    now that the holidays are here,it's time to decorate the house. every year,we always go all out.we buy a christmas tree and the kids decorate it with ornaments that we've bought and made over the years,and with silver and gold tinsel.we also hang a wreath on our front door and i make sure that there's mistletoe above every door.around the chimney,we hang our stocking ,and when we get holiday cards from our friends and neighbors ,we put then all around the room.
    outside of the house ,we have lawn ornaments that we put it in the front yard.people who visit our house will see snowmen ,reindeer,and of course,santa claus. the best part is the outdoor lights.i string them across the front of the house ,around our trees,and in our fence .when i turn them all on ,you can probably se our house from miles away.it's no wonder that people come from all over town just to see our house at night. i have to say that i enjoy the holiday seasons as much as the kids..and maybe just a little more.

    i don't know. i guess i'm feeling a little homesick.
    i thought you got over that. i know the adjustment was hard when first got here,but i thought you were coping pretty well.
    i was. it's just that the holidays are coming up and i won't be able to go home because i can't afford the airfare. i'm just longing for some of the comforts of home, like my mom's cooking and being around my family.
    yeah,it can get pretty lonely over the holidays.when i first got here,i'd get depressed and nostalgic for anything that reminded me of home. but ,you know,i think i was just seeing things through rose-colored glasses.
    what do you mean?
    well ,things back home weren't really that idyllic,but from this distance,all i could think of was the good stuff and none of the bad.

    my boss asked me to come up with some holiday promotion ideas so that we can make inroads into the gift-buying market.for us to stay cometitive,our company has to increase retail sales for this important sales cycle. my boss is expecting some innovative ideas from me.
    since we're an online business and not a brick-and-mortar store,we can't just put signs in the window or do other types of traditional advertising.lucky for us,though consumers are increasingly computer savvy and are more likely than ever to buy online.that's something we want to capitalize on.
    like other companies,we're willing to slash prices to attract holiday shoppers.we have a large inventory and we don't have to worry about running out of stock.the trick is how do we increase sales without resorting to gimmicks? dressing up salespeople to look like santa claus may work for some business but not ours.
    i'm just hoping that i can come up with some fresh ideas to jump-start this sales season.i know that my boss is counting on me.

    i have been suffering from back pain for years. i've tried several treatments prescribed by my doctor,but nothing has had a lasting effect. i finally decided to try alternative medicine.
    my friend ,amelia,swore by acupuncture.she said that her knee pain went away after only a few weeks of therapy. she was skeptical when she first started,but she knew after only a few sessions that it was working for her and that this was no new age nonsense. she thought it might work for me,too.
    my co-worker,ray ,suggested that i try some home pathic treatments .he said that taking herbal supplements that are all natural has helped him recover after complementary to the traditional medication his doctor gave him. he said that even though the herbs he takes haven't undergone clinical trials ,his own experience told him that they work.
    i'm a little nervous about trying these unorthodox treatments ,but after hearing about amelia's and ray's experiences ,i'm willing to give them a try. nothing has worked so far, so waht do i have to lose?

    no ,not at all,i think about her all the time. it's not that there aren't temptations,but i'm committed to diana.
    don't you get the same vibe from her?
    sometimes i do,but a lot of times i don't. it's so easy to get into a fight on the phone. we have misunderstandings all the time or i hurt her feelings without realizing it. and plus,i'm still in school and she's already out working, and it seems like we're growing apart.

    i was in a department meeting and our manager was asking for our feedback on improving our product. i had a few idears and i wanted to get them across,but one of my colleagues was giving me a hard time.
    in my opinion,i think that we need to looke at question more from the customer's perspective. i really we need to do more market research.
    i tend to think that we have enough information already and it's time to make some decisions.
    well ,the way i see it, we've only scratched the surface in getting to know our customers. we need to get inside their heads if we want to offer what they want and aren't getting right now.
    you may be right, but if you ask me, i just don't think it's worth it to sink more time and money into the type of market research you're proposing. it's far more than what other companies are doing.
    that's precisely my point. i'm sure that if we can get information that other companies don't have ,we'll be one step ahead.
    that's when the manager stepeed in and offered her opinion. and ,i'm happy to say, she sided with me.

    a friend from work, nia ,asked a few of us over to her apartment to watch the game this sunday and i was really nervous. i've always liked nia and i was hoping we could be more than friends. my brother,charlie,said that if i really like her,i should be sure to give her plenty of compliments when i saw her.

