A day in the life

  • Ug, never walking more than 5 minutes in my locally bought dress shoes again. Oh the blisters!
  • Dani is the largest be-lazy enabler. “Don't go to work, I'm making bunna. Right outside your door. Between you and the steps.”
  • Need to actually do it when I think something needs to be done, from calling my counterpart to have shai to buying peanuts. And of course washing dishes/clothes.
  • Ox loose on the soccer field! Enjoy it buddy, you have four days to live before Easter feasting.
  • After the awesomeness of the two British shows I follow: Doctor Who and Sherlock, I expected my exposure to the third to also be good. Sadly, Luther doesn't compare.
  • I've just been used. Dani: Jenny, you are a ferengi so they will give you sugar before me. Go buy for me. Sadly, it's true. How sugar sales are monitored here sorta makes me feel like I'm living in WWII times.
  • O.O Internet cafe in town! But still no CDMA. Dang.
  • RAWR! I have having a cold here.
  • Oh, just got way over my head. Wanted to do my summer camp in August, my counterpart said the best time would be in June. Yay 8 weeks to plan!
  • Watching a sappy movie when you have a cold is a bad idea – your nose runs twice as much.
  • Ug, still sore three days after the 7km.
  • Holy Cow, directing/planning/organizing camps is super stressful.
  • Prideful moment of the day: Letting the health center know I want a doctor to do a family planning session at a camp for 20 12 grade girls. In Amharic! Boo-yah!
  • I don't mind washing my clothes in a bucket. Washing my sheets however....
  • I love the fact that I can customize the names when playing Hearts. And somehow, the winner is still either Papou or Dad.
  • Was out of the house for 7 hours straight today and in that time really only mailed a couple of packages, had lunch, and picked up t-shirts. Oh, the time wasted waiting for buses to arrive/fill up and leave.
  • Really wanted a mocha today, or whatever the coffee/milk/chocolate combo is called, but both milk bets were dry. Sigh.
  • Out of the normal things I have been called: White China, American-san, Danish. I wish 'sexy lady' could be on that list, but alas it's not.

Whenever I read your posts, I'm in awe at how easily you seem to be fitting in to a culture that's so different. That might not be the case, but that's how your posts appear!

PS. I reviewed Flicker on Amazon for you :-)
