I hope everyone had an awesome St. Patrick’s Day! The last couple of days we have been celebrating St. Patricks Day, but do you actually know what we are celebrating? I have to be honest, I didn’t know! So that is why I looked it up for you, so you will be ready for next year!

Saint Patrick was the patron saint of Ireland and one of the most celebrated religious figures around the world. When he was 16 we was kidnapped from his native land, England, by a group of pirates. They brought him to Ireland where he was sold into slavery. From his master he had to work as a shepherd and feed all the animals. He turned to his religion for comfort from the Lord and he prayed every day. After six years of slavery he escaped from his master. He returned to his home country England, where he decided to become a priest.

One night he had a dream about the Irish people calling him to convert them to Christianity. So, after finishing his study and preparing for several years Saint Patrick returned to Ireland as a Christian missionary. He was able to bring upon a massive religious shift to Christianity by converting people of power. He laid the groundwork for the establishment of hundreds of monasteries and churches that eventually popped up across the Irish country to promote Christianity.

On March 17 in the 5th century Saint Patrick died, which is now the day we celebrate St. Paddy’s day on! So, now you know why we celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. You’re ready for next year!!

Cheers,
Claudia

INTERNeX PuB NiGHT 2010-02-22

So i just want to thank all of those who managed to make it out to this Monday’s INTERNeX PuB NiGHT. It was a bitter sweet moment because it was actually Shinya’s last PuB NiGHT since he is leaving Canada in the next few days. We all wanted to make his last PuB NiGHT as memorable as possible so what better way then to buy the poor little boy a shot of Tequila! hahaha Now before you jump on me for doing such a cruel thing let me remind you that he actually specifically asked for a shot of Patron Gold Tequila when i just generally offered to buy him a drink. So really i did nothing wrong…right? lol Now for those of you who don’t know, Shinya doesn’t/can’t really drink a lot because he has an extremely low tolerance…one beer will do it for the guy!

You can already start to see a little bit of the “glow” setting in. Anyways that one shot was enough for Shinya but it did help him to loosen up a bit and we managed to gain a glimpse into his “interesting” dancing abilities. Even though he had to get up at 4:30am the next morning Shinya still came out and partied hard…well as hard as he was able to… but we appreciated it nonetheless!

We are all going to miss you Shinya and we hope that you will come back and visit us one more time!
