my plans for the day: , singing songs such as "irish drinking song" by dropkick murphys and "pints of guinness will make you stronger" by against me! at the top of my lungs with a friend.. um.. more ... and the rest will just fall into place
Anybody remember The Simpsons episode in which Bart forgot it was SP's day and was the only one at school who didn't wear any green and everybody tackled him to pinch him? It was like that when I was in elem. school. It didn't matter if you weren't Irish, no green, you *always* got pinched.
Happy St. Patrick's day. I'm wearing black. But, my hair has gone stupid so I've got "festive" greenish colored bangs. And the last time I dyed my hair was mid January, with a blue that usually lasts less than a month on my hair... I feel festive, and I really don't want to. But its not as bad as my ultra religious friends that say since Leprechauns aren't "real" they can't celebrate it since imaginary things are things satan made. And, that's not the worst/weirdest/most interesting thing they've said about holidays. (and no, they're not Jehova's Witnesses. They're Free Will Baptist. (And if you forget the "free will" part, they immediately tell you about how they're sooooo different from them...)
I don't have anything green to wear, so I went out early this morning and purchased an "Erin Go Braugh" pin. After closer inspection, it says, in small letters right next to the "Erin Go Braugh", "made in china". How festive.
