My tendencies toward obsession have been preoccupied with college football for the past couple of days.
In fact, my Facebook status has something to do with OU still sucking at 8 p.m. Saturday night. What can I say, I like the idea of being "in the future."
I'm proud that although I'm 13 hours ahead and I can't even watch college ball, I still wear my orange every Saturday (even though the game generally doesn't even play until my Sunday) and I do everything I can to keep up with the stats.
I "watch" the game on the CBS College GameTracker. What can I say, I'm a Texas girl — not to mention I certainly have a team worth being proud of.
We're supposed to go out in Taipei tonight for a few of the teachers' birthdays (three people's birthdays in the next week!). I'm still trying to figure out how I can manage to keep up with the game while I'm out dancing with my friends. Maybe there will be a sports bar nearby playing ESPN or something.
I feel like I have a better chance in Taipei.
Other things that have happened recently:
Yesterday, the fire alarm went off in our building for something like an hour. They made some big announcement in Chinese and then it started going off. At first I thought it was the car dealership attached to our building because now and then I hear announcements coming from there.
Then I went out into the hallway and it was definitely the loudest thing ever.
I totally didn't get it until way later, but one of my friends' called in a Chinese Fire Drill.
If you don't know what a Chinese Fire Drill is, see below:
I'll just leave you with that.
