I want to be a consumer whore, but the weather's not cooperating!


* cash a cheque that I got in the mail ten days ago, and get extra money too!
* finally mail Sarah's MGB CD out (might include an extra one since she had to wait so long... sorry I didn't have it with me then!)
* GET GROCERIES AND STUFF (on Tuesday morning, for sure!)
* buy Lauren's baby shower card and gift for next Sunday (I should also remind Lily tomorrow that she agreed to drive me!)
* buy Hannah's 8th birthday gift for May (one of the three Bathroom Readers For Kids Only, because we were talking about my Slightly Irregular Bathroom Reader (#17) two weeks ago)
* buy Mom's Bathroom Reader for my mom as a weird Mother's Day / birthday gift (the dates are close enough together in May, and that should also temporarily stop her complaints that I never get her anything :P)
* buy Sheena's birthday card, since her birthday's on Feb. 10
* buy a new mini-calculator.. I have no idea where my old one is
* buy a three-inch R-ring binder.. (possible?) chili on one of my present binders is NOT good :P
* buy a Vancouver postcard for myself, just because :D
* buy up some steak from Boston Pizza (had my Pasta Tuesday then)
* get some bubble tea from Tazza... it's been far too long!
* pay back the money I owe Nathan and both Erics (not much, but still :P)

I've not been a consumer whore for two weeks and counting because of all the snow / rain / floods / my wussiness. I really hope all the inclement weather stops soon so I can contribute to the economy again. ;)

Dream: HOT rock metal musicians and quadruplets

I got up at 1:40 today... this will make it hard to sleep tonight. :P

Last night, I had a dream where I was involved with these HOT rock metal guitarists... we had a conspiracy going where we'd scare the immense crowd of people in the atrium by driving a big tractor-trailer at them, and shouting "YOU WILL ALL BE DESTROYED!!!!" We had fun with that a few times, and then went off somewhere else to have another kind of fun with music. ;)

Then there was the dream in which my mom had given birth to quadruplets (two boys, two girls), and we somehow knew that only one girl would survive. My parents picked me up from somewhere (even though Mom wasn't supposed to be out from hospital yet), and then drove straight back to the hospital, whereupon my mom went straight back to bed near the babies. My sister arrived a little later with my grandma.. I have no clue why my brother didn't appear in this dream. *scratches head*

The babies looked more Caucasian than Chinese (weird), and all looked healthy enough.. they weren't really small quads, but appeared to be at least seven pounds each. (another thing that wouldn't happen in real life) I even remember their names: Aidan, Michelle, Brianna, and Rowan. We were trying NOT to get too attached to these babies: we also somehow knew that three of them would lose weight rapidly and die, despite the best hospital care. The dream ended with only Michelle surviving, but still in hospital.

I think I've been doing too much of three things:

* listening to Corey's metal music (but I *love* it! :D )
* flirting with a certain someone (we haven't done that in some time :P)
* seeing around too many places

Friday, January 21, 2005


I just called my mom, since I'm not going out tonight. (I actually changed my mind earlier this afternoon, but I couldn't tell Eric since he was at work.. oh well) She told me that one of my former mental health workers was stabbed to death, two days before his retirement! I certainly recognized the name Dave Bland when she told me.. apparently, he was exiting his workplace when a former client of his came up to him and started stabbing him. Four of his female co-workers then came out the employee exit soon afterwards, and saw him covered in blood.. but Dave was able to tell them who did it, so the police have this nutjob in custody now.

He was a very nice man, and a good teacher. Sad to think that life can be taken away in that instant.. RIP Dave Bland. You will be missed.

Story's not on the Internet yet, as far as I can tell. Maybe this weekend with the Richmond Review and Richmond News editions.

A dream about surviving a bomb explosion inside the mall...

Last night, I dreamed that I was among the sole survivors of a bomb explosion located inside a busy mall. I was going around the store that Eileen (Hellpixie) owned / worked at (which offered books, baked goodies, and more) with Dave and a couple of other friends. After we bought a few things, we headed out to the nearby food court to eat. A few other people joined us at the table, including this strange girl with diminished mental capacity. She looked like Elisha Dushku, only with mousy blonde hair... we later found out that she was the mad bomber. Everything at the busy mall certainly seemed to be going as normal, until the strange girl told us that we absolutely HAD to follow her down into the mall parking lot immediately!

