Giving up

Today, a very sad thing happened. Well, it was sad for me. I was in the National Library studying when this business-suited woman came in and KISSED George and I realised in one fell swoop that he was Not For Me. He's a married man! Well, he was always too old for me I guess. But now I don't just not have a boyfriend, I don't even have a crush on anyone!

Well, classes are about to start so perhaps I can form an unsuitable attachment to someone in TCD instead. Just today, I was on my way to the library there (yes, I have been studying hard) when I practically tripped over this god-like Japanese tourist on his way to see the Book of Kells. So you see, there are handsome men in every walk of life, not just in surprisingly sexy corduroy trousers in ancient libraries.

Anyway, in case you are wondering why I am so upbeat despite the whole George debacle, the reason is this: Today, I had a meeting with Dublin Tourism . As you know, I am not getting paid for this blog, but there are some perks. After buying me breakfast at the in-house cafe (not bad, and I do like to eat in converted churches) The lady handed me an envelope full of "perks" in the form of free tickets to things they want me to go to so that I can write about them here. I don't have to LIKE them but I do have to go. Or heck, I don't HAVE to go but I will somehow find time. There's much-sought after tickets to a hurley match in Croke Park (although I will have to sit next to the Chief Exec of Dublin Tourism whom I don't know so hopefully he won't want to engage me too much in conversation) (unless he is a youngish, dashing sort of the type I could become unsuitably obsessed with) (just kidding). There are tickets to various Fringe Festival events, which is totally cool as I was going to go anyway. There are also a number of things I don't know what to do with, like tickets to the zoo . So mission for tonight? I'm gonna pore through the tickets and see what I want to do, and what I don't. Exciting!
