So, this weekend is going to be a busy one, from what I can put together.

Tomorrow, which is Friday, we'll have some foriegn students visiting from Nanjing. The kids are putting on a variety show for them. It's really quite cute, but definately a high school production. I got to watch it last night while they did a rehersal, and I helped with the English introductions and stuff. The kids are pretty good. If I hadn't been told they put together the dance numbers themselves in two days, I wouldn't have known that.

It doesn't hurt matters in my mind that they're dancing to songs I just love. I'm sorry, like half of the world, I love the song Butteryfly. Kris and I did it on DDR about a million times.

This is what I don't like about China. My DDR reflexes are going to be horrid by the time I get home. Kris is gonna kick my ass!

Anyway, Saturday and Sunday is a "sports meeting". Paul went to one, and warned me outright to take my camera. He said it was a lot of fun. But then, Paul likes watching sports, because he's crazy.

Ah well. I love the kids to peices, so it's okay.

The unfortunate side affect of all this is my second morning class was cancelled because "the students have activities in the playground". Which sucks, because I love teaching that class. Something I've discovered over here is I love teaching children. I didn't think I would, I figured I'd go crazy and kill them all, but I was wrong. I love being wrong some days.

On an unrelated note, I've discovered that the "stationary" option in Yahoo! is a blocked site in China. WTF?

On a slightly related note, I have a new Chinglish example:

On a poster in the grocery store, showing an employee helping someone find something:

"Your need! Our Greed!"

Ah, honesty in the advertising world.

I got an email from one of my students back home, Wang. {It's pronounced Wong, btw.} He's going to be in China for a month, visiting family. I hope we can get together while he's here. *smile*

I got asked That Question. You know, the one that drives people who are in a foreign country crazy:

"Do you know so-and-so? He's from Canada!"


And it was from Paul, no less.

No, I don't know that guy on t.v. who says he's from Canada. It's a big country. The second largest country in the world. I don't even know so-and-so from Edmonton, I assure you.
