Obama Joins America in Making Urgent St. Patrick’s Day Beer Run

by Kirsten Boyd Johnson

He's got his summit face on.
Barack O’Bama snuck out of the White House to visit an “undisclosed location” today, the official presidential St. Patrick’s Day euphemism for making a liquid lunch stop at an Irish bar. Here he is boozing it up with a very thrilled mob at The Dubliner during the nation’s annual summit on whether it is spelled “St. Paddy’s Day” or “St. Patty’s Day.” Is there a verdict, wasted bar patrons?

Eh, seems as good as any! More wire agency pictures of Barack Obama drinking Guinness with sloshed people dressed as leprechauns here. Happy Everyone Get Wasted Before Noon Day! [Twitter]

I just love a good beer blast on my birthday.

Barb March 17, 2012 at 4:24 pm

Happy birthday, my friend! I hope you have a wonderful day.

nounverb911 March 17, 2012 at 4:26 pm

Thanks, my parents always told me that the big parade down Fifth Ave was in my honor.

Barb March 17, 2012 at 4:39 pm

Do you have any big plans for your special day? Jeff and I are going to make tacos salads, drink beer and watch the University of New Mexico Lobos play basketball tonight.

nounverb911 March 17, 2012 at 4:43 pm

Just dinner with the spousal unit.

BerkeleyBear March 18, 2012 at 12:21 am

Great minds think sorta alike – we had friends over, I made awesome steak tacos with homemade guacamole, and I had several delicious Negra Modelos (the other adults went with red wine). Nothing says St. Paddy's day like Cinco de Mayo!

SorosBot March 17, 2012 at 4:39 pm

And what did they say about everyone puking on the sidewalk?

Barb March 17, 2012 at 4:41 pm

Soros, did you know that you and Rebecca share a birthday?

nounverb911 March 17, 2012 at 4:43 pm

It was something that every Catholic School High School kid on Long Island had to do at some point before they graduated. It made walking around the city interesting that day.

bitchincamaro2 March 17, 2012 at 5:34 pm

Ha ha! They lied to you. It's "up" Fifth Ave!

Blueb4sunrise March 17, 2012 at 4:28 pm

In my parents safe deposit box in Florida, I should get it next time I'm down there.

Happy happy Nounverb!

nounverb911 March 17, 2012 at 7:58 pm

Thank you, your editrixness.

FROTHY March 18, 2012 at 3:43 am

Happy birfdai!

Barb March 17, 2012 at 4:23 pm

Did he order a half & half, just curious.

anniegetyerfun March 17, 2012 at 5:59 pm

Black and tan.

Biel_ze_Bubba March 17, 2012 at 6:35 pm

That's a compromise that's not going to satisfy the TeaTards at all.

buffalogal March 17, 2012 at 7:29 pm

Settle an argument for me my friends: Is a "half & half" the same as a "black & tan" the same as a "black velvet." Need to know by noon tomorrow ….

Barb March 17, 2012 at 9:08 pm

Buffalogal, I am from Buffalo and you can trust me. They are the same.

Lascauxcaveman March 17, 2012 at 9:10 pm

It's all in the specifics…

buffalogal March 17, 2012 at 9:15 pm

Black & Tans don't have anywhere near the problems in Ireland as another favorite: Irish Car Bombs.

Limeylizzie March 18, 2012 at 9:23 am

Not in the UK they're not, in the UK Black Velvet is Guinness and Champagne, Black and Tan is one half Guinness and one half bitter.

Tundra Grifter March 19, 2012 at 11:05 am


I'm with you (as always). Black Velvet is beer and sparkling wine.

Unless you're talking about Black Velvet Canadian and ginger ale – a high school virginity cure.

SorosBot March 17, 2012 at 4:23 pm

Hey, it's late afternoon and I'm not sloshed yet – I guess I must be doing something wrong. At least I have my traditional orange shirt on.

Steverino247 March 17, 2012 at 8:53 pm

Fuck yeah. Orange is the way to go.

Terry March 17, 2012 at 9:01 pm

In parts of NYC and Southie, you'd make new friends wearing that color.

flamingpdog March 17, 2012 at 9:34 pm

When I was a pup, I insisted on orange for St. Patty's Day (Methodist). Later, I found out my Irish ancestors were Catholic when they came over on the boat. But I look awful in green anyway.

fuflans March 18, 2012 at 2:21 am

i'm pretty sure i'm supposed to be orange, but eh. my irish grandfather (orange i think) married my scottish grandmother on the way over to canada.

but in 2012, the key point is: i can be canadian and man, they drink like fiends.

