She's always very friendly to me, probably because I'm always the only Chinese person in the whole joint. Anne says they should pay me to eat there, since I lend some authenticity to the place, which is otherwise filled with Mexicans and African-Americans. She also gets very excited about the kids, the fact that they can count to three in Chinese, and that they look just like their Chinese father, in spite of their mixed blood from my Caucasian wife. I don't have the heart to tell her they are both adopted from Kazakhstan, and they learned to count in Chinese from some video my Caucasian wife borrowed from the local library.

Threw some fresh mint in with the pasta tonight and it was quite nice. I think I will continue this in the future.

Pasta = Jalapeno sausage, onion, and garlic (sauteed olive oil), mixed with cappellini, fresh diced tomatoes, mint, parmesan, salt and pepper.
