• maggie: yeah how are you even so skinny? rachel, all you ever do is eat.
  • rachel: ummmm..... i don't know, i got lucky?
  • maggie: yeah ok sure whatever rachel, at least you can't threaten to sit on people.
  • rachel: what?
  • maggie: yeah, like i do that and it works ALL THE TIME because it's an actual threat, you couldn't crush anyone by sitting on them. i tell somebody i'm going to sit on them and they back off pretty quickly. :D because who wouldn't be afraid of THIS [[motions at hips]]
  • me: maggie.... i think that's just people's normal reaction to being SIT ON. it's socially abnormal.
  • maggie: yah okay sure whatever.

"We talk a lot today about ‘peace on earth’ and ‘bringing peace’ to war-torn lands and even about the ‘peace process’ itself as if we could manufacture peace if only we had the right ingredients. In truth, peace is always with us, lying dormant in our souls, waiting only for an opportunity to blossom. Certainly, we can help some people cultivate this happy side to their own spirit and share its fruits with others; but like so many things in life, it is a job that everyone ultimately must do themselves. Because of this, I ask anyone who reads this book to do three things. 

First, never pass up an opportunity to laugh. It is music to the dance of life.

Second, remember that your soul is always a little bit in debt: to your ancestors, to someone known or unknown who may have helped you, to the universe that gave you life. Don’t die a spiritual debtor, leaving bills for others to pay. Do your part to make our world a little better.

Finally, don’t worry too much about forgiving your enemies— at least right now. It is enough to forgive yourself. A person worthy of such compassion will likely do no more harm in the world, and very likely do much good. 

Remember, we are all in the same boat, we all must help each other—thuyen bac ai— and our journey never ends. The only choices we really have are those we make for ourselves. If they are the right ones, we will only make them once, then move on to better things.”
— Le Ly Hayslip (When Heaven and Earth Changed Places)

once, when i was maybe seven, my parents ordered chinese takeout that (for some reason) i didn’t want to eat. so instead my mom prepared a plate of rice for me and put a little bit of butter and parmesan cheese on it. i have no idea why, but it was outstandingly delicious. i remember eating rice with butter and parmesan that night at dinner, vividly.

unfortunately, last night i did not realize how much more i was drinking than is good for me, and i have been a miserable hung-over zombie for hours now, trying in vain to put good things into my body that will help it metabolize and get over whatever i did to it. oatmeal is supposed to be great for hangovers…. but i found all i wanted to eat was rice.

so i made some rice. and i put butter and parmesan and a weeee pinch of soy sauce on it and it was amazing. i think it’s probably the first time i’ve eaten that since i was seven. and it’s still amazing.
