happy friday

This quiz will be probably seen all over today... If Blogger allows posting!
Check all that apply to you or that you agree with.
(my picks from the list)
You think the Corrs - and even U2 - are underrated.
You know what goes in an Irish coffee.
You know someone called "Mac" or "Murph".
You've lost your temper... many times. (this sentence doesn't apply to Irish people only, I have a teenager son!)
My outcome:

You're 20% Irish

You're not Irish. Not even a wee bit.
Not even on St. Patrick's Day!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
Yes, "we" are not Irish at all and there are no celebrations that I know of around here (remember this is Spain!), but I couldn't possibly miss this date, I have been seeing greens and shamrocks while surfing the net all week long! And here is a little something I found here and liked because of the Spanish-Irish combination:

Spanish singer Julio Iglesias was on television with British TV host Anne Diamond when he used the word 'manana'. Diamond asked him to explain what it meant. He said that the term means "maybe the job will be done to-morrow, maybe the next day, maybe the day after that. Perhaps next week, next month, next year. Who cares?" The host turned to Irishman Shay Brennan who was also on the show and asked him if there was an equivalent term in Irish. "No. In Ireland we don't have a word to describe that degree of urgency.", replied Brennan.


  1. Hi Mar...

    Blogger problems AGAIN!!! GRRRRRRR.

    I can'tbget to ceryain places myself...but I did try the link to my blog on youy blog...and Blogger allowed me to get there...Go Figure!!! It does seem like about once a month Blogger has it's "Period" know??? WShat do you suppose that is all about??? (LOL)
    Anyway...I thought I'd come on by and visit you cause I know you were at Michele's and couldn't get to me...! And I am 20% Irish, too! Funny, Funny.

  2. I got 35 percent -- hoo boy.

    Great joke, btw.

    I'm here from Michele's joint.

  4. Well, I actually am a tiny bit Irish, but have been known, by my Irish friends as a bit of a Celtist...i.e. somebody who does NOT love everything Irish. (For some reason in our neighborhood, it's sort of forced down our throats a bit too much.) Still, I hope you enjoy the day!

    Here via Michele's!

  5. I love it!! the world's most loved so-called "old" bloggers visited this morning! I feel honored :¬)

  6. I'm not Irisih but I still drink something green LOLOL... :)

    Have a great weekend sweets,

  7. It said I was 35% Irish which is kind of funny since that percentage is probably close to accurate in reality as well. Thanks for the link. Michele sent me.

  8. I am 70% Irish, *dances a jig whilst swigging from a pint of the black stuff* but then coming from the part of Wales I come from that's to be expected! The Irish are only a short swim away!

  9. Awww... I only got 25%. Funny truth- I'm half Irish, the other half Mexican... shucks. :)

  10. I am literally 38% Irish. I figured it out once. Do the Spanish have an equivelent holiday?

    OOPS from micheles.

    PS love the joke.

  11. Hi! Michele sent me ...

    And I'm 65 percent Irish. Even though I'm descended from Scandinavians. Go figure. (I think the swearing and the singing put me over the top.)

  12. I got 20%

    I dont have any irish in me but my older 2 kids do.

    Hugs Suz

  13. Its green day..............
    Over from the other Michele's

  14. I'm quite a bit Irish, but I believe they were Protestants, so most of my Irish-American friends don't count it. Everyone thinks I look Irish because of my red hair. For a $150 every 8 weeks, they could look Irish too.

    BTW, thanks for commenting on my blog. Nothing wrong with Bermuda, lovely place, wonderful, warm peopl but not a lot to do (esp. for kids) and the food isn't so good. Kentucky Fried Chicken is the busiest place on the island.

  15. Yeah, I'm on 20%. Oh well. I still love St. Pat's Day!

    Here via Michele!

  16. I was only 10% Irish, which is none at all apparently. It was the potato thing and boiled food. Those are the only ones I could relate to!

  17. I am not Irish at all either. I would not even know it was a holiday if it were not for notes coming home from school to wear green:)

  18. Happy St. Patrick's Day! I'm 35% Irish.

  19. Happy St. Pat's Day. Stephen here from FFMB, stopping by to say hello.
