As you've probably noticed, I love to find an image to go with my posts. Often, I can't really convey my emotions so well in words, and pictures seem to do the trick.
Anyways, I thought I'd post something for St. Patrick's Day, as I am now "Irish-by-marriage", and I wanted to show my Irish pride and spread a little cheer. So, I'm searching for a good picture of a leprechaun, and I'm not satisfied. You get the stupid line-art leprechauns, first of all. They look really dorky. Sort of this awful combination of twelve year old girl cute and trailer park dorky. (If ANY person who reads this lives in a trailer park, I apologize. However, I think the chances of that are vanishingly small). Then, you get some pictures of a drunk guy in a green suit passed out in front of a bar. Not cool for St. Paddy's day. But then, genius hits. Lucky.
In my Irish house, we have two visitors: Lucky and Seamus. Lucky is the evil one. He tips over chairs, turns the milk green... stuff like that. Seamus is cool, and leaves gold chocolate coins all over the house. So I thought, hey! Lucky. Lucky charms. Always after me Lucky Charms. So, I search for it, and that's when I find me pot of gold.
How cool is this picture? It's like I want to make that devil sign with my hands, nod my head up and down, and remember that time in 1987 when I saw Ronnie James Dio at Oxford Plains, Maine in the Monsters of Rock Tour. It's so cool that I forgot all about those kids chasing Lucky, and that's how cool I want your St. Patrick's Day to be.
