ah we came in 5th place. Not bad IMO. Could've been better, but we had great fun anyway. Especially with a group from Frysia and some English. We found out that the prices at the Gym in which the competition was held were scandalously high, but we found a nearby sports canteen :D where we could have the same for less than half of the price. The frysians and the English found it somewhat later on. We had our own party. Craic's 90!
I didn't get back to the bus quite sober, and we had some more in the bus :).
How are you?
Hi Lisa! Sorry it took me so long to get back to you! I had a client give birth last week. it was a few days long & I was a bit out of it. I've barely explored the liveIreland pages here, but Im looking fwd to a chat sometime... once I locate it!
Never been to NY yet huh? Its an experience for sure... but it doesn't compare to Ireland, IMO! (Maybe that's cause I'm from here :) )
How are you now? Haven't heard of you in a long time. Hope you're doing fine. I am, for sure.
Just wanted to let you know I have uploaded a (part of a) new song of mine, and since I know you appreciate a wide variety of styles, I thought you might quite like it.
Hope to chat with you soon.
I am originally from Houston but moved to Phoenix in 1988. Sure don't miss that humidity :) This Ireland.com site is fantastic. Anyway, just wanted to say hello to another Houstonian via Dublin!!
I just remembered I hadn't answered you here yet. I'm doing fine. Are you enjoying your fresh weekend yet? I am. for a long time already. Our finals didn't work out the way we hoped, but still, there weren't any accidents, so they were ok :) I'm going to add some music to my page which my fun orchestra (so not the official marching band) is going to play. I think you'll like it ;)
Hope to meet you in the chat soon.
Well, it goes like: Live according to the customs of the past, but speak in today's language. It's a quote from Noctes Atticae: Liber I by Aulus Gellius.
It kinda portrays my behavior and principles.
I'm really glad to make friends this fast and I'm looking fwd to reinforce my friendships each day more.
Thanks for the warm welcome Lisa, everyone seems very nice on here. It's a very friendly croud. I actually haven't been to any in Texas. Those pictures are from an SCA event in Southern California. Lots of folks running around in armor on a field whomping each other silly. It's great fun though ;) and like a medieval fair there is lots of cultural stuff as well as drinking and dancing around the fire at night. I'm sure they have to have chapters of the SCA in Texas. I think there is an event coming up soon in Estrella Arizona.
40.....Old???? Age is a state of mind. You are only as old as you think you are. My wife's friends (mainly the women for some reason, generally never their husbands/boyfriends) would ask me "how does it feel to be.. "30", "40", "45"???" I responded "The same as it did yesterday, why?" People are to wrapped up in acting their age. My wife says that at times when I get together with my friends from high school (yes there is a group of about 15 of us. I graduated in '78 and we still see each other on a regular basis) get together we act like kids. There was the traditional Boxer short competion at each others weddings. Right smack dab on the middle of the dance floor. Granted we do some stupid things "for people our age" but who cares. We are having fun. whats the phrase. Life is wasted on the youth"
Just a quick *hugs* and hope you are doing fine. My better half just turned 40 last month and is hanging in there...of course, surgery she has tomorrow doesn't help her feel much younger.... its on the knee..but still... :-(....
Hi Lisa. Canada is definitely a beautiful country. As much as I love Ireland, I'm pretty dedicated to my homeland here too...which is as it should be! Yeh, the bellydancing was awesome, I hated to quit it but couldn't be out two nights in a week and I really wanted to keep doing my violin, so bellydance had to go...for now!
