Chinese New Year!!!
I always thought I was born in a Year of the Snake in 1989… but due to the Chinese New Year starting later I’ve actually been a Dragon all of my life! This is is even more life changing than finding out that my name was Andrew when I was 5 years old. haha.
Coffee Shops in NOLA
Tons of Catholic school girls studying! wtf, you live in great homes with more comfortable seating and you come to these coffee shops. Crazy! I’m only here because my dad is stuck in 80’s w/o net!
Also, crazy people. Right now it’s a chubby black gentlemen listening to a CD player and having a full conversation with the device… for 40mins now!
Two days ago there was a pirate looking dude at the shop with an old lady. He spoke out load randomly, and made funny noises. Then he’d go into full on proper british dude talking, and was upset that the old lady took so long to take care of her business in the ladies room!
Talking to my mom about Asian/Euro human origins.
She’s like a tree or a wall… something.
She brought up how she had read on the internet that white people and asians came from albino black people. She said that there is no way that we could have become lighter skinned in such a short time(Out of Africa Theory is sometime between 125kya and 50kya). My buddy Ethan and I tried to explain that it is an interesting idea, but what about all of the other genetic changes between humans in different parts of the world. Height, weight, width, and facial/head structures. Every geographic area is highly unique when it comes to their indigenous populations, and if we could evolve to be best suited for local geography when it comes to everything besides skin then why couldn’t we evolve different skin tones to best suit our needs. (Sorry to not put things in the most scientific ways, but I just want to tell a story.) She then keeps on telling us about how we are albinos, and puts her laptop in my face to show me pictures of albinos. I keep telling her it an interesting/plausible idea, but from what we know right now it’s just been natural selection that is offering our changes. Not some herd of albinos that where shunned in a northerly direction. She then shows me more pics, and keeps saying the same old things…
I then shut her laptop(which has a problem so when you open it you have to find the right spot for it work), and she tried to say that I assaulted her. I then told her that she didn’t need to keep putting her laptop in my face with pictures of African/Indian albinos, and that she instigated the situation. Then I let her know that if she knew how to discuss things like a normal person that this situation wouldn’t have happened. Following this she told me that if I wanted to be done talking about it then I should have let her know I wanted to stop… except I didn’t. I wanted to have a discussion, but she didn’t like that fact that neither myself nor Ethan(has a b.s. in Bio/Chem) were believing in what she had found on the internet. She then left the room without saying anything.
We had an issue like this a couple months ago. We got into an argument, and she said I didn’t know how to talk to people. She then said, “What are you going to do when you have a 5 year old.”. I retorted with a comment on how a conversation with a grown human shouldn’t be anything like a conversation with a 5 year old. This upset her, but she was the one who decided to compare herself to a 5 year old. (During this convo we were talking about my job at a children’s home, and she kept telling me how we should handle things. I kept telling her that we have to follow the rules of the state and institution.)
Let’s just say I’m happy that I’ll be out of the house for a couple months, and next fall can’t come soon enough.
I would like to say…
…whenever I use “hahahaha” I’m mostly never physically laughing. I’ll think it’s funny in my head, so I put “hahahaha”. I just want you guys to know I don’t spend my day physically loling in my room like a crazy person.
Shut Up! It’s Daddy You Shithead!
Going to Some Cocktail Party in My Penguin Suit
Some friend of my sister is having a party tonight. It’s part of the whole social scene down in NOLA. It’s a huge waste of time and money if you ask me. It is fun, but it’s not really a big deal to me. Kind of lame since it is to my sister and dad.
Tomorrow I’m going to a ball that I’m a member of. It’s fun since I get to dress up in costume/mask, but once again, not really worth it. Last year I made some friends, but my cell phone died so I didn’t get any of their info and that was that.
Also, one of the debutantes is named Carlyle, not Carli/y, but Carlyle. Like some sort of butler or servant with an English accent. Silly rich white people.
I’m sure these people do donate to charities, if only for the sake of it being a tax deduction or to give them something to do besides count their money. But, I figure these people could do something with their cash that would be really constructive. Be like Oprah or something.
