|Fairies Amongst the Trees|
Happy Saint Patrick's Day! While everyone in my house is too sick to fix corned beef and cabbage for dinner (fun fact: corned beef and cabbage is a traditional New England dish from here in the States, not Ireland), it doesn't mean we can't celebrate here on Stellar Four.
Much like a Leprechaun would do, I've cobbled* together all sorts of appropriately themed goodies including cake and a free book after the jump.
*Wow, my jokes get so much worse when I'm sick.
Not Martha has created the cutest Leprechaun Trap Cake and details how to make it.
Everybody's familiar with Irish blessings but how about a few good Irish curses? My favorite are:
Dysentery on you.
May you be afflicted with the itch and have no nails to scratch with.
To Hallifax with him.
