I’m getting a new job in China. Most people to hear such news would be rather pleased, maybe tell their folks and friends. As for me I wont tell a soul, well, except for you guys.

Usually a new job means increased responsibility, more work and more rewards, but I live in China. To me it means nothing more than the fact that its now incumbent upon me to attend more meetings. This is a fate worse then a pencil lead stabbed into one’s eye ball as you must sit, listenting to more elderly chinese ‘experts’ grunt and groan as they talk about their nephew tai phu who now lives in America. To this i must pleasantly smile as if I give a shit and nod my head sagely. At the end of the day, their little burden of a family member is the least of my worries. I still as of yet have found a consistent source of Reeses Peanut Butter cups.
