3/17/09 Irish Eyes Are Smiling

*Sorry, pics are gone.

The Irish say Everyone has a wee bit of Irish in them on St. Patrick’s Day. So being a wee bit Irish today I set off to find out about everything Irish.

Even the Obama’s are Irish today. Michelle and her leprechauns dyed the White House fountains green today. Pittsburgh's own Dan Rooney (owner of the Pittsburgh Steelers) was named Ambassador to Ireland today.

It’s all about this guy…*St. Patrick

If you don’t wear green you’ll get pinched by everyone but your boss (sexual harassment and all that). I sent both of my boys off to school without reminding them…no green….BWhaahaahaahaaha (evil laugh). Hey, teenage boys getting pinched by the girls…I think I did them a favor. If you tell people you're Irish they have to kiss you...keep breathmints on hand.

Of course, they eat potatoes and corned beef, but they also eat some of this today…I don’t even want to know…haggis…

They drink a LOT of this today. This pic is of Guiness beer, but it looks the same as Irish coffee with clotted cream on top…to the Irish, it really doesn’t matter as long as it has alcohol in it…and after awhile the pub bartenders can serve either and no one knows the difference…it’s all good…

After a few drinks they run around looking for their Pot-O-Gold… *port-o-potty

…or if the line at the Port-O-Pot-O-Gold is too long they use this one… *leprechaun pot

Then they dance the Irish jig…and apparently if done fast enough you'll eventually levitate through the air…

Then they fall down into the grass and look for these… *4 leaf clover

And if they're really lucky, they'll catch one of these guys...probably passed out right next to them... *leprechun

A toast to you on St. Patty's Day....

For each petal on the shamrock
This brings a wish your way.
Good health, good luck, and happiness
For each and every day.

Slainté! (health)
