Yeah, so, I get asked a lot if I’m Irish. I always say the same thing: “No, this red hair is paid for. I’m Chinese.” [My great grandmother was Chinese. True story.]
Of course, now I’m Irish by marriage. So yeah, happy St. Patrick’s Day. I hope you don’t hear House of Pain’s “Jump Around” too many times today.
I always think of my Chico State days on St. Patrick’s Day. Of course, it’s pretty much always St. Patrick’s Day at Chico State, drinking all day, etc., except on St. Patrick’s Day the beer is green. I remember walking through the campus one day, literally stepping over passed out people on the grass and dodging puddles of green vomit. Ah, the good ol’ days.
Oh, one more thing … with all the bad news in the world, I decided to get happy in this week’s Dork Side.
