(and that's Top o' the Muffin to you Seinfeld fans)
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. --Irish proverb
We won't be having a typical Irish celebration around here, but I do feel particularly lucky that I got the paper done for my Modern Irish Lit class on time. (HUGE thanks to Sarah who came down on Tuesday to watch Sydney while I typed away.) Hoping my mad writing skills earn me an A.
If you're looking for some Irish lit to get you in the proper St. Patrick's Day mood, here's a few suggestions:
- The Anchor Book of New Irish Writing
- Paddy Clarke Ha Ha Ha, by Roddy Doyle
- The Inland Ice, by Eilis Ni Dhuibhne
- The Deposition of Father McGreevy, by Brian O'Doherty
- The Blackwater Lightship, by Colm Toibin
- Reading in the Dark, by Seamus Deane
- Grace Notes, by Bernard Maclaverty
Have a wonderfully lucky day!
