Full of Blarney

Himself and Herself, 2011

Please enjoy this rare photograph of my children not annoying the crap out of each other. (Yes, everything is always rainbows, leprechauns and pots of gold around here!)

Even though they look like Russian refugees in this picture, they are mostly Irish. Eileen Rose is named after her grandmothers. Aidan Thomas is named after John Corbett’s adorable character in Sex in the City who I was lusting after during my whole pregnancy. Oh, and my husband. The middle name, and um, of course the whole lusting part, too.

May your glass be ever full.
May the roof over your head be always strong.
And may you be in heaven
half an hour before the devil knows you’re dead.

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day~


As you slide down the banister of life, may the splinters never point in the wrong direction! Please share:

    HAPPY ST PATTY’S DAY, KAREN! Even though I married an Itralian, my maiden name is Morrissey after all. And I loved John Corbett too, but from Northern Exposure. And that was before I met my beloved husband. Have a good one!

    Here’s one for ya:

    There’s a Mexican girl at work (barely speaks English) whos name is Paty (yes, one ‘t’) and her birthday is today! How does something like this happen? I can only imagine the confusion the rest of her family went through on the day of her birth:

    “Paty? Really? Naming your Nino after an Irish holiday in America will NOT get you out of a ticket in Harvard for no insurance with your Illinois license plates. Change her name to Irma and move to Wisconsin instead.”

    As the office manager here, I’m not sure if I should put “Feliz Cumpleanos” on her cake or “Happy St. Irma’s Day”…

    Happy St Pat’s Day love. I’m of Greek heritage but I married an Aussie with Irish heritage. I once helped an Irish friend organise the St Pat’s Parade here in Australia and had the most awesome time. I still have the tea towel with the four leaf clover and many holes. Can’t get rid of it as it reminds me of the good ‘ol days!

    Happy St. Pat’s Karen…from a middle aged Pollack who loves any opportunity to pee green the day after too many green beers…:-)

    As long as it’s not an infection, green pee can be a good time!
