Useless Guam Anecdote #1

So blogging is the new 'thing' with the 'me' generation. Deal.

I got my Bank of Guam checks in the mail yesterday. When I opened them up, I noticed that the Bank of Guam logo was printed on the checks. You're probably thinking, "yeah, so what?"

Well, I've spent the last 27 years telling people that I was born on Guam with nothing more to show for it than a Chamorro last name and some brown hair.

Now I have a Bank of Guam checkbook.

Pretty soon I'll start picking up some Chamorro.

I think that is pretty cool.

From wikipedia:

-The Chamorros are the indigenous people of Guam and the Mariana Islands.
-The Chamoru/Chamorro language is an Austronesian language spoken on Guahan/Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands.
-Chamorro is a Spanish surname. The Chamorros have been an important political family in Nicaragua from the 1800s to the present, beginning with Fruto Chamorro. Violeta Chamorro was the president of Nicaragua from 1990 to 1996 and is probably the most famous member of the family, as well as being the first woman president on the continent of North America.

Angelo, you can start writing me checks if that will help you with your identity crisis.
