My future

When I get back home, I'm going to start studying at a university.
If I learn a lot and study hard, I shouldn't be kicked out after one semester.. .
Unless I have finished my studies, I don't want to have children.
In case I get the chance to study abroad, I'll take it!
Because I had really great experiences here in Vancouver, I'd like to do it again.
After my study, I'll start a "serious life" and "hard work" ;)
As soon as I get rich, I'll buy a house.. .
Once I have a family, I want to be able to provide their lifestyle.
Before I start a serious life, I'll enjoy my life as much as possible.

Although I know that I wrote really stupid sentences about my future, they may come true (or not).

Who is Hu?

The (really bad) "joke" yesterday in class remembered me of a better joke, which is already some years old, but playing in the same way. However, to tell it to you by using direct speech and a lot of adverbs makes it less funny (just a dialogue would fit way better!).. .

In the White House:

George W. Bush asks gently "Condi! Nice to see you. What's happening?"
Condoleezza Rice tells him directly "Sir, I have the report here about the new leader of China."
Bush orders her politely "Great. Lay it on me."
She replies honestly "Hu is the new leader of China."
He reacts immediately "That's what I want to know."
Condi explains patiently "That's what I'm telling you."
"That's what I'm asking you," Bush gets back to her. "Who is the new leader of China?"
She tells him naturally "Yes."
Bush says "I mean the fellow's name."
Condi replies candidly "Hu."
Bush reacts nerved "The guy in China."
Again, she replies candidly "Hu."
He explains more precisely "The new leader of China."
For the third time, Condi replies candidly "Hu."
Bush reacts enervated "The Chinaman!"
Condi explains again "Hu is leading China."

And so, the dialogue goes on. But, for this blog it should be enough...
You get the whole joke told in a little motion picture on YouTube (really funny!): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jU_aw3SCUV8

Indy became old - and boring

Last week I saw the newest Indiana Jones movie, whose title is "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull". I expected a typical adventure-movie that includes action, some explosions, a lot of jokes and a funny story - characteristic things for the older films of the series.

But I was badly disappointed! There were aliens in the movie! Imagine: aliens in an adventure-movie! You can't do that at all, it's a no-go! That's just not Indiana Jones. I don't want to see a sci-fi-film!

Also the story was deadly unrealistic. An example: At the beginning, a nuclear bomb explode, when Indy was just hiding in a fridge - but, of course, it was no problem for our hero to hold the door closed, even when he hurtled several kilometers because of the explosion. Or: Indy meet his son and ex-girlfriend during his adventure. At the end, they married. It's so cheesy!

What was good in the film: Of course, the music, especially the famous Indy-melody ("datadadaaaa, datadaaaa - you know... ;) that is a real catchy tune. The special effects were also okay, but that's something you await from a big Hollywood blockbuster, don't you? And there were some funny jokes in it.

At all, I wouldn't recommend watching the movie in theatres. It's a sleeper! You do better, when you go to rent one of the old movies.

But here, for those who are interested: Watch the trailer on http://youtube.com/watch?v=lPTJ4v6KPrg.

A strange encounter I've had in Vancouver

Actually I'm just here for some days - so I don't have a real strange encounter to write about... .

When I arrived at the airport, someone should pick me up and bring me to my home stay family. I found the man quite fast but he told me that we would have to wait for a Korean girl who will drive with us.

After about ten minutes she finally arrived and the driver was ready to go. But then the girl had totally disappeared! Where did she go? First I thought, she might have been gone to toilet without saying anything. My driver had the opinion she would be very shy and he was sure the girl must have been waited somewhere in the arriving hall.

So we searched there for her until the driver had the idea the Korean girl had to have been gone outside of the building - and, what a luck, after 20 minutes we found her finally there!

(I know, it's kind of a boring story...)
