For those of you who don't know yet, I'm leaving for Dublin early Friday evening and not coming back until the 8th. We're staying at what is allegedly the best hotel in Ireland, so even though bringing a laptop isn't really worth the trouble (even though the hotel apparently provides electrical adaptors), I'm sure I'll be able to hop online occasionally from the business center or something. I don't expect to be doing that often, though. Because there are better things to do in Dublin.
Which brings me to my main point: what should I do in Dublin? I had lots of things in mind to do in London when I went there, but I don't really know what the interesting things to see in Dublin are. Help me out!
I also need to figure out what I'm bringing along to read. I was going to finish the Fruits Basket I have out from the library, then get another five or six volumes, but the seventh volume--which I was reading--has mysteriously vanished on me. Dammit. I'll keep looking, but in the meanwhile, I've set aside the first two volumes of Tokyo Babylon (the only ones I have) to take to Ireland. If I can find the second volume of Blade of the Immortal, I'll also take volumes 2-5 of that (I just finished the first volume). I might also bring some Chrono Crusade, but I should also use the opportunity to catch up on some novel-reading. Possibly that new-ish Emma Bull book, Territory, and The Intelligencer, which is historical fiction about Christopher Marlowe that I've been meaning to read for years. And maybe the last Takeshi Kovacs book, although I hesitate to finish them.
