Got the coolest collection of Irish/Celtic music for like $3 per in the grocery store this week. I'm loving listening to the stuff. For whatever reason almost any Irish music, even those mediocre for their genre are things that I love. They resonate well in my head.

There is some argument that there is Irish in my blood thanks to the tell tale sign of red hair, but none of my living relatives remember anyone with red hair. The closest they've been able to come as far as a guess on one side is a great great grandfather, or something like that, who was called "red" all his life. But no one is sure why. My grandmother on the other side had sort of strawberry blond hair, so she's a possibility on that side. But it's double recessive, so there is still some mystery about my mother's side of the family, and certainly there isn't much if anything in the way of Irish culture hold overs in the family. None of them have ever, as far as I know, listened to much in the way of Celtic music. Maybe just a quirk. But bagpipes are a wonderful sound when I hate most high pitched instruments passionately.

Maybe I'm just a freak.
