I am *either*...  
I am *either* going to get on a train and go to Belfast tomorrow to watch Common Rotation and then spend a couple of days at a hotel, writing, before returning to Cobh, *or* I am going to get on a train and go into Cork tomorrow and spend three days at a hotel, writing, before returning to Cobh. In the grand scheme of things, the Belfast thing obviously seems like more fun, but right now, *jeez* it seems like a lot of effort. (OTOH, it would get me up and out of the house early, and provide me with an entire day of writing on the train, which going to Cork wouldn't.) Where are people from the Republic who are going to this thing staying, anyway? I have no idea what hotels or whatever are near the venue. (This is Kit, Totally Unprepared.)

Help me, LJ-wan Kanobi! You're my only hope!

Belfast or Cork?


One way or another, though, I'll be gone over the weekend, buried in a hotel room somewhere and writing my little brain out. I find I have to do this sometimes, go shut myself away from the world and just work for a few days. Someday maybe I'll own several acres and be able to put an office on the far side of the land from the house, so I can just go to work and not be tempted by the evils of online interaction, but until that day arrives, going to a hotel has to do the trick. I shall take the Dana, which has been christened Indexus, order room service, and write my leetle feengers off!

Also, I made banana nut muffins for breakfasty. Yummy. :)

Wot, no ticky-box? A poll's no fun without the ticky.

My suspicion, by the way, is that LJ will always send you to the fun; which is, of course, why you ask it.

It's Friday. Have you remembered the farmers' market? I have mutton and squash and pork pie and sausages and eggs; I am fettled for the month.

The Northern Ireland Tourist Board office in Dublin should be able to help you.

Telephone numbers are:

Haven't visited either, though I did make it across the pond to Glasgow and Edinburgh last year when Worldcon was running in Scotland. Not the same thing, but if I had a choice I'd opt for Belfast because of the train time and early mornings.

Common Rotation are playing up here tonight, not tomorrow!

If you can still make it up, your best bet would be places like the Wellington Park Hotel, Malone Lodge or Benedicts. Contact details are on the Mecon website here. :)

Mmmmmm, banananana nut muffins... :)

Re: Tomorrow?
Oh, fucking hell. Somehow I had it in my head that the 6th was a Saturday. *Bugger*.

You must go see Common Rotation, and you must tell Adam and Eric that I say hello. (:

The Cork-To-Cork contract gets you 62M euros when playing EuroRails, so Cork gets my vote. Also, fewer explosions.
