A Piece of Ireland
Time to kick off the St Patrick's Day celebrations with Duffy the Vampire Slayer who drove all the undead away from Ireland. It's a shame that many people tend to shy away from wearing green on any other day because it's an extremely underrated colour. A splash of green can chase the breakup blues away, making one look drunkenly desperate instead of desperately drunk:
Admittedly green tends to be the shade of choice for those wanting to make an impact on the red carpet:
Even if that impact is much like a stream of vomit hitting the ground:
But green's not just for the showponies. It can also be used as a subtle way of blending in:
In Hong Kong, St Patrick's Day tends to be quite a lively affair, what with the drinking of the beer and the overly greasy Cantonese meals at the Shamrock Seafood Restaurant. Heck, we don't even have to dye our own waters the way that other cities do.
If you're like me and choose to celebrate special days by buying stuff, then by all means go out and buy a piece of Ireland. The country that is, not the former Sports Illustrated model. For US$49.99 you get 1 square foot of rural Irish land. Enough space to dance a little jig on. If you all quickly buy up the plots, we could own most of County Roscommon by the end of this week! It'd be like regrouping Boyzone, Westlife AND B*witched and putting them in charge of the World Bank but oh, the fun we could have!
