xoxo, your shower drain

I woke bleary-eyed one morning in Chongqing, China, and had to rub my eyes to make sure I wasn't still dreaming.

If this rosy shower drain could talk (or write a letter), here's what I think it might say:

Dear Shower Friend,

I am so small. Just big enough for love---that's all.
And maybe a bit of world peace.
Some water too.

Your Friendly Hotel Shower Drain

I Like China Because I'm An Economist

Economists are all about charts, graphs, and efficiency. I didn't see many charts and graphs in China, but I did see efficiency.

Step 1: Arrive at airport, roughly 1 hour out of the city by car

Step 2: Buy ticket for sooper dooper fast magnetic train

Step 3: Board train, taking note of current time and speed

Step 4: Enjoy the ride, levitating your way into Shanghai

Step 5: As you begin to slow down, note current time and speed

Step 6: Exit train and enter Shanghai 7 minutes and 1 pleased economist later.

Saw Sex and the City less than 24 hours after I touched down in the states (an offer of besties and clothing candy is just too good to refuse).
Love love loved it.

In love with these clothes:

Oh yes, and these blue Manolo's:

But not as much as I lalalaloved these words to Beethoven's Immortal Beloved:

Be calm, only by a calm consideration of our existence can we achieve our purpose to live together - Be calm - love me - today - yesterday - what tearful longings for you - you - you - my life - my all - farewell. Oh continue to love me - never misjudge the most faithful heart of your beloved.

ever thine
ever mine
ever ours
