Gift Shower

Still getting prezzies and apples from my students. I haven't officially opened anything yet, so at some point soon I shall have a Christmas Part Deux. Definitely though, I completely underestimated the size of tree to buy.

Riesling!

Okay, got my riesling. There was also some nice merlot from a winery in Walla Walla that was maybe around 5 times the price as the riesling. Maybe for the end of next semester...

A Conversation

19 year old student: I like your hair. I like your hair color.
Me: How kind of you to say that!
19 year old student: I want to make my hair that color when I'm 30.
Me: (thinking) ?!?
19 year old student: My mother likes only black hair, so I wait.
*Whew*

The Looks

Apparently to the locals, I look Greek or Spanish. As I walked off the train today, somebody asked me if I wanted a taxi in Greek after I ignored him when he asked me in English.

Traveling for coffee

Dear China: a Starbucks is to a foreigner what a baseball diamond is in the movie, "Field of Dreams." If you build it, they will come.

Respect! Not a Whole Lot

Okay... next on my culture list: Aretha Franklin. That's right. No "R-E-S-P-E-C-T" here. :'(

Musts

To add to my list of cultural musts for class, including Star Wars, Star Trek, Back to the Future, and Wizard of Oz... indeed, must not leave out Monty Python...

End of One, Start of Another...

Dear December; please be kinder than November. Thanks.

FB Butt Dialing?

Beginning to think that perhaps it *is* possible to butt dial someone on facebook. But, then... how would the person's butt know how to spell?

Here We Go

You know you have to be doing something right when all sorts of crap starts coming out of the woodwork.
