“All Y’all Seen The Leprechaun, Say ‘Yeah!'”

March 16, 2009

… I mean, we couldn’t NOT post it.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Yes, we’re a wee bit early, but any holiday that endorses public drunkenness or turns a Bennigan’s upside-down can never get enough of a head-start. Two days even seems conservative, given the time it takes revelers – and the sanitation workers cleaning up their vomit – to recover. But that’s tomorrow.

Today, you’ve got nothing but prep time. Why not spend it learning about the exciting origins of St. Patrick’s Day? Making Irish potatoes and reading Ulysses? … Signing up for a massive NYC Pub Crawl tomorrow night? (Do that one.) We at Lifting Fog throw all of our Irish for a day support behind this sacred celebration and wish everyone a safe and happy day. Or half a week.

Erin Go Bragh! Whatever it means!

Now On To More Important Business

happy-easter-babiesDrunk on Inaugural boxed wine (of the figurative variety) last night I kept clicking the “Next” tab on my WordPress dashboard, hoping to stumble on one or five exciting new blogs. Something tapped into the national vein? Something hilarious? What I got was better than anything I could have imagined. People Magazine, sophisticated older sister to Us Weekly, has for an undetermined amount of time been maintaining a blog of such stature, such significance, that to describe it as “revolutionary” would be a gross understatement. Whittling out so much of their print magazine’s unwanted filler and streamlining the meatiest content, they’re bringing American women exactly what they want. That’s right – celebrity babies. Cartons of ’em.

Babies!
