In case there are people who actually follow this thing and are wondering about my whereabouts, I am alive and mostly well in Atlanta.

Last Wednesday, I went to work after a long night of attempted insect genocide. I left work early because of a creeping nausea which at home turned into dry heaves, full-body soreness, and a general malaise. I have a feeling it was either a case of food poisoning or too much exposure to a variety of ant killers including, but not exclusive to, CVS Ant and Roach killer, Terro Ant Killer liquid, a vinegar and water mixture (apparently ants seem to like that not-so-fresh feeling), and some ouroboric acid.

Particularly irksome was the knowledge that despite the imperative urge to bring forth stomach acid through my mouth and nostrils, I would have to get up at 6:00 in the AM to get to the airport on time for my flight down to Miami. While I did feel better in the evening, I made sure, despite my pervasive fatigue, to pack some plastic bags in my carry-on, on the off-chance that the a bumpy flight would make me want to spew some amalgam of bottled water and Cinnabon.

Didn't do much of anything down in Miami, aside from watching a whole bunch of television and DVDs. Aside from a marathon of Modern Marvel's "Engineering Disasters" on the History Channel, I watched a DVD of The Adventures of the Galaxy Rangers and finally caught Donnie Darko. The family also sat down together and watched both Hero and House of Flying Daggers even though we'd already seen the former once before.

So I'm back in Atlanta, doing a whole bunch of squat because I'm getting ready for this weekend--the family is heading to Los Angeles, where we're supposed to do a bunch of touristy type things. I don't think we'll be going to Universal, but I did just make a reservation to go see the WB Studio Tour.

Hopefully, as we pass through the Gilmore Girls set, I'll catch Lauren Graham's eye, and I can whisk her away to Tahoe or BC or somewhere for a month of something or another involving me dressed up as Santa Claus.

Yeah, right. A silly Chinese boy can dream, can't he?
