Ladies and Gentlemen/guys and girls

If you think you would find interesting to try talking on Skype with Ivan (which is me) let me know (you can PM me).
I, as you will have guessed by my name, am Russian. My English is not that bad that you would have difficulty understanding me. Well, open for your suggestions as well.

One more question.

This week - does it mean every day of the week or not every day?

If a student asks the teacher

Are we having a lesson tomorrow?

Does it mean that the lesson hasn't been firmly fixed for tomorrow? Isn't it like "Are we going to have a lesson tomorrow? It hasn't been fixed for tomorrow but we can conduct one"

But

Do we have a lesson tomorrow?
Means "Is there a lesson scheduled for tomorrow?"

Do I see it correctly?

Thar, if you come up with anything the like, I will be glad.

Helenej, it was clear from the start that I meant DUMP. Was it worthy of talking about? I don't think so. The issue is about a different point.

Thar, could you give some examples similar to "TONIGHT WE PARTY! TOMORROW WE GO TO WORK!"? Is it the only example possible?

What is the purpose of asking such a question? I could explain it to you but it's veering off the topic. It's not the real point of the issue. If you understand the problem then provide the right examples which would work.

Thar thank you for elaborating.

It's not that I strive to use Present Simple at any cost. It's just that I come across some really existing phrases like "Tonight we party! Tomorrow we go to work" and I want to know when I could use it or something alike. I understand that you don't have any reservations as for the correctness of: Tonight we party! Tomorrow we go to work.

Let's take these two.

1 Tonight we party! Tomorrow we go to work.
2 Tonight I talk to Marry! Tomorrow she bumps me!

The first one works the second doesn't. I don't understand why.
Any insight on that? Or maybe you could make something similar which would work. I find it hard to believe that there is the only one sentence which sounds correct (I mean sentence 1)

What does BEING ANGRY have to do with "Now I call David"?