We questioned her about it, but she seemed insistent that we follow her into the bowels of the mall. As we got up from the table, we could see one fuse lit and about to blow... that only increased our willingness to go with her! We wanted to warn the other people in the mall, but knew that time was far too short for that. Instead, we booked it down the underground passage into the parking lot: we could see the other fuse in a 10-metre pipe about to blow, and hoped we weren't next.

As we descended into the depths of the mall in a red milk crate (don't ask me, I don't know :P), we could hear a somewhat-muffled explosion that was quickly followed by lots of screaming and crying... then we could see what looked like floating pieces of the earth and the mall. We asked the strange girl why she'd done this: her answer was that she wanted to get her revenge against certain store clerks and rude mall patrons in general. She'd saved us seven because we were nice-looking, and she'd presumably get less time in jail if she saved people. That was not the case for her, although the other seven of us were very grateful we'd been marked for survival. When we got out of there, we were greeted by investigators and the bomb squad. The strange girl quickly gave herself up, and the rest of us were free to go after we answered some of their questions... phew! End of dream.

No, of course I don't wish for Eileen's death! (I wish that my friends and I could be saved from certain death, but that's something else!)

22 Things Which Fell From The Sky (glowing green snow, anyone?)

Finally found the thing on glowing green snow in the book that I swore it wouldn't be in, so here it is... it was also 22 things instead of the ten I thought it was.

Source: Uncle John's Supremely Satisfying Bathroom Reader (#14), pp. 213-217
(they got it from David Wallechinsky's Book of Lists, which I also loved to read!)

22 Things That Fell From The Sky

1. HAY

A great cloud of hay drifted over the town of Devizes, England, on 3 July 1977. It fell to Earth in handful-size lumps. The sky was otherwise clear and cloudless with a slight breeze. The temperature was 26°C (about 79°F).


Yellow-colored globules fell over suburban Sydney, Australia, in late 1971. The minister for health, Mr. Jago, blamed it on the excreta on bees, consisting mostly of undigested pollen. However, there were no reports of vast hordes of bees in the area. There was also no real explanation as to why they would choose to excrete en masse over Sydney.


On 5 May 1786, after five months of drought, a strong east wind dropped a great quantity of black eggs on the city of Port-au-Prince in Haiti. Some of the eggs were preserved in water and hatched the next day. The beings inside the eggs shed several layers of their skin, and resembled tadpoles.


The famous Kentucky meat shower took place in southern Bush County on Friday, 3 March 1876. Mrs. Allen Crouch was in her yard making soap when pieces of fresh meat the size of large snowflakes began to fall from the cloudless sky. Two gentlemen who tasted it said that the meat was either mutton or venison. Scientists who examined the material found the first samples to be lung tissue from either a human infant or a horse. Other later samples were identified as cartilage and striated muscle fibers. The local explanation was that a flock of buzzards had disgorged as a group while flying overhead.

5. A 3,902-POUND STONE

The largest meteorite fall in recorded history occurred on 8 March 1976, near the Chinese city of Jilin. Most of the 100 stones that were found weighed over 200 pounds; the largest, which landed in the Haupi Commune, weighed over 3,902 pounds. It is, by more than 1000 pounds, the largest stone meteorite ever recorded.


On 8 October 1976, a light plane buzzed the Piazza Venezia in Rome and dropped 500-lire, 1000-lire, and 10,000-lire banknotes on the startled people below. The mad bomber was never found.


A fine blanket of soot landed on a Cranford park on the edge of London's Heathrow Airport in 1969, greatly annoying the local park keepers. The official report of the Greater London Council said the "soot" was composed of spores of a black microfungus, Pithomyces chartarum, found only in New Zealand.


A 25-pound chunk of green ice fell from the sky on 23 April 1978, and landed with a roar and a cloud of smoke near an unused school building in Ripley, Tennessee. The Federal Aviation Administration claimed the green blob was frozen waste from a leaky airplane toilet. These falling blobs are unfortunately quite common: Denver, Colorado, is the centre of such phenomena. At least two Denver families have had ice bombs crash through their roofs. And then there's the story of the unfortunate Kentucky farmer who took a big lick of a flying Popsicle before he discovered what it was.

9. 500 BIRDS

About 500 dead and dying blackbirds and pigeons landed on the streets of San Luis Obispo, California, over a period of several hours in late November 1977. No local spraying had occurred, and no explanation was offered.

