Happy "Everyone's Conveniently Irish" Day

On days of great feasting and celebration, I always turn to my Blogling roll to see who might be sharing in the festivities.

This morning, I looked to InedibleInk, thinking, "Surely the devout Catholic blogger has to have something on St. Patrick." But no. He's probably still recovering from dropping the children off at school, most likely having been pinched by all of them.

Then, I turned to J.Phillip at Red Guy. Sorely disappointed there too. Come on, people....it's "everyone gets a free pass to act like a pinching lush" day.

Then, I thought, in the off-chance that John (surname-less) the Pirate is Irish, maybe HE has something on the annual occasion. Yes! I struck gold. Mr. Pirate not only has some great advice for us all, but he informs his readers that I'm one hot little potato according to Star magazine. That's right.

Then, it dawned on me to check the site that prominently featured a "Mc" in it. And, never one to let his festive audience down, Mike McClellan directs you to a St. Patrick's Day dedicated post. (Apparently, my circle of bloggers favors passing the torch...see: this entire post. We're a humble, generous group.)

More epic disappointment when I check The Night Writer. Okay, so maybe epic's an overstatement because there's a highly anticipated "Friday Fundamentals in Film" post. So, you're off the hook.

Never to be accused of slackerage (new word), Blogizdat has a demented leprechaun/troll on his site. A must see.

Further breaking my non-Irish heart, MacStansbury, MAC-Stansbury's got two March 17 posts and no talk of rainbows, gold or Lucky Charms.

Lisa at R Cubed doesn't have a Saintly post, but she does inform us that March is "Play the Recorder" month, to which I kindly encourage everyone NOT to participate in. Too Simpson-esque. ("And now, with a flute up his nose...")

Marc's got some geeky shortcuts for us all, but they won't lead you to four leaf clovers. (I'm running out of Irish references.)

That about wraps up this long I-don't-want-to-write-about-St. Patrick-myself post. Happy St. Patrick's Day! Go pinch someone who's not wearing green. My dad was my first victim. It was a risky move, in that I wasn't wearing green either, but my cat-like reflexes got me out of the situation to run and quickly change into an emerald green outfit, which really only delays the inevitable. He's always watching.

UPDATE: Mr. Writer (or John) has issued his official St. Patrick's Day post at my behest, apparently. It has one of my favorite titles to ever have graced the blogosphere. :)

I'll have you know I've been hunting down my historic Irish post, about the flag and the orange and the green, but it's evading me. I'll find it, though.
