Thursday Thoughts

This morning I got 5 out of 5 on the 7:40  Challenge on the radio.  Yep, I'm pretty much a genius.  I think it helped that one of the questions asked "Which country's flag has a red maple leaf on it?".  If I had gotten that wrong, I never would have heard the end of it.

Remember how I kept dreaming about guavas?  Well, guess what?  The dreams are back.  I think I've dreamed of guavas three times in the last two weeks.  It is starting to get a bit ridiculous because I really want one and in each dream I don't get to eat one or they just don't taste right or are just different than I remember.  And then I wake up and I am sad.   And hungry.

Some days, I really miss Taiwan and my friends there.  Today would be one of those days.

And sometimes, I have HUGE cravings for Taiwanese food.  For example, on Tuesday I was dying for some 酸辣湯麵 (hot and sour soup with noodles).  I think I'll have to give in this weekend and make some chicken curry and some onion pancakes.  And a guava would be nice.

I just about freaked out because my shift keys weren't working.  I then realized I was still in Chinese mode.  Phew!

Thanksgiving is only one week away!!  Did you know that my mom was seriously considering canceling Thanksgiving this year?  When she told me the bad news, I about cried.  When she changed her mind, tears of joy came freely.

Have you seen the billboards along the freeway for the new Narnia movie?  All I can say is WOW!

Is it Friday yet?

Now that you mention it, I'm subconciously craving a guava too (first time had one was in cali).
I would cry too if your mom canceled Thanksgiving,and I can't wait for the Voyage of the Dawn Trader!!!!!!
