I'm a theif! (The art of making a genuine Guinness pint glass yours)

Random, yes, and has nothing to do with the factory, but my last name's Peterson and I had to take a picture of it!

Ok, so let me preface this by saying that I have never before stolen anything, so in general-I'm not a theif, just today I am. A trip to Dublin wouldn't be complete without a tour of the Guinness Factory so we made a trip over to where this famous beer is brewed. I've got to say that I was pretty impressed with the factory-they showed you everything from how exactly the beer was made, to the ingredients inside, to history and advertising campaigns. Some of our group was more interested in the beer though, and made it to the bar at the top quicker than I could've given them directions up the stairs, and I must admit we made it up there pretty fast too.

My goodness, my Guinnes that beer is filling! Sorry, I'm corny, but I couldn't stop myself from obliging when someone asked me to finish their complimentary beer when they couldn't.

Absolutely gorgeous views of Dublin are found at the top of the factory, and...the ex of the guy Brett hooked up with the week before we left for Europe?? Right after the entire bar finished a rousing rendition of Happy Birthday, we heard someone calling his name-how the hell do you run into somone from California, in Dublin? All I have to say is it's a small, small world... (Sorry if I got the song stuck in your head, and if you don't know what I'm talking about, you need to get your booty to Disneyland-stat!)

Anyway, to the part where I stole a pint glass...I was rather proud of myself, as I felt I was rather stealth and James Bond-like (minus the gun of course)-when I finished my beer I casually turned toward the window and covered my glass with my red peacoat...and walked out just like that...there's really not much to it. Now, while I am proud I pulled it off without being caught, I do feel a bit guilty, I'm not usually the type to break the rules, and if anyone reading this works at the Guinness Factory and wants their pint glass back, it should probably still be in Ashburn Gardens in London...
