Got Green? blog o'Hop 2.0 - I'm just in time!
It's 11:41pm here in Western Australia, so I'm just in time to participate in Mark Koopmans's fun Oirish-themed blog (o')hop mach ii.
First off, I'll link back to last year's entry, where I talked about how I'd never visited Ireland before but would soon be in that very country. I later followed up with a description of what Ireland was like in comparison to what I'd expected (at Mark's suggestion). Turns out I actually had visited Ireland prior to 2012, back in 1980 as a ten-week-old baby. But I have much clearer memories of 2012's visit. hehe. My mum did tell me that I fell off a table somewhere at ten weeks old, though. No wonder I turned out so weird!
Now I have ten minutes of March 15th left, so I better get on with today's entry! I wanted to mention that in Australia, St Paddy's Day is a fairly huge deal. We throw big parties over here and there is a lot of drinking and obnoxious behaviour (so very Aussie of us). Australia also has a big Irish population, with more and more immigrating every year. So those guys are out in full force on their national day. So, yeah, it's a big party night here...which may explain why I'll be happy as a pig in mud on Sunday night, at home alone. :)
Happy St Paddy's Day for Sunday everyone!! And now that there are nine minutes left of March 15th, I'm off to brush my teeth and get some sleep!