FROTHY March 18, 2012 at 3:47 am

ORANGE!!?? SB, you could get your ass beat for that. Stay safe, dood.

arihaya March 17, 2012 at 4:24 pm

what would a Mormon president do at St Patrick's day? they can't drink, can they?

nounverb911 March 17, 2012 at 4:26 pm

He can baptize St. Patrick again.

Rotundo_ March 17, 2012 at 5:06 pm

Eat lime jello after having the corned beef and cabbage and soda bread. I think that might explain why the LDS church hasn't made a lot of headway in Ireland. When you have that kind of talent in brewing and distilling the nectar of the gods, accepting a religion that forbids ingesting it is a pretty tough sell.

arihaya March 18, 2012 at 6:00 am

almost as stupid as trying to Mormon-convert the champagne-chugging Frenchies

oh wait, Mittens did it

FROTHY March 18, 2012 at 3:48 am

He'd have a Co-cola.

Or aren't they allowed those, either?

Veritas78 March 18, 2012 at 3:06 pm

Fire some Irish employees?

CapnFatback March 17, 2012 at 4:25 pm

Good thing he didn't sign that woman's face. Nothing sets off a brawl in an Irish pub like a blah putting his hand on a white woman.

Terry March 17, 2012 at 9:05 pm

DC Irish pubs/bars are different than those in Boston of New York. Most people in the DC places work for the Federal government and many in a place like the Dubliner will have clearances. You won't see the collections for the "widows and orphans fund", although arguably that's on decline elsewhere as well. The DC places just work differently.

flamingpdog March 17, 2012 at 9:36 pm

Speaking of which, whatever happened to Wonkabout? That was the only way I ever knew what establishments to patronize on my rare visits back to teh DeeCee.

Biff March 17, 2012 at 9:46 pm

It's kinda dead these days.

HistoriCat March 17, 2012 at 11:40 pm

Arielle left DC to pursue higher education – I guess no one in the DC area was up to the challenge.

BerkeleyBear March 18, 2012 at 12:30 am

And while SF Irish bars did host a lot of IRA fundraisers (and even some non-Irish bars) mostly they are more open/welcoming to strangers of all kinds than in other Irish neighborhoods. Now, they still sing songs that only they understand, but if you look like you are having a good time no one is apt to kick your ass.

Terry March 18, 2012 at 7:53 am

I grew up in a neighborhood with several immigrant families, one of which was from China. I've gone with them to restaurants and community events as long as I can remember. Well, a few years back, I ask the son of that family who is about my age to go to an Irish pub in the DC area that was having live music last night. He immediately stressed out, saying that he can't go there, that they don't let Chinese people in, etc. Oh, yes, I'm going to take you someplace you're going to have trouble. I dragged him kicking and screaming. First beer, he was very self conscious. Second beer, hey, these songs are great and no one is looking at us funny. Third beer, singing along loudly and off key like he was a frickin life long member of the AOH.

Doktor StrangeZoom March 17, 2012 at 4:29 pm

OT good news (and yeah, posted on the last thread, too, so sue me): In a rare moment of decency and political courage (and probable political suicide), Utah's Gov. Gary Herbert has vetoed the abstinence-only sex ed bill.

He will almost certainly not be re-nominated by the Utah Republican convention. He made the Teahadis mad:

Sen. Margaret Dayton, co-sponsor of the bill, said she was disappointed the governor hadn’t contacted her to discuss his concerns and said teaching children about contraception is comparable to telling kids not to do drugs, then showing them how to "mainline" heroin. [quote highlighted on previous thread by Fukui-sanYesOta]

commiegirl March 17, 2012 at 5:01 pm

I am actually shocked by that! Thanks for the Moment in Actual Political Courage! Bye-bye now.

Lascauxcaveman March 17, 2012 at 9:17 pm


As long as he uses his soapbox to shout long and hard that IGNORANCE IS NOT THE ANSWER. And the Republicans are promoting IGNORANCE.

