If you're wondering why I've been quiet lately, it's because I've been doing dick-all, really. I've spent the last three days patiently waiting for my t.v. to be fixed, and staring at the little watermark on my new DVD: Property of Warner Brothers Distribution, For Screening Purposes Only. I've truly experienced China now. My DVD of Harry Potter is incredibly illegal.
But, the saga of my t.v. It's never worked, and I finally got up the gumption to complain about it roughly three weeks ago. Lily assured me that someone would be around to fix it soon.
Three days went by.
I asked again. She assured me again someone would be around to fix it soon.
Eventually I was promised "Before Spring Festival."
Lily stopped by a few days ago to see if it had been fixed yet. I said no, and she assured me she'd get someone down to look at it, or she'd talk to the headmaster to get him to get someone to take a look at it.
I talked to Lily last night about it, and she stared at me. "I was told the workers were at your place yesterday!"
"They told me they were there yesterday morning!"
I didn't leave the house at all yesterday.
"I will talk to them!"
So, we'll see.
Frankly, I know I'm not missing much, but I really get a kick outta the melodramatic Chinese martial arts soap opera things. Sure, they're all in Mandarin and I don't understand a word of them. But I can make things up like the best of them!
