Kiss Me, I'm Ukrainian!

Ok, not as catchy as 'Kiss Me, I'm Irish'. But that's what I am...this leopard can't change her spots for just one day of the year.

Not to say that us Ukrainians are spotty. I wouldn't want that stereotype to get around the internet!

However, we do have an unfortunate penchant for shoveling on the blue eyeshadow on festival day...

Well, before I put on my green dress and go to work (there's a lot of pinching going on at Barnes & Noble), I'd like to wish everyone a Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Or at least the Americanized version of it beer, corned beef and cabbage, and getting away with sexual harrassment at work with the aforementioned pinching.

I'm thinking about picking up a shamrock plant tomorrow on my day off. You just know they'll be on sale :D They're kind of finicky houseplants to have, my mum had one for years. Very cool though, the shamrocks all close up at night, and open in the day.

Have a good day everyone!

And to all my Gaelic Football friends in Edmonton who read my blog, make sure you stop by the Irish Club and pinch a cute Irishman's bum for me! If there are any there at time...I know the kind that usually sit at the bar...:P lol

Happy St Patricks's Day--umm, Ukranian Day--to you, Kyna;-) Hope your day off is a good one!

Kyna, with your fair skin and red hair, you fit in the Irish theme for the day! :) I get away with my Irish heritage this one day of the year. My husband's Greek heritage rules the rest of the year. :)

Kyna said...

Hehe, thanks Jan! I got away relatively pinch-free :D

Kimberly: Yeah, everyone always assumes I'm Irish. But Mr. A is! His grandparents came over through Ellis Island, from County Kerry :)

I forgot to wear green today. Next year I'll wear a tilladsia in my pocket to avoid the aforementioned harassment. :(

I hope you had a great day! I didn't wear green today and got pinched by my son.

Hope you had a wonderful St. Patrick's Day and didn't drink too much of that green beer - ick. I compromised and had green tea instead, not sure if that counts though.
