PY Heart Jackie Chan

I believe everyone knows how I feel about Jackie Chan, but what a pleasant suprise to know that in Paraguay, everyone here feels exactly the same!

I have seen the following Jackie Chan movies since being in site for a month:

The Medallion
Rumble in the Bronx
First Strike
The Tuxedo

If you think about it, that is a lot of Jackie Chan for only 1 month in site, and not all my host families have televisions.

There is also a wonderful 80s retro station here that I listen to as often as I can. Most of us G-25 Crop Extensionist know this station due to our tech excursion weekend when we went to Salto Cristal falls. We were lost in a sugar cane field and heard the song 'Everybody´s Guile' that went on saying the same thing (Guile) for like 20 minutes. The songs are so random. I heard an Oasis tune, Barry Manilow, and right after, Gene Loves Jezebel.

Gene Loves Jezebel, people!!! Talk about obscure 80s tunes!

Not much else to report. I am getting ready for my site presentation where my boss is coming out for a visit, and I hope to get a good turn out.
I move into my house on the 8th. Wish me luck. I have to find a good bug bomb to get out all the creepy crawlies. I seriously killed a spider as big as my palm.
Let me repeat that.

I Jackie Chaned it´s azz.

` Yeeeeah! That's the cool think about squashing bugs - you can pretend to be martial arts masters!
` PS, you're doing so much better than me with keeping up with your posts. Even so, I managed to stay on long enough to do this!

dare i ask what one uses to kill a spider as big as one's palm? please don't tell me you used your palm. i'm thinking a size twelve shoe would be required, at the very least.
