Intern #2's Desk:
Below: View of the desk drawar.
Guess which desk is mine.
Can I just say that the makers of Life-Savers are geniuses for coming up with the idea of selling an entire roll of lifesavers that consists of ONLY wild cherry flavor? That's so awesome!
Now, if only Sour Patch kids would only sell bags of cherry flavored gummis.

"Hahahah, that's so funny. Hahaha. You make me sound like a jerk when you put it that way."
... ... ... ...
Take a guess at who the participants of the conversation were.

I tried to save my appetite and just have fair food for dinner, but my stomach couldn't hold out so I had to have a bowl of instant noodles after I got home from work. But trust you me, I saved room for the fair food.

Again, what's up with the Jumbo Tenderloins?
FYI -- Elephant Ears = Fried Dough with Cinnamon Sugar = REALLY YUMMY IN THE TUMMY
Chicken-on-a-stick really is just chicken on a stick.
And this is chicken-on-a-stick-with-ketchup-and-mustard.
And now I must go drink a gallon of water to try to digest the elephant ears and chicken-on-a-stick that I just ate.

I really wanted to go see several summer blockbusters, but being in the location that I am, I really didn't know where the nearest movie theater was so I honestly thought I wasn't going to be able to see any movies for the rest of my summer. Luckily, I guess, I somehow became the "celebrity intern" and now have a list of attorneys to turn to when I need a ride somewhere. Of course, it's weird to just call up someone and say "hey, wanna go to the grocery store?" but at least it was easier on my stress level to know that there were people willing to take me places.

Here are some balloon blow up jumpy thingys. The kid I was with had a fun time jumping on those things while his parents and I were standing in the sun waiting for some adult activities to start. The kid also got dust everywhere on his body -- I was afraid how his mother was going to react with him getting into their clean car.
They had a petting zoo at the festival. This tortoise was trying really hard to get out of his metal cage. There was also a llama and a small kangaroo (aka joey). They charged $3 to "enter" the zoo, when one could easily see all the animals from outside.
Balloons! But I don't think the festival is about this kind of balloon.
For adult entertainment, there was a skydiving show. You can't see it here, but there's a skydiver somewhere in those clouds. And that's a giraffe's head.
We kept sitting around, waiting for the balloon competition to start.
And eventually, we just left after two hours of waiting because it was "too windy" for the hot air balloon competition to start. Who knew that you had to have a non-windy day for hot air balloons to take off?

I sent the box over three weeks ago. I still haven't received the box.
USPS said they probably lost it.
Very very sad right now. I bought such nice things from China. And they weren't just things for me to use. It had gifts I was going to send to my friends and my parents. And because of the stupid postal service, I will never see those China souvineers again, and my friends and parents will never see the cute stuff I bought for them.
Very upset right now.

*okay, for some reason, the website doesn't give the direct link to the bio I wanted to share. Click on the link above, then click on "Our People", then click "Attorneys" and do a search for "Kevin Gliwa." Very funny, trust me. *
This is what you can do when you become a shareholder of a law firm: write your own bio AND get it published.
#1. Yes, it's true. I did work in a nail salon at one point in my life. Note the word "did", as in "the past" as in "not anymore." Although, my parents insist that I continue to renew and keep current my nail technician license. So technically, if I wanted to, I could still legally provide manicure services in the state of Massachusetts.
However, the fact that I used to do nails does not mean that the stereotype is true for every Vietnamese. Especially a Vietnamese who is wearing a very nicely tailored suit jacket and skirt and does not look like she is headed for work at a nail salon.
#2. Yes, it's been a very bad week -- mood wise. So yes, I'm a little more bitter than usual.
So shoot me.

I was sitting on the bus this morning, all decked out in a power suit and rocking out to my iPod, when I felt this tap on my shoulder. I ignored it, because I was not in a social mood. But the tapping continued. So I whipped around -- with earphones still in my ears -- and this Asian guy asks me something that I can't hear because you know, my earphones are in my ears. I shake my head and turn around again because I really am not in a very social mood at 8 am in the morning. This guy, however, kept tapping my shoulder.
I pulled one earphone out of an ear and asked, "WHAT?!?"
Weird Asian Guy: Are you Filipino?
Me: No, I am not.
And then I stuck my earphone back in my ear and turn around again. Weird Asian Guy continued to tap on my shoulders.
This time, I pulled out my earphones and glared at him as I turned around.
Weird Asian Guy: Are you Chinese then?
Weird Asian Guy: Then what are you?
Weird Asian Guy: You work at a nail salon, huh? All Vietnamese works at a nail salon.
Me: No, I do not.
I turned around again, thinking "What the fuck? I'm wearing a suit jacket and skirt with high heels on. Does it look like I'm dressed up to go to work in a nail salon?"
Weird Asian Guy continued tapping my shoulder and I'm thinking why can't this guy take a hint?
So, note to all you bus riders: DON'T BOTHER ANYONE WITH EARPHONES IN HIS/HER EARS. They might not want to talk to you.

The Boy: I hope you enjoyed it.

Here, is the view to your left. See, told you. Middle of no where.
I feel so isolated out here.
I got the 4th of July off from work. I also got Thursday and Friday off too. No way in hell was I going to spend six days in the middle of nowhere with no friends around. So I rented a car and decided to make the 6.5 hours drive down to Kansas City to meet up with some law school buddies.
This is the view after the first hour of driving.
Hour 4 -- Look another car on the road!
Hour 4.5 -- The Mississippi River (it's behind the guard rails).
Hour 5.5 -- no idea where I am right now but it's somewhere in Northern Missourah.
Hour 6.5 -- Kansas City!
... ... ...
And I have to do that boring drive all over again on Sunday. Perhaps I should look into a more exciting route.
