Afternoon! I completely forgot today is St. Patrick’s Day. Another sign I am getting old and pathetic. St. Patrick’s Day used to mean a day of drinking green beer, but now it’s just another work day.
Pittsburgh KNOWS how to do St. Patrick’s Day. They close off an area of downtown called Market Square and proceed to throw a huge block party. Drinking green Miller Light from plastic steins is highly encouraged.
St. Patrick’s Day in Market Square 2006:
Me and my BFF Sarah… Yes, my hair is red and it’s short! And we’re really tan for Pittsburgh in March because we had just gotten back from Spring Break in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Man, my life RULED back then.
My other BFF Bethany.
Sarah, me, my friend Igor, and Abe Lincoln (not sure what he has to do with St. Patrick’s Day):
Wow — looking at those old pictures made me feel really old and lame. We went out last year for St. Patrick’s Day to downtown Orlando, but it just wasn’t crazy like Pittsburgh. Those were the good old days!
Mid-morning snack: WW shredded cereal.
Lunch: an AMAZING salad!
My salad contained:
- Baked Polenta Crotons
- Shredded Grilled Chicken
- 2 Grilled Pineapples
I love grilled pineapple!
How do you celebrate St. Patrick’s Day? Cabbage soup? An Irish Car Bomb? Green clothing? A fake Irish accent? Green beer?
