Eastern Bloc Party

By Wyatt Earp | August 13, 2005

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.

    It’s kinda cool, Wyatt. Not annoying at all.

    I’ll email you my address to send the Desert Eagle to, BTW! :)

    Oh, yeah, about the Desert Eagle . . .

    My wife thought it was funny for the dates. Slovakian is Polish but with a funky accent. We used to drive to slovakia to get our liquor when we lived in Poland. It was actually cheaper there then in Poland
