2 more Harry Potter 5 book sightings today. Stay tuned for more news on the Harry Potter watch. Hehe.

I always knew that Chinese folks were very into the concept of “face.” I pretty much grew up with always trying to make sure that my family does not lose face by me doing something mortifyingly embarassing.

Well, today, I read an email by one of my co-workers, and he wrote about how he kind of lost face in front of some business associates. (!!) Not that white folks don’t have a sense of “face,” it’s just that I would never picture them using the term “face.”

I suppose with America becoming more and more diverse, cultures and traditions are bound to mix as well. With people becoming more colorblind as the years go by, eventually, there won’t be “pure races” anymore. What will we end up with?

Whew. A fun weekend in LA it was indeed. I just love watching my friends get married. Time to sleep though. Tomorrow it’s digital picture processing for me!

Woah. There’s a new blogger! It’s pretty sleek and neat looking.

So I was on the train this morning and purposely looking for yet another Harry Potter reader and I found one! Heheh.

Enough Potter talk right? Heh. Let’s see, I went climbing yesterday and boy was it HOT in the gym? Holy smokes! I felt all the energy draining from my body as I tried to climb. The heat always seems to suck away my strength. I still managed to pull out 4 climbs though: 5.7, 5.9, 10b, 10c.

Alrighty, time to finish packing my bags. I only half packed last night. Yeah, shocker isn’t it? I’m leaving tomororw and I’m not done packing already! Amabelley would be proud…

In all of my daily train riding, I’ve never seen anybody read the same book that I was reading. Today though, I broke that streak as I saw a lady sit down next to me who also happened to be reading book 5 of Harry Potter. Hehe. I found it somewhat amusing since the books have been hyped up so much.

Hooray! My new volleyball shoes were waiting for me in my room when I came home. They fit perfectly and I can’t wait to use them.

I’m always a bit concerned when shopping online for items that I would wear such as clothes or shoes. Sure I know what shoe size I wear, but different brands size up their shoes differently. Plus, if a shoe is more pointy, then it will scrunch up my toes. Then there’s the clothes thing. I might wear an XS for one item or an S for something else. THEN, maybe I would want an M for yet another item.

If stuff doesn’t fit, you can exchange it, but I think you end up getting shafted on the postage. It’s a conspiracy I say!

Sweet, I hit a mega number! I think I’ll let it ride for the next Lotto drawing. Yeah, I don’t usually buy tickets, but my friend and I had such good perfect timing when it came to parking spaces that we thought that it would be fate for us to buy a quickpick lotto ticket at the perfect moment. Heehee.

Blah. I played my heart out, but alas, it was not nearly good enough to make it further into the playoffs. I’m got to get out this funk.

Woah, this Friendster thing is getting huge. I remember my friend C sending me my first Friendster request maybe 1 or 2 months ago. There weren’t so many people I was connected to at the time, but now it’s insane! It’s funny how within the Bay Area, I have multiple connections to random people I don’t know. Hehe. Everybody knows everybody else right?

And just when I thought the Macarena was dead, I saw this 10 year old girl on standing on the street outside her parents’ car doing the dance with only the music playing in her head. Hehee.

Again with the commuting observation stories…

I was just kinda looking around the train and noticed that this one guy’s thumbnail was white. I thought it was kinda strange because guys don’t usually paint their finger nails. I mean, it wasn’t even the shiny kind of white. It was more like what you would get if you used white out to paint your nail.

So then I thought I wouldn’t jump to any conclusions until I see the rest of his fingernails, but unfortunately for the longest time, his hands were kinda curled so I couldn’t see them. My patience paid off because in one instance, he straightened his hand and I could see that the rest of his nails were white too.

Okay, so my NEXT thought was that it’s not impossible for him to have some sort of condition. I’m not aware of any such condition, but hey, I’m not a doctor or anything. Alright, so if he has some strange condition, then it’s very unlucky for him.

After looking at his thumbnail again, I noticed that a smidgen of the white got on to the area adjacent to his thumbnail. You know, the evidence of a poor manicure job, not that I’ve actually ever gotten one, but I imagine if you’re not careful, you can paint a bit more than just the nail.

So my conclusion is that for some odd reason, whether it was a dare or his SO wanted it, the guy I saw on the train had white painted finger nails. How odd. What will I see next?
