Deadlines and D**kheads Summary

Deadlines and D**kheads by Anne Gildea

There's more to life than this, isn't there?
  • Quick spin in the gym at 7.30
  • Visit Breege and new baby in hospital (Monica's orders)
  • Appearance on 'Afternoon Stew' to discuss crap American book Trash the Pants -- if you want to get a man, that is (ring Mammy to let her know)
  • Preparatory de-fuzz at J' Moi
  • Interview Paddy Finn (who?) about upcoming Curate's Lane gig
  • Declan for dinner at Chumps -- keep him CALM
  • Review new play for Way Hey Lady
For freelance journalist Mary McNice, life is like the froth on a cappuccino -- no substance. She's tired of faking 'attitude' for her weekly column, of trying to keep up with what's Hot and what's NOT, which colour is this week's new black. Even her lover, the hunky Rory, has another lover on the side.

What's a girl to do?
