An Irishman goes into a bar…

Good morning and welcome to this week’s #WeekendCoffeeShare!

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I have had a limited online presence lately, and I surely hope y’all have missed me immensely! (If not – then what is the point of this whole blog endeavor?) 

If we were having coffee, I would tell you about the birthday gift Sir Nerdalot and I gave each other (we both turn a year older and greyer in the summer) this year: a romantic weekend in Dublin, Ireland.

Because we are strolling the sidewalks of Dublin this weekend, so we would be having Guinness and Uisce Beatha (the Gaelic term for whiskey, translates to “water of life”). If you must have coffee, then it would have to be an Irish Coffee, after all – only Irish Coffee provides in a single glass all four essential food groups: Alcohol, Caffeine, Sugar and Fat. Also, it would leave a twinkle in your eyes.


If we were having coffee Guinness, I would promise to take lots of pictures, and put them on my blog. And I will. I just want to finish the Roskilde Cathedral-series before I put up posts from our visit to Dublin.

If we were having coffee Guinness, I would tell you a “An Irishman goes into a bar”joke:

An Irishman goes into a bar in America and orders three whiskeys. The barman asks: “Would it be better for if I put all three shots in one glass?”

The Irishman replies: “No! I have two other brothers back at home, so every time I come into a pub, I order a shot for them both.”

The following week, the Irishman orders just two whiskeys.

The barman asks: “Did something happen one of your brothers?” “Oh no,” replies the Irishman. “I just decided to quit drinking!”

  1. I had hoped to get to a big Irish celebration in Sydney todaThey have free Guiness after the formalities but I don’t drink the stuff. So much for my Irish heritage. I look forward to seeing your photos of Dublin xx Rowena
