does one-sixteenth count?

Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone. I celebrated the one-sixteenth of my Irish heritage by eating a salad for dinner. It was mostly green.

It ain't easy bein' green!!

Thanks for the great comment on the Flight of the Hornets post, Carolyn.

And yes, I also have some minuscule amount of Irish blood in me as well ....

Do stay in touch

I think it's easy being green - but then I am one whole half Irish!

On Saint Paddy's day, everyone's Irish.

Mummy worked out she's 6% Irish so I gave her 6% of my soda bread and honey :@D

Well, I did enjoy that little post, very much.
Heaven only knows what I am, England was invaded so often, I could be a hybrid of anything! I do love the Irish accent though though and their music and country!

You deserve your place in the green funfest for sure. Happy St. Pattys Day. I am green with envy that you carry a 1/3rd more luck that me. No fair.

I'm 1/8. Neener neener neener.

I had a grilled cheese sandwich.

It was on potato bread though.

My maiden name is Irish, but the blood? About 1/4.

I wore my only green shirt yesterday, but it was a total fluke :)

My boyfriend is half Irish. Does that count? I also ate a salad for dinner. It was mostly green.

Came over from David's.

Yes it counts! My son is half Irish so I count that on the basis that he is related to me! I am Irish if it suits... ;0)

Great post.

Quilly miscounted. I'm only 1/4 Irish - and that 1/4 was no end of trouble, not least by not making sure about that 1/2. Neither the priest nor the relations were amused ...

Green is good - unless it's "green about the gills". Now if "green" only meant we humans could photosynthesize (not likely in a BC winter, I know ...)

To the single celled organism - your human photosynthesis idea sounds like a good one. Why don't you work on that there in sunny Hawaii where your Vitamin D levels are probably thriving? I'll just sit here in rainy Vancouver and pray it stops raining long enough that I can actually take advantage of your scientific breakthrough when in comes through. Do I sound bitter and jealous????? ;-)
