Lá Fhéile Pádraig!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

I've always loved the Irish because of their ability to drink. I like people that can hold their liquor! (One of my ancestrally Irish friends can drink more beer than an entire rugby team.)

There are a lot of people here at work today that are dressed in green (including me, because I hate being pinched!) and I've had a chocolate cupcake topped with unnaturally green frosting. The frosting instantly turned my hand green, that's how intensely greeeeeeen it was.

Whether you're eating green food (or colcannon!) or drinking green beer, sláinte! (Good health!)

I say this from painful experience: do not go to any Irish pubs in L.A. tonight. Unless you enjoy trying to drink while pinned between two burly men that have been sloshed since 11 a.m.
