Tourist History

This is more of a plug so that you lovely people will come visit me and wylie in out mansion.

We’ll make you green curry and brownies and feed you with good coffee and have you beaten at scrabble by Martha. It’s great.

Wee phil (Phildemort/Milhaus/Philly-O-Fish) was the first person to make it down and stay in our B&B. This seems only fair seeing as he and the office did some of the work on the house.

We took a day (well more of an afternoon) out in Dublin today and made an appearance at the Chester Beatty Library. Wylie threatened to take me here on our second date and I was like “no way i’m not going on a date with a hot chick to a library” so we went to see the Bodies exhibition instead.

It’s free. I like free stuff like this, I need a good list of free things to do in Dublin if someone wants to make me one.

The current big exhibit is about the imperial Mughal albums which you all know lots about. Think Taj Mahal time.
