first few days

Collapse )

- always smells like fish; always humid. the nights are as hot as the days (my dad explains: at night, everyone turns on their a/c so it makes everything hot).
- i should not cross streets alone. i am waaaay too slow for it. will get run over before i even realize i'm not on the sidewalk anymore.
- no one understands when you say "excuse me." you gotta push and shove.
- salespeople are aggressive with or without commission.
- men really like to grope.

this is going to be a long 2 months.

Conan Christopher O'Brien

Conan O'Brien grew up in a large, Irish Catholic family in Massachusetts. At an early age, he began a love of comedy and goofing off, this carried on when he entered the prestigious Harvard University, acting out many pranks in his time, as well as become the president of the Harvard humor magazine, the Harvard Lampoon. After leaving Harvard, Conan found his way into a television writing job in LA. After jumping around on many unsuccessful shows, Conan moved out to New York to win an Emmy for his writing on "Saturday Night Live" (1975). Later, he moved on to work for "The Simpsons" (1989), when SNL Executive Producer Lorne Michaels offered him the job of producer for the now vacant 12:30 slot on NBC. Conan, after searching for a new host, decided to audition for the job himself, and eventually wound up as the host of "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" (1993).
