I was a freshman, went down town and there were pools of green vomit, I never liked the heavy drinking holidays.

A lot of people skipping class or calling in sick, or both. End result? Fun. It's good medicine, unless you're a drinker.

Inexperienced drinkers filling up the bars and puking all over themselves.

Exposed breasts, green necklaces, green beer and people vomiting in the street.

May God Bless Americans--Irish/American or otherwise.

So according to Dorcella Rowland's statement, Native Americans don't celebrate St patricks day?

Irish Step Dancing. Heard this one on the radio today- What do you call the buildings the Irish little folk live in? A Leprechaundo.

I honor of St. Patrick Swayze, I will be doing a rather dirty dance. But only to my theme song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LBGO_LHUgYw

Deja~ Recipe, please!! ;-)

I think of my English/Irish grandma and the shillelagh she always kept by her door (and would not have hesitated to use, had the need presented), and her appreciation for an occasional Guinness. She, of course, scorned the American abomination, green beer. She loved the color, though, and wore it well.

I also think of crazy drunk Americans and crazy parades and pub shenanigans. No harm, as long as you stumble home--on the sidewalks, not in the street--or have a DD in your group. Please party safely, folks!

It's all good fun--lord knows, people need a chance to forget the sorrows of the world and enjoy themselves now and then. Lighten up, some of youse (that's my Great Lakes side speaking).

I think of Agnostick dancing down Mass Street in a green tutu.

Seriously though, I think of my old "friend" Mike Murphy riding the garbage truck. RIP Mke

All I can think about today is finishing up the cupcakes for a friend's party. The cupcakes: Guinness Cupcakes with Bailey's Irish Cream and Jameson Whiskey Frosting! Happy St. Patty's Day!!

Mike Murphy riding the garbage truck in the KC parade.............if he still even does that.

(WHAT!?!?!?)

Incidentally....you are only supposed to wear a 'kiss me I'm Irish' t-shirt if you are an unattractive person...that's part of the whole joke. I don't have one of those shirts myself, but sure...I qualify (to wear one)!! Beautiful people...don't wear those shirts....whatcha gonna do when someone comes up and says "ok!! pucker up baby!!" defeats the whole purpose.

The first thing that comes to mind is the time I got banned for life from Kelly's in Westport for overindulging in frottage. Fine by me. I don't like Westport and I sure as hell don't like Kelly's.

The only thing the Lawrence parade has to do with "St Patrick" is the name. Substitute that with "Green Beer and Plastic Beads Day" and you'd have some accuracy. That said, I don't begrudge Lawrence it's giddy spring bacchanal. Have fun guys. To actually answer the MOTS question; I think of white lace and green satin, followed closely by a thatched roof cottage and the scent of a peat fire. (Nothing smells like a peat fire.)

Corned beef and cabbage and of course potatoes. You can cook the corned beef in Guiness but make sure you have plenty left for you.

Also, Druids. :)

Why on earth anyone would take their children to a parade in which:

  1. The streets are lined with drunks; and
  2. The parade starts at a strip club.

Wow, saying "Irish" kinda feels like I'm getting away with something. Like saying "damn" or "hell" in church when I was 11 years old. I look forward now to April 29 . . . Arbor Day . . .
