Happy St. Patrick’s Day, my dears! I’m part -Irish myself, so I think it’s no coincidence that I’ve always been a big fan of March 17th. Even one of my (five) names is Irish, so you know I must be a fan.
Genetics aside, I think part of my fondless towards St. Patrick’s Day is the fact that so many people choose to dress in green to celebrate the day. Even card-carrying members of Corporate America (such as myself), a land where work-appropriate attire reigns supreme, are decked out in all hues of emerald, moss, and lime. I’ve seen mint-colored button down shirts on the guys, gorgeous blue-green wrap dresses on the ladies.
Walking through the halls of my work today, in quite a chipper mood, has made me feel like I’m literally walking inside one of my favorite movie scenes. I loved the flick 500 Days of Summer, but especially loved Tom’s dance scene. Not only is it playing one of my favorite songs, but I love the visual quality of the clip. Have you ever noticed that everyone in the dance scene is wearing some shade of blue or bluish-green? I think it brings such a neat effect to an already amusing scene.
Being surrounded by so many similarly-clad corkers has me tempted to start
dancing, singing Hall & Oates at the top of my lungs, to see who joins along.
Erin go Bragh!
