the woman, the myth, the legend
kimberly. 21. vietnamese american, studying law in the uk. sarcastic, some may even say witty. opinionated but open-minded which some may say is an oxymoron. judges people by their icons. your go-to guy gal for googlefu/technology/nerdy needs. plays a lot of video games. lazy about lj updates. writes about footy and tv and media to make up for the fact that her life is not remotely interesting.

"Kim, you are a caricature of an Asian stereotype." - operantbehavior
"As always, Kim is right." - prthecrazyone

"The only thing that sustains one through life is the consciousness of the immense inferiority of everybody else, and this is a feeling that I have always cultivated." - Oscar Wilde

"I used to hate writing assignments, but now I enjoy them. I realized that the purpose of writing is to inflate weak ideas, obscure reasoning, and inhibit clarity. With a little practice, writing can be a intimidating and impenetrable fog." – Calvin & Hobbes
the beautiful game
i was made for liverpool fc. some affection for fc barcelona and various other spanish teams but i could not actually name their entire squads. i follow the us men's nt out of a misplaced sense of patriotism which does not necessarily include actually knowing the names of the players in the squad. but we all know the us men's nt sucks, so perhaps out of a sense of the colonies returning loyalty to the motherland (except not since the motherland is actually vietnam), follows the english nt more closely. stevie g for captain or bust, baby. likes the spanish nt mostly since liverpool is the spain of england. and there aren't many spanish players i hate, while there are plenty of england ones who can go diaf, but that's my silly club > country thing going on.

i am by no means a tennis expert but it's another sport i enjoy watching. and by that i mean men's tennis because my knowledge of women's tennis is... uh, the williams sisters. roger federer is my king. i like nadal, simon, roddick, and the other tennis pros well enough but federer will always be my number 1 no matter where he is in the rankings.

food is better than-sex, liverpool fc rules my-life, my tingling asian senses, nerdy gadgets, nintendo stuff, not updating my lj, obscene amounts of tv, obscure factoids, rampant egotism, undying love for fictional-characters
