Friday Flashback...

Getting my passport, has me thinking of previous trips.  I have many files in my email and found a few old mass emails sent from the summer I lived in Ireland.

Life in far

I have settled into so weird form of small town routine. I have been working 50+ hours a week, but during the time I am not attempting to look forbidding to deter persons from shoplifting, I do have some fun. Monday's and Tuesday's are reserved for work, Wednesday's is movie night. I travel the 5 min walk to the Dingle Theatre, which consists of one lobby with a booth to buy my ticket and a booth right beside of it to buy candy, soda, etc., but they will not allow you to buy any of the junk food at the ticket booth, it is kinda funny and I'm sure I'm not describing it well. The movie screen is old school, a curtin opens up to reveal the show and large fake planters of flowers (much like a funeral home) are on either side of the screen. I am such a creature of habit and my need to sit in the middle of the middle, I always seem to sit in seat E9. :) So far I have seen, "Old School", "25th Hour"(which was great btw), "Rules of Attraction", and last night "Bruce Almighty".

Thursday allows for drinks at "The Small Bridge". Friday drinks everywhere, but most likely "Adam's Pub", Saturday dancing at the disco on top of "Small Bridge", Sunday drinks at "AirConer" and sometimes dancing at "The Hillgrove" the one nightclub. So there you have it lots of drinking and working. :) Also everyday I walk by the bay to remind myself I'm in Ireland and as someone very smart told me "better to work like a dog in Ireland than the U.S." (Thanks A)

Ok kids, it's my day off and it is actually sunny outside so I'm off to pack a lunch, book, and music and head to a small sandy area by the water, not really a beach, but it works. Miss ya all, and send lots of emails.

Why Am I At Work...

My head is better, but these people keep talking.  Doesn't help the minor headache I still have.  At least my stomach is back in working order, at least it was, then I ate some toast and I'm not sure if it will continue that way.  Damn weather trying to kill me. 

New Snapple today, Trop A Rocka, not bad.  Snapple fact, India has more English speakers than the United States.

This Morning's Snapple Fact...

"The chicken is the closest living relative of Tyrannosaurus Rex."

I would never have guessed.  Of course chickens are evil, so maybe that makes a bit more sense now.

Lovely evening for a long walk, very Irish-esk. Signs of spring everywhere.

Somewhere Else...

Today, I just kinda want to be somewhere else.  This morning started off delightfully with a nice breakfast out, I don't do that often, so it was a real treat. I then went and got my passport photo taken, yikes small rats around the city were scrabbling to get away.  The photo even broke the machine, I couldn't get my photos. I have to go later this evening to see if they could get them to print. If not, gotta do them again.

My work day has been fine, not a lot of stress today.  However, I really just want to be someplace else.  I'm not asking for much, maybe a bit of sun, nice jazz playing in the background, and a good book in hand or time to work on my knitting.  Ahh, talk amoungst yourselves while I drift away for a moment.

A pint of Killians in my little scenrio might be nice too. Oh and a nice gentleman in a kilt to serve the pint.
