Still catching my breath. What an amazing game. Go Illini.

Back from LA. LA was good. I might post up some pics later, but I will show you all one. On the way back last night at the airport, we saw:
1) guy with lots of bling
2) with Louis Vuitton suitcases
3) with large large men around him.

We soon realize it is Omarion from B2K.

Things to know:
1) Jeff made Erika go talk to him and pull the girl-card to take a picture with us.
2) Omarion looks like Dee Brown.
3) Omarion is shorter than Erika. Last time I checked, Erika is no Gheorge Muresan.
4) Notice the bling (earings and watch) and those two massive men in the background?
5) One of the first things I thought to myself after meeting Omarion was, "This is what it feels like to be Peggy."
6. Dont I look tan?

The guy from "Sister, Sister" was there too, Marques Houston. We got a free sample cd or something. Omarion is a nice guy. Cool.

Tres interesting.

BaMBoO KiD: i am victim
BaMBoO KiD: to bigophobia
BaMBoO KiD: hahaha

I have a weird affection towards NPR too. Their reporters seems to all have soothing voices. Or maybe it's just me. I need to listen to it more.

In other news, I have scratches on my face and I don't know how they got there.

Mraz Mrules.

The concert was awesome. Erika, Jeff, and I trekked out to Decatur, IL to see him for $5 at Milikin. FIVE DOLLARS!!! And it was in an auditorium, so a) I got to sit down and b) the seats were big and I had massive legroom. All that plus Jason Mraz equals one awesome concert. PLUS, I got to see my old SIUE friends Susan and Hannah!

Hannah, Erika, and Jeff

Susan and Me.

Toca and Mraz onstage

Great show, great songs. He is a really funny guy, a really creative songwriter, and a captivating performer. Basically, Jason Mraz is amrazing.

Erika says that if I liked this concert so much, we should definitly hit up the Matt Wertz concert down at EIU next month. Will Matt be better or wertz than Jason? Well based on tonight's turnout, I could have a wertzerful time finding out.

I am too funny and clever with these names though, arent I? Yes, I, Jon, should be arrested, because making puns with names should be illeegal. Ah hee hee hee, I did it again!

After we came back from Decatur, we went to Canopy for the Asian scene. It was alright, but definitly an interesting time. I leave you with the inside joke picture of the night:

"She would punch me in the throat"

While I was in Europe over winter break, I was waiting for some food at a counter. I was talking to Jenny and Wil et all back at our table, and a guy sitting at the counter overheard me. He asked, "Where are you from?", and I said from America, but I assumed he wanted to know which Asian country my parents were from since that is what Europeans really want to know when they ask that question, so I also said Taiwan. The guy, who was a mid-20s skinny English guy, then said "oooh, I see, well I'm sorry for you." I asked him in a cautious tone why and he said, "I heard its really hard for minorities in America."

Two reactions. First, I felt like he was making fun of my home country of America. Second, because of that, I quicly responded "oh no no, it's not bad," although you know, it can be sometimes. So maybe I was lying.

But yea. I wonder what makes him, and other foreigners, think that America is a hard place for every minority. Is it? Maybe. But what makes it so noticeable to the outside world? And what is it that is so bad here in the US that it gets attention in non-American society (tv shows, newspapers, movies, music)?

A lot of questions now, not a lot of answers yet.

Oh those crazy TAF boys going back to Taiwan and getting in commercials. Once? Cool. Twice? Whoa, TAFers are awesome! Thrice? Um...OK, was/is there something in the Calvin/Manchester water that makes us really really ridiculously good-looking towards Taiwanese advertising agencies?

So basically, if I go back to Taiwan and stay there for a few years, I can get into the world of male modeling...

...wait, did I already do that with my glamour shots?

Reoccuring dream:

1. I go with some friends, I think its usually been Erika, to some sort of event at a park/rural area/farm etc on the outskirts of a city. Picture it looking like the hobbit village in LOTR. Last night it was an Illinois basketball pep rally and Bruce Webber was there and bought us pizza.
2. We leave the event in some sort of confusion and I'm driving. I somehow drive my car up a flight of stone stairs, realized that I can't go all the way up this said flight of cobblestone stairs, and then turn around on the stairs and drive back down, while freaking out that the bottom of my car will scrape the bottom of the stairs. Picture it to look like an old European city that I'm driving in.
3. Erika and other friends are not with me. It is now Alice. And now the objective is to drive her back home to her house in St. Louis. Yea, I have no idea.
4. It gets dark now and a combination of Alex, Ming, and some other people drive by us in a car and wave. And then they disappear, and I wonder to myself where they go. Shrug.
5. The road gets bumpy and my car goes through some sort of mechanical malfunction. Last night it was my steering wheel breaking off somehow. I think to myself, "my dad is going to kill me."
6. After the trauma of something happening to my car, I wake up and breathe a sigh of relief. So, yea. Reoccuring dream.

How many of you noticed that four of the people in the TAF group pic at ITASA below, were photoshopped in?
