  • i just flew into ireland, and boy are my arms tired. its sunny and beautiful....high pressure city....whihc unfortunately means flat as an irish pancake. i am optimistic about later in the week tho.

    had a full irish breakfast the moment i arrived: fried eggs, fried sausage, fried tomato, fried ham, and fried black pudding (blood sausage)

  • nope, still here, and here are the developements: the local surfshop hooked me up with a longboarder who rents boards, and i scored a 9'2" single fin, kinda old skool, shaped in cornwall, england. paddles like a dream, which is good, because it remains flat as bonneville. paddled across clonakilty bay and back yesterday, about 2 miles, for exercise.

    todays activities include going out fishing with my brother in law on his boat, then a bbq, at which, my mojito blending services have been requested....uh oh.

    Have fun over there, and don't worry about a thing while you're gone: I put psycho in charge of your room here. And he moved into your house til you get back, too. Which reminds me, Hey Psycho, what time is the party starting tonight? ::) ;D
