[color=#000000ost_uid0]Hehe. With a boyfriend from Ireland, you find it hard to not forget their favorite holiday. [/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]Well, I'm 1/4 Irish, 1/4 English, and 1/2 Scottish...so technically I should be in a bar, beating myself up, then having a round of tea and crumpets.

Ah...saint paddy's day...[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]Irish name, traces of Scottish, all diluted in a sea of Sassenach. Dad's family (Maguire) are (were) Irish nobility (many, many, many moons ago), and Mum's descended from English nobility (see previous qualifier). One half of me should be trying to exterminate the other.

I didn't wear green today. Patrick and I don't see eye to eye (mostly 'cause he's been dead for ~1500 years).[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]I'm part Irish. Not a lot, but then, I'm not a lot of anything other than Canadian. I'd planned to have the links light up green for St. Patrick's Day instead of blue, but forgot about it until it was too late, so I just reused last year's March 17 decoration.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]I've no Irish in me what so ever, but I guess everyone's a little Irish on St. Patties Day

I made some Irish Soda Bread for the occasion, winning a bet with a friend that you could make a non-dessert bread without yeast.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]A lot of my fathers family are Irish, so I guess that makes me part Irish. What I really wish I had in me was more Scottish, but I don't really despite the fact the better part of my life has been spent there so far.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]Ah, that nebulous state of being that is a multigenerational Canadian.

Heheh.

[color=#000000ost_uid0]I know I have French in me, and English and German (shocker, with a last name like "Saxon"). No Irish, that I know of.

I wore green on Monday, mainly so that I could bug Derek about not wearing it.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]^ Ahem. Your last name is Dean.

I have no idea what my ancestry is. Since I was born in America, that should make me a native American.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000:post_uid0][quote:post_uid0]Ahem. Your last name is Dean.[/quote:post_uid0]

Believe it or not, I'm aware of that. ;) Sometimes I forget, but not that time. Writing "shocker, being born with a last name like Saxon" just seemed too long, so I decided the "being born" part could be understood.

Of course, my decision not to do it that way has resulted in extra posts, which are even longer. Perhaps I should have thought ahead.

In any case, "Dean" has nothing to do with my roots. So :p.[/color:post_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]All this talk about what our backrounds are reminds me of a song called "You Fill Out Your Census" or something similar by the Capitol Steps. Went something like this...

[quoteost_uid0][iost_uid0]You Fill out you Census
With a number two pencil
First fill in your last name
and then your address
But soon they start askin'
Are 'ya native Alaskan
And soon his small task is
Becoming a Mess
My mom's half Hawaiian
Her dad's two-thirds Mayan
My uncle's half-brother
Startin' boys in the Hauge
His aunt's anglo-saxan
Just like Michael (sp?) Jackson
What to do I am askin
If you're Tiger Woods![/iost_uid0][/quoteost_uid0]

But no matter how we origionated, we are all American. Or Canadian Or...from Earth. Whatever.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]Wow. A Gypsy in the mix. Cool.

I'm French (25%), Moroccan Arabic (25%), Polish/Mixed Slavic (50%). But I don't know anyone in my maternal grandfather's family. I can't speak Polish, either, although I know a few words:

tak = yes
nie = no
wodka = vodka
Polska = Poland

TA DA! *ahem* HARDEST LANGUAGE from Europe. DEAR GOD.

Actually, we're having a similar discussion at DC. I think Babs has the coolest background so far: Blackfoot, Chinese, Black Irish. Although Kitty's Chinese-Samoan is cool too.

Please, please, [iost_uid0]please[/iost_uid0] don't call me a gypsie. Every time I hear that word, I think of that creepy guy from [iost_uid0]Choclat[/iost_uid0]. Please don't make me think of that awful movie... At least [iost_uid0]I[/iost_uid0] hated it. :swear:[/colorost_uid0]
