since i'm doing so much traveling, and it's important to look wealthy when one is on the road:

i decided to get an ipad. to be fair, i actually just didn't want to drag my work and personal computers with me as i traverse the planet:

as luck would have it, i had enough credit card points to get it for free:

 but--it turns out--the only thing i want to use it for is to play plants vs. zombies 2:

and now i have a way to play it wherever i am:

but, it's not all good luck. i've become addicted, and now i can't go to sleep without seeing zombies, and i don't have enough plants in my home to protect me:

Heckler Part II

in my rush to fame--as is so often the case--i didn't care who i stepped on along the way:

some things were written, some comments cut off:

relationships were irreparably damaged and friendship bracelets were burned:

to mr. konigsberg i can only say one thing: you won't be easy to replace, but once my erin-is-famous entourage is up and running, i'm hoping that these painful memories will fade....

No, YOU Shut Up!

well, it's happened, i've got a heckler:

why is that good luck? because it means...


ok, so the heckler may or may not be my brother, who may or may not be trying to help me break into the world of fame, but still!

Travel (b)Log Entry 4

back in dublin, and this time, i'm staying in a self-accommodation place. it's nice that i don't have to go out for every meal:

 even if i have to go up a million flights of stairs to get to my room:

unfortunately, there is a weird smell emanating from the shower drain:

luckily, something similar happened to my friend jeremiah when he lived in turkey:

so i knew what to do about it

this is not a drill, people, it's not a drill:

c.b. and i are getting married! i have a ring--as a contractual obligation--to prove it:

given this new turn of events, i think cabana boy is just not the appropriate name for him anymore, and i need your help figuring out a new one. if we want to be annoying, we could go with "my fiance" ala seinfeld:

but we'd just have to change it again the next time our facebook status changes*:


*i don't have a facebook page. but my blog does!
