St Patties Day

We are celebrating St Patrick's Day early today at work, because we don't work on saturdays. My Irish coworker doesn't approve of the whole "everything green and corned beef" perspective we Americans have of the holiday anyway.... so I had to make it as gaudy as possible for him.

I also picked up some Lucky Charms, which are of course very Irish. He's never tried them before, oddly enough. I said he has to, but I'm willing to wait until after lunch.

He doesn't even think Leprechans are really Irish. Silly man! I think he's okay with green beer though -- really any kind of beer.

Of COURSE Leprechauns are Irish - they're the Wee Folk. He'd better not say that too loudly or they'll be deeply offended, and the last thing anyone wants is to be in range of a pissed-off leprachaun.

Here in England we don't do a tremendous amount for St. Patrick's Day - it's for the Irish, and they tend to get extremely drunk and then start saying rude things about the English, their ancient and traditional sparring partners.

A lot of pubs try very hard to get extra custom for St. Patrick's Day, but mostly it's begorrah and green shamrocks everywhere, and not a lot else.

Your coworker isn't missing much on Lucky Charms...they taste like soap until you pour milk on 'em.
