I finished Sunday 25th at 1.30 am, reaching 50700 words at last. It was a blast, and something I've needed to do for a long long time - the deadline got me off my butt and actually writing, rather than procrastinating and complaining about lack of inspiration and whatnot. I wish I'd known about it s...

Hey! It was indeed a great pleasure - sorry I couldn't go to lunch with you, but a friend had required my presence, and you don't say no to pregnant friends (not if you value your life anyways!) Don't regret too much about the crepes. The last batch I made almost killed me, and certainly poisonned m...

:shock:

Somebody visited my blog?

For real?

I mean, someone that I didn't have to physically corner and threaten and cajole and bribe?

...

Hot damn.

The website's not much to look at, we're a proximity business, word of mouth and all that. Street adress is 1 Payne's Lane, but that's a side street. To find us, find the supermarket Dunnes Stores, then from there ask (or look) for the pub Rayner's. We're right next door! :p Of course, I don't work ...

Athlone's halfway between Dublin and Galway on the main East-West artery of the country; you HAVE to go past it if you're driving straight through.

Finding a reason to stop, now, that's another problem! :lol:

Well, I don't want to scare you, but the weather has been abysmal for the past 3 days. It's been an impressively nice summer, but we're already staring to pay for it. Yesterday it was raining so hard I saw a bunch of fish get out of the river and head towards the nearest pub - even the ducks were we...

:oops: Oh, I didn't mean to imply that I should have gotten answers, sorry if that's how it sounded! Yep, P2P is file sharing - in other words, illegally obtained music. In my own defense (if only partial) I used it mostly to get back the music I owned but left behind in France, and the content of t...

Hello, ladies and gents! I've already posted on the forums - I know, it's not the best of forms, but since nobody answered to those posts, it's still time to do the polite thing I assume. :D Anyways. Name's Jerome. I'm French (and grumpy, yes, even though it's often redundant to put those two words ...

Not sure if it's appropriate to post reading advice when you're a total board newbie, but I'm a bookworm and can't resist the temptation! ^_^ I just finished reading 3 books by Steven Pressfield: Gates of Fire , The Afghan Campaign , and Tides of War . All 3 are set in Ancient Greece - and all three...

First post here (hi folks!) to please please please suggest: Ireland? Anywhere in Ireland (I'd suggest Dublin for exposure and size, but it's a nasty place - Galway is much more fun. Athlone would be best for me, but maybe a bit small! 8) ). Please! :) Oh, or France of course. I'd definitely fly bac...
