The following was written because I really like lists…and because all my roommates have been sleeping for the majority of the day while I’ve been in my bed for most of the day. No interaction = no memorable quotations.

New Year’s Resolutions:
1. Keep my weight and become more toned. Sexy abs.
2. Call Simon a lot more than I have been since the beginning of the year…which has been none. But, he has a crazy cute little puppy who loves to poop inside the house. So, in a way, it’s like a part of me is with him since he has a cute little animal who is WAY more trouble than she/he is worth. I love you Simon. Seriously. Best friends since the first day of sophomore year in high school when I kicked him in the shins.

Current Obsessions:
1. BURN NOTICE (Spy comedy-drama on USA network)
2. Luna Sunrise Bar in Blueberry Bliss flavor (energy bar for women)
3. Dumplings
4. Lush Cosmetics (Organic, cruelty-free, vegetarian soaps, lotions, and etc)
5. Green tea
6. Dark chocolate-covered  raisins

On Going Obsessions:
1. Trader Joe’s
2. Gym
3. McDonald’s Baked Apple Pie
4. Activia Vanilla Lite Yogurt
5. Fuji Apples
6. Supermarkets, specialty markets, farmers’ markets
7. and

So…I realized a lot of this is food or related to food. Thank goodness I like going to the gym.

Oh wait, here are two quotations from a couple days ago that still make me giggle:

On my wanting to tone my arms:
Chengyee: Don’t you get Madonna arms! I’ll smack you with my wimpy arms!

On my friend’s first impression of me:

M: My first impression of you was so wrong. It cracks me up.
Me: What was it?
M: I thought, “Oh my god. She has pretty eyes. I hate her.” Then I thought “she’s so quiet! she’s one of those girls that all the guys like because she’s so feminine and pretty!”. WOW, I was so wrong. You are not quiet. Not feminine. At least not in personality? Who burps like that?!

While waiting for the USC tram and watching the rain from inside our apartment building lobby:

Michelle: You know, it’s really just drizzling. Why don’t we walk?
Cheng-yee: Because Jenny doesn’t like rain. She’s like a cat. Let’s stick her in a trashcan and roll her there.
Michelle: She’s a cat?
Me: I was born in the year of the tiger.
Michelle: Oh!
Me: And you’re our little bunny!
Michelle: [smiles and makes two little bunny ears on her head] Yay!

Naomi’s George: Have you heard of Michael Bublé?
Me: Mike Birbiglia?
George: No, Michael Bublé.
Me: Mike Birbiglia?
George: No, Michael Bublé.
Me: Mike Birbiglia?
George:….Michael Bublé.
Me: …Mike Birbiglia? Are we talking about a comedian?
Naomi: No, he’s this French guy…He does Frank Sinatra covers…
Me: OH!!!! Michael BUBBLE!
George and Naomi: ….[thinking: oh my God, Jenny is SPECIAL]

Where Am I?
