What a perfect time to discuss hot singers.
The girl in the picture with Joe, EJ, and me is one of the singers from First Circle. I don't know her name, but she's hot. The other First Circle singer is hot, too.
Remember April and Gina from Brown Republic Band? They were hot. Anchel from Resound was hot and the scary girl from ART was hot, but she was scary.
Which leads to a discussion of the two new girls from Streetbeat:
So who's hotter? Short skirt or short shorts?
Alright, enough about hot girls. On to more important things.
I strung together a little video of this month's CNMI vs Guam game:
Alright, how about some tree hugger stuff?
Yesterday morning I helped coordinate the first tree planting of the 2007 Rainy Season. Using coconuts gathered from my late father's house in Fina Sisu and volunteers from the District Boy Scout Camp going on this week, we planted 115 trees.
One of the most rewarding things about my life on Saipan is working with kids who want to learn. The boy scouts were totally attentive as I spoke to them about the importance of planting trees, ecology, and such.
It was a great event. I even got to participate in the flag raising ceremony:
Later in the day MINA hosted an An Inconvenient Truth power point presentation at Aqua Resort.
Aqua Resort has been a huge supporter of MINA and Beautify CNMI. They have held three fundraiser events for us, donate 10% of every meal on Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays to MINA to support Beautify CNMI projects, and regularly participate in our volunteer activities. MINA recognized their support last night.
Thanks, Aqua Resort!
The presentation was given by former CNMI resident Bob Schwalbach. Bob is part of the 1000 strong Albert Gore's Army (sounds kind of like Dumbledore's Army, huh?) giving Global Warming talks across the US.
The slide show was not identical to the slide show given by Al Gore in An Inconvenient Truth. I would say that about 80% of the slides were the same. Some of the slides were newer, some as new as this week, some of the slides were catered to local issues facing the CNMI, and some slides took what Gore talked about and went into the topic in greater detail. My guess is that they were orignally part of Gore's presentation, but were edited out of the movie for one reason or another.
It was a fantastic presentation.
After the talk, the MINA board shared some of our expertise with Bob:
Then we posed for a group picture with Bob:
After the presentation some of us stayed at Aqua Resort for dinner. Last night was Seafood Night, which is my favorite night at my favorite buffet. Yum.
After dinner, EJ and I went to Club V.
I might as well finish this post off the way it started:
