This morning I am mostly feeling full of oddly colored snot and the urge to be violently ill. Typically these came over me during the long long taxi trip to the datacentre this morning but considering I can spend most of today asleep and no one will know or care, it's not so bad.

Greg is moving his stuff out today and in the absence of anyone wanting to move in, myself and metalrabbit (well, mainly me) are looking at new places to live, I've got (so far) one place to look at this evening and another for tomorrow (tomorrow's one sounds mind blowingly cool). I'm not getting very serious with the searching just yet since most places want you to start the lease immediately and our current one doesn't expire until the 17th of june.
The really cool bit about all this is that I get to do most of the packing fun myself since metalrabbit is a hundred miles away. Go team me!!

In other news, I am going mildly insane from boredom out here, I'm finishing at 4:30 this afternoon to view a place and then I suspect I'm going back to the house for piece, quiet and theraputic model painting.

no, moving heap big pain.

We're not moving far with any luck, just to a one bedroom place. With luck we'll have metalrabbit's dad with a van to help with the actual moving thing (fingers crossed) and it's really just the packing that'll be a pain. Any ideas where I could get those decent sized cardboard moving boxes that you construct yourself?

that would rock on both counts. Once greg has all his gear gone and I have space for them I'll grab them from you.

I have an extensive list of demands from the rabbit actually, and I think as long as it "feels cool" it should be okay. Like I said though, the plan is to stay within D4 itself to minimise the pain of moving. The place I'm looking at tonight is about three minutes from the place we're in now and the one for tomorrow night is actually at the back gate of UCD, so nothing so far is moving us far away.

Back gate of UCD? What's the address?

But it's in the whiteoaks or something, beside the mosque.

No, they don't, certainly not in the morning. They aren't allowed because of potential noise polution and all that. I'm very, very close indeed to that area of the world, so that'd be cool. Oh, and I've never heard a call from the mosque.

I have - I heard one a few weeks ago when I was in Cape Town - they're actually quite beautiful, not something I would term "noise pollution"....so if they do actually make them, personally, I wouldn't be too upset.

Sorry, I haven't heard one live, but I've heard recordings/broadcasts from mosques. I actually meant that I'd never heard one from Clonskeagh. And yes, I wouldn't consider it noise pollution either, but hence the quote marks in my original comment.

socmot: Re: don't have it to hand

Sorry, I didn't see the quote marks or your wording "the mosque" - I read it as "a mosque"....

I really should have known better and kept schtum given the state of my eyes...it's been one of those days where staring at the screen so long means you miss out on little things. Apologies for sounding a bit snotty / show-offish / whatever I was...
