25 Things


I lost my battery charger for my camera and so I haven’t had any pictures to complement my thoughts on food. And being that the world is currently in an A.D.D. state of mind, this doesn’t make for good blog posting.

So, I’m re-purposing my “25 things” list from Facebook. Unless your name rhymes with Fettucine* or you are an unborn fetus, then you should know what I’m talking about. Actually, it’ll probably be sooner than later when hospitals will offer complementary facebook registrations for your newborn child in conjunction with the signing of their birth certificate.  

 1. Out of 251 emails in my inbox, 101 are tagged with the word “food”
2. I cut my hair short the day of my senior prom in high school.
3. I specifically remember this because it was the day after my best friend  burned 3/4 of my luscious Asian hair off with a bottle of bleach.
4. My biggest fashion mistake was also during senior prom when I matched the hot pink tuille under my little black dress with hot pink hair under my short black bob.
5. I have mixed feelings about senior year in high school.
6. In 7th grade, it took me about 3 weeks to reply to a boy who asked me out.
7. I believe this was the genesis of my fear of relationships.
8. I have a mole directly under my nose and directly between my two nostrils.
9. Some have argued its coordinates, along with the number pi and Dan Brown, are the answers to the world’s biggest mystery
10. My last few wikipedia searches were: Noah Baumbach, electronic commerce, breadwinner, and world’s biggest mystery.
11. My latest indulgence has been to the movie theater by myself and enjoy a movie with a bag of small popcorn and diet coke.
12. I’ve always harbored a secret desire to be famous for something.
13. I’ve just recently started working once a week in the restaurant kitchen.
14. I own black crocs.
15. I take back what I said in #4.
16. The Hills franchise makes me anxious, self-conscious, angry, flustered, all of the above.
17. I’ve managed to hit both a motorcyclist and a cyclist with my car
18. One life goal is to write the winning caption for The New Yorker cartoon caption contest.
19. I can fit my body in a suitcase. zipped.
20. My mom and I don’t really speak the same language. literally.
21. My favorite fro yo is Mcdonald’s vanilla fro yo in a cone.
22.My breakfast these days include a piece of toasted sourdough, slightly burned, spread with homemade fig jam and soft scrambled eggs or cottage cheese with a cup of muddy coffee with brown sugar and vanilla creamer.
24. I think this describes a relationship quite lovingly: http://www.newyorker.com/reporting/2009/01/19/090119fa_fact_cook
25. I’ll always believe I’ll be famous for something


Come to think of it, this is perfect. Because now I don’t have to write an “about me” page. SWEET.


*Note: I’ve stopped writing people’s official names because apparently if you’re applying to law school, they will scrape and peruse every moment in time and space to find incriminating (and sometimes just adorable) pictures of you to accuse you for participating in undignified and inappropriate dinner parties.
