K, I think I need to recap on this past weekend. I didn’t end up going to Fajitafest on Friday… By the time I got out of my Camp Texas meeting it was already like 5:30 and there was traffic on the freeway. There was no way I was gonna make it to Zilker Park and then make it to the 7:00 Silk Mangos show…
So yeah, I just sat around here at the apartment thinking that the show wasn’t gonna start on time but yeah, I was wrong… I still had to pick up April Grace cuz she said she wanted to watch the show.
So the BIG SHOW was pretty big.. I liked it alot…there was a good balance between serious and funny. Not too long ago after our Opressionfest thing at A&M, I talked to Heidi about how after last year’s show I kinda thought that the shock value on the opression thing kinda went overboard to where non-asian people were getting the idea that us asians were angry about these incidents of injustice.. Like I kinda said about the conference at A&M, it’s good to recognize that there are occurrences of racism and injustice towards Asians, but let’s move on and focus on the positive aspects of Asian culture. I just think that the Silk Mangos are a huge voice for the asian american community at UT…and yeah.. getting a positive message out is always good. So anyway, when I was watching the show, I was like wondering if my input had an effect on the show… I think it kinda did.
Man, some people were just acting stupid duing the show.. Ya know, making FSA look bad. I laughed when I heard Margaret go “Shut up albo!”.. Hehe.
Anyway, I took April home down to Riverside afterwards..I asked if she wanted to hang with the rest of us after the show but she doesn’t feel too comfortable around FSA.. I pushed her a lot last semester to get involved in FSA but she didn’t budge. I don’t know how you can not want to get involved in FSA..
Right, so I drove up to 303 where we drank it up… I was begging to get piss drunk cuz i hadn’t felt like that in so long. And that I did. I had nothing to eat the whole day so I was gone pretty quick. I remember doing that pee-wee herman dance to “Tequila”. I passed out while watching Jackass and woke up when I guess everyone had left to Sixth street.. all the minors were left behind..hehe. Yeah, so I was puking hardcore.. that’s what happens when you lay down. it’s all good. Good times.
Okay, so next day was the Texas Relays. Xerx cancelled on me and so did Janie… So thankfully Larae was still down.. Dang, talk about a ton of black people… It was like that last year. It was pretty tight… I love track… Some guy had run a 9.92 100m..i forgot from where.. and during the 4×400 these high school girls were posting like 55 splits on each leg.. dang. It’s just amazing to see how built some of these athletes were. I can talk about this forever, but I’ll move on.
I went back down south to pick up Jae so we could head to Fuddrucker’s for Edita’s birthday.. Good eating…then we headed back to 303 for some cake.. We turned on the Kansas game and Marquette got whooped. We watched the Texas game at Rob’s and yeah, it sucks that we lost. I wanted to punch that smile off of Carmelo Anthony’s face. Oh yeah, a ton of people were hooked on TextTwist on Yahoo. I tried playing it on my own earlier and it’s a lot harder. Heh. Oh I was so annoyed by a particular person who needs to think before he speaks. Just some of the comments made were so uncalled for.
Umm..yeah, so today was really uneventful… I went to St. Austin’s for church at 11:30.. and for all of today I didnt’ do much… I watched the Women’s game and that loss was even harder to deal with… Grr, they coulda had that damn game. Oh yeah, I cooked some beef broccoli… I had to start using up all the food in the fridge before it goes bad. Aight, fuck, this blog was so long. I’m out.
