A little early, but hope everyone has a great St. Pat's day tomorrow.

Remember to stop by your local pub and have a stout and some good times

I REALLY wanna go to the parade!! But my voice lesson is at 13h00 and the parade starts at 12h00- which means a serious lack of time enough to get there, with the crowds!!

I haven't decided what to do about it yet.

But as an interesting aside, I checked my phone messages this morning and found a hilarious series of messages from my friend Andrew, who left them last night, while I was sitting inside my house, bored, having forgotten my cell in the car:

(It should be noted at this juncture that Andrew and I have a long and proud history of leaving amusing, and or musically themed messages for one another. This one was by far the best, however.)

Message #1- (TONS of pub noise in the back ground through all these) "Hey Avalon! It is Andrew! Lalalala! I'm at McKibbons, and I know it's a bit early for St.Patty's but we've started celebrating anyway, so come on down here!!"

#2- "Avalon! [singing] Tuuuuurallluuura luraaaaaaah! Tuuuraluuuurah laaaayyyyyy! [still singing] Get your ass on down here! Cause it's St. PAtty's dayyyyy! --- AND I'M DRINKING GUINESSSS!!! *giggle*"

#3- " ......... [pregnant pause] Hey, Avalon! For her eyes were brown and her hair was looonnnnggg [launches into Irish tune] blah blah blah sing sing sing [around this time you notice he's begun slurring a bit...] of my sweet lady faiiiirrrrrrrrrrr! Avalon!!!! *whine* CALL me BAAAACKKKK! Dee's here and everything!!"

#4- "[slurring obviously now] ... okay okay... [whispering:] shut up guys, I'm about to... here goes... [yelling] ON! GRAFTON! STREET! IN! NOVEMBER! WE'D BEEN WALKING ALONG THE... [etc] *giggle* [hangs up]"

#5- "[Andrew in the background whispering:] "1-2-3, GO!" [drunken and unintelligible foreign voice:] "...ARblah...blannerve...smuh... patty'sdayzzzz.... plurBLAH!!!" [Andrew's voice again] Hahah! ASz youu can tell, thah -wasDee, anhesaysh, yewbedder git yerass downere, cuz wur having funn... so callmeBACK, o-KAY? ......... okay. Yeash. Gooood... Oh dear. Why aren'tchou here yett? ughn... *click*"

I have to call him, I'm thinking...

holly golightly 03-16-2003 08:56 PM

ditto ladies. be safe but more importantly have fun .

LadyFaile 03-16-2003 09:05 PM

lol he sounds like fun

my roommate is part irish and says he's never not gone drinking on st' patrick's day, so we're getting dragged out tomorrow to Molly Bloom's (irish pub) after work. he works at like 7am though so we probably won't be out real late. i figure i can have 3 or 4 drinks max and if i'm home by midnight i'll be a-ok for work on tuesday. but at the same bar tomorrow there's also a going away party for bf's manager so we might have difficulties getting out of there at a decent time.

i just realized tonight that i have nothing green to wear tomorrow though i do have a flashy hair clip with springy shamrocks sticking out all over. i bought clothes today too, i should've got the shirt in green instead of blue just for this purpose. oh well.

Avalon 03-17-2003 09:00 AM

OOOH! I can wear my Irish rugby shirt today!!!

I forgot I had it!! (And my giant Baileys HAt!! woohooo!)

Seadolphin 03-17-2003 10:56 AM

Happy Saint Patrick's Day to all! Don't forget your green this morning! I can't wait to go out tonite!!

ObsidianZebra 03-17-2003 12:27 PM

If some guy uses my not wearing green today as an excuse to pinch my ass, I will then proceed to slap him into next week.

Despite my Irish herritage, I'm not doing squat to celebrate. Maybe I'll just listen to the Pogues.
