Happy St. Patrick's Weekend everyone. I'm not sure when the day to honour Saint Patrick became an entire weekend, but it would probably be the fault of those corporate monoliths known as Standard Oil Coca Cola Hallmark Beer Companies.

Regardless, I'm going to be out spending Monday night drinking (which is why I've made this post 3 days beforehand).

As for running commentary...uh...hey look! Girls! As many have heard, there's murmers every once and a while about turning March 17th into a holiday, as they do in Ireland and, believe it or not, Newfoundland. [how do they spend stat holidays in Newfoundland? Going to work for a change of pace? -ed]. This is a really really stupid idea.

They should make the holiday March 18th, so we don't have to go to work hung over.
