So, here you have it — the view from my window.
Welcome and thanks for stopping by,
Kimchi & Collard Greens! Absolutley Love the title you go right ahead and keep on giving your opinions! Best of luck to you
Thanks, Thomasina! I’m so glad that you like the title!
I demand a 90% cut of all your………er congrats Kym!!
Thanks, Phil! I think the typical manager’s cut is one quarter of one half percent. Your checks in the mail.
Congratulations on your new blog, Kym! You’ve always been one of the smartest, funniest people to me, and while the stand up comedy thing I kept mentioning must not be your thing, mayhap this writing will be fun for you and get your brilliance to the four corners of this big blue marble of ours!
Looking forward to reading more…
Thanks! Stage lighting is not a good look for me; but pics can be photoshopped! Maybe if I’m having a real good hair day, I’ll grab a mike!
I think that you have company in the “most opinionated” person club. For you its “shut up Kym” for me its “F-U Dan”. I guess I can be a little judgemental with my opinions….LOL
How’d I miss your comment, Dan?!? For the record, I’ve gotten quite a few F-U’s as well
LOVE IT KYM!!!
How U doin!
This is the perfect forum for you, you have an opinion and it matters dammit!
Thanks, Kini! Glad you like it, girl!
I am proud of you Kym. I like it. Keep up the good work. Twitter is a great way to link your blog.
Thanks, Wes!! Glad you like it and glad to know the Twitter link is working!
I will always be around to push!! That’s just what I do!! Love you and you are one of the the funniest people I know (except maybe Justin…although he’s been losing his edge with the baby carriage and all). At the end of the day, you KNOW I will always be around to laugh at your jokes. I’m so proud of you!!
Well, girl – no one is ever going to be as funny as Justin! don’t worry them babies will be walking and talking soon and that’s a whole new batch of material
Finally! You’ve found YOUR calling….we’ll a piece of it. Still waiting on the talk show or comedy tour :). This is fantastic babe! Love love love love love – did I say love?! It! Keep those opinions of yours coming.
Girl, from your mouth to God’s ears! but enough of that did YOU like it? lol! Thanks for the kind words, I’m glad that you like it!
Love the blog and the new format. You are hilarious and it is nice to have it all in one place. Plus the name is AWESOME!
Thanks, Kea! The name comes from the common answer we used to give folks if they asked us if we ate both soul food and korean food at home. It’s weird what people are interested in!
Kym, your posts always have me laughing…keep it up.
Thanks, Rosalene! Appreciate the feedback…especially since it’s good
Everybody says “funny” and yes you make me laugh but … comedy tour? Gonna need a mop! You are the two edged sword and to me the side with the red stuff on it is WAY more important. Go 4 it. Bookmarkin you now. God bless
Thanks for the support…and here’s to the red stuff.
Adding you to my blog roll. I would like to put you on a hoagie roll and eat you up! Be good.
Thanks for settling on the blogroll, lol
Love it, I was wondering what happend to your daily dose on FB. I will keep up with your blog. Love the title very appropriate it really fits your personality. Keep up to great work of keeping your followers infomred, and laughing.
Thanks, Fred! I’m glad you like it! Come back and see us soon
Congrats on the blog! I am expecting GREATNESS!!!!
Thank you, Erika! I’m praying that my well of stupid things to say never runs dry
From the Hilltop to the Blogosphere. Love your wit and knowledge of the issues. Keep it up Kym, greater things await you.
Thanks, Todd!! Glad you found it!!
I am so proud of you Big sis!!!!!! This is so freakin hopefully I can be as successful.They’ve always told me I have your sick sense of humor and I do love me some facebook. For now I will settle for just commenting on everything you blog about. Just remember to let these jokers have it dont hold anything back censure-ing sucks! LMBAO
Just realized I missed your comment, Sissy Poo! Thanks for the love, babe!
WOW what a perfect blend of items that states who you are. I have not thought of kimchi since our apartment in Philly. Are you as strong as your grandmother yet?
lol, harriet…i think of kimchi every day! I’m not yet as strong as my grandmother but I am as strong as an ox
Okay, I’m all in.
sounds like trouble, my friend!! lol!
I LOVE the title of your blog!!!! I’m from Savannah, Ga where collard greens abound, AND I have a serious kimchi (and any other korean food) addiction LOL. I’m definitely bookmarking you girl!
Thanks for the love, Ahngele in Savannah! Come back and see us soon!
This is GREAT!!! I love it! Do you!!
Thanks, man! Glad you like it!
Well, Kym… I was told something like that when I was kid growing up also… mine was… “you talk to much” . I was actually held back a half a year in grade school because I talked to much in class… instead of directing all that talking energy into something positive for me as a kid… I was held back! … but I am glad I was like that in the end.. cause I still talk to much… but now I have something to say (I think) … that has significance and value, as a senior member in society now. I also have a three wordpress websites… one for Jazz, History & Obama. I’ll leave you the links. … Glad to be your friend Kym.
