St. Patrick’s Day Pictures

Sparkles and bunny ears are fun.

(More pictures below the fold…..)

A tiny beer mug, yet still so functional.

Green beer only tastes good on St. Paddys.

Jello shots, anyone?

My friends are weird.

I’m not very good at quarters.

    No thanks – sounds nasty. And what’s up with the green beer? I need to check up with some people I know in Dublin, but I am fairly sure that they don’t colour their beer – so why would Americans do it?

    Jello shots are decidedly un-nasty. If you’ve never tried them, your loss! As for green beer, who knows but pretty much every bar has that kind of thing on St. Paddy’s. Just food coloring, and usually cheap. I know there’s some river in the US that they dye green on St. Paddys (in Boston perhaps?)…..

    St. Paddy’s day here, I’m pretty certain, has little to nothing to do wish anything Irish. Other than drinking and wearing green, the traditions are pretty different.

    Kristjan We Americans do it – becasue we can! Erin Go Braugh!
    So, I went to a new to me “Irish Pub ” in the Chicago area. Fun times, the proprietor went from table to table saying hi, and there was music, drinks and good cheer. No pics though! Yours look like you had fun to, so there you go!

    BTW – Whatever happened to your New PC story ? Does it have a happy ending?

    J-O’Dog. Hehe. 🙂

    Well, I think I need to go through the comments and weigh out what I need from a computer and see which camp has got that. Obviously the big drawback is that Macs are expensive, so I’ll just have to see if the extra expense is well spent on something that I’ll use. Either way, I’m gonna run this Averatec into the ground if possible. So I’ll likely research another month or so and hope the craptacular PC I have now lasts.

    I don’t drink much on St. Patty’s anymore. Too much like amateur nite. Not for serious drinkers like self. 😉 (the real reason is that I like my beers dark, and they don’t show green well)
