There's Whisky In The Jar

Happy St. Patrick's Day. Shamrocks, potatoes, and pots of gold to all. I was going to play "Oy Rumania" in honor of the day, but audioblogger doesn't seem to be working for me. If someone would be so kind as to tell me what in hell I might be doing wrong, I'd be much obliged.

St. Paddy's Day is the only day of the year when I wish I wasn't a parent. That sounds horrible so I'll repeat it. I wish I was still wild and single and could go out and get totally drunk on whisky and green beer and be Erin-go-braghless and wear something green and low-cut and make a complete non-Irish ass out of myself.

Actually, there is tons of Irish blood in my family, but I choose to deny it. How fucked up would that make my kids if they found out the had to add Irish to their already overflowing ethnic plate. There's too much Irish pride as it is. They need to be taken down a peg with their leprechauns and O'Conners and strange sexual hang-ups. Just kidding. I LOVE the Irish when they're from Ireland or if they're named Aingealag or Bearach. I like them almost as much as the Vietnamese. *Kiss* Jethro (with a little tongue).

So I will be going to the super-suburb-family-friendly-don't-drink-because-the-kids-might-see-and-tell-the-Baptists event with Jen of Therapy Eggs and maybe another gal and their kids. Superfly.

I'm only 1/4 Irish but I have an Irish-sounding name and I grew up in a mostly Irish neighborhood, lots of Denis Leary types, hehehe. My first time was with an Irish girl FROM IRELAND no less. What I earn is the ability to say "drunk ass jig-dancin' Mick" in one of the Irish pubs in Saint Paul without having to fight more than 20 people at a time.

It'll be black 'n tans over at McGovern's fer me t'night lassie!

Wow, you are really making me excited about our impending doom (I mean fun) this evening.

I think as long as one of us is sober (and I volunteer), they can't take our children away from us.

Oh that's right! We have an automatic designated driver cuz Jen has a teeny little bun in the oven.

Elliot - I don't think where we're going is the place to "cut loose." I shudder to think what might happen if I decided to flash anyone.

Inanna - I'll probably be doing the same.

Angi - Despite your missionary position, I barely consider you Baptist at all.

Johnny5 - Johnny-go-get-some.

Ciggy - Wish I could join you

Jpck - I'm wearing green. And I'm going to make my hair red again. I could pass for Irish.

I'm wearing green. My boss is wearing green. hell, all the brokers are wearing green. This really weird olive/baby crap green color. But green, nonetheless. :) If you drink green beer does that count as having green on? Hrm.

Also, best pizza I ever had was at an IRISH pizza place in Chicago. We always suspected they were using a "special herb" as the oregano, hehehe... gotta keep it green...

i have to type softly becuz of the hang-go-ver. being an irish/am is great. there is always a lawyer, judge, or police chief in your family who can give you free legal advice.

and.

you made me crave vietnamese food so badly. that summer roll thing, mmmmm

Irish accents are the most badass. Much cooler than my faux-jamaican accident and craptacular Chinese supermarket accent. It's just so hard to mimic!
