So, here we sit... waiting for Ol' Man Winter to drop the other shoe (which isn't supposed to happen until Tuesday), half-assed watching the situation unfold in Egypt (about which we can't seem to generate much interest, other than reading the comments on the subject at Lex's place, all 69 of 'em), and makin' the rounds of my other Daily Reads.
I got nuthin' today. I spent a lil time perusing the archives for something to re-run but nothing really struck my fancy. I posted the only re-run I found even remotely interesting a little over a year ago this month, so there's no sense in doin' THAT again. But, if you weren't hangin' out in these parts a year ago and if you're interested in a tale of Innocents Abroad, specifically abroad in China, then you might enjoy this. And this. There are lots of photos, if nothing else. Including this one:
The original caption to that photo was "Why I love Japan - Beer machines!" And yes, I did say the re-runs are about China... and they ARE. But you also get a lil bit o' Japan as a bonus, mainly because I'm a generous sort.
Apropos of not much... why don't we have beer machines in these United States? We claim to be a civilized and advanced country, right?
