Like running head first into a wall. Tuesday morning I was debating whether I should go workout at lunch, given that I was feeling fatigued and I had a climbing class that evening. By Tuesday evening, I was feverish and could barely crawl into bed (I had cancelled my climbing class) and promptly slept about twenty hours. I'm quite thankful that I have an understanding boss who let me take the morning (and most of the afternoon) off, although I doubt that I would have been much use sitting in a sleepy fog. I'm feeling much better today, although I'm drinking plenty of water, eating lots of fresh fruit, and am paying a visit to my acupressurist tonight.

TC has a great entry on his site about the rising popularity of SUVs in Taipei. Now all we need is a Chinese language version of Big Game SUV Tagging.

It was raining last Friday morning on my way to work. I passed a woman piggybacking her grandson. He kept the both of them drying by holding an umbrella. Very cute.

Check out my friend Calvin's website, which has a nice page on his sister Candice, who was a very good childhood friend of mine.

Since last Saturday, I have been sleeping on a new bed, which has done wonders for my back pain. I hired the movers and felt absolutely odd to be just sitting there while he took apart the frame, hauled the frame and the mattress out, drove to my apartment, hauled everything upstairs, moved my old bed out, and then huffed and puffed while he reassembled the frame and put the mattress on top. Now, I realize the whole point of hiring a mover is to spare me from doing all this myself, but I am just not used to just sitting and quietly reading a book while someone is laboring and sweating away for my benefit.
