Through the Looking Glass

As I've mentioned before, I have a friend coming here to live, and another friend coming for a visit, and I'm really looking forward to both of these things because there's nothing quite as exciting as showing some place you love to someone else.

Plus, it'll be nice to "re-see" Edinburgh with fresh eyes. It's not {quite} that I've gotten blase about it, but seeing someone get excited about all the old buildings on my bus route might get me to stop reading the Metro every morning and enjoy them again.

Don't get me wrong - I adore the Castle and I love those glimpses I keep getting of the Firth of Forth, and the North Sea, from various places in the city - but eventually you get too used to seeing buildings that are older than your country, and they don't have that interest to them anymore.

So, yeah. Looking forward to seeing Kristi and Joe, and showing them Edinburgh in all her glory.

In unrelated news, it took me until today to figure out that when people on the tour were referring to Winter and their Winter Schedule, they were meaning that it's still February, and thus is Winter, and not that it is cold, because it isn't. This really did confuse me - isn't it Spring?

{I've been dreaming lately about Asia. A couple of nights ago I had a dream where I was teaching in a Japanese school. It was so vivid I had troubles waking up. Last night I had a dream where I was back in China, teaching in Jiangyan, but my old boss from the last hotel I worked in in Edmonton, Bing, was teaching Phys Ed and there was a new headmaster. It was also hard to wake up from. I think I have something on my mind.}
