St. Patty's Day etc

St PatsSt. Patty's Day in Des Moines is something people get excited about.

There's a big parade and parties all over . . .

Pi doesn't particularly like parades.

I think they're kinda stupid actually.

So when good ol C-Dub asked me to join his party people IN the parade...

Hmmm, well, might as well give it a shot.

Their parade entry is the Official Des Moines Irish Drinking Team or something like that

They have shirts made for the occasion.

We started at the High Life Lounge around 8.30-9am...

Getting up early has never been so easy!

Unfortunately the weather was miserable....rainy and mid30s-ish

This really put a damper on the lining-up-for-the-parade part of the day...which lasted an hour!

During the parade, I sat in the back of a pick-up truck, tossing beads to children just whining for them...

Shit, you'd think they were made out of gold or something.

They could care less about the candy!

Beads!! BEEAADDSS!!!

It was like that scene in Indiana Jones, Temple of Doom, when all the kids are holding up their shackled wrists yelling Me! Me!

::Shudder:: Creepy.

As soon as the parade was over, I booked to the nearest pants were soaking wet.


Big party at the Embassy Suites...too bad everyone smelled like wet dogs!

Blah. So the rest of the day is only so-so...and pictures can speak for themselves...

Green Goat

Seriously, who gets waxed like this?!

Shamrock Chest hair!

More on the flickr page, as usual!
