After all my postulating about NaBloPoMo yesterday I fell off the wagon in style - I didn't post yesterday because I didn't come home until 2 am. Someone at the Ours' work was leaving to go travelling, so a group of us met at Dicey's Garden (formerly the tackiest, Oirishist pub in Dublin - apparently it hasn't been for some time which made me feel old!) and did the usual drinking, chatting and laughing.
The hangover wasn't too bad this morning though, cos the Ours and I were careful to follow these steps from the drinking-on-a-school-night bible:
- Eat beforehand. We went to Cafe Bliss for their early bird menu, two courses for 10 euro and what gorgeous courses they were too. I will definitely go back there again.
- Drink slowly. 'Nuff said.
- Drink several pints of water and take a painkiller before bed.
Sounds simple but it works! Shame about NaBloPoMo but at least I broke it for a deserving occasion. I'd do it again goddamn it!
I haven't been reading many blogs recently or commenting - I apologise but from my frantic scanning of your RSS feeds I can see a lot of you have the same problem as I'm having, namely blogging so much that you have no time to visit and read others. NaBloPoMo means that my daily unread posts have tripled! I'm still determined to post everyday but I do miss having the time to read your updates, but for now I've just set all new posts to read and I'm going to start again, tomorrow.
