random thought for the day

September 12, 2005

Does loving to shop in a foreign country mean that I am buying into the American idea of consumerism and helping to encourage the image of Western culture as materialistic?

But then I mean who can resist a ratio of 8 yuan to the dollar.

In other news, I would love emails regarding the following topics:
updates on the news (esp the Supreme Court nominations)
updates on Hurricane Katrina and the relief efforts
news and gossip from the Goshen Campus

send any such info to
abby period last name at gmail period com

one last parting shot, today my breakfast consisted of 5 little baozi, which are these steamed buns stuffed with a sausage like filling, oh and it cost 25 cents!
