Back in Action

The echronicling shall once again commence. Now that they scooped the giant internet cable up from the bottom of the ocean and duct-taped it back together, internet seems to be running free of any serious earthquake related hitches.

Thanks a bundle for the continued reading and compliments, everyone. It really means something to me. I'll let you figure out what that something is.

The trip home was quite successful. One of my favorite things about family and friends is how easy it is to just jump right back in so easily. I was expecting to be bombarded with a barrage of questions about China. The ones that can't really be answered, like, "So how's China?" I'll answer it here, just so that it's consolidated: Not bad, how's America?

So I jumped right back in, e.g. Luke was making jokes and tormenting me not minutes after meeting at the airport (and vice versa), Mom and Dad we're being very parenty (*sigh* Damnit Buffy), which was great, Nicole and I went on a caper to acquire a Wii, and Rachel, Nicole and I had ridiculous fun flailing around like a bunch of fruitcakes, with constant grins plastered to our faces. Jess and I went to get coffee at Legal Grounds, and that was just like old times up in Boone. Good times.

I really was bummed that I couldn't make it out to Atlanta or Wilmington to see Justin and Ryan/Laura respectively. It was just such a short, action-packed visit that I couldn't seem make that drive work, partially because of having a somewhat more abbreviated stay due to the fact that Pa and I went to Hong Kong during that time.

There were so many other people I wanted to see, though. I feel bad that I couldn't see all of them. Maybe I can make an informal and extremely early invite to some sort of "party" or "hootenany" when I come back in July. I think that might make a guy like me happy. But everyone is so freaking busy. Damn you, life!

So... not much else to say right now. The Hong Kong journey will be documented once I get my brain wrapped around the fact that I hav... er... get to teach this week. So, you can go back to reading my typings if you want...

I'll just be waiting here...

Whoa...

Um... also, the Wii isn't in action yet. I can't update the Wii because my internet is tooooo slow. But! I've been promised faster connections as a condition for staying.

Rock on!

You know, you would be able to see anyone you wanted, nearly anytime, if you lived here in the states. Thats about as high speed a form of communication as you can get. Face to face that is. But you know, whatever. This is just to make you feel bad.

Normally I'd think that was Luke that left the last comment, but he capitalized the beginning of every sentence.

Who could it have been?
