no thank you.

You have got to be joking, right?
14 degrees in Texas? Really??? Really?
It's not even a pretty winter storm.
It's an icy, dangerous, 
people can't drive kind of winter storm.
So, snow gods, 
do everyone a favor and make it stop storming please.
I can barely drive as it is,
do you really think its safe for other drivers
 to be stuck on the road with me?
I think not.

no fun.

Dear Husband,
You actually look nice and healthy in this picture. Too bad you look nothing like that right now. Being sick really isn't your thing, huh? I mean, you look all green and yellow and you can barely speak.  You've been hugging the sink and the toilet the last couple of hours and you haven't even tried to play COD, not even once. You're exhausted, you can't eat, you can't sleep, you can't do anything but just lay there. The sad part is that you don't even have the energy to tell me what to do. Which is very bad because your wife, that would be me, has no earthly idea what to do. So, here I am staring at you..being sick. How is it that we've been together ten years and you have never really gotten sick, but the moment we get married you're deathly ill. Are you driving me crazy on purpose? So, let's make a deal. If I fry up all the bacon in the fridge and let you eat a block of butter, will you promise me to hurry up and get all fixed up? Because it's really no fun picking on you when you can't fight back. You have until tomorrow, if not, I'm throwing away all the bacon, the butter and your video games off the gameroom balcony. Just sayin.
Your wife.


I'm serious.
She's good.

for sale.

Danny Dinh has been shamelessly 
trying to sell his Linkin Park tickets in the comment box.
I know not everyone reads the comment feeds,
so I'm going to go ahead and help the guy out.
If you are free on February15th,
 and find yourself in the Houston area without anything to do,
you may just want to purchase two tickets
to the Linkin Park concert at the Toyota Center.
Trust me, they won't disappoint. 
So, check out your schedules and try to catch them live.
I'll be there, well the one in Dallas, of course.

stop, there's no point.

Don't waste your breath.
People will only hear what they wanna hear.

just a dream.

I can't even listen to the original song anymore.
It's just not the same....

wow, so cool.

Hey, is it just me or is it kinda dark in here?
It is right? Hmmmm......
You see that guy over there?
Yea...that one, the one to your left, 
the one with the really tight shirt on, yea him.
I know he's a stranger and everything but
maybe you should be nice and kind and break the news to him......
 tell him he's in a bar and he forgot to take his sunglasses off.
What if he's blind and he needs to wear them?
I don't see his seeing eye dog or his cane, so negative, 
I don't think he is blind.
What if he just had eye surgery and has to have them on??
 Yet he's at bar ? Umm, negative again.
You really...ooOO wait...he's looking at you.
Yes, I did see that, I did.
Yes, he did, he just lifted his shades up, 
winked at you and put them back on.
OH he comes....when he gets here.
can you ask your new boyfriend if I can borrow his sunglasses,
so I can wear them when the SUN is actually out.

fun times.

It's not what we do, 
or where were at,
it's the company we keep.
Thanks buddy,
we didn't do much but what we did,
we did it well =p
I was amused.


With your sad eyes and pretty face,
you smile a smile that doesn't quite stay in place.
Despite what the world sees,
how you truly feel no one will believe.
You can fool everyone else,
 but yourself......
you cannot deceive.
Stop pretending to be happy
and perhaps happy you'll start to be.

broken strings.

Looks fun and harmless, huh?
Not for you though, 
you know it's bad for you,
yet you always return for more.
Get off while you still can,
 before it's too late,
before it ruins your plans.


So good but so bad for you!!
Good luck and have fun guy.
Do try to come back with at least
the clothes on your back!!!

ummm, i like it?

I swear he sounds better then Kesha.
He also knows how to sing in French
He's a talented gummy bear.
What???  He is.

Is it bad that I find this song kinda catchy?
Would it be worst if I said I sorta like it?
Don't judge me.

now would be good.

sieze the day.

Try to live without regrets.
Say what you have to say
and do what you want to do.
You only live once!

let's go.

Boyce Avenue at House of Blues

See you there?

good friends.

I've been thinking, 
I'm no good at the whole friend thing.
I don't always like to hang out 
and I'm constantly in a rush.
I have poor timing and don't always keep in touch.
I'm forever rescheduling and doing rainchecks
and it seems like I can never make definite plans.
And even though it seems like I prefer 
the company of my books, 
and my k-dramas,
you guys never seem to hold it against me.
I'm a pretty shitty friend, yes,
but I am relieved that I have friends like you guys.
Thanks for taking me as I am.

good book, anyone?

