asia here i come
well the flood gates are officially open. i was up till 4 am [hey, there was a big tremor!!] last night neurotically studying the entire history of chinese and japanese cinema. so i was late to class but hey sacrifcies, you know?
so far today im watching with idm-ified clare de lune over, wong kar wai’s happy together, about some gay hong kong men in buenos aires, and i have a cake by my side ready to go. prettttty good. to quote blair waldorf, ‘happy birthday to me!’
it may be time [film alert!]
it is time at last. it is time to foray into asian cinema. oh sure I’ve knocked around some kurosawa and some moderns here and there. But I avoided full devotion, knowing of the dams that would come crashing in. But its time to let the humid clitter clatter flutter in . I’m having trouble finding Yang’s 80’s taipei story. Gotta see that. I’m also gonna try to start...
am i old ?
So as I approach my 2 days away 25th bday, I recount to you a recent occurence, the first time a student declared I was older than his parents, in a bit more shall we say…poor neighborhood. This little 8 year old, adorable, walks in with gelled down hair, sagging pants, and throwing out huevonhuevon cachai BACAN. and he’s so flaite and so cute. He gives his friend a bro whats up...
talk like a brazilian
so apparently talking like a brazilian is the chilean idea of snobby spanish, perhaps our french intonation. I had these little monsters who kept busting out their own whiteboard markers! I’m like…why do you have these? They say oh our teacher never has them, she says ‘alguien tiene plumon’…talkin all brazilian. and then they imitate her so funny brazilian. I dont...
filled out my ncaa tourney bracket in about 2 minutes. based on some of my choices, i look forward to bringing up the rear in the fam per usual. i even picked kansas, because i dont know, too much good sports luck last year. wish we still had bill self man!
slightly less obvious fragments from buenos aires
calabaza [butternut squash] flavored sauce, in all manners of texture, served with your bread taxi drivers who think maradona is a bad coach american tourists that aren’t white OR middle aged taxi drivers who play techno in their cabs, rather than the latin ballads of santiago wide wide lanes very short shorts/skirts paired with long droopy tops stripes luscious luscious sweaters out...
so i’ve been engaged in this mini-saga to buy my make-up in duty free.– becca
today i saw someone at the lider wearing a ‘tab’ shirt! my soulmate! in other news my hands have 7-8 bug bites on them and my hips and legs have quarter sized bites. boo chilean insects i dont have a tolerance for! but maybe benadryl is fun……hmmmm
‘speak english?’ in line with my imaginary husband series soon to be debuted, i want to respond to this now saying ‘solo hablo ruso.’ From that point on, everything they say in Spanish I look on with utter confusion, all English menus and overtures disturb me. I say in broken spanish——carta??? ruso??!! and get angry that they dont have a russian menu. then I...
jonathan toews got his very own history will be made commercial!
today was a good day
trademarked by Ice Cube. Went down to the far away forest park that overlooks cliff/epic beach. Of course, it was epic to get there. Stand around, hope a bus may or may not come. Guy stares at you. [Ooh, add LA Dodgers to the sports list, and this one with a Us flag in the letters!]. What’s with men staring at extranjeros. Its like a combination of being confused at the extranjero and that...
pure fish essence.
Today I bought a fresh box full to the brim with salmon eggs. They NEVER have them in stock at sushi places in Santiago, and now I know its all excuses excuses. I made pasta with a bunch of garlic, salt, and fresh herbs from the ladies garden! All this after resting under a pear tree, playing with the homosexual foot attacking duck who I want to be my new best friend. Maybe I need a pet. No, I...
I’ve decided to keep a shortlist going of sports team gear I see…in Chile, of course hoping to complete the big 4 leagues. Just offhand, in the last 4 or 5 days we have… [note: i seem to have reattained sports buff status. somehow people believe this ive just met listening to a convo the day before. I guess I’ve gotten over the college era peer influence lack of interest...
