Been about a year and a half since anyone posted anything here... folks, is anyone looking at the Shoutbox, or has Twitter made it redundant?

If anyone actually reads the Shoutbox, I haven't fallen off the edge of the earth. Trying to get myself to sit and post to the Journal. :work:

Sitting pretty in Hong Kong's YWCA Anne Black House, in case anyone's reading this thing. Wi-fi was a bear to start.

The day at work yesterday was full throttle suck.  Need new job.  Pronto.  Enough of that.  

And now the good news:  I got Weird Al's new album, "Mandatory Fun"!

When today started, I had a ton of stuff to do:  laundry, dry cleaning drop off, haircut, voting in G.O.P. primary runoff, workout, and my 1000 word writing exercise.  I prioritized:  as soon as I got the sheets into the washing machine, I zipped over to Wal*Mart and hit the music section in Electronics.  Yeah, I already preordered the iTunes download for my phone.  I wanted something I could actually touch, and dang it, Al's wallet needs more padding!  So I checked out the racks and found... nothing.  Nada.  Nothing new.  Just his "Essential" compilation album, and I already got that.

With that sucking the wind out of my sails, I just moseyed back to the apartment to sulk and get my whites and undies ready.

Tried downloading the virtual liner notes.  Didn't take.  Figured I might have to settle for a trip to Barnes and Nobles or another Big City book 'n music store.  It was, as Al sang, one of those First World Problems.

Well, after getting a haircut and going to the local mall to kill some time while waiting for the next showtime for Dinesh D'Souza's "America," I moseyed into the K-mart there to check out the music there.  I'd smiled because I'd bought my first Weird Al CD, "Bad Hair Day" there... all in bicentennial quarters I'd saved.  Hey, tight times and the pearl of high price.

Well, I thought it was going to be another dry search, but... right there in the New Selections.  Bingo!

I wish I'd brought my presidential dollar coins for old times sake, but maybe next album.

And as I bop to some Mandatory Fun, here is the Obligatory...

Thanks for the watch!

I have to check- my uncle is a Maryknoll Missionary, and he's been working in China, out of Hong Kong, for the last few decades... how deep into China were you?

I taught in Guangzhou, roughly 90 minutes away from Hong Kong by rail.  Started out as a missionary teacher, but ended up a simple teacher for almost nine years.  Was fun, did some good, and many wonderful memories, but I'm glad to be back in the USA for now.

Hello! 
My friend and I thought it would be good for us if we give points to those who really need it.
That's why we're here, we just want to ask you if you want to donate between 1-5 points if you want, you can even donate more. 
No matter if you can not give us, that ever you read makes me think try to help. 
See you later, I hope you have a nice day?

Thanks kindly.  I'll be putting up a post in the dA journal in a few, so keep your eyes peeled on that, too.  And a merry Christmas to you, too. :) :holly:
