Happy St. Patrick's Day, kids!

I will gush about the ball once more in another post.
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.

  1. Happy St. Patrick's day, darling!

  2. Oh tom waits.... you sexy hunk of man you. Rrraow.

    cute nails! I am in the unlucky position that I look TERRIBLE in green. so I struggle every patty's day to find some shred of green ribbon to prevent myself from getting pinched.
    Whoever decided that pinching strangers would make a good tradition, CERTAINLY isnt getting any gold stars in my book.

  3. Hope you had a great day! I've never seen either of those movies beore, but maybe I'll have to check them out!


  4. I hope you had a great St. Patrick's Day! Love the green nail polish :)

  5. Thank you all so much! Paddy's Day was quite magical, despite of the madness, and I hope that you can all say the same for yours. :]

    @Lillian: That man's fox factor knows no bounds. I don't think there is any instance in which he could be unattractive.
    Also, I have a very difficult time believing that any colour could not suit you, pretty lady. I'm glad that you were able to avoid pinching, though!

  6. This looks like so much fun!
    And you look fantastic!
    (You have beautiful red hair BTW)

  7. Oh my gosh, St. Patrick's Day in Ireland must be a blast!!!
