I just got back from spending ten days with my family in Ireland. Only a couple things I can say about it, all the beauty in that country has been sucked into the landscape, because there was not one attractive woman on the whole island (I don´t mean to insult any of you that are irish-americans, keep in mind your ancestors did leave the place for a reason), and consequently all the men have picked up homosexual tendancies.. they all dance with each other in these bizarre rituals I didn´t quite understand. For example, I was at a bar with two of my cousins and next to us was a group of irish dudes (about 10) sitting in a circle. One dude would be up and dancing by himself, and then the song would end (usually usher or outkast) and the dude would sit down, and the guy next to him would stand up and start dancing. After about three songs they got antsy I guess, so two of them got up and started dancing together (all dudes keep in mind), this wasn´t a strange sight i later came to realize.
So now a story of something that happened to me at a pub one night:
I´m at this pub in Killkenny, Ireland with two of my cousins, Papu and the extreme German stereotype Zeverine. This was a pub we had been advised by the lady at the hotel not to go to, so of course it ended up being the best one. My cousin tells me to find us a place to sit, so I´m walking ahead and they´re following behind me. Suddenly this irish song comes on and gets everyone really excited and they all start jumping around and dancing, drinks are spilling on me and i bail out next to this couch.. I turn around and my cousins had left me like 20 feet back, i just hadn´t noticed. So now I´m stuck here because theres no way I´m going to make it back while this song is playing. I turn to my left and theres this 60 year old woman sitting there by herself, so I nod politely... I wait another minute and then it dawns on me how strange it is that this old woman is here, so I do sort of a delayed double take. This time she scoots over to me and grabs my wrist, i think shes looking for the time so I tell her that i don´t have a watch and pull my wrist back... then she gets up and pulls me away and all of a sudden i´m dancing with this woman.. I was kind of shocked and all i could do was laugh... i guess she thought i was just having fun or something because now she´s forcibly pulling off my jacket.. so i say "OK OK!! calm down!" and pull it off the rest of the way and she throws it on the couch... im not really sure what to do so i keep dancing with her and im just laughing in her face... Now the song ends and she grabs my wrist again (she was pretty strong for an old lady) and tries to pull me outside with her! (turns out she was interested in more than just dancing) That was when I called it quits, I grabbed my arm back got a hold of my jacket, and ran through the crouds back to my cousins.. i spent the next half hour hiding from the woman until we finally left...
