another business trip

i did it

iíve been there

the belly of the beast

the ninth level of hell

iíve descended into the maelstrom, and iíve survived

the world is infested with drunk irishmen. the entire earth. i learned this on christmas eve, in shanghai, in a godless, communist society, at 11 a.m. i found an irish bar with two irishmen, and they were both drunk. and it finally dawned on me; these people have infested the planet. there are drunk irishmen all over the planet, drinking right now at this very moment

so i finally have a trip for work to dublin.

the cab from the airport was funny. i'm not naturally a chatty person, but the cabbie and i talked the entire way to the hotel. and he got me laughing; he sounded exactly like a good friend of mine when he does his irish accent

the social district is just across the street from where iím staying. itís the touristy place, but a whole lot of locals there, too. i walk to the end and decide iíll drink my way back. so i walk into the Treble Bar and order a Guinness. and suddenly iím home. in the belly of the beast. the epicenter. the singularity of all drunk irishmen that are downing guinness and god knows what else all over the world. i have descended into the center of the universe. a black hole. i never saw anyone drink anything except guinness. well, except for the guy that ordered two jamesonís and a ten-year-old bushmills

my goal was to drink my way back to the hotel. i never got out of this bar. i ended up drinking with two swedes, a canuck, a kiwi, and one guy that i never learned where he was from

yíall ever have guinness shots? guinness and baileyís in a shot glass. these are actually quite tasty. i recommend them highly

my girl friend has a business trip to dublin coming up. my first thought was to tell her how cool this area is. then i thought about how every woman here was being hit on by every guy here. she's not allowed to go there now

everybody seems to love the irish. thank god iím half irish
