Wow, I can't believe I still have this thing. I think I'm going to be using this for annoying personal posts that I don't want to clog up my Tumblr.

I went to the International Festival today and it was a lot of fun. I haven't had a Saturday off since last fall and the weather was nice.

I saw a performance put on by the Chinese Cultural association (I think?), and it was amazing. It wasn't what I expected at all. One of the dances was really fast and was kind of like flamenco + Bollywood.

I got a pencil case made in Ghana from recycled plastic bags and a wallet made from recycled rice bags from Cambodia, a banner with Tibetan prayer flag thingies on them, and handmade olive oil soap from the West Bank.

Oh ma lawd, the conversations I've had today.

My mom wanted to stop at Burger King while we were out this morning.

Mom: I can't believe he - oh wow, they have double cheeseburgers for $1.
Me: You get distracted so easily.
Mom: I know, I have such a short att-oh look, it's a little black kitten
Me: (dying)

On the way home from work:

Dad: Oh look, they've got a new thigh restaurant
Me: Thigh?
Dad: Yeah Thighland, you know?
Me: Thailand...
