Happy Paddy's Day!

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by Leinad, Mar 17, 2005.

  1. Yes, the holiday where people around the world go mad and get totally wasted, because it's what the Irish "do", and since their aunt's cousin 2ce removed once ate a potato, that means they're Irish too! While most of us over here sit at home and watch the parade on telly.

    Despite my despisement of this holiday, I know for some reason celebrating the life of a Welshman means something to the non-Irish out there! Have a happy and safe St. Patrick's Day!
  2. Aye to be sure! :smug:

    My Pat was at home today "recovering" from laser surgery to remove a skin cancer. Which was probably a good thing, 'cos if he'd been at work today I would have given him St Pat's hell.

    "I'm not no-one's bloody saint!" :mad: :p

  4. I'm just about to learn the last bloody song for my St. Patty's day one off gig. Should be a blast actually, I'm playing for an internationally touring celtic punk band. For some reason Ottawa especially goes absolutely INSANE for this holiday too, it's an hours lineup to get into the bars usually starting at about 10am.
  5. My suname is 'Flynn' - minus the obligatory 'O' - as in O' Flynn - so I supose I should be celebrating - but I have a rehearsal tonight - so it'll just be the two bottles of wine and some Guinness then...
