St. Patricks Day
My cats decided to wake me up at 5:30 this morning. Thanks for that cats. My boy cat Jackson saw me move a TINY bit and started to cry a very PLANTIVE cry over and over again. Hearing this my girl cat decided she could come scare the shit out of me so I would get up and feed her. I was trying to ignore my boy cat because everyone says that your cats train you...by these said cries...when really nothing is actually wrong. I know his "I'm scared and crying and something is wrong" cry, but I also know his "I'm bored, get up and move around so I am entertained. Then I will go to sleep while you stare blurry eyed at the news since I woke you up for no reason." Cry. So...long story short I was trying to ignore him...and then decided what the hell, he's been crying for 10 min. I know he wont stop. So I open my eyes and THERE is the girl cat...RIGHT IN MY FACE! I screamed. She was very sneaky and quiet about it. But she blinked up at me with her pretty little face and I know she was thinking. "God woman, don't YELL! I just want you to get up and feed my face!" It was funny afterwards, but here I am. Awake since 5:30.
But thats okay. Its St.Patricks DAY! YAY! I love a good holiday. Christmas is my favorite, then St.Patricks Day, the Halloween and finally Valentiens Day. I like the 4th of July as well...espically now that I live on the east coast where the sun goes down in July as opposed to staying up all night long and making it hard to see fireworks. Plus I have a KILLER spot on my balcony to watch the county's fireworks.
This St. Patricks Day I am doing it RIGHT! Later on I shall make scones, with Irish butter and homemade Jam. I already made the Jam, I just need to make the Scones. I brined a brisket for around 10 days to make Corned Beef. I also have cabbage. I don't know if I want Corned Beef and Cabbage for dinner or Hash. Since I also have potatoes. I'm thinking the hash, because I love me some potatoes! I am also watching QVC almost the entire day until I finally watch Destination Truth over in Ireland on the Scifi Cannel *I will NEVER call it Syfy. Thats just dumb* So I'm super excited!
I am sadly not Irish though. I am actually Scottish, German and Alakan Native. But I am TRULY Irish at heart. I've been there on a school trip. Where I found my FAVORITE peice of jewelery which is currently locked in a bank valt. And my FAVORITE book: Daughter of the Forest by Juliet Mariller. Go find her. LOVE her books. They are amazing. Plus if I could I would marry an Irish man with an Irish accent in a New York Minute.
Happy St. Patricks Day everyone!
