So- one of the things that i want to do for 2013 is to return to ireland and uk for fun. Obviously id have to visit connemara and spend time with gramps and maybe liverpool with dad if he decides not to go to connemara at the same time but i figure if i go for ten to twelve days i can work some spaggotry in there. It would be several months from now obviously but id probably be better off planning it before the year is up.

So who would be interested in meeting up with me what general areas would work best and what times are best/worst?

I know some folks are planning on coming to the northeast as well so ill have to remain in new england during those times but ill factor that in as well.

School holidays are best for me, though this coming summer might be a bit funny, as I'm moving apartment, and looking at spending a fair bit of time in Italy.  But nothing is set in stone...yet.  Also London area is best, though if you're here in July and August (the summer holidays) it wouldn't matter too much.
"The thoughts of all men arise from the darkness. If you are the movement of your soul, and the cause of that movement precedes you, then how could you ever call your thoughts your own? How could you be anything other than a slave to the darkness that comes before? Only the Logos allows one to mitigate that slavery. Only knowing the sources of thought and action allows us to own our thoughts and our actions, to throw off the yoke of circumstance."
- R. Scott Bakker, The Darkness That Comes Before

Looks like spring break for me is march 18-24. Im a bit reluctant to go to ireland right after st pats and that is a bit sooner. But if i do go then i might start by landing in heathrow instead of shannon. I do only have classes on fri and sat so that could work if i just skip one week. And astronomy is an online course. Looks like theres nothing schoolwise between may 19 and jun 1 (which is finals and commencemnt). Otherwise july looks good. My birthay is aug 6 so that first week is probably out.

Now that i think of it though it makes more sense to fly to london first. Better to visit family when theres less money in your pocket.

I have very little planned for July/August, and cheap plane tickets to the UK/Ireland from Norway are plentiful, so if you decide to cross the pond around that time I might come over and say hi, Twid. Whether it's London, Liverpool, Dublin is not a big deal for me.

Coolness. I'll definitely be going to London- aside from it being easy for Cain, I've only been to London once, and that was only for a couple of hours before catching a bus to Liverpool. So yeah, I was in one of the coolest cities in the world and didn't see a damn thing.

Meeting any Discordians in Liverpool is probably a no-go. Dad's the only reason I'd go there (if he decided not to visit Ireland) and he's got a few screws loose.

As far as Ireland goes, as it stands, I probably won't be going to Dublin- Cork City and Galway City are more likely. Unless we have a Dubliner here?

This is one of those times where I hate the spherical nature of planet Earth.

Twid,

I'll try and talk Payne into coming to London. He hates it there. I'm ambivalent about the place myself.

I'd offer my place to crash, but I'm not sure who new housemate will be yet, the one i have lined up has a daughter who may be using the spare room for visitations and stuff.

Up? Don't you mean down? we lives onna south coast, innit.

But at my house I also make fried soda bread and fried potato bread, dude. I'll even throw in some black pudding. Eh, if you come down to Southampton, I'll make that for you anyway at some point. I'll even get some Chef's sauce. I use the good quality link sausages too.

Ulster fry in mah house (sometimes I add Scottish square sausage, for Payne and to substitute for black pudding as I DO NOT WANT!)

We do Burns Night since Payne moved to England.
