I had a pretty good day today. Got some stuff done… my friend and I decided on our Chinese thing (our final oral of the year for Chinese class is a performance, i.e, drama, song, dance, etc, meant to be funny. Problem: I’m not funny!!!). Emma came up with the idea of doing the Three Little Pigs. It’s cute, it’s recognisable to the audience (even if our Chinese isn’t! :P) and we can maybe change the story a bit and spice it up. And we get to wear pig noses! I’ll keep you updated. If all goes pear-shaped I’ve at least found the story in Chinese to work from on this website. Apparently 老师 wants all the performances to be taped… I do not feel good about this.
In other news, I just realised that Justin Chambers, a.k.a Dr. Alex Karev from Grey’s, was Massimo from The Wedding Planner. Crazy. Nice accent. Not sure where he’s supposed to be from but it fooled me!
And thanks to Pete from Rove here’s a pretty amusing clip of Sal and Richard (no I don’t know who they are), doing funny things behind a CNN reporter talking about the economic crisis on Wall Street.
Oh and I almost forgot, Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd was on Rove tonight – props to him for going on the show, but I have to say he was boring! But he did demonstrate his Mandarin skillz. You can see it on YouTube here (about 23secs in), as well as lots of other clips of him speaking 普通话.
