Mil palabras: Isa

Happy Birthday, Isa

Isa loves telling people about her first impression of me way back in the summer of 1998. According to her, I was a snob and because (a) I was from Hacienda Heights and (b) I was in the UCLA band. Lucky for me (and I do mean lucky), Isa and I were placed in the same sections for our composition and political science courses that summer. She was kind of enough to let me use her computer to write my papers and we studied together for poli sci. I’m not quite sure what made her initial impression wear off, but I’m glad it did.

Since that summer, Isa has become one of my closest friends and confidants. I can (and have) tell her anything. She knows me so well that she can tell when I’m lying or holding back on the truth. I can’t lie to her. We’re a lot alike and love to compete with each other. The only times we even get close to fighting or arguing comes in the middle of a Scrabble or Trivial Pursuit game.

Isa moved into the apartment over 2 years ago. It’s been a difficult two years, but having her across the hallway has made it easier.

Happy birthday, roommate!

    Dear Cindylu
    could you please post this to the metroblogging la site and to your own fabulous site. (I have been a lurking fan for about a year now since d-land) I know you like chicano /mexican american history and I thought you’d be interested to know that a famous Chicano artist’s work is about to be destroyed for questionable development purposes and we need all the press we can get.

    Oso,
    I actually just avoided her when she tried to fumigate me. She was super apologetic and gave me flowers. I can’t be pissed off at her that long.

    HP,
    Actually, we haven’t played Scrabble in a while. We’re both pretty good at spelling.
