St. Patricks Day 2016

St Patrick's Day 2016

This week for the writer’s workshop I am going to talk about what I will be doing today for St Patrick’s Day.  Not that I ever do anything special for it because since I don’t drink there really isn’t much to do.

One thing that I know, I will listen to one of my favorite musical groups Celtic Thunder. I found them a few years ago, and I have been hooked on watching and listening to their music for years. I also have gotten my grandparents and nephew into them.  On a side note, my nephew turned two this past November and one of the first things he said was Ireland, which always makes me laugh. Now whenever he hears their music or sees one of the DVD’s that I have he always says Ireland.

Since St Patrick’s day is during the week this year I am sure I won’t be doing anything other than working because most days it is all I  can do to get through work and I have no energy left to do anything after work.  If you are looking for something funny to watch you should watch this music video because it still makes me laugh.

I hope that you all have a great and safe St Patrick’s day this year!

1. On a scale of 1-10, how superstitious are you, honestly?
Probably like a 5 or so.
2. Julius Caesar is quoted as saying, “I came, I saw, I conquered.” Which circumstance or experience of yours does this saying best describe?
Everything in my life to be honest with you.  I feel as if I have had that attitude a lot because I haven’t had any options but to conquer things that are put in front of me.
3. If I peeked in on your day like a mischievous little leprechaun, at what time would I most likely find you blogging?
While I am at work or after work in the middle of the night when I should be sleeping.
4. Re springing forward for Daylight Saving Time, is there anything you’ve ever been really early or really late for?
I always try and be places early because if I am going to be late I don’t want to go at all.
5. What are you most looking forward to concerning Spring?
The warmer weather and being able to ride around town with my sun roof open on my car.
6. Shamrocks are the national flower of Ireland and are picked on St. Patrick’s Day and worn on the lapel or shoulder. Do you wear green on St. Patty’s Day?
Yes I do only because little kids take things to far if you aren’t wearing green.
7. One of Caesar’s assassins, Casca, said, “But, for my own part, it was Greek to me,” which of course means he didn’t understand something. Probably his own lines in the play. Anyway, what is something that is “Greek to you,” something incomprehensible or indecipherable?
How some people are such idiots and can keep making the same mistakes over and over again with out learning from them the first couple of times.
8. Is March behaving more like a lion or a lamb where you live?
Both-It is bi-polar like it always is.
9. “An extra yawn one morning in the springtime, an extra snooze one night in the autumn is all that we ask in return for dazzling gifts. We borrow an hour one night in April; we pay it back with golden interest five months later.” -Winston Churchill. If you had one extra hour per day every day, what would you do with it?
Sleep or at least try and sleep because I never get enough sleep that is for sure.
10. Legend says that every Leprechaun has a pot of gold hidden deep in the Irish countryside. Aside from real gold or money, what material item would be in your dream pot of gold?
A house of my own
11. “The best things are nearest: breath in your nostrils, light in your eyes, flowers at your feet, duties at your hand, the path of God just before you.” Robert Louis Stevenson. Look around you right now and tell us about something essential or beautiful very near you that you take for granted every day.
Misti-She is always there for me and some days I take that for granted.  I try not to but if someone is always there and you work with them it is hard to not take it for granted.  At least it is for me anyways.
12. Just for a bit o’ fun, click here  and then report your Irish name.
My Irish name is: Jacinta McNamara
