Absolutely Not Your Monkey

All is not perfect in paradise: I’ve got a new nei…

All is not perfect in paradise: I’ve got a new neighbor now that the room next door has rented out. Unfortunately, it was rented to a rather annoying individual who enjoys blasting sappy Taiwanese TV programs at top volume with the hallway door wide open at one o’clock in the a.m. The walls of my building seems to be fairly good at absorbing sound, but with their door open the TV sounds like it’s in the same room if you’re in the hallway. So much for peace and quiet. I really wasn’t in the mood for that shit last night, especially since I was looking forward to a good night’s rest after receiving yet another round of rejections of the Damn Book. This is nothing unusual, of course, but it smarts a little more when these are those rare publishers who have expressed an actual desire to see the manuscript, read it, and then rejected it. In the meantime, I watch my friends publish more and more books and wonder if either the garbage bag/vanity press is the only place for my obviously uninteresting tale.

Ah, well, just another reminder that the world doesn’t give a shit about anything that happens in Taiwan. “Oh, you live in Taiwan? I love Thai food!”

Methinks it’s time to change the video of the week, since the current one’s been up for over a week. Better download it now if you want to see it. Also, if there’s anything in particular in Taiwan you want to see and you think I’ll be stupid enough to film it for you, let me know and I’ll either laugh in your face or actually be stupid enough to film it for you. Ya never know.
