“Get there before 5. It turns into a zoo when the masses clock out.”
“I added my digital camera to the kit. Odd things happen on Paddys Day. I hope to be able to download a few photos for y'all.”
“Happy Paddy's Day!! I already got pinched!! Dang kids! Wearing green now though.”
“Me too, Gem!! Tuck pinched me this morning before he was even totally awake. I yelped and said, hey, I'm wearing green!!!!”
Paddy's day kit
“Corn Beef - check
Stew, spuds, carrots & Cabbage - check
Guinness - check
I am ready.”
“I took a corned beef out of the freezer this morning. I'm guessing it'll still be a solid rock when I get home from work.
No Guniess for me, though, I can't stand the stuff!”
“i think i'll make a nice leprechaun stew, mmmm.”
“Never been pinched, don't have to worry about it, got green eyes :)”
“Holy cow. When getting dressed, I totally forgot what today was. And I happened to put on a spring green sweater anyhow. Hooray for me. Must be the genes. LOL!”
“Yep, I got the green eye too. :)”
“Yeah right honey! you still tryin' to get people to buy that?”
“Only cause its true!!!”
“It's true that they're blue.”
“You are so colorblind my dear.”
“There are plenty of pictures of you out there on the web honey, you might want to look at them :P
I'm afraid I have to break this to you once again, you have blue eyes with a layer of brown around the iris. This combination methinks is interpreted by some truly colorblind people as green. But they are most assuredly not green. sorry :(”
“Tell that to my mom.....”
“finally I find the psychology behind the green eye obsession, quite freudian!”
“Oh whatever...you are so stubborn!”
“You see honey it's a big catch-22 for me -
I could agree with you about what color you think your eyes are but one day, maybe 20 years from now, you're gonna look in the mirror and realize that your eyes are blue and then you'd get angry at me for either
a.lying to you for all those years about what color your eyes are.
b. never paying enough attention to you to realize what color your eyes are.”
“Fortunately for me, my wife's eyes change color so I'm covered either way.”
“Bit, mine do too. BUT - they are mostly green. And, everyone in my family, all my friends, basically everyone I know in my life agrees that my eyes are hazel-green. Except for Bison. So me thinks he is slightly colorblind.”
“Yah, hers are sort of a hazel-green too, but when we were on our honeymoon in Jamaica, they seemed to be a much brigther blue for some reason. My son got her eyes, lucky devil.”
“I love wearing the color sage or olive, because it makes my eyes turn that same greeny color. Very cool. They are technically blue, but the gold around my pupils makes them look green sometimes.

“My kit helped, and I got loads of swag from our liquor reps.”
“Pixie - That is exactly the deal with embear's eyes brown around the pupil, but mostly blue, makes them appear green sometimes but they're really not... Please explain this to her...”
“I'd have to see her eyes myself before I'm gonna tell her what color they are. Nice try tho! LOL~!”
“Sorry... green body parts do not count for St Pady's Day. I could say I had a gree toe fungus and that counted. Sorry... green eye 9which are even questionable) don't cut it.”
“What color do they look like to you???
“Has currahee resurfaced yet?”
“I think he's still out.”
“Those are the most Beautiful blue eyes I've ever seen! 8)
although they actually look kinda grey in that pic.

“Do my eyes look like my shirt? I dont think so. :)
I win! I win!”
“they don't look like kermit the frog either...
Either way I'll be gazing into them in 9 hours! Yee Haw!”
“Ok, in that pic the one eye looks greenish and the other more blue. But I would have to say, Embear's eyes look pretty green to me. Especially since she is wearing blue in the picture.

“Look pretty green in that pic? Talk about color blind. Neither eye in that pic has even a hint of green, look at the border around the page here, that is green. Once again, I think your eyes are getting confused by the brown around her pupils, In some peoples vision it mixes with and becomes indistinguishable from the blue, I expect causing some people to think that they are seeing green.”
“Bison, havent you guessed by now that YOU are the one who is colorblind???
Oh, and just because you have emerald green eyes doesnt mean mine have to look like the border here.

“It's not that you're eyes aren't a different shade of green my dear, your eyes are blue. If she saw the same pic, except with the brown taken out from around your pupil, she wouldn't see any green in your eyes.”
“They're green, and I'm alive.”
“can we settle on blue/green?”
