1. Xiaopeng’s wife is living in Chicago while he is doing Phd at East Lansing and claims Chicago is his home. Jiankun was like, “See this is the man. Home is where the woman is.” I was like, “Well, obviously we are homeless…”
2. Zoey knocked at Margo’s door when Margo was not home almost one year ago. I told her, “Margo’s not home.” She kidded me like, “I didn’t ask you, Barton.” “Well, I didn’t talk to you, Zoey.” I kidded her back.
3. I was watching an online interview of a scholar talking about his Phd adviser who is demanding in a hilarious way.
3.1 His adviser believed one of the scholar’s papers was so bad and he didn’t even wanna talk about it. So the scholar worked really hard for three days improving it. The adviser read the improved paper and became satisfied like, “Good. Now the paper is worth criticizing…”
3.2 The adviser made a comment on the scholar’s adviser for his undergraduate study like, “You worked with that guy before?! That guy’s idea is so bad that it’s not even wrong… (meaning the idea is un-testable.)”
Jiankun has been craving for BBQ for the past week and it reminded me of the hardcore BBQ I came across four years ago. Obviously they did it right..
