My wife Jenny and son Tony will be at the bus station in Wuxi about four o'clock tomorrow afternoon.
Diarrhea and Vomit
Tony has been experiencing these noxious phenomenon. But I will be happy to see him tomorrow, irregardless.
I did a conversation class about superstitions yesterday and learned of few Chinese ones.
You can't bring an umbrella to a wedding, the students told me, because the character for divorce resembles a umbrella.
As well, a couple shouldn't eat a peach (or is it a pear) together because the p word sounds a lot like the d word.
It is bad luck to kill or evict a snake that has entered your house.
Podcasts or DVDs?
That is another question of little importance but satisfying a personal content requirement. With the wife and son coming tomorrow, I will lose access to the television and DVD player. So you would think I would spend my final hours of aloneness watching as many as DVDs as I could. I would have but I have come upon a new podcast worth listening to. I have downloaded fifteen episodes of the show and put them on a flash drive which in turn I have put in my large screen television so I can listen to them sitting on the couch.
What podcast am I talking about? I will tell you in my next Quotes and Links entry which is currently in the works.
Is the apartment clean?
Not having to be at work today till one p.m., I have been able to do some cleaning. Probably not enough to satisfy the wife, but I can say, with certainty, that I am no slob. I have seen slobs that they have an absolute neglect of organization and cleanliness that boggles my mind.
