I found the cutest website for moniter backgrounds. This guy, Vlad Gerasimov, from Russia creates these amazing backgrounds that apparently I can't find the right words to describe so here is a small picture of the one I'm using right now called "Google Library." Check it out!
In other news, I just found out that on top of the new clothes, hair cut, and clean house that you need to have to bring in Chinese New Year, you also have to have new money. When people send those little red envelopes full of money to their families, they can only be filled with brand new money. So today at work, one of our conference rooms was turned into a tiny little bank where everyone could (and did) trade in all of their money for brand spanking newly minted notes. I don't think I had ever seen that much cash in my entire life. It's really interesting to learn about all these cultural affinities that I missed growing up in the U.S., although it seems a little over the top obsessive with new-ness.
Tonight, I have my appointment to get my hair cut! Hopefully it will be nice and I won't be left with an awful mullet-like 'do. I will post pictures if I approve, if not then I'll leave you to your imagination!
