July [undated], 2001

I went into the GPO yesterday to consult the one set of phonebooks in all of Ireland.  It’s sort of like the library of Alexandria – if the GPO ever burns all the numbers of Ireland will be lost forever.  Plunging Ireland into another dark age.  As if it could get darker.

As I opened the first one, brand new issued by the dates on the cover and already dog-eared, on the front page was written in great, black felt tip pen, “Fuck you immigrant bastards.”  Should I add that to my list of omens?
