Oyster Picnic #2 at Tomales Bay Oyster Co.

Crazy cat...

This is our second time at Tomales Bay Oyster Co. and we still have to tweak the menu a bit. We brought too much extra food so not too many oysters were consumed this time. Menu included chicken drumsticks, brownies, a quart of guacamole and chips, jello shots, bread and cheese, beer, wine, coconut juice...gah! Photos were taken with my phone using the Retro Camera app and Barbl setting.

You Suck At PowerPoint!

Recently had a not-so-good training session at work. I think we need to go back to requiring rehearsals because presenters don't time themselves very well nor understand who their audience is. Maybe I should also send this to them when they're preparing.

What I wore today. Heading out to grab some ramen and purchase some Japanese goods at Mitsuwa Marketplace. The post title has to do with the print of my tunic, which has white foxes all over it. Fox in Japanese is kitsune.

Thai Class

One of my resolutions for 2011 is to continue studying Thai so starting today I am taking advanced Thai at Wat Mongkol (aka the Berkeley Thai Temple) every Sunday from 1 to 4 pm. Today was my first day and already my brain felt like it was going to explode. Just look at the passage we had to read today!

Some notes I made after today's class:

-Thai prose doesn't have punctuation to indicate the end of a sentence.
-Thai prose does incorporate quotation marks.
-Thai has different symbols for numbers.
-I am the only Thai person in my advanced class, which as five people total. Three are older Caucasian males and one is a younger female.

And I already have homework due next week, which I'm kind of happy about. Maybe because I miss being a student.