    i arrived on sunday and knocked on her door.

    hi ,i'm glad you could make it. you're the first one here. make yourself comfortable.

    thanks and you look great. red looks great on you.

    oh, thanks,it's nice to be out of work clothes. can i get you something to drink?

    sure ,what are you having?

    i'm just having a beer.want one?

    sure.what a cool place. this is a really nice apartment.

    hey,henry.you look busy,what's that you are reading?
    oh,hi,jane. i'm studying the driver's manual so i can finally get my driver's license. i just hope i can remmember all these traffic laws.
    i'm sure you'll pass the tests with flying colors,especially since you can miss a few and still pass.just don't forget to bring your glasses with you so you don't fail the vision test.
    yeah,i know. i think the written test will be okay,but i'm really worried about the road test. i never took driver's ed and i'm nervous behind the wheel.my brother failed his test the first time because he forgot to signal a left turn,and then he didn't yield to a pedestrian. he also screwed up on the parallel parking.
    it sounds like he just got nervous. a busy intersection is always tricky. so when's your appointment at the dmv?
    next tuesday. but i might just go in earlier and take the test as a walkin.
    can't wait? well, i'll let you get back to studing. good luck.
    thanks. see you around.

    hello, portland airport,lost and found.
    hello, i was a passenger on a suncal airlines flight yesterday and i think i left my keys on the plane.
    i see. to claim the item, you have to fill out a claim form. what did you lose again?some luggage? you'll need your claim receipt to get your luggage.
    no ,i lost some keys on the airplane. keys. i think i left them on my seat. is it possible to find out if anyone has turned them in to your office?
    i don't know. can you describe them?
    well ,they're on a key chain and there are eight keys on it, including a car key.
    was there anything distinctive about the key chain? you'll need to prove ownership if you want to claim them.
    no ,it's a plain key ring. maybe i should come down to the office to see if i can identify them. what happens to property that's unclaimed?
    we keep it for 30 days and then we dispose of it. don't worry. we don't have a policy of finders,keepers. if you lost some luggage,it'll turn up.
    no ,i lost some keys .keys.never mind. i'm coming down right now.
    that's a good idea. it's easier to pick up your lost luggage than for us to send it.

    i think that,in principle,it's a good idea.it would save us a lot of money,but i see a downside. we would lose control of some of our key in house operations.
    well ,i think that we want to focus on non-core operations ,such as IT or accounting. i know that other companies have outsourced their call centers, but that would take a lot of training ,especially with our call volume.
    i completely agree. i don't think that the call center needs to be micro-managed,but it does take more oversight than IT or accounting for quality control,especially if we decide to go offshore.
    ok, i think we're thinking along the same lines. let's call a meeting with the rest of the staff to get their thoughts. how about next tuesday at 10am?
    that works for me. i'll send out an email out to everybody today.

    it's been almost three months since i got a haircut and i went to the barbershop where i always get it cut. but when i got there,the barbershop had been replaced by a hair salon.
    hi,i used to get my hair cut at the barbershop that was here.
    yeah, they closed. we've been open for about a month. i can cut your hair.
    uh, i guess that's okay.
    why don't you come over here and sit down. what do you have in mind?
    well as you can see, my hair is pretty curly. when it's long ,it looks like an afro. i want it to be a lot shorter,but i don't want a buzz cut.
    are you sure you want to cut it? if you keep it long, you could have great dreadlocks.
    uh, i'm not sure that that style would work for me.
    okay, then. how about if i cut it short on the sides ,leave the bangs medium length, and then keep the back long?
    no ,i don't think that would work, either. i'd like it an inch off the collar in back, above the ears,no sideburns, with a part down the right side. i really need a trim.
    hmm..how about if i shave your head? you 'd look great bald.
    no ,i definitely don't want that. you know that, i just remembered that i'm supposed to be somewhere else right now.
    oh, are you sure? i'm sure i know exactly what you want.
    i'm sure you do , but i really have to go.
    i left that hair salon as quickly as i could. who knows what would have happened if i'd stayed there? she may have given me a mohawk.

