Well, well.  Old man Winter seems to be here for keeps now.  It's nice and sunny, but it's also cold!  We have had plumbers and now Drywallers and tapers in our apartment for the last few weeks.  They come in early in the morning and we have to get up so they can repair and replace stuff.  So, anyway, not a lot else is happening.  Winter is cold and damp here, so other than the usual working, playing, drinking hot fluids and fighting off colds by trying not to breathe too hard on the bus, you spend a lot of time trying not to eat too much rice.  Hot steamed rice is awesome when the weather gets cold and it really makes you feel comfortable and warm, but it's easy to eat too much and thats when you start to feel bloaty and heavy with starch.  Anyway, we eat a lot of rice and it's nice.  I've been trying to bike as long as possible in this weather, but I draw the line at freezing rain.  There is a point when bicycling starts to feel more like a stubborn chore than a nice fun way to get around.  Anyway, I hope everyone out there in blog-reader-land is doing well and I'll post more.  I promise.
