Are you wearing green today?

I have a deep green dress shirt that I can really only wear one day of the year. I forgot to wear it today. I’m wearing a Gap T-shirt with some green in the design so I’m safe from getting pinched. (Not that a whole lot of that goes on around here. The engineers just aren’t that attractive!)

How are you dressed to celebrate today?

Bonus Mundanity: I received notice today of a financial windfall. I’m gonna buy myself that 12-string guitar I’ve been wanting for a loooong time. Before Mrs. Pluto and the Plutinos can squander the cash on nonessentials like food and clothing.

I have some very green weed and I think I know where I put my green food colouring for my beer,and NO I won’t share my stash with you teeming doper millions…get your own :slight_smile:


And that’s no way to make friends, Spliffy. I WOULD have shared these Peanut Butter Kandy Kakes with you, but now you can just ferget it. :stuck_out_tongue:

I like it here-can I stay?
And do you have a vacancy for a Back-scrubber?

I completely forgot to wear green today, but that’s OK. I drank some Guinness last night, and I plan to drink more this afternoon. Whoohooo!

Plutinos. I like. I figure that I’m Irish every day, so I am exempt from wearing green. As my mom is wont to say:
You can’t be Irish without knowing the world will break your heart by the time your 30.
How’s that for a pick-me-up?

I’m green every day. Goshdarnit!

Yep, wearing green today. And I’ll kick anybody who puts dye in my beer. Slainte!

Ask the Gay Guy!

I’m wearing my Green Lantern T-shirt. And eating Lucky Charms. With Guiness.

I am not wearing green. I am not going to wear green. And you can’t make me.

I felt like such crap this morning, I just threw on the most comfortable outfit. Like someone else said, I’m Irish every day. I don’t need to wear green today.

I agree with the girls…Irish blood in the veins absolves you from the necessity of any spurious March 17 celebration.

I did, however, read Yeats with my daughter on the way to her school this morning.

…Too long a sacrifice
Can make a stone of the heart.
O when may it suffice?
That is Heaven’s part, our part
To murmur name upon name,
As a mother names her child
When sleep at last has come
On limbs that had run wild.
What is it but nightfall?
No, no, not night but death;
Was it needless death after all?
For England may keep faith
For all that is done and said.
We know their dream; enough
To know they dreamed and are dead;
And what if excess of love
Bewildered them till they died?
I write it out in a verse–
MacDonagh and MacBride
And Connolly and Pearse
Now and in time to be,
Wherever green is worn,
Are changed, changed utterly:
A terrible beauty is born.

– “Easter 1916”


Esprix, come a little closer so I can smack the s**t outta you. :slight_smile:
I am Irish every day, as well, but I always wear green on St. Patrick’s Day. In fact, I am wearing a green turtleneck, and a green headband with shamrocks on it, and a green jacket.

You can put all the green dye you want in my beer. I drink Guinness, you’d never know the difference. But, please, keep the green bagels away from me. Nothing less appetizing in this world than green bread.

My green Irish eyes are quite enough for me. Besides, I think there is still a little green in my hair from the last time I dyed it.

The Irish in me wants to, but the German in me won’t allow it.

I’m not wearing any green.
But I am dressed subtly Irish.

Black t-shirt, tan pants.

I’m a Black and Tan.

…plus the green eyes.

I’m plenty more Irish than the rednecks getting drunk in Savannah drinking green Bud or Killian’s Irish Red.

Yeah, my fishnets stalkings are lime green and go very nicely with my purple spandex.

I really try to be good but it just isn’t in my nature!

i wore white socks with little green clovers on them, yes, yes i did.

if wishes were fishes, we could walk on the ocean.

Dammit! You stole my line!

Actually, I am wearing green socks.
