How Asian Are you?

Image
You think you�re Asian, but your not quite there. You are a Pacific Islander (or at least at heart). You are heavily influenced by Asian culture and you look slightly more Asian than anything else. But you are too dark skinned to be Asians. You see, true Asians are racist and look down on dark skin. You are not only stepped on by fellow Asians, but also the white man. Of all the Asian countries, you were the most taken over and beat down by western white men through out history. As a result, you have lost many of your Asian values. Like taking your shoes off before going inside your house. You have also most likely lost most of your God given skills and talents, such as using chopsticks. Not only are you not fully Asian, you are not fully westernized either. Filipino people for example use a fork and spoon. Not even a knife! This is most likely why pacific islanders identify better with black or latino people than they do with other asians and even white people.

How true

Another Win

have you noticed that I only post my wins and not my losses? heheheheheThis was one of the closest games I have ever played. But the stakes were pretty high.

First Haircut EVER!

Image
Joy and Ro. Ro rocks when it comes to cutting curly hair and Joy behaved BEAUTIFULLY for her.Joy's been asking for a haircut for almost a year now. being my baby and having such gorgeous, curly, soft hair I wasn't too keen on it. But, I know what it's like to be tender-headed and have tangles that take FOREVA to get out, so I thought shoulder-length would be OK.My hyperactive child sat perfectly still while she got her hair done.The finished product!!!  Joy has a natural side part and one side is fluffier (thicker/fuller) than the other already, but Joy liked it. Later in the day we bought some hair things, so now she can wear a ponytail that she does herself, and headbands. She was so happy to be able to brush all the way through her hair with no tangles.Yup, that's all hers. Not quite as much as when Josh gets a haircut, but her hair isn't that thick yet.

FW: how to start a fight

HOW TO START A FIGHT
There I was on my way to work ... Getting into a fight was the farthest thing from my mind ... Wasn't even on the horizon ... I was in a great mood ...
And then - I rear-ended the car in front of me.
So there we are alongside the road and slowly the driver gets out of the car ... (and you know how you just get SOOO stressed that stuff seems to get funny)?
Yeah, well, I could NOT believe it ... He was a DWARF!
He storms over to my car, looks up at me and says, 'I AM NOT HAPPY!'
So, I look down at him and say, 'Well, then which one are you?'
. . . And that's when the fight started . .

A nice frosty, cold caramel mocha frapp. I took the picture on the spur of the moment when I saw today's PF topic.

WOW, how time flies

I was just cleaning out my inbox and clicked on "oldest". I still had my first Gmail email ... dated Sat, Apr 24, 2004 at 11:23 PM.

I've had gmail for 4 years. It doesn't seem that long. 4 years ago they only offered 1GB of storage, and even though I have over 5000 pieces of mail in "All Mail" I am still no where near that 1GB mark, which is now up to 6633 MB. Whatever shall I do with all that space?

Noah 2008

Subject: Fw: Noah 2008--very clever

Noah in 2008

In the year 2008, the Lord came unto Noah, who was now living in the
United States, and said, "Once again, the earth has become wicked and
over-populated, and I see the end of all flesh before me.

Build another Ark and save 2 of every living thing along with a few good
humans"

He gave Noah the blueprints, saying, "You have 6 months to build the Ark
before I will start the unending rain for 40 days and 40 nights."

Six months later, the Lord looked down and saw Noah weeping in his yard
- but no Ark.

"Noah!" He roared, "I'm about to start the rain! Where is the Ark?"

"Forgive me, Lord," begged Noah, "but things have changed. I needed a
building permit. I've been arguing with the inspector about the need for
a sprinkler system. My neighbors claim that I've violated the
neighborhood zoning laws by building the Ark in my yard and exceeding

The Casting

Image
Josh is so funny, he got the splint off and washed his arm, trying to get the stink off. He dried it before the nurse put on the first layer of the cast, but it might have been a little wet because as soon as we left the doctor, he was like "I have an itch, right in the middle"

We got some Boba and food at a Chinese restaurant and on the way home and he snagged some extra chopsticks.

