        Zen Arado: you have trouble sleeping?

        Zen Arado: yes
        Zen Arado: I had a girlfriend used to have awful probs

        Zen Arado: coldest for 20 years
        Flux Constantine: I was just watching a video of Bono busking on the street in Dublin... I think on Christmas Eve, maybe?
        Zen Arado: didn't see that
        Zen Arado: wonder why he did that?
        Flux Constantine: don't know
        Zen Arado: he is into politics a bit I think
        Zen Arado: environmental campaigning maybe
        Zen Arado: funny ppl don't realize how divided Ireland is
        Zen Arado: I consider myself British more than Irish
        Zen Arado: the South of Ireland is a different country
        Flux Constantine: ah, OK... that's where my ancestors are from, mostly... the south of ireland

        Zen Arado: so I have Irish ancestry too :)
        Zen Arado: you ever been here?
        Flux Constantine: no, not yet. I'd like to, though. I haven't traveled much at all
        Zen Arado: funny how few Americans ever leave America
        Zen Arado: but I guess the country is so big you don't need to
        Zen Arado: would take a long time to see all of it
