as a japanese american Dec. 8th, 2010 @ 12:45 am

I don't think I can ever commemorate Pearl Harbor Day. It just makes me think of Executive Order 9066, the incarceration of Japanese Americans, and the incredible resentment I harbor toward FDR.

Imagine being in the 442nd or 100th Battalion and fighting for your country while people who look like you and have last names like yours are incarcerated in remote camps with guards pointing their machine guns into the fenced area. Let's not even get started on the loyalty questions.

It just makes me sad.

meet lucy Dec. 5th, 2010 @ 07:53 pm

On Ravelry, there was this thread asking for name suggestions for a new family pup. The breeder described her as not a diva, but confident and full of herself, so I thought it was only fitting to suggest Lucy, a la Lucy van Pelt (like in my avatar)! Well, a couple days ago, I got a message from the original poster saying that her family had chosen my name suggestion and now she's sending me a package from! Yay!

Isn't Lucy SO adorable?

I came home from my parents' house to find a Steam window open saying I'd received a gift! My friend Lev gave me Osmos on Steam!
