Today is the day. I'm looking forward to traveling with the kids. Hope we all behave ourselves. You may have noticed that I had to play some catch-up with the numbers this weekend. It is to be hoped that something nifty happens each day we're in Ireland; I should have prepared two fake narratives like the best/worst cases in John Waters's Carsick: John Waters Hitchhikes Across America—he clonks you over the head with them before trotting out the authentic if much prissier trip itself. Would that I used my time more wisely! I'll try it on the next trip.
