big brother jing jing is still watching....

Remember the when I wrote about the Great fireWall of China? I came across a blog today that said it had been blocked in China, and then I googled "blog ban China" and found a ton of blogs about this... like this one, and then I found a website where you can test and see which websites are banned in China. Including? Yours truly. Weeeeeeeird.

(Click to enlarge.) In other news... I had a fantastic day. I got to sleep late, and then I got to spend some time with Angela, and that time involved retail therapy and ice cream, helllooooo! Then I kicked ass and took names at yoga and now I have a plate full of Thai food and some TV to catch up on.

Oh, and also? My AC gets turned on tomorrow.

Life is good.

I live in an old building (single-cylinder? something?) so even though I have control of my thermostat, I don't have control over when it gets switched from heat to air.

I try to deal with it and not complain because my landlord pays the bill, which in Texas, calculates to probably $1000-$1200/year... but it's been really warm this week. I'm stoked to get the AC tomorrow.

i've DEVOURED the first two volumes of Alichino, which is about these beautiful creatures that grant wishes to humans, but demand equal payment in return...the artwork in it is superb. i have to limit myself to one chapter a night or i'll read the whole thing in an evening (not a WHOLE lot happens, i will admit). usually i read each chapter twice, once to see what happens, and another to go back and look closer at the art....seriously, i haven't seen another one that is done as beautifully. i just bought the third volume of it, and the first volumes of Arcana (about a girl who can speak to the animals), and Pet Shop of Horrors (which is about animals purchased from a pet store that are somehow dangerous or's a bunch of short stories about each adopted animal).

i bought my first couple at Borders at ten bucks a pop...but i've since gotten more frugal and bought the others online, amazon has pretty good prices.

Hey man, I went to the Chinese URL to check if something was blocked. It occurred to me that they were locking all the URLs we put in there as they go in. So all I checked was It said checking...then it showed a link going from Australia to somewhere else and then it said 'You're URL is Blocked" How rude. Theya re just blocking everyone who goes in.
