Random Thought: If coconut oil comes from coconuts when you squeeze them, and peanut oil comes from peanuts when you squeeze them, same for vegetable oil... WHERE DOES BABY OIL COME FROM?!?!
It's hard to get to know you, but once people do, they're in for a wild ride. You had a rough childhood, and it reflects in your speech and mannerisms- you're focused on things like whores and crack babies, which fascinates people at first but may ultimately drive them away. Despite your somewhat depraved outward persona, you're a truly decent person who craves and deserves love and friendships.

Which Pixies song are you?

Whores and crack babies?!
Good lord.

The Pixies rule.

Don't get sick. If Steve starts grabbing, run for the hills. Pain . . .

"Why do I get the feeling that you're going to be the death of me?" - Obi-Wan Kenobi

God, I feel like crap.
It's 2 pm and I just woke up.
Paul stayed over 'till about 2 am, playing X-box and junk.
I stayed up listening to mp3's 'till 5 in the morning after he left.
Then I got up at 10 to return the X-box games to Blockbuster. Not the one near our apartment, the one in Fullerton near Starbucks. Long story. Don't ask.
After that, I came back and went back to sleep.

And now I'm here.


"Let's play another game, for dessert."
"Okay. So you'll get a happy meal AND an apple pie."

We had a little basketball game yesterday between our small group and Mark's senior class. We decided to play for dinner, which of course made everyone play hard(er). I didn't think it would be a fair game since we had Kim JDSN and Xiao on our team, but the game was actually pretty close. I guess having me and David on the team evened it out. Har har.
Anyway, we won the game with a score of 16 to 13.
Free dinner is good.
Free anything is good.

for shame.
i have taken all your darned quizzes.
i'm homer, a plain ol regular cone,
and i too am soulless.
however, in my state of denial,
i hav retaken the quiz and am now
an Evil-Doer.
that's right, EVIL-DOER!!

"ese, donchu kno i'm loco??"

I am absolutely soulless!

Find your soul type

It's probably not difficult for you to come to terms with because you most likely knew it already, but fie, fie! Why must you be so bitter?

Virtues: What is there to say? You have no virtues because you have no being. You care nothing about anything and not even anything about nothing! Either you're really messed up, or you lied in this silly test. ): You thought you could trick me?! Well, no! I demand you go retake it! Ptah, you rebellious kids and your nonsensical games.

Aspirations: Prankster, and you suck!

Quirks: Foolproof tests, like mine! Witty people who catch little snipes like you! Huh, huh?! Is that what bothers you?!

Factors:No! I won't HUMOR you now!

Future: You don't have one with ME, sonny! That's for sure!

I don't know whether to laugh or cry.
If I cared, that is.

"How come we play war and not peace?"
"Too few role models."

Memorial Day.
A day to remember those that fought valiantly to defend this great country of ours.
So, in rememberance of the brave soldiers, we played Counterstrike.

We had a clan match against Eric's clan, who call themselves G/S.
They say it stands for "Goliath/Shiva."
We say it stands for "gay sauce."

We're not really a clan or anything, and we didn't even have an official name, so we just went with "TMNT." (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!! best cartoon evar!)
Our team included me (Leonardo), Dooj (Donatello - "the smart one"), Paul (Slash - "the bad one"), Charles (Raphael - "the trash talking one"), Simon (Casey Jones - "the yelling one"), and Robert/Andrew (uhh I forgot what their name was... Shredder?? - "the filler ones").
Actually today was our second match, since we had already played them last Sunday. They got beat pretty bad that day, but they told us it would be different this time around 'cause it would be their "real team" and their "secret weapon" was going to play.


They got raped again.
Not as bad as last time, but still pretty bad. :-D
So we're 2-0.
We'll just retire now and go out as champs.

A jedi shall not know anger.
Nor hatred.
Nor love.

I saw Star Wars again.
It was actually better the second time. I told Adrian, and he agrees. I think it's because we had high expectations for the first viewing with all the hype going around. And for the second time, we knew what to expect, so it was just fun.
So after the second viewing I conclude that,

Yoda = still ownz j00.
Natalie Portman = ohhhh jessssss.
Anakin = whiny cry baby. I can't believe this fool is supposed to become the ultimate badass in a galaxy far, far away.
Obi-Wan Kenobi = funny guy. "You do not want to sell me deathsticks. You want to go home and rethink your life."
Jango Fett = nice dualies.

"This test sucks." - girl testing for bartender

I just got back from the test. It took 4 friggin' hours.
There were about 10 people there for testing, and most of them were servers (waiters). Well, the only people that passed their tests were the hosts (3 of us) and one lone server. The servers had to take more tests than us, and I could tell theirs was really hard. They have memorize all the items on the menu, the ingredients, in order, all abbreviations used for the menu, etc etc. Hard stuff. They have to come back tomorrow and retake the test.

