Anyone wearing green today? - Page 2

post #16 of 42
Sorry, I just had it confirmed that the SHAMROCK has THREE leaves, not four (clover!)! This comes form an actual Irish person, not from an Irish decendent. Lá breíthe Padraig!

Nope, no green for me. I’m Austro-Hungarian-German. The closest thing I have to Irish relatives, are the ones that live in England Jon.

That's the Irish spirit! No stress, no tension, just goodness, benevolence and friendliness! Cheers Millerp! And please know ... I was merely the messenger ... Beannachtaí na féile Padraig!

I don't have much green in my closet but I did wear a green t-shirt underneath my shirt. It's a band t-shirt actually, Sufjan Stevens. I did what I could. I'll probably hit some Irish pub tonight and drink a few Guinness.

My green W.W. Chan blazer, of course. Although one doesn't exactly "wear" a wife, since the topic has come up, I will mention that all three of the women I have been married to have had a good deal of Irish ancestry. Wife I, Irish and German (and all devil!); Wife II, Norwegian and Irish (and all devil); Wife III (the present one), English and Irish (sometimes a philistine, sometimes an old poop, but certainly no devil!). I always did like fair-skinned women!

As I noted in my post on this on the Andy Forum, it's amusing that the Asians at my workplace seem to have taken this "wearin' o' the green" business more than anybody else, myself excepted of course.

Yup... Oxxford navy twill blazer atop BB cavalry twill dark khaki trousers, BB royal blue/navy candy stripe shirt, modified spread collar (I believe Brooks calls it the Ainsley), with an emerald green/tan/blue scarf print Rando KiiK tie I picked up in Prague last year. Also a blue pocket square with rolled green edges, emerald green socks of some indeterminate brand (probably Marshall's finest) stuffed into antiqued British tan C&J for Ralph Lauren Polo monk straps. Normally, I wouldn't dress down so much, but there's this party at my local tavern where they promised there would not be any green beer, but they would have the "Pucker girls" serving "pucker shots", whatever that is, and who could miss such a thing as that?

Absolutely. St. Padraic himself often used the shamrock to described the Holy Trinity.

Song for Ireland is one of my favorites. We save that for later when the Bushmills makes me maudlin. This fits my mood today a bit better:

There's a piercing wintry breeze
Blowing through the budding trees
And I button up my coat to keep me warm
But the days are on the mend
And I'm on the road again
With my fiddle snuggled close beneath my arm

Chorus:
I've a fine, felt hat
And a strong pair of brogues
I have rosin in my pocket for my bow
O my fiddle strings are new
And I've learned a tune or two
So, I'm well prepared to ramble and must go

I'm as happy as a king
When I catch a breath of spring
And the grass is turning green as winter ends
And the geese are on the wing
And the thrushes start to sing
And I'm headed down the road to see my friends

Chorus

I have friends in every town
As I wander up and down
Making music at the markets and the fairs
Through the donkeys and the creels
And the farmers making deals
And the yellow headed tinkers selling wares

Chorus

Here's a health to one and all
To the big and to the small
To the rich and poor alike and foe and friends
And when I return again
May our foes have turned to friends
And may peace and joy be with you until then

Chorus

Sung by: Tommy Makem

That or a dose of the Chieftains "Drowsy Maggie"

I wore a pale green stripe-pattern Thomas Pink shirt (Made in Ireland), a "really" green Gucci tie and a green Banana Republic sweater. I think I was the greenest person in the office.

Olive is OK, but I never wear green.
