Sarah and I before Christine's Wedding

My sister got married on Sunday, October 23, 2005. It was a lovely wedding and there were a lot of friends and family that attended. Sarah and I were the gift attendants. We took some pictures, but I'll upload more pictures as I get them from other people.

The European Commission has just announced an agreement whereby
English will be the official language of the European Union rather than
German, which was the other possibility. As part of the negotiations, the British Government conceded that English spelling had some room for improvement and has accepted a 5-year phase-in plan that would become known as "Euro-English".

In the first year, "s" will replace the soft "c". Sertainly,
this will make the sivil servants jump with joy. The hard "c" will be dropped in favour of "k". This should klear up konfusion, and keyboards kan have one less letter.

There will be growing publik enthusiasm in the sekond year when
the troublesome "ph" will be replaced with "f". This will make
words like fotograf 20% shorter.

In the 3rd year, publik akseptanse of the new spelling kan be
expekted to reach the stage where more komplikated changes are possible.
Governments will enkourage the removal of double letters which
have always ben a deterent to akurate speling. Also, al wil
agre that the horibl mes of the silent "e" in the languag is
disgrasful and it should go away. By the 4th yer people wil be
reseptiv to steps such as replasing "th" with "z" and "w" with

During ze fifz yer, ze unesesary "o" kan be dropd from vords
kontaining "ou" and after ziz fifz yer, ve vil hav a reil sensibl riten

Und efter ze fifz yer, ve vil al be speking German like zey
vunted in ze forst

Used Vegetable Oil Powered Car

I want to get a car that runs on used vegetable oil. Ever since I've heard of people doing that, I've wanted to drive a car like that. Wouldn't that be awesome? You will need to buy a diesel engine car and get a vegetable oil conversion kit from places like

You go to places like Chinese restaurants and ask for their used vegetable oil (non-hydrogenated). Then, you pour the oil into a filter. After that you pour the filtered oil into your diesel engine car. An 1980's Mercedes 300TD would be a great car for this. Those old cars are cheap now and diesel engines last a very long time. With these conversion kits, you get 2 tanks-one for regular diesel fuel to start and warm the car and one tank to hold the vegetable oil.

Once you have a vegetable oil powered car, you will hardly ever have to go to the gas station again. You can get all your oil from restaurants. Once Sarah and I buy a house, I want to do this. Then, I can have a big filter and storage tank in our garage to hold all the vegetable oil fuel. Restaurant owners may be willing to help because you will be taking away their oil for free. Otherwise, they will have to pay a service to have them take the old oil away.

Diesel engines were originally created by Dr. Diesel to run on peanut oil. Later they were changed to run on petroleum. Now, with the conversion kits, they can run on vegetable oil again. These kits cost $500-$1,000. I think they'll pay for themselves within one year. You get the same gas mileage and same horsepower as running on regular diesel. Your car will also perform the same. There won't be any damage to your car either. You have to heat the vegetable oil first though. With the kit, you warm up the engine and the vegetable oil by starting your car with running the diesel fuel first. Otherwise, the vegetable oil will start to coagulate. Once the oil is warmed up, you flip a switch to vegetable oil. This is ingenious!

Thousands of people are already doing this. It's just not main stream yet. This is also environmentally friendly because cooking oil pollutes much less than petroleum based fuels. You can drive as much as you want because you can get the used cooking oil for free. That's ultimate freedom. It might be a hassle collecting and filtering the oil, but I think it will be well worth it.

Best of all, your car will smell like Chinese food or french fries, depending on where you get your vegetable oil. This smells a lot better than diesel and will make everyone in the neighborhood hungry.

The Lover

There was this woman that takes a lover during the day, while
her husband is at work. Without her knowing, her 9 year old son was
hiding in the closet. Her husband comes home unexpectedly, so she hides
the lover in the closet, where the little boy is also hiding.

The little boy says, "Dark in here."
The man says, "Yes it is."
Boy - "I have a baseball."
Man - "That's nice."
Boy - "Want to buy it?"
Man - "No, thanks."
Boy - "My dad's outside."
Man - "OK, how much?"
Boy - "$250."

In the next few weeks, it happens again that the boy and the mom's lover
end up in the closet together.

Boy - "Dark in here."
Man - "Yes, it is."
Boy - "I have a baseball glove."
Man - remembering last time, asks, "How much?"
Boy - "$750."
Man - "Fine."

A few days later, the father says to the boy, "Grab your ball and glove.
Let's go outside and toss the baseball."

The boy says, "I can't. I sold them."

The father asks, "How much did you sell them for?"

The son says "$1,000."

The father says, "That's terrible to overcharge your friends like that.
That is way more than those two things cost. I'm going to take you to
church and make you confess."

They go to the church and the father makes the little boy sit in the
confession booth and he closes the door.

The boy says, "Dark in here."
The priest says, "Don't start that shit again!"

Christine and Sae Woon's Wedding

My sister and Sae Woon's wedding webpage is

You can go check out their site by clicking on the title of this link also. In the beginning, I kept forgetting his name because I'm not good with Korean names. I called Sae Woon, "Ssang Chu", which means lettuce in Korean. I think he's getting used to me being an overprotective brother. Nowadays, it's hard being overprotective because Christine is hardly ever home.

My Little Sister is Getting Married

Christine is getting married on Sunday, October 23, 2005 at 4:00 pm. She is getting married to Sae Woon Jo. They've known each other for a long time.

I hope that they have a wonderful life together.

A Visit to Chris the Dentist's Office

I went to the office of Dr. Chris Choi, D.D.S. this weekend. One of my fillings fell out and I had to get it refilled. I went to his office and he numbed me up really well. After I got my fillings, I couldn't really talk because my tongue and cheeks were numb. I wanted to go get a haircut at the barber's afterward, but decided not to go because I didn't want to sound like I was mentally deficient. "I wanna haicut."

My mouth was numb for 3 hours. I was really hungry later so I wanted to eat something. I ate some watermelon and drooled all over myself. I tried to eat dinner, but I kept chewing on my lower lip since I couldn't feel it. My lip was bloody red afterwards.

All in all, Chris Choi did a great job on my teeth. I highly recommend him. He's funny, patient, and gave me the best prices.*
