Little Frustrations

In general, I don't like Chinese New Year. There are several reasons for this: there's no work to do (I like and need my work), there is far too much traffic on the roads, there are far too many strangers around who freak my dog out (people who live and work in Taipei who come back to see their families here in the South - it might be just me, but some of these people seem to become more Chinese the longer they spend up north), most of the pubs are closed most of the time, and there are too many infantiles shooting off fireworks in broad daylight. On a day with the most beautiful sunshine we've had all winter. At the beach. After it took me 20 mins longer to get there because of the insane traffic. And I had thought to go running and swimming with my dog.

Goddamn it.
