Eastern Bloc Party
I gotta give a shout out to Pandy for the idea (which, for her, was brought about by boredom), but I couldn't resist the (temporary) change. You'll notice that the months and days of the week are now in my grandparents' native tongue, Slovak.
I am a mutt in the truest sense of the word. My father's side is Irish and English (which is terrific during the IRA disputes), and my mother's side is Austrian, Hungarian, and Czechoslovakian. As a rabid hockey fan, the Czech connection was awesome, since so many pros come from the area. Unfortunately for me, my Uncle Ray informed me that there are bitter differences between the Czechs and the Slovaks - hence the spilt into two separate countries. I was outfitting myself in Czech hockey gear, and my Uncle Joe was telling me that my grandfather was "rolling around in his grave." Thus ended that experiment.
Any whoo, I decided to change the language (for the dates, anyway) just for the sake of change. If it gets really irritating, I'll change back. Thanks in advance for your patience.