10. FIRE

On the evening of 30 May 1869, the horrified citizens of Greiffenberg, Germany, and neighboring villages witnessed a fall of fire. The fall of fire was followed by a tremendous peal of thunder. People who were outside reported that the fire was different in form and color from the common lightning. They said that they felt wrapped in fire and deprived of air for some seconds.


Blobs of white material up to 20 feet in length descended over the San Francisco Bay Area in California on October 11, 1977. Pilots in San Jose encountered them as high as 4,000 feet. Migrating spiders were blamed, although no spiders were recovered.


In April 1953, glowing green snow was encountered near Mount Shasta, California. Mr. and Mrs. Milton Moyer reported that their hands itched after touching it, and that "a blistered, itching rash" formed on their hands, arms, and faces. The Atomic Energy Commission denied any connection between the snow and recent A-bomb tests in nearby Nevada.


The 25 July 1973 edition of the Albany, New York, Times Union reported the unusual case of Bob Hill. Hill was the owner of radio station WHRI of North Greenbush, New York. He was taking out the station garbage at 4:15 PM when he noticed "twirling specks" falling from a distance higher than the station's 300-foot transmitter. He followed two of the white objects until they landed in a hay field. The objects turned out to be two sets of formulas and accompanying graphs, which apparently explained "normalized extinction" and the "incomplete Davis-Greenstein orientation." No explanation has been made public.


Rancher Salvador Targino of Brazil reported a rain of beans on his property in Paraíba State in early 1971. Local agricultural authorities speculated that a storm had swept up a pile of beans in West Africa and dropped them in northeastern Brazil. Targino boiled some of the beans, but said they were too tough to eat.


Several thousand rubles' worth of silver coins fell in the Gorki region of the USSR on June 17, 1940. The official explanation was that a landslide had uncovered a hidden treasure, which was picked up by a tornado, which dropped it on Gorki. No explanation was given for the fact that the coins were not accompanied by any debris.


Traffic at the Mexico City airport was halted temporarily on 30 July 1963, when thousands of grayish mushroom-shaped things floated to the ground out of a cloudless sky. Hundreds of witnesses described these objects variously as "giant cobwebs," "balls of cotton," and "foam." They disintegrated rapidly after landing.


Falls of frogs and toads are not everyday occurrences... but they are actually quite common, and have been reported in almost every part of the world. One of the most famous toad falls happened in the summer of 1794 in the village of Lalain, France. A very hot afternoon was broken suddenly by such an intense downpour of rain that 150 French soldiers (then fighting the Austrians) were forced to abandon the trench in which they were hiding to avoid being submerged. In the middle of the half-hour storm, tiny toads (mostly in the tadpole stage) began to land on the ground and jump about in all directions. When the rain let up, many soldiers discovered toads in the folds of their three-cornered hats.


In late October 1889, a Mr. Wright of the parish of Penpont, Dumfries, Scotland, was startled by the appearance of what at first seemed to be a flock of birds. They began falling to the ground, so he ran toward them. He discovered the objects to be oak leaves, which eventually covered an area one mile wide and two miles long. The nearest clump of oak trees was eight miles away, and no other kind of leaf fell.


Just before sunset in August 1897, an immense number of small / blood-colored clouds filled the sky in Macerata, Italy. About an hour later, storm clouds burst and small seeds rained from the sky, covering the ground to a depth of half an inch. Many of the seeds had already started to germinate, and all of them were from the Judas tree. The Judas tree is found predominantly in the Middle East and Asia. There was no accompanying debris... just the seeds.

20. FISH

About 150 perchlike silver fish just dropped from the sky during a tropical storm near Killaney Station in Australia's Northern Territory in February 1974. Fish falls are common enough that an "official" explanation has been developed to cover most of them. It is theorized that whirlwinds create a waterspout effect, sucking up water and fish. The whirlwind then carries them for great distances, and then drops them somewhere else.


In February 1965, a 50-pound mass of ice plunged through the roof of the Phillips Petroleum plant in Woods Cross, Utah. In his book Strangest of All, Frank Edwards reports the case of a carpenter working on a roof in Kempten -- near Düsseldorf, Germany -- who was struck and killed in 1951 by an icicle six feet long and six inches around, which shot down from the sky.