Negropolis March 18, 2012 at 12:54 am

I have to say I was surprised being that Utah is one of the reddest states in the nation, if not the reddest as far as presidential voting is concerned. Signing that kind of legislation is a conservative give-me in even far more averagely red states. That he picked the battle on this is kind of amazing, 'cause, I could totally see Jon Huntsman signing this, even if he didn't believe in it.

FROTHY March 18, 2012 at 3:54 am

According to what I've been reading of late, parents have been putting pressure on him to veto. But what would I know. News is slow over here.

slowhansolo March 17, 2012 at 4:32 pm

He's just rubbing it in for all those Irish-cursed.

johnnyzhivago March 17, 2012 at 4:33 pm

President O'Bama????

@nonverb911 – Happy Birthday from another St. Paddy's Day Birthday Boy!

nounverb911 March 17, 2012 at 4:34 pm

Same to you.

Barb March 17, 2012 at 4:40 pm

Johnny! It's your birthday too? Truly, I hope you have an incredibly wonderful day. Happy Birthday!

johnnyzhivago March 17, 2012 at 4:45 pm

Thanks very much Barb!!!

not that Dewey March 17, 2012 at 4:46 pm

I ☘ O'Bama

And happy birthday!

johnnyzhivago March 17, 2012 at 5:42 pm

Thanks, other Dewey!

FROTHY March 18, 2012 at 3:54 am

Well, happy birfdai to you too, johnnyz.

johnnyzhivago March 18, 2012 at 8:35 am

Thanks Frothy – I spent the day looking for my long form birth certificate!

Blueb4sunrise March 17, 2012 at 4:33 pm

If you click on the buzzfeed link….STOP SCROLLING at the FOURTH PIC.

Tundra Grifter March 17, 2012 at 4:38 pm

Ten bucks sez that's a root beer.

imissopus March 17, 2012 at 4:57 pm

The sheriff drinks near-beer!

Negropolis March 18, 2012 at 12:56 am

Actually, he drinks malt liquor.

not that Dewey March 17, 2012 at 4:48 pm

He looks genuinely happy.

Now, kill him.

DonnyKerabotsos March 17, 2012 at 4:51 pm

Buzzfeed? Buzz kill is more like it.

snoopyfan2010 March 17, 2012 at 4:54 pm

Meh. Meh. Still…..meh.

Terry March 17, 2012 at 9:09 pm

Santorum looks like a dickweed even on St Pat's holding a Guiness. He just can't go against kind.

flamingpdog March 17, 2012 at 9:39 pm

Too late.

Tundra Grifter March 17, 2012 at 4:38 pm

Why did Mr. Obama insist of wearing his official Presidential jacket on his day off?

Heck, he's in DC. Was he afraid people wouldn't recognize him?

Advn2rgirl March 17, 2012 at 4:51 pm

Actually, "[t]he president, thwarting any would-be pinchers with a pale moss-green jacket that read "National Parks, America's Best Idea," just saved the Secret Service a truckload of work.

Tundra Grifter March 18, 2012 at 11:41 am

Thank you for pointing that out! I was just looking at the photos.

Perhaps he should have worn one of those snazzy Smokey T. Bear hats. Then nobody would have recognized him!

snoopyfan2010 March 17, 2012 at 4:52 pm

He IS blah, duh.

FROTHY March 18, 2012 at 3:58 am

And thus at risk for being randomly shot/arrested/beaten by any WAAH person on the street unless he distinguishes himself in some way.

snoopyfan2010 March 18, 2012 at 9:41 am

Sad but true. Been to Florida lately???

flamingpdog March 17, 2012 at 9:41 pm

They all look alike, doncha know?

FROTHY March 18, 2012 at 4:01 am

True story: Ex's cousin (who is 5'`10" female of Junoesque build with black hair and brown eyes) was in Africa with the VSO (British version of the peace corps, kinda), and her partner was this tiny little blonde woman with blue eyes. Riding back on her bike to the village where she then lived, one day, she stopped some of the African villagers to ask if they had seen her partner. The villagers opined as how they thought she was her partner, anaconda "all you people look alike."

It's one of my favourite stories.

neiltheblaze March 17, 2012 at 4:42 pm

In honor of St. Patrick's Day, I'm eating Italian food tonight!

My sainted Irish-American mom once said to me, after I asked why it was we never had it – "Neil, life is too short for corned beef and cabbage. Now, go get me a beer."

