July 4-10, 2009

(Friday 12:45 a.m. in L.A., Friday 3:45 p.m. in Shenzhen.)

This week I wrapped up some obligations in Shenzhen and hopped a flight for a ten-day trip to L.A. So most of the time I've been massively busy, but the website keeps ticking along (mostly without me, thanks to Scheduled Posts).

Hopefully, I'll see friends and Lila's family starting this weekend.
