Today was eventful. The first day of my new job at the hoity-toity hotel. The submittal of my one week's notice at the New World. Malcolm X's birthday, as noted by Z. the disabled black man waiting in his sleek black Lexus for a take-out order of fried rice and "chicken" nuggets. A letter in transit from my old high school in San Diego to UC Berkeley, informing that yes, Miss Sun did take AP German nearly a decade ago so can she finally graduate? And tomorrow? Onward ho, with bird book, notepad and dictionary in tow!
