Because did you know St. Patrick was in fact originally associated with the color BLUE?
Go Blue! Happy St. Patrick's Day! Stay safe out there!
on schooling people how to crazy Irish dance
What a timeless talent.
Leprechauns Just Because
Enjoy the day!!!
I'm not wearing green nor do I own anything green. The only good green is Derrick Green and Rickey Green.
Labbatt Blue tonight for me.
Not a lick of Green in the closet! Will get some wife approved Irish beer on the way home.
Nothing beats lying face down in a puddle of your own green vomit.
Is that only supposed to happen on St. Paddy's day?
Who stole me lucky charms?
Am I supposed to have warm and fuzzy feelings for Notre Dame today? Because I don't. I hope that doesn't make me a bad person.
To hell with Notre Dame.
Rudy was offsides!
It's SPD, not poultry day!
well rounded person in full control of his/her capacities.
It makes you good. You are Naked Bootlegger and you will prosper.
Okay, maybe not.
Brady Hoke sums up Notre Dame well...
* St. Paddy's day
Running on 4 1/2 hours of sleep. Can't hear a thing from the Slighly Stoopid concert last night. Chilling at my desk. Nice and slow so far. All is good.
I get to spend a good portion of my St. Patrick's Day in meetings, which means that unfortunately it is going to be an otherwise typical Monday around here. I will probably stop for some Guinness after work, of course, as by then I am likely to need a pint or several.
Of course, this is the day I miss having my old, old office in downtown Ann Arbor the most - we could watch people wander about and, in some cases, pass out all afternoon long on St. Patrick's Day. The one time it was on a Friday, nothing got done that afternoon - we were far too busy looking out the window, laughing.
Notre Dame SUCKS!
Boss lady is out of the office today...might be the perfect time to sneak away for an extended lunch, grab a beer, and watch the Parade in downtown St. Paul
Happy St. Patty's. Good thing I am stuck at work today. Still recovering from the weekend in Grand Rapids..
St. Pattys Day tip: replacing "my" with "me" in a sentence makes you sound like a leprechaun. 60% of the time, it works every time.
HAPPY ST. PATTYS DAY!!
Well me, me, me, isn't that an awesome tip!
and call my Uncle Lester.
Wait, what? I don't even have an uncle Lester.
I'm waiting for the giant "science" news that was promised me last week on this O'BLOG. On pins and needles here.
Discovery of gravitational waves by Bicep telescope at south pole could give scientists insights into how universe was born
I upvoted you for giving me that news, but I really feel they just could have announced that last week instead of making us wait...
Also, that's going to get a lot of peoples' knickers in a twist!!
...for Fox/Nat Geo extending the Cosmos series for a full 22 episode season. That news would be HUGE!
Christopher Moltisanti: I'm going to hell, T.
Anthony 'Tony' Soprano Sr.: You're not going anywheres but home.
Christopher Moltisanti: I crossed over to the other side.
Anthony 'Tony' Soprano Sr.: You what?
Christopher Moltisanti: I saw the tunnel. And the white light. I saw my father in hell.
Paulie 'Walnuts' Gualtieri: Get the fuck outta here!
Christopher Moltisanti: And the bouncer said that I'd be there, too, when my time comes.
Paulie 'Walnuts' Gualtieri: What bouncer?
Christopher Moltisanti: The Emerald Piper. That's our hell. It's an Irish bar where it's St. Patrick's Day every day forever.
as we hit the tourney. Seems like bad mojo.
Man, I wish I was out drinking instead of here in the office.
It's a good thing I look so sexy wearing green.
Pics or it didn't happen!!
Just be careful. As an active alum and person with family members in their young twenties, every year I hear about guys who screw up their lives or the lives of others on St. Patricks Day either by getting in accidents, by getting a DUI or getting in a bar fight. Last year my law firm represented some kid at OU who got in a bar fight on St. Patricks and the guy he hit not only had him prosecuted but then sued him civilly for all sorts of damages.
Keep your heads together and fergodsakes don't drive!
done with spring quarter at K! finals done. Now I can celebrate
Happy St. Pattys day!! My accounting teacher is going to hate me.
Fuck St. Patty's Day. But that's just my personal feeling. The past several years, including all of college, were pretty subpar where this "holiday" was concerned.
I openly admit there's a major element of jealousy in this comment.
The common denominator in all of your subpar St. Patty's Days has been YOU.
(I always have to work, so mine mostly suck too, FWIW.)
like a boss.
The real stuff, like the Guinness my grandfather drank, twice as strong and no nitrogen infusion:
Now that is a shame. It is only recently available in the states, and somewhat difficult to find. My local beer store ran out, so I had to brace myself and buy it in ... Whole Foods Market. Next to the organic chia seeds.
That is full on Da Vinci right there...
Today is also "Evacuation Day", I had no fucking clue.
TAKE THAT BRITS
This is the only proper way to celebrate anything having to do with anything Irish, IME.
The game is OVAH!!!
The More You Know: it's St. Paddy's day, not St. Patty's day.
Paddy is the diminuative of the male name "Patrick". Hence St. Paddy's day.
Patty is the diminuative of the female name "Patricia." St. Patricia's feast day is August 25 - that would be St. Patty's day.
March 17 St. Paddy's day.

A packaged corned beef, one onion...crockpot and simmer for 3-4 hours. After that time, add a couple pounds of red-skinned potatoes and a head of cabbage chopped into wedges, simmer those in there with the beef for one hour. Consume several Guiness during the wait.
Loaf of soft rye bread, some spicy mustard, get your peeps together for a feast and enjoy!
I'm not wearing green today, but I am wearing a Guinness shirt. Oh, and I'm Irish.
I'm not wearing green today. Also, fuck Sparty.
to all of you Irishmen out there. May the wind always be to your back.
