I just realized how foreign our weekend plans sound so figured I'd share. I haven't been very inspired to write lately. The new system at work is driving me bonkers.
Tonight, we're having dinner at the Italian Club with our neighbors (the female half of the couple was born in Italy, they met and married there, but now live here most of the year).
Tomorrow, we're planning to spend the better part of the day researching where we want to visit in India, and trying to decide what other countries we'll visit, if any. Other spots in contention: Nepal, Sri Lanka, Maldives, United Arab Emirates, Qatar.
Tomorrow night, we are performing a song with two other sets of neighbors. Yes, performing. In public. In Chinese. Dear God, help us! A.) I am the least musical person ever. My singing is usually described as flat, and I believe I am legitimately tone deaf. B.) We barely speak Chinese. This is a song to celebrate the Chinese New Year, and we are only singing the chorus (which is basically: Congratulations, congratulations, congratulations to you. Congratulations, congratulations, congratulations you (not sure how exactly to differentiate the two lines, one has a finishing word on it, the other does not).
Sunday night, we are going out to dinner with one of my former co-workers. We'll likely go for tapas, either Middle Eastern or Spanish (my fave tapas place is closed that night though). But it's particularly international because my former coworker now lives in Shanghai, and is someone we went there to visit on our 2012 Chinese Vacation Extravaganza! I'm sure he will be highly amused to hear us give an encore performance of our New Year's chorus.
So all three dinners (including one in 2 hours, need to go change) will involve speaking foreign languages -- Italian and Chinese, and the day time will be spent planning visits to at least one other country. So multicultural we are! Haha.
