Safe and Sound

I made it to Ireland okay. It still hasn't hit me yet that I'm IN Ireland, and I'll be here for officially 24 hours in about 30 minutes. I still haven't adjusted to the time, really. My first day was fairly uneventful. We came back to my friend's apartment, and IT HAS THE MOST DOORS I'VE EVER SEEN!!! I think there are 8. Possibly 9. And they're all right next to one another. Basically, my friend's apartment is a farce.

She has a gorgeous view from her sitting room.... a field of sheep! I'm in heaven. I fully intend to take many pictures of this adorable sheep. They're grazing right now. We walked all over her town yesterday (my legs are a bit tired) and today is Day 1 of Dublin Exploration. We'll see how good I am at pouring a pint of Guinness.

I also saw her ex yesterday... he decided to impose on us. We went to dinner, and he left her with the check! Jerk! But you'd be proud (as would Gzilla). I didn't ACTUALLY harm him, and I was mostly nice... but I did get all of my little digs in. And let him know to be nice to my friend since they gave me all these pretty metal weapons at dinner. The worst part of it is, he's so damn charming! I didn't want to see him, because I knew that if I did, I couldn't stay mad at him for long.

I don't think I'll be able to post any pictures until I get home on Sunday, but I will be taking plenty. Don't worry!

Have a wonderful time, and if you see the Blarney Stone, give it a kiss for me! Oh and one to Colleen too, please.
