Something new for a new year...Asian? - 27 (DC)

-- original ad --

Date: 2008-12-31, 2:59PM EST

Just kinda bored at work today, and something dawned on me: I have dated people from all ethnicities, but for some reason I have never had the opportunity to date anyone of Asian descent.

A little about me: attractive 27yo, white, blond, professional female living and working in D.C. Have my stuff together, looking for the same. No kids, but I adore my cats. I like to read, jog, and enjoy good, humorous company. I LOVE to travel. I'm pretty independent and strong-willed, but I am also open to other perspectives and adept at compromise.

Just kind of curious who is out there. Hoping to meet someone attractive, honest, positive, hopefully a bit outdoorsy.

I'm in no hurry, so I'd ideally like to exchange pics and e-mails, have a few phone conversations before meeting.

If this has piqued your interest and you'd like to know more and think we might hit it off, them shoot me an e-mail.

Chinese Restaurant Tables and those who move them

"People who come into a restaurant, rearrange the tables, eat, leave, and don't put back the tables from where they originally found them."

So that was my observation. Here I was at my usual Chinese take out place. It's cheap, and actually fairly genuine. The menu is mostly americanized but they have a few dishes that is catered to the chinese palette. Pretty good all around.

Here I am minding my business and I noticed this big family of adults and children, roughly 15 or so individuals in the group. They pulled a bunch of tables together so that they could all sit and eat together. No big deal. People do that all the time.

What bugs me the most is that after this group was done eating none of the adults bothered to put the tables back to their original position. How do I know? Well, each table is supposed to be by themselves and not placed next to each other. This group had 4 tables placed next to each other.

This may not seem like a big deal but what happened to common courtesy? If these kids were playing with their toys at home, and when they were done they didn't put them back, what do you think their parents would say? Do you think it is appropriate for you to go to the supermarket push around one of their carts and when you were done just ditched it at by the curb where you parked, not even to at least return the cart to the cart return corral or back to wherever you got the cart in the first place?

Remember VHS? Some of you may not remember that not too long ago when you used to rent movies on VHS it was common courtesy for you to "be kind, please rewind". What happened to those days?

Maybe it is just me but I suppose people are getting lamer by the day. Quit being lame people and pick up after yourselves. Clearly you're not setting a good example for your kids because none of them bothered to do what you should have done in the first place.

Shame on you! Booo!!!

Before I forget

One strange and ironic thing so far this morning (only because I have somehow forgotten the second thing on my drive to the metro):

1. The lighting of the christmas and the double standard that we take on homelessness in the district of columbia vs the rest of world.

Not that I don't have the christmas spirit, but we spend all this money on a pair of christmas tree (in front of the capitol and near the wite house) celebrating christmas each and every year. In an economic struggle such as the one we are in, is the money really well spent? In the back drop of that, we have homeless people and families wandering around the district, not having a place to sleep, little to no money for food, but forced to see TWO christmas tree lit up like a couple of fire crackers on the Fourth of July. We might as well have a buffet of food and camping supplies all laid out somewhere but put them behind a wall of electrically charged barbed wire fence and taunt them with it as the rest of us watch in joy as each one try to claim their unwinnable prize; like a sadistic robot arm reaching for that cuddly teddy bear, each attempt only 25 cents.

We are suppose to be the symbol of hope for the rest of the world? There are those a stone throw away from the epic center of all this "hopefulness" that can't even afford a warm cup of soup let alone dream that they can make it past this already blistering cold autumn.


How about a drum stick? A chicken wing? How about a jacket and a pair of gloves? How about some heat? Don't talk about how the trees are 50% more energy efficient than last year's tree when the money you spend this year is 100% as wasteful as the amount you squandered last year.

As long as the Washington D.C. continue to be the cesspool, we are sending the message and telling the rest of the world that it is ok to have your cake, slice after slice, and not have to share that cake with the people from which it claims to serve.

Give me liberty or give me death. Perhaps it ought to be

Give me a drum stick or give me ass.

In reality, we are all getting fucked up the rear. Maybe we have more in common with our gay and lesbian brothers and sisters than we really want to admit.
