Out of the Blue

Today is Saint Patrick's Day, conveniently placed during the weekend this year for your recovery needs. What's also nice is that means fewer people will be forced to be part of the festivities if they are not so inclined. And if you are inclined, well, I hope you have ample opportunity to party until you're green in the face. Just be careful on the roads, you certainly don't want to drink and drive, nor be the victim of someone else who doesn't appreciate that fact.

Not even the Irish celebrate it? Are you serious?

Speaking as an Irishman, in Ireland, the morning after St. Paddy's Day (*not* Patty!) - and who (like everyone else in this nation) has Monday off as a bank holiday because of it, and who went to his local parade yesterday and saw the Dublin one on tv, I can tell you - you're talking total rubbish. Sorry, garbage to Americans.

For those of us who work in hospitality it's probably the most loathed of all worknights. We refer to it as 'Amateur Night' or 'Clown School'. If there's one night we also don't go out drinking, this is it.

Wife works the biz, said it was pretty slow downtown MPLS, but I am sure everyone went to St. Paul - they have a parade and tons of crap going on. Glad I wasn't there.

I worked - had a drunk chic roll her car at about 60 MPH. I can't believe people walk away from these rollovers with no injuries. Automotice technology is pretty damn cool.

I did get an order of corn beef and cabbage from a place in MPLS before I went to work. Was friggen awesome. They do it up right. Beef was friggen crumblin!

Yeah, I never got St. Patrick's day. Not even the Irish celebrate it, so what's the point?
To get drunk, duh. You're getting pinched. So am I since I didn't wear green.
