Irish Blessing
How could you not?

How could you not?

Don’t be fool by the Mouse with Big Ears

This Irish “shite” is mad scary. Nightmares for months as a child! Also, made me fear anything white because the ghost in the movie (oh, there is a ghost or fairy warlock or something) materializes out of white walls, or is white, or something to do with white. All I know is that when I google imaged this bastard, I dry heaved for a second of two.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day week

This may be EXACTLY how I want my Birthday Cake to look….

Here we are salivating once again at the thought of consuming delights. Times like these I wish I had a kitchen. Now it’s only 5, 4 , three days until the glorious moments I step on the Isle of Manhattan and I can’t think of a better way to get excited that to eat. These are our childhoods in a (cupcake) cup. Allow me…. Remember those McDonald’s Minty Shamrock Shake Swirls? Well here they are, but at this point, you can sink you chompers into them. So grab and Irish coffee and kick back, we’re only 72 hours/beers away…

Not your typical Irish bar…

But it was a bar, and it was in Dublin, Ireland. Johnny and I were traveling through Dublin and we stumbled across this place; we had it to ourselves and took full advantage of the Happy Hour special. We also convinced ourselves that we would come back for our birthdays and bring all our friends and it would be a private party…. due to lack of other patrons (but our friends would just think we were rich) Epic Win. Here’s to Guinness in da’ club….

Slainte! That’s Gaelic for ”Cheers” to all you Yankees….

To cure a fever, place the person on the shore when the tide is coming in. When the tide begins to go back out, the retreating waves will carry away the disease and the fever.

Irish Superstition

The shoe of a horse or an ass nailed to the doorpost will bring good luck. However, it must be found and not given by another person.

It is not safe to pick up an unbaptized child without making the sign of the cross.

Old Irish Superstition 

Days Until Operation Irish Adventure

Well first there was 365 

Now we got 200, 75, 30, 10, 7 days. Seven glorious, lushly green days until I take off for the equally green jungle of glorious New York. 

Be prepared for many, many pictures of Dublin until the Feast of Saint Padraig

Lovely day for a….

As an homage to my forefathers, and their forefathers and their pessimistic mothers with wide side hips, I will be doing a countdown to St. Patrick’s Day, using blessings, superstitions and charming sayings. Today’s superstition is:

If you want to know the name of the person you are to marry, put a snail on a plate sprinkled with flour. Cover the plate and leave it overnight. In the morning the initial of the person will be on the plate, traced by the snail.

Thank god we made whiskey and Guinness or else everyone would hate us (read: like they do the French)
