One guess, as to where this gorgeous gift came from?!! Yes! Tiny's SPECIAL Ohio Auntie!!! Aaaawww... I absolutely LOVE this gift! How cute are those PJs?!!! And the little "no spill" cup thingie... I've never even seen one like that before! Cool!!! (we live under a big rock, here in Australia... there's lotsa things we don't have ~ canned pumpkin ~ cheese in a bottle ~ butt paste... I could go on forever!)
This morning, I awoke from my slumber at 215am. I was thinking about our taxi ride from the Shanghai airport to our hotel - that we are arranging ourselves. I was thinking about how NOONE speaks English (including taxi drivers). I was worried, we wouldn't go to the right hotel!! So at 3am, the worry got the better of me, and I got up to surf the net to find our Hotel name and address in Chinese, for the cabbie!!! I found it. I can rest easy now. I did some other things, then went back to bed at 530am. I woke up to the phone ringing at 930am!!!
What am I going to be like when we are REALLY close to travel?!! Yikes. In our Tari Forever Day photos, I'm going to look like an inverted Panda!!! (white with black rings around my eyes, instead of black with white rings!!!)
I've got 19 days to get some sleep.
We saw Marley and Me last night. I really liked it. I was a little annoyed because my husband "let the dog out of the bag", so to speak, and told me how it ended... before the movie had even begun. Its a nice movie. A no-brainer. No real plot, its more of a "real life" kinda movie ~ which is funny, coz I don't tend to like those sort of movies!!!
Oh yeah, I bought a new camera. Coz that's what you do, when you're trying not to spend money, to pay for a hugely inflated donation. Anyway - I got this. It was almost 1/2 price, because it's been superceded. I don't care, as long as it takes nice photos!! Its what I like to call "semi automatic"! You can set it on auto - or focus manually etc. Its got the nice big lens for clear close ups. (which I've tested - and it's 100 times better than my pocket cam.)
Now, here's a question for those "been there, done that" people. Do I take it to China? I know, I bought it to take to China, but now, I'm thinking its alot bigger (and alot heavier than my pocket camera). We're taking the movie camera, and Todd has a new "underwater" pocket digital camera (just in case you do a spot of scuba diving with Tiny, in China?!!!) and we've got a Sony Cybershot pocket camera (which I love - takes good photos - is very easy to use).
