Hi, all, and welcome back to the original yet new-fangled China Saloon. I'm Con, known variously as Con Ate Dog and Con's Fly Is Open. I've been in China about 3 years now, yet speak the language very poorly. I recently quit smoking, and it's making me mean.
I'm 39, Canadian, lived most of my life in Calgary, majored in English, and have spent years as a production worker, landscaper and technical writer. I have a brother whom I can't convince to move out here.
My goals this year are to repair my teeth, publish at least 3 articles, write a novel and have sex with a woman who is taller than I am. The latter, given that I live in China, seems unlikely.
Enough talk. Shooters!
