“poor old erin’s isle”

March 17, 2010

In honor of St. Paddy’s day, i would like to share the two things i remember offhand about St. Paddy’s day in Belfast.

That is the only time i’ve ever seen riot police.

And the teenage kids who came into the coffee shop so their buddy could go puke in the bathroom (not sure why; no one there ever seemed to have qualms about puking on the sidewalk. I suppose it’s different at 1 am, though), and proceeded to berate us for being sober at 3 in the afternoon, already! I mean, really, what a waste of time. We got started not long after, despite them. And, i think made up for our lack of effort at the beginning of the day by being still up, having a beer when time to go to class rolled around the next morning.
