This morning was the second time in a row that I’ve awoken to a sharp pain in both my arms. At first, in my sleepy daze I would start to panic that I had been ambushed in the middle of the night which had left my extremeties incapacitated, only to begin whimpering at the realization that my attempts to rearrange my pillows and fall back asleep were futile, haha. Tuesday night’s Capoeira class involved lots of arm work, particularly push-ups, and my stick-like arms met their match. It’s not like a good type of sore too, it feels like I broke something. I’m so stiff in my triceps that I can’t even get my right hand to touch my right shoulder. And strangely enough, each day I wake up with it feeling worse! Ah, who knows. I guess my arms could use a bit of toning. But man, even scratching my nose has become a painful feat. Now moving on, haha.

Keeping with the tradition of this quarter, here’s the weekend review! This weekend I…

  • Went home and hung out with my parents Friday night.
  • Hung out with Ryan Saturday night. He made beef stroganoff! We made strawberry shortcakes. I cut strawberries well.
  • Had d-d-diiiim sum at House of Hong on Sunday with the INFO crew. Yeah, way to go table of thirteen. Thanks to all you guys who came out. Hooray for shrimp ball variations.
  • Was invited by Val to celebrate Passover with her at the the Hillel Center for Jewish Life Sunday evening. It was sensory overload; my eyes kept wandering around the room to take everything in, while I tried to sing songs in Hebrew and simultaneously read the English translation. Not to mention trying to figure out what item on the Seder plate to touch and/or taste next. All this plus a little bit of wine on an empty stomach can be quite dizzying. For an event lasting over three hours, the entire thing flew by. Great food. Good discussion. The rabbis there really emphasized the event as a learning experience which was pretty cool.

Yup, and now onto this week of exams. But for now:

Firefox = Panda?

So I was going through my blogs just now and started checking out this guy, when I read the following:

In case you didn’t know, the Chinese name for a red panda is hunho or firefox, due to their color and similar size to a fox.

Red panda?
