  1. bday

    a continuing record of the passage of time, this is what 47 looks like, anyways, no rest for the weary, make up classes to teach on today and tomorrow...
  2. Halloween

    still getting use to sober Halloweens, did a spur of the moment really scary clown, the kids liked it, which is what matters most...
  3. wtf, why do I have to do this twice!

    Dear China, 4 am here, day after National Day and well, just couldn't sleep. the fireworks are over, though the smell still permeates the air as I smoke this 555 ciggie. its like this, I knew what I was getting into when I came here, I thought, but before I was in Chengdu, Sichuam province, pretty, happy, outgoing people made of a possibly unique population of various ethnic groups which came together to from their own. Jiangsu aint like that, here everybody is the same and in my city they...
  4. Dear dead dad

    Today is the 18th birthday you didn’t live to see, would’ve made you a ripe old age of 72, real up there age wise for the men in our fam as our history goes. Anyways, I’d like to say that I finally got it all worked out, you dont have to worry, I mean I am 46 now, but well, I don’t, but often when I do its because I remember something you said to me when you were alive. I just didn’t listen to at the time, but I did hear it and remember lots of it. You were so right about so much. I can...
  5. China update

    the entry stuff into China, banking stuff, getting internet, all that, its much harder now than it was 3 years ago, so much so that if I'd known it would be like this then I might not have come, but I'm dealing with it and I at least know one competent person here, my boss, I've always chose bosses more than jobs and its done me good here for sure, muddling through it all while taking on lots of classes is bit of a stress, but thankful I'm sober, couldn't do all this otherwise...
  6. buh bye

    first SFO then Wuhan, finally Shanghai, in the end had to get all the Visa stuff done myself, you want something done right? you gotta do it yourself...
  7. GoT, ranking the seasons

    #1 Season 6, the best battle sequence “Battle of the Bastards” Hodor saving the day, revenge on the Freys, the Sept blowing up, the Snake Sisters, lots of Melisandre, verbal sparring/friendship between Tyrion and Varys, oh and one of my fave actresses was in it for a bit, Essie Davis #2. Season 3, The Red Wedding(thankfully, I knew about it from reading the books years earlier, otherwise I might have had an aneurysm, but it was brilliantly done) Dany getting the Unsullied, The whole Ramsay...
  8. cold turkey

    so I did the step down thing to the 3 mg ones for the last few weeks, but they ran out Friday, so now its no nicotine at all, and since I gave up the clove ciggies before even that, my head just hurts now all the time, everything is annoying, getting off these things should be easier than cigs, much less nicotine in them, but I think that since so much makes it into the blood stream, as opposed to when I smoke a clove like I use to, that these withdrawals are really off of more nicotine,...
  9. WARNING: GoT SPOILERS

    Well, this one was horrifying but brilliant, which is perfect, power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely, no matter the person and in Dany’s case genetics and environment predetermined her descent to evil. Her father was the Mad King, an inbred tyrant, she was raised by her witless, cruel brother, then she went from one terrible situation to another, filled with masses of murder and betrayal. Of course, she did the wrong thing at KIng’s Landing, the surprise is not that it...
  10. 51 years ago

    From remembered stories told to me by my father and the internet, I’ve been able to piece together that he served in the 2nd Battalion, 4th Marines or the “The Magnificent Bastards” as they’ve been called since fighting valiantly on against all odds at Corregidor in WW2 versus the Japanese. Thereby allowing MacArthur to escape on a PT boat, though he did eventually return, but I digress, my dad didn’t fight in that war, but a later one, not one we think so fondly of, there were no...
  11. going backwards

    Ok, this is not good, but I know why, still drinking soda like every other day though I know its poison and some stress eating as I await this visa nightmare to end. Also, a year ago? would've been ecstatic to be at 200...
  12. Rest In Peace Red Woman (spoilers)

    I knew ppl were gonna die, but did they have to kill the hottest woman on the show? whatever, guess with the Night King killed she had no part in the much less consequential battle for the Iron Throne, which to tbh? I care far less about, obviously I wanna see Cersei defeated, but the last 3 episodes are a bit anti-climatic for me...
  13. this site is a place where anything goes, but bookface is a different fish

    banned for the 3 days for posting this a few days ago, was informed of the sentence today I'm absolutely certain this was done without any idiot at their organization reading the post, they just saw a klansmen and boom, banned this has happened before, I once made a post about how college athletes are basically treated like slaves because none of them make any money and universities make billions off of them here in the USA, but I included and image of a slavery era plantation, and boom,...
  14. slow and steady wins the race

    180 something is what I'm shooting for, but it is getting harder and I know that when I get back to China all the street food is going to call to me, but I'll face that struggle when it comes...
  15. I know its just a number

    but I must feel a bit like Chuck Yeager did when he broke the sound barrier :cool: been decades since I've been under 200 pounds and to do it while under the stress of interviewing and now all the shit that goes with getting a work visa to china? remarkable I'd say, what's so different from all the times before is knowing myself so well, the part of me that wants to overeat, spend money on shit I don't need, argue with my asshole relatives, drink or whatever, he's just not as smart as I...
