Where is Chung Ho when we need him?

I'll be having Chinese food and perhaps do laundry.

I'll hand out oranges to my students

I'll start celebrating by correcting OP's English.

"who's" = "who is"

"whose" = possessive.

Please make a note of it.

Meanwhile, my Vietnamese-American partner and I will make our 22nd trip together down to San Jose for the gargantuan family banquet.

I will shave my beard and get a haircut. He used to publicly announce to my MIL that I'm pregnant, but that joke got old -- as did we. Talk about your passive-aggressive way of forced acknowledgement of our relationship.

Pops died, so the gay uncles will pass out the Red Envelopes to 11 nieces and nephews this year. Today I relieved our bank branch of all their new and crisp $2 and $50 bills. I fought among a dozen old Chinese ladies. I'm a big bitch. Manager said they'd get more bills.

Used to drag my BF to my family's Greek Easter party as compensation/revenge.

LGBT community sidelined from Tet parade but undeterred

February 10, 2013 | 7:33 pm

They stood on the sidelines near the stage, waving wildly beneath six giant hearts, with signs shouting out their love.

LGBT members told to "sacrifice" and stay out of the Tet parade in Westminster on Sunday let their passion speak for their presence. They shared rainbow leis with supporters. They reached out to embrace those who ran up to offer support.

Organizers of the Lunar New Year event would not let them march. And their allies, such as the Union of Vietnamese Student Assns. of Southern California, found out the day before the event that they couldn't let the gay organizations join their entries as guests.

"In the end, it didn't matter. We were so overwhelmed by the reaction of the people," said Natalie Newton, spokeswoman for the Partnership of Viet Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Organizations, which united 250 of its supporters to attend. "We had politicians popping out of their cars to shake our hands. We had ordinary people coming by to shake our hands. We didn't expect any of it. But we were visible. Everyone knew who we were."

Khai Dao, a columnist and activist from Westminster at the parade, said "I absolutely want LGBT involvement" in the holiday gathering. We respect everybody's lifestyle choice. If organizers raise money from the community, then the event should be for everyone in the community."

The Rancho Alamitos Vaqueros marching band, from Garden Grove, performed a special number for the LGBT groups. Children waved South Vietnamese flags, clapping along. With a spot of rain, the turnout this year in Little Saigon proved a few thousand smaller than the usual 10,000 spectators, according to participants.

That's partly because the event fell on the first day of the Lunar New Year, a time, like Christmas morning, when folks may be at home celebrating with family.

Still, dozens of floats rolled by carrying elected officials from the host city, Westminster, along with neighboring Garden Grove, Huntington Beach and Santa Ana. Local banks, tae kwon do studios, Catholic and Buddhist worshippers greeted the crowd from their perch in convertibles or as they strolled along Bolsa Avenue.

Loan Anh Pham, of the Trung Duong Vietnamese language school, marched with students, fellow teachers and parents - all 150 of them wearing traditional ao dai dress and headress. Some of her pupils wore mini-versions of the uniforms of South Vietnamese military veterans. "This is a time to share our stories - those stories of bravery and courage," she said. "The more people who are here, the more we can spread our message."

Grandparents videotaped the sights, some juggling camera equipment and their cellphones, describing the scene to relatives in San Jose and Vietnam. Lion dancers posed for photos snapped from iPads, while women clutched plaid umbrellas.

Ear-splitting fireworks popped up at every corner of Little Saigon as merchants chased out evil spirits for the Lunar New Year, fitting background noise for the parade.

"I live just a block away and woke up to the sounds of people practicing," said Erin McCoy, a horticulturist who brought her boxer, Nica, to the festivities. "This reunion of culture, this day, is very necessary. An understanding of all our backgrounds should be shared in society."

Across a barricaded aisle, Newton stayed hopeful. "The energy created through our activism will help our community. It's up to the LGBT groups to find a way to continue this momentum."

I ate dumplings! They represent gold nuggets for good fortune.

The year of the snake is very treacherous.
