Garbage bags for slip slides

Works like a charm! Practically felt like I was on The Cyclone again. The best was when we made a train of people to get pick on momentum for a sure bang at the bottom of the hill. It was Silver, Nelly, Remo and I taking turns to get shotgun. Garbage bags- you gotta try it. Butt boards aren't so bad either, but that really depends on how big your butt is.

Sleds for Fruit

This made me laugh. I wish I could learn how to use my head as a back pack more.

Where do desires lead to?

Gong Xi Fa Cai!

There is no better way to bring in the New Year than to make an ice sculpture of a tiger. Where's the chocolate fountain?! Stick coins on the tiger for good luck. Don't lick it. I didn't realize that there was going to be a celebration in the Main Square on Sunday so I missed a Chinese man playing the erhu. many Asians are there in all of Estonia, I wonder. I can count how many there are in Tartu using my hands. To be fair, I'm only half a finger. And now that I think of it I didn't catch any erhu shows in the subways while in NYC. Don't tell me they're a dying breed!

My new backpack!

Just arrived in Tartu and was greeted with streets so thick with snow. My suitcase was practically a snow shovel for the roads. Paving the way for the slippery streets to freeze. And now my arms are feeling it. Missing everybody and my favorite backpack! Wish I could have taken it (him) with me, but I probably wouldn't have gotten much studying then. Sniff sniff...guess I'll just have cereal for dinner tonight in the silence of white, elves, and cabbage.

Я Edwardovna.

I learned in Russian class that my new name is Arlene Edwardovna (Aрлин Эдвардoвнa) meaning daughter of Edward (Aрлин, дочь Эдвард). Doesn't sound that cute, but if this doesn't have Ellis Island written all over it then I don't know what does. Just for fun when I googled to see what images would appear for Arlene Edwardovna the truth to our special existence appeared, "Your search - Arlene Edwardovna - did not match any documents". Dad, together we are one of a kind!

And when I googles images of Unique Tuckers this came up:

I think that's pretty spot on.
