working hard  

A handful of not-particularly-themed photos behind the cut…(really, I’m working hard, not procrastinating.)

Sligo countryside from our road trip a few weeks ago. I don’t often get nice landscape pictures, so I’m inflicting several on you. Or three, anyway.

This sculpture near Lough Key claims to be a “Gaelic Warrior”, but we all think it’s Queen Maebh.

And totally unrelated:

Me, hard at work. Or possibly awaiting the axe murderer creeping up on me. Mostly, probably, just trying to get a photo of my current haircut, though, because I know you’re all dying to see it.

The closet in my office is full of books I wrote. It’s ridiculous. The new mass market releases are the ones on top, but they got put back in their boxes after the picture was taken, so I could use the closet space a little more efficiently. What you can’t tell from this photo is that all three shelves are stacked double-deep and the top is triple-deep…

Lovely landskapes -- are the scattering of white dots on the top one sheep, I wonder?

They are. :)

So what does it take to live in Ireland?

An awareness that the economy is very very bad is probably the first thing you need, but second to that, a grandparent born here is extremely helpful because it means you can get citizenship. Without that, you need a job willing to sponsor you (see the economy comment) or family who will assume responsibility for you--

--although Ted just pointed out that you're Canadian. You could almost certainly get a year-long work visa here without much problem, if they're handing out work visas at all!

Well, if the whole videogame thing doesn't work out and I need a change of scenery - man, there's some beautiful scenery there.

Wow. Thems a lot of books. And Ireland looks so lovely. :)

Lovely photos. :)

Of course, the first thing entering my mind when I read that these were photos of your trip to Sligo was the tune A Trip to Sligo!

Of course it's Queen Maebh. Who else could it be?
