Stuff I Love

One of my challenges is the committment to cooking at home because there is so much delicious food available steps away. In China I ate street food quite a bit, but here in America it can be fattening and/or expensive to eat out a lot. (Tonight I ate an avocado for dinner, though, so ‘cooking’ at home should not be taken literally.) 

Food trucks are still not as good as Chonqing street barbecue stands, but a hell of a lot better than chains.

I’ve binge-watched Archer over the last 2 weeks. This snapshot is one of the reasons why. Constantly cracked me up. The other is if I met Archer in a bar, I’d totally let him hit on me*
*I have very bad judgment about who I let hit on me.

My next vacation, after Ireland and Scotland, definitely needs to be to a place where all I have to do that day is lie on a beach chair.

I don’t smoke cigars, but I miss being around someone who does. I love the smell and look of a man smoking a cigar.

China Lessons

The skill I learned in China I use the most now is not speaking Mandarin or cooking traditional Sichuan foods: it’s navigating unseen through herds of shoppers/strollers/tourists who have no idea (or don’t care) how much space they are taking up. I force-field push them out of the way like watermelon seeds between my fingers with only the skilled turn of shoulder or thigh. This is a game they cannot win.

When someone loses someone close to them, I try to help with the small things. I know how hard it can be to figure out what to eat for dinner and clean your bathroom and buy food when your whole life is turned upside down. I also know weeks or months down the road, when everyone else has moved on but your life is still never the same again, helping out in small ways is still a way for me to show I remember, and I care.