Drink up, everyone!

fuflans March 18, 2012 at 2:23 am

ha! we had chinese. it's fucking 80 degrees in chicago and there's no way i'm eating cabbage.

FROTHY March 18, 2012 at 4:02 am


Advn2rgirl March 17, 2012 at 4:42 pm

Why does Jonathan Ernst of Reuters think the President is an (R)?

DetectiveGrey March 19, 2012 at 10:12 am

Oh, thank Jegus I'm not the only one who noticed that. *facepalm*

Advn2rgirl March 19, 2012 at 1:46 pm

Hmm…now I'm kind of embarassed:
Karen Pastor, Mar 19 10:15 (EDT):
Dear Advn2rgirl,
Please be informed that according to our editorial team, the caption you are referring to means Obama is for right, not for Republican. Thank you for taking the time to write.
Kind regards, Team


GuanoFaucet March 17, 2012 at 4:43 pm

The true moment of Santorum's St. Patty's Day pub visit came when a woman yelled:

"Sign my bottle of lube!"

bitchincamaro2 March 17, 2012 at 5:48 pm

To which Rick responded, "K. Why?"

FROTHY March 18, 2012 at 4:02 am

Notice that Li'l Ricky is pictured drinking ALONE. I'm betting no Irishman/woman who celebrates the day would drink with HIM.

ManchuCandidate March 17, 2012 at 4:50 pm

Barack Obama, the drunks, the drunks are yelling
From pub to pub, and down the drunken bar line
The winter's gone, and all the Republicans are lying
'Tis you, 'tis you must go and I must bide.
But come ye back when Santorum's got no mojo
Or when the Mitten's fucking up for the status quo
'Tis I'll be here in sunshine or in shadow
Barack Obama, Barack Obama, taking the middle so.

fartknocker March 17, 2012 at 4:53 pm

Faux news will spin this into something negative like: "Instead of fixing gas prices, the President spent Saturday drinking whisky in an Irish Bar." I can here that lisping be-otch Gret babbling something along these lines. March 17, 2012 at 4:54 pm

"Alcoholic Osama Binge drinks, abuses Michelle" <—–Totally the headline you will see on fox news with this pic..

anniegetyerfun March 17, 2012 at 6:03 pm

SHOULD the President really be drinking when the nation is at an elevated terror alert? YOU DECIDE.

DrunkIrishman March 17, 2012 at 4:54 pm


FROTHY March 18, 2012 at 4:04 am

You're drunk, aren't you? (notices monicker)

Never mind.

imissopus March 17, 2012 at 4:56 pm

Isn't every day Happy Everyone Get Wasted Before Noon Day around this place?

Fukui-sanYesOta March 17, 2012 at 5:03 pm

I missed it by waking up too late, but now, in honour of the bog-messicans, I'll be drinking tequila washed down with Tecate. Woohoo!

MLHencken March 17, 2012 at 4:59 pm

It's not St. Patrick's day until someone vomits on the bar while someone else fucks up the toilet.

anniegetyerfun March 17, 2012 at 6:03 pm

When he visited Moneygall a couple of years ago, the news coverage of the excited Irish people was so charming, I mentioned it at a business dinner. My boss, who simply does not CARE for black people, said, "I saw that. It doesn't make any sense!" and I shrieked "IT DOES TOO HE'S HALF WHITE SO IT MAKES PERFECT SENSE SHUT UP." I had had a bit to drink that evening.

FROTHY March 18, 2012 at 4:10 am

When Obama won the elections, my crazed Irish friends called me at some ungodly hour of the morning from their home in the Gaeltacht. I think they were in a bar somewhere, all I could hear was the Barack Obama song in the background as the gelz screamed "It's the luck of the Irish! Barack O'Bama won because of the luck of the Irish!" I was SO glad he'd won, because some years earlier we had gone to visit there, and got no end of blather from the irate citizens who were greatly resentful about the re-election of Gee Dumb Yeah Bush. I think if McCain had won, the would've killed me in the killingest way.

SpeedoFart March 17, 2012 at 5:02 pm

But I thought he was a MOOOOSLIM!

*head asplode!*

FROTHY March 18, 2012 at 4:11 am

Ah, yeah, it's those Black Irish, don't you know, like as not some of them were Moose-Lumps.

