St. Patty's Day fun for ye lads and lasses...

Okay, so that title sucks. And it's probably not even Irish speak. What the hell...it's not like I am Irish (as witnessed by the below quiz scores) so I shouldn't know these things anyway, right?

In the spirit of the day, I played around with some Irish fun and games this morning. Check out the list of things I did to waste my time!

~~I took a Blogthings Quiz to find out my Irish Name.

Your Irish Name Is: Fidelma O'Shea

~~I took An All Things Irish Quiz (and failed miserably!).

You got 1 out of 10 right!

~~I found out some interesting facts about St. Patrick's Day.

Did you know there are 4 places in the US named Shamrock and 9 places called Dublin?
Did you know that 41.5 billion pounds of beef and 2.6 billion pounds of cabbage were sold in 2007?
Did you know that over 100 St. Patrick's Day parades take place in the US?

~~I learned some new jokes.

Q. Why should you never iron a four leaf clover?
A. Because you don't want to press your luck!
Q. What kind of music does a leprechaun band play!
A. Shamrock 'n Roll.
Q. What do you get if you cross poison ivy with a four-leaf clover?
A. A rash of good luck!

~~I found out that I should give an Irish gift to Lady K.

You Should Give a Bar Maiden

All in all, it was great fun filling my brain with even more inane facts and fun about a holiday that I assume is only about wearing green (which I am!) so as not to get pinched (which I won't!) and drinking green Irish Whiskey!

But do you know what my favorite thing about this day is? That I just got this as a souvenir from Lady K's trip to Vegas! Now I can carry my luck around on my phone!

That is the cutest charm ever! Do you know where she got it out there? I'm always looking for adorable shamrock stuff (my son was born on St. Pat's, so I'm hooked!) that isn't corny.
