Happy Beer Drinking Day!
March 17th, 2010 by slangon

Or as my mom calls it, St. Paddy’s Day. In honor of all the boisterous teens who were cutting school in order to go to the NYC St. Patrick’s Day Parade that were on my train this morning, preventing me from reading my newspaper in peace, and the drunken fools who will inevitably be on […]
