I’ve never used Skype, and neither has Miss. P, but apparently that’s how we’re being interviewed for a position at the Higher Normal School (or something along those lines) in Nanjing (pronounced NAWN-JING). We’re both hoping that this interview is successful and results in us getting a job offer or two. Missy is interviewing tonight, and I’ll be interviewing on Wednesday, thanks to my job schedule.

In addition to this, I’m supposed to get a call from a school in Xi’an (pronounced SHE-AWN), one of the older cities in China. We also have a guy in Lianyungang (pronounced LEE-AHN-YEN-GAHNG, so far as I can tell) which is a city close to Nanjing and Shanghai. Xi’an is further west; probably the equivalent of living in Kansas City to Shanghai’s Richmond, Va. Anyway, hopefully we’ll have an offer this week. Wish us luck.

Until then we have lots of little errands to get done – phone calls, selling stuff, disconnecting stuff, etc… – and my parents will be in town the weekend of the fourth to pick up some furniture and junk I want to keep but see no reason to take with me (lots of band memorabilia, some books,  pictures of Vin Diesel with his shirt off, etc…). After that, we’ll need to work on shipping out some of her stuff and painting my floor (don’t ask) among other fun moving-related projects.

Six weeks!

Aunt Gingy

Aunt Gingy will be docked in Shanghai on March 29 & 30, 20010. I know I’ll not be finding you guys, so maybe you can find the ship Nautica (Oceania cruise ship)

We’ve already told the schools that my aunt is coming in March and that we’ll need to take a few days off. I can’t WAIT to see you and show off my mandarin (hopefully.)

I just walked up on Skype conversation earlier today. It sounded pretty legit for using a phone halfway across the world.
