The Weekend: SPD Edition

I know, I know, it's a day late. But, I was a tad busy co-hosting with Janna for March Madness. Did you link up? If not, don't worry you're pretty little head - there's still time.

Still, I need to recap my Irish weekend with y'all.

Wednesday night, or rather Thursday morning, was a rude awakening. Although I am a firm believer that age is just a number, I realized I'm too old for this shit!

My coworker and I went to go see the Dropkick Murphys at terminal 5 here in Manhattan. However, pre-gaming was necessary so we headed to 123 Burger Shot Beer in Hell's Kitchen. Three of the guys from our IT department happened to show up as well so we did shots. But with 20 to choose from and at $2/shot how do you choose just one?! So we didn't. We had 2 rounds of all 20.

Thank you shitty scratched camera lens cover.
Again with the fuzzy

It sounds lame, but there's not much to say. Either you love DKM or you don't. Personally, I love and all in all we had an amazing time. 

K picked me up afterwards and I was definitely ready to call it a night. I realized that I lost my $136 monthly bus pass. You know, my transportation to/from work everyday. Awesome. And I lost my Chapstick. True, not a big deal but it was new and I really liked it. #firstworldproblems

Thursday morning was hell. I seriously considered taking the day off from work but the adult in me said no. If I'm going to party on school nights then I need to go to work the next day. I made it to work only 30 mins late (and didn't take lunch to offset it) and the day was just long. I was tired, my head hurt, all my muscles are sore. I knew I needed to wake up though. I had a 7pm bar date with the MBFF. We made a trade of GS cookies for SPD tickets and finalized crawl plans. 

Friday was tolerable. It felt like a filler day. Just going through the motions until bigger, badder Saturday could take place. Plus, it was a nice "break" to recharge for the weekend. 

Finally, it was here. Saturday. Crawl day. The day my liver doesn't want to be my friend. And for awhile, we frolicked along hand in hand.

2 of my faves. Love them.
St. Patty's isn't complete without a group shot with a
random person
This is pretty much the last thing I remember. I have a nasty habit of forgetting to eat while I'm drinking. Needless to say I spent a lot of time in the bathroom and  magically ended up home by 6pm. I immediately went to bed and woke up at 11:30 with a pounding headache. I popped some Tylenol  made a pizza and climbed back in bed with Optimus Prime, Bumblebee and the rest of the Autobots. I was back to sleep by 1:15am. 

You know what?

Best. St. Patrick's Day. Ever!

Linking up with:


  1. WHOA, I never would have made it up off the floor 1/2 way through the shot rounds at your pregame. I bow down to the master!!!!

  2. Sounds like a great weekend! I can't believe you did so many shots! We are like kindred spirits! Im sad that I didn't get to do a crawl this year :(

  3. I'm so glad you had such a fun weekend! I've been wanting to do a bar crawl on St. Pattys day forever and I want to do one more even now!! Lol minus the whole bathroom time, I know how that goes. Pizza is definitely the cure! :)

  4. I am glad you had such a wonderful wekeend!! looks like a blast!! PS so jelly of your curly hair!! mine never looks that cute!!

  5. Sounds like how one of my SPD would have gone. Include police and we are there. BUT I am your mother so...what about your bus pass. Oh Babe. !

  6. That's a lot of shots! I'm impressed. And I love DKM, too.

  7. I have a habit of eating TOO MUCH while I'm drinking. Which basically means: we need to start drinking TOGETHER.
