What was her bloody name again?

...her name was Lola, she was a show-girl...

Anyway, Dublin... I like Dublin, I like Dublin a lot. I can't think of a better place to spend a couple of days with good pals, rolling around Temple Bar* and in and out some pretty bloody fantastic pubs (with some great live music). (*Temple Bar is the area just north & west of the Liffey river for a few blocks - if you love pubs, go there... NOW!)

We had a trip up to Malahide up on the coast on the Sunday and that was nice, if a little sleepy and quiet (particularly so after Temple Bar) and later we returned (for the 3rd night running!) to the Dame Tavern on Dame Lane (just outside Temple Bar) for some truly great acoustic music (Blues, Floyd, Paul Weller etc) featuring an insanely good guitarist - oh and the Guinness and Jamesons' Whisky weren't bad either - just a pity that my intake/fun-fuel was somewhat restricted.

We got back today (Monday) and a mad rush saw me collecting the excitable Herbie from my mums and dashing to the station to meet up with Neil South (T17's resident technical-art manager) to go to London for the careers fair which is in Piccadilly tomorrow.

Can you smell the chicken from Nandos?

Some good news is that Nando's restaurant has opened in Wakefield, near the Cinema/Pizza hut - and very good/reasonable it is too. If you like chicken, preferably hot & spicey, get your arse down there!
