Dublin or bust

My brother and I work in the exact same profession, with the exact same client demographic, at "competing businesses"* across the street from one another. Somehow we almost never see each other, but we're always thinking of each other.

In this morning's inbox I received this message from him:

Just yell if you need anything.

Currently Guinness is the answer to everything. Tasty, tasty Guinness.

Cheers,
Bro.


:) Is there any wonder he is my favorite relative? Once our madness dies down it might be time for a tasty, tasty Guinness together.

Anyone else care to join? My brother is super cool and there's a nice Irish pub down the hill from us.



*I use the term "competing businesses" so loosely that it just fell down around its own ankles. We're not direct competitors, but we do steal each other's clients quite a bit. ;)

I [HEART] Guinness.

Wish I was in France like you. Count me in, virtually.

Damn. Just thought of a better comment:

"Dublin or bust": Can't I get both?

Poppy Cede said...

B, I see Guinnesses in our future. :)

Mikey, awesome. And it's ok to leave 2 comments but there's no chance in hell you get my bust in front of my brother. That's just wrongness.

Are you guys both French bakers?

Joefish said...

Guinness? Ew. Just... ew.

Poppy Cede said...

Avi, who are you talking to/about?

jf, right, forgot you like the cheap beer. :P

Yum, I love Guinness. It saves time, too. It's like drinking a beer and having a hamburger at the same time!

I've always said that the best thing ever would be a Guinness and vanilla ice cream float, but I am afraid to try it because I think I'll like it too much.

Poppy Cede said...

Jen, one of our local Irish pubs actually makes a Guinness float!

I hear they're quite tasty. :)

Is your brother cute and single?

(What? I'm just asking...)

Poppy Cede said...

Cute, yes. Single, no.

Avitable said...

You and your brother. Since you're in competing businesses in France and all.

Poppy Cede said...

You are too wildly complex for my little brain, Adam.

Tug said...

I'll have a Killian's please

Dan said...

It's always the right time for a Guinness. Drink it at room temperature.

New York City's Watchdog said...

I adore Guiness... with some Bass though.

I'm all about the black and tan.

Poppy Cede said...

Tug, mmmmm, Killian's. You're on to something.

Dan, an excellent suggestion. The next time I have some I definitely will. It's not as good cold.

Dawg, maybe we need to drink Black and Tans while we do our Cereal Wednesday vlog in October... :D
