I don't drink beer so the green beer thing has never been a draw for me. I just have never been able to acquire a taste for it. I don't drink coffee either unless it's flavored coffee with some yummy caramel vanilla (or other yummy) creamer in it. Yeah, that's really fattening, so it's not often I do that either. But still...
In Columbia, SC, they do a weekend long event that will be this weekend. They kick it off the weekend before by dying the fountain at Five Points near the University of South Carolina green every year. I have never been, but I've heard it's a real blast. They even have their own website for the event. Apparently, they take their Irishness a bit more seriously than I even realized.
Do your states do similar fun things? I know Chicago dies their river green. What do you all do? Is St. Patrick's Day a fun thing for you? Some lifetime I am soooo going to Ireland. That is one of the places I always wanted to go, but we never did when we lived in Germany. From everything I've seen, it's such a beautiful country. And who can't love a country known for enjoying their spirits? I mean, I'm not going there to find a new liver.
And stay tuned for a new look here at Talkative Taurus. I am so excited that it's about to roll out anytime now! I can't thank the ladies who have been helping me enough, but I will attempt to by pimping them now and later..
Go show Amy at This House Gets Crazy At Three O'Clock
and Amber at Amber LaShell Rants some serious love. These ladies have been putting up with my pickiness and helping me above and beyond the call of duty. Thanks so much, ladies! It truly means the world to me that you'd help pretty up this joint.
So everyone, enjoy your St. Patrick's Day! Have a cocktail or green beer in my honor, as I plan to do the same for you. I'm a giver like that. (Notice I showed you the pooch way to do St. Patrick's Day. You knew I had to be original about it!)
