it's lateee so this will be the quick version. below is a picture of the dice we use for almost every game at school. there are 2 in each classroom.
i was craving creme brulet this morning and then when i went to the coffee shop this afternoon, what was the first thing i saw on the menu? creme brulet. and i never even look at the dessert section. it was magic.
the creme brulet itself wasn't magical. the custard was really gelatin-y and there was no crusty sugar on the top, just burnt sugary tasting liquid.
i was laughing at myself today because we were talking about going to the hot springs and danielle, who went last weekend, tried to warn me that everyone would be staring and taking pictures of me. at the time, i was thinking "whatever, i've gotten used to getting lots of attention here. that won't be a problem."
but then tonight i was subbing a class downtown so i brought my camera so i could get some pictures of taoyuan downtown, and when i took my camera out i got reaaally self conscious. i felt like i was the only foreigner for miles and everyone was looking at me because my camera is really conspicuous, so i chickened out and didn't take many pictures.
it was pretty funny tonight when all of us had gotten home from teaching and people were cooking dinner, jerry started playing a red book drinking game. you had to recite a lesson line by line and drink when you screwed up. it was pretty entertaining.
hippie josh had brought his new taiwanese girlfriend over and we were laughing because we've never done that before but it seemed like such an english teachery thing to do.
around midnight, i went bowling with steve, josh and noe. steve and i made a bet that if i beat him, he would go to the hotsprings with us tomorrow. i was ahead of him up until the 8th frame and he beat me even thoughhh i got a spare in the 9th frame and then 2 strikes in the 10th frame for a total of 131. i think he got 147.
no one will go to ali baba's with me anymore because it's a little expensive, so i went to get food to go after class and i took a picture while i was sitting there. they brought me a lassi while i was waiting. when i went up to the register to get my food, the indian guy who i've seen a few times asked if i was russian.
