Chinese language update

It's not really a full update, because I'm busy getting ready for my trip to the US on Saturday! However, I'm proud to report that I'm still on track with my New Year's Resolution of studying everyday, even if it's just for 10 minutes.

So, I have to share a cool word I just learned. It's 臭美 (chòu měi). It means something like 'smug', 'conceited' or 'showing off your looks.' I'll never forget this word, because the characters literally mean―get this―"stinky beauty."

Isn't that awesome?
