Initial thoughts —
Reading is lovely
Typing is not
Fingers seem very grubby? Lol
I will probably blog more regularly now
Some miscellaneous thoughts —
So much food bliss from the home-cooked dishes I only get to eat once or twice a year — 煎饼，红烧排骨，芝麻汤圆，饺子，葱油饼，年糕，等等 …
Also, I am tech support slave for about 10 days, ushering the older generation into a default state of dependence on electronics and the web. Which of course has its perks, e.g. redeeming the considerable credit card rewards that parents have accumulated over the past few years…Yes, I really think we should use some of those points on this gift card, ooh and this one too!
Post-Christmas shopping tradition continues. The one pair of boots left in my size. The lone pair of Levi’s that was cut for a small Asian. The only messenger bag someone had just returned. Lots of luck this year! :3
Catch a throat cold because Seattle is much colder than I remember. Lie in bed for two days and just read. Get woefully obsessed with Laini Taylor’s “Daughter of Smoke and Bone” series. Finds out third book isn’t coming out until 2014, cries.
Gift shopping hits an all-time high this year…part of adulthood, I think? It feels nice to give.
Been very neutral about Apple products, and even mildly repulsed by the rabid demand and cult devotion…but after spending some time with mom’s new iPad, it’s a little bit like ooooh app store…so shiny…so many apps…Angry Birds Space!…here, just take my monies. Eh, go figure. They know what they’re doing.
Excited for 2013. Should aim for a higher percentage of new year’s resolutions completion. Off to write some, in this optimistically naive and idealistic time of year :)
