I should be packing for my Texas State trip, but instead, another list.
"Random things that tell me the world is too absurd and ridiculous for you not to be in love with it":
-The amount of enjoyment my aunt gets from watching According to Jim. A tiny 60 year-old Chinese woman with curlers in her hair laughing out loud to a sitcom starring Jim Belushi. Check that--a really bad sitcom starring Jim Belushi.
-Flirting with the greeter outside an Italian restaurant in North Beach.
-Having the burly owner come out and ask me--gruffly, of course--"You wanna job or somethin'? Well, we're not hiring."
-The older guy on the planeride back from NYC wearing a floatie-looking thing around his neck meant to keep his head upright, or draw ridicule from other passengers.
-The rejection letter--I mean, rejection email--I received from the University of Washington.
-The email I wanted to send them in response:
Whatevs. Got into Columbia. Wouldn't have gone anyway.
J-dizzle no longer your nizzle
-Oh, and posing for this picture:
Any more questions on what I did in New York?
