in a new york minute. imagine, if you will, a lifetime surrounded by
nothing but Americans. They're not all like the nice folks you meet

My samplings of other cultures has left me starving for *something*
besides California. Heck, even NorCal is better than SoCal, but I really
truly do want out of the US, and I've had a lifelong passion for the
Irish culture (or what I perceive to be the Irish culture in my own
fevered imagination) so I'd like to give it a shot.
