I got a chance to watch Sunday's episode of "Grey's Anatomy" yesterday (gotta love TiVo)and was very amused. I love Sandra Oh. I think she is a fantastic actress and of course, she's Korean! Plus, her character is a very strong ambitous woman who isn't afraid of taking risks and getting things done. The show opens with her character dancing while brushing her teeth and listening to her iPod. I started to smile because I sometimes dance around the house if I'm alone. Then I noticed her iPod. I looked at it, then looked at mine on the sofa next to me. After some rewinding and rewatching, I confirmed that it was definitely the same iPod.
Hmm, it had to be coincidence that the one Asian on the show owns an iPod in the color Wasabi. Now, a little backstory. When I looked at buying an iPod, I settled on Wasabi because it was the perfect Ying and Yang. The green fit my Irish Western background and the name of the of the color fit my Asian Eastern background. To see Sandra Oh with it, I had to giggle. Then, when the episode began the final scene, Italian Clover and I really began to giggle. Sandra Oh, was sitting in bed, with a carton of Chinese take-out, eating it with chopsticks. I loved it! This was a character who spoke to me!
Even though I pulled out of the Knitting Olympics, I've been following the activities of fellow knitters and cheering them on.
I'll never be monogamous (with my knitting) again.
