Luck O' The (Not-So-Much) Irish

I have a date with McDreamy (does that make him Irish;)?) tonight.

Ahhhh, Patrick Dempsey, how I love thee.

Allergies/Cold-not so much.

So it's St. Patrick's Day and while every other year I'm sporting my "Kiss Me" shirt and drinking beer, this year I'm camped out on the couch with my tissues and Grey's Anatomy DVD (I love you, too, Netflix!). It's kind of hard to not go out and even though I have a good reason, I'm feeling kind of like a nerd. But besides drinking a lot, I've never gone out on St. Patrick's Day and come home with some cool story of snagging a guy (not that it is always my intention when going out but when it's the night of "Kiss me, I'm (not-so-much) Irish", then kissing seems to be the goal).

The past few years I celebrated by going to Kegs and Eggs in the morning and then being exhausted by the night. (Note: Kegs and Eggs is NOT the best place to meet people, it's the time and place to drink.) One year in college I passed on going out with my girl friends to instead go to another friend's place to hang out where my crush would be. Ahhh, what a fun (in the 'not-at-all' way) night. Another friend ended up drinking an entire bottle of Jack Daniels because he was upset about a girl and we almost had to call 911. It was so scary (and stupid) and I even went to the restroom in front of him because he was so gone. The only action I got that night was when my crush passed out, holding onto my leg. (Just for giggles, it was NotRoger, ha!)

So yeah, this St. Patty's Day is all about McDreamy but that's ok. I'll live vicariously through Meredith (this is season 1, remember).

Don't worry, you're not alone. I'm sitting at home...alone...watching movies tonight as well. Except I don't have a good reason. Maybe I'll pretend I was sick and use that as the reason for my lack of good drunk St. Patty's Day stories.

And I'm jealous of your season 1 of Grey's Anatomy. I'm in love with Alex and once he gets over Izzie, he's totally going to realize he wants me.

Oh I am all about Derrick. He is so freaking hott in those scrubs.

And the weird thing is that I changed my Netflix order bc Grey's Anatomy kept being "long wait"...but then they sent it anyway! I love Netflix!

I need to go buy Grey's Anatomy. It'd be totally worth it.

I won't argue with you about Derrick, he IS insanely hot. I think it's the hair...and the eyes...and the scrubs...oh hell, he's just all-around gorgeous!

I was SO feeling keggs and eggs this year with O.A.R. there!!! But had to WORK and didn't want to take off. I suck.

Went to Little Italy instead for dinner and some lovely Chianti with the girls.
