Apparently when it rains it pours...third post today!
I haven't been feeling too well lately. I blame Isabelle since she was sick and then I got sick. So there. Luckily this is a three day weekend (Tomb Sweeping Festival). Since I went to Hangzhou two weeks ago and Suzhou last week, I am thoroughly enjoying taking it easy this weekend and staying within a three block radius of my apartment. Oh wait...that's not true. I went to Lucy's apartment with Isabelle on Friday night. She made dinner and we spoke only Chinese for about 2 hours.
I have a stack of homework I need to read through that is taller than my 250 GB external hard drive, and I need to plan my lessons for next week. Ah well. At least the week after next is midterms so I'll probably just be showing movies in my class or watching my students study. Wheee.
I got a call yesterday from D'Arcy's friend Erica saying she had missed her flight back to Japan and had no where to stay. So I got a surprise visitor last night. I'm glad I was able to help her out and since her flight was supposed to leave around 5:30 (aka NOW) and I haven't gotten another panicked phone call...I'm guessing she made it.
OH! I almost forgot to mention this. I got an Easter package from my parents. THANK YOU! I was so excited to have a package that I opened 'er right up and forgot to take a video or pictures or anything. I got a Drew calendar (which I hung up at my desk), mayo (on the DAY I ran out...great timing Mom!), a BUNCH of yummy candy (including some maple sugar candy which totally and completely melted into one blob it's way to Chinaland), an egg dying kit (which I have plans to use with Lucy and Isabelle), and some more window decorations! See below:
I (think I) use too many (way too many) parenthesis (like woah, how can you even understand what I'm writing?)(.)
I guess that's all my recent news...so have some more pictures!
Zeno got me these as a present cuz she knows how much I love those stone lions they have outside of a lot of Chinese places. I currently have them guarding my TV.
And I found these in Carrefour. I already tried the Tandoori chicken one, which was very tasty, and the Thai Basil and Garlic Italiano, which was good but not as good as I had hoped. I don't even know what to expect from the Milky Shoyu Butter flavor...I just got it because the other two looked interesting and it was the only one left on the shelf. I went back a couple days later to see if they had any of the Tandoori chicken left and I couldn't find ANY of the Fusion flavors...
Anyway, that's all from me for now. I think I might go get some sushi for dinner.
