I'm upset about it because it's the weekend my girlfriend and I decided to go to Madison, WI to visit some friends. My main plan for the trip was to go out, drink good beer and eat good food. Then I realized it was St. Pat's weekend and I thought, "Damn it all! Every bar will be swarming with "Kiss me I'm Irish" tshirt wearing idiots who probably aren't even Irish in the least!" Oh well, I'll make do and it'll still be a fun weekend. No Irish in me hence the not celebrating St. Patrick's Day thing I got going on. Don't really celebrate holidays that don't apply to me or my heritage.Haha! I don't like St. Patrick's day, but that was funny!
I suppose there are many things not to like about it, but a St. Paddy's Day celebration does not require drunken stooges vomiting in the street.
If I still have energy after the parade tomorrow, we will take the family to the Heritage Center for traditional music and Irish step dancing. And draft Guinness at $5 a pop.
I avoid the bar scene as that's just full of tools. Not that I go to bars much anymore anyway...
