My bros showing u how it's done.

SNL Justin & Beyonce

This SNL clip is up there with the Cow Bell episode. It's Justin Timberlake as one of Beyonce's back up dancers in the video for "Single Ladies". He totally upstaged Paul Rudd AND Beyonce. It's unbelievably funny. Justin & Beyonce Parody

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.

Culture Shock and Wiggle Room

I like this article. I usually hear it from avid travelers and it always makes me smile when I hear other people compare and realize that we are not necessarily the most civilized people in this world. "One third of the world use forks and knives, one third of the world use chopsticks like me, and one third of the world use their fingers. We are all civilized the same." Rick Steves on Culture Shock

Downhill Skateboard

Just a bunch of speed demons in powder blue suits skating down Claremont Canyon Hills. I think there are 2 guys handing the camera back and forth and I am so impressed. I want that camera. I enjoyed the whole 10 minutes downhill. Makes me miss my skis.

My new Japanese addiction is Hiyayakko. I eat tofu raw at home all the time and my mother fries the tofu with different things. However, whenever I'm at Chaya in Costa Mesa, I always have to get my Jasmine Milk Tea and my Hiyayakko.

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.

Linda Hirshman, Homeward Bound

I just read this article in my Family Law Supplement.

“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. =)

Loving v. Virginia

I'm back as a 2L now, my second year of law school, and I'm taking some very interesting classes this year. One of the most interesting will be Bioethics. It is a seminar with one of my favorite professors, and he has basically made this class one of the most controversial and well discussed classes at Whittier Law. Another class that I really like is Family Law. Taught by another one of my favorite professors, Deborah Forman, she also raises controversial topics such as polygamy, interracial marriages, and homosexual marriages into the family atmosphere.

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.

Sean Travis is running for State Representative in Kansas.
This is one of his campaigns.
I thought it was pretty funny.

Things I Can't Afford

I keep seeing things that I want and I can't afford them. I can't ask for them because they are ridiculous, and I don't need them. But I still want them. =(
  • Law and Order DVD Collection
  • Rock Band for Wii and / or PS3
  • Wii Fit
  • Canon G9
  • iPhone
  • Paris [cause everyone else is going]
I guess this is the incentive for working hard.

China Bans Dog Meat From Olympic Menu

China is banning dog meat from menus for the Olympics as a sign of respect for other cultures.

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.

Energy Saver

I just replaced almost all the lightbulbs in my house with these new Energy Saver bulbs.
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!

9 Words Women Use

(1) Fine: This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right and you need to shut up.

(2) Five Minutes: If she is getting dressed, this means a half an hour. Five minutes is only five minutes if you have just been given five more minutes to watch the game before helping around the house.

(3) Nothing: This is the calm before the storm. This means something, and you should be on your toes. Arguments that begin with nothing usually end in fine.

(4) Go Ahead: This is a dare, not permission. Don't Do It!

(5) Loud Sigh: This is actually a word, but is a non-verbal statement often misunderstood by men. A loud sigh means she thinks you are an idiot and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you about nothing. (Refer back to # 3 for the meaning of nothing.)

(6) That's Okay: This is one of the most dangerous statements a woman can make to a man. That's okay means she wants to think long and hard before deciding how and when you will pay for your mistake.

(7) Thanks: A woman is thanking you, do not question, or Faint. Just say you're welcome. (I want to add in a clause here - This is true, unless she says 'Thanks a lot' - that is PURE sarcasm and she is not thanking you at all. DO NOT say 'you're welcome' .. that will bring on a 'whatever').

(8) Whatever: Is a woman's way of saying F@!K YOU!

(9) Don't worry about it, I got it: Another dangerous statement, meaning this is something that a woman has told a man to do several times, but is now doing it herself. This will later result in a man asking 'What's wrong?' For the woman's response refer to # 3.

What Kind of Woman Attracts Men

What Kind of Woman Attracts Men

I'm 16% of the way there! Go raven hair!

Why Women Prefer Plain Men

Why Women Prefer Plain Men

"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

Another hilarious Nancy post that calls for a blog post.

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.

Come Together - Beatles

This song was written by John Lennon during his and Yoko's bed-in in Toronto in May 1969. It came about when their friend, Timothy Leary, the LSD drug mahatma and self-proclaimed liberator of the world's collective mind, slowed up at the bed-in. At this time, Leary had made a decision to run for political office, and came up with the campaign slogan of "Come Together." With this slogan in mind, he asked John to write him a song using it, that his followers could sing on the campaign trail. Lennon's take on the slogan was to come together and join the party, and wrote the song. Before Leary could use it, he was arrested and went to jail. As a result of Leary being gone, Lennon figured his obligation to him was no longer in force, thus he and The Beatles recorded it. -

Here come old flattop he come grooving up slowly
He got joo-joo eyeball he one holy roller
He got hair down to his knee
Got to be a joker he just do what he please

He wear no shoeshine he got toe-jam football
He got monkey finger he shoot coca-cola
He say "I know you, you know me"
One thing I can tell you is you got to be free
Come together right now over me

He bag production he got walrus gumboot
He got Ono sideboard he one spinal cracker
He got feet down below his knee
Hold you in his armchair you can feel his disease
Come together right now over me

He roller-coaster he got early warning
He got muddy water he one mojo filter
He say "One and one and one is three"
Got to be good-looking 'cause he's so hard to see
Come together right now over me

Venting: Getting the Creeps

Have you ever been somewhere, anywhere, and some guy comes up to you to either make conversation, hit on you, or just plain get to know you?
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.

Why its OK to Settle for Mr. Good Enough

I liked this article...and this part...

"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?"
