Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Brian’s been hitting the bottle (and the catnip) all day long. He’s a hot mess. Look at him, he can’t even stand up straight.

So how has your St. Patrick’s Day been thus far?

It’s snowy here. Again. At work there was another delay; which was good because I have a cold and getting up early this morning with all of the Benadryl I took last night, it would’ve been impossible.

But I really should have just taken the whole day off because 1. I am sick. 2. when I cleaned the snow off of my car, I locked my purse, phone and keys in the car. And the engine was running. I was not pleased, Par for the course, my friends.

So, what is the saying? Feed a fever starve a cold? Or is it the other way? Seems like unless my throat is really bad or if I’m nauseated, I feed it. I feed it all. I’m gonna go eat some Skyline Chili Dip and maybe have a hot toddy in a bit.

I hope Brian didn’t kill the bottle.

    Dude Brian looks like he could be an angry drunk, you better be careful and not cross him. Have a big ass bowl of Pho with chicken in it and skip the toddy if you can, booze can make it worse. I know how could booze make anything worse? but it can and maybe get some NyQuil, for at night and some Zycam for the day, Benadril is more for allergies. Can you tell I have been sick… a lot? Sorry I get kind of know it all about it but when you have been sick as I have you just can help it. Feel better and keep Brian close he will keep you warm.

    I like an occasional ‘Jemmy’ as it’s called here in Dublin. Puts me in mind of old Bill, the dispatch manager at an ad agency where I once worked. At one agency party to celebrate a big account win, Bill was drinking (necking) the Jemmy. In an effort to slow him down, the MD asked him if he would rather have it with something in it. His reply; “The only thing to put in a Jemmy is your tongue.” He passed out soon after.

      LOL. What a story!

      I have a question—do you celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in Ireland the way they do in the states? Or is it like Cinco de Mayo–a holiday that really isn’t all that big a deal in its native country, but advertisers then made a big to-do in order to sell booze in the US?

      We love having any reason to drink copiously.

        There is a bit of both about it. A large swath of the population goes out and gets roaring drunk. This conflicts with young families trying to show the young ones the marching bands and performers in the parades. The Gardai (police) usually sort it out quite well. Interesting that there are always numerous American marching bands and cheerleaders in the Dublin parade. Irony or what?

  5. I hope you feel better! That’s such a bummer about locking all your stuff in your car. I’ve done that, or something similar, more times than I can count.
