Short break in rain

But it will be back. Seriously I'm not sure how this country is not underwater yet. I'm doing essays and studying now, so not a lot of time to type or edit, I'll try to make up for it next Tuesday, and I'll have plenty of time while travelling next Saturday, although I'm not sure I'll have a lot of energy as I get to be up for the 5:30 train. And then like 20 hours of travelling, it ought to be fun. But at the end there're people to carry my luggage for me, and that makes me happy. Also no cobble stones to roll over. Cobble stones are pretty, but not very fun with rolly luggage, or when wearing heels. And candy canes and malls, okay the things I miss are a little weird, but you would miss malls too if you had to go out in the rain repeatedly since all the stores are separate. I managed to get all my shopping done and most of the way up hill during a break in the rain on Saturday, so that was good. Hopefully I can make it home in a break today. And maybe some day in the next couple of weeks it will stop raining for more than an hour and I can get my Cork pictures.

Syd,
Sure wish you could bring some of that rain and fog back with you. You can go to all the malls in town when you get back. Ahhh, such joy! No parking spaces, mobs in the malls, people stepping on your toes, surley clerks who wish you would pay the money and get out of the way. What great fun! Also, sampling fudge at the fudge place, little kids standing in line waiting to see Santa, Christmas elevator music. Happiness comes in so many forms. We Love You

Ready for the Firefly marathon?!
I'll be off work Dec. 21 and 22. Before then, I have finals and after Christmas, boss hasn't posted my schedule yet.
