|Going on holiday, savvy?
Mad Scientess Jane Expat
I'm leaving tomorrow morning to join my doppleganger and her boyfriend for our pirate island tour of Ireland and will be away until the end of the month. It's unlikely that I'll be checking LJ or my e-mail while I'm traveling. If you need to reach me for some reason, the best method is to text my mobile.
The pink stars mark some of the places we plan to
Don't you have a honeymoon to plan? If you want to do it cheaply, there are actually some gorgeous hostels that offer private rooms for not very much more than a dorm in Donegal.
Arr, tis a fine trip. Be ye seeing the Giant's Causway?
Alas, no - there wasn't time. We needed to spend our time in N. Ireland in Derry, for a number of reasons. But I don't feel too deprived, after spending time on the Inishowen peninsula. I'll save the gushing for when I post pictures.
Oh, badass. I want your life when I grow up.
Piece of cake. Find yourself a job you don't enjoy and a partner for whome you're willing to give up that and everything else to follow halfway around the world.
Bring me back a peg leg! Oh- please, please please... And, um. a wooden eye. yeah. Oh, yeah- and could I get you to steal a tall ship for me, um, please.
'kthanks. Have fun. Don't forget your cutlass. Oh- and don't forget to show no mercy, keep warm, and take out the biggest lug first. I know- I can be such a granny sometimes.
Hah. You know, that last bit of advice there turned out to be prophetic, as you'll see later when I transcribe my journal here. Two nights ago I had to hold a man a foot taller than me in his chair with my other fist drawn for ten minutes to keep him from punching another man. I doubt I could have done it if (a) he wasn't very drunk and (b) I wasn't so fucking pissed that he'd tried to touch me inappropriately two minutes prior.
sounds fun! have a good time and take lots of photos for those of us stranded stateside :)
Careful what you ask for! I brought two 256 MB compactflash cards and had to empty one of them while in Derry so I could continue to shoot.

i hope you get your hands on some delightful booty!
(i had to)
Hehe. Most of my booty is in the form of images and memories. And a few books. Because I don't think there's much of a market here for lonely Irish farmer boys. ;-)
Now, that was an easy directive to fulfill. :-D Thanks.
