[:en]Hello from the game shop!! 🙂
Since the library closes on Thursdays and we need the internet to work on, the game shop is the best choice we have. So here we are.

Talking about the library, yesterday afternoon, after a few hours in the library, George found that it was way too cold and said that we should find somewhere warmer to work. So we left the library and went just right across the street to Manitowoc Coffee (the one I had mentioned before but mistaken its name for Pretoria or something like that).
There we were working on the website; there’re some things that need to be fixed. And since the website tasks include Pat’s work, we set an appointment around 7:30 a.m. this morning so that it would be 7:30 p.m. in Thailand. This way it wouldn’t be such a bad time for all of us.

Here’s one cute thing about the coffee shop. While we were working (in a serious mode, of course), a girl walked up to our table and started talking about her friends, bla bla bla, I didn’t quite catch what she said; that’s not the point anyway. The point is she is sooooooooo cute. And since she came to talk to us strangers, her mom was translating what she was saying and started to talk with George about baby. They traded their experiences on taking care of kids, which is nice, I mean at least I got to learn something even though I’m not expecting a baby any time soon, lol.

Anyway, after a couple of hours in Manitowoc Coffee, George was kind of starving, so we left the shop and find something to eat. He asked me what I wanted for dinner, as usual, and got the same ‘I don’t know/ anything’ from me as always. So he gave me the choice of Thai&Lao Market or the new barbecue thing shop we once took the kids to eat. I chose the barbecue, unfortunately, it closed. So we ended up eating shrimp fried rice, egg rolls, and chicken for George at the Thai&Lao Market. The lady at the market told us that many of our students brought their host families to the market, and bought some ingredients to cook some Thai food at home. That sounded great, I mean they would have to spend time cooking together and the host families would get a chance to try new recipe. Yummy 😛

Then George decided to spend his evening in the game shop, so he asked me if I wanted to go there or else he would take me to the house and came back. Well, I would love to go back to the house but the game shop is right at the corner from where we were, if he took me to the house, then he had to drive all this way back and forth. When I made this remark, George said I was being “Thai” for not wanting to bother anyone, (we call that “Greng-Jai” in Thai), and he added that Americans would never offer something they aren’t willing to do. A lesson learnt here, so I got back to the house 😀

I didn’t do much in the evening. I wanted to go to bed as early as I could because I had to get up this morning. My plan was to do the laundry, since I’d only got jeans left and I don’t think my ankle would allow me to wear them. So I took my laundry down to the basement with my computer as I planned to wait down there (that way I wouldn’t have to climb up and down stairs much). The washing machine was fine, but the dryer took DECADES, and it got colder and colder after the sun went down. Another thing is that at first I couldn’t find the switch to the light in the machines’ area. I took a couple of tour around the basement just to find out that it was right over the machines, poor me 😛 Oh, and had I mentioned yet?, the basement is kind of scary, though. I haunted myself with those basement scenes I’d seen in horror movies, haha. But I was chatting with Kay on Facebook and playing game online with my friends, so it wasn’t as scary as it might be.

Well, it’s today’s blog and I still haven’t mentioned anything about today yet, so I’ll just start now. This morning I had to got up early for a meeting with Pat and George on the website tasks. It was kind of hard to get myself out of the warm and comfy bed, lol. Then I washed myself up, grabbed my stuff, and knocked on George’s door just to check if he’s up. Then I went down to talked online with Pat about work, at first, and we moved on to food and random experiences she had to share 🙂

After A WHILE, George came down and we started to work on stuff that need to be done. It took the whole morning, and there’re still a lot more to do, so we have to meet again tomorrow morning. Then we had a quick lunch, and went to visit Green at her house. She’s at home today, so I had a chit-chat with her. Green told me she was making banana bread with her host mom, and the smell just followed. I bet it’s yummy!

We didn’t stay long because we had an appointment with a guidance counselor at Lincoln High School at 1 p.m. and we were getting late. So we headed to Lincoln and had a talk with the guy. His room is filled with Spongebob Squarepants. He sure loves it!!

I dared not take a picture of his office, but I got this same spot from yesterday shot. It’s sooooooo windy today!!

And now, here we are. Stockpile.
