I went from severely questioning this post to absolutely loving it by the end. Good work.
OT: Iris Macadangdang, The Legend
Dude, thanks for the props. I still fear the Ban Hammer.
This diary is bizarre because I had a Spanish class with her several years ago before I graduated. I think it was Spanish 232 with Andy Noverr. We were usually paired up in class for dialog exercises. Small world. Either way, I saw the diary title and wondered if I had read it correctly.
But yeah, she's pretty cool. And she listens to Pat Metheny, which is pretty cool, too.
I took 232 my freshman year with Andy. Cine and media or something like that.
I'm pretty sure it was Winter '06. And yeah, mine was Cine, too.
Andy was awesome. One of my favorite lecturers.
Ooo...Fall '03. Easily one of the best classes I took, nearly exclusively based on the fact that Andy was the lecturer. Also, he made us watch soft-core Spanish porn.
Aw man, I never got to see any softcore porn.
Which movies did you guys watch? We had the Spanish Apartment (which I missed altogether), Men With Guns, La Lengua De Las Mariposas, Maria Full of Grace, and The Motorcycle Diaries.
Didn't get the Spanish Apartment, but did get Y Tu Mama Tambien (softcore porn). I'm pretty sure we saw the others, save Maria Full of Grace. We saw TYMT in a small, private screening room in the MLB. I didn't even know they had those at that point, and never had any other reason to go to a private screening room again.
Oh, I'd never seen Y Tu Mama Tambien, but I'd heard a lot about it. Never had heard it was basically a softcore porn, though. Haha.
I'm not sure who this Caesar guy is, but this is the second post of his and he reminds me of a lost creative writing major. Labeling "OT" is fine and good, but at a certain point doesn't this remind you of Talladega Nights and Will Ferrell and "all due respect, but..." In a way it's acceptable, but not really. Lions and Pistons and favorite Zingerman's sandwich all seem like somewhat acceptable OT threads, but "I have Iris Macadangdanged during a game" rubs me the wrong way, to carry the tune.
I suck. I have no life. Her name was mentioned in an MGoBlog post. Please do not take this away from me.
You signed up to post that?
Sorry if it doesn't meet the standards around here. I've read the blog for a while and have been meaning to sign up. I also had a class with Iris once, so reading the name was kinda crazy and I thought I'd jump in.
I figured you were really Caesar.
Also, she probably just blocked you, because she's still on facebook and on my friends list. Not to bum you out or anything.
How can I also shake Tom's hand?
According to facebook I have one mutual friend with Iris Macadangdang.WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
My roommate and I are obsessed with the woman who is Iris Macadangdang. We even changed our dog's name to Macadangdang in her honor. We renamed Macadamia nuts "Macadangdang nuts". We probably say her name 50-60 times per day and have alienated our friends and family. We feel this is not healthy but the power of the Macadangdang has taken over.

All hail, Caesar!
I've never been to Michigan, I really can't stand sports, but I bow, I bow to your infinite creativity.
I no longer remember how I first happened upon the illustrious name Iris Macadangdang, but it's been a while now. And your posts about it fill me with joy. They are goddamn hilarious (as are some of the comments they elicit).
Anyway, thank you. Hubby and I can't stop saying her name, either. Ave atque vale!
