Cinco de Patrick's Day

photo stolen from the internets (and cropped).

Cinco de Mayo. Hmmm, another excuse for us Americans to celebrate a holiday that really doesn't have anything to do with us? A reason to call in sick and hungover the next day? I've just never quite understood the folks that get so excited about a holiday that is at it's core a few degrees separated from our reasons to drink alcohol. St. Patty's Day is similar. At least alot of the drunks out on St. Patty's day have some Irish heritage, but sheesh. C'mon. Call a spade a spade and just say, "I'm going out drinking."

Ok. I'm going out drinking. Well not TONIGHT, but soon I'm sure.
