So 春节快乐，everyone! Hope this Horse of a year will be one full of oats and kick, and may our manure help the crops grow sturdy and tall!
At least it shold be temporary, and admittedly hasn't been very hard.
Mostly she was surprised that Canadians were so... polite! Everyone saying Hello, and How's It Going? and Thanks, and Come Again, and drivers all like stopping for pedestrians to cross the road, and letting other cars get into the lane ahead of them. That's all pretty crazy, yo.
Frankly, she thought Canada would be more different from CN than it actually is.
She actually liked Calgary better than Van, partly because of the above, but also 'cause in Calgary it's actually easier to shoot the breeze with random strangers than in Van. And she thinks Van and BJ aren't all that different.
Yoyo was also shocked at how many homeless people there were in Vancouver, in the "best city to live in" in the WORLD.
Upon arriving in Canada she asks, "Why are all the buildings so small?"
X-C skiing :(
eat turkey :)
sledding :) *what's up w/ all these f'ing old people on the hill???
make a snowman :)
drink egg nog :)
BTW, Canada was super fun. Got to see almost (but not quite) all of the folks I thought i'd get to see. Yoyo got to do a bunch of Canada winter stuff she'd never done before. Like...
Should be pretty fun. You know. Drinking expensive baijiu (which still tastes less-than-pleasant), over eating, and watching the CCTV Spring Fest Gala tv show. Maybe playing basketball with Yoyo's dad. Hopefully finding time out to have a toke somewhere.
Hey gang!Just wanted to say hi before I run off for Chinese New Year/Spring Fest over at the in-laws! Yoyo and her parents are already over there, tapping their toes for my imminent arrival.
Since getting bk to BJ, Yoyo's been feeling rather uninspired to do anything, and that's been challenging, but for now she's feeling better over at her parents. Hopefully things go well when we get bk to BJ, also planning our wedding and all that sort of fun stressy stuff. haven't got a clue how things'll pan out, but I for one plan to have some fun...And work's been pretty lame since i got back. W/out going into details, i've been writing tons of stories for our new website china.com (which we bought for ELEVEN MILLION DOLLARS... and they can't find money for a CF card reader?) about places i've never gone, and foods i've never ate. That's pretty lameorific.
