Lost Comments

So we lost the comments from last week till Thursday – I was transferring files from one server to the other and we lost it all.

I am very very very upset by this because I am somewhat anal.

Thus we can make it up in here. I am glad I have you guys.

    So I was looking forward to going to a celebration (enkutatash, raising flag, kids & eskesta etc etc) and granted it’s not the sunniest day of the year, I walk overthere and there’s not one sign of any celebration or habesha folk.. not even a crappy hand written sign saying something like “sorry, no enkutatash this year, poopy weather..”
    I’m pouting cause in over 10 years I’ve been here, I had never attended one of these and I was sooo desperately looking forward to escaping for a few :(

    life is good

    Yesterday was the Ethio new year celebration here in Toronto. It rained all day without ceasing. But I was amazed ma ppl were there all day. I was there for six hours in a big park and soaked wet to my socks and underewear and yet having fun…

    Eskista, bandira, kitfo, soccer etc…were in full swing as if it was not raining….The last time I had fun in the rain was playing soceer in my teenage yrs….It was just too good…

    Bernos as an icebreaker:
    I had my Addis Ababa Classic the other day when a lady I met with her husband and elderly parents suddenly got all excited and said ” wow! when did u get that? it was sold out, did they bring it back?” I know many ppl know about it, but was still a surprise to me that she knew about Bernos. Well, we talked a lil about the other Bernos T-shirts too…and she wished me “inkutatash…melkam addis Aamet” in her qoltafa American accent….eweeee. :) ….that’s when I saw Amahric Language book on her table. I learned they are trying to adopt a kid from Ethiopia…and their excitement was beTam des yemil. I asked if she read the article on adopting from Ethiopia on Bernos….geen, she didn’t. BTW, how many of you know how “inkutatash” started?

    Mother in law, rearranged, spells ‘woman Hitler’ and from that comment I can only suggest that if you’re ever unfortunate enough to stay at her house, you avoid the shower.
