she's still irish

reason #281 why my job is better than your job - our offices close today to let the staff celebrate saint patrick's day.

alexa - 1
you - 0

as you are reading this, possibly sitting at your desk, i'm drinking green beer downtown on this gloriously warm cleveland day. i'm watching the parade, trying to play somebody's bagpipes (twss), dancing a jig, wearing some sort of irish flair pretending i'm the tallest leprechaun in the world - not necessarily in that order.


hell, i may even place a temporary glitter shamrock tattoo on my cheek and spray paint my hair green.

psyche.

i'm sure i'll come back here tomorrow and tell you all some crazy debauchery stories, but in the meantime check my twitter, maybe i'll throw up a twitpic or two.

also to get you pumped for SPD (that's st patrick's day according to ang), i have to share the 25 second video i took last SPD at my office party of my friend bird irish dancing.

there's a ridiculously annoying drunk girl singing a made up song in the background. i wonder who it could be?





anyone doing anything fun today to celebrate?

  4. While you're partying, I'm sitting in my stuffy office. No fair! I want to work for your company. :) Have a great day off!

  5. I don't Twitter. Then again, I don't do St. Patrick's Day, either. So, I guess it doesn't matter. But, I'm quite certain you'll have fun regardless!

  10. I can't believe your office is closed today! I'm definitely jealous. And I'd rethink NOT getting that temporary glitter shamrock tattoo. I hear they're all the rage. Extra glitter.

  19. yes! first i got my teef drilled. then I found out i needed crowns. then I went to work. after work i see the hot chiropractor. then I go to see a VERY good friend I haven't seen in FOREVER for st. patty's day/b'day festivities. then i'm going to go bother bloggers in DC. Unless the b'day festivities run too late and I just gotta jet home after. We shall see.

  20. Um, yeah, I think you get more like 100 points for that one. I am sitting here at work thinking, "BAH!! It's ONLY TUESDAY." I'm. So. Jealous. Of. You.

    So jealous, in fact, that I'm tempted to call you a butthead and any other number of childish, immature names. You go have your fun and beer and free time, but just remember the little people (not the leprechauns; I'm sure they're having fun, too) who still have to work. :-P

  21. If I didn't get 5 weeks of vacation a year I would be sooooo pissed.

    You will be very missed at our impromptu DC blogger meet up tonight! That's how we DO!

  25. a) i hate you a little
    b) that video is TOO AWESOME FOR WORDS.

    ReplyDelete
  26. the only thing keeping me from hating you (a little) right now is the fact that i work nights and tuesdays are always slow, so i don't have to go in.

    does ang give jig lessons?

  27. I don't know, coming into work today was totally worth the green cupcake I got at our St. Patrick's Day party.

    ReplyDelete
  28. i wish my st. patty's day plans were as awesome as yours. i expect an awesome update tomorrow. sweet, thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I cannot believe your office closes for St. Patty's Day. I love you, but you suck.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Wow, our office gets some random holidays off, but we've never been so lucky as to be off on St. Patrick's Day - must be nice!

  33. I'm so jealous. I went to work and then I had some drinks with a client from Japan - we did karaoke, I did drink a Guinness though.

    And on Saturday, I watched Rugby at a pub all morning.

  34. I spent the day at a St. Paddy's day-themed Santa parade and it was all work-related. So I guess that's the next best thing to getting off work?
