OMG. My brother is even less cultured then I am.
We were watching the Travel Channel China Week. Samantha Brown was doing this show on Xian (Shee-an) and my brother is sitting there and he turns to me and goes, "Do Chinese people exist?"
I then laughed harder then almost any other time in my life. Scratch that. I've laughed harder before. But I mean, I laughed harder then when he asked me who the president of Oklahoma was.
So of course I tell him that in fact, Chinese people do exist. See, if I lived in New York this wouldn't be a problem. We just live in boring uncultured California. JUST KIDDING! I LOVE living in California. Even if it has weird weather. We just have that awesome relaxed SoCal vibe. Which is great for wound up people like me! Any who, as I was saying, my brother was unaware that Chinese people exist. I mean, I shouldn't be one to talk. When my mom and I were quizzing each other on important dates, she asked me when Christmas was, and I said December 26th. What can you say, I'm a good Jew!
Later that evening:
My brother asks me what Chinese people do. So I tell him they eat dogs. Then my mom yells at me because she thinks he'll meet a Chinese person and make a fool out of himself. But they do eat dogs! Then my mom is all, "Not all of them!" And I'm all, "I know, I'm friends with a Chinese vegetarian!" Which is true. Yo, Kira!
So, in conclusion, one of the consequences of living in LA and being Jewish is you are unaware that Chinese people exist. Once again I am very sorry if I insulted any Chinese people.
On to a totally unrelated topic!
We were driving home from my grandparents this morning and I see a Wisconsin liscense plate. The conversation I then had with my mother went something like this:
Me: Wisconsin. That's random.
Mom: Yeah, they're pretty far from home.
Me: Well, they came to California, which is better. At least they have good taste.
Mom: But Wisconsin has cheese.
Me: But happy cheese comes from happy cows, and happy cows come from California.
I love that commericial. IT'S FUNNY!
OK, that's all I have to say for today. Oh, that rhymes! Well, onto bigger and better things....... Well, not really I'm probably just going to go AIM someone.....
