Right, I have 13 Minutes still to go on the icafe clock. 2.25 Euros for 1/2 an hour. This is internet addiction, dropping in on on E2 from a foreign city. Excuse the roughness of the writeup.

I fairness, I just aplied for a job via a website and checkedmail for replies so this is not pure idelness.

Dublin is a wonderfull little town with cold weather, but still charming and warm. It lacks the big-city facelessness of London or the third-world fear factor of Cape Town

But the Celtic tiger is a feeble kitten right now. Little IT work, not so well paid and none at short notice.Had a really nice stroll along the Liffey this morning, over at the millenium bridge.

Next week I will go to London, the monster that ate South-East england. I will succeed there. There is no other option. I am looking forward to, in no particular order:
Microbrewery stout and comedy in temple bar tonight
A bus trip into the country, leaving from the tart with the cart tomorrow am.
Seeing old friends in London
The dubious charms of the London Boozehounds
Finding interesting employment
Losing that "living out of a suitcase" feeling.
