:: Wednesday, February 02, 2005 ::

So I was staying at a youth hostel in Orlando, and I met a lot of new and interesting people. One night I sat in the lobby eating a snack when an older woman approached me and started a conversation with me. She then introduced herself, so I told her that Sam J was my name. Then she said:

"Sam J? Sam J - OK... Sam J - Got it. I'm getting better and better at Asian names!"

Um, OK...

I certainly don't consider the name "Sam J" to be particularly Asian; maybe if my name were something like "Toyotomi Hideyoshi," then I would understand her comment. But Sam J? Come on now...
