WOW: The Bunny got things straightened out, but RL conspired to keep me from getting any time in on WOW. I probably could have coaxed out a few hours, but wanted to wait to see what patch day will bring to us. At the very least, why burn LFR runs when I hope that we'll get the new loot system! Ah, well, for moments like that, there is always Skyrim to fall back on.
RL: She gets to celebrate her birthday twice, once on the solar calendar and once on the traditional calendar. Her birthday on the traditional, lunar calendar falls on the Chinese equivalent of Valentine's Day, which was last week. Sorry BigD, there was cavorting and now you have bad weather.
We had a late lunch at a Korean BBQ, did a bit of shopping and missed dinner altogether because we were too full from lunch. Sunday, a colleague returned from summer break in Cambodia and several of us got together at the local XiBei (Northwestern Chinese) place for excessive amounts of skewered lamb at an outside table. Something in the air is setting my allergies off and that is making a mess of my sleep, but Monday started with a guy pounding on the door to deliver a commercial sized can of instant coffee -- vile stuff, but I drink it to stay awake rather than from any delusion that it tastes like coffee -- that Bun had ordered over the Internet for me. I gather that further gifts will probably arrive tomorrow, vitamins and ceramic cooking knives.
AH-CHOO!!! Hopefully the patch will go well for everyone and BigD will be spared the brunt of their latest storm! Good luck!
In Chinese: glasses are yanjing; eyes are yanjing, and the beer of Beijing is Yanjing. When speaking, the difference is in the tones. Did I just order a glass of beer or a glass of eyes?
