Good to know!

I talked to my friend Davidico for about five minutes, and learned a bunch of vocab!

  • 老样子 “same ol’ same ol’.”
  • “Grading papers” is 批改, though non-Americans will say “marking papers.”
  • “To vote” is 投票。
  • The word “binders” as in “binders full of women” is “活页夹.”
  • “雇佣“ to hire.
  • Tacky,” is 俗气.

Also, this is probably my favorite thing to come out of the debate last night, because it was a crazy-people crazy pivot.  Or wait, maybe this was my favorite thing.  Ok, this was funny too.
