This is a bit basic and they mispronounce the name of Rebel hero Patick Pearse, but the non-Irish may learn something:

I'm wearing a GL shirt today. I just hope it doesn't get ruined. I usually only wear black, because I run a printing press, and the ink just doesn't come out.

Since I took off today and tomorrow, I can't wear green at work. Instead, I wore my Ireland/Irish flag green shirt under my work shirt yesterday (you could see it though, since I keep the top buttons undone). One of the tellers at my bank yesterday told me, more or less, I wasn't allowed to wear green or be Irish until today, so I replied my family's been Irish since before St. Patrick was born.

Sucks that I slept in super-late (until 11) and had a bad headache, and I still feel exhausted, but I'll be fine. Just going to relax with some video gaming.

Happy St Patrick Day.

Go Green, or my case try to go green, but fail because you lack any green clothes right now. Ah well!

Did it work or do you need a new GL shirt now?

Wore my IRELAND text-and-flag green shirt yesterday to work underneath my work-shirt (had to clean the ovens as usual on Fridays, so I didn't want to dirty it and they were extra-nasty because I couldn't do them as the very large food order arrived early in the morning).

Just got back from my dad's. We went to a restaurant-bar because he wanted green beer. They didn't have any on offer. Food was okay. He kept insisting that, instead of sports, the bar should have K-Pop and then it would actually have people in it. My dad has a dangerous K-Pop obsession. I worry about him.

After we watched our film-of-the-week, he showed me a video of this guy installing (and playing) DOOM and Mario on a TI-83 Plus calculator. I shit you not.

My dad used to work the kitchen at Lake Powell and when they shut down for the off season he was always part of the deep cleaning to winterize the kitchen and the spring cleaning to bring it back in shape. I think he hated that more than any aspect of the work.

Grease is a massive bitch to get off. If you let it sit at all, especially over years of use, you can only replace it if you ever want that spot clean again. The oven windows and the wire racks, both of which I get as clean as I can, are noticeably dirty because the windows are two-pane (outside, inside) and the grease has gotten inside the actual door (because it's not airtight) and therefore I can't clean the actual inside of the panes; and the racks take a little while to scrub and if I try to get every inch of them, they'll take much longer.

Fucking hate doing the ovens.

Happy Saint Patrick's Day

I tried to find a good pic of one of Kyle Rayner's Irish references, but couldn't get one, so here's a leprechaun that appeared in vol. 1.



I happen to be teaching Sunday School at my church this morning and decided to cover St. Patrick and early Irish monks as a history topic.

In honor of a day with more green than Earth Day, I offer this, the most Irish of all foods:

Well, no rowdy parades or bar hopping today, but it honestly doesn't affect me since I'm pretty much going to do what I do for most SPDs--watch an Irish movie; listen to Celtic music, and maybe read a Yeats poem or something.



So, either way . . .

Happy Saint Patrick's Day!

I'm sitting at home on my couch, wearing a green tie over a t-shirt.

My mom cancelled her vacation to see my older sister because Key West has closed all bars and restaurants for 30 days. I might just barely have a semi-regular vacation in early May if all goes well.

I wanted to wear my "Ireland/Irish flag" green shirt, but remembered I had a much better shirt to wear. I dug through my closet and thankfully found it, still in very good condition after more than 18 years (I'll post the picture later, need to upload it to imgur).

Took my sweet time posting it to imgur, but here's my SPD 2020 shirt. Was a hit at work.
