    Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

    HAPPY ST. PATRICK’S DAY!


    I just wanted to wish everyone a Happy St. Patrick’s Day, and to see who is wearing green, and if anyone had plans.

    Being Irish, I have on a green tie, planning on eating corned beef and cabbage for lunch, and after work meeting up with a few friends at O’Duffy’s for a few pints of Guinness!

    have a good St. Patty's day!

    drink heavily, if you wish.
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    Let's not be didactic in this profession, because that is a path to disillusion and irrelevancy.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    Wearing neither green nor orange today.

    In fact, I'm wearing a slight variation on "The Uniform."

    Green shirt, green socks and going out for a Guiness after work (only one though, because last night was party night ).

    ...planning on eating corned beef and cabbage for lunch...
    Do you cubicle dwellers really think that eating corned beef and cabbage for lunch is such a good idea? I mean, think of the environmental risk you could pose to your co-workers.

    Green tie, 'cause I'm Irish! Tonight, mass at St. Patrick's followed by a potluck with the congregation (including some green hops-injected beverage, so I am told).
    SOME say the world will end in fire, Some say in ice.
    From what I’ve tasted of desire
    I hold with those who favor fire.
    But if it had to perish twice, I think I know enough of hate
    To know that for destruction ice
    Is also great
    And would suffice.

    YOU ROCK! I don't plan on having that much... but I can say that I will have my Irish share.

    I have a green sweater on, but it was unplanned. A friend of mine shares a B-Day with St. Paddys day and he is taking a 1/2 day today so he can get started at noon. My guess is if I meet up with him after work, he will be pretty messed up. It is likely that I may just go home. I don't like going out for St. Paddys day...there are way too many people crodwing the bars. Plus if I see people dirnking crappy green beer it makes me angry! If you want to drink something Irish drink Guinness or Harp. I play softball for an Irish Pub and it sucks when the bar that you frequent is crowded with a bunch of drunken people wearing stupid green hats.

    Very dark green shirt, in the mode of the alternative "planner's uniform".
    Probably have a couple Guinness drafts in a bottle tonight after urban enterprise board meeting.

    Yesterday my son asked why St. Patrick is important and I told him St. Patrick drove the snakes out of Eire. Daddy, teacher told us there never were snakes in Ireland. Well, then ask teacher why St. Patrick is important and remind her I'm paying four grand to send you to that catholic school . . . .

    Green sweater and a shamrock headband--not the plastic kind with spring mounted, sparkly shamrocks attached--it's fabric and not tacky. Although, I've been known to sport that kind at the bar in college... I'm heading out to the bars later for some pints and at least one Guinness.

    Forgot about wearing green until I got to work and one of my coworkers was wearing green shoes. So I am un-green today. Every year one of our part-time workers and her husband prepare corned beef and cabbage for Paddy's Day, so I will have some for lunch and then make corned beef for dinner as well. I love corned beef.

    I am in my "uniform" (blue/blue) because I have a trails meeting with an HOA tonight.

    The only green I'm wearing is an emerald.

    I'm wearing green jeans, but I didn't do it purposely because of St. Patrick's Day. It's cold and windy here.

    Burrito for me.

    Just had a big meal of corned beef, cabbage, potatos and carrots, and am listening to the Pogues - Streams of Whiskey. It's great to be Irish...now bring me a Guiness!

    I had a beer with the flatties to celebrate, but then had Pilates (its already Thurs here). I think the parade is tomorrow? Apparently all the Irish pubs were packed last night!
