All in all it was an amazing weekend and I'm so grateful I was included. A big thank you to all the ladies, and I'll see you at the wedding, where the revelry will continue I know there will be some who will chime in with "Temple Bar is full of British Hen and Stag nights " so I'm chiming in for you; yes, and they're bad too, but if you think it's only the Brits responsible for the obnoxious behaviour on hens then you are nationalistically deluded.
So, it’s not just the U.S. that has its own brand of train wreck Telly, you don’t have to go that far to find it’s made its way to this side of the pond.
I often think that one night I'll just go for it - get a bright dress, put on some fake tan, and try to pass for an authentic Dublin Girl. In the past I've referred to these girls as Orange Girls (which sounds mean, but it's TRUE) but after a friend misunderstood my use of Orange Girl and thought that I meant to dress up like someone in the Ulster Defense League I've opted for the more general Dublin Girl. I'll be visiting Cork for Paddy's Day in a couple of weeks - maybe I'll take the opportunity of being in a city where few people know me and try to pull off the look. Wish me luck!
) for suggestions – horror, comedy, romance, history – I can set you up with whatever you want! Might as well put this degree to good use, right?
PS Also, while I'm sort of on the subject, go read Marian Keyes' books. Woman is a legend.
I don't know! NYC is awesome. There are things I miss (in no particular order: sushi, shops open late, my friends/family, UNIQLO, better waitstaff service) - but when I was in New York I felt an ache for Dublin. I like it here. I want to stay.
