I've gone green today (at least the background). Who-so-ever coined the phrase "luck of the Irish" hadn't read much Irish history. Maybe he/she was trying to be ironic.
My wife is 1/2 Irish (we even visited some cousins in Ireland on our honeymoon), so we enjoy the day (read: drink green beer and gorge ourselves on corned beef & cabbage). The whole family gets to march in a parade later--the first time for me since 8th grade band.
In other lucky news, Catherine J. Gardner has a contest up at her blog. In full disclosure, I'm making a vain attempt at landing the "booby prize" by listing the contest here. Good luck to ye.
Here's to having acceptances in all your in-boxes on this St. Patrick's Day.
