Awkward Moments Day
What is an Awkward Moment?

It is that brief moment in time when we feel inept, embarassed, unsure, or uneasy. They are those brief seconds which seem like minutes and those minutes which seem like hours. It is the time we lose some of our lofty self image. It is that humbling period of time when confidence is replaced by uncertainty and the arrogant become mere mortals again.**

St. Patrick’s Day
Celebrating the patron saint of Ireland, its said that on St. Patrick’s Day everyone is Irish! The day is celebrated worldwide with parades, green beer and parties!

Kiss Me I’m Irish buttons will be everywhere and wearing the color of the Irish – green – has become ‘de rigeur.’  The color’s found everywhere today, with green hair making a big showing, as well as green food items – bagels, McDonald’s milk shakes, cereal milk, and of course green beer.

And while some cities paint the traffic stripes of their parade routes green, Chicago will be dying its river green. Savannah GA turns its downtown city fountains green and in Indianapolis the Central Canal will be green.

Even GW and the White House are joining in the celebration by issuing a proclamation naming March Irish-American Heritage Month.

Our very own local ”Wee Man” made the news today with a story of his seasonal job as a “Professional Leprechaun.” 

Leprechaun impersonator Scott Seidman, a 4-foot-1 Long Islander, will spend more than 12 hours as the life of St. Patrick’s Day parties across Manhattan tomorrow. From   bar to bar to nightclubs Seidman will be keep us smiling into the wee early morning. 

Seidman has been praised for his professionalism as it seems finding reputable leprechauns is not easy! According to the promoter for the night club Pacha…

“We have had some nightmare leprechauns over the years,” the promoter says. “A lot of them can’t hold their liquor, and then you have intoxicated leprechauns and they pass out and when they’re drunk they look under girls’ skirts and are running around all over the place.”

(I’m sorry but drunk little people running around looking up skirts is just hysterical!)

Anyway good luck to our very own “Wee Man”!
