Stop Enjoying Your Break and Start Posting God Dammit

Look ladies, get freegin’ posting. I’m in Ireland and I can’t be writing two blogs at once, lest I blog my bleedin’ brains out. And you, readers, please submit ideas for posts. I take requests for posts, and for songs that don’t suck. Send them to me here.

So here I am in Ireland again, for the third January in a row. I heard it was something like -7 degrees Celsius in New York today, so I’ll take grey sheep-scented air over that anyday. Jon is looking over my shoulder, as I type this very moment. We’ll have to save the “plan” for “later”.

So last night was New Year’s in Dublin for the second year in a row. We booked a room at the Harcourt Hotel to save us from the horrifying commute of getting back to Skerries from Dublin City after midnight on one of the busiest nightlife days of the year. We checked into our lovely accomodations, conveniently located above a nightclub called D-Two, and were given the key and directions to our room – 601. However, there was no sixth floor… “6” was code for “basement” apparently, as we went and checked out our room that was no doubt the janitor’s closet on less busy evenings. We sat in the dank and considered our options before deciding it would be best to request another room that wasn’t overlooking the smoking garden of the bar next door.

And we did. We got moved to another room, 310, which was actually on the third floor this time. The decadence of two twin beds, a shower smaller than a spot-a-pot, and tiny yellow ear plugs stowed in the bedside drawers was almost enough to convince me to stay in for the night, but, we had dinner plans and tickets to see Ireland’s 17th sexiest man in The Kinetiks.

And that we did. I wore a fucking awesome outfit that I unfortunately have no photos of, but let me describe it to you. Black tights, shiny black shorts ($7.50 thank you very much Forever 21), blue and red striped t-shirt ($15, sale at Urban) and a black vest ($12.50, Forever 21 I love you) with heels. And a shiny headband, courtesy of George Robert’s personal shopping. My makeup was hot too, and I don’t have to tell you, I looked fabulous. At least I did before three double vodkas…

But anyfart, my outfit ruled, and if there’s anything I’ve learned from anything, it’s that appearance is 90% of the law. We went out, we drank, we danced, and we went backstage where I inhaled about four packs worth of secondhand smoke.  Afterward, we stumbled the convenient three blocks back to our dual twin beds of love where I finally passed out after complaining about my fear of getting sick for about 20 minutes. My strong will prevailed, and I was victorious in my efforts to NOT get sick.

This morning I woke up feeling like hot dog-shit (not hotdog shit), and spent the majority of the day half asleep on Jon’s couch. All in all, it was a successful New Year’s. Y’all?
