Break has been very good to me so far. I’ve pretty much done nothing (not even IUSTV stuff): I sleep in late, watch a lot of TV, play a lot of video games, and that’s about it. I’ve been playing Mario Baseball, Naruto Narutimate Hero 3, and I just finished…uh, getting, Kingdom Hearts 2, which just came out in Japan a few days ago. Between these games and some of the other ones I brought back with me to St Louis, I think I should have a lot to keep me busy.
So I went to LHS on Thursday. Talked to the electronic media class (video production, where I got my start), visited a bunch of teachers and principals (who surprisingly, all remembered who I was), and actually got some advice on my future. All in all a good trip. Although waking up that early in the morning should be outlawed; I don’t know how I did it back in high school. Nowadays I’m lucky if I can wake up by noon.
It is now a little past midnight, meaning it is December 25th. It’s Christmas, Hanukkah, my birthday, and also the 2-year anniversary of me having this website (even though this is a different domain name, it’s the same site as aleong.com). Now for my proposal. Instead of all these holidays around December time, based on religion, based on “heritage,” or based on the lineup of the stars (I dunno), we should move towards a unified holiday for EVERYBODY. I know just someone who was born around this time that could be used as the base for this holiday. His name is Anthony Leong, and he was born on December 25, 1983. Because everyone already has winter break off for holidays and stuff, let’s keep that all the same. I just propose unifying all the naming of holidays, etc. This will include cards, decorations, etc. Everyone can keep the same stuff they had before, but for political correctness, everyone can just use 1 name for this holiday season. In fact, I have made a sample of a holiday decoration for this new, WORLD UNIFIED HOLIDAY. You can click on it to get a larger version, suitable for print out for use on greeting cards, t-shirts, and wrapping paper:
Yes, that’s right. Leongzwanmasukkah. You get shout-outs to all the other 3 big holidays, but instead of trying to guess which holiday someone celebrates, fiddling with the awkward phrase “Happy Holidays,” or just saying some other generic term for sound P.C., everybody, let’s start using Leongzwanmasukkah. It is a holiday that can be shared by everyone, regardless of religion, race, heritage, species, or number of tails. EVERYONE WINS WITH LEONGZWANMASUKKAH.
Needless to say, this was a good idea when I thought of it. I played Narutimate Hero 3 for about 4 hours solid, ate some freshly baked brownies that my mom made, and am now loafing around some more watching TV. Break is good. Happy Leongzwanmasukkah, everyone. Please send gifts, cards, and kind words.
