Andy stopped by Taipei two Fridays ago when he came to Taiwan on business for Henkel Consumer Adhesives. We quickly caught up and I learned all sorts of fascinating facts about tape. So folks, the next time you are in need of duct tape, get the brand with the cute yellow duck with the green sash on it. It's the best.
Benson was so kind in chauffering me around Taipei over the weekend so that I could gather materials for the baby shower I threw for my friend Maria yesterday. We ate assorted bagels with cream cheese and lox, basil egg salad, cheesecake with blueberries, watermelon, freshly-squeezed watermelon lemonade, and Maria's delicious blinis with salmon caviar, raspberry jam, or honey. Maria is so big, and absolutely glowing, and baby Max slept quietly in the womb as we celebrated his impending arrival.
