If I had the money and a truck with a trailer...

This would be the powertrain for the T-Bucket . Seriously, I would love to have a battery-powered bucket, but the up-front outlay would break me if I made the range work for cross-country trips between races. 114 more words

Why I'm Not Worried That My Internet Friends Aren't Who They Say They Are

Alternate title: All of the things I did today that are sketchier than making blog friends.

Today we had chemistry! That’s not the sketchy part. We had a test, which K and I did know about, and did study for, and I think it actually went really, really well, with the exception of me not knowing exactly what was going on for one section because the directions were unclear. 1,020 more words

西崽

公司附近有間餐廳,叫西崽(音宰)。聽講係以前香港幫洋人老闆打工,識講英文嘅跑腿或者助理,就叫西崽  。

因為係好多老外住嘅地方,我呢排受嘅氣,都係英文嘅多。有唔少你會覺得難明。唔係佢講嘅英文難明,而係如果咁勞氣,要不滿、要投訴,都問你個名寫 email, 或者索性去第二間啦,點解成日要黎你舖頭樣衰衰,甚至發爛渣?

我覺得係岐視。尤其係聽到你英文唔夠好就發爛渣嗰啲,無分男女,富窮,年紀,喺香港幾耐。我望落去,覺得佢哋似乎自尊心受損,又走唔甩香港地,就發晦氣睇你唔順眼。

仲有啲假洋人,嫁咗鬼佬就扮西人,唔同你講廣東話。查實仲有口音,講電話就最聽得出。

呢度唔同港島區嘅係,港島多咗啲唔係嫁鬼佬,都扮西人嘅女人。

以上人士,一聽到正宗白人英文,條氣即刻順晒。

如果唔係我服務嗰位西人,係和藹可親嘅大好人,幫我講啲純種白人英語打發佢哋,我呢個西崽都真係幾難撈落去。
