10 Things I Learned About St. Patrick’s Day

  1. ShamrockBeer on St. Patrick’s Day is the same beer that you get any other day of the year.  It’s just green.  I don’t understand why if you’re not in college you would take a day off work to drink.  I guess I’m getting old.
  2. Bagpipes do NOT sound good.  Sorry to say but they do indeed sound like dying cats.
  3. Girls will take St. Patrick’s Day as an opportunity to dress slutty.  Apparently I need to read up on the history of  St. Patrick’s Day because I LOVE this part.
  4. People will look for the Irish pub they can find and set up shop.  If said pub isn’t Irish it doesn’t matter.
  5. Bars will open at 5:30 AM and serve beer.  People will be there waiting.  Apparently this is the only day of the year that you can drink beer in the morning.
  6. Everyone will wear green today.  It’s the law.  I’m not Irish and I’m not partaking in any St. Patrick’s Day festivities, and lo and behold, I STILL have a green shirt on.  I didn’t even think about it when I got dressed this morning – it just happened.
  7. Between March Madness and St. Patrick’s Day essentially nothing gets done this week.  I’ve learned to roll with the punches.  I’m doing my part by blogging at work.
  8. The following beers are good all year round.  Please don’t limit your consumption to one day.  If you do you’re doing yourself a great disservice: Murphy’s, Beamish, Smithwicks, Harp, and Guinness.
  9. Jennifer Anniston’s first movie was The Leprechaun.  It’s a terrible movie but one that I’ve watched many times because I love horror movies and Jennifer Anniston is hot.
  10. Regardless of the fact that they are the “Fighting Irish”, Notre Dame still sucks.

    • I don’t blame you Heather. Regardless of the content here, I’m sitting in the office wondering why I’m not sitting next to you with a beer 🙂
