Happy St. Patrick's Day


Hello!! Seamus the Leprechaun here, guest blogger on the elderly gamer. Well it's that time of year again, and on this blog it falls to me to wish you, wherever you are the best Paddy's day ever. In the the words of the Leprechaun elders,

for every Storm let there be a rainbow
for every tear a smile
for every care, a promise
for every sigh, a sweet song
Nár laga Dia do lámh

I am about as far from Irish as you can get on the ethnic spectrum of things, but Cheers!

Seamus the Leprechaun said...

As long as mutton and ale are in abundance, I'm onboard...

*hastily signs papers without reading fine print*

why do some calenders call this day "Evacuation Day"?

The Elderly said...

In 1776, in Suffolk County, Massachusetts the 17th March is an official holiday commemorating the evacuation of the city (which was a town at the time) of Boston by British forces during the American Revolutionary War. hence Evacuation Day.

Seamus the Leprechaun said...

..you just read that on wikipedia....

The Elderly said...

..no i knew it all along...

Seamus the Leprechaun said...

..how could you, you weren't born in 1776.....

The Elderly said...

..pah!!

gnome said...

A very belated (or very early) happy Saint Patrick's Day! *FK raises his third pint of Guinness to Seamus and Elderly* Here's to you!

The Elderly said...

Cheers FK... virtual guiness tastes much nicer with friends round....

..... as to whether i love Ireland... nope, the country I live in now bears no resemblance to the place i was born..... we let the capitalists run the place for too long...

Seamus the Leprechaun said...

....joins in the Guiness sampling... hair of the dog.... cheers FK...

course i love me country, im a leprechaun.. it'd be bad for the tourist business if i said otherwise..... and bad for my bank balance.... sure nobody wants their pots and pans mended anymore... a leprechaun has to live....

gnome said...

We could do an anti-capitalist gaming blogging league you know. Quite a hilarious sight it would be... Silly, even.

The Elderly said...

...we'd have to drop the google ads... and offer game downloads on rapidshare... and offer people shares certificates in EA and Ubisoft for when the revolution was over....

...not silly at all......

Seamus the Leprechaun said...

..i'll ring the doc mr.elderly, those new blood pressure tablets are doing you no good at all.....

lol drop google ads......

gnome said...

Drop Google Ads? That revisionist thinking will get us nowhere comrade... As Lenin said: one step backwards (that's google ads) two steps forward (that's gaming for the masses)

The Elderly said...

(takes out calculator... takes out abacus..... use pencil and paper and fingers..... pulls off socks and counts toes.....)

but it's a step forward.....here check my calculations

-1 step backward
+2 steps forward
equals
+1 step forward

gnome said...

Indeed. You're obviously a revolutiary too!

The Elderly said...

(blushs....) why thank you... (chest swells up with pride...)

it was nothing really... here look

(shows gnome back of calculator...)

batteries.... all the hard work was done for me....

gnome said...

Amazing!

The Elderly said...

well yes i suppose i did have to press the numbers in the right order... why thank you it is pretty amazing really.....
