Here we go, one more time, everybody's feeling fine. [Apr. 3rd, 2006|09:20 am]

Yesterday, we went to the Cherry Blossom Festival at the Rose Bowl. It was... eh... okay. Not as nice as the one in Washington, D.C., (which I had the opportunity to see a couple years ago) but it was... okay. It wasn't even inside the Rose Bowl; it was in this allocated space *cough*parking lot*cough* and fenced off from the soccer game(s) taking place two hundred feet away. We only stayed for one show (the Mariachi Divas - I know, you wouldn't think of mariachi and cherry blossoms belonging in the same sentence - but they're multi-cultural and had one Japanese player) before we left. All in all, it was... okay. I guess that's my word of the day. "Okay". I don't think we'd go to see it next year.

Question: how long do you think is the appropriate amount of time to wait for a response to email before emailing again? (taking into account the weekend, daylight savings, having a life outside of the internet, numerous other lj community responsibilites, watering the plants, walking the dog, etc.) I'm just curious... because I'm anxious... but I don't want to appear pushy.

Ooo...is this about a guy? (As if whatever you answer with change the fact that I'm NOT an authority...)

I was down in DC on Saturday. :) I was supposed to run in the Cherry Blossom 10-miler, but then my illness decided to make a come-back Sunday morning...bleh... I did take pictures on Saturday. When I post them, you can live vicariously!

LOL... no, I have no guy in my life. (well, my dad doesn't count.) The email is about an lj rpg (I submitted an app a couple weeks ago, and a friend *cough*sevarem*cough* suggested I email the mod to inquiry the status).

As for guys - I have no idea what the appropriate time/response is. I'm so out of the loop, I might as well be in a convent.

I think the cherry blossoms in DC are beautiful. I like the magnolia trees too. It's funny, because I didn't know they were magnolias until I went to DC. My friends and my conversation:

Me: Oh! Those look like the flowers in Mulan [the Disney movie].
My best friend: They are. Mulan means magnolia in Chinese.
Me: It does? [no wonder she couldn't be called Mulan when she was pretending to be a boy.] I didn't know that. Cool.
My other friend: You both are funny!

If you decide to join one [a convent], do let me know. Seems we're in a similar boat!

That is hilarious! I didn't know that's what her name meant either!

It was funny because my mom never told me that's what Mulan meant either.... the movie came out in 1998? and I didn't find out until 2002 or 2003.

I'll join the crowd of clueless people about the name "Mulan".

Sorry that it was just "okay".

I think about 3-4 days would be fine.

Here we go now...

If you haven't received a response by the end of the work day...then you can email again without seeming overly pushy.

Mm, well I spoke to one of the mods and they said they were doing another round of casting shortly. I'm not sure when "shortly" is, but I'm just passing on information.

PS: You didn't hear it from me, but I am fairly certain *cough* that you are being cast as your chosen character.

It's been a little over three weeks, I think, since I submitted the app. I didn't email them again; I figured they were busy. ah well... I just have to keep myself busy doing other stuff (like fic writing ;) ).
