Nov. 4th, 2005 @ 10:00 am Is Maureen Dowd Neccessary
There are times when Slate.com is so dead on that I squeal when I read their articles. It isn't the kind of "I'm better than you are" tone of The New Republic or the dry blathering of the New Yorker (sometimes). I'm sure everyone's been reading over the virtual anointing of Maureen Dowd in the past two weeks, with the New York magazine profile and what not. I would suggest reading the NYtimes article first, then the New York Mag converage, and then reading this fantastic Slate article.

I think I have a sty. It's really freaking me out. In addition, Russian Alex told me to start writing my dreams down which means that I did after I woke from my nappers today. I dreamt I had a minature Matthew Barney penis growing in my belly-button and I freaked out (minature penises usually tend to make people freak out). I am still disturbed. Do I want to be a man? Do I have an appendage of manhood that I'm uncomfortable with? Suggestions would be great.

Shesh, let's spread the self-conscious display of friendship awareness:

For i_kid

1. Reply with your name and I'll respond with something random about you.
2. I'll tell you what song/movie reminds me of you.
3. I'll pick a flavor of jello to wrestle with you in.
4. I'll say something that only makes sense to you and me.
5. I'll tell you my first memory of you.
6. I'll tell you what animal you remind me of.
7. I'll ask you something that I've always wondered about you.
8. If I do this for you, you must post this on your journal. You MUST. It is written

--- My answers
1. Recent bloody eyes
2. Annie Hall and then Avril Lavigne's "Complicated." I sometimes like to imagine you and then listen/watch these two items simultaneously. Dead serious.
3. Blue Smurf
4. Christians I drink, Muslims you drink.
5. When Karen introduced you as "Spatule" and I was confused.
6. A duck with really soft hair.
7. Why you never understood why I liked something something about you.

U of C and Hooters?

While watching a swimsuit competition, what is the most amazing thing to happen? Finding a U of C graduate and premed who qualified. I WAS in SHOCKERS and was really rooting for her to win. Why isn't this on the University of Chicago Alum News?

Why does this strangely work for mainlanders?

You know you're "Taiwanese" if...
You look like you are 18. (WTF? I'm the oldest looking Asian I know. Stopid GM foods of america)
You like to eat chicken feet.(I believe they are called "Phoenix feet")
You suck on fish heads and fish fins.(I stopped when I was eight)
You have a Chinese knick-knack hanging on your rear view mirror.
You sing Karaoke. (and kick ass at it)
Your house is covered with tile. (my parents just spent two weeks tiling their entire house. I felt like I was in a sanitarium, for germaphobes)
Your kitchen is covered by a sticky film of grease.
Your stove is covered with aluminum foil. (my parents actually have one of those electric sealed ranges. They are soooo progressive)
You leave the plastic covers on your remote control. (on all five)
You've never kissed your mom or dad.
You've never hugged your mom or dad. (a moment of weakness on my father's part, I believe)
Your unassisted vision is worse than 20/500. (I'm legally blind without my glasses)
You wear contacts, to avoid wearing your "coke bottle glasses".
You've worn glasses since you were in fifth grade. (Word. Straight up third grade)
Your hair sticks up when you wake up.

You love to use coupons. (I like never have the time to clip)
You drive around looking for the cheapest petrol.
You drive around for hours looking for the best parking space.
You take showers at night.
You avoid the non-free snacks in hotel rooms. (those mini-bar prices are killer!)
You don't mind squeezing 20 people into one motel room. (It's how my father made it through graduate school)
Most girls have more body hair than you, if you are male.
You tap the table when someone pours tea for you. (Isn't this more of a catonese/hong kong thingie?)
You say "Apia!" and "Wash!" frequently.
You don't want to wear your seat belt because it is uncomfortable.
You love Las Vegas, slot machines, and blackjack. (yeah, but it's just the thrill of winning and the pulse of excitement)
You unwrap Christmas gifts very carefully, so you can reuse the paper. (no, but my mother does)
You only buy Christmas cards after Christmas, when they are 50% off. (I totally love getting Christmas cards on my birthday from Mom)
You have a vinyl table cloth on your kitchen table. (Again, the parents have moved to cloth .)
You spit bones and other food scraps on the table. (That's why you need the vinyl tablecloth). (or you could have specific spitting plates for bones, duh)
You have stuff in the freezer since the beginning of time.
You use the dishwasher as a dish rack.
You have never used your dishwasher. ("Si-Da, when we come to America, we were poor and unfortunate. Americans are lazy and fatty and that is why we don't use the dishwasher)
You keep a Thermos of hot water available at all times. (it's a cure-all)
You eat all meals in the kitchen.
You save grocery bags, tin foil, and tin containers. (It's just practical)
You have a piano in your living room (but we did have a Casio Musicmaster 200 Keyboard)
You pick your teeth at the dinner table (but you cover your mouth).
You twirl your pen around your fingers. (but I learned it from all the other cool nerds)
You hate to waste food. (Katherine?)
You have Tupperware in your fridge with three bites of rice or one leftover chicken wing. (I thought this was a girl thing)
You don't own any real Tupperware - only a cupboard full of used but carefully rinsed margarine tubs, takeout containers, and jam jars.
You also use the jam jars as drinking glasses.
You have a collection of miniature shampoo bottles that you take every time you stay in a hotel. (awww, memories of mummy)
You carry a stash of your own food whenever you travel (travel means any car ride longer than 15 minutes). These snacks are always dried and include dried plums, mango, ginger, and squid. (Once, Joanna's father gave me a bag of dried cuttlefish because the entire Slotkin clan had already passed out from the smell. I was happily munching for the next ten minutes while Jo looked at me in a mixture of horror and fascination)

Your dad thinks he can fix everything himself. (but he DOES)

You don't use measuring cups.

You have a teacup with a cover on it.
You always look phone numbers up in the phone book, since calling information costs 50 cents.

You love Chinese Martial Arts films.

If you don't live at home, when your parents call, they ask if you've eaten, even if it's midnight.
When you're sick, your parents tell you not to eat fried foods or baked goods due to yeet hay.
You know what yeet hay is.
You e-mail your Chinese friends at work, even though you only 10 feet apart.
You use a face cloth. (it's good for exfoliation)
You starve yourself before going to all you can eat places.
You know someone who can get you a good deal on jewelry or electronics.
You save your old Coke bottle glasses even though you're never going to use them again. (Someday, I will harness the power of the sun.)
You own your own meat cleaver and sharpen it. (but my white roomates use it more than I)
Your toothpaste tubes are all squeezed paper-thin.
You know what moon cakes are. (tastee)
When there is a sale on toilet paper, you buy 100 rolls and store them in your closet or in the bedroom of an adult child who has moved out.
Your parents know how to launch nasal projectiles.
You iron your own shirts.
You play a musical instrument. (Piano and violin. I was actually TRYING to fit my stereotype)
Even if you're totally full, if someone says they're going to throw away the leftovers on the table, you'll finish them.
You've eaten a red bean popsicle. (so much better than tastee-delight)

You fight over who pays the dinner bill.
You majored in something practical like engineering, medicine or law.

You don't tip more than 10% at a restaurant, and if you do, you tip Chinese delivery guys/waiters more.
You have acquired a taste for bitter melon. (es aight)
You eat every last grain of rice in your bowl, but don't eat the last piece of food on the table. (I believe the saying goes that every grain of rice you leave in your bowl will be a freckle on the face of your future spouse. I'm marrying an irishmen.)
You know why there are 88 reasons.
You see the truth in this and then send it to all your Chinese friends.
