Busy night of hair washing, ironing and packing ahead of me tonight.
It’s the Irish Blog Awards Weekend!
I will be united with my cyber soulmate WR in her hometown for a whole two days.
I can barely sit still with excitement!
Only 130 tickets bought so far, which is a bit surprising.
Belfast = cheap alcohol and food and shopping.
Also, there is plenty of nice, cheap accommodation very close to the event if the Europa itself is a bit pricey for you!
No excuse for missing it.
It’s a once-a-year event.
Don’t be the sad blogger that won’t understand all the in-jokes on Monday morning.
D’ya know what’s great?
Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
I mean, back in the day we were all like Woooo Buffy, but now we’ve kinda forgotten about it and there’s no Buffy Quoting in conversations like there used to be.
But I started rewatching my boxsets this weekend in an attempt to forget that The Boy has abandoned me and they’re STILL amazing!
Joss Whedon’s dialogue abilities rock.
And Season 4 was incredibly underrated…I mean, Season 2 and 3 are the best ones, but while Season 4 felt a little disjointed, it had some of the best episodes in the entire show!
But this post isn’t about Buffy -it’s about Paris!
Not that there’s much to report.
It was just a relaxing trip, which was what I needed.
Some highlights include bumper cars in the Jardin des Tuileries, a sunny afternoon spent in Pere Lachaise followed by banana splits and befriending a French couple who own the best restaurant in Paris (and who also gave us free shots that tasted like Lemon sherbet).
Downlights include the crazy weather, being pervily leered at by a disturbing amount of shameless men (old, young, middle-aged and other -it was disgusting and weird) and being viciously assaulted by mosquitoes.
All in all, a very good trip!
