Yellow Fever video

Captain’s Log, Stardate 05.03.2006

Blog book giveaway:
My Thursday book giveaway is MOTHER OF PREVENTION by Lori Copeland.
My Monday book giveaway is three books by Tricia Goyer.
You can still enter both giveaways. Just post a comment on each of those blog posts. On Thursday, I'll draw the winner for MOTHER OF PREVENTION and post the title for another book I'm giving away. Stay tuned.

Yellow Fever: This video was produced by a couple UC San Diego students, and it's hilariousy funny. Or maybe it's just funny to Asians. Watch it and tell me what you think. It's about 15 minutes long.


Comments

  1. Well I laughed. :) Though I think they missed on the chance to comment on the inability of giant green dino-men to attract the ladies. ;)

  2. I thought it was hysterical. Of course, I went to UC Irvine and am one of the rare white girls married to an Asian guy.

    I thought it was interesting (to make this somewhat writing related) how the guys tried to figure out what girls wanted and found attractive. And their thought process was pretty funny. But it's those kinds of things that we as writers can use to differentiate our characters and make them seem real.

  3. LOL! What I want to know is whether you are married to a white guy Camy? And FWIW one of my white girlfirneds is married to an Asian guy. Maybe it is a supply and demand thing. Not many Asian guys in Kansas!

  4. I'm really having problems with Quicktime. I looked up how the knee joint works and had not problem getting that (could have been on a different system, I suppose but I thought it had the QT logo). I've tried to install it several times but it always gives me an error message. Of course, I do have an old and decrepit computer a Pentium II and it seems that even some of the things that should work on here won't.

    Please say an additional little prayer for me. Thanks, sweetie. I just seem to have no-one truly supportive close to me.

  5. That was so funny! My husband (white) walked by my computer to see what I was listening to. And yes, his arms are hairy. TMI, sorry.

    You never can tell what that Camy is going to post next.

    In the meantime, I'll be at

  6. Ha ha ha, LOLOLOL!
    I think I found it sooo funny because I'm from a inter-racial family (mom Native American, dad White)..so what does that make me? A hybrid, of course. There's a lot of similarities like the hairless arms and no-butt. Too funny!

No Cold Bums toilet seat cover

Captain's Log, Stardate 08.22.2008 I actually wrote out my pattern! I was getting a lot of hits on my infamous toilet seat cover , and I wanted to make a new one with “improvements,” so I paid attention and wrote things down as I made the new one. This was originally based off the Potty Mouth toilet cover , but I altered it to fit over the seat instead of the lid. Yarn: any worsted weight yarn, about 120 yards (this is a really tight number, I used exactly 118 yards. My suggestion is to make sure you have about 130 yards.) I suggest using acrylic yarn because you’re going to be washing this often. Needle: I used US 8, but you can use whatever needle size is recommended by the yarn you’re using. Gauge: Not that important. Mine was 4 sts/1 inch in garter stitch. 6 buttons (I used some leftover shell buttons I had in my stash) tapestry needle Crochet hook (optional) Cover: Using a provisional cast on, cast on 12 stitches. Work in garter st until liner measures

ひとり寿司第22章パート3

「ひとり寿司」をブログに連載します! ひとり寿司 寿司シリーズの第一作 キャミー・タング 西島美幸 訳 スポーツ狂のレックス・坂井 —— いとこのマリコが数ヶ月後に結婚することにより、「いとこの中で一番年上の独身女性」という内輪の肩書を「勝ち取る」ことについては、あまり気にしていない。コントロールフリークの祖母を無視するのは容易だ —— しかし、祖母は最終通告を出した —— マリコの結婚式までにデート相手を見つけなければ、無慈悲な祖母は、レックスがコーチをしている女子バレーボールチームへの資金供給を切ると言う。 ダグアウトにいる選手全員とデートに出かけるほど絶望的なわけではない。レックスは、バイブルスタディで読んだ「エペソの手紙」をもとに「最高の男性」の条件の厳しいリストを作った。バレーボールではいつも勝つ —— ゲームを有利に進めれば、必ず成功するはずだ。 そのとき兄は、クリスチャンではなく、アスリートでもなく、一見何の魅力もないエイデンを彼女に引き合わせる。 エイデンは、クリスチャンではないという理由で離れていったトリッシュという女の子から受けた痛手から立ち直ろうとしている。そして、レックスが(1)彼に全く興味がないこと、(2)クリスチャンであること、(3)トリッシュのいとこであることを知る。あの狂った家族とまた付き合うのはごめんだ。まして、偽善的なクリスチャンの女の子など、お断り。彼はマゾヒストじゃない。 レックスは時間がなくなってきた。いくら頑張っても、いい人は現れない。それに、どこへ行ってもエイデンに遭遇する。あのリストはどんどん長くなっていくばかり —— 過去に掲載済みのストーリーのリンクはこちらです。 *** ********** 父に白い封筒を渡される前から、レックスの心臓は張り裂けていた——冷たい日本海で真っ二つに分かれる氷河のように、耳をつんざくような鋭い音がする。 (あなたを、ワサマタユ・スポーツクラブの男女混合および女子バレーボールチームに受け入れます……) その手紙にきちんと折り目をつけて、封筒の中に戻した。そして、膝を上げて横になっているソファの隣に置かれた、コーヒーテーブルに手紙を落とした。 彼女の入部を伝えるために、その日の午前中、ダレンから電話があった。 「ダレ
