Happy St. Patrick's Day To All

Post by SuperTed » Fri Mar 17, 2006 9:42 am

Lá Fhéile Pádraig Sona Daoibh!

It's the day when everyone's Oirish (God help us all) so Bejeasus and Bejabbers and Begorrah and...er...Be-atles!

I'm off to see V For Vendetta and then I might go up to the University area and watch the annual St Paddy's Day student riots, when all the culchies (that's country folk) pull on their GAA shirts and beat seven shades of poo out of each other. Ah yes, 17th March in Belfast, sure doesn't it make you proud to be Irish to be sure, to be sure... :lol:

I'm like... 12.5% irish... and I just happened to be wearing green today - does that mean my subconscious is more Irish than it is Polish or German?

In celebration of the day, I'm going to Chinatown for some of those red-bean-filled rice ball pastries.

My grandpa's half Irish, but since he's also half Italian, and my grandma's full Italian, the Irish-ness never really gets talked about. The Italian side always overpowers.
Seeing as how my other grandparents were also each full Italian, I know how to make almost every Italian dish there is, I know all about Italy and where my mom was born, but nothing about anything Irish:(
So sad.
I've been to Ireland though, and never Italy, so I guess it balances out :wink:

Today is Sera Sage's birthday, so we will always be celebrating St. Patty's day now!

Excuse me? Steph, you're pushing the 30% Irish mark. We thought we were 60% German, but we found out half is really Irish. So this is the first St. Patty's day where I know I'm more than 1/4 of one percent Irish!

V for Vendetta looks really good, and our crappy movie critic who usually only gives movies like The Real Cancun 4 stars, gave this one 4 (out of 4). The only thing is that it says there is partial nudity.... so.... daddio will be all "NEVA!!!!!".


Makes me sad sad sad....

The partial nudity is on a couple of limp corpses, surprisingly no sex scenes involved. It's a sweet movie.

Cool! I'm more irish than I thought! Yay! So I can enjoy the last 8 minutes of the day... more fully?

25% Irish
25% German
50% Italian

I got to raise a few pints of Guiness this weekend, always a good thing. We had the traditional corned beef and cabbage, which was amazing!

Then on Sunday, my Italian side came out for St. Joseph's Day -plus my middle name is Joseph. It's an italian catholic thing, where all the italian bakeries sell St Joseph's day pastries. Myane this is just in the northeast, I'm not sure. If you haven't had them, you owe yourself the indulgence...

Of course there is also Oktoberfest, which is also my birth month, a great excuse for Sauerbrotten and German beer!
And now for something completly different...
