"You've got me turning up and turning down"

You ever have one of those days at work where you blink, it’s 5pm and your desk looks like a natural disaster blew by your office? Today was one of those days. I used brain cells that have been hiding dormant.
A spectrum of emotions befuddled me; anxiety, euphoria, anger, complacency, contentment. The last one came after I stole 5 minutes to eat a chocolate pudding.

All I can say is, “What just happened?”

My poor co-workers watched as I fought with a printer and screamed at my monitor.
But alas, the day is over and tomorrow is another day.
I’ll just leave you today with a quick note to the guy I saw on the street by the train station.

Dear Sir:

No, I am not Lucy Liu.
In fact, I do not look like nor am I related to any of the following people:

Margaret Cho
Sandra Oh
Zhang Ziyi
Michelle Yeoh
GoGo Although, I’ve dressed like her for Halloween.
Kaity Tong
Bai Ling
Kristi Yamaguchi
The Pearl Cream Lady
Michelle Kwan
Michelle Yeoh
Mrs. Povich

For the record, I don’t like being told I look like someone. You think it’s a compliment but it’s not. Seriously. I’d like to think I’m unique even in my Banana Republic jacket and my Gap hat.

If you feel the dire need to say I look like someone, stay within the right nationality. Better, yet, don’t talk to a total stranger! Unless my hair is on fire or I’m about to walk into oncoming traffic, let’s just keep our heads down and go about our morning business.

Thank you and have a nice evening.
BTW, did anyone tell you, you look like Steve Zahn from Happy, Texas?
