Saturday is one of my favorite days of the year.

I know the forecast is calling for drizzle and temperatures barely cracking 50, but the 30th Annual Dallas Observer St. Patrick's Day Parade will be hotter than ever.
*I'll be on the Observer float, shaking hands, kissing babies and throwing beads to the most energetic, enthusiastic and, um, deserving people along the route. (Special thanks to the dude who nailed me with a twinkie last year. Touche.)
