Anyone awake out there?

Okay, so it's 3:11 a.m. and why am I online, you ask (especially those of you who know I don't have a computer or internet access at home).  Well, because I'm not home.  Because I'm still at the office.  Because I'll be here the rest of the night and then through another work day.  *stops a moment to do the math*  That means I'll be walking out of here to go home in just another 15.5 hours.  Piece of cake.

I stayed to do work.  Remember that "Just to let you know" post from a few hours ago?  And I've actually been doing work (and playing a little over in the WA world with the natural gas story).  I also keep checking my friends page, but no one seems to be around.  :-(

jenni_snake?  So when do you usually head over to the internet café, anyway?

crazybutsound?  You awake?

Spain will manage fine with the smoking ban. we did. Everyone pisses and moans before the thing comes into force and then complies like little lambs.

Yup, I think the US work regime would kill me. And it's not like our way slows economic performance or anything. Ireland is booming, as you can see from these figures

Oh, California led the way here with the ban on smoking in restaurants and bars. Everyone adapted just fine (of course, it helped that our weather made it possible for bars to create outdoor seating areas for smokers). It was really very funny to watch how the New Yorkers took it when it happened to them.

Very nice numbers indeed. Do they still refer to Ireland as the Celtic Tiger?

The Celtic Tiger term is considered a bit hackneyed at this stage, but overseas journalists probably still use it.