Thank God I passed, so I could study for finals instead for my job.
They gave me the Hawaiian shirts, and I begin training on the 4th of June.

I can't believe I'm gonna wear this crap.
Mr. Cho farts soooo much.
oh man.
i memorized 4 distinct sounds of his farts.
and 8 distinct smells.
depending on what deborah's mom prepared that day.
good ol' mr. cho.
and mr. cho junior.
islands be trippin yo.
as jenseon would say,
"heem nae ra heem!"
Good times.

"I am Jack's throbbing brain."

I just studied liked two hours for a test that I have to take this morning at Islands. They're testing us on host duties, policies and procedures, and general information on Islands and junk. Man it's so hard!! I gotta memorize so much stuff! I'm just a host!
Is this normal? Do all restaurants do this?

I can't believe I just studied two hours for this. I haven't even started studying for finals yet!

"I am Jack's sleepy head."

Orientation was...interesting.

I arrived at about 7:45 AM (it started at 8 AM) and signed in. There were about 60-70 people there, all either white or Mexican. I naturally fit right in. About 3/4 of them were girls. God I hope that turns out to be a good thing.

Before the orientation could start, there was a little show/concert run by a guy in Hawaiian gear and a ukulele. He did like 8 songs(!), and I gotta admit he was pretty good. I could tell from the start that this was going to be very relaxed and maybe even fun(?!). After that, the actual orientation began.

They started by introuducing all the managers.
They had the lights dimmed, and played that NBA intro song that all the teams play (or used to play, especially the Bulls) in the background, while they came out of the back like we were at a basketball game or something.

Then we went around and introduced ourselves with our names and positions.
Good times. Not.

Then they read off some embarrasing moments that people wrote, and got to see who were the fools that pissed their pants in summer camp and make fun of them.

Next on the agenda: history of Islands.
I began to doze off at this point...

...I woke up, and we were done.
I went outside to get a pair of slip-free shoes that we all need to have. (they're very strict about the uniforms, shoes, hair, and look in general)
Great, I've already used $40 for a job that hasn't even started yet.

I didn't get to eat anything like Jen did.

What's with this "eye" business?!

Dance Dance Revolution

There was a dance production at Sunny Hills today, which I ended up attending due to Denise's request.
Several people from church were in it: Heidi, Sunny, and Sunghee(sp?).
Okay just three.

It was okay actually. There were some instances that caused some groans (ie. "Billie Jean" in ballet. By a guy. Alone. And no moonwalk?!)
And we had no idea that it was going to be so scandalous.
For shame, Heidi.
And what was with the blaring music near the end? Someone either really liked Blur's "Song 2" or they were just too deaf to notice how loud it was.
Speaking of "Song 2," I'm sorry but I don't think anyone should dance to that song. That song was made for people to jump and mosh to. Not for prancing around in your skivvies.
Other than that, not bad times.

After, we went to Denny's for dinner.
Not much happened:
A lot of talking and joking around.
And making fun of Eric.
Eric farts so much.
Like father like son.

Saturday, May 18, 2002

i remember my orientation at Oscar's...

they fed us EVERYTHING on their menu...
I ate EVERYTHING on their menu...
twas the night of great happiness... getting paid for eating...

but everything changed after that... hehe ^^

HEem nae ra HEeeem~!!

ps: you do have a new "bban jja gi nun" nooon bbit. it looks good on you~!
sup bonerino
hope orientation went well.
d'ju meet any cute coworkers?
although they're prolly all still in high school...

also, julie,
"that kinda stuff" never happened to me,
and though i'm relieved,
now i'm wondering
i must come off as a major freak of nature or somthin.
damn it.
i'll catch you crazy kidds tomorrow at church.
You're scaring me.
there is a "softer" look in your eye.

a few biting remarks drenched with sarcasm might change our minds.

good nite!

Friday, May 17, 2002

Nice?! What gave you that idea?
that kind of stuff happens to every girl!!!
it's not because we're hot.
it's because we're asian, and people like to pick on us.
it's stupid men's power-trip.

la di da.
jenny and i are in agreement.
we think you are nice.
doesn't that scare you???
you better fix yourself.
or we'll start petting you.
saying: "nice daniel"... pet pet pet.

"With great power comes great ownage."

Okay, Uncle Ben didn't say that. But he would have if he had seen Yoda in Episode II.

Yoda 0wnz j00!

Adrian and I went to see it today. This morning in fact.
We went to the 11:45AM (!!) show. He wanted to see it early so we wouldn't have to wait in line. I thought it was going to be empty, but it was actually pretty packed. Most of the audience were "little families."

So how was it?
Well..... not that great. But not bad either. It was... okay.
Definitely better than Episode I. But still disappointing.
We both agreed it doesn't have anything on Lord of the Rings. That's OUR "Star Wars."

