So first how many words can you spell with the word "watermelon". Other than water and melon you can spell up to 100 words. That was our task today in teams to figure out how many we could get. Matthew, Christian and I got 50 words in 10 minutes so we were pretty proud. Today was all about listening and writing English and we did some great exercises on listening. Got some ideas Ursula and Sarah you might find interesting.
We finished early today at 2:00PM as we were all caught up, it was Friday, T.I.T. and our instructor was sick so we went home. That means for me heading to downtown on a mission to find some films for my long journey by train to Bangkok. So I got 4 great films on CD for just 6 dollars. Seven Pounds, Changeling, Revolutionary Road and W. I checked them out, no hands sticking up in the middle of the film or jumping videos. They have no copyright laws here so anything pretty much goes. I think they put the film out before Hollywood does... On my way home, I had to cross the street and play my usual traffic dodgeball and well this time I lost. A motorbike ran over my toe...UGH it is fine but of course I had to sooth my pain and sorrow of losing at traffic dodgeball so I went and had a foot massage...Just two big US dollars for an hour. Toe is sore...but I will survive it was a small bike and Thai's aren't very big so not much weight...He gave me a lift part of my way and he felt really bad.
Oh yea, I totally forgot, haircut today at the local shop down the street from me...The woman was all excited, here I am frang with silver hair so she she said in her best English...(not that great) that she had never touched silver hair before...I suggested she might want to open up a shop in Florida...So she saved a piece of my hair for what reason I don't know but I suspect it is at her home being examined by her family all who I know have jet black hair.
On my way to downtown..we are not talking midtown manhattan here..no skyscrapers etc...well the Sofitel hotel is kind of tall..anyway I stopped by my sewing lady to pick up my shirt that I had altered. She said she gave me her best price..45 cents for altering two sleeves and fixing a small tear.
Oh Andy I passed by a Chinese restaurant tonight and they did not have General Tso Chicken...
