Good Luck!

  13. Wow! Thanks for the positive response guys. Never before have I felt so happy to be a relentless caffeine addict or crazy-person. Much love


  14. Now that is unfair. If I had an Irish (Welsh/Scottish/any kind of British Isles) accent I too would have...39 followers, oh wait...

    It's why Americans love Jonathan Rhys Meyers.

    Irishman piping on a pipe! I must stumble this to my best friend.

    Congrats on the job front. It's a good year to be employed.

  15. Hey...love the pipe, the braces, the ocean blue eyes & the overall insanity. Good luck on those jobs, I'm sure you charmed them all.

  16. brilliant. so are you hoping your employers will watch you signing and see how supportive you are of equal-opportunity employment? if that doesn't work, the suspenders are fantastic - a definite conversation starter - and the pipe gives you a truly distinguished air. if a more traditional career path doesn't seem to be in the cards, you could, possibly, have a future in childcare, or maybe performance art...? whatever your goals, i'd say you're a shoe in :)
    just teasing. good luck!

  17. The song and the fact that you call them braces just about made my day. And of course your accent but that's because I'm American and inclined to melt at the sound of foreign accents. I'm flying on Aer Lingus and I'm certain that I'm going to spend my entire flight swooning.

  18. PS. I do have a name. Ania. But apparently logging in using wordpress makes me named blog? Weird.
