I have taken lots and lots of crappy pictures. The pictures are crappy because, HELLO, I TOOK THEM, and also because I took them on my four-year-old iPod Touch**, which I think has something lame-o like a .000492 megapixel lens. Covered in a thick layer of grime.
[**Remember that for later in this blog post.]
And I haven't put said crappy pictures up on my blog before because, HELLO, THEY'RE CRAPPY, but you know what? They do a great job of catching some of the seriously random stuff here in Chengdu that I don't always have my good camera around for.
So, you guys, HOW could I not share some of this awesomeness with y'all? Such as...
Anyone hungry for a snack? Anyone want some...
What? You don't want any FROG CRASH MILK??
Well, FINE THEN, you totally picky thing. How about some:
Germ With Milk?
Yes, sure, they didn't tell you WHICH germ you're having with your milk, but this is China and if you're too persnickety about food items here you just may starve to death.
But I can tell that you're all freaky-deaky about new/different food, so we'll move on to something safe.
Like school supplies.
Anyone need a new notebook for English class?
You need a new English notebook because "Life is a long journey don t waste time to wait for those who don t and you would like to cooperate with people." That's why. Oh, and by the way... "My home have a little cat name flower."
Does YOUR home have a little cat name flower? No? That's because you didn't buy your English books in China.
And speaking of stuff you haven't bought, have you bought an iPod yet?
Because if you haven't bought an iPod yet:
YOU'RE A LOSER.
And yes, this is a REAL, huge, poster-sized advertisement at a REAL (fake) Apple store on the same street as the Consulate. The Apple store looks 100% real but is 100% not real, but even the employees who work there think it is.
Oh, China. How I love you. And I'm totally not even joking about that. I. FREAKING. LOVE. THIS. PLACE.
And you know what else? How I told you at the beginning of this blog post that I took all of these pictures with my super-old iPod Touch?
The fake Apple Store would tell me that, since I own an iPod, I am therefore not a loser. Oh, fake Apple Store. If only it was THAT EASY to avoid loser-dom!
But you know who REALLY isn't a loser? My friend Jill (The Perlman Update). My friend Jill who just singlehandedly resurrected the State Department Blog RoundUp FS BRU from death today and breathed new life into it! My friend Jill is a WINNER in every sense of the word. Oh, I just absolutely love that fabulous girlfriend of mine!
And I love the rest of y'all as well. :)
Frog Crash Milk, anyone? I could probably totally mail you some, if you'd like...
