It's nice to leave Athlone everywhile and get back to the "big shmoke". Here's what I did last Sunday.
My sister and I attended the "Call A Spade A Spade" demonstration. This was to show solidarity with Rory O'Neill and to oppose homophobia.
We estimated the crowd to be a few hundred but there were reports online of over a thousand. It it had been a 'pro-life' rally the estimates would probably have been in the tens of thousands, lol!
Senator Norris gave a really motivational speech which got the crowd whooping and cheering. He thoroughly is an amazing public speaker.
We went to Synnotts for one drink and to watch the rugby. I had a vodka with diet coke but Enid mixed her vodka with tonic water because she's off artificial sweeteners. I couldn't do that!!
We left Synnotts pretty quickly because the vibe wasn't great and our view wasn't good either.
We took a quick trip to Starbucks, before which Enid was panicking because she had no cream to put in her coffee. Luckily I remembered that I had read online about people ordering butter in Starbucks to bulletproof their coffee. We got two pats of butter each, it was lovely and creamy :)
Enid the imposter used my name to order the coffees. She's just jealous ;)
I then popped home for a bit to see my parents. I randomly decided to ask my dad for a lend of a ukulele so I one here in Athlone with me. I'm already addicted, it's so easy to learn to play and sounds so cute! It's ruingng my nails though- I always need my nails to be perfectly manicured!!
