Happy St. Patrick's Day and alla that! (Wlokay, it's tomorra in Oirland, nesupasu?1)

Lookit! Even OneLook, my favorite meta-dictionary, got in on the act!



Nice word of the day, too, eh? :-D

In other news: Ugh. I believe the phrase you are looking for is: "Bha, toast me!" Or perhaps thy modir. As in "word to".

1 ETA, 21:15 CST: *blush* OK, so I was two days early. (Interestingly enough, there are two interpretations of "it's tomorrow in Ireland", one of which is actually a valid statement.) This is what happens with holiday advertising in the USA: seasonal whatsits everywhere (in this case, shamrocks coming out of the faucets), any excuse for seasonal (green) beer, ads from FTD inviting everyone and his brother Shamus to send people green carnations (huh?), Google News featuring hundreds of articles on St. Patrick's Day 2005, 24-72 hours before the fact... and of course, banazir not actually managing to discover in two Google searches when SPD actually falls. Next time? I'ma check Egreetings.com. At least they'll have the date. Bha. HumGreenbug.

Huh?
It may be tomorra in Oirland, but that still only makes it the 16th.

Of course, there is that other St. Patrick whose feastday is the 16th of March...

Perhaps you were referring to him?

I'm sorry.
I thought you were trying to justify your "Happy St. Patrick's Day" comment by claiming that it is St. Patrick's Day already in Ireland.

The problem is that the feastday of the St. Patrick who is the patron saint of Ireland is on the 17th.

And now I think I've confused both of us.

I'll shut up now.

I was, but since St. Patrick's Day is acksherly on 17 Mar 2005 (subjective date), I am backpedalling and taking it to mean that St. Patrick's Day occurs tomorrow (objective date) in Ireland, where it will be Thursday the 17th a few hours earlier, when it is still tomorrow for us.

Yee.

you sure talk funny for a professor ;p

another good song, though! i really like 'air that i breathe' by the hollies, though... man, that's a great song ;D

j/c, do you have a zachary 'something or other' (he's jewish, that's about all i know of him) in any of your physics classes there? he's a real freak (from what i've seen online here), i just wondered what he's like in class. haha, i know you have no idea who i might be talking about, i just got back from a long walk and i'm not making any sense... not enough oxygen to the brain!

Hrm... are you sure he is at K-State?

The only Zachary I know in our department is a Zack Stewart. From a quick check of our department directory, I think you may mean Zachary Maier, but I've never met him. If he's a physics major, I probably don't know him.

Re: I talk funny for a professor?
yup, it's kind of hard making a connection like that. i just felt like asking a stupid, random question. :D but yeah, i am sure he's at K-state... he's either a freshman or a sophomore. i don't really know the guy, only that he's been a stupid ass to me online. so, that's all :)

To confuse everyone even further, Montreal (my city) holds its annual St Paddy's parade on the Sunday *before* actual St Paddy's Day.

I dislike the parade because it interferes with the bus routes downtown. Begorrah.

The city in which (near which?) I live now held its annual St. Pat's day parade on March 1. This being my birthday, I left my apartment and initially thought it was about me.

Hey, belated happy birthday, BTW!

My gift to you is a flossiwhip. Named after Tante Flossie Balrog, the terror of Moria, aka Durin's Bane, it's the perfect accessory for a spoothbrush.

Indeed.

I didn't realize you were in Montreal!
That makes yet another Canadian in my friends list.

What does "begorrah" mean anyway, BTW?

No official cite, but looking at words like bejabbers and gorblimey, I'd guess that it's a corruption of "by God".
