TMI Thursday: Irish Eyes A’ Smilin’
1. Do you have any Irish in you? Would you like some?
Can’t you tell by my name? I was born a nearly pure blood Irish laddie (or lady, depending on who you ask) and I’ve definitely had some fun getting a little more in me along the way. But can you ever really get enough Irish in you? (If your answer is “No”, you should DEFINITELY come for a visit at Breen Acres. *Evil Grin*)
2. Do you wear green?
I do. Not necessarily or always on St. Patrick’s Day, and sometimes unintentionally when I DO where Green on St. Patrick’s Day, but I do so love the color Green. In fact, Green is my favorite color. Always has been. Green Lantern is my favorite superhero. Kermit is my favorite Muppet. “It’s not easy being green” is one of my favorite songs. Emerald Green is my birth stone and was the color of my class ring stone. Green rhymes with Breen. Jeffrey and I used to decorate for the holidays in purple and green.
3. Green beer is…
Hokey and so passé. I think, as true Irish man, I’m officially supposed to be offended by such things. I’m not, but I do tend to avoid cliché SPD things such as green beer, shamrock shakes and “kiss me I’m Irish” pins. Although I use to have a shirt that I LOVED which had “Mom. Dad. I’m Gaelic!” printed on it. That was always fun to wear.
4. Irish coffee is…
Not my thing. I like coffee. I like cocktails. I see no reason to mix the two.
5. Have you worn a kilt?
Yes. Borrowed from a friend while in P-Town one year to go out on the town. And, yes, I wore it properly. I would LOVE to own one and wear a kilt again. And I love men in Kilts (*take note, Jim @ Jim’s Stuff!*)
6. Have you gone to the NY St. Patrick’s Day Parade?
As I rule, I boycott SPD parades for two reasons. First, the parades have a history of banning lgbt groups from marching. Second, I find it undesirable to be out in public with large crowds of drunk, obnoxious people. If I want to watch people argue, fist fight and vomit on themselves and the road, I just have to come to work.
7. A folktale credits St. Patrick with having chased the snakes out of Ireland with a stick. How would you handle snakes?
Very carefully. If you get them too worked up, they’re likely to spray their venom all over your face…or chest…or down your throat…
I’m 100% Irish. Would you kiss me?
As far as I’m concerned, all men are 100% Irish that day so I say we all go on a kissing free-for-all (and let’s start with Jeep Guy!)
