It's leap day!
It comes around every four years. Like the time around a new year, this is an opportunity for a personal evaluation, and look toward your future goals.
Last leap day was in 2004; at that time I was busily working at the CDC in Atlanta and commuting an hour each way from my home in the suburbs. While exciting, it was quite a whirlwind of work, work, work! I have no clue what I was doing on the day itself. But that year was a good one:
- I visited South Africa's western region.
- Of course every leap year here in the US means a presidential election: I remember standing in line at the election polls in the suburb where I lived starting at 5am so that I would be able to vote in a reasonable amount of time. There were 30 or more other people in line at that ungodly hour!
- I was not cooking that much at home--the amount of time I spent at home was limited, and usually characterized by: exhaustion, sleeping, cleaning or getting ready for work.
- I believe it was 2004 when the restaurant, Jim & Nick's, opened in my GA town. J&N's is a bbq place and a delicious one at that! My favorite meal was the 'Pig in a Potato Patch.' It's the most enormous baked potato you've ever seen, topped with butter, sour cream, cheese, bacon, shredded bbq pork and sauce, of course. Here is a photo:
What a delicious monstrocity!
What were you doing last leap day?
