As you might (332) know, tomorrow shall (les eaux) be St. Patrick's Day.
I will (me) unfortunately be working but I shall (...) definitely not be sober starting 5 o'clock onwards (just like 99.9% of the Irish population). What are your plans for the green day ?
P.S : I heard Teahan and Shamrock747 are dressing up as leprechauns

Quoting Cptkrell (Reply 12): BTW, I hear there were no snakes in Ireland, green is not a particularly favorite color in Ireland, and St. Patrick's name was even Patrick. ny truth to that? Regards...Jack
It's true that there are no snakes, in point of fact the diversity of animals in both Britain and Ireland is substantially less than in mainland Europe (because they're islands!); can't really comment on the popularity of green, except to say that the country is green, the flag is partly green, their international sports teams play in green etc etc; St Patrick's given name was Maewyn, and he was actually Welsh!
