Hanyu Pinyin = China's revenge

I have a couple of coupons for $1.50 off of any order from Sheet Music Plus that I'm not going to use, so if you're interested, leave a comment. They're valid until the end of September.

[Edit: BTW is anyone joining that MLB Insiders Club thing?]

Life is boring, but in a good way. I've been working, watching Olympic volleyball and diving and enjoying it. There was an amazing game where China was up 2 games to nothing (best of 5) on Cuba and had match point in Game 3 but lost, then had like 7 game points in Game 4 but lost that too and Cuba came back to win it. I really like the way the Chinese women's team looks, though. But still hoping that Team USA will medal. :)

I'm really fascinated that one of the American announcers of the game can pronounce Zhou correctly! I didn't think it was one of those consonants that people can make unless their language has it. I thought he might actually be saying "Joe", but after listening to it a few more times, I think he's saying it right. I feel sorry for all the poor announcers who have to deal with the Romanized spelling of Chinese names, haha. Xue? Qun? Yu? No chance to pronounce those even close to right from reading them. :P
