I believe these questions were meant to be St Patrick's Day themed.
- Have you ever made corned beef and cabbage?
One of my grandmothers was half Irish so I have Irish heritage, although I don't believe you would ever guess that by looking at me. I helped that grandmother make corned beef and cabbage on a weekly basis, decades ago, but I don’t think I ever chose to cook it as an adult. I didn’t mind it as a child. However, it does not go with our generally light-on-the-meat menu rota for home cooking these days.
- Will you be tipping back a decent pint of Guinness this weekend?
Since I’m doing this late: as of last weekend, no. I had gin, wine and ale (not at the same time). I also don’t plan to have Guinness this coming weekend. I do like stout, but I find it very heavy to drink so I don't often opt for it.
- Do you own an Irish wool sweater?
- Have you ever ‘met’ the Tart with a cart (i.e. have you been to Dublin)?
I have been to Dublin several times in my life, most recently on a mini-break with Humuhumu and seismic. Entries on Dublin running back to 2005 can be viewed here for DW, here for LJ.
- Do you know what tractors, submarines and ejector seat all have in common?
Well, I assumed something Irish, perhaps inventors of, or first tested by, but Wikipedia claims the ejector seat was first properly tested by a Romanian so either something has gone wrong here factually or there is a joke I'm not getting (always possible).
