Get yer Irish on
I bet you didn't know that St. Patrick was actually a glacier:
Why Ireland has no snakes
In celebration of St. Patrick's Day tomorrow, we will 1) go to the vet to get Libby's nails trimmed (fun!), and 2) drive to Rockford to experience some of the city's finest non-Irish, beer-free dining. If I feel sufficiently motivated, I may trek downtown to see the dyeing of the Chicago River, just because I haven't gone in years and years. The parade doesn't interest me, but dyeing a major body of water a surreal shade of green is always worth a picture or two.
From The Fugitive: "If they can dye the river green on St. Patrick's Day, why can't they dye it blue the other 364 days?"
