Hello LJ friends. I am durnk.

This Sunday instead of escaping up a mountain or out to the blue collar suburbs, I decided to trial run a bicycle commute to Shenzhen Bay area, which is where three of the four companies on my shortlist are located.



It is also a part of town where there are like, McLaren dealerships. And, obviously, where a huge number of foreigners congregate.

I biked to the seaside and then walked to the area where my new work might be. It's very generic and expensive but whatever. It's just work. I can bring a packed lunch.

Then I continued on to Shekou, which is the historical foreign enclave of Shenzhen.

There are a lot of white people here. It's very disconcerting.

I decided to head to the laowai bar which was my home when I first got to this city. The location has moved into a shopping mall because fuuuuck rich China. But it's basically the same. They play the same godawful classic rock. The punters are the same bunch of Brexit/Trump supporting douche canoes that make me weep for the future of the west.

But. Apparently the last time I was here I drunkenly recharged my membership card with a spectacular amount of money. So I am currently drinking for free and it's great.

I have not had a proper Sunday afternoon session since Berlin. Obviously the music here is much, much worse. But getting very fucking drunk on Sunday afternoon is a great antidote to the typical Sunday blues. I know I have to go to work tomorrow but I don't care. At all.

I miss this feeling.

[Berlin is the only place in the world that has real fucking proper rave parties on Sunday afternoon. Bars are okay, but I wish I could dance a bit to burn off all the carbs.]

It's a little embarrassing that the more you drink, the more classic rock and country sounds... well, no, it's still terrible. Tolerable. I feel like I am at a dive bar in America.

Phil Collins remains the best classic rock. I want to hit the drums. I want to hit ALL THE DRUMS.

And drive a Ferrari at night.

It's still day.

There's time.

Nice sounds like a good day.

I would want to sleep by the third beer.


Well guess what? I just finished downing a 22oz bottle of Lagunitas Imperial Stout. So this post was very timely for me. And yes, for the days of the Ferrari F40. Solo Phil Collins is...okay and also for the days when WMMR in Philadelphia would lampoon his schedule. I'm still a sucker for Peter Gabriel era Genesis though.

Buuuuuuut...yeah. No point to this reply at all, other than the first two sentences. So take it for what it's worth.