In September 1962, a metal object about six inches in diameter and weighing 21 pounds crashed into a street intersection in Manitowoc, Wisconsin. It burrowed several inches into the ground. The object was later identified as part of Sputnik IV, which had been launched by the USSR on 15 May 1960. Since 1959, more than 6000 parts of spacecraft have fallen out of orbit. Many of them have reached the surface of the Earth. On 11 July 1979, Skylab (the 77-ton US space station) fell out of orbit over the South Indian Ocean and western Australia. The largest piece of debris to reach land was a one-ton fuel tank.

History of the Bra (Bathroom Reader #14, pp. 167-171)

I've been trying to look something up on glowing green snow for Corey all night.

While that's going on, I give you the history of the bra:


Mother of Invention

Who invented the bra? Through the 1800's, a number of people patented items of intimate apparel for women, but most were just extensions of the corset. In 1893, Marie Tucek was granted a patent on a crude "breast supporter," which had a pocket for each breast, straps that went over the shoulders, and a hook-and-eye fastener in the back.

But the modern bra was really born 20 years later. The fashion of the early 1910's was to flatten the breasts for a slim, boyish figure; the fashion also favored plunging necklines. In 1913, a Manhattan debutante named Mary Phelps Jacobs became very frustrated when her chest-flattening corset kept peeking out above her plunging neckline. "The eyelit embroidery of my corset-cover kept peeping through the roses around my bosom," she wrote later in her autobiography, The Passionate Years. The sheerness of her Paris evening gown was ruined by the lumpy, bulky corset.

What's A Debutante to Do?

In frustration, she and her maid designed an undergarment made of two handkerchiefs and some ribbons that were pulled taut. "The result was delicious. I could move more freely, a nearly naked feeling, and in the glass I saw that I was flat and proper."

Showing off her invention in the dressing rooms of society balls, she had her friends begging for brassieres of their own. Jacobs actually sewed and gave away many bras as gifts. But when strangers started accosting her, requesting the brassieres and offering money, Jacobs went to see a patent attorney. (she had her maid model the garment discreetly over the top of her uniform, so that the patent attorney could see what it would look like)

A patent was granted, and Jacobs opened a small manufacturing facility. She called her invention the "backless brassiere." It was the first ladies undergarment to dispense with corset-stiffening whalebone, using elastic instead. Jacobs sold a number of her brassieres under the name "Caresse Crosby," but for all her ability as a designer, she had no marketing instincts. Sales of the Caresse Crosby brassiere were flat and she soon shelved the business.

A few years later, she bumped into an old boyfriend who happened to mention the fact that he was working for the Warner Brothers Corset Company. Jacobs told him about her invention and at his urging, showed it to his employers. They liked it so much, they offered to buy the patent for $1500. Jacobs took the money -- she thought it was a good deal. So did Warner Brothers Corset Company... they went on to make some $15 million from Jacobs' invention.


Ida and William Rosenthal, two Russian immigrants, came to America penniless and set up a dressmaking business in New York with a partner, Enid Bissett. The three were constantly dissatisfied with the way dresses fit around the female bosom, so in frustration -- and perhaps in rebellion to the popular flat-chested look of the flapper -- they invented the first form-fitting bra with separate "cups." And since all women are not built equally, Ida invented cup "sizes."

The Rosenthals gave up the dress shop in 1922, and started the Maidenform Brassiere Company with a capital investment of $4500. Four years later, they had 40 machines turning out mass-produced bras. Forty years later, they had 19 factories producing 25 million bras annually. Some of their innovations:

1. The "uplift bra," patented in 1927.
2. The "training bra." (no word on what they were in training for)
3. The "Chansonette bra," introduced in 1949. It had a cone-shaped cup stitched in a whirlpool pattern. The bra, which never changed shape, even when it was removed, was quickly dubbed the "Bullet Bra." Over the next 30 years, more than 90 million were sold worldwide.

When William died in 1958, Ida carried on and continued to oversee the company until her own death in 1973 at the age of 87. The Maidenform corporation, which started with 10 employees, now has over 9000.


Another major contributor to the development of the bra was Abram Nathaniel Spanel, an inventor with over 2000 patents... including one for a garment bag designed so that a vacuum cleaner could be hooked up to it to suck out moths. In 1932, Abram Spanel founded the International Latex Corporation in Rochester, New York, to make latex items such as bathing caps, slippers, girdles, and bras, sold under the name Playtex.

Playtex was very aggressive with its advertising. In 1940 -- an era when underwear ads in print publications were primarily discreet line drawings -- Playtex placed a full-page ad in Life magazine with photos of models wearing Playtex lingerie alongside a mail-in coupon. Women responded: 200,000 sales were made from the ad. And in 1954, Playtex became the first company to advertise a bra and girdle on TV. Those garments -- the Living Bra and Living Girdle -- remained part of the line for 40 years.

