Independent_Tiger_65

I mean I'd like to but I'm not sure how to approach the language barrier What's your English like?


[deleted]

I honestly can’t tell if you’re being sarcastic haha


Independent_Tiger_65

So we are. Thats some pretty good English too ill admit. I had the sarcasm knocked out of me back in my days at the local hedge school unfortunately, I've been super serious ever since.


[deleted]

That’s too bad, hopefully you’ll see the humor in my ways too haha


Independent_Tiger_65

Now that we are being serious I've a serious question to ask. How do they make mashed potato in california?


Independent_Tiger_65

While I was teasing you earlier I will say that if you have any questions or the likes feel free to message!


[deleted]

We’re speaking it now ☺️


EskimoB9

Dear Feisty_Snow_Beaner It's beenany moons since the last time we spoke, of which we learned you were being shipped off to iowa to fight the war against minapolis(?) When will this long war end and bring you back to us your family here in California. This winter has killed off two cows, 1 sheep and a man from some made up place called Londonderry. Sure we only know a place called derry. Please send your mother a letter as she is worried. Yours truly Eskimo


the_o_haganator

Londonderry is a real place, it's just not where people think, because a mistake made by a lad called garry jumitts in 1803 when placing roadsigns, he acvidentaly placed the sign for a small farm village in tyrone, named londonderry in the place of a few sign for derry, which was the perfect distance away. Due to this there is some confusion about the name itself, and the place, but dont worry, lately some kind county council lads did a lovely job at correcting this 120 year old mistake.


JasonHasMyHeart69ed

People still penpal? Like full on handwritten letters? I assumed we were all slaves to the screen! The discord does be fairly lively with chat most days, if that'll do ya! Link should be in the side bar there


[deleted]

No I don’t mean the traditional writing long letters out haha . I just figured in this digital age people would know I meant just messaging/chatting back and forth lol


JasonHasMyHeart69ed

Sure ya never know, people are strange! All these hipsters wanting to get back to old school roots, maybe letter writing is the next big thing!


Hitchie_Rawtin

Eugh, letters are so last year. I only communicate with close friends via heiroglyph.

Comprehensive-Cat-86

You'll have to speak up, I'm wearing a towel


Loracsx

Is this a sugar daddy type deal lol


[deleted]

I’m independent and live on my own ☺️


tonydrago

He didn't say no...


Cautious-Fortune2616

I will yeah


[deleted]

That definitely means u won’t lol


Cautious-Fortune2616

Ahh you’re good 😂😂


Branchclaw

Keeping up with the irish urban dictionary I see


Cautious-Fortune2616

Did ye have no luck on the Ireland page


[deleted]

I actually did! but some folks suggested this subreddit as well hah


Cautious-Fortune2616

Ahh good! How many pen pals do ye have now?


[deleted]

I’ve got a few ☺️


Cautious-Fortune2616

I’d say mattress mick would make ye a fine pen pal..


Mrkerro

Be honest now. Are you just looking for the ride ?


[deleted]

I’m pretty independent and I intend to keep it that way. Just wanting to chat with Irish folks lol


Zearoh88

(Sex. By “the ride”, Mrkerro meant sex.)


[deleted]

I knew that hahahaha


Mrkerro

Nothing stopping you from being independent and wanting a ride to be fair. Fair enough. Can’t promise you the quickest of replies or the most articulate but if you want to send a message I’ll reply.


jackoirl

Iowa would be a long way to go for a ride.


Mrkerro

![gif](giphy|wihDFCX0Svqec) Edit to add this is a joke. I have no interest in ridin anyone on Reddit or in Iowa.


bad_arts

Just watch the banshees of inisherin, it's a documentary about Ireland in 2023.


weeyums

Really explains well why no one has fingers here


abrasiveteapot

It's why we can't be penpals, not enough fingers for the writing. I can push the keys on the keyboard with the stumps though.


Tsujigiriforbeer

Just join the discord its a complete and utter shitshow of nonsense talk and cats/dogs/fastfood/games comparisons also beer and ufc


Hitchie_Rawtin

How are beer and UFC the add-ons at the end there? Beer is the lifeblood of our drunken pie-faced foolish server.


Tsujigiriforbeer

I try not to lead with the best bits


JasonHasMyHeart69ed

Gotta leave em wanting more


[deleted]

I think someone else said that maybe I will. I actually just made a discord acct yesterday hahaha


Mauvemoose

I'd love to do it, but you would have to be willing to put me up for 2 weeks in the summer, and I'll reciprocate by letting you visit me in Bray


SteveK27982

You again…


[deleted]

Me 😅👋


PurpleWomat

Now I have an oddly specific craving for Dinty Moore beef stew, which apparently my brain associates with Iowa...?


[deleted]

Mmmm I wouldn’t say that’s associated with Iowa necessarily lol


PurpleWomat

Just checked the prices of it over here...and holy fuck...it's E126 for a 12 pack and E76 for a 4 pack, plus E10 for delivery! Well, now I know what to tell the Snickers guy to bring if he ever comes back..


tonydrago

Beef stew from a can? Come on lad, if there's one thing an Irish person ought to be able to knock up themselves it's a stew.


PurpleWomat

It's not that, it's more like a craving for a particular kind of junk food. I sometimes crave tinned potatoes too, even though I have bags of fresh ones in the house. I blame my brain.


ffsk88

We are a great bunch of lads in fairness


PanNationalistFront

Blur or Oasis?


fiwaeawi

I shot JR


Fathertedisbrilliant

I accept but only via us dming each other pictures of hand written letters 😎


irishplonker

Welcome from the irish people in winter when we drink beer and hard alcohol and eat stews all days while waiting for our 2, maybe 3 weeks of summer to come around for when we can do all this stuff outside. Then back into the house for next winter.


[deleted]

Love it ☺️


Frequent_Failure

Get the app Slowly! It lets you write digital letters to people.


[deleted]

Someone else suggested this to me, thanks!


StanleyWhisper

People think we are Catholic we are actually all still pagans


[deleted]

Catholicism = Paganism right?


farrun

Yes but only to speak of artichokes


Rickdiculous_Mortyfy

Sure thing sounds fun :)


JonWatchesMovies

Sure. What made you move from California to Iowa?


[deleted]

Well CA just hasn’t been in a good state for sometime , i have other reasons too, a laundry list haha. If you’re interested in having an American pen pal then jhst send me a message haha


Weird_o_1

Sure thing, what is Iowa like?


JerryHutch

Must be load testing new Reddit inbox technology 🤔


callmecatlady23

Do I count as an Irish pen pal if I too am from California but have been living in Ireland for a few years?


[deleted]

callmecatlady23

StarsofSobek

Ridgecrest? That’s my go-to guess.


Weird_Potentials-

What do you want to chat about?


DAZTEC

What do you wanna learn? I’ll expect a 3000 word essay, no more no less. If it’s a good essay, I’ll pretend to be your Irish grandparent so you can get an Irish passport…


ReturnFun9600

They're not native, that's racist. *


jackoirl

The Irish are native in Ireland ….who did you think our native people were???


broken_neck_broken

I could set you up with Teresa Carmody, but there is to be no sexual intercourse without her consent and absolutely NO spreading lies about Limerick.


PATRICKBIRL
