So in honour of the upcoming St Patrick's Day celebrations (and because I've left my camera, sans battery power, on my desk at work for the last week and didn't take any new pictures) I thought I would revisit my past St Patrick's Day's spent in Canada, surrounded by familiar faces- friends and coworkers, as well as the odd family member- and thus be able to compare and contrast my Canadian St Pat's to my first Korean St. Pat's experience. In case you couldn't tell, I take the day quasi-seriously and look forward to it every March (and promptly forget about it afterwards until the next March comes around).
So while I'm not 100% sure I want anyone to see these pictures I will nonetheless take the plunge for old time's sake. Maybe I'm missing my friends just the tiniest bit?
This was a depressing St Pat's for me, hence the bottle of merlot and the sombre expression. It fell on the same day as the biggest hockey game (and the only one I've ever cared about) of the year- at least for my old university house and our rival house. We lost. So sad. But the afterparties are good regardless.
This is how every St Pat's started at university. At 11 AM, at the Library Pub, usually with Jesse (who takes St Pat's more seriously than his schooling). This is the only time of year that I can drink guinness, too.
There you have it. I wonder if this year will be any different... what do YOU think? I'm especially interested in hearing from Amanda Smallwood. And sure, others can answer it if they so choose. Stay tuned.
OH before I forget, follow this link. It's really funny. I didn't know I wrote like a boy... how disquieting.
