EVERYBODY IS IRISH ON MARCH 17


We are on our way to Las Vegas to visit my sister and celebrate St. Patty's Day. Actually our celebrations will be rather pathetic for several reasons:

1. I don't drink beer
2. I won't eat corned beef
3. Cabbage makes the house stink, therefor I will not cook it

A friend of mine was talking about why we even celebrate the holiday and all I could think about was that we just love the Irish. For whatever reason they have portrayed a jolly bunch that just has a lot of fun in a beautiful country. I just read on Wikipedia why we really celebrate it.

BUT... I am very excited because we are going to see Flogging Molly at House of Blues tomorrow night. WAHOO! I've seen them several times before and they never cease to entertain. It will be a great show, even though we had to pay outlandish Ticketmaster fees that equaled the cost of our tickets. Lame. But their new album is great and I've been listening to it like crazy. I hope the weather cooperates. It is a little blustery out right now. I figure if we get about 150 miles south it will be okay. There temperatures are a little warmer in the south. I'll be back next Thursday. I may check in from LV, but I also may not. Happy Irishing!

Yay! I'm so jealous you will be seeing Flogging Molly. We didn't get a chance to see them when they were here in December, but Tim saw them a while ago with his friends. I'm glad to hear their new CD is good, I'll be off buying it soon.

Have a great trip and enjoy the warmer weather!

You're so punk rock! (and every time I see the phrase "Assorted Jellybeans" I still think of you)
