St. Patrick’s Day Mix – 2009

st_patricks_day_chicago2Happy St. Patrick’s Day, Everyone!

Yes, I know it’s two days early.  But I have to get you while you’re still sober, right?  Or at the very least, while you’re not observing this most somber of holidays in Church, or gathered together with loved ones in prayer and strict observation of St. Patrick’s teachings. (1) Undoubtedly, as with all ethnic and religious events, the day will bring you a number of difficult thoughts and questions.  Some of these might be: “What possesses a man to drink that much green beer…or, any green beer for that matter?”, or “Why won’t Sully just leave me alone?”, or “When did everyone in the world suddenly become Irish? I know for a fact that that guy’s from New Jersey…” Or perhaps you’re just wondering who this Erin girl is and just what precisely it is that she is meant to go and do…

Well, I can’t answer these questions for you, but I can give you this little mix to keep you company as you ponder the day and all of its splendor.

Do try and go easy on the Guinness, all right?   Seriously, Jesus, Mary, Joseph, Sully, Kevin, Brian, Mikey, and I are all counting on you!

And remember: If anyone starts a sentence with “póg mo…” – Just start swinging. (2) 😉

Sláinte Mhaith!


  1. A note, as I know there has been some confusion: Whiskey is never an appropriate substitute for communion wine. Ever. [Back]
  2. And while we’re on the subject, any sentence beginning with “Well, the Yankees aren’t so bad…” [Back]

  1. As I was just telling the fine folks over on Geek Force Five, this list really is a way of guiding you on the (inevitable) journey from high energy to pensiveness to “crying in your beer.” Not quite “debauchery,” but hopefully satisfying. 😉 At least there are forward and back buttons, right? 🙂
