πŸ˜‚  Nice that #America gets the knife, fork, spoon 🍴 on our art at the Zhengzhou #airport (To be fair – so did #Italy and #France).  None of this #chopstick thing for us! No sir!

btw – chopsticks + glass rice noodles = IMPOSSIBLE! 🍜

So #Old

My students have been taking graduate pictures. πŸ“· πŸŽ“ They keep talking about how ‘old they are’ now – they’re like 19-24. 😱 Horrible I know. . .  I’m 27! They’re aging me folks! If they’re ‘old’ – I’m one step out of the grave πŸ‘»

A #Chinese #Dollhouse πŸ˜‚

14 Feb

​I’ve been sick today so I was playing on Taobao and found these adorable/hilarious dollhouse items. If You’ve ever lived in China you’d know how accurate these images are πŸ˜‚ Down to the cheap Chinese prngle alternatives (they look exactly like that!), cooke tins, and Green tea Oreo knockoffs πŸ˜„. I’ve been Coke Zero free for more than a month, but those bottles are so funny.  And the fanta soda.  πŸ˜‚

Do You Eat Mouth?

31 Dec
Student:Β Teacher do you eat mouth?
Me: 😢 no, can’t say that I do! What kind of mouth? — Pig, cow, goat? (thinking to myself, you eat pigs feet and chicken head, maybe you eat the mouth too? . . )
Student: No, teacher “mouth”
Me: -_- I feel like we’re not communicating here. . . Can you spell it?
Student:  M o u s e 🐭
Me: 😱😨 Nope, thought mouth sounded bad, but that might just be worse.

#ESL Humor (Tudou – the Potato Company)

3 Dec

Image result for Tudou

Hahaha!

One of my students was writing about the Youku / Tudou (2 Chinese media companies like Youtube) merger for our Negotiations class.

However, they put what they wrote intoΒ Bing!Translator to move it from Chinese to English. And Tudou translates as “Potato Net.” So every time they meant to say Tudou, it says “Potatoes.”

“Youku and the potatoes had a 100% merger . . . . potatoes have been issued”. . . . Β and the potatoes are buying up stock.

I’m just saying – these are some advanced potatoes and I want in on the action. Do smart, shareholder potatoes taste better when you eat then?
