Last night I discovered a new game, Mahjong. Not the solitaire version, but the real deal. It is pretty fun, I highly recommend it if you can figure out how to play. I played with Ling Ling and her husband Li, you might know Ling Ling of sweater thursday fame and other such posts. I went over for dinner last night and we started to play mahjong after eating black eggs, wonton soup, rice soup, lamb etc. I now know the characters for 1-4, 8, and 9, the other ones are a little fuzzy. I won a couple of times, apparently with some good points. I think it may have been beginner's luck. I have been invited to play again, but I want to learn how to mumble explicatives in chinese under my breath, so it can be more authentic. They wouldn't teach me how to say your father is a bastard, but I am sure I can figure it out.
