Don’t forget the IBM computer is on Jeopardy tonight, tomorrow, and the 16th!
For those who know me, I’m a huge fan of Saturday Night Live (SNL). One of my dreams, along with sitting in the Black Hole at a Raider game, is to watch a taping of SNL, but I’ve never been able to get tickets. I guess wearing my SNL hat will have to do until then.
Zach Galifianakis hosted the show this past weekend. His monologue was pretty funny.
I didn’t catch that he actually shaved off his beard before the last skit. Check out the “behind the scenes”:
“Eat the head!!”
“Put them in your pocket, they’ll see the napkin.”
I love it. High five to Hsin for showing this to me.
I was watching this guy on TV several weeks ago. Pretty good ventriloquist with funny material. Personal fun fact: when I was young, I tried to pick up ventriloquism by reading books. I didn’t get very good, so instead, I learned to juggle.

When I got back, everyone kept asking why I didn’t stay for the Olympics. My answer was “it’s better watching it on TV.” But now that I’ve seen these pictures, I guess being at the opening ceremonies wouldn’t have been too bad.
I cringe every time Jet Li opens his mouth in these American films. I’m embarrassed for him, but at the same time, it makes me chuckle.
His first line in The Forbidden Kingdom after a long fight scene:
Why do I write this now? Because I’m watching Kiss of the Dragon on TV and laughed out loud at the following lines:
Bridget Fonda’s character: I’m not your type, huh?
Jet Li’s character: I don’t have a type.
Hmm, what else does he say that’s funny? I can’t seem to remember now.
The World is Awesome. I heart the Discovery Channel.
Update (Mar. 24):
Jon’s away message: if jabbawockeez don’t win this thursday, america is stupid.
Me: ooh, i agree with you about the jabbawockeez
Jon: HECK YEA!! did you vote?
Me:haha…aileen and i had to…
Jon: vote some more.

I’m gonna vote alot tonite also
I was hooked ever since I watched the first episode on board my Jet Blue flight to Boston. Now it’s down to the last 2 crews and the winner should be obvious, since Kaba Modern had to leave (What was America thinking?). Now it’s JabbaWockeeZ vs. Status Quo. How did Status Quo ever make it to the final two???? Unbelievable.
Aileen: Where’s my phone?
Aileen: I need to text in my vote.
Hulu is now live. Watch thousands of TV-Movie videos for free!
Another commercial on TV that I laugh at EVERY time I see it. Very clever. The vacuum blows up…love it.
My friend Craig had extra tickets to Barry Bonds’ last game with the Giants, so he invited me and my friend Nathan along. We had really good seats (row 10 on the 3rd base side). Even though I’m not a big fan Giants fan, it’s always fun to go to a ballgame and of course, take pictures! Nathan and I brought our cameras along, but the the people who sat in front of us had big posters that blocked our photography efforts.
In the middle of the 6th inning, I went to use the restroom, and asked if anyone wanted me to get anything. Craig asked for garlic fries, but he told me to get them only if the lines were short. There were a handful of people in line, so I went ahead and stood in line. All the while, bottom of the inning, Giants at bat, Bonds on deck. I was very tempted to leave the line, but I figured, it’s ok, I’ll just watch on the TV’s. Apparently, it was his last at bat. He was leaving because his big toe was hurting (poor baby…*said in the tone of Hanz & Franz*) Anyways, I guess the fans gave him a standing ovation. He came out, waved his hat around…yay. And poof. Just like that, he’s gone. No speech to thank his fans. Not even an interview with the press. Bonds and his attitude, all the way to the end.
Anyhoo, here’s why I’m posting this today. Craig IM’ed me this morning and sent a scan of the front page of the sports section in today’s San Jose Mercury News:
Click on the link to see what I’m talking about. You can see my friend Craig on the left with the hat and Nathan on the right with his camera, but WHERE AM I??? Yes, I was in line–missing. Totally missing. These things are only supposed to happen to someone like Ben Stiller in Meet the Parents.
Funny, I wasn’t that upset about missing Barry Bonds. I’m more upset about being missing from the newspaper. There goes my 15 millimeters of fame.
Check out the celebration–the 10th anniversary of Hong Kong’s return to China from Britain. Too bad I was only able to watch it on TV. Must have been madness out there.
Happy birthday to my dad too.
So much on my mind lately. It hurts to be burned by people and jerked around time and time again. I don’t know what to say or do about things like this any more. My brother thinks that I’m just too nice. Many thanks to God for friends who have actually been demonstrating their care for me. I’m usually the one taking care of others. I miss being cared for.
My main love language is Quality Time. I’m not really into all that mushy-gushy stuff, but it’s neat to know about yourself and your friends. So, anyone wanna go to an A’s game before I leave this summer?
Anyone else out there who has taken the test before? What’s your main love language? I haven’t had time to read the book, but does anyone know if your love language can change throughout the course of your life or does it stay constant? Hmm…
