Let the barrels roll, let the Guinness flow. Step into the world of darts, where Miles Edward O'Brien and Julian Bashir fought/performed their heroic battles with those small but sharp arrows. And taste the flavor/flavour of cider, Newcastle Brown Ale, Shepherd's Pie, Lamb Stew with soda bread, Irish potato cakes and corned beef hash. Listen to the musicians who play their traditional folk songs with their typical instruments (fiddle...). By the way : isn't/ain't that Barbara who joined them ? Go, Bugs, Go music... Anyway, let's toast to this new environment, where even Pink found its place. And for the guys who don't like Irish food, there's always moral officer Tish who will gladly prepare another exotic meal, with or without golf sticks. And Elf will soon smell where the whisk(e)y resides. Oh, and there's the Viper Canadian of the EE series arriving.
We still need some decoration work to be done, but I'm sure our other regular Ten Forward members will help performing this task. Aye...

All done with schoolwork for indefinitely.Well. Kind of. I'm all done doing boring student work indefinitely. I'll be teaching classes in a few months, but I imagine that's much more more rewarding than being a student.


Yay teaching!

I hate it when that happens! Per your status post, I like gift bags for those bulky, hard to wrap items.


Like funnel cake mix. Just put it in a bag, people. :P

What happened?


We'll never know. They didn't even tell us they were turning it off. They just did it, our friend called, and they said they would turn it on later that day. And they did.

YAY IRISH BAR!

*Barbara materializes and quickly steps out of the way as the jukebox slams into existence. She carries with her a Irish Dance Manual and a list of 10F drinks. These she passes off to the barmistress to post on the back wall. Grabbing the boys, one on each arm, and bribing them with brownies, cupcakes, and strange sided dice, she persuades them to move the jukebox out of the way to the far corner. A trombone appears out of not so thin air, along with a rather battered pool table, a few pistols from a recent duel, and a barrel of frootloops.*

Hey guys! Hope everyone finds the place. It's a bit chilly in here. How about some Irish stew? And hot chocolate. ..... do we have that on the menu???

*tish waltzes in carrying huge Irish wall tapestries* I found these on our tours through Las Vegas, thought they would look perfect on these walls. Love what you have created here, raptor. Looking forward to having a pint of Guinness or Pale Ale, however must now lay my head to rest, we have been awake for 20 hours straight, and I am bleary eyed. Won in the slots today, whooo hoooo!

@ EE and Apoco..... The par taaaaahhhhh WAS for accent, and for the sounds of "aaaaaahhhhh" for being at the end of a semester.

If I needed to reply to others, I will tomorrow. I can barely keep eyes open!

I will leave yummies when I can post from PhotoBucket....the hotel wifi is very slow and it's not loading.

Night all.....sweet dreams!

So, the bar is empty and I'm tired. I just might fall asleep here, however, I have only 1/3rd left of the most awesome 4-part series ever written. I just might crack open the book tonight.

Augh!!!! I don't want it to end!!!!!

There's still "The Well of Echoes." And "The Song of the Tears."

Actually, I've been meaning to mention something about that. Although I'm sure you'll enjoy "The Well of Echoes" if/when you try it, you should prepare yourself for a very different experience from "The View from the Mirror." One of the things I like about Ian Irvine is how each of his series has a very different feel from the others (something very few authors can do), but it can be a little jarring at first. "The View from the Mirror" was sort of like Lord of the Rings in the style of its story-telling, but "The Well of Echoes" is more like BSG: a dark, gritty war story.

It's probably the weakest of the Three Worlds quartets/trilogies, but that still makes it vastly better than most books out there, and it is where he introduces his best characters. Much as I loved Karan, Llian, and Maigraith, they can't hold a candle to the sheer awesomeness of Nish, Irisis, Xervish, and Ulii.

I'm looking forward to something different. I'm glad TWOE is not the same as the VFTM. Same goes for musicians - bands that sound exactly the same record after record become boring (can you say "Boston" and "Foreigner").

Very quiet here today. Is everyone shopping? or sleeping? Hellooooooooo!

Can't speak for anyone else, but I downloaded the free trial of the new WoW expansion, so I've been running around Gilneas as a werewolf.
