Irish Jokes

I was hanging out with some folks on Friday night and PConnolly told these jokes with a perfect Irish accent.  We laughed our tits off… enjoy.

Bless me Father, for I have
sinned.  I have been with a loose woman.  The priest asks, "Is
that you, little Timmy Shaughnessy?
        Yes, Father, it is.
        And, who was the woman you were
        I can’t be tellin’ you,
Father.  I don’t want to ruin her reputation.
        Well, Timmy, I’m sure to find out
sooner or later, so you may as well tell me now. Was it Brenda O’Malley?
        I cannot say.
        Was it Patricia Kelly?
        I’ll never tell.
        Was it Sheilah O’Brien?
        I’m sorry, but I cannot name her.
        Was it Kathleen Morgan?
        My lips are sealed.
        Was it Fiona Grogan, then?
        Please, Father, I cannot tell you.
        The priest sighs in
frustration.  You’re a steadfast lad, Timmy Shaughnessy, and I admire
that.  But you’ve sinned, and you must atone.  You cannot attend
church mass for three months.  Be off with you now.
        Timmy walks back to his pew.
His friend Sean slides over and whispers,  What’d you get?
        Three month’s vacation and five good

Back in PDX

Just got back from SFO a few minutes ago and it is great to see that it has been raining around here.  Feels like I have been gone for ages and LA seems like a lifetime ago…why does time seem to pass faster as I get older?

Huge week coming up.  Also, thanks Jen, Bradys, and other bay area folks and LA folks for meetings and hanging out.

Gammons on Cubbies – Gammons: Maintenance staff
Spoke to Moreth today – he is down on the cubs…bloody Prior and Woody are already hurting.  We both hope is not a pattern that continues if the cubbies are gonna have any chance this year.  I’ll try to blog my arse off from Mesa next weekend.

Freesia has similiar thoughts on her blog.
Ugh – I hope we are wrong…why are there arms so sore…are they just not used to a little bit of pain or is it chronic?

An Epic Week and other stuff

I am finishing up a sensational week at Travelers Tales and Birdcage Press offices with JenLeo.   Going for a run soon and just reflecting on all the interesting and passionate people I met this week…  Just now I met Joel Simon of Snorkeling Trips with Sea for Yourself and Joel Simon Images by chance.  We talked about travel, kids, business, and all sorts of stuff for 25 minutes and it was inspirational to meet him and his wife.  They have 2 year-old twins that speak English and Spanish…wow!

I also found out that I am going to Arizona next weekend for Spring Training and will get to goto 3 or 4 Cubs games.  Awesome stuff.  I am stoked in a big way about that.

Homeless, unemployed favor malt liquor

Study: Homeless, unemployed favor malt liquor

Ricky Bluthenthal, who led the study, said malt liquors were both higher in alcohol than other beers and tended to be sold in larger containers.

“We found that the combination of these differences resulted in the average malt liquor drinker in our study consuming 80 percent more alcohol per drink than the average regular beer drinker,” he said in a statement.

And, Bluthenthal said, the more alcohol consumed, the worse the consequences for both the drinker and his or her community.

Writing in the March issue of the journal Alcoholism: Clinical & Experimental Research, Bluthenthal’s team said they found malt liquor drinkers were more likely to be homeless, unemployed, receive public assistance, and tended to drink more alcohol than other drinkers.

No kidding…I find it strange that they had todo a study on this to figure this out…come on now.

ex-Bear Todd Bell dies at 47

Hard-hitting ex-Bear Bell dies of heart attack at 47
I am super sad to hear this… I really liked Todd Bell and always felt a bit bad that he sat out the year the Bears won the super bowl. 

One memory I have of him is the year before they won the super bowl – he was the starting strong safety I think…a opposing receiver caught the ball in a full sprint across the middle and as he caught it, he ran into a wall…the walls name was Mr Todd Bell.  It was the most memorable football hit that I witnessed up to that point in my life.  I don’t think that wide receiver played football again…can’t remember if it was a broken leg or what.  A shocking display of hard hitting football…but since he was on "my team" – I was excited and proud.

Peace and best wishes to his family and friends.

Irish Blessing

from JB

May green be the grass you walk on,
May blue be the skies above you,

May pure be the joys that surround you,

May true be the hearts that love you.

May your home be bright with cheer,

May your cares all disappear,

May contentment come your way,

And may laughter fill your day

Happy St. Paddy’s Day folks…
