Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Talking points:

jokes about the Japanese disaster -- too soon. Gilbert Godfrey, I'm looking at you.

religious meaning in Japanese disaster -- seriously, again? Does anybody ever learn? Why, oh why, must every crackpot tell us that God is punishing/disapproving/angry at us when something bad happens? So so tedious. File under category of not helpful and totally mean-spirited. I'd rather hear Howard Stern babble about why he doesn't need a lot of sex now.

Michelle's Spell of the Day
"May your pockets be heavy and your cares be light/ May good luck pursue you both day and night." Irish blessing

Cocktail Hour
Sunday night -- Detroit 187 season finale

Benedictions and Maledictions
Happy St. Patrick's Day! And a special hello to my dear friend Lee who is back in the blog world -- check out his new post!

Definitely too soon. If ever. The worst thing is they're not even funny

It's just wrong what people throw on the table when natural disasters happen. These goofballs are so obsessed with trying to get their beliefs and agendas across that they don't even see the devastation that ruins and take so many lives.
On a lighter note I love the Irish blessing. I was just listening to the "Irish Pub Favorites" on Pandora radio and heard the song "Drunken Sailor." Can you believe that was a song my 5th grade class performed at one of our choir assemblies. Thanks for the plug. Happt Saint Patrick's Day. Slainte!

Belle 'o the Ball-Firstly I love your wedgies! Do you remember them from back in the day? What goes around comes around a nice break from the spike heel that threated to flatten us on occasion. God does not work in that way-as us true believers know....xx