New use for single chopsticks, they are the perfect size for sliding into a cast and getting at that itch. And yes, he picked green.


Jumped on the bandwagon

Josh update

Cheesentoast (aka Sara T.) asked if Josh was OK. My response:

He's got his appetite back. Does that count as better? Currently he has forgotten the pain in his arm as he rummages through the groceries I just bought.

He broke his left arm just above the wrist trying to catch air off a bowl (his words, not mine. Skateboardese is a whole new language to me).

Who wants to see the x-ray?

Remembering James M. Wood

Some interesting Los Angeles history

Sent to you by 'Nette via Google Reader: Remembering James M. Wood via LAist by Mr. Los Angeles on 4/8/08

Photo via Sha in LA's James M. Wood Blvd. Walk on FlickrIn Los Angeles, there are some important streets named for some important people. Beaudry, Wilcox, Van Nuys, Lankershim, Wilshire, Micheltorena, and hundreds of others named for leaders, developers, owners, and others. But, in Los Angeles, there are streets that have been changed in honor of an individual. Santa Barbara Avenue in South Los Angeles was changed to honor civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in 1982 and Brooklyn Avenue & Macy Street were changed in 1993 to honor civil rights leader Cesar Chavez. Tom Bradley had a section of First Street named concurrently in his honor in 2001. These are the most recent street name changes of major lengths. (Yes, Chick Hearn Court was also changed from Eleventh Street, and Johnnie Cochran Vista was named just last year from…

I spent a lot of time near this landmark in L.A. as a kid, mostly at USC and Exposition Park. I wish I could have snapped a shot of the airplane outside the aerospace museum.

YouTube - Carrie Underwood and Rascal Flatts god bless the broken road

It's been a Rascall Flatts kind of afternoon. Went looking to tweet God Bless the Broken Road and came across this duet of Carrie and RF. Simply awesome.

They have a podcast. We saw them at OMSI when the Star Wars exhibit was there.

Joy was actually a little afraid of the Jawas (twin boys I found out later)


and was quite fond of Darth.

i expected more food

It was a Healthy Choice new steamer meal. Beef in whiskey sauce. Tasty, but I would have liked a little more. That is indeed the amount in the bowl before I took my first bite.

For all you Star Wars fans

A Different Point of View by TD-0013
Science Fiction

EXPLICIT: Adult oriented themes, language and situations

Recently re-mastered with all around better quality sound and production!!

Originally aired as a segment for Michael and Evo's Wingin' It! podcast, A Different Point of View is a series of essays about the Star Wars Universe as seen through the eyes of lowly sandtrooper, TD-0013. It takes everything you thought you knew about the Star Wars saga and flips it around to expose the ugly underbelly of the Rebellion, The Jedi, and everything else.

A Different Point of View has rapidly become one of the most popular segments on Wingin' It!, and if you've missed any, now is your chance to catch up on them and find out why TD-0013 is everyone's favorite Stormtrooper. You also might just end up being one of the many who've discovered that the Empire were the "good guys" all along.

Are you ready for some more gore? I did a little arm-twisting on Scott Sigler and managed to convince him to give Podiobooks.com the exclusive release of Infected, his re-worked and re-edited serialized free audiobook. Well… exclusive for three days. Then it’s also available on his site. Across America a mysterious disease is turning ordinary people into raving, paranoid murderers who inflict brutal horrors on strangers, themselves, and even their own families.Working under the government’s shroud of secrecy, CIA operative Dew Phillips crisscrosses the country trying in vain to capture a live victim. With only decomposing corpses for clues, CDC epidemiologist Margaret Montoya races to analyze the science behind this deadly contagion. She discovers that these killers all have one thing in common - they’ve been contaminated by a bioengineered parasite, …
