That is all.
I need to be in a pub in London in an hour, and I'm still in bed. Damnit.
that I will not be consuming alcohol during this day.
And to you.
I need to go and buy some flowers for my mother now.
You think she would mind if I got her some Guinness instead?
Its like a five day piss-up isn't it?
And what do we do for St George's Day? FUCK ALL.
Then again, I guess it'd be xenophobic or something if we did anything. During Euro 2004, Burnley Police were asking people to take those tacky England flags off the sides of their cars in the local paper.
So a full-blown National holiday would probably cause outrage.
why is it that in britain we cant seem to do nationalism without being racist fucks?
its never usually the minorities themselves that hit out at things like England flags on cars. More often than not, its holier-than-though white people that want to look accepting and kind etc.
They're worse than Al Quaeda.
that annoys me. it makes everyone angry at muslims when they haven't even complained.
These idiots who think they're improving race relations are doing just as much damage as people like the BNP.
The thing is, those stories get more coverage than the average BNP person talking about how bad Islam is. And so its possibly worse in the long run.
wooo! lets celebrate carling!! erm, no....
but yes happy st patricks day one and all. off to the pub in an hour for lots of yummy guiness and a stupid hat no doubt.
best thing about St Patrick's Day=free novelty hats with guinness
but I still insist on a new one each year. It's a mission every year, to get as many as possible. In fact, I best get out sharpish they usually run out by about 3 o'clock!
There were people wandering around Edinburgh with stupid Guinness hats on. i wanted to destroy them.
if you want to get drunk, get drunk. whenever. jaysus.
Its a national holiday. Its like a birthday that everyone celebrates, yknow. We have about 2 every year, and they're both in December.
Is it such a crime to want one more, or are we pushing the xenophobic boat out a little?
that's all. it's quite artificial to try to get people feeling patriotic. doesn't serve much of a purpose. community street parties and suchlike would be cool though. but who needs a reason?
that's all I have to say.
that is all
I <3 the black stuff
I have a mate who can do it in under 7 seconds. Sick.
how's the getting drunk with your bro going?
so I bought him a pint the other day. It was impressive but awful at the same time.
My brother isn't even here yet, he is useless/kinda lost. However when he does get here will be buying all my drinks. :D
a little bit quicker
I can pretty much down anything
I'm well Irish.
Mate: So when's the birthday party tonight?
Me: About 4 I think.
Mate: Good. Got any Guiness?
Mate: Bad show!! It's St. Patrick's day!!
Me: Yeah but I'm not Irish, nor is anybody here...
Mate: Fair enough.
Me: That said, y'know.. feel free.
Sorry to spoil the mood, but I don't really get why most of England now celebrates Ireland's Saint's day. Whut digs?
What a result.
Come on Scotland!
I'd have thought that was obvious.....
"22/25" was when Italy had scored the try, but not yet converted it.
I also mistakenly thought that it was 3 points for a conversion. Which explains the oddness....
