Dear Albuquerque - 1370°C

Thank you for so easily and quickly accepting me back into the fold as if i'd never been gone. Thank you to those who i never even knew before for making me feel welcome. But please forgive me if, for awhile, i'm just sad you're not Dublin; i know it's a faux pas, i know i shouldn't be thinking of one place when i'm in another.

Tonight was nice. Catching up (as well as is possible in a loud place) with old friends, meeting new ones, being embarassed completely by hacked, dancing a lot, having fun.

Yet...part of me simply expected nephster13 and endon_neu to be djing, for gothicfurby to be hiding on the couch behind the decks, for blaquewraith to be taking photos, for JY to be lurking about, for ickle_tayto and blackberry_roan to be there to dance and for me to lean on. For solo_beckett to be in some fabulous outfit, and even for people i didn't much care for to be annoying and drama-causing.

I left early. This is why. Too much missing. I *think* it will get better with time. Perhaps it's that my family is in Albuquerque while my heart is in Dublin? I don't know.

And for those of you who talked to me for any length tonight, i'm sure i told you all about the wonderful Dublin folk who will be coming to visit this year. You Dubliners, don't prove me wrong. I'd love to have you, and there are folk here dying to meet you already.

Squooor! ;) Yeah, i've already got myself a sunburn (just on the one side though) from driving out here. Anytime between now and about May should be nice-ish though. It's already started to get nice and cool here.

Albuquerque international airport (the airport code is, easily enough, ABQ). But, it's sometimes cheaper to fly into somewhere like New York, and then take Southwest Airlines (www.iflyswa.com), which is the US's discount airline (nowhere near as cheap as Ryan Air, but much nicer) to Abq.
