Something else we got? The whole island, locals and visitors alike, asking me and Missy where we were from. The next time someone asks me where I'm from I'm going to say "Venezuela", "Argentina", "Iceland", "Djibouti". It wouldn't really matter where I say I'm from, I would still receive the same reaction as when I tell the truth and say "I'm from here". "You're from here??"
A woman once told me that because I am so white, she wouldn't have guessed I was Chamorro at all. I laughed. And I replied by saying the same thing about her. She did not laugh. She told me that she was full Chamorro. That both of her parents are full Chamorro. She was wrong on so many levels. The first of which, and also the level that reveals that there are more levels, being that one of her grandmothers is full Japanese. Second, I'm not just Chamorro and "white". Refaluwasch represent! Third, thank you for sharing yet another gem of your racist comments that you do a horrible job of hiding. And finally, can I tell you about this rule? It's Golden. It says that you should treat other people the way you want other people to treat you.
Thank you Arts Council for putting this massive event together. I'm really glad to have been a part of it this year.
All of Deece's Saipan's Own Mango Jam and Papaya Preserves were gone by early Sunday afternoon. I'm looking for a good mango supplier. Know of anyone?
I'm also looking for a logo. I could work on one myself, but I just don't have time, and my skillz are a little dull. So...a contest.
- Create a Deece logo. The logo will be used on this website, on clothing, on labels, etc.
- Email it to create (at) deece (dot) net
- If yours is chosen, you get an ajinoMOTO Racing Team t-shirt and credit for the design. But I get the rights to the logo.
Peace out, yo!
