A Nation Once Again: One Country Unites to Piss Lucy Off

IRELAND IS WORKING AS ONE COMBINED UNIT TO RUIN MY ITALY BUZZ. IT WILL NOT WORK. I SHALL OVERCOME.


Anyway. I'm not going to go on (much) about Italy, in case you were worried. I have SOME respect for other people. Instead I will dole out tiny anecdotes, in glistening, sun-shiney nuggets that offer wee tasters of the trip. Mar shampla, on Friday morning we had a champagne brunch on our terrace. In fact, EVERY morning. Over-looking the Mediterranean. Then I went for a walk on the beach and poked strange looking things in rock pools with a stick. Then I went for a run. For a mile and a half. On pale beige semi-firm sand, weaving in out of the water in my bare feet. Me. Running.

I'm going to let you take a minute to fathom how amazing this fact actually is.

That's how I spent the past four days. Weaving from champagne bottles to dinner tables to the beach. Constantly half-cut and half-dressed and wholly giddy on pleasurable things.

You are excused to vomit your envy away from the computer.

Man, my mouth is really freakin numb. I feel like my bottom lip is twice it's normal size but it looks the same. Happy drugs rock. Getting your wisdom teeth out is a real buzz, I recommend it.

Stop enjoying the buzz - that's a crime against society!

It's much more socially acceptable to just wallow in the pain and misery.

Im pretty sure "Mar Shampla" is my thing. I would recommend you don't use it unless the surroundin words are as Gaeilge, or else you will be hearing from my people.
