Fall 1981. Fair Warning was released. Maybe the best rock album released between 1980and 1985. I devoured this album. I remember I was at a friend's house on a Friday night. There were girls and everything. The LP was on. When "Sinner's Swing" was on, I couldn't control myself. I started singing the song word for word.

The chorus of the song is "Get get get get get out and push," repeated. I knew that and sang as such. One of my friends laughed at me and said that I got it wrong. He made some stupid comment about "bush" being in the song. Everyone agreed with him. i was embarrassed and could not sell my version. IT WAS THE ACCURATE VERSION !!

Now, flash forward. I had the album on my ipod. I had not heard the song in a very long time. When the chorus came on, I remembered that traumatic evening. I promptly went home and found the lyrics on the internet. Vindication.

I miss my babies!!!!

I am preparing to begin my third (holy shit!) year in Taiwan. I will be at the school that originally hired me to come to Taiwan. My last year was eventful, even though I did not manage to document any of those events here. Sorry. The school I just finished at turned out to be a bad place. The owners are complete asses. The kids, however, are the sweetest, cutest, most fun people I have ever been around. I miss them already. I will see them again, but it won't be the same as having them all day, five days a week. They'll be fine, but I'll be a blubbering mess.

Moments after snapping this photo, my limbs were ripped from my body by seven bloodthirsty lions. Posted by Picasa

We all should have shirts like this

Mine would read "I lost my virginity in the frontseat of a Datsun B210 hatchback" or "I lost my virginity in a depressingly short amount of time." Posted by Picasa

Mountain scenery

This isn't even that far into the mountains. This is a place called "Lion's Head Mountain." There are many, many temples here, and it is a very peaceful place to sit and do nothing. Posted by Picasa
