~~前言~~
Thanksgiving放掉了一堂難纏的課,load頓時減輕很多,趕緊趁此大好良機,跟著好久不見的Chung去看好久不見的musical show。

難得進城,當然午場晚場都要看。沒想到居然還在時差中的Chung就這麼不敵幕起燈暗的誘惑,看午場的時候昏睡過去。現在想想可能是我對他太好心,都讓他一直休息,沒有操到不能停下來休息而晚上累得昏沈,不然怎麼整個星期時差都調不過來?下次要命令他把全宿舍裡外都打掃乾淨...。

原本昨天Chung一到這兒的計畫,就是去市區處理事情,「順便」逛逛outlet或者mall之類的。不過有先見之明的我,看他禮拜天沾床就睡,睡完臺灣晚上吃完晚餐繼續睡紐約晚上的樣子,覺得還是不要在抵達第一天的時候自己一個人長途開車好。

所以說,今天雖然颳風下雨凍死人,對開車的人倒也沒差,他就出門採辦各方親友交代物品去了。

  • 接機

沒有車,開車也從不超過我家方圓十里範圍的我,居然要去接機耶~。而且全程不開車,完全是公車加火車加捷運的組合,實在太神奇了。

第一次接機,我也搞不清楚到底距離飛機預計抵達時間究竟還要多久人才會從出境大門跑出來。手上拿著犒賞(? 又沒做啥犒什麼賞)接機者與被接機者的麥當勞早餐,抵達機場發現飛機還早到了二十分鐘,這樣對故意遲到拖時間的我來講好像晚到了五十分鐘了,似乎不大妙。不過好險,在看了十幾二十分鐘帶著各式burberry配件(圍巾、皮包、手提箱、帽子)的日本人被limo司機接走之後,噹噹!帶著許多零食的Chung出現囉!

  • 囤積

搬家時開了好幾次車才把衣服、書、日用品等十幾箱東西載完。我知道在這邊生活本來東西就是會越買越多,可我也知道這裡面也有一堆東西是重複的。除了當時因為學校家裡兩邊跑必須得買兩套的必需品之外,很多東西是買起來放著的囤積貨。

我無法忍受東西用完了或者即將用完之前臨時採購的感覺。明明上個月才特價便宜到不行的洗髮精,我為什麼現在要花多上一倍的價錢買?只因為「現在」剛好用完?所以我大多是以「空間換取時間換取金錢」,特價的時候多買一點(當然也不是數量很多的「一點」),留存起來,這樣子「用完了馬上就有新的,而且是便宜貨」。因此廚房除了正在用的那罐洗碗精之外,水槽下面可能還有一罐或兩罐新的。

這種行為在搬家前自動增加強度。原因很簡單:連原本預計要買的腳踏車也決定不買了,要去那些「開車的話沒五分鐘可走路起來會累死人的」超級市場、藥局、便利商店實在太不方便,家庭主婦斤斤計較的本領也無法如同以前一樣徹底施展,沒搬家前仗著有車可以搬家,走路三分鐘範圍內要什麼店有什麼店的優勢,我幾乎是把未來一年份(至少半年)要用到的日用品份量買齊了。在一個人生地不熟的地方,手臂沒啥力氣提一堆東西坐公車或走路回家的我平常只要採買食物,偶爾補給一下日用品就行了。我可不希望半夜鼻子過敏到一半發現衛生紙沒了而讓報告淹沒在鼻水裡....

For various reasons, I had some chances to talk with my dear old friends in Taiwan on the phone recently. I'm usually not a phone person. I prefer writing mails, which allows me not having to worry if I am bothering or interrupting the person I call or not. Since my friends and I haven't had a chance to meet and chat for such a long time, we talked for quite a while on the phone. I love that so much. It feels like being connected again, being taken care for and of, and getting to know each other more. People grow, and things change. we can't expect a person we knew would stay forever just like that when we met last time. Everybody leads a different life, so every detail in my friend's daily life is always interesting to me. I'm so glad that I have a change to have a long and happy talk with some of you guys. Thanks for sharing. Old friends are always the best.

  • 密碼文章 HBO

A good thing about our dorm is that we have cable TV channels. In EVERY room. And the best thing about it is that we have HBO. Free. I know it's hard to imagine in Taiwan that you have to pay for movie channels. That's why I haven't watched HBO for like two years. I really hated that the first year here. 'Cause I was too free, and I wanted to watch Sex and the City (believe me, I haven't watched most of them yet) and Six Feet Under so badly.

But now, I have free HBO to watch, but I have no time. In order not to waste the money I paid for the rent (ha ha, excuses), recently I decide that even though I don't have time to watch movies on HBO, it's still my "duty" to record them down. So I am starting to record tons of interesting movies like crazy these days...

(It's still a pity that I can't watch food network here anymore. I miss all the interesting and funny chefs and mouth-watering scenes of food and cooking...