In 1965, Playtex introduced the Cross Your Heart Bra. Today, it remains one of the best-known brands in the United States and is the second bestselling brand of Playtex bra, with the 18-Hour Bra filling out the top spot.

Howard Hughes

The tycoon and film producer also had his hand in creating a bra. In 1941, he was making a movie called The Outlaw, starring his 19-year-old "protégé," Jane Russell. Filming was going badly because the bras Russell wore either squashed her breasts or failed to provide enough support to prevent her from bouncing all over the screen.

According to legend, Hughes designed an aerodynamic half-cup bra, so well reinforced that it turned Russell's bosom into a veritable shelf. Censors had a fit. 20th Century-Fox postponed the release date due to the controversy. Millions of dollars stood to be lost, so rather than back down, Hughes went all out. He had his people phone ministers, women's clubs, and other community groups to tell them exactly how scandalous this film was. That prompted wild protests. Crowds of people insisted the film be banned. The publicity machine launched into full gear, and when the film was finally released, it was a guaranteed hit.

On opening night, Hughes hired some skywriters to decorate the Hollywood skies with a pair of large circles with dots in their centres. Jane Russell, an unknown before the film, became a star overnight. Years later, she revealed in her autobiography that she had found Hughes' bra so uncomfortable that she had only worn it once... in the privacy of her dressing room. The one she wore in the movie was her own bra. No one -- not even Hughes -- was the wiser.

The Very Secret Bra

An inflatable bra introduced in 1952, it had expandable air pockets that would help every woman achieve "the perfect contour." The bra could be discreetly inflated with a hidden hand pump. Early urban myth: these inflatable bras sometimes exploded when ladies wore them on poorly pressurized airplanes.

The Jog Bra

Hinda Miller and Lisa Rosenthal were friends who enjoyed jogging, but didn't like the lack of support their normal bras offered. Lingerie stores had nothing better to offer them, so they decided to make their own. In 1977, they stitched together two jockstraps and tested it out -- it worked. Their original prototype is now displayed in the Smithsonian.

In 1978, the two inventors sold $3840 worth of their bras to sporting apparel stores. In 1997, Jogbra sales topped $65 million.

The Wonderbra

Originally created in 1964 by a Canadian lingerie company named Canadelle, the Wonderbra was designed for lifting and supporting the bustline while it also created a deep plunge and push-together effect, without compressing the breasts. Even naturally flat-chested women could achieve a full-figured look. The bra was popular in Europe, but wasn't even sold in the United States because of some international licensing agreements.

In 1991, fashion models started wearing Wonderbras they had purchased in London. Sara Lee Corporation (yes, the cheesecake company), who by then had purchased Playtex, bought the license to the Wonderbra and began marketing it aggressively. They spent ten million dollars advertising the new product, and it paid off. First-year sales peaked at nearly $120 million. By 1994, the Wonderbra was selling at the rate of one every 15 seconds for a retail price of $26.

Booby Prizes

Highest-Tech Bra: A British inventor has come up with a bra that contains a heart rate monitor, a Global Positioning System, and a cell phone. If the wearer is attacked and her heart rate jumps dramatically, the phone will call the police and give her location as determined by the GPS. The electronic components in this "Techno-Bra" are removable for laundry day.

Most Expensive Bra: For $15 million, you can buy a Victoria's Secret bra inset with over 1300 gemstones, including rubies and diamonds. (with matching panties)

Most Cultured Bra: Triumph International, a Japanese lingerie firm, created a bra to honor Mozart on the 200th anniversary of his death. It plays 20 seconds of his music every time it's fastened, and has lights that flash on and off in time to the beat. But perhaps in keeping with Mozart-era hygiene, the bra isn't washable.

Smelliest Bra: In 1998, French company Neyret announced that it was marketing a bra that would release some scents when stretched or caressed. The available aromas included apple, grapefruit, and watermelon.

Biggest Celebrity Bra Collection: If you're in Los Angeles, visit the Frederick's of Hollywood Bra Museum. It has such items as the bra Tony Curtis wore in Some Like It Hot; the bra Milton Berle wore on his TV show; and Phyllis Diller's training bra, marked "This side up."

