Oh man. History FTW. Not that it's pleasant! Today I learned about the Easter Rising and STUFF and tomorrow is the trip to Malahide Castle and the coast *unrestrained glee* And then I'm going to go BACK to Kilmainham Gaol because I gave up on it today. You can't go through without a guided tour and I didn't want to wait for the 5:30 pm one when I have the ghost bus (:D) at 8pm. Tomorrow it is not an issue. If I have time I'll go to Dublinia at Christchurch Cathedral, but I'm not fussed. It's just spend time really. I'm more interested in the gaol. I really like this city too. Not in the 'omg I have to live here' way like Vienna and London and Melbourne, but in the 'this is really a wonderful place to visit' way. It'd probably be even better if I gave a crap about stout. SO MANY PEOPLE were lined up outside the Guinness brewery. Stinky!

So now I am relaxing with coffee, listening to Amanda Palmer and Lennon, writing My Boys, and gnerally wasting time until the ghost bus tour. Speaking of My Boys Look! I SWEAR I didn't arrange them like this, I found them like that and SQUEALED and got dirty looks...

Oh god, I had the BEST lunch. This two course thing with calamari and steak for 8 euro. Freakin' awesome! And I went into St Patrick's Cathedral which was incredible and the history is amazing, but I still think the one in Melbourne is prettier. It just IS.

I'll post more after the Ghost Bus because of the writing I am wishing to be doing. Plot bunnies, you are my FRIENDS never leave me?! Oh, and Neil Gaiman is a genius and now I have mentioned both Neil and Amanda in the same post because I love them both and SQUEEE.

PS I also love Michael Collins, but I think most people knew that?

PPS Do you think my singing is disturbing other guests?! Not that I care, they're getting a free concert. Because I'm a freaking diva. (That was partial sarcasm...)

PPPS Scout, there's a Fitzwilliam square here and I tried to find it for you and FAILED! But I'll try again tomorrow!! Let's see if my lame map-reading skills can help me out here...

Photos! I added descriptions to the ones yesterday because I found out what they are ;)

OH GOOD EXTRA REASONS FOR ME TO NEED TO GO TO IRELAND LIKE YESTERDAY.

:( It hurts. The pain.

If you had gone to Montana first, I'd have taken a ride over there and stowed away like a creeper.

I WANT TO FIND IT!!!! Dublin is small but twisty *nods sagely* At least it's not as hilly as freaking Edinburgh...

You would have fit in my suitcase too, you wee thing.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fitzwilliam_Square !!! Awesome! I am saying awesome about bloody history because I am a morbid thing.

I think I might have passed through it on the bus without knowing it *headdesk* I am clearly awesome with maps.

I hope you sing loudly for us when you come over. I can take you on a Ghost Tour of our house! I used to think it was haunted! I bet it'll be totally awesome and on par with London and Dublin, OBVIOUSLY. Because I will be your tyour guise.

YAY PLOT BUNNIES! I have had one too. Also MUST remember to ask you something and Flynn and Quinn when you come over. I haven't read the scenes you've written yet because I have been in the sun instead of on the internet BUT every time we walk into an antiqe shop leah is like ADRINA ADRINA ADRINA SHE WANTS TO CALL QUINN RIGHT NOW! And it's amusing.

OKAY! Off to have another drink! Leah stole me cup! She just came over to see me and read me comment and now she's going, about Adrina "SHE DOES! She missing QUinn even though she knowds they're together and she's like why are't you online writing to me and I need to ttell yuou everything!!!" because Adrina sort of owns Leah's brain.

RIGHT! See you! Love you!
