This clip is great as well. Justin just showed up on the show, and hosted SNL in 2 minutes. He did a really good job. Great comedic timing.

The secret to this tiny refreshing dish is the bonito fish shavings. It's my favorite part of the dish so I always ask for more. There is also ginger in this dish, but I don't like it and ask for it separately. It's the perfect study break food.

“Choice feminism” claims that staying home with the kids is just one more feminist option. Funny that most men rarely make the same “choice.” Exactly what kind of choice is that?
It's very interesting because she talks down on women that have expensive degrees and are extremely well educated...who have given it all up to have children and care for them.
It really stirred me because I vastly agree with the women that actually did it and admire them...especially since I plan on being one myself. Don't get my wrong. I'm all for being the power couple, but when I start having kids, and my husband is able to care for the family financially, I WANT to put my career aside, and focus on my family. Who is to say that I'm loosing out when I can see my kids grow and travel with them around the world while another woman is slaving away in a corporate office trying to meet the next deposition deadline? Maybe, just maybe, I might be happier.
The women that she interviews are all highly educated, and now are basically moms that educate their children very well, so in my mind, I don't understand how this is bad for the female gender. How is that degenerate for the female race, when she could be raising the next woman president? She puts them down, and says that they are destroying what feminism has accomplished in the work force, and that these women are rapidly becoming "untouchables."
I LOVE this quote that an Ivy Leager mom and wife wrote: "he's the CEO and I'm the CFO. He sees to it that the money rolls in and I decide how to spend it." That's my motto. =)

This case, Loving v. Virginia, is one of the first cases we read in both Bioethics and Family Law. It is one of the leading cases that changed the Constitution on interracial marriages and is one of the most inspiring cases I've read as of yet.
To think that we take interracial marriages so much for granted now is insane, since this case took place only 40 years ago. One of the main reasons the Constitution banned interracial marriages was to "preserve the racial integrity of its citizens and to prevent the corruption of blood." It seems so absurd to read that now, but the scariest part is that in the epilogue of one of my books, we read that Alabama did not get rid of this statute until November of 2000. Y2K. Unbelievable.

I like this quote: "Authorities have also told people to queue up politely, to smile and not to spit on the streets." ... Cause you know, we're savages.

N:VISION light bulbs are exclusive to Home Depot but there are other CFL lights that are also energy savers.
They are a bit more expensive initially, but the cost over time is worth the initial expense. It can save you up to $30 dollars in energy costs per bulb's lifetime. One of these bulbs is equivalent to 6 of my normal lightbulbs!
Please please try to conserve our energy by replacing these in your home. Every little step helps!

"Attractive men have available to them more short-term mating opportunities," he told the Daily Mail. "This may make them less satisfied and less committed to the marital relationship." For some men, a beautiful wife is all about prestige. "Men are rated as more likeable and friendly when they have a wife who is very attractive," Strathclyde University psychologist Alastair Ross told the Mail.
Bottom line: What may appear as a mismatch to the human eye is really a match made in heaven.

Family Legends is what the family tells people. The problem: it's only true in the parents' minds, not the actual people they are referring to. :::sigh::: What can you do? After awhile, you start to see the humor in it and don't take it so seriously... as long as the story is not about you.
As for me, it's ALWAYS funny unless it directly affects the life my parents DON'T know about. Here is my family legend:
Legend: I am betrothed to a graduated and already successful Vietnamese orthopedic surgeon that is about to open his own office and is immensely Catholic.
Truth: I'm single and short. I don't date surgeons. He's single but tall. He's barely Catholic. He doesn't like short girls.

I have ... and the reason for it happening to me all the time is because I sit in the same Starbucks cafe almost everyday and all the workers know me by name. Since I'm here so often, there is a high chance that someone who comes in fairly often will notice the girl camped out with 5 law school textbooks next to her and a 17 in Toshiba covering most of her head.
Normally, the people that come up and chat are great. Nice people that are just making conversation in a friendly and non threatening manner, even if you know they're interested in more than just talking. I'm a pretty open person. I enjoy meeting new people, which is the reason why I even study here... but it comes with a price...
Today, for some reason, has been a day of creepy people. Twice I was approached by guys that are absolutely creepy and I am beyond annoyed so I had to blog vent. I am sitting in my favorite spot right now and writing this as it's happening.
The first guy is none other than a fob. I don't have anything against accents at all. I actually LOVE accents, even Vietnamese ones! But it goes along with the personality and the specific person. This guy is by far, the most annoying fool I've ever met. The worse part about it, I can't say anything! If you know me, you know that I don't keep quiet if someone bothers me. I make it known. However, this time, I can't say anything because he is a lawyer in, where else, but Little Saigon and has connections in the lawyer associations in the community. With that said, I have to keep my mouth shut b/c they warn you in law school that you have to maintain civil manners in the face of annoyance or plain disgust. So I can do nothing but politely decline all of his invitations to dinners, coffees, and even internships. I can't quite explain the feelings I get on this, but I guess the closest thing is a woman's intuition. I just don't feel right when he's around and he just plain gives me the creeps although he is a practicing lawyer and architect. I don't care if he makes a zillion dollars a year and is a genius. It's not worth my uneasiness.
The second guy is a scrubby lookin fella. I didn't notice him at first, but a worker actually pointed him out to me when I left to get a cup of coffee. Apparently, this fool has been staring at me behind my ginormous screen while eating a coffee cake and the crumbs are dribbling down his mouth. How insanely gross is that? [sorry, a little OC came out of nowhere there..]
Well, he plucked himself a couch next to me and watched me type this out without his knowing. A few moments ago, after the fob fool left me alone after I told him that he was bothering my study time, THIS fool decides to gather his balls and knock on my laptop screen and comment on how big my Toshiba was. It was followed by "you are such a small little girl, you should get one of those cute little pink computers that fits your small frame." Do I look like a Harujuku girl with a pink diamonds encrusted on my laptop and phone? NO. Leave me the hell alone with my bad ass machines. arhhhggg.

"The couples my friend and I saw at the park that summer were enviable but not because they seemed so in love — they were enviable because the husbands played with the kids for 20 minutes so their wives could eat lunch. In practice, my married friends with kids don’t spend that much time with their husbands anyway (between work and child care), and in many cases, their biggest complaint seems to be that they never see each other. So if you rarely see your husband — but he’s a decent guy who takes out the trash and sets up the baby gear, and he provides a second income that allows you to spend time with your child instead of working 60 hours a week to support a family on your own — how much does it matter whether the guy you marry is The One?
It’s not that I’ve become jaded to the point that I don’t believe in, or even crave, romantic connection. It’s that my understanding of it has changed. In my formative years, romance was John Cusack and Ione Skye in Say Anything. But when I think about marriage nowadays, my role models are the television characters Will and Grace, who, though Will was gay and his relationship with Grace was platonic, were one of the most romantic couples I can think of. What I long for in a marriage is that sense of having a partner in crime. Someone who knows your day-to-day trivia. Someone who both calls you on your bullshit and puts up with your quirks. So what if Will and Grace weren’t having sex with each other? How many long-married couples are having much sex anyway?"
