"Aba blan pepe!"



What does it mean? Read the blog posting below. Thanks, Diane for the excellent article regarding Haiti after the quake. The part about sending your worse items to the Haitians (or anyone for that matter who needs help) really struck home. Having worked there a few times in the past I was constantly appalled by what people "donated." Here's a helpful hint:
If it's crap to you, it's crap to them. Keep your crap.

Dealt with the same thing in Nola... Seriously, how much rice pudding can one disaster relief kitchen possibly use? Winter parkas for Louisiana summer? And don't even get me started on the rancid guacamole chips from a certain celebrity...

I liked the article... everyone should read it!

Laughing over here, too at the "crap" quote. It's genius, really. I think you may have a future in greeting card prose.
