Ginger & André versus the OCD

Ginger & André versus the OCD

Well, I was going to write a post about fashion.  It’s really something over here.  You’ve heard of “The People of Wal-Mart,” right?  Well, it’s nothing like that!  Whew!  They dress to the 9’s here!  Short skirts, long jackets, high heels and the like.  And the lace.  SOOO much lace!  My mother would be a … Continue reading »

The One With the Paperless Library

A little while back, we went sightseeing and checked out some of the bigger, tourist traps around here.  One of the big, fancy buildings we found was the library.  We looked at it from outside and said, “WOW!  They really take their libraries seriously here!”  I mean, it’s like seven stories!

The One With All The Food

The One With All The Food

It seems that most of the interest related to our moving to China was regarding the food.  People wanted to know if we’d be able to eat it, what it would be like, etc.  Some of our more experienced friends said that we’d have stomach issues, to put it kindly, and that since we’d also … Continue reading »

The One Where We Played Badminton

The One Where We Played Badminton

Well, it’s been a while since my last post.  Being jobless is not as relaxing as you might think.  Today starts three days of the Dragon Boat Festival here.  We’ve been told it’ll be a bit crazy and people will be mostly cranky…what a fun a holiday.  So we’ve decided to take a day and … Continue reading »
