what we do on the weekends.

when they let matt out of his cage for a while, we explore the city.


we found an international women's professional volleyball competition. matt is an avid beach volley player, and i can aim a pretty good bump three times outta five, so we thought this would be a mutually enjoyable saturday activity. there was definitely a little home court advantage going on... china had at least 4 women's pairs competing, and they were all stellar athletes. i was shocked to see such tall chinese women, but i guess when you're working with a population of 1.3 bil, you've gotta have a freakishly tall girl buried in there somewhere.


remember these chinese brutes for beijing 08 (i think the one on the left's last name was wang)... years of communistic athletic training has served them extremely well. they were the team to beat, and i dare say they have kerri walsh and misty may's number. makes me wanna jump on a treadmill, ya?


go team philippines! they were really probably a couple of USC coeds born in southern cal to immigrant filipino parents, but we cheered for them anyway. basically we cheered for any team going up against the chinese.

and when in rome... we went to a karaoke bar. well, it was more like a karaoke hotel. each party had their own private room with snacks, video games, and of course, karaoke.


this stuff is serious business... matt's co-workers had definitely done this before and were actually really good.


butchering a carpenter's classic, "close to you."


and, a little love.

I got those jeans in Italy. They totally don't fit anymore. I have to leave them un-button'd and I use a belt. That was the last time I am going to wear them for awhile. They are officially too small! You look so good! Your belly bump is barely showing!!
