'yeah yeah, whatever, we're english, don't care blah blah blah' well, i care. so -
Happy St. Patricks Day!
Stupid Jesus and his stupid death and subsequent resurrection
Like, whenever it's someone's birthday on here, all the Welsh write 'Plennty lllong bird happooo' or whatever. The only Irish phrase I know I'm not allowed to say. And I can't spell it anyway.
la feile padraig shona duit
law fayla pawdrig hunna dit
and the RCC rules state that it can't be today, right? and that it was Saturday, yeah?
So today isn't the traditional day, is it?
And, to be more of a pedant, in some dioceses, it was actually yesterday.
Again, stupid Jesus
on whatever day the Roman Catholic Church says it is
that's typically speaking
someone 'When's St Pat's?' they'd say that it's on March 17th. So it kinda is.
the 'usual' and 'traditional' date is the 17th march.
this year it has been changed because it falls on today, the monday of Holy Week.
different dioceses seem to have celebrated on different days over the weekend.
my point is that there is absolutely nothing to celebrate today. apart from my ex step mum's birthday. and she's a cunt.
its march 17th. normally that's st patrick's day. it totally isn't tho, this year.
the Catholic Church so like, fukdah8rz.
Happy Saint Patrick's Day.
I'm currently frantically trying to make arrangements for the day. Most of my friends were at an 18th birthday party last night, while I was at work, so people are either hungover, or just impossible to get hold of.
I should probably wait till a bit later than 10am...lazy bastards.

GET OVER IT
IT JUST AINT NATURAL
to go to Kilburn tonight and drink Guinness until it comes out of my eyes. Happy paddy's day!
Does it matter that I'm not Irish?
As a side note, I had Guinness and Tia Maria for the first time recently. It's pretty fucking great.
but something that is vaguely related, for those who have never heard irish before, i'd be interested to hear what you think the language sounds like to you.
the above is a Dara O'Briain interview with Jonathan Ross, where they play a clip of a programme i used to watch called 'Echo Island'
I know a cracking pub called the sir colin campbells.
Looks like a night in, on the best night of the year. :(
I missed an 18th party last night, because I was working, and now everyone seems to be too hungover/broke to want to do anything.
