Today is St. Pats.
For those who are Catholic: Go ta Church ya bum, and stay out of the PUBS!
For those who are Irish: Stay at home! Read some history, sing some songs, and donate some money to Sinn Fein and stay out of the PUBS!
Ok, one caviat here. If you have a local and you go there every week to meet up with folks and have a couple, you are allowed to go to that pub only.
If you are not Irish, do what ever it is you do, or go go to TGIShenannigan's but stay out of my local. I am tired of trying to go down to one of the few pubs I go to to hang out with my old rugby teammates, and ending up packed to the gills with frat boys drinking green beer. I am tired of people turning a catholic holiday into an excuse to wear cheap crappy green garb, and get sh*thoused on budweiser and green food coloring. I think in order to go out and have too many on st. pats you should have to go to mass first. But then I'm a grumpy old man.
No computer this weekend as the wife was out of town. I have a laptop I've been trying to get up and rolling, but it was a big round-and-round of need drivers to operate the NIC, need to get drivers off the internet, need network connectivity to get drivers, need NIC to get to the internet.. and so on.
It was all quiet around the condo this weekend. I watched some movies (Sin City, Pumping Iron, Vision Quest, and lots of Firefly.. all of which I own) I did some drawing, which is not exactly stellar, but is good for my psyche. I plunked around on my banjo.. more of the same, and I generally spent some time to myself, which is good for me. I like hanging out with me.. I've been one of my best friends for years.
