Today, however, is Paddy's Day and needs its own internetzing.
Since I promised my mama I wouldn't dye my hair any outlandish colours again, my greenery (hah) is confined to my nails. Certainly not classy brands, but green and glittery are always en vogue, yes?
One of my housemates may have sold himself into slavery last night, as he was paid 30e to spend the night in a hotel and push a float in the parade today. We shall see.
After wading through oceans of drunk children last year, I've decided to stay as far away from the parade as possible.
I'm running off to go to a celebratory barbeque at some friends' house, where we will have a bird's-eye view of the mess that is Temple Bar.
Afterward, another friends (and quite possibly the loveliest person I know) is making me dinner. We shall then watch The Three Amigos and possibly Mystery Men. Do you remember this gem? I didn't, and I am currently basking in its rediscovered glory.
Observe the extended opening scene with my love. (Not the only reason I'm loving it, as I had no idea who he was when the film came out. 'Bonus.')
Not going to lie, I'll probably have another post dedicated entirely to this film, complete with some loose attempts to call it studying.
The prospect of heading into City Centre right now is terrifying. Wish me luck.
