Thar She Blows
Oh man, after a lifelong fascination with the ocean, this is the first time I've been able to use that phrase in earnest. Typhoon Jangmi (which is supposed to be big but I don't know anything about weather measurements so you should really just read about it at Bloomberg) is expected to pass through Taiwan and then on to eastern China.
It's sort of scary and exciting, witnessing my first typhoon. Exciting because I will hopefully get to watch TV all day tomorrow, which will be a welcome break from all the pavement beating we've been doing in this tortuous humidity. Scary because I will likely be stuck inside this apartment with my boyfriend and his mom for a 24-hour stretch. Pray for me.
