Erin Go Braghless!

A wee taste of Ireland, for St. Paddy's Day. As it's a "high" holiday, I shan't be writing a proper blog at all. Instead, I'm putting the blog on autopilot and heading out for a few jars. Join me!












Sláinte!

Popeye had his spinach and Bogs has his "G". Behold picture 9 where Bogs single-handedly bars the Black Gate of Mordor!

I've heard it said there are two kinds of people in this world:

those that are Irish
and
those that wish they were.

I'll raise a jar of stout Irish ale to you at me local pub this fine Irish eve.

Here's wishin' I was Irish!

"that's one for me, and one for my homies..."

thanks, folks...

Erin go braless... good one!
Come over and see if you can find the leprechaun!

a) nice shirt

b) the temple bar. The bar. Everyone who drinks alcohol at all must drink a pint of guiness there before they die.

And that's an order.

Pete Bogs said...

infini - couldn't find the little bugger... but I plan to be "seeing" lots of things later today...

ard - best pint I've ever had was at the Guinness Gravity Bar... however, I will return to Dublin one day and imbibe at the Temple Bar...

Bogs, shona na fheile Padraig duit!
and 'Saint Patrick's Day, where everyone is Irish, except the gays and Italians. (Kent Brockman, The Simpsons)

I'll have me a dark one now.

Pete, thanks for the invitation to hoist a pint. I have some waiting in the fridge upon return to my humble abode. It is dark and soothing and oh, so smooth.

Will 5PM never come.

May the road rise up to meet you.

Oh Bawgs, thank you for the tour of the Emerald Isle. Brings a tear to the eye, it does.

ffff said...

Aww you beat me to it. I wazz gonna put a pic up of my Guiness. I had two in succession, didn't need to eat and fell asleep. Ahhhh.

Blue said...

Had a guiness for you Bogs (like you couldn't manage yourself lol).

Is that the Tardis?

Pete Bogs said...

ahhh... home for the night... it was a long evening, but an enjoyable one... more tomorrow, if/when I feel up to it...

Pete Bogs said...

whew, just now (1 PM) getting myself together to write something about last night... a very eventful evening indeed...

I consumed 80 ounces of brew, 16 of which were green... I'd never had green beer before - Guinness doesn't go green... but I had a green Harp and enjoyed it immensely...

some friends couldn't join me - there was nowhere for them to park!

three rather "butch" women were involved in a row, reportedly when one tried to get the attention of the other's girlfriend... paramedics, sheriffs and a bloody sidewalk were involved...

it's funny how women are so brazen just to walk right into the men's room when they really need to go... the line outside theirs was long, as it always is at events... as I said when I walked past their line, "it is nice to have a penis..."

cheers!

and you'll be pleased to hear that I'm just back form watching Ireland beat England at the rugby, to win the triple crown.
a perfect end to the st patricks day gig!

hope the green hangover clears

Pete Bogs said...

ard - that is great... now if they could just settle the Northern Ireland thing once and for all...
