You should have a time penalty for misspelling: please add 24 hours to response time for each misspelling incident.
I’ve been promising myself I’d write up the process of making this three-tier wedding cake for Vivian and Julian’s upstate NY half-wedding, so even though it’s been well over a year now, it should still be worth documenting.
vivian: filipinos are great at combining the worst parts of being asian with the worst parts of being mexican
Vivian: it’s like the difference between MLK jr and black people today
: black people didn’t get civil rights by wearing their pants down to their knees
And gays aren’t going to get equal treatment by chasing straight men and screaming like little girls. PULL IT TOGETHER.
We need a good title for this series. The Asian Letters? For now, here’s part two (in response to part one).
Edit: I’m going to put this after the jump to keep my blog cleaner and a little less in-your-face personal – trying not to make my blog a diary. So, I’ll be posting these only on The Asian Letters from now on.
After a lengthy (for IM) but simplified explanation of regular expressions:
Vivian: wow that’s like filipino verb conjugation
The other half already blogged this, but I’m still giggling about it so here goes.
me: so i was reading some lost recap type things
and i realized that i am so not into this whole lost-ology shit
Vivian: ugh me neither
me: i mean i love lost
but i don’t know what they are talking about sometimes
Vivian: oh haha i don’t
me: it’s a good show
totally sucks you in
Vivian: i’m more interested in shows that are heavier on the philosophical allegories
rather than just twisty turny symbolism and suspense
me: ah i guess i had never thought about lost as a religious allegory
which is apparently what people keep talking about
like here this whole time i’ve been calling a character “dude in the black sweater”
but apparently the rest of the lost world has named him esau because his nemesis is jacob
that was a great book by the way
[about 10 seconds]
me: the bible?
Vivian: “jacob have i loved”
me: sorry i was totes confused
Vivian: i seriously LOL’d
me: hahahahahaha i did too
My piano review is in the works, I promise. I took the pictures and everything. However, first I had to finish this super slick (if I may say so myself) wedding website for the Asian and her man:
It even has online RSVP with administrative access! Try to top my wedding present now, other friends of V+J!
