ireland!

hey, last time I was in ireland I was, according to my mom, quite sick and we just kind of hung out while I crapped my pants and acted like sick two year olds act. This time, I'm also about to crap my pants, but it's mostly because of what's known here on the emerald isle as 'glee'. turns out, leprechauns are plentiful and pots of gold are everywhere. The guinness is, in fact, much tastier than it is everywhere else and uh, what else? Good soundguys and polite people here in Belfast, and actually, a little bit of good mexican food, which, well...is surprising to put it mildly. Tomorrow's the last day of our wild adventure. Last night we drove straight from Kingston to the Hollyhead ferry (six hours) then took the ferry to dublin (three hours) and then drove another three hours with Toby, drunk on Buckfast, berating us all the while. there were eleven of us in the van. everyone was farting. Not a lot of sleep. I feel like a hobo and smell like one too (to the tune of 'happy birthday' [alternate version]).
What else? I dunno. We got a little bit of Jez Courdelle last night and we had the best show of the tour for sure. Thanks England and Scotland and Wales! You are all the best! We'll see you next time. Now, it's ireland's turn and I've gotta go shake the promoter here down for a little more of his gold, so I'll say goodnight to y'all.

Thanks for making my days suck a little less.

Mexican food in Ireland huh, my people get around. Cool

Sean said...

so, anyone have any drink combinations that SOUND gross but end up being surprisingly good?

My drink of choice for the night is Captain Morgans mixed with A&W cream soda.

so damn good (if you like cream soda, I assume).

Sean, I like JD (or any kind of whiskey, really) with root beer. I've had people tell me it tastes like listerine and I should just drink that instead, but those people are WRONG. It tastes magical.

Love you, too!

This has nothing to do with your tour. This has everything to do with the Juggalo News Network.

Sean said...

hmmmm root beer.... I should try that...

On a related note:
Id imagine regular beer would taste awful mixed into root beer.

Although I dunno why anyone would mix beer with anything...

Saturday post? Last time this happened it was the day of the 10th anniversary show. I think you berated us and told us to come see you play live... This time talk of crapping pants. Just as good!

Sean said...

I agree with Jake.

Thing that sounds like a terrible idea but actually isn't: Beer Floats.
With Yuengling Lager its actually decent. Someone got drunk once and did it and every in a while we will do it again.

Phil said...

you didn't hsve to shake me down for anything dude! but good use of the pot of gold angle!, paid Toby as you were pretty damn wasted! ;)

Owner Operator said...

jacks and pineapple juice. sooooo awesome...

Karen Kitten Cupcake Sweet said...

Beer is great when mixed with lots of things!
My favorite is beer and clamato juice... which i call the bearded clam..
but beer is also good mixed with cider or orange juice! delish!

Sean said...

ughhhhhhhhhh beer and clamato sounds like period blood.

Robb said...

let's be honest; there's really no scenario in which mixing beer with anything is anything short of asinine

@Sean
whiskey (I prefer beam) and mt. dew is pretty good. Most people don't believe me. But I found out mt dew was actually produced by pepesi to mix with whiskey and moonshine. Giver er a try

this is something... i don't know what...

Drunken Acorn said...

You should never ever mix whiskey with anything, But I mix beer with other beer. Mix Bud Light and Corona, it taste good.

Zachary Golden said...

The Dublin show was too good.

Jake Regier said...

There's a Budweiser/Clamato mix drink already. It comes in a pint can, I believe, and it sucks ass.
