I get a sick kind of thrill watching tea party footage on YouTube (same feeling washes over me when listening to my cousins lamely rant about Obama being a socialist, while unable to accurately define the word “socialism”). This week’s March on Washington was no exception–the ultimate assemblage of loud, confusing folks, touting clever catch phrases like “Fire Those Wacky Czars” and “Thank You Glenn Beck,” and protesting… well, just about everything.
Truth be told, I was rather unimpressed by most of the weekend protesterszzZZzZZz, who didn’t seem to bring anything really new or interesting to the tea party table!
But one guy from the selection above actually did catch my eye:
He got me thinking. I was like, OMG, I really struggle with learning languages. My Vietnamese is nil and my Spanish pretty spotty. How the fuck am I going to learn Chinese? We DEFINITELY need to stop the spending (whatever that means)!
But then I realized, if we DON’T stop the spending (whatever THAT means), maybe there’s a slim chance that at some point down the line, somebody might SPEND and BUY me Rosetta Stone for Mandarin. Then I could develop a sharp alternative speaking tongue! THEN Jen (who speaks Mandarin) and I (who will speak Mandarin) can trash annoying people (their outfits, their poor conversation skills, et cetera) with our secret language right in front of their face, whenever we want! How cool would that be?!?!?!? THEN I WOULD BE THE HAPPIEST PERSON IN THE WORLD!
I wish I could tell that dude “thank you” for calmly presenting both options and helping me cement my position on learning Chinese. I’m into it! Guys, let’s DO it (whatever that means)!!
