@WilliamGibney ok @justinbieber was on grafton street yesterday and when he got out of the shop he was stuck in he said Irish fans are no joke -- we rock!!

@Claudia_Boucher @justinbieber Dublin fans are no joke. We love you, even if we do trap you inside a shop on grafton street. Much love!

@RedHeadFashion As my last day before I give up shopping for Lent, I'm browsing poetry anthologies. It's culture, it should be exempt.
