Ten Lessons from the Weekend

  1. Ocean water has enough sand floating in it to fill up your pockets even if you never touch the ground.
  2. A digital camera will still work with sand in it, but only for so long.
  3. "Limited warranty" means they don't replace the camera for having sand in it. Dammit.
  4. They may be short, but jockeys can play some damn good volleyball.
  5. Johan doesn't know how to lob a baseball when we don't all have mitts (reference my aching right hand).
  6. Ladies in cowboy hats are generally not to be trusted.
  7. Marmite, the British version of vegemite, is disgusting.
  8. Durian, a fruit from Malaysia that's considered a delicacy, is also disgusting.
  9. The Island has taken product placement to a new low.
  10. Vietnamese food is awesome.

If you'd like me to elaborate on any of these, drop me a line or a comment.
