Why Hello Curly, Larry and Moe...

So yesterday, a few friends and I were hanging out in my room and eating bread with butter and drinking hot chocolate, and knitting (of course I was knitting). Well my friend and I were sitting on my roommates bed and I commented something along the lines of, "Be careful I don't think Vera would appreciate us eating on her bed." Not a minute later one of the chopsticks we were using to spread the butter falls off of our plate and we get a little on her blanket. So we look at it and go "Oh, crap what now?" then the other chopstick with MORE butter falls and gets on her blanket. "Oh double crap."

We set down our hot chocolate and look at the blanket pondering what should happen when... we knock over a cup of hot chocolate onto the floor, and on Vera's rug. So then we start scrambling getting the yarn off her bed so we can get a move on and clean this all before she comes home, and in the scramble we knock of the other cup of hot chocolate (I think we're up to 4x crap now).

What ends up happening is we pull the extra blanket off of my bed (which looks like hers because she uses the ones provided by the school, I was using it as padding against my lack of a mattress) and throwing the rug and everything into the washer. Then we see that my school issued blanket is a slightly different color than her school issued blanket (quintuple crap!) we put it on anyways and hoped she wouldn't notice.

The next day I tell Vera that we spilled hot chocolate on the floor yesterday and I'm sorry but I got it on her rug, Vera goes, "It got on my blanket too didn't it? this one is new."

... I told her yes.

In other news this weekend I went shopping on the Silk Market, a place famed for their silk scarves and Caitlin and I wandered into the touristy section (well the whole thing is touristy, but the REALLY touristy section). And there was this white guy kind of flirt bargaining with a fuwuyran (shop worker) and then another one kind of playfully swatted at him and the guy kind of jumped back and went "Bie Qi Fu Lao Wai!" which roughly translates to : Don't bully the foreigner! except Lao Wai is a semi insulting term for forgiener so it made me giggle.

I also love eggplant, a lot.

I will try to take more pictures soon. I know I've been lazy/nothing interesting has been happening.
