Wishing You the Luck ‘O the Irish!

Happy St Patrick’s Day everyone! 

Today we celebrate the Irish, a people about whom Sigmund Freud said, “This is one race of people for whom psychoanalysis is of no use whatsoever.” Um, I’m not sure why, but I think I like it!

MEOW! The REAL reason leprechauns are so mean? They’re actually cats!

No time to write a post for Tuesday True Confessions. I may have to make that Thursday True Confessions. But I WILL continue writing it.

In the meantime, if any of you have any HR or employment law experience, I could use some advice.

I leave with you my favorite Irish saying, which may be a blessing or a curse, depending on which web site you read:

May those who love us love us.
And those that don’t love us,
May God turn their hearts.
And if He doesn’t turn their hearts,
May he turn their ankles,
So we’ll know them by their limping.

Hello and welcome. I’m a 50 something woman who’s probably awake when she should be sleeping. Oh, and there are animals, because who doesn’t have pets?

  3. Thank you 🙂 I used to live in Ireland and it always was a blast to go to the parade… back in Germany now with no parade in sight 🙂
    Have a great one yourself…

  15. BOL, cats indeed! Now THAT was funny. Love that blessing-leave it to the Irish to have it be twisted but true to human nature. 🙂
