  1. We Are Off

    Ok, weíre set. Tomorrow weíre off, into the wild blue yonder of half way around the world to a place as remote and ancient as anywhere in the world, a place where westerners crossed over as part of the silk road to China, a place Marco Polo could have felt comfortable, though he didnít cross that way, a place where the first horses were supposed to have been domesticated, a culture over the centuries mixed with Mongols and Turks and Cossacks and Persians and Chinese, a vast land mostly of steppe ...
  2. Things I Hate

    A list of things I hate (Iíve tried to put it in order but it depends on how I feel so I might change it).

    1) When people mispronounce/spell my surname. Itís surprisingly common and Iíve no idea why. Even if I spell it to them they seem to insist on adding an Ďsí on the end of it.

    Gah, i hate stress. I get such bad stomach aches. It also turns out that my anxiety is most likely the cause of my lightheadness, dizziness, and the few spells of verdego i have had. By the way, verdego is probably the worst thing ever. The whole world seems to be spinning around you. Tilting, sliding, you feel as if your falling. Last time i had it, i got so nausious i actually threw up. gah...
