Back In Town

This post appears both at China Trippin' and 'you don't have to read.'
 
Hello from Seoul, Korea.  I will be back in the big 206 about 24 hours from now.
 
I hope you all have been enjoying my China Trippin' posts over the last few months.  In case you haven't heard the big news, I have resigned my job at the Jesuit high school, where I've taught for the past eight years.  I have accepted an offer from Praxis Language in Shanghai, China to be an academic content director at SpanishSense.com.  I'm very excited about the job, and happy I get to be in China to continue working on Mandarin.
 
So I have decided to put both 'you don't have to read' and China Trippin' to bed, and start a new blog as I start a new chapter in my life.  I'm especially sad to let go of 'you don't have to read', but alas, the Chinese government blocks blogspot blogs, so I figure that this is as good a time as any to start over with a new platform. 
 
Of course, the new blog needs a new name.  Here are some of my thoughts, let me know in the comments if you like one in particular, or if you have any other suggestions.
 
Shanghai Pie
Deng yi xia! (Just a second!)
Kuai yi dian er! (Hurry up!)
Zhili hao.  (Here's good.)
JP's Adventures in Grammar
Ex-patria, Unum
 
There will be more suggestions:  I gotta go.  Someone is vaccuming and I can't concentrate on thinking of new names.

I think your new blog title should allude to your superpowers in the areas of linguistics and public transit courage.

Deng yi xia! sounds like a good one.
