July 1st — Canada Day, Lady Diana’s birthday, the day for massive marches in Hong Kong, and if I remember right, my own birthday as well. (Don’t ask how old I am; I stopped counting.) My first birthday at home in America in years. Posts may be sparse as I have to spend time with the family, but I’ll try to slip off and blog whenever I get the chance. To my friends in HK, have a great time at the march.
To my friends in the US, remember, friends don’t let friends vote Republican. That’s what you can get me for my birthday — talk someone you love into voting for Kerry. Thanks.
