We were graced by the presence of Aaron Leung for a few days this week. We'll write about it in the upcoming Weekend Roundup [update: here].
On Thursday, Ken Dry invited us to his apartment to drink his liquor (and help him clean some things). It was a good time.
PICTURE OF THE WEEK:
See yesterday's post.
And this (explained below):
GOOGLE GROUPS POST OF THE WEEK, pt 1:
Candice Lee and her bowling league (titled "BOWLING 2011 (almost)"), 12/15:
I hope everyone is doing well and getting ready for the new year/new bowling season!
In January we will commencing next bowling league, so get out your shoes, your balls, and game face.
This coming *Monday, Dec Thursday, Dec 20* will be a *WARM UP BOWL at Gongti 100 at 9pm. *
It's going to be a real casual bowling session, but it's just a good opportunity to massage our egos and shine our balls. I know this is a bit last minute, but come on out if you have time! We can just rent lane by lane and sip on some cocktails（tiger beer?). btw, byo.
Also,* if you're interested in signing up for bowling league next year, send me an email before January 10 so that I can set up the brackets*. I'm thinking Thursday nights at 9pm, similar to last year. The *start date will be January 13.* This year I will really send out the final scores and be more organized. It will probably be about 45 rmb per person per league game.
Each team can have from 4-5 players (4 main players, 1 alternate). Try to have teams co-ed, but I understand otherwise. * Send me team names!*
Please forward this out to anyone who would be interested in joining! I can put them on the mailing list (I'm sure I've forgotten bunches of people). Otherwise, if you want off, just let me know and you will no longer receive fun emails from me. ( for bowling at least, not guaranteed for kickball)
There will also be an* impromtu pre-pre bowl tomorrow night, Thurs Dec 16, at 9pm.Candice
Let's get em rolling,
GOOGLE GROUPS POST OF THE WEEK, pt 2:
betsy is back after basking in the philippines and getting her fill of beaches, sunshine, and chiseled, tropical, testosterone-filled men (read: lincoln) before returning to freezing beijing to hibernate for the winter. she knows you (read: tao) were going through betsy withdrawal, but betsy wouldn't abandon you (read: baby girl) and
deprive you (read: still baby girl) of her scintillating seasonal sauciness. because she loves you (read: oh crap, maybe was that andy?). yes she does.

now is the time in the weekly email when betsy gives her weekly shout outs and call outs. remember, you want to get shouted out, but you do not want to get called out.
--special manila edition--
a shout out to zahlen. sure, you are fatter and slower, getting older, and not as sharp-witted as you once were. but something something thanks for playing with big brother in manila. it was pretty great.
a call out to ellen. next time baby girl invents a game that directly involves embarrassing and upsetting you, try harder not to be embarrassed and upset. it ruins all the fun.
a shout out to rob. betsy doesn’t care what everyone else says about you, she still thinks you are fun.
a call out to subic. possibly more parking attendants would improve the experience. beijing did not feel like all their parking needs were being met. just a suggestion.
a shout out to chaitkin. yay chaitkin.
a call out to kevin. more botched jeepny rentals, please. what does a girl have to do to get completely lost and ripped off in the philippines nowadays? go home with a green man, perhaps?
a shout out to nina. nina played an entire tournament without injuring anyone. jim’s feelings do not count.
a call out to green man. betsy knows what happened on the golf course, and she’s never going to be able to think of “hole 10” on the “back nine” the same way again.
a shout out to femtight. gareth can tell you why.
a call out to penifresh. betsy is allergic to tutti-fruiti and now she has a rash. on her feet. joe can tell you why.
a shout out to hhh, nicki, baby girl, gareth, and jim. seriously, you all deserved the awards given to you. no joking. for reals yo. also tao and zach for the greatest. seriously everyone.
and finally, your moment of zen…
catch you on the field,
And Tao, a mere 25 minutes later:
Oh, great, Betsy is back whoring up the town. Are you using protection this time at least, you skank?
But Alex Ornik is REALLY excited. No, seriously.
