Since it is currently prime monsoon season in the Orient, I have been experiencing bright flashes of lightning and loud crashes of thunder right outside my bedroom window the past few nights. It's unlike anything I have ever seen before and I thought it would be a good idea to take a video so you could see it first hand. Well...this was actually the worst possible idea as the thunder and lightning had serious stagefright, and I ended up talking for 4 plus minutes awkwardly and aimlessly into the camera....
If you value your time whatsoever, I highly suggest that you don't watch this video. And if you're just in the mood to watch a dumb video, I would recommend "Bed Intruder Song" or anything by Good Neighbor Stuff on Youtube. Those dudes are effing hilarious.
...Speaking of Monsoons, I do appreciate the rain a little (it makes going out at night a bitch, though!) cause it cools down the air somewhat. On an average day, I'd say I lose 7 pounds of sheer sweat; it's disgusting. I have taken the word "swampass" to a whole new level. Being abroad and not having a job, I've seriously considered gathering my sweat beads off my face everyday, putting them in jars, labeling them as 'gypsy tears,' and selling them. (They cure AIDS, you know. And Herpes too...at least I haven't had an outbreak in a few weeks.) It may be hard to believe, but this is not even close in grossness to some of the things I have seen being sold off the streets here in Asia. I could sell my own nail filings and I could probably make a profit on them here.
One other thing:
I realize I haven't really described life in Hong Kong yet and the reason is simple- my nights have been very typical, aka Blackout City. As soon as I have an eventful night, where I don't need to be filled in for the most part, it will be up on ze blog.
HAPPY NEW YEAR & MY DEEPEST APOLOGIES GO OUT TO ANYONE WHO SUFFERED DURING THE VIEWING OF THAT VIDEO. I didn't say anything before, but you have 7 days to live....
PS. I have fucking make-up class tomorrow. On a saturday. Why would my professors ever think that was okay?