DahBoner March 17, 2012 at 5:09 pm

"Sign my face"

As O'bama's great great great grandfather from Moneygall, Ireland once said:

Do you have any Irish in ya?

Well then lass, would you like some?

coolhandnuke March 17, 2012 at 5:41 pm

Oh it's well I do remember, that bleak
December day,
The landlord and the sheriff came, to drive
Us all away
They set my roof on fire, with their cursed
English spleen
And that's another reason why I left old

bitchincamaro2 March 17, 2012 at 5:42 pm

"One woman loudly, and drunkenly urged the President to 'shit on my fashe'; the President declined, but later urinated on the cat behind the bar." — fixed

Happy St Patrick's Day!

FROTHY March 18, 2012 at 4:11 am

Happy St. Paddy's to you too!

Antispandex March 17, 2012 at 5:45 pm

Yes, yes, "sign my face", right, I understand, the new rules and stuff, we get it. But, here's the deal on this St. Pat's day thing, for you who don't know how we roll. If you are Irish, or part Irish, have ever seen an Irishman, or viewed a Jameson's ad, you must drink today. Look, I'm Irish, but I don't make the rules, that's just the way it is.

C_R_Eature March 17, 2012 at 5:47 pm

Barry is just too cool. It's just too bad he couldn't show up a little later and then the encounter would go all:
"Hey, Mishter Preshtidunt! Shighn this here barrr schtool and sit on mah face!"

I love the Black Irish.

Happy St. Patrick's/BirthdayPalooza Everybody!

FROTHY March 18, 2012 at 4:12 am

You too, dood!

Limeylizzie March 17, 2012 at 5:58 pm

OT But we are waiting for MrLimeylizzie's daughter to have her baby on St Paddy's Day, she just went to the hospital in full labour!

SpeedoFart March 17, 2012 at 6:08 pm

So exciting! Congrats!

ThundercatHo March 17, 2012 at 6:37 pm

How wonderful! Please let us know when the wee bairn makes his or her arrival. Is this the first LL grandchild?

Limeylizzie March 17, 2012 at 6:49 pm

No, this is the second, MrLL has twin daughters and they are BOTH pregnant right now, one due today and the other due in August.

Steverino247 March 17, 2012 at 8:59 pm

I hope everyone comes out OK.

Limeylizzie March 17, 2012 at 10:22 pm

Thanks, one down, she was born at 4.45pm West Coast Time, just beautiful, no name yet.

Barb March 17, 2012 at 11:02 pm

Lizzie, I also have two daughters who are both pregnant and due on the same day! One of Jeffer's vendors took us out to dinner and I mentioned this fact and he said, "Well, we know what they both like to do on the same day 5 months ago" Ha, ha, ha! What a jerk! He just lost MILLIONS of dollars in sales over that stupid statement.

Steverino247 March 18, 2012 at 12:26 am

I would think "interesting coincidence" would be as far as one should push that. My wife is nine months younger than I am so a similar joke has been made for many, many years, but I'm not going to make that comment at a business dinner. What a maroon!

Limeylizzie March 18, 2012 at 9:26 am

Fuck him and Congratulations to you! Kate had her baby yesterday afternoon, so beautiful and huge…well 8.5lbs.

DemmeFatale March 17, 2012 at 9:27 pm

I hope her labor is short and sweet, and that the baby sleeps through the night!
(And has that heavenly baby-smell.)

Limeylizzie March 18, 2012 at 12:25 am

Carlotta Lynn Juniper Belle is now on planet earth

Steverino247 March 18, 2012 at 3:21 am

So, she gets an account here at Wonkette for her first birthday or will you resist spoiling her like that?

Pretty name, too.

flamingpdog March 17, 2012 at 9:47 pm

Be sure to tell her that everybody at teh Wonkette wholeheartedly supports the labour movement when you see her next!

anniegetyerfun March 17, 2012 at 6:00 pm

I'm eagerly awaiting the photos of Mitt Romney enjoying a beer at a local pub. As one of the people.

DarwinianDemon March 17, 2012 at 6:06 pm

I'll have you know he had two Ensures and will party til the crack of 5 pm

flamingpdog March 17, 2012 at 9:49 pm

Never happen, but I can assure that he knows the owners of at least two major breweries.

