As I was very busy (i had school every day except of monday) this week i had no time to write into my blog.
I'll give you now a short review of my week.
Friday: On Friday i went skiing with jeni (another german exchange student). I was lucky, the woman on the lift ticket counter gave me the ticket for free....and i have no idea why
We had lots of fun...afterwards jeralyn picked me up and we went to a steak house for uncle jim's birthday party (with lots of people). It was awesome...i had a big burger and a mud pie which was also ginormous for dessert (it's ice cream).
Saturday: i don't really remember what i did on Satruday. not very much, i think. i did something for school and in the evening we were invited to dinner at a friend's house. another time there was a whole bunch of people (it is a group of 6 couples that had children at about the same the, so you can imagine that there were lots of people). With one of the guys i went to the community hall dance...which is a little party for the high school kids. It was good...except of the music (they played hip hop).
Sunday: as you may know there was the super bowl (meisterschaftsspiel der american football league). It is huge event. The game takes from 3 till like 6 o'clock (but it's interrupted by lots of commercials(werbung)...there are lots of funny ones, so some people watch the super bowl more because of the commercials. the commercials are really expensive...30sec cost about 2 million.
For super bowl we went to the super bowl party at the grandparent's. We watched it on their humongous tv and had some chips and burgers.
The game was fascinating. The New England Patriots played against the New York Giants. the patriots havn't lost one game during the whole season. The Giants won the game by a touchdown 35 sec before the end (about two minutes before the patriots made a touchdown and it looked like they were wining).
Monday: As we had no school on monday i went up to schweitzer with jeni. We both tried snowboarding. So we took a lesson. At the beginning it was really hard - probably our instructor wasn't the best - but later it was really good.
Later on we went to granny and pop-pop (=Oma und Opa) for the birthday dinner of Jeralyn.
Unfortunately there was no call on this evening that there is no school the day after.
That was the first part of my review...second part coming soon!
