I lived in Kilkenny for most of the first decade of the 21st century
But I love Kilkenny. No question about that. I love the place. I've met some good people here, and I have a good social life. That's nothing to sneeze at, in my book.
It's Friday evening early enough and I'm in for the night. Fuck it; I have a social life and I don't need the hassle tonight. It gets crowded; and it can be fun on selected occasions, no doubt. But it's a mad scene, by any definition. It takes a mood. My mood tonight is "fuck it." I'm having a better time at home with my computer; and the radio's good. I've got candles, Guinness, smoke, and a cigarette.
