YCQ #14: Going to the Moon

Well folks, we've come around again to that best of times, time for the wonderful widely acclaimed program, back by popular demand -- The Yellow Card Question Show!

The theme song of the day is 十月 (October) by that underground sensation 阿楼 (A Lou). Hit the button to start that going, and you can read my translation of the lyrics here.

Are you ready for this?! Can I hear you say "yeah"?! No? Is that not how this medium works? Oh. There are some really cool people who have a plugin to do voice comments. But I think that's just for Wordpress. Livejournal has voice posts, but I don't think they have voice comments. So yeah, I guess I'm not going to hear you say "yeah". I'll have settle for hallucinating it then.

Are you ready for this?! Can I hallucinate hearing you say "yeah"?! Maybe with a little more coffee and candy canes?!! Or maybe not. Okay I'll settle for a comment after the fact. Go ahead and type "yeah".

Um. So where were we? Yeah! The moment you've been waiting all month for, the all new Yellow Card Question! Here you go folks, the one and only Yellow Card that can cure all your ills and give you new ones, write your tests, take them, and grade them for you!

Well, if I could go on vacation to the moon for free, I think I might like that, but otherwise there are other things I would rather spend my time and money on, and other places I would rather be. You can go, and send me a postcard.

Oh, I wanted to answer, too. No, I don't want to go to the moon. I'd rather go to lots of other places, like Europe, South America, China, Washington, D.C., and Disneyland!And yes, I'd like to sign up for the "write your tests, and grade them, too" service. =)

My husband-to-be owns property on the moon. At this point in time, that is the only property we own. I might consider it a housing option, but the commute might kill us.

That said, at my stage in life, I've done the tourist thing, and now the traveling I like to do is going some place where I already have family or friends (or under an arrangement where I can quickly make family or friends) who can give me the inside view of a place. Take for example my trip to Jinhua in October (ooh, that's catchy, maybe it should be a song). In just six days I added several friends and a daughter-in-law. I don't think the moon can offer that.

Okay, first of all let me say that I hope that Jinhua song rhymes better in the Jinhua dialect than it does in English. I did like the last line about him buying me some hot pot. I would like that very much, thank you. YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!

Secondly, about the moon. No, I don't want to go there. It doesn't have any trees and I don't like places without trees. I think it's pretty from far away and probably not so pretty from up close. So I'm with you on the "send me a post card" bit.
