Still Venturing...

I apologize for those of you who have said "More info please, more posts!" Sometimes I turn into a slug and don't feel like blogging. Or maybe because I don't feel like I have a good enough story to tell.

You know something funny about Shanghai...people wear pajamas out and about. I'm not talking some sweats and an old t-shirt. Like these are the flannels I got for Christmas kind of jammies.
I had to steal this picture from the internet because I'm not shameless (or quick) enough to get one myself. It looks as if this guy is thinking to himself "Did I forget something today?" But actually if you asked him he would say "No, it's cool, I wear these out all the time."

Because of the Expo, the government has been working very hard to stop people from wearing their pajamas, so it's not as prevalent in the main part of the city. It ceases to amuse me every time I see it. Here is a good article I found about it, which also made me crack up (I'm not sure why)...stop wearing pajamas out!

As I am writing this, I am itching like crazy. I think I have 6 new ones since I started this post. The mosquitoes have been eating us alive.

Another thing I love it this...
Bikes actually get their own turn light. I pretty much almost get hit by a bike everyday.

We found a rock climbing gym...

I actually have a rope growing out of my head:
This guy was amazing. This climb went up the wall and across the ceiling- do you have any idea how difficult it is to climb like that?
Meet "Kevin". He taught us that we all have the power inside of us to do any climb, we just have to learn how to use it. He moved across the wall like butter in a frying pan- so smooth. He was also way stoked to do the Eye of the Tiger with Taylor.

Taylor bought all seven seasons of Star Trek: The Next Generation. No. Joke. The evenings have been filled with Klingons, Ferangis, Warp Speed, and Photon Torpedoes.
Favorite quotes thus far:

Dr. Crusher: "Damn. Where are the callouses we doctors are supposed to grow over our feelings?"
Capt. Picard: "Perhaps the good ones never get them."

Lt. Yar:"What I want now is gentleness, and joy, and love. ..
From you Data, you are fully functional, aren't you ?"

Data: "Of course, but .."
Lt. Yar: "How fully ?"
Data: "In every way of course. I am programmed in multiple techiques. A broad variety of pleasuring."
Lt. Yar: "Oh, you jewel, that's exactly what I hoped."

Bedtime, Engage.


  1. I understand completely that feeling of not wanting to blog but not having a good reason. I keep busy by watching Extreme Makeover Home Edition reruns online. :)

  2. The pajama people make my heart sing. And Tron and I are crazy jealous of the star trek business
