Post St. Partick's Day Parade = Sobriety Test

Don't hit the curbs and you pass.

How was everyone's favourite Irish holiday? Green was spotted everywhere in school, socks, tops, bottoms, even hair.

On my way driving to the University today I got to see crowds of people dressed in green flooding into the bars. It was like 7 in the morning. My classes were fairly empty, but nobody showed up plastered, which is a shame, I like to watch the drunkerds try to survive class.


Just because people think what I say don't make sense, doesn't mean I don't like popsicles.

I don't celebrate that holiday. To me, it's as hallmark as Valentines is.


There's no earthly way of knowing which direction we are going. There's no knowing where we're rowing or which way the river's flowing. Is it raining? Is it snowing? Is a hurricane a-blowing? Not a speck of light is showing, so the danger must be growing. Are the fires of hell a-glowing? Is the grisly reaper mowing? Yes, the danger must be growing 'cause the rowers keep on rowing, and they're certainly not showing any signs that they are slowing. AAAGGHHH!!!

I had to cancel my plans as i've had a tooth extracted and ain't aloud to drink alcohol for a few days

I'd arranged for about 20 of us to go to an Irish bar wearing guiness top hats

Ah well, got aload of mates round tonight in my house, so i won't need alcohol.

I was planning of going out last night with ther rest of my friends, even got all dressed up and everything (you know, green t-shirt and whatever else happened to be clean).

Then I realised I had no money (in an extremely literal sense), so I stayed in and watched Bowling for Columbine instead.

His Bush one was crap, far too opinionated but Bowling was amazing.

There is a time zone difference, Fealiks. His friends probably arent there at that time.

Granted, but despite that, the first half was alright, very... informative. But yeah, Bowling was still way better.

The Bush one was okay; it just wasn't very subjective. Anybody, no matter your values or who you are, could interpret Bowling for Columbine and apply your own theories and ideas. With Farenheit 9/11, you really either felt one way or the other.

I can at least ad mit that it made me hate bush more than I did before (actually, I didn't hate him as much before watching that, I just didn't really like him that much)

With Bowling, I came to the conclusions that Canada is a nice place to live in, Dick Clarke isn't very friendly, not is charlton heston, and I really don't want to live in a place where guns are a neccesity in order to be safe.

I like America. >_> Our government is fine, even if it is a bit nosy.

Nope. I like America a lot, but not a big fan of the authority here.

Now there's that new Social Security option. Not only are gas prices going up twenty cents a month, but now I probably won't retire, with investments are the devil.

I'm actually probably going to move to Canada or Australia anyway....

Englands okay, I go to university in the crime capital of the north east and even that's not so bad, a few burgleries every now and then, nothing too serious compared to the worst of the states.

Then again, I'm still not too sure whether I want to stay here for the rest of my life... I'll see how life takes me.

Even if I found some beautiful utopia, I don't think I'd want to live just one place for the rest of my life.

I don't know, if I was shown a place which offered unlimited free fried chicken which tasted good, had 0% fat and didn't clog up my arteries, I may reconsider leaving that place... ever.

Ahh, dream on Neil

If that chicken utopia threw in some perfectly healthy bacon, and allowed P2P downloading of anime, I'm in.

Fealiks, if you count your hours by someone else in the forum, that's sad and it means you have no life outside the computer.

You lucky bastard.
