April Fools! :)

Sorry to disappoint, but the previous post was an April fools prank. I know it wasn’t particularly wild or crazy, but all my other ideas would have had my parents phoning the Chinese embassy to beg for my pardoning and such, so I had to keep it relatively tame.

Some of you probably guessed, as my typing actually improves when I’m drunk. Would be cool to hang out with the mayor though…

My students actually got me with an April fools today too. I walked into the classroom and they all started singing “We wish you a Merry Christmas.” I started to quiz them as to what “Merry Christmas” meant, and then smarmily said “Yes, and what day is it today?” to which they replied “April Fools!” Out-smarted by 6 year olds. 🙁 (hey, the conversation was all in Chinese, singing in English.)

Happy April Fools! 🙂

OMG I am so drunk but I ahd to write this b,log to t ell you abhout my night. So i was eathuing dinner in the restuant when I see a huge entiourage of guys coming through and the the guy in the middle of the pack sees me and comes over tpo me and I tihnk “oh ho, here we go again.” but he starts talking s and he is the MAYER OF THE FRIGGIN CITY!

New Blog!

Welcome! Yes, this is my new home on the interwebs. Sweet and Sour Wimp was good, but it’s host, Blogger, was blocked in China which meant many people couldn’t read it, and the blocking also made it difficult for me to write it. So, this is the new shizzle. Sorry, no catchy name this time […]
