How to ship boxes from China to the US

This is incidentally also “Countdown once again – 2 Days.” So we had originally been planning to take all our stuff with us on this move back. When we first made the move over some year and a half ago, we managed to fit into 8 suitcases, including carry-ons. We had a little trouble with […]

Countdown once again – 4 Days

It’s that time of year again, or rather that time of the year and a half. We are counting down the days until we leave. I guess we hadn’t formally announced any such things yet, and though the rest of the inter-webs know already, the blog is sadly still officially ignorant of certain important matters. […]

Updating on the train

Huh, apparently I have 4 WordPress Plugins to update, plus a new Core version to upgrade to. Since I’m connected to the internet through my cell phone’s tether through my VPN in the States, I’m thinking I’m gonna hold off on any major internet work that’s actually important and meaningful until later. I’ll be back […]

IFC Messiah Concert 2010

And just to plug me and myself and those that I sing with, the annual International Festival Chorus Handel’s Messiah Concert is coming to town. December 5th, Sunday, 2010, at the International School of Beijing way the heck out in Shunyi. Free transportation is provided on the day of the concert to and from, leaving […]

Looking for a new project

I think I need someone to count on me again. While Maria was away, there was purpose in the music project I recorded for her, something she waited for, something I knew she’d be disappointed if I didn’t do. It was important, though only because I deemed it so. And though now I have lots […]

Multiple places to write now

So I’m sure some one may have noticed, but I actually switched to the AJAX only version of the theme, which is definitely in BETA status at the moment as it can’t process any WordPress short tags and hasn’t yet figured out when someone is logged in or not. Nevertheless, I sort of figured if […]

Actual Post and Updates

Again, it’s been a while since posting, almost 2 weeks, mostly due to how busy we’ve been with Maria’s MBA program starting up properly and falling into the routine of it all. I don’t think there’s actually much new to post about, so I think this post will mostly be me complaining about a plethora […]

Very sick…

So it’s been like, over a week. Maria and I are both sick. We think it happened because of all the MBA people she was interacting with. The theory goes, we have close to 100 people, coming from different and perhaps, weird, countries, flying long distances on planes with perhaps even, weirder, people, all being […]

As Promised…

Nothing too much to write, mostly because I’m sick and quite tired, and it’s a little warm but I’m having temperature issues so I don’t want to turn the AC on. We’re both sick actually, got sick a the same time, and seem to be progressing through the symptoms at roughly the same pace as […]

Updating in Spurts

So I figured I’d update some information about what’s been going on. But seeing as I’m not sure all I want to say, and don’t quite feel like sitting on WordPress for a great length of time, I’m going to write this off line, update as I feel, and when it’s “done” (however I’d realize […]

Generic Style Updates

I haven’t done proper non-project specific updates in a while, so I thought I’d go into it a bit. 1) I repaired my bike today. I hadn’t ridden it for close to a month, and it’s been raining, then hot, then humid, so it was in very, very poor condition. I had to get one […]
