Happy St. Patrick's Day

 It is St. Patrick's Day, the traditional Irish holiday where (at least int he United States) people celebrate a saint driving the snakes out of Ireland by getting falling down drunk and vomiting in the streets. One thing I won't be missing this year.

I wanted to pick an Irish bloke for a picture, and settled on Cillian Murphy. He is a fantastic actor that has been in staring in Pinky Blinders for years. I have never seen Pinky Blinders. I did, however love him in Inception and Dunkirk.

I also saw him live in a one man show (which I normally HATE) called Misterman. It has played in Ireland, London and I saw it in Brooklyn. Oddly, I saw Susan Sarandon at the show. Only now, in investigating Cillian (pronounced sil-lee-an) that I saw he was in a movie with Sarandon right before the show was here. Makes more sense now.

Anyway, Happy Saint Patty's Day tp Cillian and all the Irish out there. And to those "honorary Irish" that wake up with massive hang-overs tomorrow.

  1. I am new to this fan club as I just binge watched Peaky Blunders a few months ago (mainly because I thought the girl from The Queen's Gambit was one of the main cast members; she's not) He's mesmerizing.


I am pretty sure this has been paraphrased
