Where streams of whiskey are flowing

Happy St. Patrick's Day! Today's my birthday! Yay! I'm 26 years old and I don't feel a day over 40. I am at work right now. It's probably the first time I've worked or gone to school on my birthday in a really long time. It's always been a policy of mine to take my birthday off. I'm only working til lunch, then I'm going to get a haircut (finally!) and heading back to Birmingham. I'm taking tomorrow off for rest and rehabilitation. The good thing about having a birthday on St. Pat's is that everyone else is celebrating, too. One of the main reasons that I'm going back to Birmingham is that, honestly, I plan to stay out late getting all boozed up proper and I just don't know that many people in Huntsville who are willing to do that during the workweek. Totally understandable, really. In Birmingham, though, I know a number of people who have night jobs and don't necessarily need to be at work tomorrow. Lucky me, huh? So there will be much Guinness and Irish Car Bombing tonight. Tomorrow I will feel like death warmed over but I'll get to see my family and do the birthday thing with them. My mother and her husband came into Huntsville on Sunday to bring me presents and cake. It was awesome. When I was living in Auburn my mother always made a point to come down on my birthday which is totally awesome of her.

Now for a quick list of my St. Pat's must-listen songs:

1) Dropkick Murphys - Barroom Hero
2) Flogging Molly - Death Valley Queen
3) The Pogues - Dirty Old Town
4) The Dubliners - Whiskey in the Jar
5) Tommy Makem - Wind that Shakes the Barley
6) Dropkick Murphys - Finnegan's Ball
7) The Pogues - Streams of Whiskey
8) Against Me! - Pints of Guinness Make Me Strong
9) Clancy Brothers - Whiskey You're the Devil
10) The Dubliners - Wild Rover
11) The Descendants - Lucky Charm
12) Bondo - Fuck You I'm Drunk
13) Flogging Molly - What's Left of the Flag

In all honesty, though, I'll be listening to nothing but Dropkick Murphys and Flogging Molly today. Hope y'all have a good one!
