I promise I haven't dropped off the face of the earth, things have just gotten a bit crazy at work! For four consecutive work-days (Thursday, Friday, Monday, Tuesday) I had to be two people simultaneously, which is never fun. I really needed a drink after work yesterday, but unfortunately it was one of my other-work days so I didn't get home until 11. Boo hiss. But I did have TWO drinks Tuesday night at Quizzo (but only because the kitchen lost our order, so our server gave us a round)
The Ireland countdown is at 17 days. It seems like I just bought my ticket... and that was when the countdown was like 2 months! I can't believe that I'm just WEEKS away from leaving the country. WEEKS. I have luggage (thanks, Daddy Dearest) and I have new clothes (thanks, Urban Outfitters and Ann Taylor Loft). I don't have any travel-size items yet.
I have no idea what I'll be doing once I'm over there. My friend that I'm visiting doesn't know her work schedule yet, but there will be a few days I'm there that she'll have to work. I don't want to just sit around while she's serving beer to the locals (how boring!) but I have no idea what to do!! I won't be in Dublin... we're going to be a little further inland. And a little more rural (I think).
The one thing I know I WILL be doing is Thursday of the week I'm there, I'll be calling the radio station from a pub. We do a segment on our AM station called "Thirsty Thursday" (real original, I know, but it isn't my show, so.) where we taste-test beer on the air (my job is so hard). When I told them I was going to Ireland, I immediately saw the glimmer of an idea in their eye, and I agreed to call the station during the Thirsty Thursday segment. And since my friend works at a pub, that's where we'll be! Everyone over there loves her, so if she tells them to participate with what I say, they totally will. I hope it goes okay. There's going to be a bit of a delay because of the overseas-ness of it all.
I'm starting to get really pumped, though!! We finally figured out how I'm getting to the airport. And I need to get myself some Unisom so I SLEEP on the plane, since I'll be landing at 2am for me, but it's really 7am where I am? So I'll be ASLEEP on that 7 hour flight thankyouverymuch. I'm still a little terrified of flying. Not so much the plane crashing-part, but more the I get lost in the airport and get stuck there for a week part? Yeah.
