Darn. I recently downloaded Opera, but I won't be able to use it to edit my blog. Yet.
I'll be sure to post my thoughts on Opera as I get more familiar with it, but moving on...my thoughts on my Lunar New Year Ski Vacation Extravaganza to Whistler, Canada will just have to wait till I have the opportunity and energy to sit down and record them and no more events like what happened on Monday night occur. On Monday night, I managed to do what no locksmith (well, just one particular locksmith) had ever seen before: I managed to get a key stuck in a lock, and no amount of grease or pulling would get the key out.
Since the washing machine was broken, I had gone over to my roommate's brother's apartment across the way to do laundry. Unfortunately, I didn't make it past the front door until after the locksmith had jiggled, yanked, jimmied, and finally, physically removed the lock. Earlier that evening, I had been giggling over David Sedaris' Me Talk Pretty One Day, particularly his adventures learning French as an adult. My roommate remarked that after this lock fiasco had passed, I too could one day write a book about my adventures in Taiwan.
