There’s a weird phenomenon going on out there. I’m not sure if I’m the only person noticing it.

Okay, so statistically speaking, Asians as a whole are not a very large population group in the US, unless you perhaps live in California, where I hear it’s a lot larger. (Wonder if they have any good Chinese places?)

Where I live, the population, racially speaking, is made up of about 50% black people, and the rest are whites, hispanics and whoever else comes around.

So here’s the weird thing. Every time I go to Sams Club, which is like Costco, all I see are Asian people! They’re everywhere! Well, Asians and Indians (dots not feathers) who are really Asian as well. It’s just so damn weird, I can’t get over it. And the Indian women are always buying buttloads of milk. Always. That and Pepsi products.

Another place I see a lot of Asian people is at the YMCA, in the pool. Now, mind you, I don’t see Asian people at the YMCA workout room, just in the pool. It’s like the Asian free for all down in the shallow end. I just don’t get it. Where are they all coming from?

There’s also a disproportionate amount of naked people in the locker room at the YMCA. Especiallly naked old people. From what I saw this weekend, I guess the downstairs hedge is the first to go once you’re knocking on death’s door.

There was this old lady (who was probably in her 70s) standing aroud butt naked in the locker room, as if it’s totally approperiate to be in there naked for hours. She would stand there and have conversations in the nude. It totally freaked me out. Old people shouldn’t get naked. They should bathe in their clothes or something.

Speaking of weird, have you ever noticed how many homeless people hang out at the library?? I’m talking TONS. That might explain why the place smells like piss, and why I dread going in there so much.

    Have you checked to see if a movie crew is following you around… with a couple carloads of Asian “extras?”

    I loved this post. Why? Because I notice these kinds of phenomena, too! You’re not alone, hon. Just observant.

    OMG, yes, Asians in the pool…always been that way at my gym, in Seattle, and now in SoCal. Speaking of Seattle, there is a huge population of Asian in Seattle and surrounding areas. So much so that when I moved to SoCal I kept wondering where they went. :P

    And the whole old ladies walking around naked in the gym I will never understand. Maybe at the age one finally reaches a point where they don’t give a crap, but hey, we do, mm’kay?

Gimme a friggin’ break, GOP. And now Bush is yelling at us from the golf course… HAHAHAHAHA! My God make it stop! Now they’re playing “Isn’t She Lovely” as Laura Bush saunters in! HAHAHAHAHAHAH! Fragmented speech! Ow, ow, ow. My stomach hurts…
