In my family its considered food for kids as an entree. Both sides. After a certain age, it wasn't an option. I had to eat the grilled fish, or the picked...whatever that stuff was. Bulgogi showed up for bibimbap and huge gatherings. Maybe gimbap, if it was left over.
I find that the Asians cool with ricer are not from areas with large Asian populations. I grew up using the term "sport compact" or "import." Ricer makes me cringe.So are a lot of Asians actually cool with using the term ricer?
I'm not into the car scene at all. I live in Ohio and it seems like "ricer" and "Jap car" are used interchangeably out here, so I found it shocking that it seems like a lot of Asians are cool with it.
No Asians I knew or know in Ohio drove "ricers", so I guess I don't get it.Ricer or rice rocket is fine to me if it's an Asian (or honorary Asian) using it.
I grew up only associating with other Asians, and that's what we all called the souped up imports. Mostly to make fun of them :p.
Kind of like how we called the wannabe gangsters "wangsters." You know, soft ass upper middle class boys in their daddy's bmv blasting rap pretending like they're lil Triads. haha
(Obviously I hung with the nerd Asian group [despite being an awful student] so we didn't really have too many rice rockets or wangsters in our midst. I think it was pretty normal high school ribbing on certain stereotypes. Like "Jesus freak," etc, just adapted for the Asian American flavor.)
I have no idea what they called us. No one ever said anything to our faces. Maybe losers? Four eyes? I think 90% of my group had glasses.
Maybe it's a West Coast thing. Lots of people in Hawaii had suped-up Integras, Civics, WRXes, etc.
I'd say the last good one I've seen was in Daredevil and some stuff in Into the Badlands (RIP). Otherwise, most fight scenes are just disjointed strung-together messes between actors who are hired for their faces and not their ability to actually do choreographed movements.
Except the last time we went to one of those places, I WAS SO UNCOMFORTABLE BEING HOVERED OVER.
This reminds me of a thing I noticed with my cousins from Korea. In the US, grilling is seen as a "man cooking" realm So the ones who primarily live in Korea, we all met up in LA and went out and had KBBQ. My cousins, who are all female, were amused that I was the one cooking. I took it upon myself to cook the meat, set the cooked meat aside, put meat on people's plates. No biggie. While, one of the husbands, was ribbing me about doing woman's work. Homie was wearing makeup and giving me shit that cooking meat for my family was somehow calling my masculinity into question.
I used to cook but I always get oil splatters and I'm a wimp and meph is an amazing man that spoils the shit out of me, so...fuck gender norms, I'm lazy and entitled to my food :D. (My guilt at being a Bad Asian Wife is overshadowed by my fear of pain.)This reminds me of a thing I noticed with my cousins from Korea.

I could only see myself doing that if I broke a leg and was in a wheelchair at Disneyland. That warrants a "I need a front of the line pass." Otherwise I don't like excusesHow many times is someone allowed to use their "I have a serious ailment" card?
I've used it twice, once to avoid a felony and the other time to get VIP Fast passes at Disneyland.
But I saw a woman use to as part of a rant to get comped for a meal. She did look hella sick, like, I've seen people like her in my groups.
On one hand, "Really lady? Gonna bust that out for a meal?" On the other hand, "I don't know your life. If you have what I think you have, I understand why you might be a little crazy right now."
Me personally, I was stopped by the police with a felonious amount of cannabis on my person, but my chemo pump got me out of it. And that's how I got the fast passes for my family and I at Disney. I only feel guilty about the Disney one though.
I used to really be like that. Then I got really sick. Then, I’ll be honest, my attitude shifted to “me first” in relation to whom I’m gonna put first, me or my job. But I absolutely understand that mindset.
Use your time. That's what it's there for. You can't take it with you unlike comp or vacation time.
