Happy Birthday Zia
Las Pinas, Philippines
Zia is turning 4. She was born 2.5 weeks after we left for Canada and it took me 10 months to see her personally. It took 2 years for my wife. Now short of a few days before she turns 4, you wouldn't know you were talking to someone her age as she is mature for someone 10 years older.
She will become a big sister in a few more weeks, and we're sure she will be a responsible "Ate" to Ziggy.
Memento hits 165,000 Pageviews
Earlier today, Memento hit 165,000 pageviews.
Just how many is 165,000?
- In the dictionary, there are definitions to 165,000 words, the latest ones include, "fan boy" and "air quotes". As early as now, there are 100 more being studied for 2009, including "ciabatta," which is an Italian bread that is showing up on a lot of American menus and "carbon footprint". Looking forward to when "hockey mom" will be in the dictionary.
- Sweden now has 165,000 alcoholic males. With 9 million people, this is still low for a country who has one of the highest incidence of suicide despite inventing low cost but beautiful furniture and Absolut Vodka. :)
- Surprisingly, despite its popularity, there are just 165,000 Twitter users.
And I will not be surprised that when Zia hits reading age, Memento will still be here, and there will be another 165,000 pages that have been added and read. :)
I just hope she can read this post and know that we both love her very very much and miss spending time with her.
