I’m not dead…

I am not dead. Now that that’s out of the way, let me apologize for having not updated for nearly a month. I have just been super busy and super sick for the past three weeks, which, when coupled with the boringness of the daily grind, makes for a distinct lack of new entries on the panda blog.

New entries to come soon, I promise, starting with a general roundup. In the meantime, I updated the Moblog below, as well as the Momentary Interest Links over to the right.

Or, if you’re really bored, or new to the blog, you can check out a few of the more popular entries below:

Some of the entries lost their images when I transferred them over from the old blog, so I apologize for that. I’ll get around to fixing it one of these days!

But first… LUNCH TIME!


Now listening to: “Beirut – Scenic World”

the lights go on…
the lights go off…
when things don’t feel right…
i lie down like a tired dog
licking his wounds in the shade

when i feel alive
i try to immagine a careless life
a scenic world where the sunsets are all

    interesting point, maimai. i would agree that upon closer inspection yes, rosie o’donnell’s actions weren’t overtly racist in the way that her words directly oppressed someone. however, i wouldn’t call them innocent either.
    but how am i to ignore that horrible feeling when i watched that clip? i think it’s an indication that something is wrong. what i infer from her actions is that no one is demanding that she learn chinese or that even language is a vital identifier of culture.
    are you including me in your label of asian americans? it sounds rather hypocritical make such generalizations. although i do know of people like the type you describe, there’s a lot of bitterness in those words.

    Ashan, I will have you know my ayyy-lcohol intake has drastically lessened!! I am shocked, *shocked*, that you could imply otherwise! ^_^ I was merely advising panda as to the feelings of the general populace…
