don't bother reading this

I have an irritating circadian rhythm. For some reason, the post-prandial dip, or whatever that feeling of drowsiness that generally hits you after lunch each day is supposed to be called, hits me at about 2 or 3 in the afternoon, an hour or two later...

holy shit

So it seems I'm being turfed out of one job and managing to walk straight into another. I'm not going into any details for a variety of reasons. Anyway, life is kinda scary at the moment. I have one more month on my residence permit, but I have a promise...

Kiwi Club and the Black Dragon Pool

So I've been offline for two straight days. That's most unusual for me. But there are reasons. Well, Friday was just an ordinary day with class in the morning as per usual and then a trip to the bank in the afternoon. I hate banks. But then Friday was...

early summer?

As if an unusually hot May Day weren't enough.... Honestly, May Day last year we went to Dalian for the week, and it was great, but in the mornings and evenings we wore jackets, which we carried with us everywhere during the daytime because the sea breeze...

I'm not the only one

[groan]

Another birthday. I'm 31 today. I've told lzh that she absolutely must not under any circumstances buy me a birthday cake. I can't stand Chinese birthday cakes, they're so sickly sweet. She's offered to buy me lunch at the Japanese restaurant in Beiyu....

kitset shantytown

Just across the road from our gate was a row of brick shacks. In the middle of the shacks was a shed my school used for storage- mostly unneeded desks and chairs, but also the occasional spare air conditioner or fridge, bits of old computer, and the school...

叔叔来了

My uncle visited on the weekend. Well, I've always had this kind of policy of using nicknames and initials to refer to other people on this blog. For example, instead of writing my wife's name, I just call her lzh. So in keeping with that, I'll just call...
