  1. I know so much of my extended family. I wouldn't equate extended with distant.
  2. If bad stuffing ruins the holiday, I fear what implications of quality it means for the rest of your food.
  3. Immediate would be tough, but extended? I'm honestly surprised I don't have a Daniel in my extended family: we're mostly white and blue collar. The names are often as common as the people.
  4. My spouse, who has been unflaggingly supportive of me and my shifting gender identity, and who is caring, funny, compassionate, and super cute to boot. Also to the friends who have checked in throughout the pandemic, who are always positive and friendly, And my writing community which has been inspiring even as I'm struggling to find mental space to write during a pandemic
  5. Great for the digestive system
  6. This doesn't sound like you can't eat kimchi, Which is good news, because farting aside, it's the best
  7. Gushers Fried chicken and waffles Takis Salt and vinegar chips
  8. Once I made friends with a former white supremacist. I was the first person he came out to. We went on one date, but we really weren't each other's type. I haven't heard from him in a long time, but I hope he's still working on unlearning all the horrible shit he'd grown up around.
  9. Sorry, forgot this was about oral. Total Pharyngeal
  10. TP better stand for total penetration
  11. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.cnn.com/style/amp/interior-chinatown-national-book-award-intl-hnk-scli/index.html His novel "Interior Chinatown," [is] a satire about typecasting and racism in Hollywood. The novel, published in January by Pantheon Books, follows an Asian film actor stuck in the background roles of "Generic Asian Man" or "Delivery Guy" with very few lines, while yearning to one day become the "Kung Fu Guy." In a virtually-streamed ceremony, the 2020 judging committee praised the book, which was written in the form of a screenplay, as a "wonderfully inventive work." "By turns hilarious and flat-out heartbreaking, Charles Yu's 'Interior Chinatown' is a bright, bold, gut punch of a novel," said the judges' statement. When accepting the award on camera, Yu was visibly surprised, laughing in disbelief. "I can't feel anything in my body right now. I prepared nothing, which tells you about how realistic I thought this was," he said, quipping that it all felt like a simulation. "I will probably just stop talking now," he added. "I'm going to go melt into a puddle right now." Yu's previous works include the science-fiction novel "How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe" and two collections of short stories. He has also written for television, notably for the hit HBO show "Westworld." "INTERIOR CHINATOWN is hilarious, poignant, and painfully relevant," tweeted Viet Thanh Nguyen, a Vietnamese-American novelist who won the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction. As somebody who loved his first novel, this novel, and his story "Fable," this win is a remedy to the dismal news of 2020 Read "Fable" here: https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2016/05/30/fable-by-charles-yu
