The Best Week Ever! (Happy Chinese New Year 2018)

Wine glass in hand. Music blasting. Candles are lit (both real ones and fake LED ones). "Rich People Problems" by Kevin Kwan is sitting on my desk... and it's the New Year (year of the Dog. Both my Dutch bro and papa are born in the year of the dog)! Not just that -- it's …
