It was a welcome site today when my China visa came. Everything seems to be correct...looked at it about 10x to make sure. So now I feel a little more prepared...the next step is to figure out what clothes I'm bringing, which will be hard. It's going to be cold in Israel, warm in thailand and vietnam, then cold in China...and I only have a backpack to fit everything in. One of the most difficult questions is how many pairs of these new socks to bring. Because, one thing i've learned in my short life is that foot care is of utmost importance. With the dangers of athletes foot and toejam lurking around every corner, I wouldn't want to be caught in the jungles of Nam without a clean and comfortable pair of socks to wear...I might as well cut my toes off and call it a day.

Speaking of Vietnam, I recently found out that this small, but populous country is one of the world's largest exporters of fish/seafood. My uncle wants me to check out the fish industry there and make some contacts...I wonder if there is a Fish King of Vietnam, much like Abe Froeman is the Sausage King of Chicago. Tonight I'm going for some sushi...will the fish be from vietnam? I guess there's no way to find out. It should be interesting to see what the crowd is like at a sushi restaurant on Christmas Eve. And if anyone reading this is celebrating that rightfully commercialized and wholly Amercan holiday, Merry Christmas!

Wow, this is really weird, but as far as I know I only have one christmas song on my computer: "Jingle Bells" played by Dave Brubeck. And right as I typed "Merry Christmas!" in the last sentence that song came is set on random, so there is a 1 in 3700 chance that this song, or any song christmas song, would play...fucking weird.
