my life

i’m a warriors fan and enjoying their recent success after watching years of deplorable success with players like alton lister and kevin pritchard. i have my second electric car. i recently put a deposit in for the new tesla model 3 car but was disappointed at the interior and potential for problems since it’s the first model year of that car. i grew up near my parents and my kids grew up near their great-grandparents which is fantastic because i grew up far from extended family.

happy lá fhéile pádraig

who knew anakin was of irish descent?

pictures below are from the irish women’s rugby team. how exciting is it to watch women tackle each other in the name of sports, although it would be better if they were a touch prettier.

i also like that the catholic church will allow meat consumption if st paddy’s day falles on a friday in lent:

The feast day usually falls during Lent; if it falls on a Friday of Lent (unless it is Good Friday), the obligation to abstain from eating meat can be lifted by the local bishop. [wiki]

it would be great to throw down some beer and corned beef today somehow.

[update: i just saw this today, but i don’t want to wait till next year to post the picture]

here’s a chair especially made for men wearing kilts. i wonder if this is a commodity item in ireland?

i gotta get me one of these.
