ramen weather!

When it starts getting chilly outside, nothing satisfies the soul better than a nice warm bowl of ramen. It’s quite solidly fall these days, and now that daylight savings is over (I hope you remembered to change your clocks!), it’s darker earlier. Which means that I want nothing more than to curl up in bed and hibernate through winter. But since that’s not an option (or at least not a viable option if I want to maintain my health/work/life), thank goodness there’s ramen. Nothing makes you feel like a human faster than being warmed from the inside out and left happy and full.

the perils of online shopping in china

I think I overdid it. Online shopping is just¬†way too easy in China! Click click click. Click. Woot! Junk food! Order placed at 9:30 AM. Order arrived at my door at 4:30 PM. Amazing! Only once I was unpacking the boxes did I think … holy crap that’s a lot of food.

Online shopping in China is amazing. Quick, efficient, and often cheaper than the stores. Food and household stuff from YHD, clothes and things from TaoBao/TMall, electronics from JD, and I’m pretty much covered. It’s gonna be hard once I go back to the States. Amazon Prime was pretty amazing when I lived in New York, but … it just doesn’t compare.
