Ahhh. But tell me, is she brunnette and long legged?
Well all the best Brian, just treat her right and be responsible... (God I feel so old now, 23 is a hectic age. 22 was still young enough, but 23 is too close to 24 which is official Adult Era age... )
BTW can you speak Irish? The proper stuff I mean. I am reading a book, The Story of English (not as boring as it sounds) and there is a big section on how Gaelic and the Irish have influenced English so much. But then it tells a very sad tale of how Gaelic is pretty much dead and that Irish is not faring much better.

She's a red head and she's not very tall at all. Very small actually.

I always do and I always will. I respect women way too much to treat them wrong, besides I done enough of that when I was 15 and 16.

So... I'm nearing 22 now... I have another 2 years to go before I'm entering the "Adult Era"..

I'm not fluent but I know enough of it to get along in a conversation with a fluent Gáeilge [Irish] speaker. Irish is, sadly, dying over here but there are still areas of the country [Called Gaeltéachts] where Irish is the only language spoken. About 50% of the population have a strong understanding of the language and about 20% can speak it fluently. it seems to be dying off because it's forced upon us in school from the age of 5 or 6 and at this early stage we're still learning English. It's a pity. It's not a difficult language and the government are trying to start a revival.

There is a bit of work to do. I'm actually finding it hard to find the time at the moment because of college work and work [paid work... it's a scourge but I need to do it in order to get money to live.. lol!!]. The best thing to do is talk to Chris. We've just taken on a new editor now so I don't know if there is a need for another editor soon but it's best to ask

I was in the "Department of Electronic and Communications Engineering" in Kevin street. I wrote an MS Windows 3.11 device driver for a special network board. That was in 1995.
I enjoyed Dublin really much. The most interesting of it was that I could go out in the evening alone but right before getting my first pint I was already in the middle of something. Amazing I didn't know that from Germany.

I have taken a leave of absence. As you probably noticed I haven't been editing in a while [ ]. I was talking to Chris and I told him that I'm a bit stuck for time at the moment [Very stuck actually and I couldn't guarantee that I'd be able to give a certain amount a week. ] so I decided to hang up my CP editors Pen for about two months until I get the time. I'm finished college this year [well.. 2003 ] in Feburary so it should be around then

lol. It's the usual. Will you do me a favour??? I'm still getting the notifications of the posts in the Editors Lounge. Could you let Chris know for me... I'm having some problems with my email accounts at the moment.