Biggest Bra: The Franksville Specialty Company of Conover, Wisconsin, manufactures bras for cows in order to prevent them from tripping over their udders. The bras come in four sizes and are available in only one color: barnyard brown. Design extra: The bras for cows do keep the udder warm.

Cleverest Dual-Purpose Bra: When public opinion turned against her, former Philippine first lady Imelda Marcos reportedly wore a bullet-proof bra.

"When women's lib started, I was the first to burn my bra and it took three days to put out the fire." -- Dolly Parton

More Booster pictures from Kempy!

My dad just emailed me with the subject line being "meet me." If I didn't know it was my dad, I'd be VERY creeped out by it... that would go straight into the trash folder sight unseen! :P

My Adelaide friend Kempy just emailed me more pictures of his band. I emailed him last night to say that I'd changed my email address, and he replied with a couple of photos. When I thanked him for the awesome photos, he sent me five more. Gotta love good friends. :D

Spelling / grammar rant

This is inspired by an MSN conversation my brother and I were having earlier this afternoon about contagious misspellings. I thought he misspelled the name of Kom Jug Yuen, where I now want to eat. :P He said he didn't, and I told him to shut up a little further on. But I made a typo while doing that, so he said that now *I* was the one misspelling things... unless he had misspelt "misspell." I checked for him, and said that he'd spelled it right according to that site. He knew that "misspell" was one of the most common words to be misspelt, so I said that he'd inspired a blog rant. His reaction before he signed off: "Aiya." Mwahahaha. :D

Disclaimer: I'm not slagging you if you have dyslexia / something similar, if English isn't your first language and you're learning, or just can't spell to save your life. In fact, some of the spelling errors I'm about to rant about are made by people whom I love to death, kind of like Alyial. :P

I don't know WHY people can't spell simple words correctly! Yes, I know this is the Internet and I'm "supposed" to be used to this sort of thing. I can definitely read fluent typo, if I have to. But certain errors just grate on my nerves. No, I don't expect all the Net to have perfect spelling or grammar... I know I don't have those things myself, and that would be an impossible expectation in any case. But here is a list of some things that just make me go "ARGH!" whenever I see them, unless used in a joking way:


* leet speak / Netspeak and abbreviations ("u," "ur," "2" for "to," etc.)
* people putting apostrophes in places where there shouldn't be any


* "definitely" as "definately" or any other word (Corey is forgiven, but still! :P)
* "necessarily" as "necissarily" (I saw this once, and went insane :P)
* "satellite" as "sattelite" (see above)
* "ridiculous" as "rediculous" (I'll only forgive Corey for it, but still! :P)
* "hilarious" as "hillarious" (see above)
* "appreciate" as "appriciate"
* "weird" as "werid" or "wierd" (unless it's an obvious typo)
* "just" as "jsut" (see above)
* "aggravation" as "aggrivation"
* "vacuum" as "vacume"

(just see AnjyB's or Alyssa's posts here)

*** plus a LOT more that I can't think of right now!


* "to" / "too" / "two"
* "you're" / "your" (I see this one SO OFTEN!)
* "where" / "were" (believe it or not, I see this one too!)
* "loose" / "lose"
* "hostels" / "hostiles"
* "toke" / "took" (I saw "I was bored when I toke the pictures" in a community just yesterday.. made me think she was smoking them out of a marijuana bong :P)
* "threw" / "through" (I hated it on the Twinstuff board in 2001, and still hate it now, thanks to Kim :P)
* "breath" / "breathe"
* "then" / "than"
* "affect" / "effect"
* "common" / "come on" (I know a person who does this ALL THE TIME!)

*** plus a LOT more that I can't think of right now!

For more examples, go here or here. I'm sure there are more things like that out there, as well.

I'm not perfect, as I said before, but UGH!

Too bored... WAY too many quizzes! :P

Yes, I do realize that I'm posting a lot of quizzes. Sorry... it helps with the boredom, and also when people ask if I've taken a particular quiz before. *winks and blushes* :P
In your eyes, people see shards of ice
everywhere... You are cold and distant, pushing
away people that love you and truly care for
you! You want to be able to reach out and love
them, but you can't for some reason... You're
just too.... You. :P Underneath that cold
exterior lies a warm, happy soul that wants to
let loose and have fun! Your sanctuary would
probably be anywhere up high where you can look
down on life below you, like the roof of an
apartment building. Your eyes resemble a
saddened, crestfallen person seeking out
attention, but doesn't know how to handle it.
However, you do find comfort from your friends:
they're always there for you, and they know the
REAL you. :) Even though you do seem rather
cold, you can be very protective over something
you truly believe in or love. Let go of that
"tough" rep and just be you! It's
impossible to live life without some fun and love. ^-^

Which Red Sox / Yankee Player are YOU?

