I am giving new definition to Irish tacky today--I have LIGHT up St. Patrick's day shamrock earrings, horrible green braid headband, and a light-up green crown.
Plus lime green nail polish as a base coat and green sparkly polish on top of that. But I'm very upset that I can't wear my "shiver me shamrock" leprechaun socks (yes, they say shiver me shamrocks) due to my broken toe that I can't cover.
Am subbing for a group of little kiddies today--they have the cutest little events planned. It's Catch a Leprechaun day, and each class has devised all sorts of "traps" to catch them. They wrote limericks, made Irish soda bread, put together actual contraptions, and rainbow posters. It's actually kind of a neat way to incorporate science, math, English, Social Studies into a holiday. While they're at morning assembly, where they will have a St. Paddy's day presentation, they're going to make "leprechaun tracks", i.e., lucky charms in and out of the classrooms and put a stuffed leprechaun in the best "traps" in each classroom. Overall winner gets a visit from a "real" leprechaun later today.
This is cute. Later on though, they will be eating green cupcakes, green cookies, and most of them will probably try to eat the lucky charms off the floor. That will not be cute.
I will definitely be drinking some green beer after today's events and my Spanish midterm.
