Here’s a good example of why you shouldn’t buy your parents a scanner for Christmas. They’ll go straight to the old shoebox that is stuffed full of old photos of you…and even if they want to be cute and fun, it will never end well….

给你举个很好的例子,告诉你为什么圣诞节不能送扫描仪给你父母。因为他们会立马把装满你旧照片的鞋盒翻出来…及时他们想找一些可爱有趣的照片,最后往往都不会……

Basketball!

My reaction: Oh, cool! A photo of when I was young!

我的回应:噢,酷!我小时候的照片!

Close up…

特写…

Look at those legs!

And then…

然后…

Fishfinger eyebrows?

My reaction: Oh! Another photo of when I was young! Cool!

我的回应: 噢!又是我小时候的照片!酷!

Another close up…

然后还是特写…

Note: Pre-oil spill BP t-shirt!

And then…

接着…

Erm....6-pack?

My reaction: Errrmm….Please tell me that I have a twin sister who you sent to the orphanage…

我的回应:呃…… 我是不是有个双胞胎姐姐被送到孤儿院去了…

I don’t think we need a close up of that one. Next year they’re getting socks.

我觉得这张就不要特写了。明年,我会送给他们袜子。

  1. Socks? Are you familiar with the phrase that mentions something about closing a barn door after a certain animal has bolted? You haven’t changed a bit apart from your fashion sense.


  2. Is that a homemade basketball hoop, using an aluminum ladder? Pretty ingenious if it is!

    And by the way, I think all of us have tried on a girls swimsuit and some point. Boys will be boys!


    • It certainly is! Good eye. The ladder was part of a scaffolding kit which I stole from my Dad (although ‘stole’ might be a bit strong, since he actually built the thing).


  3. Hi Oli! Happy New Year!
    I think you look great too! Haven’t changed a bit!
    Hope all is well in Shanghai! I miss it!

    • I’m not sure I’m comfortable with the number of people saying ‘nothing has changed’….Nice to hear from you too my Chinese class buddy! Hope you’re using your skills well!

  5. look at your hairstyle…


  6. Always makes me smile, seeing the things you post about yourself. I’ll encourage your parents to use that scanner more often.

    Let the good times role!


  7. The bikini top is fine but WHAT ON EARTH WERE YOU THINKING ABOUT WITH THOSE SHORTS..