Have caught up on all blogs now... thank goodness my brother and sister took a holiday break from blogging. (my sister's blog is about the really personal faith stuff, let's just say)

This information is stolen from Dave's blog:

This is why I don't drink: I lack some sort of dehydrogenase protein and drinking even small amounts of alcohol causes my face to flush red and my head to feel like it's going to explode. I derive absolutely no pleasure at all from drinking because of this genetic aberration, and so I generally don't touch the stuff.

While the disadvantages of this affliction are many, there are several advantages that make this condition better than it would otherwise be. First, I am always sober. Now, many people will tell you that being the only sober person at a party full of drunks is boring. Not so! In fact, it is the most entertaining thing in the world. You would be surprised to hear what your drunk colleagues will tell you when they are oblivious to the dangers of their loose lips... muahahahaha. In all seriousness though, drink responsibly because there will always be sober Asians with AFS (Asian Flush Syndrome) who will remember your follies for posterity.

The second advantage of having AFS is being able to take the moral high ground re: the evils of alcohol. However, I must admit that this advantage is essentially nullified be the social stigma attached to holding a Perrier in a room of Stellas, Keats, and Sleemans. It's difficult to mingle when everyone in the room thinks you're a recovering alcoholic and covers their bottles in your presence so as to reduce the temptation (you poor, brave man... which step are you on now?... another Perrier for you?). Next time I work the crowd with my Perrier, I'll lick my lips every time I see someone with their beer and say something like, "... must be good to drink a nice cool beer like that on a hot day like this... mmmmmmmm... can I lick your bottle when you're done?"

I wish there are more advantages, but I honestly can't think of another one. AFS is a serious affliction that makes life for 50% of Asians in North America more difficult than it has to be. Thankfully, there is ongoing (albeit non-government-approved) research into finding a cure for AFS. I spoke with a Korean pharmacy student over the summer and he told me that in Korean circles, there is currently ongoing (again, this is not approved by the government and even the Mexican FDA is skeptical) trials of using antacids like Pepcid-AC to combat the effects of AFS. Initial results seem to indicate that taking two tablets before drinking significantly (statistical correlations are so not unavailable since there were only 2 Korean subjects in these trials) reduced facial flushing. I am going to adopt a wait-and-see approach to this recent discovery because I don't think it's wise to pop pills before drinking alcohol.

On a more serious note, this is stolen from my brother:

I was poking around a bit deeper on the mess some call genocide that's going on in the western region of Sudan (Darfur).

Something from Human Rights Watch. Go ahead and read through the rest of the section on Darfur and try not to be outraged at what's going on there.

I'd just leave the article as a link, but this is important enough to leave up as is.

Human Rights Day Statement

A message from Human Rights Watch Executive Director Kenneth Roth
(New York, December 10, 2004) - As we commemorate Human Rights Day, we are challenged by how little the world has done to save the people of Darfur, in western Sudan, from the year's greatest human rights disaster. With the Sudanese government and its ethnic militia well along in their campaign of murder, rape, pillage, and forced displacement, and after several Security Council resolutions on the Darfur crisis, the governments of the world can no longer claim not to know. Now that tens of thousands of civilians have died and some 1.6 million have been forced from their homes, Darfur is clearly on the international agenda. But that has provided little solace for the victims in Darfur. There has been much international hand-wringing, many expressions of outrage, but far too little meaningful response. The international community has moved from ignorance to concern to feigned action - but not more. Coming a decade after the Rwandan genocide, this meager response mocks our vows of "never again."

The vitality of the global defense of human rights is at stake. In the face of Khartoum’s crimes against humanity - atrocities that some have described as genocide - it is not enough to condemn the atrocities, feed the victims, and send a handful of poorly equipped African Union forces merely to observe the slaughter and consolidation of ethnic cleansing. No serious pressure has been put on the Sudanese government to halt its murderous campaign. No meaningful international force has been deployed to protect civilians. None of those directing the slaughter have been prosecuted. No government has lived up to its responsibility to protect the people of Darfur from large-scale slaughter.

