Anyone celebrating yet ?
Re: St Patricks Day
I'm Irish one day a year. It's hereditary, my parents were Irish one day a year.
I'm not, since I'm not Irish!
I'm Irish, but I'm working, no celebrating for me.
W and I had our Paddy's party Saturday. The local Legion has one this coming Saturday, which we'll attend. Being an atheist, the 'St.' part of the day would normally preclude my participation... but the beer makes up for it.
I'm part Irish... but I'm pregnant. No Guinness for me this year. :grumpy:
That's just bad planning on your part. No sympathy from me. :tongue:
Congrats on being pregnant physics girl. I guess I'll have a pint for you.
Happy Fookin' Paddys Day!
I have Guinness. Don't work till tonight.
I'll celebrate with St. Guinness later tonight.
I am irish, but this weekend I was overcome by a healthy stint and so I am eating vegetables and exercising instead of going to a bar. It is somewhat inconvenient (couldn't I have continued my period of unhealthy ways until after today?) but I have learned not to say no way my body says it would actually prefer to do a healthier activity.
drunk in the phys lounge, whoo!
I'm 1/2 Irish on my father's side, since the Orrs and Baileys intermarried after coming to Maine. There is an island named for each clan on the coast in Harpswell, but I don't have a piece of either. Just as well. Coastal property taxes would kill me.
Reactions to perfume have prevented me from bar-hopping, so I'll be here quietly celebrating the banishment of the snakes with a couple of Molson Goldens.
How about just stuffing your nose with cleaning?
Plugging my nose does not help. That was one of the first tests my doctor wanted to try. It doesn't matter if I can smell it or not. If I breathe it in, my body reacts.
Like Cristo, I'm not Irish, so no, I'm not celebrating.
Any celebrating I would have done would have been yesterday:
One of my research collaborators is Finnish. I'll have to see what he think of this. I have never met him, but I have worked with Finnish people who worked on the rebuilding of a local paper mill. They loved their saunas and beer, but seemed fairly reserved in some respects.
I am currently enjoying a glass of one the finest whiskeys known- 2004 Midleton.
Yes I am part Irish, yes I celebrated (in my own little way). Baked a loaf of soda bread for my wife and son.
Though I may have some Irish (and would love to, who doesn't want to be Irish) I have yet to find genealogical evidence as to any heritage of the sort.
No, I'm not really celebrating.
Besides being Finnish myself, I have another tie to St. Urho: I was born in Virginia, MN (One of the places the legend is thought to have originated from) around the same time as the legend started.
