I thought I saw someone I knew last night on facebook – and so I added them as a friend. Facebook doesn’t let you see someone’s profile unless you are already a confirmed friend with them OR you went to the same college (and sometimes even then not). I looked at her profile today and discovered… I don’t know who the hell this girl is. Apparently she went to school with me just like the girl I thought she was…but…she…

BCAM

BCAM

Sunday afternoon I went to LACMA with Aaron, Ethan and Alicia. I finally found out what those “BCAM BORN” signs are all about that have been on LA light posts for months. BCAM stands for the Boone Contemporary Art Museum. I don’t think the building was even there when I was at LACMA last fall. The goal of Mr. Boone (the founder of SunAmerica) was to make Los Angeles the world’s center for contemporary art. To do so he bought…

better and better

Yesterday I got my blood test results back. We went down the list and I was perfectly normal in every category… checking off the list… no viral infection at all (I had thought maybe I had mono)… wait… what is this one… right at the end…the very last one… TSH levels are low. What does that mean? Apparently it means my thyroid gland is overproducing the hormone T3. A condition called Hyperthyroidism. They are giving me an ultrasound on my…

sad story

sad story

I read this story this morning and it pained me. It seems that even after a massive failure of the system – organizations never learn. I mean, hello, you’ve got another depressed Korean man telling people he bought a gun AT VIRGINIA TECH! But even more-so the reason this guy killed himself is probably the saddest of all. I’m sure anyone with a beard and/or turban felt the same way in the months after 9-11. How hard is it for…

On Sunday Beverly, her mother and I headed to the Antelope Valley Poppy Reserve. I had never heard of it before, but after telling people where I’d gone they all had heard of it before and heard it was great. Well, it was great, although not as great as some other parks I’ve been to (Red Rocks). For some accurate photos click here. I may have some of our own photos up next week – as they were all on…

For 27 years I played a game with myself. That game was: How long can I get away with not having my own suit? I wished I had one a few times before (Andrea’s wedding, mixer at the British CG’s estate, etc.), but on Saturday I had an admissions interview for the MBA program at UCLA and I knew it was game over. So, with four hours to go until kick-off -Beverly and I walked into 3-Day Suit Broker in…

Friday night I met up with Kent and Melody at Manna. It was the second time I’d met Kent there in probably six months. This time though they had the Korean equivalent of Heineken girls walking around in little outfits next to a big green bottle mascot. Kent played their little game and won a GB USB drive. When he told the waitress later that he was going to take the beer (that he had to buy to play the…

pearls of wisdom

My father posted a comment to my last blog entry – and it sounded so compacted full of goodness that I wanted to post it on “top.” “Pearls are made thru constant stress on the oyster.” He was being a great dad and trying to cheer me up during this great time of stress – but later it occured to me.. “don’t they have to kill the oyster to get the pearl?” …but maybe I’m completely wrong. I also thought…