Bonzos_Bed_Time March 18, 2012 at 12:58 am


Antispandex March 17, 2012 at 6:11 pm

BTW, I was totally unaware that the Muslins, like Obama, celebrated St, Patrick's Day.

trampndirtdown March 17, 2012 at 6:43 pm

Too bad I would have liked to see the pres put his signature backwards B on her face.

pinkocommi March 17, 2012 at 6:44 pm

This reminds me how appreciative I am that Mitt Romney's candidacy has single-handedly laid to rest all the talk about Obama being out-of-touch with the average American. Enjoy your beer, Mr. President. You've earned it.

Lynne March 17, 2012 at 8:30 pm

This is my very favorite comment here today!

Abernathy March 17, 2012 at 6:51 pm

Ugh. I clicked the link to more pics, scrolled down to the end of the page, hoping for something more scandalous, and was rickrolled into a pool of santorum.

ElPinche March 17, 2012 at 7:13 pm

That's my Barry. Never too drunk to fix amurka and a frag a terrorist or two.

donner_froh March 17, 2012 at 7:53 pm

O'bama might be a Muslim but everyone is Irish on St. Patrick's Day.

FROTHY March 18, 2012 at 4:14 am

I'll drink to that! Erin go bragh!

horsedreamer_1 March 18, 2012 at 6:48 pm

I dated a gal who was friends with an Algerian-Irish guy. He was pasty as hell, a ginger — totally Celtic. But, he followed mom's religion & prayed to Mecca.

Kind of a mindfuck.

Sharkey March 17, 2012 at 8:31 pm

He's like 5 Guinnesses in by now, let the good times roll!

labman57 March 17, 2012 at 8:46 pm

Imagine if Mitt Romney was celebrating St. Patty's Day during a photo op on the campaign trail ….

"I love the Irish. And my favorite drink is an Irish Coffee … without the whiskey or the coffee. And I love potatoes. And green is my favorite color. And did I tell you that I ate some Lucky Charms for breakfast?"

Barry seems a little uncomfortable. Hmmmm. In a bar surrounded by drunk white men. I can't understand why he would be, and where are the dudes with the sunglasses and earbuds, fer Chrissakes?

DahBoner March 17, 2012 at 10:56 pm

Yeah, I heard this guy was a little uncomfortable when he went out one night in his native New York City into a bar full of drunk Irish white NYPD guys:

ttommyunger March 17, 2012 at 11:15 pm

That would make me uncomfortable, and I'm white and can take a nap on an anthill at high noon.

SorosBot March 18, 2012 at 12:31 am

Well, that's understandable; I mean, one night in Bangkok can make a hard man tumble…

Barrelhse March 17, 2012 at 10:48 pm

I was there.
She said "sit on my face."

Angry_Marmot March 17, 2012 at 11:30 pm

Fox is reporting this as "you spit on my race."

FROTHY March 18, 2012 at 4:43 am

and tell me that you love me
I'll sit on your face … wut? We're not SUPPOSED to be drunkenly partying?

Damn, I'm ALWAYS fucking late to teh party.

BeercanJim March 18, 2012 at 12:27 am

Awesome, good for him. A Muslim wouldn't do that. Besides I don't trust anyone that doesn't drink.

Went to the Buzzfeed link and scrolled until I got to Santorum's mug all up in my sightline, and then I regretted clicking. Truth in advertisment, you bastards.

The orphaned child in the upper left is distracting.

The media misheard the woman. She wasn't saying "sign my face" rather "boo urns."

Completely OT – but hilarious – (in German, but watch it closely)

Um, you're supposed to wear green, Mr. President.

You know who else venerates the color green?

Also on St. Patrick's Day, a liberal, a conservative and a moderate walked into a bar.

The gentleman behind the mahogany said "What'll you have, Mitt?"

[I just heard that on the radio.]

Do we? Us and George Harrison?

Wait, if it's George Harrison's then we do share a birthday – along with Rashida Jones (yum, and hilarious) and Carrot Top (urrgh). Cool.

Very good! I'd suggest some names, but that would be too much like work (long story). Very happy for you!

Wonderful, Liz!

She has been named Carlotta Lynn Juniper Belle

Quite a threesome. & considering Rashida got her actuarial start in the Socially Awkward Apatovian Repetory, I connect she'd be into Carror Top.

The best days are when babies arrive. God, I am so behind on my knitting, Lizzie. I have to try harder.
