Tina's going away. Sad. She'll be in Europe and we'll all miss her, but she's coming back in six weeks, so it could be worse. I had a nice visit with her last night. She's putting all her stuffed animals into foster homes with her friends so I am now the proud guardian of Thump the Acrobatic Pig. Have a good trip, Tina!

Oh, and Tina taught me a few words in Cantonese last night, too. So now I can say such highly useful things as "duck," "head," "nose," and a few colors. That was fun. Confusing, though, since I have to think so differently about pronunciation. There's the very precise inflection, of course, but also all these strange, imaginary consonants. You have to think them, more than you actually say them. At least, that's the way it seemed to me.

I will hopefully go contradancing tonight for the first time in... hmmm... months, probably. It's been a while. That will be good to do.
