Knick Knack Paddywhack

I rolled out of bed this morning, dressed myself from head to toe in mismatched shades of green, high-hoed it to Carrolls' Irish Gift Shop to purchase some of those flattering shorts with the fake arse cheeks hanging out the back (póg mo thóin scrawled across them in homage to the Oirish language) had some chugger paint shamrocks on my cheeks and forehead, climbed onto the roof of a phonebox down at College Green, heckled the Americans below as they jostled for a vantage point from which to view the parade and then hightailed it to a packed Temple Bar pub to spill Guinness, sing offensive rebel songs and drink til I fancied Burger King.

Oh no, wait...

I got up, met my brother, strolled into town to marvel at the efforts that everyone else had gone to to celebrate our national holiday and then headed to Da Pino's for a pizza (the remains of which are reheating in the oven as I type - aubergines, broccoli, pepperoni, chillies, sweet peppers and cheese). The weather was beautiful so we walked then from Dame St. out to Ringsend, following the Liffey and taking a few photographs along the way, talking through some of the things that have been going on for us over the last couple of weeks. They've been a difficult few weeks.

Back to my flat then for tea and a DVD (28 Weeks Later - terrifying, brilliant) and then another stroll, this time to Parnell St via George's Dock, where we picked up the Hurler and headed to the cinema to see Be Kind, Rewind (which was very charming, Mos Def more than making up for the annoyance that is Jack Black). We walked home again via Scruffy Murphys, where the lads had a Guinness each and I had an orange juice. I'm bursting with virtue and pizza now, and am going straight to bed before my halo slips.

Happy Paddy's Day. I had intended to ignore it with the curtains closed but we ended up watching the parade at Parnell Square. It was actually fun, and I even smiled and bobbed up and down a bit.

I haven't had a drink all day either.

Manuel said...

awh sounds like a v sweet day......I would have swapped easily with you..

AJ said...

This not drinking thing must be contagious. Not drinking on Paddys Day is some achievement.
I think we should all feel proud.....or old and sensible. God I need a drink !

Ellie said...

My secret celebrity crush is Jack Black. *hangs head in shame*

nuttycow said...

I'm almost disappointed... I was looking forward to tales of debauchary (sp? my head's full of cotton wool today)

Rosie said...

i'm kinda sorry i missed the parade alright, Annie. i got stuck in it while crossing the road at O' Connell bridge and the swarm of cartoon bumblebees that were making their way towards me looked impressive.

i read about your day, Manuel, and i laughed. schadenfreude; i has it.

Ellie, i'm disgusted with you. welcome to the club.

AJ and Nutty, i like to drink and debauch on my own terms, not when tradition dictates! (read: the pubs were too packed and i don't like to have to queue at the bar)

Time was the only drink you could get in Dublin on March 17 was at the Dog Show in the RDS, or was that Good Friday?
Nice walk, I also recommend walking down the dodder to the old grand canal docks.

Rosie said...

that does sound like a nice walk, Conan. i took a few photos down by the dock yesterday, might post 'em later.

Good to see BKR is living up to the hype, although I'm not sure I'll ever recover from Mos Def's diva fit at the Village last year. What an ass.

Rosie said...

what happened in the village?

backpedalbrakes said...

He showed up 2+ hours late for his gig (and it was packed to the rafters), had a shit backing track and only played for an hour. Muppeh.

Me said...

Oooh I didn't drink either on Paddy's day..pat on the back for me.
However, I was still slightly sozzled all day from the previous two days drinking.

Rosie said...

Catherine - that's shocking. glad i wasn't there or i'd have had a diva fit myself. though probably no backing track.

all the cool kids were sober this year, Me. sure we have to take a break some time.

wish I hadn't drank ! - bloody hindsight!
