A Geek's Irish Blessing

Happy St. Patrick's Day!  My family hails from Ireland so despite having been born and raised in the US this is probably our most important holiday of the year.  We all wear green, eat green food, wear silly green beads around our necks and drink copious amounts of alcohol all in the name of St. Patrick.  Thank the maker for giving us a Saint that not only drove the snakes from Ireland, but gave us all a chance for a darn good party every March 17th.  There are lots of toasts and blessings for today, but my favorite was on a little plaque in my Nana's kitchen.  It read...

May the road rise to meet you.
May the sun be always at your back.
May the Lord hold you in the hollow of His hand.
And may you be in heaven a half hour before the devil knows you're dead

Pretty standard Irish Blessing fare, but I thought this could use a little tweaking for the Geeky masses.

A Geek's Irish Blessing

May you die rolls be high
May your comics never crease or fade
May you be first in line for new releases
And may you always find the droids you are looking for...

Happy St. Patrick's Day!!!
