Year of the Ox!



Here is a card for you!














That's right, it says "Have a Cracker of a Time."

Half of me was offended by this card, until I realized they meant FIRE-cracker.   

HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR, EVERYONE!

That's offensive.

One time I almost got into a fight on the subway (meaning, I ran away) when I bumped into a large black guy and he yelled, "MOVE IT CRACKER!" at me.

I'm celebrating Chinese New Year today for the first time. I'm attempting to make egg rolls and lettuce wraps. With my friends that are coming over, we are going to speak only chinese (or our version of it for at least 15 minutes)! I'm excited! I wish you were here to teach us how to celebrate Token asian Friend.

To celebrate, eat potstickers (egg rolls are close enough), noodle soup (with long noodles) and fry a fish with it's head still attached. Then, give each other money in red envelopes. Don't break anything today! And, eat radish cakes. Also, sweep your house!

And, don't forget to light your crackers!

Cute picture of the"asian" children. However, I am horribly reminded of a firecracker incident of 1975 where John Ingolio convinced me to hold a firecracker until it blew up in my hand. THankfully, my parents weren't home and the feeling shortly returned to my fingers. Blast that John!

Speaking of crackers... er, I mean fire crackers and hands. Reminds of this guy whom I work with.

Boy, the music accompanying that card just gets more annoying the longer it takes you to click through the myriads of browser windows you have open until you find yourself scratching your head going, "where IS that annoying music coming from?!"
