last night i attended one cool st patty's party. everyone dutifully wore green - wait - i think the guy next to me was in gray - well, you know how guys are. anyway, there was live entertainment. a professional musician played her piano and sang traditional irish songs for us. she also played a couple jigs on the fiddle. i learned the difference (maybe) between traditional irish music, american irish music, and american wannabe irish music. there was also lots of delicious food! what a great time.
