And now for a small recap of this past weekend:
  • Friday - I had a surprise visit by My boyfriend, [ profile] nitropup . Thanks to [ profile] jet_der_hund  for bringing him there from the airport. While playing a rec ice hockey game, I suddenly noticed him sitting in the stands. ^_^ Later, we celebrated a pre-birthday with Metro and crew at Sidetracks by consuming purple drink and later pizza at The Pie Hole)
  • Saturday - Uber-40+ furry smoker/bbq session to celebrate Metro's real birthday. There was tons of meat including a deep fried turkey. It was great to see everyone there including [ profile] nbowa  from Iowa.
  • Sunday - After dropping Nitropup at the airport, I had another hockey game with a quiet evening.
This weekend? IML!

As for the thought of the week?

I heard an interesting tidbit from "This American Life" last Saturday regarding Haiti said by a local eye doctor there:
"God gives you 205 years to do something with Haiti. And if you fail, he passes it to someone else."

  • The Spanish: 1492 (Columbus discovers Hispanola) to 1697 (West Hispanola given to France by Treaty of Ryswick) = 205 years
  • The French: 1698 (French establish Saint-Dominque) to 1803 (Haitians defeat French forces) = 205 years
  • The Haitians: 1804 (New independent Haiti) to 2009 (Political unrest) = 205 years
  • Unknown: 2010 (Haitian earthquake) to .... (what's next?)