There's something satisfactory about finishing a well written book.
The time invested is not wasted on characters 
you care not for or a storyline that is contrived.
Too bad there are not many good books out there lately, is there?
It's really getting tiresome, honestly, reading about female heriones 
without backbone trying to decide whom she loves more.
Perhaps we will get a story where the herione 
will get to decide who she wants to slice up?


Congrats my favorite cousins!!!
Bau, you've made Chan a happy man!
I sure hope the kid looks like you =p


they make me smile.
real big.

Monday, January 24, 2011

i'm serious.

for forever is an awfully long time...

vive la france!

Rich in history and full of wonders,
perfect for you.
Drink in the sights and immerse the culture.
Do all that and more
 but most importantly
find what you're looking for.

Leave your troubles behind friend.
and enjoy your time away.


It's so you guys!
Congrats Mai & Vo!!!


Yes, I do believe that's a diaper on his head....
but how cute is he?

Sunday, January 23, 2011

look familiar?

It's ok friend.
There is no need for embarrassment.
Everyone is entitled to a night of fun.

november's chopin

Yes. Jay Chou. Again.
I can't help it.
He plays five instruments,
writes his own songs,
directs his own videos,
and does his own stunts.
What more can one ask for?

walking on egg shells.

You can tip-toe around the issue all you want,
 but it's still going to be there.
It's best if you face the problem head on...

Thursday, January 20, 2011

good day.

It's Friday.
That alone should leave a smile on your face =p
Have a happy one everyone!!!

time flies.

Remember when nothing was impossible,
and super heroes were very much real?
We had no responsiblities and absolutely no worries,
those were the days.
Makes you want to go back, huh?

in the end.

You know what they say...
"what goes around, comes around."
So friend, fret you not
 for they'll get exactly what they deserve.

Wednesday, January 19, 2011

i like.

stuck in my head.

you ready?

Your heart is in pieces, yes,
but your pride is still intact.
Everyone is watching, so let's put on a show.
Shoulders back, heads up, stand tall....
Your world may be falling apart,
but no one needs to know.

Tuesday, January 18, 2011

careful friend, careful.

Pretty they are,
bound in good leather and 
wrapped with nice ribbons...
but you should know better then to judge a book by its cover.
All the pretties can easily disguise
what lies hidden inside.

no, let's not.

Hmm, I wonder if I've ever eaten grandpa?

yes, i love them.

 I love my heels. Alot.
I wear them when I teach.
They are also present when I coach basketball games.
My fondness for them extends to shopping excursions.
 And yes, I've worn them to the zoo.
I would wear them to sleep if I could.
But my love for heels has nothing to do with my IQ.
Judge me not by the shoes I wear.
A pair of shoes has nothing to do with my ability to teach, coach, or who I am.
If that were the case,
I would hate to see what your shoes say about you.

down my spine.

the violin and play again,
i don't know what will.

what to do.

Decisions, decisions, decisions...
you better make one soon.
The longer you wait,
the harder it gets.
Trust me.


It's funny how people ask questions
when they're not ready to hear the truth.
Let me go ahead and walk away because
you truly don't want to hear what I have to say.

Thursday, January 13, 2011

be ready.

Make excuses, make them well.
As for me, I'll be prepared, so I don't have to.


It's FRIDAY!!! 
I don't know about you guys,
but I'm super excited!!
Today marks Jay Chou's Hollywood debut.
I don't know how Green Hornet's going to fare in the box office
but you can bet that I'll be standing in line to watch it anyway.
I've been good all year...SO
please...please...please don't let this movie suck too bad.
*Just a couple more hours til I see you again Chou Jie Lin
until then I'll just listen to you sing in a language you can actually speak.

How hard is taking pictures?
Even Tommy can take pictures, 
look how good you and your lady turned out.
What? You guys were better subjects? 
Sadly, you are right.
I know I'm late, but thank you for taking a big part in our day.
Were not easy to work with, we argue too much,
and we aren't nearly as compliant as you would like,
but you stuck with us and made it work!!
Thanks for everything cousin.

*If you haven't seen it...
Chan just set up the site for our
wedding photography..
feel free to check out his work.
Btw...he doesn't just do weddings!!!

you will.

you'll be ok
just not today

love them.

they're fun,
they're easy,
and they're for a good cause!!!
So, what are you waiting for?

