Yes, We'll Drink and Fight!

Mood:  getting better.
Hating:  professors who cancel 9.00am classes without bothering to tell the class.
Loving:  today!
Lip-syncing:  Buck O Nine
Quote of the day:  "Want to know what else would wake you up? A nice, quiet lobotomy."

I've all the makings of an alcoholic, I think.

Waking up at 7.00am, sitting in rush hour traffic for over an hour, only to get to school to find out class is canceled can put anyone in a foul mood. Add a sleep-deprived, already pissed off me, and you're not too far off from a nuclear explosion.

But once again, a friend swoops in the save the day.

Perhaps drinking before 11.00am is a little extreme, yet today is one of the few days I believe it's acceptable. It's not like I'm halfway to being drunk by any means; I like to think I hold my alcohol well. It's just that today is one of the many celebrations of a distinctive culture and heritage, whether you belong to it or not.

It's truly a beauty of Canada. With so many ethnic groups living and working together (for the most part; that's a whole different argument though), it's such a blessing to be able to experience the nuances and history of something completely different from your personal life. Whether it be the Chinese New Year, Diwali or Rosh Hashana, you get the opportunity to explore and learn new things you never would have otherwise.

Although today makes a bid for the favourite. Have to love the green beer and camaraderie. So get out, learn, celebrate, and enjoy being an honourary Irishman!

Happy St. Patrick's day!

I'm so sad to admit that I didn't even have one drink on St. Patty's. I worked all day... it blew.
