I spent $215 to make my teeth all pretty for you this weekend.

Just wanna let folks know I went to see the dentist. Not the free dentist but a good guy named Dr. Sakakura that came recommended by my friend Aika. And now my tooth is all fancy and fixed and no more food gets stuck back there.
The show closes this weekend. We shoot it tomorrow for camera so I have to get my beauty sleep.
Here’s the latest review from the LA Weekly.
GO! WONG FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO’S NEST Performer Kristina Wong opens her one-woman show under the pretense that she will, in an earnest yet fun-loving fashion, explore the cultural phenomenon of high rates of suicide and depression among Asian-American women. She then proceeds to fail spectacularly at this task, spiraling into a miasma of pseudoacademic theory and her own expression of identity. So what purports to be an entertaining and educational romp through the oft-trod territory of identity politics dissolves into a humorous and poignant refutation of there being much commonality to the female Asian-American experience at all. Wong’s conclusion is multifaceted and profoundly personal. She eschews indulging maudlin stereotypes while embracing — or maybe even reclaiming — a personal story at the core of every Asian-American woman. Wong’s performance is quick and controlled, allowing her to slowly unveil her portrait of madness with such skill, we barely realize it’s happening.