Tuesday, January 11, 2011

sparks fly.

I believe I like this better then the original..

a little longer.

I know it's a bit rough for you lately.
Hold on though, don't let go, don't give up, not like this.

Monday, January 10, 2011

for real.

Ok, I admit, 
I can exaggerate a little bit...
and sometimes I'm no good at keeping secrets...
but look who I learned it from. 

*it's been ten years,
clearly he is a bad influence.
This picture is old,
obviously, you can see it started then.
So, please don't blame me.
He is not nearly as quiet as he seems.

for the first time.

"We're smiling but we're close to tears"


The stories you tell...does it tire you?
You speak with such conviction,
are you starting to believe them yourself?
It's becoming harder to keep track of,
isn't it, your double life. 
It's going to catch up to you.
It's only a matter of time.
Don't say I didn't tell you.
That's all I owe you.

i do.

 Dirk, you know I love you, 
especially in that three piece suit. 
You look good, you really do,
no one can accuse you of looking like a caveman anymore.
But as much as I love you in that suit,
I think I'm ready to see you in that blue and white again.
Man, these losses are killing,
K-I-L-L-I-N-G me.
So yea, let's play some basketball yo.

Sunday, January 9, 2011

if you stay..

No Tommy.... 
I don't like the song just
because the whole video is shot in a library.
It's kinda a fun song.


The Colts, the Saints, and the Mavericks, really?
Did they all have to lose?
On the same freakin' day too?  Did they?
Go ahead, do it, just do it. 
Shoot me right there, 
no not the heart, that's already been ripped out,
yea, that's it, right there, in the face.

"I love the view from up here
The warm sun and wind in my ear
We'll watch the world from above"

you should already know.

That didn't make you feel any better did it?
 We learned a long time ago
that two wrongs don't make a right, remember?
Stop before it gets worst.
It's not worth it, friend.

Call of Duty, say what?

Umm, that was kinda sorta funny, right?
Only because it's so true...

say what?

so excited!!
what should i wear?
good grief,
fortune cookie,
is that all you could come up with?

back to the past.

I know it's dated...
but it's Jay Chou.
Does his music ever get old?

Tuesday, January 4, 2011

unfair, isn't?

He's giving you all that he's got.
The stuff in movies, it's not who he is.
Learn to love him,
not who you want him to be.

meme wins!!

Tommy:  haha. your boy Dirk got hurt.
Meme:    yes, genius. I know that.
Tommy:  you know what that means right?
Meme:    yes.  I do. It means that he loves me.
Tommy:  wtf?
Meme:    he was so devastated when he found out about our wedding
              that he couldn't concentrate on the basketball game and
              because of his distraction, he got hurt.  Now he can't play.
Tommy: umm, no. It means that they're going to get spanked
             the next couple of games because his poor little knee hurts.
             What a wuss!!
Meme:   a broken heart is not a minor thing. Laugh all you want.
Tommy: your heart doctor gave you some more of the good stuff again, huh?
Meme:   whatevs. Look at the dates. I got married. He got hurt.
             The dates match up.
Tommy: *&@@@$%#&*?
Meme:   What? That's all you got?
Tommy: ??????
Meme:  Yup, I thought so. My superior logic has rendered you speechless.
             I win.

Monday, January 3, 2011

that's how it is.

If you want the rainbow, 
you gotta put up with the rain.
Sorry, guy.

don't we all?

Wouldn't that be nice?

*hey friend, I'm sorry.  
I didn't mean to flake out on you again.
 I really forgot that I had work.
It's been 2 weeks off...
I'm allowed to be a little scattered.
I won't miss it next time.
Girl Scout Honor yo.

remember when.

One of my all time favorites.
Yes, another country song.
If you still don't like country music after you
listen to this song,
nothing is going to change your mind.

There are many things in life that will catch your eye. 
But only a few will catch your heart.
  -Ben Crenshaw

let it go.

"In three words I can sum up what I've learned about life: it goes on."
                                                                                             -Robert Frost
I'm no Robert Frost but I too can sum up 
what I've learned about life in three words: 
"get over it." 
Life doesn't get better until you do.


Yes, I like country music.
Gary Allan, especially.
When he sings, you feel it.
And yes, it does help that most of his songs
are accompanied with the sounds of string instruments.


"One sees clearly only with the heart. 
Anything essential is invisible to the eyes."
