|hubs + Ilsa at All Hallows College|
Today Ilsa arrived in Dublin for her visit! After finding her at the glorious new Terminal 2, we immediately hopped on a bus into town from the airport. On the way to drop off (set down) her bag at our flat, a scumbag on the quays shouted that she was a beautiful girl. After running inside quickly, we hopped back on the bus to meet hubs as he finished his exams. Hubby is in the middle of first semester exams and gets out around noon or half twelve on test days. Ilsa and I met him at the Cat & Cage pub in Drumcondra for her first pint. We enjoyed a Smithwicks and some greasy pub food and sat around talking to hubs and his classmates. I heard the Irish accent as if it were still a novelty. The Irish accent is very pleasing to the ear and I hope Ilsa liked it as much as I did that afternoon.
After hubs gave us a tour of the college, we got caught in a torrential downpour, hid from the rain inside a Tesco, and took the bus home--absolutely soaked to the skin. On the way home, a scary bloke on the bus was pounding on the windows, muttering to himself that he was 'mad crazy with a little bit of fruitcake', and trying to talk to us. Welcome to Dublin!
