As Elaine said, I'm clearly not Irish (though I have been asked once whether I was "a mixed?!?") But my green WAS on purpose. As Michael Scott wisely put it, "St. Patrick's Day is the closest the Irish will ever get to Christmas." Y'know. Besides... Christmas.
Did any of you wear festive green today? If you didn't, someone's askin' for a-pinchin' on the bottom! I'll do it, just you watch, even if it's after St. Patrick's Day. The leprechaun would want it that way.
I'm being all fine and dandy with the tree bush when AGGHGHGH AHHH IT GOT ME THE VENGEFUL TREE BUSH GOT ME.
This St. Patty's Day, Lizzie and I decided to hightail the traditional Irish grub in order to avoid the massive, mostly inebriated crowd. Not to say that I don't love my fish and chips, but I could do without the green beer and vomit (though some might argue that THAT'S WHAT MAKES ST. PATRICK'S DAY SO WONDERFUL I would beg to differ).
Instead, we opted for lovely healthy vegan food, since I requested (more like half begged) Lizzie that we eat at a relatively healthy spot after that greasy monstrosity of a hamburger yesterday-- but then, anything is relatively healthy to that. It was very scrumdiddlyumptious (yes, I'm now Ned Flanders), and the only reason I don't have food porn to share is that the quality of the picture was pretty sucky. And there's no worse porn buzzkill than poorly lighted food, amirite.
As you can see, I wasn't the only one who took St. Patrick's Day seriously. At least Lizzie has a legit excuse to dress head to toe in green, she has somethingsomething% Irish in her.
Aren't her shamrock earrings adorable??
I may or may not have
coerced Lizzie to take some pictures for this blog's sake while wearing her pirate coat that I borrowed because the cool wind was making me a bit of a weenie.

We also may or may not have gotten a weird look from a lady from inside this building while we were taking pictures... sneakily.
What's Lovely for March 17, 2010: Besides wearing bright green on St. Patrick's Day and catching up with friends in a coffee shop-- this video clip that just made me smile and smile (because I'm silly). Ironically, it's in Russian.
If you have no idea what's going on, I suggest you educate yourself posthaste.
