Happy Match / St.Patty's Day

I really need to take my headache to bed but I thought I'd be remiss if I didn't post a wee something on such an auspicious day.

To my fellow meddies, CONGRATS on the match! I can't even imagine what emotions I'll be going though in two years time on match day. It gives me chills just thinking about it.

And to everyone else, happy St. Patrick's day!

And yes, I rang it in with style, and with friends. There was hiking, jigging, pint drinking, green cowboy hat wearing, and laughing throughout the day. Photos to follow, but for now I leave you with an Irish toast:

Whiskey, drink divine!
Why should drivellers bore us
With the praise of wine
When we've three before us.

May you be buried in a coffin from the wood of an 100 year old tree, that I will plant tomorrow!

[Some guy at the bar used that as a cheer, and I thought it quite delightful. It's the closest I'll be to being Irish]

Saint Patrick's day lasts three weeks in Philadelphia. UNDERGRADS -- DON'T YOU HAVE AN EXAM TO STUDY FOR OR SOMETHING????

I think they celebrate St Patricks more in the USA than any place on earth, including Ireland.

Personally, since my name is clearly Irish, there's no need for any other sort of wearing of the green...

Toasts all around!

I'm away from home for vacation/conference and am ashamed to say that I entirely forgot it was St. Patty's day! About 10 of us went out for dinner after a long day of learning and it didn't come up once. We spent most of the time talking about the match and laughing about internship.
