St Patrick's Day at the White House

Posted by Kelly Fincham at 3/17/2009 9:44 PM EDT

Really, when you think of it, it's got to be someone's idea of hell. Throwing your house open to 400+ Irish people and giving them unlimited quantities of free drink. Especially when the house in question is the White House. But that's the funny thing about being Irish in America. We don't drink at functions.

And yes, it's true. The Obamas look as good in real life as they do on the TV. The rest of us tried to stand taller (there was a group intake of breath) and we vowed to get fit - soon - some day. Just as soon as I've stopped eating the scallops wrapped in bacon.

And, just as soon as I've figured out how to take the video off the flipcam (thanks Elizabeth!) I hope to upload some live footage.
Slainte!
