Thanksgiving Pictures

Amazingly, it has only taken me a week to put up the pictures I took on Dad's Thanksgiving visit. I NEED to post the damn Lanzhou pictures to complete my China triology!

"This month is National Eye Care month. Do yourself a favor and take this simple vision test. It's an early test for cataracts. It is simple to do and it's fun. Remember, cataracts know no age boundary; young and old can have this "preventable" eye disease. When you've finished, send this on to those you care about:

Too Weird

This is just too weird: "In a desperate appeal to China's fashionable youth, the Chinese Communist Party has approved the repackaging of Mao Tse-tung as a rap artist."

Interesting Article

From Yahoo:

"A female giant panda arrived in Tokyo from Mexico Wednesday in the latest phase of an international romance zoo keepers hope will lead to pregnancy..."

Sometimes I wish I could have a female airlifted to my apartment for mating purposes. Then again, I'm not on the endangered species list.

Artifact From China

While I was stranded in Beijing after missing my return flight to NYC, I had lunch at a Domino's near the place in which I stayed. The food tasted just about as shitty as here. The restaurant was almost empty even during lunch time. I heard that Pizza Hut is doing much better in China now.


Female friend: you're just like all the rest- and here i thought you were different LOL!
me: the penis is mightier than the brain

Office Tomfoolery

[I sneeze really loudly twice in a row]
girl next cubicle: bless you
me: thanks
girl: boogie
[I duck for cover and reach for kleenex to wipe my nose]
girl [laughing her ass off]: haha, just kidding
me: hey that's not funny!
[girl turns her head away and returns to her phone conversation]
[I crumble up some fresh kleenex sheets and hit her on the head with it]
girl [shocked]: hey! Did you just hit me with booger kleenex?
me: haha, just kidding
