There is SO MUCH STUFF going on in September that I want to go do!

The first annual Phizzfest is this-and-next week, with an art crawl, history lessons, musical and theatrical performances, outdoors yoga classes, drumming workshops, and a photography contest thing to enter your photos taken during the festival. And it’s nearly all free!

Next week is the Mountains to Sea Book Festival in Dun Laoghaire (wow, I spelled that correctly on the first go), and I have promised sarahtales that I’ll pop out. I should arrange that with her more solidly, but certainly at least one day I’ll go out and check it out.

Up through next weekend is an exhibition of sports photography at Trinity College, which I’m really looking forward to. I think we’ll probably go Tuesday, which day Ted has off.

And *starting* next weekend is the Dublin Fringe Festival, which is opening with the Wild Hunt coming to Dublin. Obviously I must go to this. Possibly with Young Indiana’s eyes and ears covered because it looks potentially pretty scary, but damn! I must go! And there’s loads of art and theatre and music and stuff going on for the two weeks of the festival, and I’d like to try to get to several of the things.

I could obviously do this full time and never go back to work. :)

Welcome back to civilisation.
Hope you get to some of them if not all.

my last trip over, I went to Dun "Leary" to go to the Hughes & Hughes bookstore that was there.. and discovered they were having some sort of event, the place was packed with a lot of folks. By the time I got a parking spot, and ravaged the bookstore, I didnt have any time to check out the other sights.

Plus chanting "wrong side of the road, wrong side of the road" while I was driving.

I can recommend The Pajama Men. I've seen them twice in Edinburgh and once in Dublin. When they were in Dublin for the first time (2003 I think) they stayed in our house for September. They're from New Mexico.

My daughter, the one who directed the radio play at P-Con VI & 7, has a show in the Fringe this year. It's "Adventures of a musical nerd".

Enjoy yourself whatever you do.

The Book Festival in Dun Laoghaire looks good. I heard an overview on the radio. The founder of Waterstones is talking at it.

35 years of drinking it, and I still have problems spelling Laphroaig!

The Wild Hunt
Wow! That looks amazing! I wonder if there'll be any video available afterward, for those of us not able to make it to Dublin...?