    i went to the bike shop on saturday morning to buy a bicycle.
    what kind of bike are you looking for?
    i'm really not sure.
    well,let me show you what we have.we carry road bikes,mountain bikes,beach cruisers,and racing bikes.
    i'm going to start biking to work. i'll be riding mainly on the road,but i want something versatile enough for anything.
    well ,the road bike are for everyday use.they have heavy frames and tires.the seats are comfortable and so are the handlebars. the mountain bikes are very sturdy for off-road cycling and have wider tires. beach cruisers have just one speed,so you won't be shifting any gears.
    ok,are the brakes hard to handle?
    no. you either have foot brakes,like on the beach cruisers,or you have hand brakes. they're very easy to get used to.if you want to keep it simple,i would either go for a road bike or a mountain bike. those are the most popular.
    if i get a bike,waht other things do i need?
    i usually recommend an air pump,a bike lock,and a helmet.
    ok,i'll take a look around.
    sure ,just let me konw if you have other questions.

    our family decided to take a road tirp across the country this year. the kids were really excited and my oldest son wanted to help navigate. before the trip, we looked at the road maps and decided on our route and the points of interest we would try to see. since we wouldn't be taking a camper,we needed to make hotel reservations along the way. after a little planning, we were ready to go.
    the kids were behaving themselves the first day. my daughter was a little car sick in the morning, but we made it to our first stop without any major problems. on the second day ,though,the kids were acting up. they kept asking,are we there yet? and they wanted to stop at every rest stop. my youngest son,who is only four,kept calling out the mile markets as we passed them, and i thought my head would explode if he didn't stop. on top of that,my wife wanted to stop every few miles for a photo op and i thought we'd never get to the next town.
    by the third day ,i was really questioning the wisdom of taking three young children on the road for 10 days. i suspect that after this vacation, i'll need another one to recover from it.

    with our expansion into these new areas of business, i think we need to think seriously about changing our coporate image. we're much more than just a paper company now.

    i think you're right. our brand has changed, and if we want to keep brand loyally, we need to think protecting and improving our product image.

    i agree that that's a key issue as we reposition ourselves in the industry. we can never lose sight of our end-users.

    and ,even though we have registered trademarks on some of the new prestige products ,we need to have a plan if we want to turn these new products into household names.

    i suggest we think about hiring a public relations firm. they may be able to help us update our corporate image and logo, and to shape our new corporate identity.

    why don't i contact a few PR firms and set up some meetings?

    yes,do that. that seems like the logical next step.

    can i help you find something?

    yes ,i'm looking for some drees shoes for

    work, something with a low heel.

    have you tried this brand? they make really

    comfortable shoes. this company makes

    several styles of dress shoes, including a

    sandal, a low boot, and a loafer. these

    right here are open toe and thoseover there

    have a strap in the back.

    oh,i like these slip-ons, but they seem too

    narrow. my feet are pretty wide.

    those actually come in three widths.

    narrow, medium, and wide .do you want to

    try them on?

    sure. do you have them in a 6 and a half or

    a 7,in black or brown?

    i'm not sure. i'll have to check in the

    back... here you are. how does the 6and a

    half.

    they're a little too tight in the toe. let

    me try the 7. oh, that's better, but now

    the heel is a little too loose.

    keep in mind that since they're leather,

    they'll stretch a little.

    in that case, i'll take the black pair in

    the 6and a half.

    great.i can ring you up over here.

    i was supposed to meet jenny at the jiulongshujuerary,but i was late. jenny texted me :i m @lib where r u?

    i'm not very good at texting so i used a template to say . i was going to be late. when i arrived at the liberary, jenny laughed at me because she knew i didn't know how to text.

    i don't know how to use this thing. the phone kept making up words for me.

    that's because you were composing in predictive text mode. you have to change your setting to normal tap mode so only the characters you want show up in the screen.

    ok, but everything still shows up in capital letters.

    you can change the option by pressing the button. see? the screen will show you what kind of letters or numbers you can get, and you keep pushing the button until the one you want comes up.

    what about the symbol you used in your message?

    you press the 1 button or the 0button for those. i use them as abbreviations to save time when i am texting. i always use the symbols @ and & for at and and. simple words like you are and be can be spelled with the letters, u r and b it saved time.

    thanks .i think i've got it .but it'll take some practice for me to get up to speed.

    no problem. each time i get a strange message that doesn't make any sense, i'll know it's from you.

    it's been a long time since i've seen my friends steve and liz, and i thought this would be a good weekend to drive up to santa barbara to see them. gas prices have been through the roof, but i decided to take the short road trip anyway. before getting on the road, i went to the gas station to fill up my tank.

    i drove past the full-service pump and parked at the first self-sevice one. i got out of the car and saw that there was an out of order sign telling customers to pay inside. i wanted to pay at the pump so i got back into the car and pulled up to the next one.luckily for me, this one was working.

