No pinching; I’m wearing green!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Shoutout to my good friend (and ex boyfriend) T, who is part of the Seattle Gaels, a hurling club. They’ll be strutting their Irish stuff in the St. Paddy’s Day Parade here in Seattle. The Gaels are also holding a field day next weekend… If you’ve got Hibernian blood and dig hitting stuff with sticks, you should check it out. They’ll be at Magnolia Field in Seattle from noon to 3:00pm on Sunday March 26. Check out their website here: O’Linky
Here was T’s pickup line all those years ago:
T: "Have you got any Irish in you?"
me: "No."
T: "Would you like some?"


  1. Nothing like hurling on the field and then going to the pub getting blotto and then hurling in the streets.  In fact, nothing like "His" and "Hers" Hurling!!!!!!
    Well, in honor of St. Patty’s Day I’m changing an old standby joke to make it "appropriate".  Note:  coarse humor alert…turn back now, if you don’t like coarse jokes.  For those that don’t mind…read on.
    Paddy was a dirt poor Irish immigrant. One day while walking through the fields he discovered an old lamp. He started to polish it and out came a genie who told him that for freeing him from the lamp he would grant Paddy one wish.Paddy thought for a few minutes before declaring, "I am a poor simple man with simple needs, therefore I wish that Paddy pee whiskey!" The Genie exclaimed that Paddy’s wish was granted and disappeared in a poof of smoke.Paddy runs home and bursts through the door yelling, "Wife, bring two cups…tonight we drink whiskey!!!"  Paddy pees in the cups and sure enough, it’s the best Irish whiskey either had ever tasted. They drink into the wee hours of the morning.The next night he comes through the door and again hollers, "Wife, bring two cups….tonight we drink whiskey!!!" This continues all week until St. Patricks Day evening when Paddy comes in the door and exclaims, "Wife, bring me one cup!!!"His wife is upset and asks, "Paddy, all week you say bring two cups and we drink whiskey, so why tonight do you only ask for one cup?"Paddy smiles and replies, "Ah me lass to celebrate this special holiday, tonight you’ll drink from bottle!!!"
    Enjoy the rest of your holiday.
