i went to work this morning in a sullen mood for some reason. normally i stand outside the bus and greet people as they arrive at the stop, but today i climbed directly aboard the bus, didn't feel like talking with anyone. once we were safely on our way, i slipped on my earbuds and drowned myself in music for the 25 minutes it takes for us to arrive at the office.
i felt a little better after another cohosting meeting. then in the afternoon xianglian invited me outside to stand in the sun with another one of her coworkers. we were chatting about cell phones, both of them telling me that they'd never get a chinese brand phone because they break all the time. coincidentally, that was exactly when my chinese brand phone arrived. lihui went out to pick it up and handed it to me before going inside.

* sitting next to zengfei on the bus (she seemed genuinely concerned that i wouldn't be able to take photos if i was also cohosting; not sure when i told i was a part of the new year ceremony, and don't know how she knew i was a photo guy (other than seeing me with a camera during the sports meet).
xianglian asked me twice on the bus about what i was having for dinner. maybe she was fishing for a dinner invitation, but i was busy talking with zengfei, and besides, i was going to ancient changshou after work.
