Happy St. Patrick’s Day

16 March 2007


ROG has let himself go a little

Yeah, so I’m a day early, but I won’t be here tomorrow. So instead we are going to pretend that tomorrow is today. Which of course means only one thing. Rugby!

Oh and some parades and stuff.

There are construction workers all over the shop, hard at work Prep- Man At Work putting up the fun fair. And the luminarium. And probably a lot of other stuff. Even one of the sex adult shops nearby has decorated for St. Patrick’s day. Which strikes me as slightly odd. I mean are leprechauns sexy? I’m shuddering having just typed that. And now thinking about that episode of The Simpsons, you know the one with the fortune teller who puts a curse on the family and Bart drowns in a bowl of cereal? And the leprechaun gets it on with the fortune teller, right there on the wedding alter. Sex and leprechauns, who’d’ve thought it was so commonly represented in modern pop culture.[1]

I’ve decided to take Tues off as well, so a lovely long weekend for me. I just couldn’t face the hassle of travelling back to Dublin on Bank Holiday Mon. I’m also thinking that a fair few students are going to show up on Monday, surprised that the college aint open. I’d make my usual “furriners” snort of amusement, only a couple of the Irish girls have mentioned coming in to study then. So instead I’ll just go with a more ethnically inclusive snort of “idjits”

In more disturbing news[2] it appears that there may be snow this weekend.

Snow is possible on high ground in parts of Ulster and Connacht. Still very cold on Tuesday, but not as windy or as shower

Dude! Cad faoi sin. I mean, I know it only says chance, and we all know that chance’d be a fine thing, but still. Snow, after St. Patrick’s day? What is the world coming to?

Also, is this not the coolest thing ever: OCLC’s Dewey Web Browser.
Okay, maybe if you aren’t a librarian it isn’t as cool. But look, you just stick in some book details, like Blink Gladwell and it shows you exactly where it gets the Dewey number from. Coola-boola. Course, if you put in something like Michael Collins then you’ll see why some people think the DDC needs to be looked at again, as after clicking on the history option, and then the European option you get to see that “British Isles” is listed, but not Ireland. Oooooh, contentious.
