Lost in Stoneybatter

My head. My lovely, sweary head, is in ribbons. It happens.

A very public apology to Annie for missing the launch of her book but it wasn't for want of trying.

I explored the by-ways and lo-ways of Stoneybatter in an attempt to find The Joinery last evening, but no dice. If there's a 'fuck you' in here, it goes out to Google Maps and a taxi driver who kept trying to bring me to Capel Street.

"No, no, COWPER Street. COWPER... Fuck it, let me out here, I'll go by foot."

A mini-market, a row of bungalows, an angry looking Manchester United fan but no conglomerate of blogging sorts.

Bested, I ended up in Kehoes and John Mulligan and concluded this week of bar-room hopscotch with a curry chips and cheese, with a side order of spice burger.

My body is a tempest.

Does twitter not cover situations like that? I thought 'twas off Arbour Hill, some way back from the prison?

Annie said...

Oh no! I'm so sorry you got lost. It is on Arbour Hill just by the prison. Ack. I hope to see you at the next bloggy meet-up kinda thing.

Conan - I've never truly mastered Twitter. Don't know how to use it on my phone.

Annie - Ah sure, I needed the exercise anyway. Hope it went/is going well.

Well, I'll be there all weekend so if you want to call in sat or sun 12-6 would be lovely to see you. Although there won't be any free beer or cupcakes.

I may try tomorrow, stomach ailment permitting.

I'm salivating at the thought of a curry chip and spice burger combo (Candians don't know how to do drunken post pub food properly)

The Fish Bar on the Cabra Road awaits your custom with glee, Green. Be prepared for a very dodgy stomach the next day though.

Your arse is a tempest more like, eating such awful-sounding food as curry chips and cheese....

Fair point.
