I did it! I threw caution to the winds, and I booked plane tickets to Cork for the Ireland Sacred Harp Convention! Excitement!

On account of a) lack of singings in Cambridge, and b) the expense and c) the lousy timing of the London singings relative to train trips to and from Cambridge, I haven't managed to get to a singing since August, and I've missed it terribly. Well, no more! I am going to Cork, and I am going to sing. Especially since this is a singing that I've been told about since it started, and I could never afford to travel from Chicago. Well, I can afford to travel from Cambridge. It's not exactly the cheapest thing I could do, but in the end, I can afford it, and I'd feel horrible if I didn't go, so I'm going.

It also struck me that, if you're not too totaled after work, we could meet on Saturday night for drinks or dinner or something in the city, if that's not too inconvenient for you.

Well, I'm still laughing at the suggestion to bring my parents to the singing. That's not going to happen, I'm afraid!

Saturday night might be a better bet. I defo can't let you come and go without meeting up. If only we'd more notice. I'd have arranged something and could have given you a bed.

Ah, their loss!

I'd love it if Saturday night could work! There'll be a social, but I'd much rather hang out with you, and I'm sure there's a pub somewhere in the middle of the city where we could at least grab a quick drink.

I have to go dancing now, but let's talk further about this. Let's do it over e-mail, and we'll figure out how to be in touch once I'm in Cork.

Sorry about the short notice, but I hadn't really known when the Ireland Convention was, just that it was in "early March." It turns out to be "First Sunday in March and the Saturday before," which is earlier than I thought, so I was scrambling a bit myself to get the arrangements made. But the upside is that now I know, so I'll be able to prepare better for next year, and we might be able to arrange a real trip.
