Not a Holiday

Well, well - it's St. Patrick's Day again. I've never understood how or why an ethnic holiday managed to become a national party day. Nothing in particular against the Irish, it's just that...well, I don't celebrate Chinese New Year, Cinco de Mayo, Kim Il Sung's Birthday, or whatever the Mongolian and Nigerian equivalents are - so why St. Patrick's Day?

In fact, I won't celebrate it. Happy Completely Ordinary Saturday, folks! I'm off to the office to do some programming.

Of course, if I were going to celebrate it, I think a good way to do so might be to find a Jew and give him some chainmail. Click the link for full explanation.
