I am (was) having a glorious morning. The temperature has cooled off to a wonderful 66 degrees and I am sitting on the "front porch" of Starbuck's in Shekou, China, sipping my grande Christmas blend, enjoying the people, the weather, and the coffee. (oh, and a blueberry muffin). Anyway, I am the only one out here until a business man comes along and lights up a cigarette just upwind from me. Smoking has got to be the most rude, most ego-centric, most selfish habit on the face of the earth.
There. I'm finished with my rant and will get back to enjoying the morning.