We know what must be done to end the atrocities in Darfur and create conditions so the displaced can return home safely. The 3,500 African Union forces authorized for Darfur - a pittance for an area the size of France with few roads or infrastructure - must be bolstered significantly. Their mandate must be expanded to encompass civilian protection. Despite their preoccupations elsewhere, major governmental powers outside of Africa have a duty to protect and assist as well.

We also must ensure that those directing the atrocities in Darfur are brought to justice. The commission of inquiry established by the U.N. Security Council is likely to recommend in January that the council refer the situation in Darfur to the International Criminal Court. Will China see past its oil contracts to allow the referral to go forward? Will Russia let its arms sales to Khartoum get in the way? Will the United States overcome its antipathy for the court to allow prosecution of crimes it calls genocide? Or, as the people of Darfur suffer and die, will Washington insist on wasting time setting up a separate tribunal? The Security Council's many professions of concern will ring hollow if its answer to the desperate pleas from Darfur is, through delay or inaction, to let impunity reign.

Today, December 10, also marks the resumption of peace talks in Abuja, Nigeria between the Sudanese government and two Darfurian rebel groups. An end to the fighting would undoubtedly help the people of Darfur, but the atrocities are not simply the product of war. Rather, they result from Khartoum's decision to fight an insurgency by deliberately attacking hundreds of thousands of civilians who happen to share ethnicity with some of the rebels.

As we hope for peace and a political solution to the crisis, we must not lose sight of the atrocities that are the paramount cause of today's suffering in Darfur. The peace process addressing the twenty-one year war in another part of Sudan, the south, made the grievous error of ignoring similar atrocities committed there. That impunity emboldened Khartoum to resume its atrocities in Darfur when this new insurgency arose. That error must not be repeated. On Human Rights Day, we must remember that the tragedy of Darfur is foremost a human rights crisis. It will not end until the international community commits the military and prosecutorial resources to protect the people of Darfur from Khartoum's depredations.


Jon knows that most people's idea of "international news" is the tsunami roll, er, waves that devastated South / Southeast Asia and even hit a few countries in Africa as well. And while it's our duty to be concerned with what's going on in those affected areas and to be responsible human citizens in donating funds to credible charities, praying for victims and relief workers, etc., he feels that it's also vitally necessary to be informed about the worst humanitarian crisis currently in the world. Can any of you even positively identify Sudan on a world map? (hint: it's not in Europe). He's ashamed to say that he couldn't do that until sometime in the fall semester after having read a fair number of articles about Sudan (which happens to be directly north of Uganda, where there's also some pretty nasty battles going on in there. Uganda is north of Rwanda, and we all know what happened there in 1994).

Speaking for myself, I agree with him completely. I'm not up on all the world news myself, even though I should be. So please read this, if only to become more informed.

"Montezuma" as "Martin Luther" / various quiz results

Martin Luther King Day always reminds me of the time that Jon, Justin, Nathan, Brian, and I were eating some dinner before the plenary session at MissionsFest 2000 on 28 January of that year. (yes, I have this written down in my diary :P) Nathan was telling Brian that Jon had told him about an orchestra friend of his... she'd had Montezuma's Revenge, which is VERY easy to do in Russia! (which is where they'd been in the summer of 1999 for an orchestra trip.. they also went to Amsterdam on the same tour) For some odd reason, Justin then misheard "Montezuma's Revenge" as "Martin Luther's Revenge." Everyone was confused at first, then extremely amused.. it was very funny! We decided that he'd had too much exposure to MLK Day on that date. *laugh*

I am 37% loser. What about you? Click here to find out!
Your inner soul is calling for help! You always
seem so depressed, lonely, and feel like an
outsider. You may have a cold, sad exterior...
but in all reality, you are hurt inside and
bottling up all of your anger. Every day, you
wonder why are you still here when there is
nothing left? You used to once be a happy,
loving soul, but it was damaged by 'them' and
seems like it never can be fixed again.
However, you have not yet seemed to realize that
there are people out there that deeply care for
you. They secretly have a thing for you because
they find you to be dark, mysterious, and full
of secrets, not to mention being the prettiest
person in the world! You like to enjoy your
time by yourself expressing your feelings
through forms of art, and enjoy nice quiet
sceneries that just dazzle your mind with awe.
Your bedroom is basically your sanctuary where
you can hide out, hidden from those who gave
you all of the pain. Try to loosen up and have
some fun! Never start frowning because you
never know who's falling in love with your smile. :)
