New apartment

Shao-ling and I spent the weekend moving my things into the new apartment, cleaning, putting together three "closets", and rearranging the furniture. I'm glad we're finished now, moving in 90 degree weather and upwards of 75% humidity isn't very fun. For the past couple of weeks it has rained every afternoon in Taipei. It's sunny until around 1-3PM then it will suddenly start raining and won't let up until 6-8PM. So we had to be careful of our timing in order not to get all my things soaked. We got back to Shao-ling's home around 10:30PM last night. Tonight we are going to clean the new apartment. Apparently it's not customary for the previous renters to clean up after themselves, nor for the landlord to clean the apartment before new tenants arrive. Since I won't have TV or an internet connection for awhile, at least cleaning will keep me from being bored. Hopefully I can get an internet connection soon, I still want to work on the website code some, and fix some bugs in WoW add-ons I develop. We still need to find time to finish our wedding invitations to. If we don't send them soon we'll be married before the invitations even arrive. We still have a lot of planning to do too. I hope we can get everything ready on time. I'm glad my parents already bought their plane tickets. They'll probably be the only ones coming for me from the US. I might have some of my local coworkers who want to go too, although they might be disappointed that I'm not planning on having "Texas moonshine" at the wedding. I wasn't aware of it, but it seems Texans are known in Taiwan for drinking "moonshine". My coworkers were shocked I don't drink alcohol at all. I told them not to worry though, all my Texas buddies LOVE moonshine, and I gave them the wikipedia article on everclear. 😉
