We Came, We saw, We got drunk (well, me and Fretful did anyway)
I made my way to the meeting place on time, not knowing who to look for. So, as a result, I was standing within 3 feet of Ruadh and Fretful Porpentine for about 10 minutes.
Eventually, Ruadh came over to me, as it was pretty obvious that I was waiting for someone.
Then Wendy (ruadh) saw Nora (fretful porpentine) and called her over, quick introductions were made, and a short conversation about how we got there ensued.
And then, as if by magic, Yojimbo, (Peter) appeared.
And he was just as he described, Tall, bearded and thirsty looking.
Again, quick introductions were made and off we went.
We were undecided as to where to go, but a quick decision to get alcohol was made and off to one of the Best pubs in Dublin, O’Neills.
After a few brief examples of the traffic in Dublin, we had made our way to the bacchaus, and a table was made and the rounds had started.
Among the topics Discussed:
How we found the Board
IS there a Cecil.
The different pronounciations of Cecil.
Trolls we knew and Loved.
A quick explination to Yojimbo of “Melingate” and “The Phaedeybucks concern.”
How easy it is to be out of your depth in GD.
The Strangest places we have been to.
Education systems in Ireland and the States.
Which posters we wish to meet. (and yes, Coldfire, you were mentioned!!! )
The current situation in the North (a quick conversation!!).
Several rounds later, (including one ordered in my name while I was at the Bathroom!!!) and last orders were served and drank.
We left O’Neills and went looking for a late bar. (for more alcohol). We went to Hogans, which serves a late pint, via a toilet stop in a Chip Shop, during which we had to buy food.
Once in the pub, Yojimbo bought a round of strange coktails in honor of Democritus, which were drank quickly.
As I was at this stage, very tired (read: Drunk), I decided to stop drinking as I had an interview for a radio station in the morning,(BTW, I got it!! I’m a DJ!!! Yay!!).
We finished up at about 1.30 and made our way home. Numbers were exchanged, and future plans were made. me and Nora shared a taxi home, as her hostel was on the way to my house. Ruadh left and Yojimbo dissappeared “to meet a friend”, but I suspect there was a strip club involved!! j/k!!)
Let me be the first to say how much it rocked. It kicked more ass than a 4 legged man in an ass kicking contest.
There were photos taken, and Hopefully Wendy will post all the pictures!
(Believe me, Guys, ruadh is a fox. totally!Move over Shayna! we have a new prom queen!!)
Nora, who is one off the coolest people I have ever met, and a cutie to boot! Is touring Europe and has my total respect for being able to do something that I couldnt!!)
As for Yojimbo, we’re going to have to consume very large quantities of alcohol some night, to settle our arguement about Seinfeld or Fraiser.
So to all, Thanks guys, I had a total blast and cant wait for the next one!!
