The recycling here is intense. I was going to go into a long explanation about how the system works...but it's just a lot easier to show you. And then I was going to video tomorrows garbage pick up, but I figured some other foreigner had already done so, so I checked youtube and voila! laugh out loud

Taiwan trash pick up

The difference between the video and my town is the trash truck stops right outside my door, so I don't have to walk down the street with bags of garbage in tow. Also my recycle truck is pink, follows right behind the garbage truck, and plays its own song(so there are two very loud, different songs playing at the same time...oh so enjoyable!) laugh out loudlaugh out loud

ETA: also forgot to mention, my town is smaller, so the trucks don't stay in one spot that long since there aren't as many people who need to get rid of garbage. They basically stop for about ten seconds, folks run up, toss in the bags, and the truck takes off. They don't stop on the side, they stop in the street, holding up traffic, which was why the motorists stuck behind the garbage truck were irritated at my incompetence! I almost wish I lived in the larger town! eh, not really. hamster dance

Well, have to rant, but didn't want to do it on facebook because my Chinese friends will just laugh at me. red face First, a tip of the hat and pat on the back to this great country for their recycling program, the streets are a lot cleaner now than when I was here as a kid. They really are doing a remarkable job. way to goapplause
Now for my rant. I had a lapse of memory and placed some recyclable items in the garbage bag and handed it off to the garbage man, who noticed said items and handed the bag back to me. He didn't allow me to remove the items and hand the garbage back to him as the entire bag had been tainted with recyclable items. confused Le sigh, poor me, embarrassed in front of the neighbors (who were smirking) and the motorists (who were irritated at the holdup). cryred face
I had visions of revenge floating through my head, but then I watched a couple of episodes of Malcolm in the Middle and lo and behold one of the episodes was about their feud with their garbage man.... shock **Note to self - the garbage man will always win! laugh out loudnaughtylaugh out loud

I'm going to go look at a new place tomorrow. It looks good on the web page, I'll see how it looks in real life. Hopefully it'll be good enough for what I'm looking for. big grin

I've been really busy lately (as usual), but have a few moments free so thought I'd pop in here. big grin

Hooray for Mack's adoption! partypartyhamster dance

Cash is adorable! cloud 9 blue dog

Tasha is doing well, except I'm going to have to give her a swimming pool or trim her fur.. the weather is getting muggy. It's going from wet and cold to wet and hot. Today it is cloudy and cool - so far. There is moss growing on the back patio (it's rough concrete), so I have to figure a way to clean it. confused Or I could let it grow until it looks like I have a yard with grass! laugh out loud

I'm having a huge issue with mold. It's growing everywhere on the second floor (don't know why the other floors aren't affected), it's on the bookcases, the walls, everywhere. I have to wipe everything down with bleach water at least once a week. So annoying. Also having a problem with the walls and floors on the 1st and 2nd floors "sweating". They're just dripping with condensation. Had to put up a warning sign on the front door because of it, I almost slipped myself several times. confused Going to get a dehumidifier to help combat that.

Had a nightmare a couple of nights ago. I don't normally remember dreams, good or bad, but this one I remembered so I decided to use it as writing practice. I have half of it written now. My dream was really short, but the story I'm writing based on it is much longer! laugh out loud

Hope everyone has a good day! wave

I've been staying busy lately so haven't been around much. Tasha made a new friend, his name is Abu, a nine year old Golden Retriever. She loves playing with him. She also made an frenemy...heh...there's a Boxer that wanders onto the beach every once in awhile and he has determined that Tasha is his best friend in the whole world. Problem is, Tasha doesn't agree! Usually she loves to play with every dog she meets, but for some odd reason, she reallllly doesn't care for this dog! I have no idea why. shrug

Yesterday I took a few pictures of Tasha, Abu, and the Boxer, but while Tasha wanted to play with Abu, the Boxer also wanted to play, which made Tasha irritated and she just kept coming back to me and whining, then would slowly walk towards the steps to go home. But I would tell her no and try to get her to go play, but I finally gave in and we went home. confused

Today Abu wasn't there but the Boxer was, so I filmed Tasha trying to avoid him, which was hard because she kept coming back to me and waiting at my side. So it was just bits and pieces that I cobbled together. Then I uploaded it to photobucket but now the quality is horrible for some reason, but I waited a long time to upload it, so I'm going to link to it anyway. cry Man I feel grumpy...just like Tasha... silenced

Tasha's annoying friend


Oh, and here's Abu:
Tasha running away from the Boxer, poor Abu is alone

Abu sniffing alone because Tasha and the Boxer are arguing

wave Hi all! wave

I am not jealous of any of you with snowy weather! I can barely handle what we've had so far this year! (not that coldred face) When I left on Monday to spend a week with my parents, I could hardly believe my good luck in finally having a day with sun! It made the trip down much more enjoyable, especially since Tasha insisted on stopping frequently(she was just being bratty)! confused I would've been more upset with her if it had been cold and rainy. shh

Also went hiking with my dad today, which was fun. It was partly cloudy, so not too warm to hike, but we did have to put on our coats when we stopped to rest. When I called my mom to let her know our hike was over and we were heading back, she said it was pouring rain at their house! We didn't get a drop of rain while hiking. relieved

If you want to see pictures, I put them on the pupster site: Tasha's pictures

Flicka, I did look over the whole thing, minus the stuff it said I had to log in to see first. I was referring to the way the forums are set up. When on dogster I spend all my time on the forums(I highly prefer the way the forums are set up here), I don't go anywhere else(used to go to the magazine...and except for a quick glance at the "announcement" article, I haven't been there in a while). So, when I go to P4P, it will be the same, I'm just not drawn to any of the other things they or dogster has to offer. Not hating on it, just personal taste. Right now the forums at P4P look exactly the same as on pupster (except not pink, which is a HUGE plus in favor of P4P!! I know, I know it's for the holiday, but holy cow, it's a bit much!) wink I looked at all the things P4P has planned, and it does sound promising, but at this moment, I'm not compelled to sign up for it. shrug I'll continue to wait and see.

Well, I have one week off of school, so I'm going down to spend some time with my parents. Tasha will be happy! big grin Poor Dusty is having medical issues, so he's not a happy camper right now. Alvin is going stir crazy since he's been in his cage for much too long. Ever since the Chinese New Years, I've had to keep the rabbits inside because of the constant stream of firecrackers going off (no, not the pretty ones-the super loud scare-off-the-ghosts ones) and now the back neighbors are remodeling the house, and since it's made of concrete the tools of the trade include jackhammers and sledge hammers. Even inside the noise can be deafening. Since Alvin and Dusty no longer get along, they can't be out of their cages at the same time, and not at all when I'm not home, so they're both grumpy. meditate

Ah well, a change of scenery should do us all some good! hamster dancedog walksnoopy

Your comment about the because we're "family", made me think of a mob family.... red face

As for the dogster forums not going away now...I'll wait and see what happens. confused I don't trust HQ anymore. shrug

I don't know what their real reason for their "change of heart" is, but if the forums stay over run with spambots (who aren't even trying to get our attention with real sentences anymore;kjhheagf) then I'm not coming back either... I'll just wait and see. Personally I really like what Tiller has planned, and if that happens, I'll scoot on over to that site. P4P sounds promising, but I'm going to wait on that as well(every time I glance in at it, it still looks like the same format as the pupster/kitster site and one of those is enough). thinking shrug