Awesome, can’t wait to see your websites! And keep sharing your views, these young whippersnappers need all the help they can get these days
Would it be too nerdy to include a brief definition of kimchi, its alternate spellings, and mention that you are half Korean and half African-American, and that this background inspired the title? Mayhap you could also mention other similar titles of works by interracial/inter-cultural folks out there in the media, like Rain Pryor’s award-winning show “Fried Chicken & Latkes” (half African-American & half Jewish), for example? Mayhap you prefer to be mysterious, and whatever your style is, you will have your fans and your naysayers, so it’s all good But I just am all about information and noticed there’s no mention of what kimchi is. Not everyone is as worldly as thyself
That’s a fantastic idea!! I’ll get to work on it right away. Truth be told, some folks don’t know what collard greens are either!
Have to disagree strongly with the content of your “About Me” page!
Doesn’t tell me anything.
Where? What? Who? Why?
Ahhh, progress! You disagreed with that my last post “completely” now it’s only strongly! Before you know it we’ll be fast friends!! Welcome! Diggin’ your blog by the way, very provocative…
OK but in my petty, parochial British way, I need to know where you are! I have to have my antennae properly aligned otherwise I get confused and disorientated.
Where are you provoking me from?
LOL!! Lovely Philadelphia, PA. It’s where I do my best provokin’
Miss Sunshine, how in the heck are you? Guess where my maternal DNA originated? Yes, you were right about my possible Asian DNA and guess what NONE of my maternal lineage was Africa but Asia. We are more connected than Spanks. Miss you my friend/sista and all around drinking partna.
I knew it! You must be related to my mother’s cousin’s sister’s father’s brother’s cousin n’em…twice removed, of course! Hey, Boo!!
And you know I always loved Kimchi with some vinegar….
lol, love it! and welcome!
hit me up on myspace so I can move you next to Barack.
I don’t think I’m on myspace. But I’m everywhere else. Find me! Find me, Buttercup!
You remind me so much of someone…Me.
High praise indeed, my friend. It must be because we have the same hairstyle…(wink!)
I am not on Facebook Sunshine…
Sunshine, we are here watching “Michael Jackson This Is It” scene “I Cant Stop Loving You” and I am just taken aback at his greatness. Last year , I actually attended the memorial at the Staples Center I still mourn this loss. Wow 1 year of him moving on to Glory….
Besos from Buttercup
He was truly an amazing artist! I can’t believe it’s been a year already.
Hi, nice to meet you !
Hello and welcome!! Nice to meet you as well. Y’all come back and see us now…y’hear?
I like your writing style – speak frankly.
Shut up, Kym – I love your blog and Twi… Oh… Wait… That’s not your real name? Lol but seriously. Thank you for the chance to read your thoughts and for the comfort and reassurance you give that people who think on a tangent and who’s creativity screams volumes with an ‘odd sound’ are still people too and just as much appreciated
Welcome and thanks for reading!
Just found you via GTChristie and what a find!
I love your thoughts and your writing style…brilliant. I am signing up for more.
Thanks, Lois! Welcome
Dang, Kym…I thought after your “fireworks” hair creation…you were inspired to take that other job. It would have offered ALOT of tips and gave you upper body strength due to all the work on the pole. …But if you want to show your God-given intelligence, compassion, wit, charm and beauty…I guess …I will support you. Congratulations on doin’ your thang!
Alanna, a well-placed stripper reference is the way to my heart! Thanks, sista!
I enjoy the view from your window — and your lively writing style. Keep it up!
Thanks, Sbeland! there’s plenty of room at the window…feel free to add your opinion to the mix!
Ok, I only came by your page because Julie Tanen a friend of mine “liked” your page, and it popped up on my fb page. So I went to see what she was “liking” – (because I don’t do a whole lot of fb page likes). Then I thought…hmmm she’s cute, so I then I “liked” your page too. Then I started reading, laughing, agreeing and disagreeing. I said to myself, ‘WoW ‘so these are her thoughts! Ok, ok, ok. But I kept reading and I must say it’s was worth ‘liking’ as well as ‘stopping’ by. You definitely have the gift of honest expression.
lol, Hi, Donell…if you had all my thoughts and a nickel, you’d still only have 5 cents…maybe even 4. In that vein, thanks for spending the time! Come back soon!
ps. I also thought that you were going to be writing about southern cooking! ie: Collard Greens…lol
Everyone that I’ve shared this article with has shed a tear. Thank you for putting into words the truth that makes us take hard looks at ourselves.
Thank you for sharing…and you’re welcome.
Your title struck me so hard Kym. I am of Vietnamese and Black descent. I grew up around homemade Kimchi, spring rolls, fried chicken, Peaches & Herb, and Stevie Wonder.
Add rice…and you’ve just described the perfect evening!
Thoroughly enjoying the intelligently sarcastic insight articulated as only someone more deranged than I could deliver…..great stuff
lol, Gerold…high praise indeeed, my friend! Thanks for reading!
Eek…I have a blog by the same name (though I haven’t posted in years), also on wordpress. Well, I guess that just means we’re two soulful spice gals.
