I bought myself a little something.

The world has gotten this much smaller. For a small purchase of 79 Yuan (that's about $12), Amazon China will deliver to your door. It's opened up a whole new world of food opportunities. It's a little bit surprising which foods can be bought in China.
Shopping on Amazon.cn is almost exactly like shopping on Amazon.com, and Google Translate works really well on Chinese, so I tried a sample purchase just to see if it would work. So now I have some pretzel bites, Cheezy Doritos and some other snacks for the long winter months.
It is really, really nice to be able to buy Cheezy Doritos online, but I also feel like being able to buy some of these things that I thought I would NEVER have in China makes me a little sad that I'm moving past the "just getting by" stage into the "I know how this works" stage. It may be more comfortable, but perhaps a little less thrilling.
I'll contemplate that while I'm munching on my microwave popcorn.
