So I am curled up in bed as I type this and am amazed at how fast time has been going by.
Due to not having internet over the weekend at my place I didn't get to update about the will versus going to question. I hope no one died in the suspense of the moment. So here are the rules (according to the English book at my school):
You say "going to" when you are talking about something that you planned before you began speaking. For example, This summer I am going to eat a lot of Kit Kats for Dan since he has none in Chile.
You can use either "will" or "going to" to tell about predictions of the future. For example:
Dan is going to get some Kit Kats in the mail. OR Dan will get some Kit Kats in the mail.

It was good to catch up with them over what has been happening and to just laugh about all of our adventures here. I also learned a new phrase that they (and I now too) use to describe the craziness and almost unbelievable situations we have found ourselves in: motorboat crazy. Here was some of the Pizza Hut goodness:
