Ok, so I went to the Irish festival since well, im Irish. Now, i havent been in a few years and last I remember it was the North Texas Irish Music Festival. Apparently not anymore.

I used to go to have some drinks, eat some food, and listen to music. I supposed you can still do that, but now you have to wade through armies of Ren Faire people, boothes selling kilts, corny new age hippy crap, and sword shops.

A few music vendors, some celtic inspired art and a ton of bands, thats what it should be. Not a ren faire. Jesus h Christ, what the hell do people dressed up like knights, medieval royalty, and wizards have to do with Ireland. For fucks sake I grew up there and go back almost yearly and, aside from museums, never saw a knight. Its 2006 not 1006.

It needs to be what it was, music. Not another excuse for rennies to dress up and play middle ages.

Anyway, I did see a few good bands, had some food, and got drunk.

I changed my mind about school, I need to finish my ccie first. I'm good at multitasking, but I not that good. Probably put it off until fall, that should give me enough time to study and do the lab work.

Its funny to see peoples reactions, especially back home, when they learn I am a Irish citizen. I have little/no accent anymore.

I get to work, bright and early. Swipe card doesnt work at any of the doors I have to get through, which is 3. Someone put the one adult content channels on one of the main monitoring screens, which was funny, but we still got yelled at. Someone broke the card reader into the server room. Someone on the weekend shift had to sit at my desk because their computer was being replaced. I have everything in its place and the 2 21" flatscreen monitors are adjusted to my eyes, etc. Everything was moved and my keyboard had potato chip slime all over it....Ive only been at this new position for 3 weeks and already need a vacation.

Anyway, next few months are exciting.

Got my girlfriends birthday dinner at Melting Pot

Then the North Texas Irish Fest which is always a good time.

I also have a bunch of friends that have birthdays in March, so we are having a group birthday party on the 25th at my place. Should be fun.

Ive also been gearing up for Convergence 12 Which should be alot of fun. Been looking fowarded to getting back down to NOLA.
