No Dublin for Me This Year...

I'm fond of the Irish.  I mean, sure, I know some irritating Irish people but in general I like the way they talk, I like how they always bring a book of gloomy poetry as a housewarming gift and I appreciate the seriousness with which they regard breakfast.

I've liked people for far less.

That's why I'm rather bummed to miss the European office party in Dublin this year - I'm too big to fly - so Ralf will be partying, breakfasting, chatting up Rory and Fergus and touring the Guinness factory on his own this year.

It's not that I don't love having kids but next time I call dibs on being the dad...!


  1. One of the results of the Celtic Tiger was the Breakfast Roll. 2 sausage, 2 rasher, 2 fried eggs, two black & two white pudding, 2 tomatoes. All between 2 slices of bread. There is even a song, here,

  2. Bummer... Dublin is supposed to be fabulous! I do like the Irish joie de vivre..

  3. It's probably too cold there anyway. Oh, wait. You live in Germany. ;-)

  4. How about I drink a Guinness for you?!?
    Wise call on not flying that pregnant -- I flew US-Germany once at 7 months pregnant, and on the return flight I was so exhausted I fell asleep at the gate and missed my connecting flight twice -- never again! But then again, I'm done having babies....

  5. Oh yes, you'll need to make up for it next year.

  6. Stay warm this year and party hard with babe next year!!
