    I suspected as much but simply couldn't resist.

When the bar lady proceeded to hold the glasses straight-level under the tap, and fill it from top to bottom, we lambasted her with how that would be conceived as a war crime in our country. We then taught her how to do it properly, so if you happen to find her, yes order a Guinness, otherwise stick to Ireland.And this by the way, is how you pour a pint of Guinness properly. This is not being fussy, it does not taste like Guinness if it is not done exactly this way.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O6oO4z5Q4sE
    The dad of two of my students was recently headed to Dublin for a business trip, and asked me what I thought of it. I asked him if he liked beer, and he said not really. I said, well, probably the best thing you can do in Dublin is go drink a Guinness proper. He said he doesn't like Guinness at all, and I said you haven't tried it in Ireland. Even if you don't like beer, do that.

    That was like two months ago, and he still talks about it. He brought it up last week. The dude is in love.

This derives in turn from the probable derivation of the word berth, that is, 'bearing off'. When sailors were warned to keep a wide bearing off something they were being told to make sure to maintain enough sea room from it.
    I <3 you sometimes. "Wild berth" made me laugh. What on earth has happened to Maria's English over the years??

    Hmm. To each their own.

    Apparently I don't have to worry my pretty head over the trip, everything is being taken care of.
    Still, if you have any tips, I'll be sure to check them.

    Definitely. Just don't hire Harley or they'll change the law just to fuck with her.

    The thing is I'm not sure WHICH neighbours. I only mess with those weaker than I. Wouldn't want my head bashed in on this lovely Sunday afternoon.
