Wow, today was pretty freakin' spectacular. I decided that I would take the day slow and relax to give my body a break as I have been walking all over the place and I was getting stiff. I started my morning by getting all my laundry done and hanging it up (we don't use the dryer to conserve energy), then walked into town. Yesterday, while in town, I noticed a tattoo parlor but they were closed; so I wanted to stop in and talk to the guys. The guy at the desk paired me with Owen, who is best at color work. I talked to him and looked at his portfolio, and I really really like him! I feel very comfortable with him, he's a nice guy. I ran home, got my computer, and ran back so I could show him pictures of the clovers I want, and he's going to have the drawing ready on either Monday or Tuesday! Not only that, but he's also available to start next week! Wooooo! So excited to see what he comes up with. Hopefully everything goes well and I'll have my first tattoo within the next week or two.

After that I went into my little cafe. They were ridiculously busy! When the lady got a free minute she came over to talk to me and she wanted to know if I had a job lined up for my time here, and when I said no, she said she'd put in a good word for me if I did decide I wanted to get a job! I didn't even ask, I thought that was super nice! While I was there I finished the book I've been reading (The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane) and it was fantastic! I loved it!

When I got home, Finbarr was here with his girlfriend, so I sat and talked with her for a while, while we waited for the rugby match to start. I've decided that I really like rugby, it looks like sooooo much fun!

Okay, now here's the point where those who are faint of heart should stop reading! (Yeah, like that ever works. Hah!).....

I was watching the rugby match with Finbarr and Nicola when Kate came downstairs asking if I wanted to go out with her and a few friends, and to be honest, I'd already had a few. Hah, so I met Kate's sister Illeen, and we went into town. Soooooo much fun!!! We hit basically every bar except for two (i.e. 6? 7?) Met lots of fun people, had some interesting encounters...like the guy that followed the three of us for the last 4 bars or so and kept trying to hug us or dance with us. Yeaaaaah, he came up to us as we were leaving and gave all of us goodbye hugs....got a bit friskey and sucked on my ear! Ewwww, and it was sloppy too, as he was hella drunk. Gross. Haha, good stories....Other than that it was just a flat out fun night. Talked to a bunch of locals, danced...fun stuff! We finally got a taxi home when the club we were in got shut down, at around 4, and got home at 4:30 AM. First night out in Ireland! Monumental!
