Just how many different ways will internet pharmaceutical companies find to spell the word "viagra" to beat my anti-spamming measures???

HANGING LUAS
My car badly needed a service, so I wanted to leave it in to Carroll & Kinsella in Walkinstown where I first bought it. They have moved to the Ballymount Road, so I took the excuse to try the new "Luas" line into town on my way home; I got it to Connolly station then got the DART back here. It also gave me an excuse to listen to the new U2 album "How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb" properly and I am officially a fan. Hopefully my 95Golf is good for a little while longer, I will find out in a matter of hours.

TWIN DUTCH RATHER THAN DOUBLE
One of Jason's selling points on the upcoming weekend in Amsterdam was the fact that we would be able to get accommodation for round €15 per night. Some internet research proved this to be true, but only in a shared hostel with up to ten other people. My 35 years of age, I feel, puts me in a bracket beyond staying in such establishments, however, and I convinced him that we should instead get a twin room in a 1-star hotel, which I was able to do for €45/night. We are thus all booked in the Travel Hotel on Beursstraat.
