ANYWAY, I started off the day by walking to Regents Park for one last commune with it. It was lovely and a little bit cold! Which is good because yes, I do have a sunburn! Then I checked out of the hotel and took the tube to Heathrow, and as Clare said, there were massive delays. Still, once I got there, everything was easy. No lines, nothing. And I had TWO milkshake frappes from Caffe Nero. Oy Vey. They're so good...
After the hotel debacle, I have to say my room is AWESOME. It's HUGE. It's a single, but I have a double bed, and and bathtub and huge windows and a chandelier. And it's the cheapest hotel I'm staying in! Also definitely the fanciest. And the man who owns it is HILARIOUS. He said he needed something to light up his day and then I walked in. And he said 'Tank you fer choosin' my hotel' and I was like *giggles* "OKAY!" Old Irish man FTW. He is like 80 and awesome.
I walked down O'Connell Street to Grafton Street and I ate at TGIFriday's (shut up) before tooling around St. Stephen's Green. Tomorrow I'm doing the hop on/hop off bus tour because it takes you everywhere and Dublin isn't all that big. Which leaves the next day for my tour of the coast. I'm going to Malahide Castle WHEEEE! Oh, and the ghost bus which is tomorrow night :D
When all is said and done, it's off to Montana to be with my peeps :D
I bought books on Grafton Street. For some reason, I cannot get in to Wicked. All this stuff is happening and they're all 'omg she's green' and I'm like 'omg stop whining, where is Stephen King!?' of course I finished The Stand in Vienna (SO AMAZING). I decided I give up on Elphaba and I bought American Gods by Neil Gaiman, because Circe does a game based on it. And I got The Time Traveller's Wife because Lauren told me to, and she's the one who told me to read The Bronze Horseman which I cannot express my love for in words. SO YAY new books! I decided to branch our from my beloved Mr King, because I really should read other books too... And he knows our love is pure.
PS Irish people are strange (I do realise this implicates me, here...). I like it. But they do yell a lot!
