The 5-Minute Facial Workout

If there aren’t already, someone should make youtube videos of themselves doing these workouts because I want to laugh at them.


American Born Chinese

Read this all in one day. It was really good, but also it was a quick read. I couldn’t help but think of my book proposal while I read this and how similar (growing up in a conflicting environment between personal culture and North American culture) and yet different (my life is very gay) it is. I related a bit to this, and it was interesting to me because I didn’t have such an identity crisis growing up in Vancouver as the main character did in this book. I’m first generation, but there was never any racism in elementary school or with teachers. Then again, there were a lot more Asian/Chinese kids in my school, so I’m sure we all became normalized to the fact that Vancouver wasn’t a white city.

As for my underwear, I think it’s supposed to be a jockstrap thing built into the underwear itself. It’s kind of funny-looking in that makes my dick stick out, and not particularly in an attractive way. Not sure how I feel about it. Maybe I’ll decide once I wear it a bit more. What do you think?


And back to normal

The day after I get an acceptance from a literary publication, I get another rejection which I expected. Back to normal indeed. Or back to jadedness?

Swallows and Amazons

‘What’re you reading?” an older man on the SkyTrain asked me one day. I held the book out to him.

“What’s it about?”

“It’s about this group of kids who sail to an island and live there.”

“Oh, so like Lord of the Flies?”

“Uh, not really. It’s a lot more innocent than Lord of the Flies. A lot.”

And I suppose it should be, given that it’s a children’s book. There are no big struggles with each other or with the island. Food is always a boat ride away. It’s a simple, pleasant book that I think a lot of people would remember fondly if it was read to them as a kid (I am not one of those people).

I picked this book to read next to fulfill my quota for children’s books because it’s on the list of the 100 books you should read compiled by the BBC many years ago, a list I haven’t managed to cross off because I’ve been too busy reading other books on my other lists. This one brings up my total to 39. A decent number, but one that I hope to increase before the end of the year.

After so many rejections, when you get an acceptance, sometimes you just want to cry because you feel like someone finally gets you.

Way too long

Sometimes it takes me way too long to type up something as short and trivial on my blog like this post.

Why is the Penis Shaped Like That?

For those who ever wondered.
