A bit of a funny story to share, Elizabeth...
I was at my dentist's office yesterday having some fillings, as he was telling a story to his wide-eyed new assistant.
Now, I love listening to his stories while I'm in the chair, he's quite funny, but he's also really knowledgeable, and comes up with the most interesting and obscure factoids. And I appreciate having something to listen to while my mouth is otherwise engaged ( read: unable to do the talking, for once! ).
Anyway, he starts talking about Ireland, and at this point I'm sort of half listening, but I do hear him say, "Did you know Ireland was so named because the people have the reputation for getting their 'ire" up?"
Well, I hear this and just about choke, because I can't reply, but I'm thinking, "What a crock!!!" And I think it's very weird because he's so whip smart, where did he come up with this nonsense?
So he goes on and on, and his assistant is saying things like, "Really? I had no idea?"
And finally, I groaned - quite loudly...at which point, he started laughing, and said, "I wondered when you were going to react!"
He told the story especially because I have Irish roots, and he saw an opportunity pull one over on both his assistant and me.
It was pretty funny.
Just had to share! ;-)

@1blond That is hilarious!! What a fun dentist! Bet you giggled all the way through the rest of your session!

@1blond Éire is the traditional Gaelic name for Ireland; Ériu was one of three sister goddesses who were the patrons of pre-Christian Ireland.
Ireland is not a common first name in Ireland; far more popular is Erin, which is derived from the Gaelic "Éirinn," the dative form of Éire. So now you know!!!!

Well, interestingly, I knew the name came from the word Eire.....and told him so. And we actually named Kelsey for "Erin" - which is her middle name...but I didn't know that in modern day, Ireland is still called
by its people, "Eirinn!" How cool is that? I thought it was just an ancient name.

One day we'll get there! ;-)

Tigger looks kind of shell-shocked by the flash! I just read your blog like every night and I love the hymn of today. Thank you!
October 20th, 2010  
This is a seriously great composition. Love the light on the wall and the reflections on the larger grater. Also like Tigger himself to give perspective.

@mirmax Thank you.... always interesting to find out who is reading the blog! I know one of the authors of that hymn - he's a most dynamic character and great musician.
