Boy, it's been a long time since I posted here! I've been busy with my other blog, MOMocrats.com, trying to get a Democrat elected to the White House. There have been many emails from Aunty Jo since I last posted but most have centered around Barack Obama who Aunty Jo hopes wins the nomination and the presidency. The longer the Dems battle it out, the crankier Aunty Jo gets, so for the health of happiness of my family, let's hope Obama gets the nomination soon.
This week's email is regarding the JC Penney Asian Excellence Awards. Now, there are many fine people (Tila Tequila, Kimora Lee Simmons, Hung from Top Chef) in the running for awards this year, but the one Aunty Jo encourages everyone to vote for is Carrie Ann Inaba. You see, back in the day in Honolulu, Carrie Ann and I used to take ballet class together. Our moms took turns driving that carpool and once, they both thought the other one was picking us up from school and no one realized the error until, like, 5:30. We had been waiting at school the entire time because our moms were off getting perms or something.
Every once in a while, when Carrie Ann is doing something that needs voting on—like trying to win the Dance Wars or going up against Vern Yip for an award—the auntie email chain starts. Carrie Ann's mom emails a bunch of aunties including my mom, they email me, and so on. It's the coconut wireless in full effect.
So unless you want Aunty Jo and her Asian Aunty gang to come calling, vote for Carrie Ann Inaba.
