That's Chinese for, "How are you?" (They said to choose a unique topic title..)

Some of my favorite authors/titles:

James Michener, Chesapeake
Mark Twain, On the Damned Human Race, A Connecticut Yankee...
Miguel Cervantes, Don Quixote
Daniel Tammet, Born On A Blue Day
Anne Fadiman, The Spirit Catches You and You Fall Down
Spycatcher
Stephen King, The Shining, Misery
...and many others....

Some of my favorite quotes:

'I don't do drugs. My dreams are frightening enough.' - M. C. Escher
'Alright then, I'll go to hell.' - Mark Twain
'Was this trip really necessary?' - Bugs Bunny
'The civility of one race will never be perfect while another is degraded.'
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

Hi there! Welcome to the forums :)

I also like Misery, probably my favorite Stephen King book. I don't read a whole lot of horror, so I'm not particularly well-versed, but Misery freaked me out.

Cheers,
Alyson

If you like Cervantes you're alright in my book. I stayed next to a Cervantes institute in Berlin one year, but not speaking Spanish I never did drop in for a visit.

Must say I expected a spam thread after seeing your thread title, but that's my bad because it was only a few months ago when a friend taught me this Chinese phrase.
