Q: Are you ready for the typhoon?

For all our friends in the south there is a massive Typhoon heading your way.
expected to hit Taiwan and the Chinese mainland tomorrow.

I am going to miss out. I am aware how typhoons severely influence peoples lives, but for me I see it as fresh air and a chance to take the dog for a walk without any people on the street. See if I care my underwear gets soaked. We have storms back home to, so a bit of wind doesn't bother me..... YEAH thousands of years of history... go vikings (not the sportsball team)

Yes, I am! ... always ready! 

 

My School was closed this afternoon, and following Mon. and Tue., I have last two days of classes in this term.

I am free of work for half of this week, but 'Taiwan t.' isn't the cause. My chaps have an 'end of the year' exams next week.

 

After Tue, I am heading for short jump to HK, and then 'Sagarmatha'....

That's Nepalese. Did I tell you, I'm several-lingual.....

Why close well before the Typhoon hits? I never get that about China. One training school was closed 2 days before a Typhoon was expected to hit but then it was open on the day of the Typhoon.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
