Some Random Thoughts from B. Mac

Published by at 8:12 pm under Comedy,Navel-Gazing,News,Superhero Nation

  • Notre Dame just announced that the President is doing our commencement speech this year.  I’ve always been opposed to the idea of commencements and do not plan to attend mine, regardless of the speaker.  This announcement merely makes it absolutely certain that my absence will cause my parents to flip out.  They’re still sore that I successfully missed my high school commencement, even though I had a valid excuse then.
  • In other Notre Dame news, the police busted my St. Patrick’s Day party.  Very exciting.
  • Over these past three days, we’ve been averaging 1000 visitors per day.  That’s about three times as many as normal.

    Dude, Obama is going to be there! Just go for that and then leave when he’s finished!

    I don’t enjoy large crowds.

    I read that article on your “party”. Sounds like it was a crazy night!
    The Onion is a funny site.

    It’s hilarious. Have you seen the Larry King skit?

    Saint Pat’s day for me is a day of Irish jokes, green cordial sold at the school canteen and people (badly) faking Irish accents.

    I wouldn’t have it any other way!

    My brother in Japan saw a band of Irishmen participate in a St. Patrick’s Day march in Nagoya. So, get this: Irishmen are celebrating an Irish-American festival about what it means to be Irish, in Japan. That’s globalization for you.

    1000 visitors per day? Clearly it’s all thanks to me! (and that new website title that makes the site more prominent in a Google search…)

    I think St. Patrick’s Day is the only national holiday celebrated worldwide. It’s fun though, being part Irish myself.
    Also, that Larry King Live skit is hilarious.

    I <3 Numb3rs. I haven’t watched it in quite a while so I’d be rather lost, perhaps, but it’s a great show. The Unit is-was-too, until that guy got killed and then it started being too much drama and less fighting and just general confusion. For me, at least.

    Oh-I think I’m like 5-10% Irish. That’s it. I wish I was at least half Irish.

  11. B. Macon 22 Mar 2009 at 6:40 pm

    I’d say that the main advantage of being half-Irish is that I can rearrange the letters of my name into “Ken McBrazen.” If only I could use that as my pen-name…

    Hey, my family’s Irish too! Or we were a few generations ago. But still, I’m pretty proud of that heritage.

    I got an awesome last name out of it too. :D

    The closet thing I am to Irish…well…I know Irish people. :-)

    I’m african american and some portuguese.

    I’m 1/4 Irish.

    Other Saint Patrick’s Day news…

    I went to school that day, and for some reason the majority of my classmates was wearing shamrock stickers on their foreheads. Here’s the scene.

    ME: *goes up to guy in my class* Why are you guys wearing shamrock stickers?

    GUY: *turns to me* The question is, Wings (not telling first name, ALL HAIL PARANOIA!), why aren’t you wearing a shamrock sticker?

    ME: *speechless for the moment* …..

    Welcome to my life, peoples.
