A guy came into the store today wearing this tee shirt. I have always been amused by the absurd and this just cracked me up. I don't know how or even if you celebrate St. Patrick's Day, but it seems to me that it is losing its popularity. Only a few customers seemed to be wearing green or things St' Pats. a couple of people mentioned it, but I just asked, "Oh, is that today?" We have a guy in the store who claims to be of Irish lineage, and at least once a day I hear him telling someone an "Irish" joke, usually followed by the explanation, "I can tell that because I'm Irish." I was expecting the worst from him today, but he was unusually subdued. I did hear him say that only an Irishman was too lazt to celebrate St' Paddy's Day, apparently in response to a question about his low-key nature today. In big news, though, my arch nemesis, "Double Starbucks Mocha, Don't F*ck with My Break" is quitting in either April or May. She's getting married, or so she claims. Woo-hoo! Things in this blog represented to be fact, may or may not actually be true. The writer is frequently wrong, sometimes just full of it, but always judgmental and cranky

I live in a place were everyone wears green and the heavy (noisy shrieking laughter) partying started about four this afternoon. I saw a couple of things i wish I hadn't and a lot of funny things before I walked home at dusk.

St Patty's feels like a celebration of spring after a long hard winter.

Ah ... so she can transfer her venom to her marriage. Yikes.

One of the comments on my blog yesterday was from a Dubliner. She says there St. Patrick's Day is a family holiday. They tell stories about Ireland and St. Pat, have a nice meal together and sing songs. She says only the young men get drunk. Hmmmm.

It seems to still be big around here. There was a 5 hour wait to get into one particular Irish pub apparently. I am of Irish decent and I could care less.

Love the shirt, though the idea of eating God is kind of mind-boggling. Is there actual substance to God? Would he be very filling? Or is he more of a vaporous spirit? Hmmmm...

Anyway, glad your coworker is moving on. :)

I'm so glad you are getting rid of the over-caffeinated female. Are you going to give her a wedding present (maybe a Starbucks giftcard)? :)

Definitely a cause for celebration after the fact...

Technically, if you're Irish, you don't have to wear green - everyone else does.

I had one Heineken and went to bed. I guess I got it all out of my system the night before.

That's a great T-shirt.

That IS a great shirt-- everyone is glad you're getting rid of that bad person, so I guess I am too. This morning I read this and thought of her nastiness towards you

Everybody is creating a space for you to be transformed - even those who think they are obstructing you, Even those whom you think are nasty.

I wonder what if anything a person like her, someone so venomous, who tells you not to F*ck with her, has anything to teach beyond, don't be anything remotely like me? Or maybe we can be glad most people are not like her. I don't know--it's a puzzle.
