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. That's a much better choice.
And in other news they've cut off our water without warning again. This place is bloody ridiculous. There's never any warning when they cut the water or power. Every other place I've lived in has managed to warn people when they know they'll have to turn the water or power off, but not here. The water came back on for a couple of minutes about ten minutes ago, but at a very, very low pressure, and it's off again now.
