Gah, I'm too old for this - aren't I?

Monday: Make cheesecake, despite broiling hot day. Curse stupid idea the whole time.

Tuesday 12:30 p.m.: Pack cheesecake into bag, along with chocolate and honeydew melon candy purchased in Hong Kong. Drop goodies off at Kaori/Kayun/Tai Xiong's place. Wait for Luke to show up, go to lunch with Luke and Kaori.

1:30 p.m. Wait for Hiyoshi to show up. Go to coffee with Luke, Kaori, and Hiyoshi.

3:30 p.m. Wait for Kayun to show up. Hang out at coffee shop and then return to Kaori/Kayun/Tai Xiong's place, after stopping at Wellcome (yes, it's spelled like that) for brewskis.

5:00 p.m. Listen to Hiyoshi explain to Long Yan what food is NOT available at the apartment and what to bring.

7:00 p.m. Meet Caroline at MRT station, cruise over to Shi Da Rd. for some guo tie and more beer.

7:30 p.m. Arrive back at Kaori/Kayun/Tai Xiong's place to find that Ye Laoshi and Emily have made an appearance, bearing pizza. Watch Long Yan and Hiyoshi in kitchen preparing some weird stuff, decide pizza looks like a better bet.

8:30 p.m. Meet James at MRT station and head to Wellcome for more beer.

8:30 p.m. - 3:00 a.m. Drink lots of beer, eat lots of food, take lots of blurry photos (, chat and laugh with good friends, wonder why the hell I'm still awake.

Wednesday 3:30 a.m. Attempt to sleep on couch while Kayun, Kaori, Emily, and cute Korean guy whose name I have forgotten keep on with noisy discussion in dining room. Fail miserably at sleep.

5:00 a.m. Wonder why in hell Kayun is cleaning the apartment.

6:00 a.m. Drag sorry ass to MRT station, catch first train back to Zhuwei.

7:00 a.m. Fall into bed with fan and air conditioner on because it's already unbelievably hot. Sleep fitfully for four hours.

11:00 a.m. Get up, make coffee, slowly wake up, vacuum filthy, cat-hair-covered apartment, take shower, go to Taipei and teach for two hours. Return home in time to eat dinner before 8:30 p.m. student arrives.

10:00 p.m. or thereabouts Give up and go to bed.

Thursday 4:00 a.m. Get up because already wide awake. Dink around on computer for an hour. Go back to bed and sleep until around 8:45 a.m.

8:38 p.m. Realize that I had a pretty good time this week, despite lack of sleep and arrival of severe tropical storm Bilis, which at least brought some cooler air to us.

Wonder what Friday will bring me? Will I go to see Pirates of the Caribbean with Luke and gang, or will I be stuck in my apartment because of torrential rain?

Good work on partying till 3am. I used to do that too, but my lifestyle in Taipei turned me into an old lady who's in bed by midnight.