Jules: What am I, your jester? "Are you not entertained?!"
Sorry I didn't make you laugh this time. I'll try harder.
Also sorry about that jerk hitting on you outside your apartment. It must be tough dealing with all those guys everyday. But that's the price you pay for being YOU. Muhaha.

How come guys never have that problem?
I'd be flattered if a girl did that to me.
I think.
Okay, maybe not. Only if she was hot like Julie.

Dijonnaise: Hosting begins, uh.... when the store opens. I guess. I have orientation this Saturday, then I think training begins next week. I'm not looking forward to orientation. Sounds like it's just gonna be some casual meeting for all the new hires, introducing each other and yakking it up.
Definitely not my kind of thing.
dear Mr. Boner.

oh man.
all these deep thoughts on your blog.
i came here to laugh, man!!!
can you get with the program.

just kidding!
hi daniel.
how the heck are you.
i am fine.
not that you asked.

Lend me your hope for awhile,
I seem to have mislaid mine.
Lost and hopeless feelings accompany me daily,
pain and confusion are my companions.
I know not where to turn;
looking ahead to future times does not bring forth
images of renewed hope.
I see troubled times, pain-filled days, and more tragedy.

Lend me your hope for awhile,
I seem to have mislaid mine.
Hold my hand and hug me;
listen to all my ramblings, recovery seems so far distant.
The road to healing seems like a long and lonely one.

Lend me your hope for awhile,
I seem to have mislaid mine.
Stand by me, offer me your presence, your heart and
your love.
Acknowledge my pain, it is so real and ever present.
I am overwhelmed with sad and conflicting thoughts.

Lend me your hope for awhile,
a time will come when I will heal,
and I will share my renewal,
hope and love with others.

*Adapted from the poem "Lend Me Your Hope," author unknown.

"I am Jack's broken heart."

I just came back from doing some paperwork for the new job. Since they weren't too keen on my pierced eyebrow, I took the barbell off in the morning before I left. The meeting lasted 2 hours, consisting lots of signing, greeting, joking, yadda yadda yadda. So I come back home, and try to put the barbell back on. (keyword: try)

It doesn't go in.

Hmm... maybe if I push a little harder... Oww that hurts! Crap, it's not going in.

Daniel: "Dude it's not going in!"
Adrian: "What... it can't close up that fast, can it?"
Daniel: "Oh my goodness. It's only been 2 hours! How can it close up already?!"
Adrian: "You're Wolverine man. Super healing powers."

Buh-bye my little barbell. I shall miss thee.
I hate this job already.

Wednesday, May 08, 2002

"I'm always saying 'Glad to've met you' to somebody I'm not at all glad I met. If you want to stay alive, you have to say that stuff, though."

Well, I guess the interview went pretty well since they scheduled a second interview tomorrow.
That's good right? I mean, I basically got the job right?


Sorry to disappoint you ladies, but they told me I'll start as a host first. Then based on my performance, I'll move up to being a waiter.
So I'll be a host for 5 years.

Crap. I have to sing birthday songs?! I totally didn't think of that. And their work clothes are so.... so... gay.*
I'm gonna have to rethink this whole waiter thing.

*No offense to all the gay people out there reading this. No wait, only like 5 people read this. And I don't think any of them are gay.
Except maybe Steve.
Just kidding Steve.
Don't get your nipples piercing that tight shirt of yours.
can you imagine mr. bones
in a hawaiian shirt singing
birthday songs whenever that
occasion arises??
please, o please get the job.

Good luck Daniel!! I love ISLANDS.. they have the yummiest veggie burger ever...!!~ Hahah...if you get the job, I will indeed laugh... daniel: the waiter!! No, i'm sure you will be the STAR waiter !
I shall pray that you will dazzle everyone at Islands and get the job there!
One minute movie review of Spiderman: KICK ASS. It was very good. It had laughs, drama, romance, explosions, wrestling, special fx, fighting, and everything else. Best comic book movie evar? Possibly. Good times.

I have a job interview tomorrow at Islands. It's weird cause I've never been to one. Actually, I've never even seen one.
Anyway, I'm applying to be a waiter/host. I have never served food in my life. And you all know how sociable I am. Wouldn't it be hilarious if I actually got the job?
Pray for me.
I'll need it.
i heard about that # on kroq before...
i think they do hav one in cali actually.
funny stuff. funny stuff.
kroq actually called it so i heard
the operator an'
funny stuff. funny stuff.
Link of the day: Too bad they don't have one here in California. (yeah, like I really need it. pshaw.)

Jen: of course he is. I knew that already. He dances naked all the time. I'd join him, but I'm not as good as he is.

Steve: Jesus H. Christ you posted that friggin' message on every blog possible! More praise... how GRAND. And there's cafe night... what is this, praise week? Maybe I'll see you there boy.

"Grand. There's a word I really hate. It's a phony. I could puke everytime I hear it."
