Finally started getting some more videos uploaded to Facebook. ;D

Shaoxing: Videos taken during the time of the Demo from Hell (TM).

Video 1 - we're in the car, the kids are insane, and Hallen tries desperately to convince us she's actually going to do better than last place in her video game. Which, for the record, has never, and will never happen. :D

Video 2 - on the pedicab with Happy! Happy is always fun to chat with, especially when you're being cycled around town.

More video under the cut. )

Let's start with life, actually. I went out and bought myself a lawn chair for my balcony. The sun is out almost every day here now, and it's gorgeous and warm and breezy and I have new books to read. This just SCREAMS of laying out in the sun. I shall post pics once the damn thing is put together. Which may take a while - I bought a kitchen organizer a week and a half ago and its corpse is still scattered around the kitchen, leaking screws and bits of metal post.

Another Open Class this Saturday in Qingpu. There are some teachers from another district coming to watch and take notes, but hey, no pressure. A fleet of teachers from Hangzhou are also coming next Wednesday to watch my five, who had better behave or I'll behead all of them with my textbook.

[personal profile] just_jesse  came over for dinner last night. It was fantabulous. I made chicken wings with mom's special sauce (yummy!) and frenchfries. We also had cucumbers and celery and real Bleu Cheese dressing (Jo has a new City Supermarket near her home, damn the woman. I still need to go downtown). She also helped me bake mountains of cookies. Why were there mountains of cookies in need of baking?

Because the grade 5's made cookies yesterday. They had a recipe they wrote down, mixed all the stuff together, rolled it out, used the cookie cutters, and I enlisted office people's help to carry trays of cookies home where we spent the next two hours baking cookies, two trays at a time, for 7 minute intervals. And I still have a huge bowl of dough left. >.<;;;;;;

I have a new desktop picture. It's pretty. Teaser:

Shiny knees. *petspetspets*

About a month ago, I was offered the chance to design a creative writing/art class hybrid. Design it myself, anything I wanted to do, all materials provided for (ANYTHING at all), and just do it.

Because it's new, I only had 3 students show up for today's test run. if the parents like it, they sign up for a full course. I got paid for today, but it was essentially a free class.

All the parents LOVED it, the kids didn't want to leave, and all of them signed up for the course. The American lady (whose son was a real hoot during class!) said she'd recommend MY course to other parents, to have them come out and give it a try. ^^

I feel so... accomplished. :D  Granted this now means I officially now have no days off (still working Saturdays in Qingpu for the next 6 weeks), but I don't even care. The classrooms are gorgeous, my every whim is indulged, no one stands over me and marks on my performance... it's seriously my own little class, my own world where I don't have to follow anyone's textbook or outline except my OWN. I LOVE IT.

And seriously, I need to post pics of the school. It's so beautiful. ^^
