Things are finally starting to come together. Thursday we got internet. Yesterday we got cable, and the tv was delivered. The MO is now a much happier man (sooo many more channels than at the hotel ;-) I was able to get online and do some work and boy did that feel good. Today we're planning a mad furniture hunt to take advantage of the Chinese New Year sales, and hopefully get some stuff before everything shuts down for the holiday.
I've been getting to know the washing machine and I have to say that so far I hate it with the burning hate of a thousand hating haters. It doesn't like me much, either. Srsly, folks, an hour and a half to wash the tiniest little load of laundry you ever did see? And then two hours to attempt to dry it? Which only works if you take out most of the wet clothes before you start? This side of the world may have niftier electronics (our tv is Hot) but they don't know squat about washing machines.
