Happy Birthday Mr Gregorybear

Well here it is… That time of year again. No, not “the time of year when you actually post something?”, smartasses… But the time to reflect on my life as I become a year closer to becoming an old man.
And 34? Geez… 33 was ok, but to say “Thirty Four” out loud, really does sound old.
Anyway… I was sitting on the sand today, and thought about what has happened in the last year. Last year at this time I was preparing to live alone for the first time in my life. And it turns out I’m not as much of a slob as I figured I was. Women really do have SO MUCH CRAP that finds it’s way onto every flat surface of one’s living space.
I rediscovered my love of falling asleep to music – something I haven’t done since I was 18. (And blasting music on my iPod to drown out the sound of a snoring cabin mate certainly doesn’t count!)
The last twelve months have also allowed me to make decisions about my life without needing to incorporate someone else into the equation. For the first time, I decided to do things 100% for me.

As I stare at the ever more defined crow’s feet tucked into the corners of my eyes, I think about what my biggest fear in life is – and it’s not spiders – that’s number 2.

Happy New Year!

Well the Lunar New Year is upon us, and as expected, fireworks have been exploding since the wee hours and will continue for the next two weeks.

Dave and I picked up a ton of fireworks in preparation for the celebrations (15 bucks for what would cost a couple hundred back home), and David, Anny and Bella joined us in the courtyard of my apartment to set them all off.

What did I learn last night? Dave’s jacket is fire retardant. Those 12 big ones set off car alarms. And it sucks when they don’t go up high enough and come back down to head height and then explode. Accidentally placing a multiball shooter upside down is a great way to start fires. Screaming and frantically jumping up and down on said fires is a great way to put them out.

That said, it was a really fun time. Even with the bitter cold, smiles and laughter were constant throughout. And we’ll do it all again next week!


And yes, I’ve noticed it’s been a year since I wrote anything. I’ve led an extraordinarily boring 12 months. Things’ll change shortly, I promise. 35 more days!



Ultra Sneaky Way to Call Home For Free

When you’re not busy eating exotic treats, exploring or mixing it up with the locals, it’s always a good idea to keep in touch with your friends and family back home. And if you’re on a shoestring budget, you’ve got to pinch those pennies harder than you pinched those nipples on that ladyboy in Thailand. (Don’t worry, your secret is safe with me.)

A Christmas Wish

As Christmas is almost upon us, I thought I’d share a bit of holiday cheer from China. Even though Christmas isn’t truly celebrated here, it’s nice to have these things to remind me of home :) Here’s a great 7-UP commercial. I’m sure you’ll enjoy it!

In 长春站—an underground market called “The Train Station Market”—this chef makes noodles by rolling the dough and then shredding it by hand. It’s a simple and mesmerizing way to make food.

And nobody notices. The Chinese walk past without so much as a glance; they’ve seen it before… probably at home.

But I notice. Not wanting to interrupt him, I snap this quick image, watch for a little while longer, and then melt back into the crowd.

Don't Pick Fights in China

On Sunday, about 10 minutes from my house, a 27 year old guy was backing up his car when he hit a 58 year old woman.  Instead of getting out to see if she was ok, he got out – exclaimed “I’m rich, so I could hit you as many times as I wanted.” And proceeded to start beating the poor old lady. “I can throw money at you to shut you up!” he continued to say as he smacked her around.
Unfortunately, a few other people around him didn’t agree with him and chased him back into his car. Standing around the car and preventing him to leave, word quickly spread about what a prick this guy was and within 15 minutes there was over 1000 angry Chinese people bashing the shit out of his car.
Who raises these kids?

It’s strange that in the land of the censored, cocks would run free. Some cocks are big while most cocks are smaller.
Some even let their cocks hang out while kids are around. This is one of the cocks that is commonly seen at a kinder school I teach in.
