New item on ThingsImWondering:

How to write the sound that scissors make in Chinese (something like "cuts cuts") in Chinese characters.

Vocab word for the week: 伺候, which means something like "to wait on; to serve" but when used as an adjective can be used to describe somebody who does nice things for other people (I think).

UPDATE: Somebody can be called 难伺候 if they are fastidious about, or set rigorous standards for, things done for them.

Hey, cool. Thanks Kevin.

Google says that it can also be 咔嚓, and it's also the sound of a camera snapping a picture. Neat.
