Awana Orientation 2009, with songbooks! / Jane Austen
Had the usual bunch of information (plus new songbooks!), but it was good to have a refresher. Eric did a hilarious imitation of Jordan, haha! Ended up eating lunch at my own table because Chrystal had prior plans with someone, and we ran late... and we had no idea where Auntie Vivian was! Sweet and sour pork, shrimp crackers, very oily seaweed (Danny tried to un-grease it with a napkin!), peanuts, beef and broccoli, rice, BBQ pork, noodles, apple juice, iced tea, pop, and other things were certainly pretty good. We ended up running over an hour late, and I declined to take any leftovers home since I still have four burgers from yesterday in my fridge! Saw Derek, and a preview of his sister Erin's slideshow for Monday's reception.
Ada and I talked about the Awana Choir, Henry, the Canada Line / Skytrain to church, people going around with suitcases, and more on the way home. For some reason, my leg started to hurt, but it was okay - and went away as soon as I got home. Chinese Eric said hi, and I bugged Corey about leaving immense spaces in my messages. Discussed The Stupid Idiot thinking he can use Corey to get to me (we both don't think he'll pay me back), white Eric's birthday, just waking up at 7:30 AM Hong Kong time, Nathan and the UK, the rainy weather here compared to hot / cloudy in Hong Kong, computers, passport expiry issues, and more.
Facebook quizzes taken from Kitty:
Leslie took the What 1970 Hit Song Are You? quiz and the result is Let It Be by the Beatles. When you experience trouble or hard times, you realize that life goes on, and you just have to let it be. You are optimistic, and have hope that the future will be better.
Leslie completed the quiz "Who do you end up with in a Jane Austen Book?" with the result Mr. George Knightley. Your guy is Mr. George Knightley, from Jane Austen's Emma... which makes you Emma. He is a close friend of yours, and your only real critic, though he cares deeply for you, which is why you are never truly offended by his comments. Since you two were friends for a long time, you may not have noticed that you loved him until he became unavailable, but he has nearly always loved you as more than a friend or sister. Since you're so prone to scheming and meddling, or at the very least living life only for fun, he keeps you in line as best he can. He's just what you need. He is your more sensible half, but he loves you enough to humor you and go along with your plans, until you are doing someone more harm than good. Honest, gracious, charitable, and straight-forward, he's an all-around good guy.
