Tonight at dinner, Dan dissected the Myers-Brigg scale, in particular the introvert vs. extrovert label. He gave the classic definition of how introverts recharge their batteries through time alone, a concept he strongly identifies with.
Me: I'm starting to feel like our conversations are just combinations of the same topics, repeated.
Dan: Yeah, we need to determine the eigenvectors of our conversation. Then we can never talk again. I can recharge my battery forever!
Me: That's not good, Dan. Batteries that are fully charged for too long will lose their capacity.
Dan: [look of contempt]
At lunch with Dan some time ago, at Google Cafe 150.
Me: Speaking of Asian fetishes, here comes Ozzir.
Ozzir: [walking over to our table] Hey.
Me: Dan, this is my friend Ozzir from YouTube. Ozzir, Dan.
Dan: [to Ozzir] So you're being used as an example of a white guy with an Asian fetish.
Ozzir: 'Fetish' sounds so strong. I like to call it an Asian 'preference'.
Dan: But you can't be that bad. I mean, you may have an Asian fetish, but at least you didn't move to China.
Ozzir: I moved to Japan. I'm just visiting for this week.
