i pretend to be able to speak chinese. people who don't know chinese believe me. people who do know chinese are generally too polite to tell anyone otherwise.

i genuinely think i'd be happier if i never had to use microsoft windows ever again.

my favorite fictional vampire, spike, described love as follows: "you'll never be friends. you'll fight and you'll shag and you'll love each other 'til it kills you. love isn't brains, children, it's blood. blood screaming inside you to work its will. and i may be love's female dog*, but at least i'm man enough to admit it." right on, spike.

i am a crumpler. i don't trust folders.

i like cycling. i do it as often as i can. now that i'm in china, i rarely do. so try not to rub it in. i miss my bikes.

i just purchased an iPhone 4. which means i will have a super new mobile device. even more super, perhaps, than the one i had before. and it's 32gb!

if "peter pan" had been written around now, they wouldn't have said a fairy dies every time someone says they don't believe in fairies." they would have said "some good in this world dies every time someone uses internet explorer." there are few things that aggravate me more than microsoft internet explorer. i try really hard not to judge people, but if you use IE, i can't help it. please start using a real browser

i play guitar. i could not bring my guitar to china, but i hope to find one while i'm here. playing my guitar makes me happy.

'tis i, THE lowly peon! i am a computer geek for a ginormous manufacturing company based in houston. houston is surely not my favorite place on earth, but the company is soon sending me to china! i am very excited about this. i like apple computers, and i like web development. i like good music. if you're curious about specifics, just know that no one has better musical taste than i, unless, of course, it is identical. i'm a big sap for cheeesy love songs. i also like good movies. people tend to disagree with me about what movies are good. i'm also a sucker for sappy love movies. i have an idea of my "best self" (to use ethan hawke's words in before sunset), and sadly, nearly every aspect of that "best self" conflicts with every other aspect. thus, my mind tends to be all over the place. i like to think i'm a jack of all trades, and i'm surely a master of none. and just remember: the sun's not yellow; it's chicken.

my iphone is currently running 4.2!
