新年快乐

In your minds I see confusion. I see a burning question, deeply seeded in your hearts. You are wondering what the headline means, right? Oh yes, I can read your thoughts! Call me Galadrius or something... Knowing my insolent ex-roommate, Lucas, he has probably already looked up what the headline means - because he's an unrelenting smartass - but for all of you who want to keep the suspense high or those who simply cannot work a computer and wouldn't know how to look up what the headline means if I explained it to them a thousand times (Hi, Dad!), I am going to reveal the meaning in the very last part of this article. 

 

First, however, let's focus on the fun stuff in life: Fridges! Fridges are great, aren't they? They keep food cool. They keep beverages cool... That's what fridges do... Unless they don't work properly. We are worried about Fridgey McFridgeface - that's what we casually call our fridge - because it just overcools everything. If you leave hot soup in there for a minute or two it comes out a frozen block. That's why we have to store all of our food on the front porch with the squirrels... Freedom!

Look at that cheeky, little bastard in the middle, just waiting to nibble on my sausage... Anyway, Let's move on to the good stuff:

 

1) In my anthro discussion class we had a knowledge competition and under my professional lead my team won: Yay!
2) I just finished my first of only three papers this term (only three, can you believe it?) and I am ready for my two upcoming exams on Monday.
3) I found a one-dollar-bill under my pile of  dirty laundry... here he is:

Yep... Worst. Pun. Ever. Moving on, tomorrow's groundhog day, so expect a funny post!

 

Now, let's get to the solving of the Chinese puzzle we've all been waiting for. The characters up there mean "New Year" 

新年 (xin nian)  and "Happy" 快乐 (kuai le). 

It was Chinese New Year on the 28 January, so we had a little get together at Gregory Co-Op House, studied Chinese and had some traditional Hot Pot (Hot Pot is basically a pot which is divided in two by an aluminum wall and you boil vegetables, meat and dumplings in medium hot broth on one side of the wall and super hot broth on the other side of the wall). It was prepared by one of our Chinese friends and super delish! After the Hot Pot we watched Mulan. You know... the Disney movie I hadn't seen before - god knows why - and which is absolutely fantastic! Plus my favourite scene from one of my favourite movies (The Lord of the Rings - Return of the King) was stolen from, and that is FROM not BY, Mulan. I am disappointed in you, Peter!
