So Full.  
Happy Thanksgiving! I'm really full. Turkey, ham, sausage, candied yams, salad, oyster omelette, chow fun, seafood stir fry, sushi, kimchi, pecan pie, pumpkin pie, granola pie, cheesecake, and oatmeal raisin cookies. Food coma.

Baby Got Back.  
Yay! My Passat has been repaired and returned! I missed my baby so much...

The Neenermobile is back in action! Well, after it gets an oil change.

Day of Discovery.  
Things I learned today:

1) The LA Clippers are really playing well! Just watched them beat the Lakers today. Quite an exciting game!

2) Peter Drucker, dubbed "The Man Who Invented Management" by BW, passed away. B-schoolers should recognize the name.

3) KOST 103.5 has started it's 24-hour Christmas music marathon that will continue until Christmas Day. This means I will not be listening to KOST, which usually serves as my pre-karaoke warmup and post-karaoke cooldown, until Christmas Day.

A Slow News Week.  
Not much going on. I haven't had a chance to go to the library, so I am rereading whatever old classics I can find at home. I enjoyed a passage in To Kill a Mockingbird where Jem equates good luck with "fried chicken when you're not lookin' for it." Ah, a boy after my own heart.

The Biggest Little Game in America.  
Yes, yes, as an SC alum, I am well aware that today SC defeated Cal. However, I would like to bring to your attention this article that proves that Williams College is not an all-women's school and does indeed have a football team. Today was the "Biggest Little Game in America," people! Go Ephs!

A History Lesson.  
Today is a very important day in American history. The veterans are important too, but I'm talking about something else. Today is the anniversary of the day I came to the United States. Lucky, lucky United States.

Insanity on the Slopes  
Check out this trailer for First Descent, a movie about snowboarding. The first part of the trailer is your standard X-Games fare, but keep watching for the very last shot. Insane.

A Poll, of Sorts  
I wanna know what you think. Take a look at this picture and complete the following sentence by choosing a letter.

That picture is...
a) Cute!
b) Gross!
c) All of the Above!
d) None of the Above!

Let me know. Thanks.

Disclaimer: You could probably open this at work, but not when anyone who currently has a good opinion of you is near your screen.

Too Much Time on My Hands  
Sure, just because I don't have a job yet, you all assume that I have too much time on my hands. Well, the truth is, I do. But not as much as the guys who made this video.

Make Yourself Heard  
Vote. Today.

If you're not registered yet, go to the Federal Election Commission page for forms and info for voter registration. You can't vote this time, but you'll be able to next time.

It's All Right There in Black and White  
Pandas are cute. Especially baby ones.

Watch the panda on the National Zoo's PandaCam.

Watch the panda walk in a Washington Post video clip. The reporter explains: "He's learning how to get his legs up to hold up that big fat belly of his." Hmm, sounds a little like me.

Caught In a Loop  
Lately I've been getting and sending a lot of emails with links to funny video clips...and oddly enough, the same videos keep being mentioned. It's like a weird email loop.

Odd. Well, here are the video clips I'm talking about:
Dancing Roommate - A roommate. Who dances. At the Air Force Academy.
I Want It That Way - If the Backstreet Boys ate nothing but rice.
Crazy Korean Karaoke - Korean schoolgirls sing and dance. And how!
MC Vikram - Hollaback if you're a Desi.

So Fresh and So Clean  
Jenny from the Block took me to this Asian-style spa in K-Town, and it was a very interesting experience. We both got the "milky scrub," which the spa describes as follows: "As you are basked in warm citrus milk, dry and dull skin is sloughed away with gentle strokes." What REALLY happens is that you get this milky water poured on top of you, and a Korean oba-san (mixing up my cultures here, but it's the best way I can think of to describe her) in a bikini puts on these mitts which must be made out of the same thing they make scouring pads out of and just works on your entire body with what aren't exactly "gentle" strokes. JFTB described it well when she said, "It was a pleasantly traumatic experience."

On the upside, I have never felt so clean, and my skin has never felt so soft. On the downside, I look all pink, thanks to being scrubbed raw.

Brain Rot and Tooth Decay  
I'm trying to read The Sound and the Fury by William Faulkner. It's tough. My brain can't process it.

Oh, I only got 5 trick-or-treaters on Halloween. Of course they all had to come when I was running around the house without a shirt on, sorting laundry. What perfect timing! So now I have a big bag of glow-in-the-dark fun-size Snickers. I guess I'm just going to have to eat them all so they don't go to waste.
