Got Green Blogfest 2.0 - Kiss Me I'm Irish

Click the image above to check out all of the entries
Mark over @ Aloha! Mark Koopmans says hi from Hi is hosting the Got Green Blogfest 2.0 -- he's giving us free reign to write about whatever we'd like-- so I'm going to take this opportunity to share a song and the story of Finn.
I had the pleasure of seeing Gaelic Storm in 2010-- talk about a high energy show!  Okay, okay-- they may be L.A. based and, the music may be both Irish & Scottish in inspiration-- but this celtic band knows how to jam.  (Neat fact- they played in the famous dancing scene between Jack & Rose in the movie Titanic-- how cool!)

Kiss Me I'm Irish - Gaelic Storm

Eyes glazed over, Finn stumbled left and then right and then left again as the music blasted from every speaker.  The bar was full of people covered in glittering green hats, dressed as Leprechauns and enjoying green Miller Lite beer on tap- $2.  With his eyes closed, he began to sing,
Kiss me, I'm Irish!
I am the wild rover.
My eyes they are smiling,
And I'm seldom sober.
I like my whiskey,
And I love to dance,
So if you're feeling as lucky as me, take a chance,
And kiss me, I'm Irish...
Suddenly, a large pair of lips pressed against his.  At first gentle, the mouths movements became  hurried revealing the sandpaper like roughage of his assailants upper lip.  Startled, Finn popped his eyes open.  There stood his roommate, John, laughing hysterically, 'You said you were Irish, bro!'
