Top o' the Mornin' to Ye

Hey, did you guys know it's St. Patrick's Day? Redmond chose to celebrate the same way this town celebrates every holiday - by not acknowledging it. Seriously people, I'm not wild about St. Patty's, but, honestly, how difficult is this one? Wear green. That's all you have to do. Who doesn't own something green? This place is stuck in such a time warp. No one ever seems to have any sense of when it is, particularly the people in the apartment across from me who still have their freaking Christmas lights turned on. Ugh.

I feel like my blogging has been so boring lately, but it's simply a reflection of life around here. Three more days until Spring Break. Three more days... three more days... three more days...

There was one bit of interest today: the fire alarms went off during a class. It was weird because no one even reacted. Everyone just ignored it for a minute, and when they finally grasped that, yes, those lights and sounds are really happening, it was as if they found it rude and inconvenient that they were being forced to get out of their chairs. Personally, I welcomed the chance for escape.

Once people started getting outside, I learned why they were so disinterested. Someone told me this was the third time he'd had to evacuate that building this year (I missed the other two because most of my classes are in the other building). So there you go - the one thing I thought was interesting today was, in fact, dull and routine.

And now I must finish a painting. If I finish before midnight, I'll post it here. If not, I'll use it as a cheap way to get out of tomorrow's blog. It's another one of those things where I have to copy a picture that some other artist already made. Here's the goal.

And here's where I am right now.

I mentioned to a coworker yesterday that it was also my brother's birthday as well as St. Patrick's Day, and he replied, "oh, did it just work out that way this year?"

I love people.

I had to show someone my driver's license the other day to get him to believe my birthday was April 1st.
