Ahh Cambodia...

Sep. 11th, 2008 | 03:33 pm

Teen Mania is notorious for not feeding their missionaries wonderful meals. Which should not surprise me, since i went to Mexico a few years ago with them. Nevertheless, After about three weeks of nothing but PBJ's for lunch, my team and I began to grow weary of them. My translator noticed and graciously offered to cook for us. His name is Moto and he wants to be a chef, naturally we thanked him and assumed he'd be making rice and something. (In the past we've had rice and chicken, rice and beef, rice and pork once they gave us rice and......meat? terrifying) but then our younger translator runs up and says, "We are having the Spider-Tea for our lunch! We are having the Spider-Tea!" We spent the whole day dreading something we figured would be soupy and hairy. but when we got back to our lunch spot they pulled out the Italian  Dish you and I would refer to as: SPAGHETTI. I miss Cambodian accents.

I'm remembering

Sep. 7th, 2008 | 01:37 pm

The good old days. Back in Cambodia and Thailand. When I took bucket showers, ran away from huge jumping spiders and tried not to get tackled by street vendors. because that happened. You see, in Asia, apparently, all the people have built in sensors and they can tell Americans from Europeans even if we don't open our mouths. And since America is the best country ever- they automatically think we're all rich and famous. So, I'm squished in this mass of guys from Italy or something and i get grabbed by this tiny Thai man. He says,  
"You buy.... from me."  So, sue me, i'm nice and i walk over to his booth. Only to find out he's selling these old boxing shorts. you know, the kind Rocky wore when he went against Apollo, the top goes up to his belly button, but barely covers his butt. "You buy. You buy." at which point I'm at a loss for words.  "Yes, you buy for boyfriend." he encourages. Yes! i think to myself  A loophole! "I don't have a boyfriend." I turn to walk away, "Then buy for your father. Yes, you buy, for your father." Okay these shorts are small, even according to the boxing shorts standard, so I say, "Oh my father. He is big man..... very tall."  Then the guy starts throwing shorts eveywhere as a crowd starts to surround me, wondering why a 16-year old American girl is looking at Thai boxing shorts. He gets to the bottom of the pile and shouts, "Have big sizes! Yes, very big! King Kong sizes, you buy for your father!" I turned and ran, and now it's just a memory..................I shoulda bought the shorts.

Regarding Garden Gnomes

Feb. 29th, 2008 | 02:01 pm

Everyone has seen garden gnomes, and in my limited experience, i find people either love them, or they are terrified by them. So  this is my question to you: What if you met a live one? I did the other day, he came into the store and i was bagging his stuff. all of a sudden the pop thingy (that's the technical term) opens by itself. but it was only the managers 8 yr old son. so, i was like, 
                     "Geez, thought it was a gnome." well. the guy looks at me and then looks at the kid and says, 
                     "OH Thought you were talkin' 'bout me!" and his wife says, 
                     "He does looklike one doesn't he?"  What can could I say. I chuckled and told them to have a nice day. then l8r, after telling mum, I saw the guy in mejier I'm lik
                      "omg! mum, mum.....quick it's the gnome!" needless to say I got a couple weird looks from people.

I call it "Rodrigez"

Feb. 29th, 2008 | 08:14 am

So, last night my mum and i were too exhausted to do our regular Taebo ritual. (because we went shopping all day after work! ugh!) But still I was like, "Mum come on, lets just do it." she replied along the lines of, " Are you psychotic!?" but then we were talking about eating habits and how we could eat healthier and I said, "i'm naming my stomach." 
I'll remind you I was in a shopping-induced like trance, so I was kinda whacked. The bubble wrap addiction may have added to that. But then I started thinking and yelled, "I call it Rodrigez!" Mum glanced over at me, and said tentatively, "Why Rodrigez?" I scoffed, "And you call yourself a Tigers fan! Hello-PUDGE Rodrigez!" So she laughed at me and told me I'd better go to bed. I love Mum.
