things about me
awhile ago, i listed thing i do that make me an oddity. see post title "staring contest with my coffee." consider this post sort of a sequel.
things people don't know about me:
i have freckles on my nose, but you have to lean in to see them. i don't cover them up and like being a little asian girl with a scattering of freckles.
i have a scar on my neck. i tell people it was from a knife fight in chinatown, but that isn't the real reason...or is it?!
i forget that i have a tattoo. i got my tattoo at a biker bar in baltimore. they had dentist chairs set up and wyett earp was playing on the television as the needle went in me. also, when getting a tattoo on one's back, there is no need to remove one's pants. the tattoo guy tried to tell me differently. nice try. pants stay on! ridiculous.
i roll my eyes a lot in response to people. i do this even when i am on the phone, responding to emails, etc. i don't know why i do this since i don't do this in person.
raisins freak me out. they are little and wrinkly and just give me the creeps.
i still get nightmares from watching horror movies.
i'm known as the "nice" one among my circle of friends. although i don't think i am always that nice. perhaps my friends are just really mean?!
i still write fan mail to artists and writers that i adore. my first fan letter was to william shatner.
when i was little, i hated my nose and tried to pinch it everyday so it wouldn't look so "asian."
my ears are really small.
upon graduating law school, i had to take out all my piercings. anyways, nobody wants a lawyer in tats and piercings, right? haha. law school was fun. haha. i also sported red hair, purple and blonde. i have long accepted my black hair is fine just the way it is. :)
while in lawschool, was approached by 2 model scouts, who told me i would be better as a model than a lawyer. way to encourage huh?
i can't stand the taste of tequila.
i prefer white wine over red.
the way to get on my good side is through mini black and white cookies. truth.
when i go to a restaurant, i always look at the dessert section first. this determines if i want to stay for dinner. dessert is what i look forward to. it's like the prize at the end of the maze. no prize? no pearly at your restaurant.
i have never asked a guy out.
when i was little, i picked dandelions and was made fun of by people who told me it was a weed and not a flower. i like dandelions and think a handful of dandelions is still pretty.
the smell of pho makes me cringe. the traditional beef pho that is.
i'll see an action or horror flick over a romantic comedy any day.
i still use a bookmark when reading. my bookmark has a picture of an owl.
i carry bandaids with me because i am accident prone.
my family and i never took any family vacations/trips together when i was younger because we couldn't afford it. instead, my sister and i would create adventures in our living room and my parents would rent kung fus and we would watch them and act out fight scenes.
when i was in high school, i wrote a play.
when i was in high school, my monthly comic strip was banned by the parents association and the asian american club.
i tend to call people dude way too much.
i practice scowling.
my sister's nickname for me is ghostie.
i hate social climbers.
i eat indian food and korean food more than once a week.
i love to dance, but for the life cannot dance to hip hop or rap music, yet i am happy as a clam listening to wu tang in my office.
i can't make jello.
i still have the tapes of all the bands i used to play in.
secretly, i want hulk slippers.
i clip coupons.
my friends and i tend to wave hello/goodbye with both hands.
certain songs remind me of certain people, situations and moods.
certain cities remind me of certain people, situations, and moods.
i am surprised when people comment on my blog/thoughts.
my girls and i wrote and recorded a rap song.
i made "i heart pearl" shirts in boston and gave them to my friends and boys.
i always wear perfume.
when i am with my friends, i feel like we are invincible and can conquer this dirty city we call home.
i have never been mad at any of my best friends.
i am really into fonts.
i'm left handed.
i think tomato and toast and gus and sailor are cute nicknames for people.
i know the entire rap song X gonna give it to ya by DMX.
