After my classes, I worked a bit more on my yukata. This time I marked the body panels. The exciting part is, the teacher gave me my own copy of the guidebook she's using, which really helps explain things well. I'm hoping to get a chance to update my yukata page this weekend.
Speaking of the weekend, I agreed to attend a party being held by?for? the city's International Exchange group. I was called up today in regard to this event.
Person on phone: Amparo-sensei?
Person on phone: Will you take a call from someone at the Board of Education?
<waits for a while, but nothing happens>
<starts flipping through random textbook, still holding silent phone>
Person from BoE: Amparo-sensei?
Me: <finally> Yes?
Person from BoE: Were you waiting all this time?
Person from BoE: So was I. I didn't hear anyone on the other end, so...
<thinks, *You* called *me* for crying out loud!>
Anyway, they thoughtfully asked about what I could eat, knowing I'm vegetarian. The planned meal will consist of sushi, so I quickly named off several kinds of sushi that I can eat. (I was then asked if I could eat fish sushi. <No.> Not even cooked fish? <No, not even cooked fish.> Can you eat soup with fish? <No.> So, just vegetable soup, then? <Now you've got the idea.>)
