This Drawing is for Kalo!

3 Feb

I have titled it: The Sad Lament of the Egg

Yesterday for Chinese New Year there was a bottle of wine on the table. The adults each had a tiny bit, but basically that one bottle lasted 13 people the whole night. And that was only because James drank half of it once he realised the adults weren’t going for any more.

James: In my family, for special dinners we’ll go through 5 bottles between 8 people
Me: You know, they were probably expecting to take home half that bottle. We were going to save it for next Chinese New Year

Also, the butt of one of the lions (I think the red and gold one) at our CNY dinner knew my cousin Jon.

So when the lions paraded past us you could hear the butt half going “pst! Jon! Hey Jon! Jon!”

Even though I’m not really a fan of the traditional CNY banquet (especially since there were several bug sightings that night!), it was good to catch up with the cousins. Happy CNY to everyone!

      White people always drink heaps! Chinese people don’t tend to drink so much because we go red really quickly.

      My sister took my cousin to a party once. My cousin had a couple of sips of a UDL – her face went BRIGHT red and she had to sit down for awhile.
