Man, I overdid it last night. An old friend is getting married today and so a lot of other old friends gathered together to celebrate the occasion by getting completely wrecked. Of course, I know that it’s possible to celebrate joyous events without getting all hammersmashed-face, but I know that as kind of an abstract intellectual concept instead of an actual experience.
And I’m sure that tonight it’s going to happen all over again, especially because the wedding is on St. Patrick’s Day. There’s a reason why green is the color of the day today, and the reason is that St. Patrick’s Day is a big green light for getting wrecked. It’s like coming to a four-way intersection at top speed with a green light ahead of you, except all the other lanes approaching the intersection also have green lights. Fun!
I decided that the only way I was going to survive the experience was by sleeping as much as possible last night after getting to bed about 3 a.m. Which I did. Which is why this post is so late and involves no music. If I don’t get something else done for NSC today, tomorrow is likely to be equally empty of meaningful content.
In the end, I blame my wife. She usually acts as a speed governor when we party together, gently reminding me when I’m about to go right off the road. My memory is hazy, but I think last night she was the one at the wheel.
Anyway, I’m curious what everyone is listening to on this St. Patrick’s Day, even if it isn’t metal, but especially if it’s metal. Whether or not it’s something you chose because this is St. Pat’s, what sounds good on this Saturday?
