+ Lìngrén Jingyì Shiny: The Fireflyverse becomes a reality, as elementary classrooms in the U.S. start having the Chinese language taught to them. In short, the Foreign Relations Committee are considering a proposal to allocate $1.3 billion to boost Chinese language and culture classes in U.S. public schools. This is, by all means, absolutely brilliant and exciting! But, how come this wasn't around when I was in elementary school?! Of course, I understand the importance because of China continually a rising powerful empire --- let's just hope that there won't be any Alliance created, with a company entitled Blue Sun (but knowing our government and the people running it, there's a 50/50 chance it might happen, which is definitely not comforting). But this is extremely amazing that our country is becoming more bilingual! So very shiny.
+ Gorram Shiny!: The UK Serenity DVD cover. Jealousy? Me? Absolutely! Much better than our llamafied version, but I'm still giddy for all my friends over in the UK and in Australia that get this gorgeous coverart of the Big Damn Movie. SHINY COVER, OMG! *whimps in jealousy*
