Ok, first the Eason’s site gave no indication the Gaiman thing was a ticketed event (I checked about five times before I left for South Carolina), and now it says that it is, and that the tickets are sold out. Ok, well, slovobooks/Pádraig is a hero of the revolution and has an extra ticket. But also, the Eason’s site had indicated the thing was at 6 or 6:30, and now says it’s at 7, and it turns out I was wrong about when buses leave: I thought there was a quite late bus that left at 9 and went through Longford around 11, but if there was, maybe it was a summer route or something, because the last one I can get on to get back to Longford is at seven. And I’m afraid I’ve just got too much *shit* to do to lose all of today and, realistically, all of tomorrow to going in to Dublin tonight and travelling back tomorrow.


Well, I guess that puts paid to my little vacation here. :p

:( Irish bus systems suck the big one. Still it could be worse: you could have used their helpful phoneline journey planner and found yourself stranded in the arse-end of nowhere because your bus didn't exist. Are you still sworn off sweet things? Because if not then I would prescribe chocolate.

*pouts on your behalf*

"Well, shit" is definitely about all that can be said here. That and "get your heads out of your asses and get this thing organized better!"

::is sad::

disappointed for you and for me.

Still will see you in Dublin for comic con right?

Do you want me to get you a personalised signed copy of book? I will be picking up several. I will swap it for which ever of your books I don't have yet..

Oh! That would be lovely, in fact, if you wanted to do that! Thank you!

Ted and I *will* be at DCC, come hell or high water. We're really looking forward to it. *hugs lots*!

Well assuming eason's lets me - and I hope having a personal connection like padraig present might help - I will be getting at least 4 personalised signed copies for people, not including me.

Well, if they say no, it's no big deal to me. But it'd be lovely if you can! :)

Oh, Kit, that blows. I'm so sorry.

Ah poo. I hate the crap public transport in this country that only give ammunition to gas-burning idiots who insist on keeping their SUVs.

*hugs* Ask irishkate to squeeze Neil extra-hard just for you.

Well, that's poop.

We're just in from it, and I hate to tell you that it really was very good. I did the interview earlier, and managed to mention Chance in relation to CBLDF, which he was already familiar with, it seems, largely due to irishkate.

You are both angels among men, and I am both envious and grateful as hell. :)
