fresh air

November 8th, 2007

Here’s a breath of fresh air: It’s going to be a painful 12 months’ wait for the Olympics. Well, it’s less than 12 months, now, and it’s already painful enough…. But wait, is that blogspot open again? That opened unproxified for me!

And on the subject of fresh air: It was still rather hazy, but generally unfogged, this morning, but the air is clearing up beautifully as the day goes on. No doubt that lovely, cool breeze is at least in part to blame… A pity that the rain forecast for this morning didn’t materialise, though.

    I think you ran into one of those occasional glitches in the GFW. I’ve just tried posting an entry on blogspot that includes some of those words which get Nanny all hysterical. If blogspot was back, I probably couldn’t publish an entry which includes any of them without getting an error message.

    It’ll be like that time when one day, completely by chance, I managed to get onto a geocities site, a feat I was unable to reduplicate the following day.

    You may be right. We’ll see.

    Cross the fingers. Blogspot and others are always in and out. Concerning the weather in Beijing, I was at China World yesterday afternoon, it was terrible but today we had such a blue sky that we could see the mountains. 11 years in China and I still don’t understand how it works!

    Aye, the language I can get my head around, the bloody weather…. Yeah, it cleared up beautifully down here in southern Chaoyang, real nice sunset.

    Curiously enough, even here in Chengdu we had a nice clear day for once. That’s meant to last until next Monday according to the forecast, but I think I’ll believe it when I see it.

    Clear weather in Chengdu? The sky must’ve fallen!
