Beijing Red

Today I purchased a bottle of conditioner. The name of it is Beijing Red but it's actually yellow.

Anyway the reason I got it is because of the English writing on the bottle (and I was out of conditioner, too). This is what it says (spelling errors and everything):
It conrtains specific composition, can get rid of the remaining chemical matter which is dyed and p-ermed. It makes dyed hair soft and springy and gets permed hair shiny and lasting. It contains strong moist compostion, can avoid hair becoming dry, and get hair soft and maneagabie.

Then on the front it says:
It makes hair as sick

I can only assume they mean "silk".

Ah, Mongolia--the land of never-ending blog material.

The Dumbest Question Ever Asked

Today I was talking to a teenage girl who just found out she's pregnant. I have known this girl for about 2 years and she has always been very, um...ditzy, I guess would be the nicest way to put it.

Well, I hadn't seen her in a while so when I heard, through the grapevine, that she was pregnant I kinda expected to find her in a more mature or at least sobered state of mind. Instead she outwitted her previous ditzyness by asking me if it's ok to chew gum when your pregnant.

Now, I get asked tons of pregnancy-related questions and I have never come across this one. But I don't think it would have been so bad if she wouldn't have waited until the end of my long, serious-as-a-heart attack dialogue about her future and the option of not marrying the guy just to get out of being a single mom etc. It was when I asked, with a dour expression on my face, "Do you have any questions?" that she sprang it on me. I felt something like a panicky, chuckly sort of feeling welling up inside as it dawned on me that things were more serious than I had previously thought. They should make a pill for that kind of ignorance!

Just an update

So, the day after the MUIS seminar a girl from our UB church, Mandy, IM'd me and told me that a girl she had invited came to the seminar with her boyfriend. This girl was pregnant and she and her boyfriend were literally on their way to get an abortion when the Mandy invited them to sit in on the class. They immediately decided to keep the baby! WOO HOO!!!
