45. Y-chan's Airplane / Masters

Seventh lesson was cancelled today because we had a special ceremony for one of our Year 5 students. Her drawing of a bird-like airplane won a prize in a JAL contest. Some representatives of the company came and spoke, and her drawing will be painted on one of JAL's upcoming 787s.

One of the Year 4s there asked me if I'd gotten a haircut - I said that I had, and added that I cut it myself. (I used the trimmer that I bought a little while ago. The results of my inexperienced and impatient handiwork were "short.") The student asked me why, and I told him it was because I couldn't afford a haircut - they're too expensive here. I quoted prices and made a gesture of clipping my own hair.

He looked at me quizzically and said, "You know, you are funny sometimes." He didn't mean the ha-ha kind.

Trevor Immelman has won the Masters. I got up at 4 this morning to catch some of it, but it was a rough go considering that we'd been partying all day Sunday.

Tiger was struggling with his putter, but he still managed a second-place finish. If it was any other golfer putting like he did, they probably wouldn't have even made the cut.

It'd be cool if a winner of the Par 3 Contest won the tournament. Then people wouldn't think it's "jinxed," and they might start trying to repeat the feat of winning both. I wonder who'll do it first, and when? We could be waiting a while...
