Leprechaun

St. Patrick’s Day began with the removal of a champagne bottle from the bookshelf beside my bed.

I wasn’t overcome with a spontaneous cleaning moment, more a safety precaution from the 4.7 earthquake that woke me up at 6:29 AM on my Monday morning.

My alarm is set to 6:30, but still every minute counts on the weekdays!

My emergency earthquake backpack I was forced to put together Monday morning. Inside is a blanket, an orange scarf, a large T-Joe's water bottle, and a Sea World half-zip purchased before the release of Blackfish.

The champs bottle is not from this never ending three-day holiday, but a college memento I occasionally glaze at before I go to bed and remember my glory days at the U of A.

Sigh.

Normally, I wouldn’t care about St. Patrick’s day because I really dislike the color green and dark beer, but this year my heart was somewhere else.

Another green drink to continue the never-ending holiday

This has become my weekly tradition for the past three months. It has been a great after work spot for chardonnay and a mini dinner of brussels sprouts and french fries.

We are on a first name basis with the bartender even though he refers to me by my alter-ego/legal name Elisabeth.

WTFE it makes me sound more irish.

We were elated when we saw the parking lot turned into a mini beer festival.

I won’t discuss my total beverage count for the evening, but every irish cocktail or beer out there, I had.

I don’t want to see the color green and any type of whiskey for a very long time.
