Funny Things Friday :)

I definitely need some funny things this Friday :) so..... for your viewing pleasure :)
Here's a "Frams Torner" Action Figure :)
This was on a big sign about giving your kids the injections (shots) they need :) I just think it's funny that the shot is hugging the baby :)
The other night at our Friday night market I saw this cart being pushed around. I couldn't get a very good picture because he didn't want me to take a picture... but I just had to :) It's a cart full of toothbrushes! They were 5 rupees :) (about 11 cents) :)
This sign is in the metro and always makes me laugh :) One of our friends got fined the other day :)... haha! (yeah, this sign and the fine are totally necessary)
The other day we were watching the Cricket World Cup with our neighbors and one of the guys wanted more water, so he yelled up to his wife on the top floor. she threw down the basket and he put his empty bottles in it and she pulled them back up. She filled them up and sent them back down :)
At lot of people that live on top floors do this for deliveries, getting vegetables and all kinds of things - I think it's hilarious :)
Awesome :) I hope you have a fun Funny Friday :)

Those are awesome!! In Syria they had the basket for deliveries too. I thought it was pretty smart. I'm not sure I would be brave enough to buy one of those tooth brushes!!!!

If a shot tried hugging Kaya she would beat it down! :)

That basket is a good idea!! In Amsterdam I saw people get their furniture moved in that way. (obviously with more sophisticated equipment :) Their houses and doorways were too narrow so they had to bring their couches and other things in through the windows!
So fun! And interesting that they really do enforce the no spitting rule!

I like it that the verb for spit kinda sounds like you are spitting. Very creative and it teaches me a new verb.:-)

Once (only once) before, I saw the toothbrush cart. I've always wanted a picture. Hilarious that they are all open and everyone is digging through them. Love it!

Florida Gators!

OK, so don't get me wrong by the title... I'm a super proud Florida State Grad and a big FSU fan... but this week here in Thailand, Tim Tebow is hanging out with us :) For those that don't know, he's the quarterback for University of Florida - he's a believer and a really awesome bold guy. So, since he's a Heisman winner (AND the only underclassman to ever win the Heisman) we thought we should get Aashini in a Heisman pose with him :) haha!

The Hijras are Coming!!!!

Today we had a fun / interesting cultural experience :) Here in our country, there are these people called Hijras हिजड़ा .... or Eunuchs. Most of these people are true eunuchs - they were born without male or female parts. They all live together in their own ghetto. If you have a child that is a Hijra, then they will come and demand you for your child and people here will give them their child. They all live together and in order to get money, they mostly do a glorified sort of begging. They are always dressed to the hilt. They come and visit you when you've had something big happen in your life - usually weddings and.... NEW BABIES. They come and dance and make a HUGE ruckus. They ususally do this until they are given a large amount of money. Some of them can be quite crazy and violent, but mostly they will just annoy you to death, barge into your home (or wedding) and dance and sing around until you give them money (usually around $100-200 is their demand).

Campa Cola & Exploring :)

Today we had some things to do in the Central part of our city, so while we were there, we decided to take on some adventures :) Adventure #1 - the underground market. This market is pretty crazy. It's actually underground and has electronics & clothes mostly. They sell things pretty cheap, so it's an interesting place to go. Today we got an 64 Gig flash drive/pen drive for about $5. Crazy hunh? Here's Adam and Aashini in one of the stores. They're all REALLY small stores - about 10x10 feet I would guess (but I'm really bad at guessing that sort of stuff :)) We go here a lot to get things, so I guess it's not a new adventure, but an adventure nonetheless.
Before the next part of our adventure (the real part of our adventure) we stopped for lunch. Aashini will always eat at McDonalds, so that's where we went :) They just started selling chicken nuggets here at McDonalds, so it's super easy to get her to eat there :) This McDonald's had high chair…
