Haven't bought my tickets yet (yes they're bloody expensive but hey, it's a whole lot of good bands playing, think of it as paying 5, 10 euro per band or something) but I'm game!


And Lazy lazy lazyboy... when you coming dear?

WitNNess Rosa!! Damn Guinness sponsored mis-spelt wonderful weekend! You going
too?? I'd say you'll be ok getting the tickets nearer the date. Me and a friend just got ours today to make sure! No way am I missing it, all my favourite bands bar U2 and my favourite drink! But my mates are all cashless at the mo too so they asked and saleswoman said there's a fair few left. But don't leave it too late!

And when am I coming......well, depends on the date of the big piss-up I guess! Hey Rosa, you got some floor space I could borrow???

Anyone wanna take the bull by the horns and sort out this piss-up? It's gonna be tricky keeping everybody happy..

WitNNess, yeah!!! lol sorry brian I knew the mis-pelt thing, just can't type properly. I remember last year before Xmas there was this Witness party at the Ambassador with Pulp headlining (they were fecking awsome btw) and Jarvis said the name should be wittnnesh, something about getting pissed and starting witnnessssssshing your own shoes... lmao at that one.

And yes, there's always some floor space at my place! lol we've been organizing some funny parties lately (ask catdubh, zoomII...) and I'm getting used to wake up in the morning and notice a few people scattered all over the living room

As for the piss-up... yeah yeah yeah let's get things organized!

Diemen- Me? Stalk the band? Never... *lol* No, seriously though...although I obviously *thought* about U2 when I was planning this, I didn't actually realize that I might meet them there until the reports from LemonBoy and Mullen-Girl started coming in last week.

Desert Rose: I'll email you soon! I just got home from a trip to NYC last night, I'm catching up on everything.

lazyboy, thanks again for the Witnness info. I'm getting really interested in going, I'm just going to have to pay for my plane ticket and see how much is left over, then I'll make final decisions. :-)

Ally & everyone else: yes! we must meet up for a piss up (is that a noun or a verb? *lol*), the 12th is good for me, although I'll be recovering from jet lag... but what better way to recover than getting exremely drunk? I'm pretty flexible too, though.

Ok, peeps, let's get this piss up organized! since it looks like most, if not all, of us are doing Witness, perhaps the 12th is a bit crazy. hmmmm... Anyone have any other suggestions for dates? Perhaps we could do it the thursday before witnness (the 11th), but i think that's the day Zoogrl arrives, so that might not work, b/c we *definitely* need to include her... well, i guess we could always do TWO piss ups, that way everyone who wants to should be able to attend...

suggestion: we could do one for the 12th (or sometime around then), and also perhaps one a little earlier in the summer. my friends and i will be getting there on june 22nd, and so we'll be very excited to meet other people in dublin! would anyone be up for a gathering in say late june AS WELL as the one that ZooGrl has organized for around july 12th?

i am so looking forward to meeting you all! and glad that you all like to party as well!! (woohoo, Desert Rose!!)

and btw, lazy, Day 2 KICKS ARSE!!! you know it! just wait till you see gwen and no doubt, then oasis, basement jaxx, starsailor... *swoon* cannot wait!!

Ahhhh! You've all convinced me, I'm gonna go to Witnness... I'm going to be broke but I think it's worth it.
Mmm, Ally, good suggestion about two piss ups (lol-- this is becoming my favorite word)-- while I could do it July 11th I'm probably going to be so jet lagged that I'd fall asleep before consuming any alcohol!! Maybe a few highly caffinated Irish coffees would be in order ;-) But really, I'd like to meet you all so whatever day is best is good for me. Is the 12th ok or did we establish that it didn't work for anyone?


Augh... I started cleaning my room today, I'm not going to be moving my furniture but all my personal stuff has to go when I leave and I can't believe how much stuff I've accumulated here since last August. Moving is going to be a big job, grr.

BTW I've been meaning to email everyone personally, I'm still in the process of unpacking from my trip last weekend to NYC (which as I mentioned, turned into a full-scale cleaning operation); I will email you all soon!

Late june is good for me too. Just let me know and I will make sure to have arrived in time.

I will probably do Witnness too.

You should know that it feels SOOOO good to be this flexible. Don't know when that happened last, if it ever has happened. Life is just a long list of plans, plans, plans and now I have nothing.... LOL

And Hay, I know the feeling about cleaning and packing. Remember I have my life spread in TWO apartments and one store and I have to move my furniture too... Oh my gosh... and sell my car and, and, and... Thank God everything is arranged with my horse so I can relax on that part.

Hi Zoo Girl,
I'm going to be in Dublin from Aug 3 thru 10. I can't wait to go! It would be nice to meet some U2 fans in the city.

Oh, can anyone recommend a good book about modern day Ireland?
