The TV Guide: St. Patty's Day Comes Early

Because St. Patrick's Day falls on a Monday this year (tomorrow), Le GangTM and I decided that it would be best to celebrate the Irish holiday yesterday since we could all get together and drink til we turned green. And while we didn't drink nearly as much as I would've liked (not me, necessarily, I like seeing my friends get all sloppy) we did have a great time hanging out nonetheless. Le GangTM and I were joined by Steph and Alek's friends Galen and Lori for dinner at Falcon (which sounds like a sex shop but is actually a really nice restaurant) before we all made our way to Tom Bergin's Tavern for a few pints of Guinness:

Don't let the third photo fool you ... I was merely gettin' tired not gettin' trashed. It was at Tom Bergin's Tavern that I got to meet Pink readers Cat and Dana. We actually spent a bit of time talking since there were so many connections that we found out we shared ... Cat knows a student of mine from ULS back in Michigan and Dana went to a rival high school that Mike and his sister Jill went to back in Florida. Cat and I even share the same birthday :) I'm so glad they came over to say hey, it was really very cool getting to meet them both. I'm told I have to give a shout out to Pink reader Emily who, unfortch, couldn't be with us last night.

I spent most of today getting my paperwork ready for my taxes (yay!) and will be meeting up with some folks tonight for dinner at Ketchup.

The coming week is going to be a dooze ... I'm very excited for a couple of really amazing events this week ... and then at the end of the week, I'll be flying back East to be with David for a few days in NYC. I hope it's been a great week for all y'all.