    i swiped my credit card and took the gas cap off .i pushed the button for the grade of unleaded gas i wanted and put the nozzle into my tank. there was a sign on the pump that read. do not top off .after the tank was full, i replaced the nozzle and pressed the button for a receipt. right when i was about to leave, i noticed that my windows were dirty, so i got the squeegee and some paper towels and cleaned them. now, i was ready for my drive up north.

    i was interested, but i wasn't sure if my voice was good enough to be the lead singer. after hearing me sing, michael said that he thought i was. with me in the band, we still neeeded a drummer and a bass player. my sister wanted to be a back-up singer for the band, but we didn't think we needed one yet.

    we auditioned a lot of people and found our other two band members. they had their own instruments and even had the sound equipment we'd need. we start rehearsal next week. hopefully, we'll be able to get a demo made soon and get hired as an opening act for another band. and ,who knows? you may be seeing us as headliners in your city before too long.

    about a year ago, i came up with an idea that i thought would revolutionize the way people sell their goods on the internet. after a lot of planning ,i decide to try to attract investors by developing a business plan. i got some advice from my friends steve who is a very successful entrepreneur.

    first, he told me i needed to figure out my business model. how would my investors make money? how long would it take for the company to be in the black? steve said that the proposal would need to show revenue projections for the first five years, and that i should give an estimate of gross sales for that same period.

    steve also said that i should include what i thought was the target market for the new service and my plan for convincing potential buyers that the new service would give them a competitive advantage.

    after working on the plan for a few months, i thought it was ready to show to some prospective investors. all i need is just one big investor to take a chance on it. hopefully, this time next year, i'll be well on my way to building a new business empire.

    on saturday morning, we drove down to the theme park. we parked and took a shuttle to the park entrance. we looked at the ticket prices and decided to buy a day pass for each of us. maria, the younger of the two kids, is only 2-years-old, and children under three get in free.

    the first thing we did was stand in line for the biggest attraction in the park, a really big roller coaster. actually, only grace and i stood in line since maria was too young to ride it. my brother and my sister in law took maria to ride the ferris wheel and carousel, and afterwards ,we planned to meet near the concession stands so we could watch the parade at 2o'clock. grace and i finally made it to the head of the line and we got on the ride. i really don't like roller coasters. when we got off, i felt queasy and had to sit down for a few minutes before i could walk again.

    all in all ,we had a good day at the amusement park. but ,it will be long time before i go on a roller coaster again.

    that's it for now. there are a few other things we need to order, but i still need to submit for a purchase order. can you fax over an invoice for the items i just ordered?

    sure. i'll get that to you by the end of the day. we appreciate your order.

    no problem. thanks.

    thanks for getting mine, too. when is the drawing?

    saturday at 6pm. it's being televised on channel4

    what would you do if you had $168million dollars?

    the first thing i would do is quit my job. no more slaving away for me. what would you do?

    if i were rich, i would travel around the world. if i were younger, i'd learn how to fly a plane. i've always wanted to do that.

    it's never too late. you could still do that.

    you can't teach an old dog new tricks. i'd probably just retire and buy myself a nice new house.

    yeah, that sounds nice. i suppose i'd have a lot of family and friends asking for money.

    i know i would. i can just see them coming out of the woodwork and pestering me. maybe winning the lottery isn't such a good thing.

    you're right. it's a curse. when you win, you can give me all of the money.

    right, don't hold your breath.

    i was at the airport to pick up my friend sandra, who was visiting from italy.

    do you have everything?

    yes, i think so. but , i don't have any us dollars. where can i change money? can i do that here?

    you could, but i wouldn't recommend it. the exchange rate is really high and so are the fees. i'll take you to the bank tomorrow.

    the next day, i picked sandra up from her hotel and we went to a branch nearby.

    what can i do for you?

    i'd like to exchange some currency and to get some u.s dollars.

    ok, how much would you like?

    how much is one euro worth?

    the current rate is one dollar to .8 euros

    in that case, i'd like 500 u.s dollars.

    ok, that will be 400 euros. would you like that in large or small bills?

    i'd like a mix of both. i'd like some change, too.

    that's no problem. please sign here. that will be 300 dollars in 20's, 150 dollars in 10's and 45 dollars in fives and ones. and ,here's five dollars in change quarters, dimes, and nickels.

    that's perfect. thanks a lot.

    is there anything else i can help you with?

    no ,that's all. thanks for your help.

    it's my pleasure. have a nice day.
