Jewel of a day
Photo from here.
Began the year with 5 very pregnant friends and today, the 4th little baby joins us! Baby Jewel was born a couple of hours ago and because it's now the year 2011, I found out through Facebook/Twitter when in the last it would have been a phonecall or a text.
Down with flu and feeling too awful to write anything intelligent so here are a couple of funny little anecdotes from the last couple of weeks.
Plus - oh! a new photo blog find! - Ricor is a Taiwanese photographer who takes only film photography and his shots (like the one above) are so so dreamy.
Perfect for a coughing girl on a rainy day.
V(after surveying my room): Wah you have a lot of obsolete technologies here ah!
Me: Huh, I do?
V: Yeah you actually have books and CDs and even a TV.
Me: Well... er *suppresses a giggle* yes I suppose I do have a lot of "obsolete technologies".
At Sunday School class:
Teacher: So we don't know for sure what the second coming will be like or the resurrection but we do have glimpses of that life to come. Like we know that Jesus said that there will be no marriage ....
Student: Yah so those who want to get married better get married in this life!
Rest of class collectively goes into fits of laughter.
At lunch one day the American Civil War gets fought all over again:
J (American dude): So you like tomatoes too?
G: No J, she likes to-MAH-toes. Not to-MAY-toes.....
J: yeah but you don't say po-TAH-toes do you?
