stuff, stuff, and blah stuff

The days seem so boring lately...

Everything is so routine. And you know what? I haven't had any "incidents" at work lately. Not that I want any, mind you...

Blah.

Something's wrong.

Actually, I think that the fact that there is NOTHING wrong is what makes everything seem so wrong, ya know?

-----------------------------------------------------------

Tomorrow is the baptism for my cousin Eric's kid. I'm supposed to be one of the godfathers.

I don't want to go. I don't want to be any part of it. Not that I don't like the kid or anything, I just don't want anything to do with Eric.

That's not a bad thing, is it?

You know how when you go into a grocery store, sometimes the cheezy background music that plays throughout the store catches your ear and you can recognize what song it is, even if it's something like some Britney Spears song played on an organ or something?

I drove my dad to a chinese grocery store in Newark or Fremont or Milpitas or whatever, and as soon as I walked in the first thing I noticed was the background music, because it was all in Chinese and stuff. So around 15 minutes pass by, and although I know the songs are different, they all sounded the same, because my illiterate ass doesn't know any Chinese...

So we're looking at some fresh fish, talking to my dad about which ones to get, when I faintly hear, "mmm bop" (you know, the Hanson song...) but then when I paid full attention to the music, all I heard was Chinese. I thought I was trippin; then I payed closer attention.

"chinesechinesechinese, mmm bop ba doo dop, ba doo bop, so on and so forth, morechinesemorechineseandsomemore, mmm bop ba doo dop, ba doo bop, etc..."

I mean the song is bad enough, but damn, to remake it in Chinese? Come on now...
