Whole lotta labia.
Home again home again. The trip was wonderful and I have a few great pictures but really it was worth going just to have the memories.

Getting home was not particularly smooth or easy.. the rain in Ireland made driving to the airport hard. The hangover made it harder. The flight from Shannon to Boston was rocky enough that I had to make use of the wee little baggie in the seat pocket in front of me.

It wasn't helped by how hot the plane was and that the only thing left on the in-flight entertainment was some special on how to make cassoulet. Want to know what doesn't help airsickness? The phrase "confit of duck." Pinky swear.

The guy next to me was like "*bzuh?*" and I just turned to him and said "I'm so sorry." He was very nice about it, all things considered.

We got in to Boston early enough that they could put me on an earlier shuttle. I jumped on it. The truth is that I was terrified to drive home in the dark. I was so exhausted I worried that I'd do something stupid. I got back on the ground in DC at 8 and the fantastically gorgeously wonderful Lala drove me to my car. And then she drove me to the gas station after I realized that my battery was dead. And then she helped me run the jump box. Lala wins at "foul weather friend."

I ended up crawling into bed at 11:30. ST was there and that was just the tops. And now? Now I'm so tired I'm going to conk out at my desk, but I'm back and I'm safe and my car is happy again. Things are not so bad.

So. What did I miss?


OMG FIC RECS NOW!

Lizzies! I'm so sorry about your sunburn! I would volunteer to rub things into your j-lo, but then we'd neither of us get any work done.

Look, I got Melly hugs and Malteasers out of the deal so all in all, I think I came out on top. Also, there were sparks! Ooh, shiny!

I am glad you got home safe! I fretted. Also, I can't wait to see picshures!

You poor little thing! I've always wondered about that little bag, i.e. is it up to the task it is assigned? Would I be? Unknown. Hopefully never to find out firsthand!!

Hot + bumpy = so. not. good.

Poor little thing!! Welcome back.

Oh Molly. :) *twirls* Molly? Saturday night Caitlin and I went out for what we thought was going to be traditional Irish music and instead we listened to some nice Irish boy do covers of Bon Jovi and U2. I kept wanting to pet him because he was so wee and yet so talented.

Also, did you have a good Mother's Day?

Did you bring him home? Cute Irish boys are considered carry-on by most airlines.

And yes! Jon and Zack bought me a bike! And a helmet with butterflies on it. There shall be pictures once I add butterfly stickers to the bike itself. :D
