I Got Two Turntables and a Microphone.

Coadster with her cousin on Christmas.

So, I was talking to Coadster on the phone the other night about her trip to London that is coming up in March. We were talking about Passports and currency exchanges and she was telling me she was going to go to Paris for a day and a night of the trip and then to Dublin for St Patrick's Day.

Having never been to Europe, I have no idea if every country uses the same currency or not.

Me: Well, before you go, make sure you know what currency every place you're going takes. You'd hate to get to Dublin on St Paddy's day and not have the right kind of money...

Coadster: Are you kidding? I'm going to save my money so I can spend all of it in Dublin on alcohol.

Me: You are not going to spend all of your money on alcohol in Dublin...

The Guy was sitting next to me and started laughing and gave Coadster the thumbs-up with both hands through the phone.

Me: Great. You two aren't even in the same town and you're STILL flipping me shit in unison...

I've never been to Europe either, but I'd love to go someday - especially to England, Ireland and Scotland.

Going to a bar in Dublin on St. Patrick's Day sounds wild and a little intimidating! :)

They still use the pound in England and the euro in paris.
Wow what a wonderful trip. Guiness in Dublin is a dream of mine!

Ha! That's funny. We knew a kid who went to Ireland and found that at 16 he could drink, so he drank as much as he could. Unfortunately no one told him that the beer there has a higher alcohol content. He said he was sick for two days after. =;]
