Given I have three of the most loyal commentators in the blog world, you’d think I would take better care of them and respond immediately every time they gave me a few seconds of their day.
Thank you Albert for saving me from that sentence. Now, onto the mailbag.
Questions are separated out by my main 3 commentators: Grandma, Natchan and Alex. Their questions are left justified, my answers are in the bullets. Clicking on the links will take you to the original comments. All of my answers were written tonight.
- I was off for 11 days because this year the birthday of the Chinese National Party and the Mid-Autumn Festival lined up very closely. To give us even more time, school held classes on the prior Sunday to give us maximum consecutive time off.
- Potstickers are what the Chinese dumplings I’ve eaten in America are usually called. For more, read the Wikipedia entry on dumplings:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jiaozi [link to the article works]
- Unfortunately at the moment I don’t have any copies of the pictures. Hopefully I can acquire some to share. Thanks for commenting. Love, Charlie
- Sorry, but I don’t know what kind of flowers make the 60, but I agree they are certainly beautiful. Thanks for reading and commenting!
- Glad you can chuckle, it’s revenge for what I did to you with my cell phone alarm at Shelly’s place that morning.It refers to an article I was composing for Perfect Sound Forever analyzing the past ten years of Japanese Gold Disc Award winners to try and uncover the formula for winning.
- I agree, Chris did have a very justifiable obsession with that tripod, though hopefully for the sake of that sweet girl at Bic Camera he gave the tripod to Ayla to use.
